“Completely underserved reputation in the media as a bluff, honest guy”=Paul Ryan. Paul Krugman could not describe this conservative flavor of the month any better.

Shitt Romney, with Ryan as his choice for VP, has drawn a line in the sand that he will still be standing behind after this November.
