(whispering). . .OK. . .I've broken out of the Squirrel Retreat House to answer a political question.
Several HancAquam readers have written to ask what I think about Romney's choice of Paul Ryan as his V.P. running mate. . .
Honestly, I don't know much about Ryan. He's Catholic. He really riled up some LCWR-type sisters with his budget proposal in the House (cf. Nuns on a Bus). He's pretty smart in that policy-wonkish sort of way. He seems inoffensive at first glance.
Regular HA readers know well my thoughts on and feelings about B.O. and his crusade to transform the free citizens of America into wholly-owned wards of a leftist secular federal gov't, using the European Union as his model. So, at this point, I'm almost one of those Anybody But Obama voters.
This doesn't mean I will support the GOP ticket. The Republicans have their own problems when it comes to the National Security Nanny State and its endorsement of torture, imperialistic adventurism, and soft-peddling on the murder of 1.7 million American children annually.
And, yes, I've heard all the arguments about a vote for a third party candidate is a vote for Obama. Nobody ever said being an American citizen and a Roman Catholic would be easy.
