Style to Ryan, Substance to Ryan
American Spectator, by Matt Purple

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/12/2012 6:15:53 AM

The pop-up wisdom among the pundits immediately following the vice-presidential debate is that Paul Ryan won on style and it was a draw on substance. (The exception is MSNBC, where the main anchors are still covered in champagne.) The style half is certainly true. Joe Biden came off as a loony, condescending vulgarian, grinning smugly during Ryan's answers, rolling his eyes, interrupting constantly. There was a telling moment at the beginning of the debate when Ryan was trying to discuss the president's foreign policy. "With all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey,"

Watched "Morning Joe" for a bit this a.m., and the Dems certainly know what a rude, looney fool Biden looked, as they showed NONE of the split screen footage, not did they mention it. And as to the substance ("Biden looked SO Presidential"), Ryan barely got a word in....Martha Ravitch (and why isn't anyone talking about this? Is it because Biden behaved so abominably?) let Biden cut in and interrupt some 80 times by Fox's count, even allowing him to respond to a Ryan response, while not allowing Ryan the same opportunity. I wish I had a counted how many times she let Ryan get to his point---finally---and cut him off mid sentence to go on to "another topic" or to allow Uncle Joe to break in. I would say that she was weak as H--- if I didn't also think she showed favoritism over and over!!!!!!! But Looney Joe behaved in such Al Gore squared fashion that she, and her ilk, are being overlooked!!!!!!

Biden reminded me of Tarzans chimp, Cheetah. I expected him to curl his upper lip, start to jump up and down while scratching fleas.

Biden without doubt is an ignorant south end of a horses' anatomy. His grin reminded me of an insane chimp. His rambling lies prove he belongs to Obama.

The left desperately needed to promote this debate a win for Biden,regardless of the real substance of the issues. We already know the left couldn't care less about substance so they try to overcome it with mountains of lies and misrepresentations. This thing about Romney cutting $5 trillion in taxes is goofy.If you're going to lower tax rates then you have to get rid of some deductions.The left complains about corporations abusing deductions but of you to cut them,they classify that as an attack on the middle class.

Every dime in the fed budget is someone's sacred cow that the left can demagogue if you cut it. Never mind the $6 million field trips they take on seminars or fact finding missions on resort islands.

Obama's been cutting contacts to republican owned business since he's been in office and it's one of the reasons the economy is failing.We see what leftist business like Solyndra produces.The Chevy Volt has been one of the worst taxpayer wastes in history but Obama wants to spend billions more on car batteries.Who knows how much of the money actually went to prop up UAW pension plans.

Biden looked and acted the fool. He was rude and condesending. He was trying to make sure no one heard or understood a word Ryan was saying because they might like Ryan. The moderator did cut Ryan off. We have an idiot for a VP.

This quote sums up the brilliance of Paul Ryan: "Leaders run to problems to fix problems," he said. "President Obama has not even put a credible plan on the table in any of his four years to deal with this debt crisis."

Then this really funny comment by the writer, Matt Purple, follows the above Ryan quote and it is quite a mental picture: All the Crest dental strips in Biden's medicine cabinet can't white out that simple fact.

Biden lost big last night by every objective measure--style, substance and truth.
Beyond the insane grins, shouting, em-phat-ic halt-ing talk-ing sty-le, arm waving, and 82 interruptions, he lied non-stop and wasn't coherent.
Huge lies--like Medicare is safe to 2030 because he worked it out that way with Reagan and Tip O'Neill 30 years ago; like the Obamacare requirement of forcing religious institutions to pay for contraceptives and abortifacients isn't a violation of their 1st Amendment rights; like the CIA was at fault in Libya, but this same CIA will be sure that Iran doesn't get a weapon delivery system.
Lie, lie, lie, grin, grin, grin.
Those lies were just so absurd, you couldn't believe anything he said.

I know the American Spectator is a conservative publication, but it is reassuring when they and so many other sources can cut through Bidens planned interruptive, childish and incompetent debating manner. Watching him sit there last night making faces when Ryan was speaking, was like watching a little six year old brat doing the same thing behind the teachers back. It was planned, but doesn't work against adults who are smarter and who have class.

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but Biden distastefully referred to a subject matter last night as an Obamanation. Just another one of Bidens brain dead short circuits. He didn't save the day, he made it worse. It isn't morning in America with these people in charge, it is looming disaster. The economy isn't getting better, it is still going down hill. When Thrift Shops are going broke, you know there isn't any money out there to spend.

Joe Biden last night lived up to his moniker of The Evil Clown. All that was lacking was a little face paint, a wig and a clown costume. There is something deeply unsettling about this unstable mixture of the comedic, the grotesque and the wicked.

Biden was performing for his base. His goal was to enthuse the demoralized looney wing of the moonbat party. Biden was trying to provoke Ryan into a screaming match, but Ryan wouldn't give it too him.

You cant win an election if your base stays home. And I dont think that this performance really helped him.

Too bad his teeth did not have their own LED spotlights. He really could have dazzled us with his "brilliance"...

I'm searching for a replacement for my stage partner in my lecture series. My old partner acted as a worst example of human behavior, as I lectured the crowd. His snarling demeanor, passing of offensive odors, interruptions, drooling and scratching at fleas and inappropriate gestures provided counterexamples of the finer points of etiquette. I need to replace him as he has gone on to become the vice president of the United States.

Regarding the first post, not only did the biased moderator allow Biden to constantly and rudely jump into Ryan's comments, cutting him off mid-sentence .... she ALSO cut Ryan off a few times.
.... Ryan turned the other cheek, which was okay in this case. Doing so highloighted Biden as the classless bully he actually is.

Very uncomfortable to watch. I would be embarrassed if I were a Democrat. I think the image of a rude smiling clown in voter's mind will now be something Obama will have to obliterate, along his own former debate behavior. He's got to get some dignity back in the leadership. God help Obama if he smiles once, memories will come crashing back.

‘Holy Grail’ of muscle
cars found in old barn
New York Post, by Michael Starr    Original Article

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

Are platinum ingots worth $3 billion sitting on the ocean floor, 50 miles northeast of Cape Cod? The United Kingdom--owners of a torpedoed WWII freighter said to have been carrying that cargo (plus jewels, gold and silver)--would like to know. So, too, would a group of U.S. investors who have sunk $8 million so far into the salvage effort, without having much to show for it.

What Happened to the Tea Party?

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
