The VP Debate Cinches It: Paul Ryan Is Unqualified to Step in as POTUS
#232 Oct 12, 2012
I have said this before -- as soon as Romney/Ryan detail any plans, the dems in Congress have to denounce it in order to support their party.
Once in office, though, Romney has proven he can work across the aisle and put forward proposals which are reasonable and can be discussed and common ground found.
By the way, what proposals have Obama/Biden put forth in this campaign? Anything other than "we're gonna fix it"???

So the progressives have a vice president who is an idiot drunk and a heartbeat away from the presidency and a nuclear military. Elected to federal office decades before the internet and five hundred stations, this guy would have been "Palined" if new and he is a Democrat! Ryan was a gentleman at the debate and Biden did not deserve it.

rugby/lyan '12: deception.

I recorded the debate and watched it again -- Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times by my count. Actual television time (without commercials) was approximately 81 minutes -- an average of one interruption every minute by Biden - real nice.
And Biden's smirks, laughs, and grins were incredibly disrespectful and made light of very serious issues.
Ryan was respectful, put forth statistics, made good points, and showed he's much more capable and comfortable. That comes with confidence in the goal and knowledge of how to achieve those goals.

Still today America asks the Romney/Ryan campaign:
What are the god damn specifics?!?
Inept: adj. Paul Ryan at debate.
Five point plan, eh?
So, aside from loopholes (which were never described either), there was nothing else articulated by Ryan with any specificity. LAME!
Foreign policy? ahem, let me clear my throat...
Ryan: "The Obama administration is doing it wrong at every turn."
But what would your policy be then?
"Basically, we agree with most of their policy."
And... "Look out middle class! They're coming after you!"
My wife couldn't give a rats ass about anything political. I can't even get her to vote, which I had done many years ago. I got her to watch the debate, the only thing she picked up on was how Ryan gave her the creeps the way he looked at the camera with the last statement above.
Wonder how many others feel the same???

Joe Biden ran the debate like he and Obama have run the country. Flip, uninformed, no real plan and when confronted by facts, get a little choked up about how you just want to save the elderly and babies.
#238 Oct 12, 2012
Your talking specifics. We are suffering from your progressive results! Its time for those scumbag thieves to go.

The Vice-President showed that he is an incompetent fool and tried to intimidate the Congressman with his childish behaviour during the Debate.
He is definitely NOT the man to be second in charge. I now see why American politics during the past four years was so damaging to the country, the American people and the whole world.
The present Administration was a failure and the American economy went the wrong way. This performance of Mr. Biden is a reason why the people of the world hate America and what it stands for.

It was debate, moron. Where you do battle. You pastey, sterile cons don't understand that. Like you don't understand the American people.
#241 Oct 12, 2012
Nice spin! Nobody buying it. Try again!
#242 Oct 12, 2012
The morons on here, jeez!
Biden a belligerent drunk, Biden was mean, Biden interrupted...
What it boils down to is:
My heart pours out to you!*insert Paul Ryan smirk*
#243 Oct 12, 2012
Name calling, really? That's all you libs do when challenged about anything!
I understand the American people - most are respectful and kind. Biden had more than enough time to get in his points and digs and he did NOT have to be so disrespectful.
Both parties made points last night, but only one did it with courtesy and respect.
Never before (in my lifetime) have I seen such contentious, nasty rhetoric for the last four years. All Obama has to say is "we'll fix it" about the myriad of problems we face. He makes speeches telling us it will be better -- then proposes no policy. All he has is speeches, no substance or follow-through.
Obama/Biden are not stating specifics. As soon as Romney/Ryan state specifics, they are then handcuffed and will not be able to work with the left to find common ground (something for which Romney and Ryan have strong experience).
For instance, in case you cannot comprehend, if Romney/Ryan say they want to send another man to the moon. The dems in Congress have to oppose it in order to support their party. However, if it is brought up after Romney is in the WH, it can be discussed out in the open and all parties can contribute to a common decision - something Romney and Ryan are qualifed and willing to do.
Let me know if you require further explanation.

I don't care what Biden was. I knew what he was before he debated. It begins on being a false Christian who pushes his faith to the max. Thirty years of seeing photos of Ash Wednesdays ashes on his forehead is tiresome. Watching him and other false politicians like Congressman Brady destroying neighborhoods for their false beliefs while enriching themselves and special interests is disgusting and evil. They will get their and their families will someday. Alive or after death.

Biden destroyed ryan. it's sad watching a kid try to argue with an adult.
#246 Oct 12, 2012
Thank you for making my point. All libs do when challenged is name call and bad mouth. They have no substantive response - much like their "leaders". Too much koolaid, I guess. BTW, Ryan did not smirk, that's entirely Biden's realm.
#247 Oct 12, 2012
I thought he was "DRUNK"! I sat here and was
so embarrassed to know the people were watching
this VICE President look like a fool. Lie,Laugh,
smirk,rude, and actually like he was on Something. You who will vote them back
in office, "you couldn't miss this man embarrous the country not to mention himself"! He thought
he did good and WON. Will anyone tell him?
Obama thought he was great. Oh, heaven help us
please. Today, I saw the dems try to excuse his
actions and though he did good. They couldn't
believe what they said, they just couldn't...What
were they watching, BIG Bird? This was really
the lowest point in this election. WE do know
when he lied. 86 times he interupted Ryan and
laughed.........Go ahead and lie to the people,
the PEOPLE are NOT all THAT DUMB....I'm ashamed if
he and you are NOT.... Did we actually vote him
for our vice president?

I watched the ballgame instead....who won? did Biden smile and smirk any? That million dollar smile of his is his best asset.
Keep in mind, Joe plans to run for Prez in 4 years, so don't be too surprised....
