Think Out Loud

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan

Pete Springer/OPB

Presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney shook up the race this weekend with his pick of solidly conservative Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). Ryan is one of the better known Republican national figures, due at least in part to his conservative budget proposal, which President Obama ripped into recently. 

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden has found himself in the spotlight because of a well-publicized Medicare overhaul proposal he released with Ryan. (We spoke with Wyden about the Medicare proposal when it came out last year.)

How does Paul Ryan resonate with you as Mitt Romney’s VP pick? Does it make you more or less likely to cast your vote with the GOP come November?
