Republican political professionals have been publicly enthusiastic about the choice of Paul Ryan for Mitt Romney’s running mate, but privately they have serious reservations, as this post from Politico makes clear.
Paul Ryan’s our pick for VP?
What a mess this could turn out to be
Older voters will pan
Ryan’s Medicare plan
A disaster is what we foresee.
We’re trying to act really cheery
But on Ryan we’re just a bit leery
Without any doubt
He’s really far out
Election day could be dreary
Now Ryan’s a really smart guy
His ideas, though, many don’t buy
The voters he’ll scare
We don’t have a prayer
Mitt chose him but we wonder why.
