The announcement of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney is running mate sparking new appeal for the Republican campaign.
The 42 year old Ryan being touted as the key to bring in women.
And the youth vote take a look at these headlines -- this from Politico.
Forget the budget Paul Ryan is hot that's Politico.
USA today says Romney Ryan take it opens the GOP's ability younger voters but the latest LA times headline shows a generation gap when he comes to policy.
Seniors would pay the price of -- Republicans -- to -- -- Medicare.
Right joining me now is Kelly Jane Torrance she is with the weekly -- That -- put this in all the mood times would you say that Paul Ryan is halts and therefore want -- to attract women and young people.
Well there's no question he's a good looking guy you know even even his enemies have to.
Agree and on Twitter this week and everyone was talking about those dreamy eyes.
But look it's you know he's young he's handsome.
But he's also Smart and serious and likable.
It's it's really not so much as agent is looks at how we -- -- -- he hears someone who's not obsessed with politics like.
So many other politicians in Washington -- -- he works out every day he works out hard he listens to Rage Against The Machine and Led Zeppelin.
He's he's he's and he's a guy like like anybody out Larry.
Later the got my Ireland I agree with -- I think he's a very good looking -- you're right about the -- but at the same time I'm curious if those people are gonna go vote is you're really gonna get the twenty somethings out to vote because we know that it's mostly seniors that end up a -- of the day going to the polls mean is that enough.
It's interesting because when -- -- McCain really didn't have a chance at those younger voters and of course they went overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008.
But we'll starting last month that started to -- we started to -- headlines New York Times the economy is cutting into Obama's youth support.
There's a real opportunity here.
-- for Republicans to get voters that they're not used to getting and I think choosing someone like Paul Ryan is genius and not because he's young and attractive.
But because he understands better than anybody in Washington.
That -- out of control entitlement programs are going to -- to change because.
You can't expect young people to afford afford to pay for them.
Look in my look at the major jet my own opinion here which is I don't think young people -- -- out in anything like the numbers that they turn round out in 2008.
That was a very special election.
Young people of really motivated to get out back and vote big time.
Four years later.
A lot of those young votes is could only remember four years of of lack of prosperity no jobs and a slow growth economy.
I don't think they'll come out in the same numbers what -- side.
You're exactly right spots.
-- -- I think the Republicans have a chance to get some of those back on our side.
Hoping change -- we heard about a 2008 will right now.
We've -- keep young people graduating with no hope of a job waiting for the unemployment numbers to change now Obama 2008 he was a young guy with new ideas.
Who is the young guy with new ideas this time it's Paul Ryan now I don't think he's gonna have anything like -- sort of almost cult of personality that surrounded Obama -- young.
People in 2008 but I think there's a real opportunity here right your right -- that turn out is gonna be much lower but.
Those who do go actually I think they're open to new ideas.
Okay that's -- Rage Against The Machine I think.
They don't like capitalism and but anyway he likes Rage Against The Machine what's that -- that big song richest machine can reach only what is it.
