    I guess the ‘dumbing down’ of American schools started much earlier that I thought!

    “Now we’ll get liberals in here who will claim that Biden is still telling the truth about the sizes of Libya & Syria.”

    You mean like how Palin supporters changed Wikipedia entries to agree with her misstatements?

    You know Michael, it’s really hard for anyone to believe that Ryan will be good for America. Most people have wised up and realized he is good only for the radical rich.

    Just the vote from the public means nothing.

    ReFlex-76, do you know what “geographically” means?

    I’m sorry, do you think Palin is running for Vice President?

    Another Biden lie….that the AMA supported Obamacare..
    .today at www.hotair.com …I found an article by Ed Morrissey that commented on the weekend (10/12—14/12) Endorsement by the AMA key policy committee of a Medicare Reform Plan that shares key traits with the ones being promoted by Romney and Ryan.
    “..expressing support for giving beneficiaries a choice of plans (with government contribution of a standard amount to buy traditional fee-for-service or another insurance plan approved by Medicare…..PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MEDICARE AS AN OPTION FOR SENIORS.”

    I have no idea what you actually think this is saying, but if you go to the AMA themselves (instead of a few cherrypicked sentences out of something), they are very clear about supporting the Affordable Care Act.

    Regarding what you are talking about, not so much the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) as the Medicare reform: the actual AMA proposals are in a .pdf here, and resemble Ryan’s proposals only in a few elements. The only people characterizing this as “like Ryan’s plan”, however, are on the Romney campaign; and they are carefully leaving out all the differences and the criticisms the AMA have of Ryan’s proposals.

    Israel, 6.5 million people, Iran 65 million people, blowing up yet another country for a minority makes how much sense? NOBODY should get blown up, but another war is NOT the answer!!

    BTW, the current Israeli Ambassador , MIchael Oren, gave up his U.S. citizenship to represent Israel. What about that thing about citizens of the U.S. giving up allegiance to this nation? Even for a naturalized citizen, wouldn’t this represent the “t” word?

    Lynne B….I quoted the article as saying AMA’s endorsed plan SHARED KEY TRAITS with the 2nd version of Ryan’s plan.
    I do not think I said the plans were twin copies!
    when the AMA endorsed the ACA, I don’t think they knew how major parts of that mandate would anger doctors and patients.
    The AMA leadership may be as out of touch with ordinary citizens as the Democtrat leadershp and Obama/Biden are, because they have lost a lot of members in the last few years.
    The AMA does recognize Medicare must be reformed.

    If the size and weight of the brain indicated intelligence the neanderthal would be smarter than us.

    That’s still not geographic. That’s population. Zing!

    egads are you numbskulls educated in the “New Math”????
    Ramirez cartoon compares the land area (geography) of Libya and Syria.
    math the old-fashioned way is Syria’s 71,498 sq.mi. divided by Libya’s 679,362 sq.mi. which is 10.5 times larger Libya than Syria.
    Ramirez does not mention “Population”……
    this explains why you read “news articles” and miss the pointsaltogether!
    BIDEN SAID LIBYA WAS 5 times larger than Syria.
    LIBYA is 10.5 times larger than Syria.
