VP Watch: Paul Ryan submitted Paperwork to Romney Campaign

Or at least that's what the National Review is reporting today:
Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Budget Committee chairman, has submitted paperwork to the Romney campaign. Sources confirm that he is being vetted for the vice-presidential nomination.
Earlier this month, Ryan's top poliucy aide, Jonathan Burks left his post to become deputy policy director for the Romney campaign, according to Burks and Republican aides.

If the report is true, maybe Rubio has some competition? Or is this just a courtesy move by the Romney campaign because of all the campaigning Ryan is doing for Romney?

Ryan would be a better choice than Rubio, Portman, or Pawlenty.

I'd much prefer Ryan over Pawlenty or Portman. The chemistry between Romney and Ryan is good. The dems would hound the 'Ryan plan,'even more, but they'll attack anyone/thing that Romney's eventual VP brings to the table. Romney has supported the Ryan plan thus far, so wouldn't have to change positions- in comparison to Rubio's immigration plan, which if Romney backs 100%, may go against his positions in the primaries.

Ryan is a clever guy, but needs to work a bit on tranlsating technical issues into ways that the average voter could understand.

Don't think that it will be Ryan chosen, but I wouldn't complain if he is.

There's chemistry between Romney and Ryan. It may be based on trust and or mutual respect, who knows. But I do know that when two people have chemistry it's more exciting to watch. This could create momentum, and they would probably find it easy to work together in a Romney administration.

I think it should be Ryan for VP.

I like Ryan a lot!!! He and Romney work well together, and Ryan could step up as POTUS if needed. I still like Chris Christie<3

I really like Ryan as well and by picking Ryan,he would send a strong message that his administration is truly concerned about the economy and budgets. since the number one issue on American's minds is the economy,this could work.

I still like Rubio...but I like Ryan as well. I could see Rubio being a VP choice in 8 years and I could also see Rubio in the Senate working with the Romney team on revised Legal immigration law while securing borders. I do not see the Hispanic community as a monolithic outing block like the black community,but if the Dems encourage low skilled workers to flood the borders for all of the US freebies then the GOPs ship is sunk.

I like Ryan a lot, too. But I like him where he is, for he is much needed there. Jindal, Rubio, Ryan, Pawlenty, are all great choices. I'll be happy with any of them (or some other choice).
