Then because of the dire straights to which you will be reduced when your enemy besieges you, you will eat your own children, the flesh of your sons and daughters whom the Lord has given you.

In a much replayed moment from Thursday night's debate, Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan tussled over whether it was mathematically possible for Mitt Romney to cut tax rates by 20 percent and not add to the deficit. Ryan claimed that it could be done by eliminating unspecified loopholes and deductions, and said that history had demonstrated that such a plan was workable, citing President John Kennedy.

Biden challenged him, arguing that no such thing had ever happened.

In a rare moment of bipartisan accord, Romney himself agrees with Biden's assertion.

"Let's look at history. My plan is not like anything that's been tried before," Romney said at last week's presidential debate.

Ryan argued Thursday that their tax plan is workable. "You can cut tax rates by 20 percent and still preserve important preferences for middle-income taxpayers," he said.

"Not mathematically possible," Biden responded.

"It is mathematically possible," Ryan said. "It's been done before. It's precisely what Republicans are saying ..."

"It has never been done before," Biden interjected.

"It's been done a couple of times," said Ryan.

"It has never been done before," said Biden.

"Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates and increased growth. Ronald Reagan ...," Ryan offered, before Biden cut him off to say, "Oh, now you're Jack Kennedy."

"This is amazing," Biden said.

....Putin doesn’t actually want a “hard-line conservative in the White House.” Putin distrusts the U.S. because he believes that the Bush administration behaved in an ungrateful and untrustworthy fashion in the previous decade, and U.S.-Russian relations improved as much as they did because the current administration seemed to be more reliable. U.S.-Russian relations reached their lowest point in the last twenty years in no small part because of a “more active U.S. policy” toward the Middle East, the South Caucasus, and central Europe. Putin might be willing to deal with a more hard-line American President, but only so long as it this translated into tangible gains for Russia. Provided that the hard-liner was willing to live up to his end of the bargain, there could be some room for agreement, but there isn’t any. Since Romney’s Russia policy is essentially to never make any deals with the current Russian government, Putin doesn’t have much of an incentive to cooperate. That will guarantee that U.S.-Russian relations will deteriorate much more than they have in the last year.
That's funny. President Bush and Putin had a good working relationship. He respected Bush as a worthy adversary. This crap you put up there is assinine. Putin thinks O'bama is a worm-an Amateur. He thinks even less of Hillary.

Actually comparing yourself to Nazi's??????????
Okay, I DO believe in supporting Israel, but even if you don't, you can't believe a nuclear exchange in that part of the world would not affect this country in a negative way. There's more involved here than Israel, but haters can't see beyond their hate. Tunnel vision on your part.
There will be no nuklear exchange between the two . Iranians aren't stupid ,they know Israel is cunning the world by having nukes themselves .

What's happening is israel doesn't want to lose it's supremacy in the region .

if Iran had a nuke the region would be much much stable .

Iran is backed by China Russia and North Korea . DO you want to go to war with those three over some crappy israel ??

Look what's happening in Syria . Only few days ago Syrians (Russians )shot down Turkish (American ) airplane . Russian marines are already station in tartus and won't let Assad fall .

Thank God we have a Barry for president because if Romney was in office we as a country , the whole world would cease to exist but this suits perfectly Romney . After all he's cult member whos followers in the end will commit suicide
