Here is what really happens now that Mitt Romney picks Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate: Romney gives the hardliners in his party, and especially its Obama-hating fringes, the candidate they really want.
The guy running for vice president becomes the guy the modern Republican Party wishes were running for President.
This is Ryan’s party, not Romney’s. The Republicans never wanted Romney, it’s why everybody except Dwight Eisenhower became a front-runner in the early innings of this campaign. No matter how Tea Party tough Romney tried to talk, they could never forget the moderate Romney was as governor of Massachusetts.
They wanted a zealot like Ryan. Now they’ve got one. Already you hear that Romney picks Ryan to be his game changer the way John McCain picked Sarah Palin. But there is a difference. Palin only played the part of an ideologue, like a part she was playing in the school play. Ryan, a child of privilege from Wisconsin no matter how much he tries to sound like some blue-collar kid, really is one.
