Don't you think Romney and Ryan deserve the same courtesy in revealing the details that Obama and Pelosi got when crafting Obamacare?

It's kinda funny to me that Democrats are so realistic. They are called liars and every other name in the book when it's really the only party that can admit the truth.
Remember Sarah Palin? The majority of Republicans thought she won the debate. I had to question whether they saw the same debate as me. To this day, they won't admit that she lost that one - and by a mile.
She kicked butt...so much so it was hard to remember who she was debating LOL.

When you wrote this "FISCAL responsibility with priorities!
A change that is much needed!"

And followed it by this: "ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!!"

You do realize that Paul Ryan voted for & supported spending that doubled the debt, passed countless unfunded spending bills, took us off the path of balanced budgets.

It would be like saying you like Jewish people & supporting Adolf Hitler.

I saw a UFO flying over my house this morning. At first I wasn't sure why it was hovering around, until it dropped a bunch of leaflets all over the place. It said Mars will be attacking soon so stock up on Moonpies and Twinkies, cause this is the big one dude.
Well, needless to say I rushed out to Wegman's and bought out their entire supply. I'm thinking of hoarding Rootbeer and Sprite too, but I'm still on the fence about that.

If it turns into a Fox News matchup like the last debate, Joe can shout it out with the best of em, he won't follow the rules of the debate and bite his tongue like the president did.
No lies, Homer. Misjudging a few numbers doesn't change the facts behind those numbers.

Which is different from willfully deceiving the American people and intentionally lying (Obama) in order to fool the easily fooled (you, for example).

EIGHTY YEARS? Didn't realize Clinton was SO old!!! Headline: President Clinton Submits First Balanced Budget in 30 Years.

How much has Obama borrowed? How much did he waste? Bet YOU are pissed.

Obama's a genius? Yeah, he convinced us of that during the debate and with his fixation on Big Bird now. Only a genius would talk about that when the main issues go unspoken and undefined.

Positive job growth? Fewer people working NOW than when he took office. And unemployment stats are skewed because of people taking part-time and leaving unemployment rolls while still needing full-time work.

Every DIME into recovery? Like wasting said dime (Millions) on Solyndra, Fisker, other green energy boondoggles. If EVERY dime went...then how have we been supporting useless PBS up thru the past 4 years?

Bin Ladin gone...AlQuaida alive and VERY well and ambassador and 4 others DEAD and our embassies smoldering ruins.

Don't bring a pinfeather to a gunfight and don't think calling names resembles in ANY way refuting an argument with actual facts.

1) Obama did sign the order to close Gitmo, Congress blocked it. If you weren't such a f*cking dick, you would know presidential promises depend on Congress going along with it.

2) Obama still believes that. He thought that civil unions would satisfy the needs of the same sex couples. He later learned it did not.

3) During the campaign, no one knew that such a severe recession was coming. If you promise your life partner that you will mow the lawn tomorrow & then drop over with a heart attack, I guess you would be a liar.

Paul Ryan outright lied. He thought you were so stupid that you would like that. He was right.

Ryan was first elected to the House in 1998.
Joe Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972.

So much for your "career politician" argument...

Anyway...all Ryan has to do is come across like the star quarterback. Biden will eventually look like the waterboy - as lovable but as misguided as Joe is.

MITT ROMNEY SERIAL LIAR

here is a taste:

Broadcast to a Sunday morning audience on NBC’s Meet the Press, Mitt Romney looked straight into the living rooms of America and told a lie. It wasn’t a major lie, perhaps more like a fib. But when Newt Gingrich challenged him about the ads that the super PAC affiliated with Romney had been running, the former governor pleaded ignorance.“I haven’t seen them,” he said indignantly. Then, barely 15 seconds later, perhaps forgetting he had just claimed never to have seen one of the ads, he offered a detailed description of “the ad I saw.” Whether Romney never saw an ad or not is not the issue. What matters is that Mitt Romney seems to have no problem staring the American people in the face and flat out lying to us.

Is Mitt Romney is a serial liar?
Throughout this nascent campaign year much has been made of Romney’s various gaffes that reveal him to be not one of us but rather a well-heeled man of privilege, shockingly unfamiliar with the lives of ordinary Americans. Recall his $10,000 bet offer, his disingenuous “pink slip” worries, his statement about earning “not very much” from giving speeches even though he raked in $374,000 from speechmaking in 2010, or his claim that we shouldn’t worry about the very poor because they have a safety net to catch them –yes, a safety net that provides families of four barely $20 per day for all their meals.

But we know that Romney is rich, privileged, and fairly isolated in his wealth. That’s become a meme in this campaign. We also know he changes positions to fit his political needs –perhaps more so than other politicians and thus his flip-flopping has become another Romney meme for 2012.

What we don’t yet want to admit is a more discomfiting idea: that the man our country may elect as President seems to have no problem lying to us, that he is accumulating a record of lies and misrepresentations on the campaign trail that goes far beyond the exaggerated rhetoric characteristic of most candidates. Yes, politicians might fudge a statistic, mitigate a failure, embellish a story, or take a little extra credit for success, and because of that most pundits and journalists have folded Romney’s lies and misrepresentations into the big tent of exaggerated political rhetoric that reporters now take for granted even if they roll their eyes when hearing it. No big deal, we’re led to believe.

But Romney is different from the others. He seems to make claims that he knows are not true..........blab blab blah

President Obama knew he would lie his azzzzzz off.
Caught on tape!
Great month ahead!
MITT ROMNEY IS TOAST.
