MOORESVILLE, N.C.—The full measure of Paul Ryan's political impact on the 2012 race is still yet to be determined, but Mitt Romney's new running mate is already helping the presumptive GOP nominee attract some of the biggest crowds of his campaign to date.

Several thousand people turned out to see the new GOP ticket at a NASCAR mechanics training facility here—including at least 3,000 people who crammed into an overflow outside the event. It was the second day in a row of record-breaking crowds for the Romney campaign, including more than 8,000 who attended a rally in Manassas, Va., on Saturday.

In Mooresville, Romney was presented with his own customized NASCAR by legendary stock car driver Darrell Waltrip, prompting an emotional reaction from the GOP presidential candidate who rarely strays from his usual stump speech.

"My dad made ramblers. I only dreamed of cars like that," Romney said, motioning to the red, white and blue stock car emblazoned with his campaign's logo. "To have my name on a car like that, it's just too much."

When the two men took the stage, the crowd went crazy—letting out ear-deafening whoops and screams, prompting Romney to giggle with delight. "I love you!" one woman screamed at Ryan. "I love you, too!" the Wisconsin congressman replied.

Ann Romney briefly joined the candidates on stage, in what was her first speaking appearance since her husband announced Ryan was his VP pick. She spoke about driving up to the event and seeing thousands of people lined up outside. "Do you see that?" Romney said she told Ryan.

She praised the crowd's energy, describing it as a "boost that gives us the determination to say we're not going to take it anymore. We're going to take the White House back."

Romeny and Ryan are two men with that I think will straighten things out. They are a force to be reckon with. Cant wait to see the debates.

I'll listen to both sides long enough to take down notes of their basic campaign pledges. Just remember.. actions speak louder than words! Campaign speeches are rife with rhetoric until it comes time to vote- after that, the president elect's true manner will begin to unfold- only then, good or bad, it's too late until the next cycle of campaign bullshit begins all over again!!

I swear, if those two get elected, you will see the worlds shortest civil war. No woman with a brain or gay person is going to stand for their bullshit.. and since we women hold the lady bits.. this war will be over mcFast.

Ryan is a great choice for the GOP ticket, but he remains a member of the sleeziest scum on the planet – the politicians. I would rather have a conversation with one decent prostitute than 100 members of congress. At least she would be honest about what she’s selling.


Ryan; 2005 in an address to The Atlas Society:

“I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff. We start with Atlas Shrugged…

But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism…

It’s so important that we go back to our roots to look at Ayn Rand’s vision, her writings, to see what our girding, under-grounding principles are. I always go back to, you know, Francisco d’Anconia’s speech on money when I think about monetary policy. And then I go to the 64-page John Galt speech, you know, on the radio at the end, and go back to a lot of other things that she did, to try and make sure that I can check my premises so that I know that what I’m believing and doing and advancing are square with the key principles of individualism…”

Ryan; April of this year in an interview with The National Review:

“I reject her philosophy. (Ayn Rand's) It’s an atheist philosophy. It reduces human interactions down to mere contracts and it is antithetical to my worldview. If somebody is going to try to paste a person’s view on epistemology to me, then give me Thomas Aquinas, who believed that man needs divine help in the pursuit of knowledge. Don’t give me Ayn Rand.”

This account of this asshole’s hypocrisy is trending #3 on Yahoo at this moment.

And let's keep in mind...In 2005 "Atlas Shrugged" read word-for-word exactly as it reads right now and Rand has been dead for 30-years.

What, professional instigators? I'm sure Romney/Ryan aren't too worried about those planted people that are used to causing and stirring shit.

People booing Romney in Ohio today
Just a handful of protestors that the unions bused in. No big surprise there since they're the arm of the dem party.

Something wrong with that picture??
Yeah, we don't get the full story from you that as usual. Totally one sided stories and comments, and nothing more!

Doc, I'm not going to pay much attention to a left wing rag that you provided.

Oh, I can handle facts and what goes on. However, when these protesters go to a campaign rally with intentions on showing their asses and to heckle people, karma can really get ya.

Yeah, freedom of speech is great and all, but then you have some people who uses bad judgement in antagonizing the other side. Case in point.... Seriously, they were there to disrupt the rally with their opposition. Negative actions usually end up with negative results...
