Paul Ryan: I'm Totally Not Thinking About Being On This Ticket As VP. But, While We're On The Subject, Let Me Drop A Bunch Of Sweetly Crafted Sound-Bombs On Barack Obama's Petulance and Failures.

He said:

“You know, we’ve gotten kind of used to this sort of verbal tantrums from the president. To me it’s a little more petulance than presidential,” Ryan told NBC. “He’s trying to use this kind of rhetoric to distort away from his failed record.”

Hey, he can't help it if you're thinking about him as VP, right?

In related news, William Kristol's erection just hijacked a plane.

But most of the talk recently is about Rob Portman. Who, I have to admit, I don't know at all.

He served in Bush's cabinet, and as a Congressman and then Senator from swing-state Ohio.

And Romney apparently likes him.

Still, the rap on him is that he's not exciting or charismatic. Which Romney obviously needs, or at least strongly wants.

More: A Dozen Democrats Have Told Me They Support My Ryan/Wyden Compromise on Entitlements. More news from Paul Ryan, claiming bipartisan support, though now, with an election looming, it's kept secret from voters.

Which is, of course, the Democratic Way. Please deliver this information to Vladimir Putin.

“There are a number of Democrats but I don’t want to name their names, because I don’t want to get them in trouble,” he said. “I’ve had 12 come up to me and say, ‘I love what you’re doing with Ron [Wyden],’” he said. As for going public with their support, Ryan said the Democrats told him: “No way, I’ll get killed.”

“I’m not going to out Democrats who I believe are in office, who are favorably disposed to these ideas, for their own sake and for the sake fo getting this consensus realized,” Ryan said at the gathering hosted by Bloomberg View in Manhattan Tuesday morning…

“We hopefully will be in the position to realize this consensus, and include those Erskine Bowles, Ron Wyden, Alice Rivlin Democrats, and bring them into that coalition,” he said.
