The melodramatic account of the secret steps taken by Ryan and the other guy to keep the American people in the dark over the selection of a game-playing VP choice a secret reminds me of hide and seek played by children. "Stealth surrounded R&R," screamed the Journal Sentinel. Ryan was told to go to O'Hare wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses (you can't make this stuff up!) to be picked up in Boston by Romney's oldest non-military son, appropriately named "Tag." But even before all that silliness Romney cut through some woods behind his house. The reporter made it seem like this took courage. Who knows when one might stumble over a raccoon? He risked life and limb to evade a reporter. Brave heart that Ryan. Romney has a super safe secure room in his Boston headquarters. One can only imagine what games are played in the safe room: "Hide the tax returns" or Monopoly? Or, "How much did I pay in taxes?" Perhaps a new Bain game of "drove you out, didn't we?"
Here comes more courage by Reince Priebus. Romney went for the brass ring, the hail Mary pass, the game changer. He passed up some real lulus. Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell and what's-his-name from Minnesota. Brave Romney. Good Romney passed up a guy from Ohio. Who? Oh never mind.
Ryan had been vetted! Was it like hazing at FSU? Or a bunch of softball questions?
We don't know much, but Mr. Credibility Ryan lost his credibility immediately. He will only share two years of tax returns--just like Uncle Mitt! But he allowed uncle Mitt to see his returns. So let's trust Mitt that there is nothing to hide. Whoa Nelly. Back to the woods!

Perhaps he showed his tax returns to Mitt just to prove he's one of them, an unpatriotic millionaire who refuses his duty to country.
