    Ryan is not stupid, but he was armed with a lot of malarky, and still couldn’t come up with specifics, when asked repeatedly. When your only weapon is rhetoric, you’re unarmed.

    I wonder, having seen Romney change positions over the last two weeks, if Ryan would have accepted Romney’s invitation to be vp. The Romney running against Perry, Newt, Cain, Santorum, Huntsman(I liked Huntsman) is not the Romney who debated Obama. Ryan is having to deny his own positions in order to advance his running mate and I can’t imagine he appreciates the changes made.
    I agree with dtroutma that Ryan isn’t stupid, especially when compared to some of the other minds in his party, but I do believe he has willingly compromised his principles for his party’s candidate and in hopes of being well positioned for 2020 if not 2016. I noticed he has continued his run for office in Wisconsin. Nice to have a back up position.

    “Sure—that is so much more important than the economy.”


    You’re right, social issues are far more important in the long run than the economy. The economy will fluctuate, and can be jiggered with short-term fixes one way or another. But legislation on social issues has a much longer lifespan. Why do you think the Republicans run on economic issues but spend all of their time in office trying to roll back social policies?


    That’s the main reason I’ve never voted for a Republican, and probably never will.

    ‘but I do believe he has willingly compromised his principles for his party’s candidate ’
    -
    What principles?
    -
    Ryan went to school on Federal money, but wants to eliminate it for anyone else.
    -
    Ryan claims to be fiscally conservative, but voted for two wars, Medicare Part D, and a Bush stimulus without paying for _any_of them.
    -
    He voted for the sequestration and then claimed he didn’t and says it was all the Democrats’ idea.
    -
    He begged for stimulus money for his district ‘to create and save jobs’, but says that ‘Government can’t create jobs’.
    -
    He claimed that the plant that shut down in his district in 2008 was because of Obama’s policies.
    -
    He won’t name any loopholes to be closed. In one interview, he says he hasn’t run the numbers. In another, he says there’s no time. In the debates, he says six studies have shown that the math is correct.
    -
    Let me know when you find any of his principles he has compromised for Willard. He has none that he sticks to, in any case.

    “Why are the Dems still blaming Bush?” Just as a hunch how does “BECAUSE HE DID IT!” sound to you?

    Ryan’s already hip to the game… After his first budget proposal – a remarkably honest document about its agenda by political standards – went up in flames, he removed all the specifics from the 2nd so that the CBO couldn’t score it. And that was before he signed on as VP.


    I’m sure Ryan understands Romney had to do yet another 180 and tack back to the middle to have a shot at winning.

    Why can’t you Republicans get over that Biden won the debate? All I heard from Ryan was a lot of hot air than anything.

    “Then why are the Dems still blaming Bush—even laughing stock Biden continued this spin Thursday.”


    (A) How is that question relevant to anything I said?


    (B) See walruscarver2000.


    Show me a party that’s fiscally conservative but socially liberal, and I’ll consider shaking up my voting habits. There’ve been Rebublicans who aren’t xenophobic, homophobic, sexless theocratic troglodytes who favor punishing the poor for their poverty, but it puzzles me why they run under the GOP brand.

    Donkey Poo Malarky was what Biden the elderly Brat, epitome of the Democrat Party, tossed to the American voters in the VP “debate”….a privately funded serious attempt to inform voters of what the GOP agenda is……which Biden deliberately interrupted 85 times to keep Ryan from explaining the Romney-Ryan plans. Voters should know from 4 years of the Obama-Biden regime, what the Democrat agenda is.
    -
    Biden was on a mission to distract Ryan who has a lot of common sense information if he had the uninterrupted time the Moderator should have given him, to explain the critical issues at stake in the Nov.6th vote. Biden was also on a mission to distract Americans from the shameful record of Obama on economics, unemployment (we still have fewer jobs than we had Jan.2009), and the collapsed foreign policies….and the incompetence in a needless Libyan attack due to ZERO security and the loss of 4 American lives.

    Glenn Beck TV reran the VP debate and I re-watched it after I posted my comment 2 hours ago…
    IMO, it was worse than I remembered.
    the “moderator” was cutting off Ryan’s attempted answers,
    and she allowed and abetted and showed her appreciation for Biden’s antics and interruptions…Ryan had very few opportunities to complete his answers without Biden’s cutting into his time, without rebuke due if the moderator was “fair and balanced” for both debaters.
    -
    IMO, this VP-2012 video will be used for decades for classes for new politicians to train to debate, as the DO NOT FOLLOW BIDEN’S EXAMPLE.

    Ryan’s defenders are going bankrupt buying camouflage paint for their guy(s), just as the nation will if his economic plan is initiated.
