when asked which he feared more?? a nuclear armed iran, or another war?..... ryan chose another war???
whoa!! that will go over well!(not)
he also told the country that he and romney will fight to make abortion illegal.......
a real turn off if you ask me!!
I can see that gay twirl and Obamanation have the blind leading the blind.

Biden "spent his whole life working for the middle class."

After over 36 years in Washington, the middle class is living the results of his 'work'.

And he's bragging???

The facade of normalcy that prevented proper protection for the embassy in Libya resulted in the careless and needless deaths of four Americans.

That distortion and facade of normalcy permeates every aspect of this Administration. The disrespect and smirk of Biden only exposed the consistent lack of character.

<quoted text>Biden was just plain disrespectful...He thought he can come out and be aggressive but it backfired...He ended up looking stupid. Biden's rude behavior was a bit baffling and un-presidential. I did not agree with everything he said, but if he wipe the facial expressions off his face he would have been better off. I thought Ryan was much stronger than I anticipated. Behaving in a courteous manner served him well. Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the administration wasn't aware of requests for more security in Libya before the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi during Thursday night's debate, contradicting two State Department officials and the former head of diplomatic security in Libya.
"We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there," Biden said.
In fact, two security officials who worked for the State Department in Libya at the time testified Thursday that they repeatedly requested more security and two State Department officials admitted they had denied those requests.
Joe lied. It should not be surprising that Biden flat out lied about the requests for more security in Benghazi. It just proves that we need to get Obama and Biden out of office as soon as possible. They either are too incompetent to know what is going on in their intelligence and state departments, or they lie to cover up their inadequacies. Either one is a reason to vote them out.
Interesting how you get 'judged' for simply stating obvious facts.

Don't they understand how it exposes their denial and blatant stupidity?

Amazing!

No, he said that it wasn't a decision to be left to 9 unelected officials.
He is correct, based on the Constitution. But then again, you don't understand the Constitution.
Isn't that what the courts are supposed to do? What they were created to do? And of course they are un-elected - they are supposed to be above petty politics, in the ideal.

If laws are passed to take away basic human and civil rights from any group of Americans, shouldn't they have the ability to address this with the Court? Isn't out Government designed to protect ALL of our rights?

If that is not the purpose of the SC, why were three branches of government created in the first place?

Is your argument about the judge's decision is that you think I spell my name wrong? Priceless.

Even the people cannot vote into law something which is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court is there to prevent such a thing from happening.

I wish there were more of them, like in the primaries.

then we could really air out the laundry....

like that there have been well over 1000 bills introduced at the state level by the teapublican party to restrict womens health care.

across the board@!!

we found out that they actually REALLY DONT like birth control...

and they are still trying to push personhood amendments(for fetus's), even though one lost in misssisippi by 19 points and in colorado by 38 points.

vaginal probes????

need I say more?? OK.

from analyzing this political strategy, I can only guess that the reep-publican are running out of dupable constituents....
so they NEED to support policies that produce inbred children, like NO CONDOMS and NO abortion in any cases, including being raped by your dad or brother.

chris wallace??

ryan needs to get back to him on some details about their tax plan...

I seem to remember chris grilling him pretty well last week.
for just that moment, faux news became fox news again!

as for your responses??

you havnt left one single post that doesnt mention bengazi somehow.

let the record show, that the congressman from wisconsin voted AGAINST 300 million in additional security at our embassies.

there are more issues than that, and that is why im cleaning the floor with YOU this AM.

tell me how romney will differ from the president on the war in afghanistan? or sanction on Iran?? or the civil war in syria.??

ryan offered nothing new last night....

that is most likely the reason you are moot on those other, more important subjects of middle east foriegn policy.

what would romney do in addition to the sanctions??

what TOUGHER stance can he offer??

ryan answered for him.....

romney/rand would prefer another war to Iran having a nuke.

BIDEN, when asked who would pay more taxes in Obama's second term: "People making a million dollars or more."

THE FACTS: Obama's proposed tax increase reaches farther down the income ladder than millionaires. He wants to roll back Bush-era tax cuts for individuals making more than $200,000 and couples making more than $250,000.

ďBiden needs to laugh a little less through the Libya, Middle East, nuclear Iran segment.

If laughing and yelling and interrupting your opponent 82 times makes you a winner, then yes he won. But I just saw an old draft dodger acting like the joker laughing and showing no respect for Mr Ryan and the people that wanted to watch a debate. You do know Obama attended the wedding of the fair and balanced moderator didn't you? She should have been arrested.

A bit obsessed, are we?
But, no, people don't "convert" to gay after being married and having kids.
Some gay people feel so pressured by family and society, that they marry straight spouses. Some as a cover. Some to try to pretend themselves into being straight.
It doesn't work, of course, and some of them fail so miserably at the living the lie that they tear their families apart.
Just another reason for supporting same sex marriage - it eliminates that sort of collateral damage.

White House records reveal that the moderator of last night's vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News. On at least one other occasion, Raddatz visited the White House. According to records, that visit was on December 18, 2009. The reason for that visit is not known, though her meeting appears to have taken place in the Old Executive Office Building, and not the West Wing.

Before last night's debate, Raddatz came under scrutiny after the Daily Caller revealed she had attended President Barack Obama's wedding in 1991 with her now ex-husband, Obama administration official Julius Genachowski.

The whole debate was a set up. Biden seemed to know the questions and knew he was allowed to interrupt and talk over Ryan, and Raddatz changed the topic or didn't press Biden on issues like the cover up in Libya.
