Just posted a nice piece from Peter Foster of the Telegraph:
"Obama’s election strategy has collapsed, says Romney camp as their man begins to believe"
It is a freezing cold autumn night in Ohio, but as an expectant crowd gathers under one of the Buckeye state's famous big skies it is suddenly evident that Mitt Romney's new-found bounce isn't confined to the opinion polls.
I like the image conjured by Foster and suddenly realized how much better I've been sleeping lately!
I think Paul's best strategy would be to simply refute everything Biden says by reminding viewers that it's untrue. The fact that Obama/Biden are lying about just about everything seems to have taken hold amongst the voting public.
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7
The problem with Obama's response of saying "He didn't challenge Romney's lies" to his debate failure is that if it can be shown that Romney wasn't lying then by default, Obama was.
He should have said we have a difference of opinion on the best way to approach the problems the country faces. By not doing that Obama put himself in a logical box. If Romney and Ryan are shown to have been telling the truth(They have been despite what the hard left says)then the only response is to adopt their opponents position - or endorse them and drop out of the race.
I'm on pins and needles so I am not going to watch it live. I think all the pressure is on Biden to putt Obama's sorry butt out of the fire. I don't think Ryan could lose it tonight, but I do think Biden could end Obama's presidency tonight. At least I am hopeful of that!
I've got my popcorn and my vodka drink. Ready ready!
First question for Biden was Stevens murder? Amazing! So he gives the pap about "bringing to justice" and tries to attack Romney's statement. Ryan's answer is pure 100% truth. Trying blame the video and now us! Excellent!
Same silly Biden smirk, same "my friend..." garbage. Moderator even tries to derail Ryan by bringing up the misdeeds of soldiers last year when the topic is about what happened last month. Ryan had an excellent opening to bring up Obama's partying in Vegas and schmoozing with Letterman instead of addressing the crisis, but it's good that he stayed on message.
Yes #68 he is trying a whole bunch of things at once, those included. Biden is also grasping for an opportunity to ape Romney in debate #1 saying "I don't know what you're talking about" - because that worked so well. Only problem is when Biden says that it's true!
And OMG the little girl "moderator" just showed her true colors - she just started debating Ryan! I call foul!
I can't believe Radditz is allowing Biden to interrupt Ryan. It is rude and disrespectful. Biden's laughing and smirking is juvenile and undignified. He's such a jerk!!! Ryan is cool and unruffled and he has the facts. I don't know if I can take the whole debate. Biden just sickens me. I'm having difficulty getting this posted. The site is very very slow and IE can't display the page. It's frustrating.
About Biden's goofy expression. I think that is a left over from when our girl Sarah did a ''Bobbit'' on him in his last debate with her.
This was painful to my ears as wearing ear plugs. Radditz kept interrupting Ryan 20-30 seconds into an answer to explain more. She had no control, only the BIAS we know is ABC. This debate sucked.
Biden did nothing but outright LIE, and Ryan could have taken him every time to the mat if only he was a frequent poster here and knew daily events. It would have been a real smackdown if Ryan could have thrown Biden off, with explaining GM got stimulus money to bail out the UNION, not the company. Romney was right to say it should have gone under and let the bankruptcy courts bring it back...or not.
After the first few comments here when I refreshed I could not get back in for the rest of the debate. I could not even get into the main page so I could read stories. After a half dozen refreshes it was nothing but total lockout.
Maybe these wrt for debates should be on another URL so as not to block the main site.
Seeing only 88 comments just now as I finally got in tells, sorry about it, this was a failure.
But let's be honest on the other side. So many people wanted to be here that the site just crashed. Ah well, maybe next time.
Biden's smile (often at inappropriate times) reminds me of Alice in Wonderland:
Alice: My Daddy told me to beware of those who smile a lot. Cheshire Cat: Why? Alice: Because they are either very jolly all the time, which is unlikely, or have something to hide. Cheshire Cat: But I’m not smiling. Alice: What’s that on your face then? Cheshire Cat: It’s a grin. Alice: I don’t know if it’s better or worse, because a grin is a sort of giant smile. Cheshire Cat: Smile or grin, maybe there’s another possible reason for it. Alice: What’s that? Cheshire Cat: Maybe it’s because I’m mad?
WE THE PEOPLE don't like jerks and Biden's picture is in two places in the dictionary next to the word jerk and next to the word idiot. Also, the people knew Biden was an idiot and now they know he is a jerk!
Ryan presented the facts with clarity, wisdom and respect for both the rude and typically obnoxious Biden AND the yappy moderator. Martha, the obviously biased, 'molderator,' also repeatedly interrupted Ryan making it 2-to-one against Paul Ryan. I prefer the self disciplined, knowledgable & therefore merited Paul Ryan as VP than the current smart aleck, rude and shifty guy at that table!

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided
Details buried in the United Nations report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack point directly at elite military formations loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, some of the strongest findings to date that suggest the government gassed its own people. A weapons inspector collecting samples near Damascus. The inspectors, instructed to investigate the attack but not to assign blame, nonetheless listed the precise compass directions of flight for two rocket strikes that appeared to lead back toward the government’s elite redoubt in Damascus, Mount Qasioun, which overlooks and protects neighborhoods and Mr. Assad’s presidential palace and where his Republican Guard and the army’s
UNITED NATIONS – U.N. inspectors said Monday there was "clear and convincing evidence" that chemical weapons were used on a relatively large scale in an attack last month in Syria that killed hundreds of people.They said positive blood and urine specimens provided definitive evidence of exposure to the nerve agent sarin by a large proportion of the survivors assessed by investigators. These results were corroborated by clinical assessments, which documented symptoms and signs consistent with nerve agent exposure.The inspectors in a report said "the environmental, chemical and medical samples we have collected provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
