The truth about the
Ryan-Biden debate

Fox News, by Dick Morris

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/9/2012 5:17:18 PM

The vice presidential debate gives Paul Ryan a unique opportunity to explain Mitt Romney’s economic programs and ideas in front of a massive national audience. We will see Paul Ryan at his best. And that is very, very good. He is not just a vice presidential candidate. He is the author and intellectual founder of the modern Republican agenda. There can be no more profound and articulate a spokesman to defend and elaborate the Romney agenda to America. It is rare that the ideological and substantive creator of a public policy agenda gets to weigh in during a national public debate.

Comments:
Morris goes on to dismiss Plugs Biden as a party hack called upon to defend an agenda he did not design.

All Ryan needs is a draw. He should just be himself, do what he does, not underestimate Biden, and not overplay his hand. His job is only to consolidate what Romney did last week.

Biden could complete what Obambi started last week. The end of the Obambi regime.

I watched part of the Palin-Biden debate from 2008, and I thought Sarah mopped the floor with old joe.
But most of the media said Old Joe won.
So no matter what happens this goaround, I expect most of the media to say Old Joe won again.

FTA:"Beyond the challenges he has in public speaking, Joe Biden is not in Paul Ryan’s league when it comes to understanding issues and grasping the problems America faces."
Calling Biden a mental midget is an insult to midgets. Ryan will wipe the floor with him and not break a sweat, they should have sent plugs to the Nickelodeon gig where he would be on a level playground.

This is precisely the moment why so many of us wanted Ryan on the ticket. To explain and defend the fiscal plan of the GOP. I want him to take it to Joe, whoop on him upside the head. No playing it safe, don't let up, run these clowns out of town.

One of the few missed opportunities in the Romney/0 debate was when 0 bashed Paul Ryan’s budget plan (for lacking “details”).
It was a big fat slowball for Romney to smash, but he passed on it. Ryan needs to point out that his budget plan has passed the House more than once with bi-partisan support, only to be kicked under a chair in the Democrat Senate. 0-bama’s budget proposals were so abhorrent that not a single member of either party was willing to vote in favor. There is nothing wrong with pointing out this absurdity - loudly.

While I think Ryan will do well against Biden we must caution ourselves and not get to confident and end-up having a debate performance like Obama had last week which is what the MSM is looking for to boost O back up. We are, after all, dealing with the dirtiest people(dem's & MSM) on earth lol

My observation : the RvO debate gave the LSM a huge cause to suck in the breath and hold ‘til blue in utter astonishment that they could no longer prop up the empty chair. The evaluations on the day after were practically bland in disillusionment and confusion while pundits struggled with the words they needed to “explain” the disaster everyone who saw it already knew about. Finally, on the second day, the dam burst as the conservative commentators gushed with excitement and the liberals began exclaiming, “Please, Ø, say it ain’t so!”

The R v B debate will be a closely watched event as the liberals come into it with baited breath, knowing their boy Joe is so prone to breaking a verbal bone at the most inopportune moment(s). Ryan is a word master, a debating champion with a mind like a steel trap and a memory that can challenge a whole herd of elephants. He is also outlandishly clever and courageous, with a borderline mean streak in him. Biden, on the other hand, is a real hip shooter and not known for mental discipline. Biden is also capable of young boyish impishness in debates, a trait that leads him often down blind paths of logic and point making. He is also prone to ramble, quite easily losing himself in his own mental wanderings. The one thought that many liberals and Ø supporters have is hope that Joe can somehow come up with a strong surprise “Gotcha” moment that will quash all that Ryan might assemble against him. That is highly unlikely when you consider all the powers Ryan will bring to the podium, and the lit fused potential disasters Biden will bring. Biden’s best strategy would be to simply call in sick at the last minute before air time.

My prediction is that after the shellacking Obama took last week Biden will come out aggressive, arrogant and obnoxious. And being the mental midget that he is, he will fill the airwaves with idiocy like you have never seen before. Ryan may not get a word in edgewise - but he may not need to. Stand up Chuck!

Martha Raddatz has been in bed (as Biden would say..."literally") with NPR, The Washington Post, and the FCC (only counting current and ex husbands there...I suspect she's got a few more notches on the gunstock).

So with her at the helm aware of the dire situation in Camp Obama, I predict she will overreach to put a muzzle on Ryan. It'll look petty, unprofessional, and pre-determined.

And I cannot wait! Pass the popcorn.

The only hope Biden has is a sympathy vote of sorts

He might be able to pull off looking like every-bodies favorite crazy uncle Joe.

Otherwise Ryan needs to be careful to not look like a bully. That could be tough when he has to as Joe to take shoes off to count to 20

Slow Joe's best strategy for this debate will be to take a lot of Anti-Diarrheal medication prior. Or, just call in sick.

Second, he then needs to remember to never face away from the camera to prevent the wide streaks down his legs from showing.

Third, remember that you are Zero's last and only hope of survival. Hope that doesn't make you nervous hee hee.

Joe, you might want to try rubber bloomers, then try not to appear like you're waddling when you exit the stage. Since you're already a pantload it'll be quite a challenge.

FBI: Middle school gang

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”.

THE missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have flown around Indonesian airspace on the night it disappeared, in what may have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection. CNN reported a senior Malaysian government source saying that the missing jet made the detour after it had left the range of Malaysian military radar. The latest details emerged as new satellite calculations put the likely location of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the same spot where Chinese patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected sounds coming from about 4,500m underwater on two consecutive days.

Thanks to Samsung, the White House may be saying sayonara to the selfie.

Ortiz took the selfie with Obama Tuesday during the team’s visit to the White House. The pic appeared spontaneous at the moment, but it was revealed a day later that the act, taken with Ortiz’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone, was actually a public relations stunt orchestrated by the Korean telecom conglomerate. “Maybe this will be the end of all

An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

probe of CIA’s harsh interrogations

WASHINGTON — The toxic partisanship that’s paralyzed most Washington lawmaking for years often spared congressional consideration of intelligence matters. Not this time. Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.
