Mitt Romney Introduces Paul Ryan as "The Next President of the United States"

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan for Vice President this morning, and apparently thinks very highly of him, as Paul received a promotion within five minutes!

Okay, not really, but in introducing the Wisconsin Congressman and rising GOP star to a Norfolk, Va., crowd, Romney finished his remarks with a gaffe:

"Join me in welcoming the next President of the United States, Paul Ryan!"

Of course ... if President Obama wins reelection, then Ryan wins the White House in 2016, Romney could be proven correct! Chances are that's not what he meant.

Mitt caught his error as Ryan made his way to the podium, then joked that "every now and then I've been known to make a mistake ... I didn't make one with this guy."

"I can tell you this, he's going to be the next Vice President of the United States."

Ryan and his budget-cutting ideas have the potential to transform the 2012 race; both parties responded to his nomination with a "game on" approach.

Support for the mix of spending cuts and tax cuts proposed by Ryan, 42, has become a litmus test on the right, and opposing them a rallying cry on the left.

What do you think: Is Paul Ryan a good choice for V.P.?


@ken1. Why would a Canadian, put down America. You folks in Quebec, and Montreal, can't make up your minds, if you're worthless, like France, and the French, or if you're under British rule. All your tv shows, make believe they're in the U.S. So many of your citizens, come into tHe U.S. to earn a living. Canada is a safe haven for American cowards, who didn't want to fight for their country of America. I don't know about now, but your currency use to be woth 70¢ on our dollar. How would you feel if our armed forces, weren't close by, to protect your country. That being said, Obama is pro- Communist, thanks to a guy that might be his biological father. It's hsrd to tell, since his mother was a whore. As president, Obama is not right, for the most powerful, greatest, country in the world, and I'm not talking aboot(not a typo) Canada. I'm talking about, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.


@Canadian 101....What exactly does "God" have to do with your post?Just curious.........


Canada 101...take a USA 101 course. We gave you of American cars are made up there...we sent you the opportunities to have jobs! Can you spell t-h-a-n-k-s??? Really, why do the Canadians get so very opinionated about the politics of the USA? What personal investment you do have in it? I don't lose sleep over Canadian politics! I could care less. I'm NOT a Canadian....are you? I mean....REALLY?!?


I've never commented on this site before but wtf! You keep us afloat? USA would be screwed without canada !! You are just a ignorant stupid American who actually probably believes that we live in igloos haha god pick up a book sometime learn about what's going on in the world


@Ken1 - Your another useless Canadian piece of huskie Dog shit! This is how you spend your days talking to Americans? We are the only thing that makes you miserable frozen turds exist. You fit right in with these TROLLS. The same trolls that write on here and pretend they are from Canada with such handy advice on healthcare.


Both Democrats and Republicans irritate me greatly. Like most reasonable people, I fall in that middle bracket. I'm probably a fiscal conservative and social liberal. However, I have a major problem with fiscal conservatives who want to eliminate saftey nets for the most vulnerable. And thats where this Ryan guy loses me. Scrap medicare AND social security? Seriously?? Shall we also shuffle our elderly into the ocean? There has to be a minimum net for some people. Anyway, now I know how to vote.


Waiting lists? I've never waited and I use the system regularly as I have a health condition. Totally free, no charge. The seniors in my region hook their 40 foot 5th wheels to their Cummins duallys and winter in Phoenix. America is a poorly educated 3rd world country that breeds spree killers.


Yes- I've heard about those long waiting lines for a specialist in Canada. So has Premier of New Foundland Danny Williams. I'm guessing Danny didn't want to deal with the French over in Montreal? Bottom line- What an embarrassment for him on a PR level when he came to the USA for Heart surgery back in 2010.. To compare the USA to Canada in any form is ridiculous even though the out of touch Canadians like to do so. 80% of Canadians live in urban areas so it's more convent to get to a specialist.


@Ken1 No, instead you have long waiting lines for surgeries and your taxes are probably out of this world...oh, and did I mention that you probably get treatments denied after a certain age. Tell me...did your Canadian Prime Minister take $716 Billion out of the Canadian senior citizen's retirement benefit to fund your socialized medicine? Ours did and won't admit that he's the real bad guy to our seniors! Sure you're not an American lib-turd toadie in disguise?? @zero...Wake up! You've had the screwin' of your life for the past almost 4 yrs. with The Anointed One! What are you talkin' about???? You liberals are sooooo very must all be into 'pain'!


great another bush to screw everyone again *sigh* will noone ever learn, christ every republican in office has screwed us every time, and don't give me no reagan crap, his fault were having an iranian problem, in the 80's he fed iran weapons
