New name for Paul Ryan: Mr. Malarkey. A top qualification for POTUS is the ability to tell the truth. Paul Ryan failed miserably. Hard to tell if that was intentional or an IQ issue.
Paul, Ryan is certainly not an IQ issue, but Romney and Ryan are very smart guys and it undercuts the Democrat's to perpetually attack them on the brains issue.
Romney BS'ed his way all the way through the Republican primary in a very focused patient way and he has spent like 40+ million of his own money to do that. It is very much likely that Romney is not what Republicans think he is, at least not totally. The choice of Ryan was also another dodge since it means he will be out of the Congress and in the rather lackluster position of VP if Romney wins.
One thing is for sure, all Americans are losing from this, and those who gain are only the ones who have access to power right now, meaning lobbyists and party partisans who are cutting them out by making these debates just light TV dramatics.
Pierce in Esquire:
"For years, Paul Ryan has been the shining champion of some really terrible ideas....
The ideas he could explain were bad enough, but the profound ignorance he displayed on Thursday night on a number of important questions, including when and where the United States might wind up going to war next, and his blithe dismissal of any demand that he be specific about where he and his running mate are planning to take the country generally, was so positively terrifying that it calls into question Romney's judgment for putting this unqualified greenhorn on the ticket at all.
Joe Biden laughed at him? Of course, he did. The only other option was to hand him a participation ribbon and take him to Burger King for lunch.
You know what's the difference between Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan?
I am ashamed to admit that I did not watch the VP debate because I figured it was just two morons BSing us with voices elevated. Did I really miss anything?
BTW, That User Name is already, I really like and agree with the last two lines of your comment.
