Rubio would of been better, but would of took the spotlight.... Ryan might get some Ron Paul supporters...but will lose some older people on medicare...and does nothing for Independents.

So, he isn’t pure. Would you rather have Protman or Pawlenty?

I sure hope not.

My worthless 2 cents` worth cogitates that Romney could have split the black vote with a black VP pick.
But what do I know?

Why would he lose seniors on the Medicare issue?

AND, I know independents who are VERY concerned about our economy...and who are impressed with Ryan.

“”Why would he lose seniors on the Medicare issue?””

He won’t! Someone posted that who doesn’t know seniors very well. I and every other senior I know passed the “senior” age many years ago and we’re smarter than that. Whoever believes that is believing the democrats same old tired phrases. They really need to think of some new ones!

Be prepared for dem ads depicting seniors not only being rolled over a cliff in their wheelchairs but to be shot, strangled, poisoned, and stabbed in the bargain ala Rasputin - whatever it takes!

Remember that a vote for TARP was a vote to buy up the toxic assets that were created by bad govt. policy in the first place. He wasn’t voting to take over companies and if that was the case I don’t think it ever would have passed. I still think he was wrong but you gotta remember the context.

Obama later decided unilaterally that he could use the TARP money for whatever he damn well pleased.

I’m with you on the bailout vote but his overall economic philosophy seems to be sound to me.

I’ll bet Joe Biden has been crapping in his pants all day. He got a debate free-be with Sarah, but Ryan will no doubt eat his lunch.
He’s probably already working on excuses to use on debate day, so as not to do the debate....I’m sick....my dog died....my car is in the shop so I can’t get there....this is the anniversary of my great great great uncle’s bother-in-laws’ cousins’ death.... Hillary may be getting shot at again in Sarajevo, Bosnia Hercegovina that night and, I, as Assistant Commander-in-Chief, have to take a Brigade of SEALS over there to get her out. Therefore, with me being so busy, I recommend the debate be rescheduled until mid-November.

The drug bill bothers me somewhat too. He is definitely a Mr. Spender. But I will vote for him in November.....Again voting for the VP and not the President.

With Romney at the head of the ticket, his selection of Ryan is prety benign. Had he selected someone like a Palin (and I’m not necessarily suggesting that he should have), he might have excited the base more.

As it is, the ‘Pubbie ticket is basically a yawner!

What kind of poll is this? To have your vote count you have to enter with two passwords. One word is entirely readable. The second word is hieroglyphics with horrible penmanship. Needless to say, I wasn’t able to vote.

You forgot one. I don’t recall exactly but at one session in DC many, many years ago, he turned up late because of a “root canal.” Iran/Contra? Watergate? I really don’t remember but I do remember that. He came into the room, took his seat and made his apologies!!!

This is it!!! I guess it wasn’t as old as I thought it was but at least I’m not losing it YET!

By Newsday | October 14, 1991

WASHINGTON — First, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden, D-Del., had the national headache of presiding over the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Then at 2 a.m. Saturday, he had a root canal.Committee aides said that one of Biden’s teeth began hurting while he was presiding over the first day of hearings Friday. The pain in the tooth got so bad that early Saturday morning Biden called a dentist. But a few hours after the root canal, he was back on the job — though when out of public sight, a friend said, “he was wearing a big ice pack on his mouth.”

Yes, and you wouldn't be alone in doing so. I've tried 13 times and can't get past the damn captcha. I've cycled through about twenty more and have given up.

I have 20 / 18 vision and still can't make these out.

Ryan is a Congressman of a swing district that in 2008 voted +4% for 0bama but got 68% for his reelection. He couldn’t do that without the supports of the independents and perhaps some Democrats.
