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!!!!!!

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.

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.

Popping the Rand Paul Bubble
American Spectator, by Jed Babbin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/21/2014 5:08:06 AM     Post Reply
Rand Paul will never be elected president—and that is a very good thing for our country, for a great many reasons. Paul is a libertarian first, a Republican second, and a conservative only when his libertarianism accidentally intersects with conservative values. And that’s not very often. Republicans, especially conservatives, have fought for civil rights for more than fifty years. Democrats were the principal opponents of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Paul, however, has gotten himself into trouble over the matter. For example, in an April 2010 videotaped with the Louisville Courier-Journal, he was asked whether he would have voted for the

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

The FBI has issued a stern warning to U.S. college students studying abroad: Beware of foreign intelligence officers who are discreetly targeting young, often naive Americans for espionage activities. Glenn Shriver seemed like any other adventure-seeking college student -- embarking on a study abroad program to China in 2004 while majoring in international affairs at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The cash-strapped college junior from Jenison, Mich., soon became an easy target of Chinese intelligence officers, who first paid him to write political papers in what seemed like a benign job. The People´s Republic of China officers then befriended Shriver

After early complaints that out-of-state firms got the most jobs, some local construction trade workers and union members in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia say they´re now benefiting in a big way from the Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas boom. That vocal support from blue-collar workers complicates efforts by environmentalists to limit the drilling process known as fracking. "The shale became a lifesaver and a lifeline for a lot of working families," said Dennis Martire, the mid-Atlantic regional manager for the Laborers´ International Union, or LIUNA, which represents workers in numerous construction trades.

After a lengthy study of the plans for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. State Department issued an 11-volume report back in January confirming what most experts had already concluded long before then: the vital project would not damage the environment or increase the rate of carbon pollution. But liberal activists weren’t happy and have used the 90-day automatic review process that followed that report to furiously lobby the administration to stop the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast refineries. The key player in that effort was Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens supports gutting the Second Amendment in order to remove any limit on government infringements on the right of self-defense. In his new book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, Stevens — who generally favored maximum government power during his 35-year tenure on the high court — proposes, among other things, changing the language of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution so that the amendment would read, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms [when serving in the militia] shall not be infringed.” Stevens acknowledged in

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on

But as he discovered this week, there is also an element of personal responsibility when it comes to commuter train safety. Blumenthal was holding a press conference Friday on the Milford Metro-North station platform when an Amtrak train came barreling into the station and almost knocked him out cold.

With little fanfare, Vermont is preparing to become the first state to implement a single-payer, government-run health-care system. The Vermont plan, if implemented, would abolish private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded system under which the state government directly pays doctors and hospitals. Of course the state is having a bit of trouble figuring out how to pay for the program’s estimated $2 billion price tag, considering that the entire state government’s operating budget is currently just $2.7 billion. Currently under consideration is an increase in the state sales tax from 6.9% to 29%. At

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds.
