Haha, should’ve had Biden doing victory laps around the table, since he beat the kid so bad. That’s close to what Bill Maher said on his Twitter: “Hello, 911? There’s an old man beating a child on my TV”

All the political pundits said Biden was great, won the debate and destroyed Ryan. This just proves how over the top the PMSNBC pundits are.

Biden was a very rude, crude old man, and came across in exactly that manner.

How can anyone think the littte liar won? No matter how much Hannity/Boortz/Limbaugh/Beck/Ericson/Cain you soak up, the world does run on facts, not Fox sound bites. Lyin’ Ryan doesn’t offer many facts.

Watch our democracy become a Plutocracy, taken down further by the dumb states. Red States are the least literate, and most government dependent. Is the enslaved-to-the-elites lifestyle hard-wired in these ignorant GOP Tea Party takers?

For the record, I’m a native Southerner. I still live a life of rugged individualism, independence, and accountability, surrounded by yuppies and want be rich takers. This GOP ticket is a pair of born into it elites faking being something they aren’t. The Southern Sucker vote is there’s though. Ignorance rules.

I still have not read of any specifics from the Republican candidates. I wouldn’t go to the auto mechanic and leave my car for repairs without a complete list of what was to be fixed and how much it will cost before they begin the work. Why would anyone vote for the GOP who prefer generalities to hard cold facts and numbers?

Yes, these fakes have secret tax plans as well as keeping their tax returns secret. How can anyone support such fakes?

China will be the winner if Romney 1040 and PX90 Pumped Boy Poser get elected…not working Americans, and certainly not Americans who aren’t rich.

These frauds want to keep taking your wealth, health, and opportunity…and exporting them. For their enrichment.

Well, Janet, even the Sunday morning pundit shows all agreed that Obama has laid out NO plans for changing the direction the economy is going, but maybe he can fix your car for you.

Inbreeding of dimocrats and the so-called ‘news media’:

“People who haven’t been paying attention were surprised to learn of this week’s debate moderator’s (Martha Raddatz) close connection to the President. He was a guest at one of her three weddings and a she was invited to his wedding and a visitor to the vice-president’s home just months ago. Other bloggers have made lists of the substantial number of media figures married to Administration appointees and Democratic Party figures. I don’t know why this should be surprising. The incestuous relationship between the media and the Democrats is of such longstanding that you could say the Capitol is like Deliverance with better clothes and haircuts.”

“In this week’s dueling banjos (vice presidential debate) she played her role, working in tandem with vice President Biden to block Congressman Paul Ryan from having an uninterrupted sentence of consequence. Still, Biden could not exercise even a modicum of restraint and his constant heckling, inappropriate laughing and smirking, certainly brought to mind Lonnie, the inbred banjo playing boy in the movie.”

“Despite the best efforts of these two, Congressman Ryan held his own and suggested a maturity and gravitas no one in the present administration has.”

Scrivener–if you haven’t been able to figure out Obama’s proposals in 4 years then you have a real learning disorder. The proposals have always been there, opposed tooth and nail by the Teaplicans. If voters really want to end this hostage situation and give Obama’s proposals a real chance to be negotiated with real Republicans then what they have to do is defeat every Teaplican Congressman and Senator they vote on.

And claiming that Romney voters are racist… how original. At least you didn’t “bad mouth” your opposition.

Did UGA accept your application to meet a particular demographic quota, despite you inability to spell or use English properly?

How amusing that you have the nerve to call others who disagree with your ill-formed opinions “UNEDUCATED” and “UNINFORMED,” UGA Economics Major. LOL!

“BAD MOTHING THE PRESIDENT”

I wonder from whence cometh the ‘bad’ moth? You know that it is serious when someone attempts to sic a ‘bad’ moth on you! If the ‘bad’ moth is fast, you could be naked in a matter of minutes!

God help us if this person actually graduates with a degree in economics. The only purpose he could possible serve is helping Obama to ‘cook the books’!

UGA Econ Major: Good luck finding a job in this economy when you graduate. Maybe you’re a freshman because you sure don’t understand basic economics yet. Maybe a few decades of paying taxes will teach you more than that degree.

These GOP frauds are hilarious…won’t show if they pay income tax, want to cut taxes, and supposedly tax deductions…they must be working for Communist China and multinational banks…they are sure sending our jobs over there, and blocking job creation here.

RCB, if a few decades of paying tax provide a basic understanding of economics, what do a few decades of tax avoidance do?

I flew back Friday from Phila to the ATL on a red-eye Airtran flight and sat next to a U. of Del grad and when I mentioned Biden, she just rolled her eyes and said everyone in Del is very scared he is one heartbeat away from the Presidency… That is a scary thought….Reminds me of our “Carter” days down here…. So when Obammy gets re-elected; will our gas prices be at $8/gallon and the deficit at $32 Trillion when he is done with us???

Well, the rapidly losing republican Presidential candidate should take the opportunity and release the last 12 years of his tax returns.

“republican Presidential candidate should take the opportunity and release the last 12 years of his tax returns.”

President Romney has misplaced those tax returns. The returns were stored with Obama’s college transcripts and Obama’s application to Columbia where he applied as a ‘foreign student’. Why don’t you help Hussein find those documents and we will find the tax returns at the same time?

I would wager a significant amount of money that a 1040-EZ is the predominant tax form filed by dimocrats who ACTUALLY FILE A TAX RETURN!

cc,

Despite you worn, tired, crumpled, aging talking points, the Federal Tax Returns are readily available for reprint courtesy of the IRS if the candidate requests it.

There is a difference between losing documents and HIDING documents. Of course, when one has something to hide that if exposed would prevent garnering the support of the stupidest among us then I understand why he hides it.

The Veep Creep Tweet-off was for entertainment purposes only. Like when Rocky did that charity fake boxing/wrestling event with Hulk Hogan in Rocky 3. BaRocky Obama lost the first fight to Mormon Creed just like in Rocky 1. Now we have the rematch (BaRocky 2) on Tuesday. Gee, I wonder who’s gonna win that obviously-choreographed bunch of hooey. How stupid do the unwarranted and unwelcome powers that be think we are?

Yes, I agree. There is also a difference between that and spending a million bucks to insure that documents never see the light of day.

CC, please stop with the usual GOP tomfoolery about Obama’s college records and transcripts. That’s nothing but a distraction from the birther idiots who want to latch onto any whacked out conspiracy they can.

As for the debate, I found it quite funny when Ryan talked about how he opposed the stimulus, only to have Biden come back and remind everyone how Ryan wrote the administration requesting stimulus money.

Why? He’s already provided more information than is required by law. Is it because the honorable Harry Reid said so? Maybe it’s because those that think it’s unfair that he’s been so successful financially said so. Or, maybe it’s just another distraction.

Not to mention this stuff has been fact checked. I’m still trying to understand what possible purpose it would serve by seeing the President’s transcripts? He obviously graduated. Oh, I forgot that foreign student crap I guess. God help us all.
