Ryan says he feels 'good' about debate versus Biden

ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says he feels “good” and is “looking forward” to the only VP debate of election, taking place in Kentucky in fewer than 36 hours.

“I am looking forward to giving people a very clear choice,” Ryan told reporters during a quick stop to Old Farmer’s Creamery. “Look, Joe Biden has been on this stage many times, this is my first time so sure it is a nervous situation because Joe Biden is one of the most experienced debaters we’ve had in modern politics. But the Achilles Heel he has is President Obama’s record and I am really looking forward to giving the American people a very clear choice. “

...

Ryan said he was not upset about what his running mate said Tuesday to the Des Moines Register editorial board. Romney told the newspaper “there’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.”

“Look, no positions have changed, our position is very consistent,” Ryan responded.

Mark Levin commented that Biden didn’t win six terms by being a poor debater. But then I think of the other reprobate morons like Rangel and Waters who were elected to multiple terms, and I realize that smarts have absolutely nothing to do with it in Democrat districts/states.

Does anybody know how Biden did in Dem primary debates when he ran for Prez (before the ol’ plagiarizing thing came up!)?

Pretty funny - some people are trying to get this election buzz to be about abortion and big bird.

Romney and Ryan meanwhile are trying to keep the conversation about the most important thing to the American People: the Economy and Jobs - and now with a side trip into foreign policy since BenghaziGate becoming important to us all.

I can’t imagine Ryan getting good “visuals” (what dumb sluts go by) out of the debate.

It’ll be “Boy” Ryan vs “Papa” Joe and “Big Mama” Martha.

But I’m sure he has plan and I’ll watch to see what it is. After all Joe can’t make Obama look bad, though Martha is supposed to make Jim Lehrer look bad.

Both Rangel and Waters are representatives, not Senators. There ARE districts full of abysmally ignorant, stupid, or bigoted voters. But not entire states. Yet.

Biden will have the same problem this week that Obama had last week — defending Obama’s record.

Biden didn't win six terms by debating anything.

His first Senate election had some shady dealings, but no one asked the right questions. Since then, he has simply been the incumbent.

Uh.... of course there are! Marxistchusetts comes to mind immediately.

Not saying that a few conservatives don't live there, but they are overwhelmingly loony leftists there, as much as they are in congressional districts.

But the Achilles Heel he has is . . . that he's as dumb as a rock.

An incumbent politician in Delaware has a lifetime sinecure. Biden is actually good at laughing, smiling, joking, pretending to be one of the guys. But he's a congenital liar, and the gaffes come a mile a minute.

But, of course, his biggest advantage is that the moderator is an Obamanoid shill with numerous connections to the Democrat machine. Biden will be fed the questions beforehand, and she will do her best to avoid letting the Republican make her look like she failed to smash the conservative villain, as all her liberal pals will expect her to do.

” There ARE districts full of abysmally ignorant, stupid, or bigoted voters. But not entire states. Yet.”

I grew up in Newton, Massachusetts. Newton is a wealthy suburb of Boston. The Newton residents are successful, and they vote for left wing freaks that would take their last dime, and the residents would probably thank the left wing politician who took their last dime.” Well, it was a good cause” You have to have lived in Mass to fully understand how masochistic, and looney these people are.

Reelection rates are phenomenal, for both parties, and many Congressmen and Senators rarely or never face a serious challenger. My Congresscritter, Mrs. Myrick, was effectively unopposed for several terms.

When was the last time Joe Biden faced a well-funded Republican opponent - or Democrat primary challenger - and debated him or her? Is there video?

And "debate" in the Senate? Give me a break!

In Maryland debate is not necessary you just need to smile and make some reference to some obscure other democrat incompetent nitwit.. that is a victim.. There is no need to make sense..

In Rhode Island you need to brag about making sense even if you don’t.. thats good enough..

In Delaware even Rhode Island and Maryland rejects and incompetents can be elected..

The only time I was ever in Massachusetts, was in the 1960s - to visit Mystic seaport. Aside from that and another visit to NJ, I’ve lived in the South all my life. So, yes, it is difficult for me to understand Northerners. Even if I’m married to one...

Plenty to get Biden on.

Ryan better jump at the chance.

Michelle Malkin should have been his coach.

Biden is a vicious gutter fighter and Ryan has displayed an intellectual style when arguing.

Could be a tough night, unless Ryan can toss it back at Biden.

” Aside from that and another visit to NJ, I’ve lived in the South all my life.”

Smart guy.

I don’t know why anyone would live on the east coast, unless
they had to. I jumped a plane 6 hours after my college graduation(1976), and I have never returned.

Ryan must keep the debate about Obama’s record. If he does, he will do fine.

When Biden brings up that they killed Osama, Ryan should bring up the fact that Biden named SEAL Team 6 as the ones who handled the mission - then they were targeted and killed not long afterward.

I’m hoping with Ryan’s math skills he’ll highlight all the non-medical crap in Obamacare, cornhusker’s kickback and la purchase to mention a couple. I’m sure the good people of the US have no idea what’s in that 2,000 page monster and I’ll bet they wouldn’t be too thrilled about those taxpayer-funded votes.

Thanks for the info. So do I understand that Seal Team 6 was involved in the (righteous) capture and killing of Osama bin Laden and in the ill-fated defense of the American ambassador and his post in Libya?

Not in defending the Embassy in Libya, those were former Navy SEALs working for a private contractor.

“Michelle Malkin should have been his coach.” Just what do you think is wrong with Ted Olson? He has won more Supreme
Court cases than most lawyers alive, including Gore v Bush, and he was Ronald Reagan's lawyer.
