The vice liar in chief is spending time with Eric. Two peas in a pod.

Sad that the GOP is so desperate, not only to have the likes of Romney and Ryan heading their ticket, but are such low-lifes that when their mouth opens, one can not trust what falls out to be the truth.

Romney, Ryan, Allen, Eric, Hurt, and Eastwood the pathetic ticket for 2012.

I don't think the RNC organizers would agree with you.
Those 12 minutes are the only thing anyone remembers about the convention.
He talked to a invisible president only Republicans can see; makes sense.
Eastwood blamed Afghanistan on Obama (not that republican who started the war), and didn't think it was a good idea for attorneys to be president (take that Harvard lawyer Romney).

Well, perhaps Honorable Mr Ryan isn't a liar - yet - but he is hiding secrets.

He should release the text of his worshipful testimonial to ANTI-CHRISTIAN Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand was not only aggressively ANTI-CHRISTIAN she had sexually sadistic tastes including affirmation of rape in her novels and writing with praise of a sexually sadistic murderer who dismembered the limbs of a 12 year old girl, carved out her guts, and sewed her eyes open to make her parents believe that she was alive.

Knowing this, Mr Ryan was invited to give a testimonial to Ayn Rand, and did so, in 2005, not when he was in college ( lots of college kids do stupid things and might be forgiven for that).

No, he gave a worshipful testimonial to the ANTI-CHRISTIAN/ANTI-CHRIST Ayn Rand AS A CONGRESSMAN!

This is what Mr Ryan does AS A CONGRESSMAN? And, all the past year, he lead the Congress that did nothing: didn't create jobs, didn't reduce debt, didn't draft an energy plan that is safe for the environment, didn't create jobs, didn't restore American education system to be the best in the world, didn't reduce costs of health care without reducing quality of care, didn't create jobs, didn't make Wall Street 'pay' any penalties for their theft from consumers while the executives continue with posh privileges, didn't create jobs, etc

Oh, we suppose Mr Ryan did DO SOME thing after all that gym time, with plenty of admiring closeted gay Republicans in Congress and their aides around. He seems to like a big talk and being admired.
OMG

I think people will remember a lot about the convention, but those 12 minutes were good! Notably the part about Obama not doing the job and we gotta let him go.
Too bad you missed the metaphor of the empty chair. Like we don't really have a President because he hasn't been doing the job. Guess you blocked that out. You must be in denial. Keep right on blocking it out until the adults come to town and start to fix the mess. Bye, bye Obama...

Ryan DID vote against the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission’s proposal to reduce the deficit.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/artic...
"As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan was on the bipartisan panel and was one of the seven members who voted against the final recommendation.
The House Republicans voted as a bloc -- they were the only ones to vote as a bloc, and I think that was its undoing. They voted to oppose it because it didn’t repeal Obamacare, which to me seemed more like an excuse for the vote against it when they had already made up their minds to oppose it.… I don’t know if Rep. Ryan was the ringleader of the group, but he certainly was the most visible and well known."
Ryan blaming Obama for the commission’s failure is "disingenuous, misleading and the worst form of hypocritical politics. It’s the political equivalent of killing your parents and then begging the court for mercy because you’re an orphan."

Ryan's action is proof that Republican's have no interest in compromise, but only making the President's economic record look bad at the expense of America's economic health.

Gee heh, how come Reagan and Clinton could get things done? You are the great excuse maker and apologist for Obama. Isn't that a lot of work for you? I notice you don't try that for Biden. That shows you have some sense.
Join the turnaround team of Romney-Ryan. We need it.

We are an America in decline. Presiden Obama has accelerated that decline...yes, Bush's spending hurt us a lot, Obama's is killing us.

The question of the election is not that we will recognize that our current path will ensure there is not an America for our grand children, but whether we are willing to do something about it? Re-electing President Obama might be a nail in the coffin, or might not...I don't think we can take that chance.

Barack Hussein Obama has been distorting the facts in his own TV ads and with the complacent assistance of the leftist news media, no one has asked any questions. What more can be said of the biggest liar ever seen in American history. Maybe the news media has just gotten used to it but for the rest of us who haven’t had our memories dulled by too much reality television, the ads stink like a pile of crap. Funded by billions of dollars in campaign contributions pouring in from every pro-communist, pro-Muslim, America-hating leach, the campaign to reelect Obama has been bombarding us with distortions of the truth. One particular campaign ad has no dialog, just a moving scale of events that illustrates the collapse of our economy beginning in January 2008 and then showing the miraculous turnaround brought about by the Messiah/Muslim-in-Chief.

Excuse me,Just Vomited!!!!

I attribute congressional intransigence to Norquist tax pledge, the teaparty 'our way or the highway approach' and this term's greater political commitment to make the leader look bad at any cost.
Biden has more foreign policy experience than Romney/Ryan combined.
The Romney ticket is great if you like GW Bush's economic policy (because it is the same), Cheney's foreign policy and Santorum's moral agenda, but that's not for me.
Both Democrats and Republicans want to reduce the deficit, but I don't like the way Ryan would get us there. His medicare plan enhances the giveaway to the insurers and providers at the expense of those who can least afford it. Obama's approach realizes savings from the providers and taxes those who can most afford it.

“Hope and change had a powerful appeal. But tonight I’d ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as President when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”-Romney

actually the economy is adding jobs, the stock market is doing well, under the circumstances, given an already huge and growing deficit (due to Bush's unfunded tax liabilities - Medicare Part D, Bush's stimulus, two wars) and a worldwide recession and slow recovery

We would be doing better, but congressional Republicans are defeating recovery at every turn.

The section 8(a) business development program is statutorily authorized to provide a vehicle through which Federal agencies can make prime contract awards to small businesses owned and controlled by individuals certified as socially and economically disadvantaged. Federal agencies are authorized to set aside specific requirements for competitions limited to 8(a) participants, and sole source awards may be made to participants where their dollar values do not exceed, inclusive of options,$5 million for manufacturing requirements and $3 million for all others.

To qualify for the program, a small business must be certified by SBA. By law, certain groups may be presumed to be socially disadvantaged. The legislation specifically refers to the likelihood that African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Native Americans, and Subcontinent Asian Americans are socially disadvantaged. Other individuals can be admitted to the program if they show through a "preponderance of the evidence" that they are disadvantaged because of race, ethnicity, gender, physical handicap, or residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of American society.

RNC needs to work harder to garner more minority votes to win this election. I looked at the crowd meeting Ryan's plane at Richmond, a highly minority demographic city, yet saw little to no ethnic minorities. Granted, it was a video and hard to determine minority presence. At least there was a decent, albeit white, female presence.

Don't waste any time here ageing with Pat, She's enthralled with the rich and powerful, ironic since they see women as the original sin, they've forgotten that women have the right to vote and will be the major reason Romney will loose.

As candidates go we're not being offered any great choices. But the real question you need to ask yourself is what kind of country do you want to live in. The arguments could go on forever but they amount to two 2 simple questions, do you care about your neighbor? or, do you not give a rats behind about anyone else but yourself? If your a female the choice is clear, if your a male, can you swallow enough ego to do the right thing? OK, 3 questions, but it ain't rocket science. Of course the real problems are in congress, the white house is just all show.
