<quoted text>When have we ever heard of a vp candidate stating that the presidential candidate misspoke? That was Ryan trying to clean up Mittens gaffes, LOL! Too funny...Their so busy trying to push and force their neocon bs on Americans that they can't contain themselves or even get their chit together. They're a bunch of deranged, entitled and rabid lunatics. I mean, Romney goes and gets a tan to make his skin darker before speaking to a Latino audience? WTH?
They took Man Tan off the market a long time ago. Mittens is using a much more potent product...

Yeah, they now have a problem with old people. Dirty Harry called the GOP 'dumb' to ask him to comment at the RNC in Tampa in the first place.

OK, just what part of ANY change to Medicare, to SAVE it from throwing all seniors onto a lower form of Obamacare, that ONLY APPLIES TO ANYONE 54 OR YOUNGER AT THE TIME OF IMPLEMENTATION, do you not get? What part of you get a CHOICE OF REGULAR MEDICARE OR THE VOUCHER SYSTEM, do you not get? Are you reading challenged or are you simply repeating the DNC script you got on your e-mail without thinking even for one second if the information was correct? Really, it's pathetic how ignorant you guys are about the realities of this plan. NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE who is on Medicare NOW or who will be on Medicare within the NEXT TEN YEARS OR MORE will be affected by any change. Really, just what is so difficult for you lemmings to grasp about that concept? And what do you not understand that anyone under the age of 54, when the program will start, will have A CHOICE? Really, this is not difficult to grasp, my 9 yr. old grandson could grasp it, surely you are at least as intelligent as a 9 yr. old.
So, since I'm just under 54, I should lose what I've paid dilligently into all my life?

You're quite obviously the lemming for the GOP - repeal and replace with what? Now, you can CHOOSE to either get a voucher or get Medicare? Tell us who would opt for a voucher instead. Tell us, where are these "High Risk Pools"? Tell us, how does this convoluted train of thought change the structure of Medicare?

That's no choice - your "9 year old grandson" would understand this - were he not home schooled, by you of course.

Where are Romney's or Ryans figures regarding this new shift? Do they even have any?

You truly are a very stupid old lady.

Go ahead - I'll give you time to ponder your reetort.

Co-sign. I enjoy reading your posts CarolO. As usual you are spot on.

Voting for Obama is only part of it. They have got to get those Republicans out of the Senate so they don't have the majority. Starting out with voting for Zerban for Ryans congressional seat is a good start.
Ryan is not going to stop pushing privatizing social security or the voucher system as long as he is in Washington.

I don't know....with that "47% of Americans believe they are victims dependent on government comment" sounds like the Republican RINOS now have a problem with old white veteran men and old white men who are retired now collecting social security.

the rich. that is the only group they don't have a problem with now.

No sweetie, the generations that did more than run their nasty mouths like jerks like you. The ones that made this nation what it is and your miserable, insufferable azz to survive! The ones that fought wars, worked and paid their taxes, demonstrated for fair and equal rights for all. These are the generations we're talking about, not loud mouth, mean-spirited, neocons and warmongering jerks like you! Doesn't take much backbone to run your mouth!

Ur statement alludes to current collectors being thrown out in the street. Whatever happens, anyone 54 and younger will be the ones affected. But a shill like you knows. Playing dumb and moving forward to you means others get stomped on. Unfortunately, America will never, never ever compete again with other nations like this. The social security issue could have been cleaned up a lot more then now a quarter century ago when the boomers were in their prime earning years. But nooooooooooo! This fix is one of many needed in the total government in everything. Since we block every way of helping ourselves do to politics things are only going to get worse.

True, but we know there's a segment of them, especially in the southern states that continually voted against their own interest because (gasp) they thought they were voting for the White, I mean Republican party that protects their interest. However, now that old Mittens has told them he considers them to be "trash" (putting it politely) and he doesn't care about them, perhaps they'll finally use the brain God game them and vote in their "best" interest or suffer the consequences.

I know! Isn't it hilarious! One misstep after another. You can't make this stuff up. Also, did you see Mitten's shameful attempt to appeal to Hispanics by getting a tan? I mean, really, how clueless is this man? It's such a low and stupid thing to do. smh...

The problems with social security is the borrowing from the fund from both parties and not paying it back, PERIOD! The rest of what you're posting is nothing but bs! It's the same thing with people's pensions with the state, like Christie Whitman borrowing from the teacher's pension and not paying it back to outright corporate thievery robbing the workers blind. Want to guess what party the majority of the crooks and politicians belong to?
It's dumb asses like you that let them get away with their thievery with your stupidity!

The booing was to be expected. Ryan should be grateful.

In '30s Germany any one who dared voice opposition to the "Progressives" in the Third Reich got way worse than booing for daring to express their opinions. ObamaLand isn't that bad yet.

That tan was beyond hilarious...... He is so inept in so many ways. It's also funny to me how key people in the GOP are making trips to Iowa to position themselves for 2016.
