Rupert Murdoch: Paul Ryan An 'Almost Perfect' Choice For VP

Someone's excited!

The tweet:

Murdoch has repeatedly voiced his disappointment with Romney's campaign over the past few months, openly worrying that the former governor of Massachusetts plays it too safe.

Picking Ryan -- a leading Republican policymaker who championed a severe and controversial GOP budget plan -- seems to have settled that fear for now.
