UPDATE: Ryan Williams, a spokesman for the Romney campaign, responds:

“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will ensure America leads the world in the 21st century by strengthening middle-class families and creating jobs. President Obama and Vice President Biden have taken our nation backward with failed policies that have resulted in higher unemployment, more debt, and a weaker economy. A campaign based on rage and divisiveness can’t hide the president’s failed record.”

He’s only got ten fingers and ten toes, so he can’t count past 20.

Remember the incident when they locked reporters in the closet? I forgot what was going on but they didn’t want the reporters to hear something.

Seriously....ask him how many days there are in August, and he’ll sit down and take off his shoes and socks and start counting. Then, he’ll get a funny look on his face and say, “Ummmm.....more than 20?”

Keep an eye on the severity of these gaffes. They might be used as examples in the next few weeks to justify Joe’s dropping out of the race due to “devastating” health issues having to do with the brain. Forcing him out otherwise would be shooting themselves in their collective feet. Although I can’t imagine who they would pick to replace Joe—not Hillary.

The Romeny/Ryan response should be:

Look we all make verbal mistakes from time to time, but then the Obama team has spent four years trying to implement systems of governance that were tried over and over in the actual 20th Century and failed.

Now he wants four more years to perfect that sort of thing. It honestly makes you wonder which century both these men think they are in.

And since these two don’t seem to know their proposed systems fail, it makes you wonder if they’ve actually studied history enough to actually know what century they are in.

Boy this is starting to worry me just a little today...how can the Obama team NOT seek a new VP with this stuff. I worry they may go for the sympathy route so we can all feel sorry for Joe and his mental state...and then pull a fast one with a surprise vp pick.

These “gaffes” are starting to happen with too much regularity and are getting more outrageous. Could it be that they are setting the table for Biden’s dropping off the ticket for health reasons? “Joe’s gone off the rails, so he’s withdrawing... it has nothing to do with Paul Ryan, no sir, just Joe is too sick to continue.”

They might be used as examples in the next few weeks to justify Joe’s dropping out of the race due to “devastating” health issues having to do with the brain.

This could be a calculated strategy: these gaffes seem a little over the top even for 'Stand Up Chuck' Plugs Biden. It wouldn't surprise me if he's getting pressured to 'take a dive' for the team to clear the way for a replacement while giving Zero plausible deniability on the decision.

Although I can’t imagine who they would pick to replace Joe—not Hillary.

Oh, I could ... easily.
