  • Reading – It's Jon Huntsman Sr, right Harry? (Kos) http://t.co/v0gJ2F0E #
  • RT @BreakingNews: Mitt Romney to name vice presidential running mate on Saturday in Norfolk, VA – @AP, @Reuters, @FoxNews #
  • RT @BreakingNews: RT @NBCNews: NBC News: 3 Sources indicate Rep Paul Ryan is Romney's Vice Presidential pick. #
  • RT @ObsoleteDogma: Is there any doubt Paul Ryan would be the worst choice for Romney? Makes it impossible to Etch-a-Sketch the Ryan Plan. #
  • RT @owillis: "bobby jindal/paul ryan will save us" — things conservatives are actually thinking today, bless their hearts. #
  • RT @markos: Romney camp pretends they have NO IDEA why their candidate is swooning, http://t.co/Ou4Lbo9M. Oh, and Rasmussen! #
  • RT @LarrySabato: On VP, it is what it is, it happens when it happens, everyone take a prozac. #
  • RT @BreakingNews: RT @breakingpol: Republican official confirms to @AP: Romney will choose Paul Ryan for running mate http://t.co/W2oP2Vpl #
  • RT @chasemberger: @LarrySabato I keep repeating; If Romney has to rely on the VP choice to win, he has already lost. #
  • MT @jesseltaylor: Mitt Romney: "Please take all discussion of everything I've done in my life off the table, Mr. Obama" http://t.co/2vEHziMD #
  • RT @drgrist: Romney to media: please confine yourself to transcribing my campaign talking points. Tx. #
  • RT @fivethirtyeight: Paul Ryan would be good for web traffic and cable news ratings. #
  • RT @markos: How could this awesome week end any better? With Mitt Romney crying "Uncle!" #
  • RT @dandrezner: RT @Zathras3: This is a real shame, because FZ's talk show is better than others in US by an order of magnitude. #
  • RT @brendanloy: I think picking Ryan would be a political mistake for Romney. But it would certainly make this election more interesting. #
  • MT @EWErickson: Several ppl tell me Van Sustren posted that the Secret Service showed up at Paul Ryan's home. Looks like the post is gone. #
  • RT @brendanloy: Announcing the veep on a sleepy Saturday morning in August, the penultimate day of the Olympics, is weird. #
  • RT @BuzzFeedBen: Choosing Ryan would = abandoning the idea that Romney can win a referendum on Obama, and running on a clear alternative. #
  • RT @daveweigel: Everybody chill out and wait for the Romney app. Be polite. #
  • RT @HuntsmanLiddy: Who's up on a Saturday at 9am? Not me. #RomneyVP #
  • RT @smotus: Romney's VP pick will be a game-changer. By "game-changer," I mean carbon-based life form. #
  • RT @smotus: Sounds like we can expect Romney to lose Wisconsin by 2 points less than he otherwise would have. #
  • RT @delrayser: Seriously, how is this not the worst day/time/place you could pick for this announcement? #
  • RT @Richard_Florida: Just checked Intrade: Romney VP pick – Ryan 30%, Portman 25.7%, Pawlenty 15%, Obama reelection – 60.3% … #
  • RT @davidfrum: Ryan = we stop talking about Romney's taxes, talk non-stop about the No. 2 man's ideas. #
  • RT @davidfrum: If Ryan is the running mate, GOP had better hope for very, very, very low turnout among under-55s. #
  • RT @daveweigel: If it's Ryan it'll be the 2nd consecutive veep pick lobbied for, successfully, by Bill Kristol. #
  • RT @davidfrum: On the bright side, Ryan would be a much better choice than Sarah Palin! #
  • RT @daveweigel: Are we still doing that thing where people underrate Paul Ryan's political skills? #
  • RT @fivethirtyeight: I'm inherently skeptical about VP rumors. But Ryan is not the guy you'd use as a decoy. #
  • RT @markos: It's really a bold move by the Romney campaign to put the senior vote up for grabs! #
  • RT @RichardA: According to everyone on Twitter, Paul Ryan will be Romney's VP pick. So that's got to be right. #
  • RT @markos: Dear Romney campaign, Fridays are when you announce BAD news. Oh wait… #
  • RT @BuzzFeedAndrew: So now sources have indicated to NBC News, Weekly Standard, and Huffington Post it is Paul Ryan. #
  • RT @BuzzFeedBen: Ryan would be the first real surprise move in Romney's political career, at least as long as I've paid attention. #
  • RT @marcambinder: NBC NEws reports that Tagg Romney told Pawlenty and Portman that they weren't the pick. Romney delegated the calls! #
  • RT @LarrySabato: Whether you love or hate Ryan's ideas, at least maybe we'll have a debate about more than gaffes & negative ads. #
  • RT @gruber: My money is on Dan Quayle. #
  • RT @frankstrategies: ! MT @mboyle1: A law enforcement source of mine says Secret Service at Paul Ryan's house. #
  • RT @markos: Everyone is fired up tonight! Conservatives because they showed Romney who was boss. Liberals because we're going to win! #
  • MT @fivethirtyeight: I think Ryan pick (if rumors true) indicates bearish view from Romney. Not a pick you make if you think you're ahead. #
  • RT @LarrySabato: Romney selection of Ryan (16 days before convo) earliest in modern times–except Kerry pick of Edwards in '04 (20 days). #
  • MT @kesgardner: Romney VP App seems to be last to know that it's Paul Ryan. Expect old media to home in on this fail like a laser. #
  • RT @daveweigel: Dems deriding Romney's Ryan choice are accidentally arguing that Romney has done something… bold and not poll-tested. #
  • RT @RBReich: I've debated Paul Ryan. He won't help Romney. #
  • RT @mattyglesias: Was smart to leak this news at a time on day when non-Mormons are typically drunk. #
  • Woke up early to watch the Ryan thing. Yawn! #

  • MT @chrislhayes: Ryan said USA is only place founded on an idea, but I don't think that's true. Israel & Liberia seem to qualify. Others? #

  • RT @nycsouthpaw: Still dazzled by the genius of picking Paul Ryan as your VP and then disavowing his budget the same morning. #
  • RT @fivethirtyeight: If Obama wins, most likely 2016 match-up is: Paul Ryan vs. Hillary Clinton. That would be pretty epic. #
  • MT @owillis: now sure, this pick isn't as funny as sarah palin – but that was the perfect storm. we shall not see it again in our lifetimes. #
  • RT @NickKristof: On Intrade, Mitt Romney's chance of election has fallen today since selecting Ryan for VP slot. Seems right to me. #
