JOSH BARRO, writer for National Review and former Romney intern, has the same concerns about this Republican team that many Democrats and Independents have:

"What worries me most about Ryan is that he is a true believer in immediate fiscal and monetary austerity.

In the House, Ryan has been a leading advocate of near-term spending cuts to shrink the deficit. Ryan responded to the second round of quantitative easing by accusing the Federal Reserve of “debasing the currency” and raising fears about inflation.
I can imagine Ryan being a good partner for Romney on long-term fiscal policy.

But on short-term policy -- probably the more important issue -- any advice he is likely to give Romney is bad."
