Why CNN is a Failure

CNN New episode today on VP choice of Ryan, Candy Crowley: "...that this might be, looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish. That, oh, my gosh, do we really want to talk about these thing? Is this where we want to go when the economy is so bad? We could have stayed on that."

Ticket death wish?  

Respectable analysis?  

A news episode or some unpaid political commercial? 

 At the end of the day, the CNN leadership is standing there and wondering why no one wants to watch their coverage.  They wonder why they can't make any profits.  They wonder why people just won't give them any credit.  And all they simply need to do is view their show for twenty minutes, and it'd give them all the answers.  

The PIck of Ryan as VP?

Based on commentary here tonight.....Romney will make his VP pick around 9AM tomorrow (Saturday), and Paul Ryan will be the pick.

My observations?  The entire election is now cast over the economy and government spending, period....end of story.  If I were the President, I'd shift my campaign over and try to find the economic formula for fixing things over the next four years.  Spending bucks on a failed Bush economy policy campaign....just won't be a smart idea.

As for finding some terrible thing about Paul Ryan?  Well....he might like his cinnamon sticks buttered, drive a pick-up, and use Old Spice for a cologne.  He might talk up the Green Bay Packers too much, mention Vince Lombardi in a campaign speech, and be a terrible dancer.   He will admit in public that he had to work in college, and his job was for Oscar Myer.....yeah, he was the driver for the weiner-mobile.  I'm guessing that the Obama team is sitting there in a fit of rage....because he just doesn't fit the Palin-model they had to mess with four years ago.

Finally, I'm guessing that VP Joe is sitting there and thinking about the one and only debate that he has to do with Paul Ryan.  VP Joe, in his peak years of the 1980s....was a pretty good debate enthusiast.  Can he compete against the young punk of Paul Ryan?  Maybe, all it takes is one slip, and the punk scores.  Two slips?  The debate is mostly over.

I'm guessing both Romney and Ryan will produce their medical records for public viewing in the next ten days.....which will put the media in a tight spot.  No, there's not going to be a public viewing of President Obama's medical records, if you were curious.

Overall, it's not a bad pick, and it's going to make an interesting election.
