Ryan lets his inner wonk flag fly

There are 64 comments on the CBS News story from Sep 23, 2012, titled Ryan lets his inner wonk flag fly. In it, CBS News reports that:

The phrase, common among staffers on Paul Ryan's campaign, is parlance for permitting the seven-term Wisconsin congressman to embrace his inner wonk, the side of his personality that led him to become the youngest House Budget Committee chairman in a decade as well as an intellectual force in his party.

Mitt Romney's Son
Signed 'Abortion' Clause
In Surrogate Birth Contract
9/21/2012

TMZ has learned Mitt Romney's son Tagg -- who had twins this year through a surrogate -- signed an agreement that gave the surrogate, as well as Tagg and his wife, the right to abort the fetuses in non-life threatening situations ... and Mitt Romney covered some of the expenses connected with the arrangement ... and it may boil down to an incredibly stupid mistake.

Translation: Tagg and Jen gave the surrogate the right to abort the fetuses even if her life wasn't in danger. All the surrogate has to show is "potential physical harm," which could be something like preeclampsia -- a type of high blood pressure that could damage the mother's liver, kidney or brain, but is not necessarily life-threatening.

Meanwhile, Tagg and his wife, Jen, had the right to abort the fetuses if they felt they would not be healthy.

Sources connected with Mitt Romney tell TMZ, Mitt was involved in the surrogate arrangement because he paid some of the expenses connected with the agreement. We do not know if Mitt Romney read the contract or knew the terms.

Mitt has said, "I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother." Otherwise, Romney is against abortion.

Attention lance lowlife!!! You could say that in a political sense and you can say Governor Sarah Palin carried 2008 for John McCain. Without her McCain would have done much, much worse. Paul Ryan is a good man and if I were biden I'd be very worried in a debate. Governor Palin made a moron out of biden. John McCain might as well cooked obama a gourmet meal...He pissed off a lot of people.

Pass this excellent video around to all, and ask them to do the same.

http://whyichangedmyvote.com/...

These are former Barack voters who give reasons for why they voted Obama in 2008 and why they will no longer in 2012.

It is sponsored by the courageous and esteemable former DNC Congressman, Artur Davis.

HAVE A LISTEN.

God help the U.S.A. from the brink of disaster. Barack Obama is depressed and has been for the past 2 years. He can no longer lead. Biden would be a disaster. Romney is not so bad for Democrats. Jobs are what we need, not measly food stamps worth nothing in an era of rising food costs and gas prices.

Paul Ryan is a smart guy with guts unlike the Dumbasses Obama and Biden. I think Biden is actually smarter than the Kenyan Clown Obama.

"Ryan's father died when he was 16, and Ryan then received Social Security survivors benefits until he was 18. He was able to save his Social Security to help pay for college. Ryan likes to talk about how he used loans to pay for college, but the fact that he went in with a big chunk of savings thanks to Social Security is something he doesn't emphasize quite as much."

**********

Romney, Ryan, and Rubio: The three stooges.

Romney insults Ryan and Rubio and they take it.

From that clip he insulted Paul Ryan with his "victim" comment and Rubio with his "latin" "joke". And these two will still stand by him.

Why do I get the impression that I know the type of person Mormon Rich Money was in high school? And the Ryan and Rubio are the two stooges he made fun of at their expense?

CBS Doesn't Air Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads
10:39 PM, Sep 23, 2012 By DANIEL HALPER

Tonight, CBS aired a 60 Minutes interview with President Obama. But curiously enough, the news magazine show did not air a clip of Obama admitting to interviewer Steve Kroft that some of his campaign ads contain mistakes and that some even "go overboard."

CBS describes the clip this way: "President Obama says some of his campaign ads might 'go overboard' or contain mistakes, but most of them simply highlight the differences between him and Gov. Romney."

"Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides," Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, "and say they've been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads."

Obama responds: "Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics."

Kroft responds: "Aren't the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?"

OBAMA: THEN WE WOULDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY..........

If Ryan is so great why has congress not passed his budget. Or at least passed it so Obama can veto it? He leads the budget committee, but cannot get his budget passed, for some time now. So he blames the president, but cannot get his own budget passed by his won party controlled House.
This is the "leadership" we need?
Ryan talks alot, but I'm not seeing any action. I'm not seeing any reason to pick these 2 ass-clowns over Obama.
