Karl Rove: Mitt Romney Chose "Bold" and "Governing"
Following Mitt Romney announcing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Karl Rove weighed in on the choice saying "vice presidential picks ofttimes say more about the presidential candidate than they do about the vice presidential candidate, and I think that's the case today."
Rove continued, "By his choice today, [Romney] signaled
that this [tax reform] is going to be the focus of his fall campaign, a reformed conservatism aimed at getting the country's fiscal house in order. Paul Ryan will be an excellent partner for Romney in this effort ... [Romney] chose bold and he chose governing, and I think that will serve him well in the remaining months of the campaign."
