Paul Ryan’s Liberal Fan Club

There is one point on which Democratic strategists and the hard right are united: they fervidly support Mitt Romney’s decision to choose Paul Ryan, Republican of Wisconsin, as his vice-presidential running mate.

Geoff Garin, a Democratic pollster who works for the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action, declared in an interview with the Times just before Romney’s running mate was unveiled that picking Ryan “would legitimately make the Ryan budget the centerpiece of the Republican platform and Romney would own it from soup to nuts.” [cont.]
