The presidential election has become a heated contest even prior to confirmation of the Republican Party candidate, although it appears Mitt Romney just about has the nomination wrapped up. In an atmosphere of continuing high unemployment rates and rising prices of gasoline many voters in Syracuse have expressed a desire for a change in the White House. The recent endorsement of Mitt Romney for president by Representative Paul Ryan has helped to set in motion more momentum for greater support for Romney.
The New York Post has reported “Rep. Paul Ryan endorses Mitt Romney.” On Friday morning Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) announced that he was endorsing Republican front-runner Mitt Romney for President of the United States. The chairman of the House Budget Committee, while appearing on “FOX & Friends” ahead of Wisconsin’s Republican primary on Tuesday, has said he believed Romney was the “right person for the job.” Ryan has commented “I have two criteria I’m using to make my decision on Tuesday: Who will make best President, and who has best chance of beating Barack Obama? And in my opinion, Mitt Romney is clearly that person.”
Ryan has gone on to speak of how he feels Romney is the right man of the job of president. He has said “I’ve spent some time with Mitt Romney and his staff recently, going through our country’s fiscal situation … and I am convinced that Mitt Romney has the skills, the tenacity, the principles, the courage and the integrity to do what it takes to get America back on track.”
Ryan has also discussed how he feels that the primary could become “counterproductive” if it drags on much longer and he has urged Republicans to “coalesce as conservatives around Mitt Romney and focus on the big task at hand, which is defeating Barack Obama in the fall.”
Former President George H.W. Bush and his son, former Florida governor Jeb Bush also recently announced they are backing Romney “enthusiastically” and so it appears the momentum is on Romney’s side now. Romney may just prove to be the one Republican candidate who can beat Obama in November and offer Americans who want another new beginning a chance to envision that dream.
