Someone's excited!

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch weighed in on Mitt Romney's running mate pick Saturday morning, tweeting an enthusiastic endorsement of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

The tweet:


Rupert Murdoch
Thank God! Now we might have a real election on the great issues of the day. Paul Ryan almost perfect choice.

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.
