The man who selected himself to be former President George W. Bush’s running mate says that he “can’t think of a better choice” than Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to share the Republican ticket with Mitt Romney.

“I’m a big fan of Paul’s,” former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Saturday. “I can’t think of a better choice. I really just think that it is a vital one and I want to give Gov. Romney very high marks for making it.”

“I think that what he has done here is take, and put front and center in his campaign, somebody who has been spending time and energy addressing the most serious problem we face as a nation.”

The former vice president added: “I’m delighted with the Paul Ryan choice. I think he’d make a great vice president.”
