I laughed when watching the liberal idiots on MSNBC trying in vain to twist and warp what Ryan said so they could level a charge of lying.

Anyone who actually listened to Ryan's speech knows better.

It's a fact that Obama visited the GM plant in Ryan's hometown and promised that it would be open for 100 years if he was elected President. And it's a fact that the plant was closed and never reopened.

Ryan pointed out those facts as one of several examples he gave of Obama's broken campaign promises. Nothing more, nothing less.

The other alleged lie was regarding the debt commission Obama instituted. It's a fact that the commission gave Obama recommendations to take serious steps regarding the coming economic disaster due to runawaway government spending. It's also a fact that Obama did nothing other than throw the report in the trash and ignore it.

Again, just another example of Ryan pointing out the facts.

Liberals are all in a tizzy because they just can't stand the facts, and they know Obama is slipping fast and doesn't stand a chance at re-election.

How can Romney think to win when he doesn't support pro choice agenda? Wants to get rid of planned parent hood, do away with other services that make people be able to live, etc?

Those damned conservatives expect everyone to be responsible, work hard and take care of themselves. What an ignorant concept that is. It will never work because everyone knows the govt. Is supposed to support everyone. Pay all our bills and take care of all our needs and wants. They will never win with such outdated notions and ideas.

Conservative pro-life candidates won a sweeping victory in 2010. You act like no one supports the most basic of all human rights, the right to life.

Your other claims are nothing but lies. Romney has never stated that he wanted to do away with Planned Parenthood or "other services that make people be able to live" - whatever the hell that means.

Not using taxpayer money to pay for abortions and contraceptives is what the majority of people want. We know we can't continue to steal money from our children and grandchildren and expect our economy to do anything but collapse. It's only you retarded liberal idiots that think otherwise.

Romney will kick Obama's ass because Obama and the Democrats have proven themselves incapable of fixing the economy. It's really as simple as that.

I did not know until 2 weeks ago that there is a difference in Pro-Lifers,the ones who make no exeptions for incest ,rape and the life of the mother,and those who do. Paul Ryan,Todd Akin and Missouri Right to Life belong to the first group.

Wow. I didn't realize that people could be so ill-informed.

Some people believe murder is wrong in all circumstances. It does beg the question: What did the baby do to deserve being put to death?

Care to answer?

Because until it can get a social security number it's not a baby yet.It's a fertilized egg.Why does the mother deserve to be put to death when her life is at stake?Learn some respect for women before you get to blabbing about whose life is the priority.If men could get pregnant abortions would be available at any convenience store.

ROFLMAO!!! Are you serious??? That has got to be the most boneheaded statement I've ever heard!

I guess that before the SSA was created in 1935 babies had never existed on the planet. What an idiot!
Why does the mother deserve to be put to death when her life is at stake?
Mother is not being put to death. Abortion is the intentional killing of innocent human life, the very definition of murder.

Sure pregnancy has its risks, but a woman assumes that risk when she willingly engages in sexual activity. Besides, how many women per year die from pregnancy? It's infinitesimal when compared to the 1.5 million babies that get slaughtered every single year in this country.

Do you realize that in America since Roe v Wade that 50 million human beings have been slaughtered? 50 million!!!
Learn some respect for women before you get to blabbing about whose life is the priority.
Learn some respect for the dignity of human life before you advocate slaughtering millions in the most gruesome and barbaric manner imaginable.

And while you're at it, learn some very basic biology so you'll stop making such ridiculous statements out of utter stupidity.

What planet do you come from?
Next you're going say it's not a baby until it can contribute to society. In which case where does that put children born with disabilities? Then let's carry it a bit further, once we get old to work are you going to reason that we should be put out of your misery because we're an inconvenience to you?
Read psalm 139! God knew us before time and God created us and when our time comes to go home, is not determined by the created but by the Creator.
Yes! God loves all of us, even when we don't use our comon sense and intelligence to it's full capacity.

Your basing your beliefs on a book that not everyone follows, and therefore your argument may be rendered invalid.

It is really funny how many times people try to mix their personal religious beliefs with politics, especially living in the usa, where that kinda thing, really just doesn't happen.

That makes about as much sense as most of the childlike gibberish you post. None at all.
