I realized last night the Joey McMensa reminds of a loud uncle I have. He was a child of the sixties, dropped acid, worshipped Crosby, Stills, Nash, Jefferson Airplane, etc. When we had a get together like Thanksgiving or Christmas whenever any point of view that was presented that was contrary to his he would SHOUT you down with leftist lies, socialist bullshit and laugh loudly as he felt that he just humilated you.
That is exactly what Uncle Joe did to Paul Ryan last night.
In a move that reminded me of Biden’s creative storytelling at the debate in 2008, I was on the lookout for Biden’s two most common techniques, and found them there in spades last night. Number one, the storytelling about secret meetings and his hearsay reporting of things said there that supported his position. Last night it was, actually there were several, but last night I recall his closed door meetings with the Joint Chiefs of Staff who allegedly told him they didn’t want any more money for the Pentagon. Hard for Mr. Ryan to respond to this absurdity because of course he was not present. Second technique and this is a big one, the bald-faced prevarication; deliciously delivered by Biden with all the faux conviction he could muster. I heard Biden state that one of two primary reasons why the Administration was acting differently in Syria than in Libya was, get this, that Syria was “five times” the size of Libya. Biden told the moderator that this physical difference was, in part, the basis for the Administrations rushing into Libya and staying out of Syria. Well, I’m no geographer, but I do have Google, which confirmed that Libya is actually almost ten times as large as Syria! Biden explained that Administration policy was based on a fact that was dramatically, absurdly, wrong! As Mr. Ryan said, we deserve better than this.
Obviously Biden thinks what’s happening in the world and in our nation is just a joke. I have never felt so humiliated for our country than I was seeing him up there laughing about Iran building nukes. Laughing about our citizens being murdered by terrorists. Laughing about 23,000,000 Americans being out of work. Laughing about trillion dollar deficits and raiding medicare. The man is a raving lunatic!
I think Joe was passing gas the whole time and laughing at how they were silent to keep himself entertained.
My father in law has a saying “Always keep an extra packet of bullshit in your pocket”. By what I saw Joe Biden had a skid of bullshit in his pocket on Thursday night.
Tuesday morning Politico’s Roger Simon posted an article which was clearly not meant to be taken seriously. The thrust of the piece was that Paul Ryan had become unhinged and was “marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, ‘If Stench calls, take a message’ and ‘Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.’” Stench was supposedly Ryan’s new nickname for Mitt Romney.
If that weren’t outlandish enough, on page two of the piece, Simon writes, “A word about PowerPoint. PowerPoint was released by Microsoft in 1990 as a way to euthanize cattle using a method less cruel than hitting them over the head with iron mallets. After PETA successfully argued in court that PowerPoint actually was crueler than iron mallets, the program was adopted by corporations for slide show presentations.”
Lawrence O’Donnell at MesSNBC took the piece seriously and took the airwaves repeating the story as the gospel.
Hey Larry, satire – it’s a vocabulary word taught in middle schools across the country that apparently overpaid liberal talking heads refuse to understand. Clearly these people didn’t even have the education or professionalism to finish reading the article. If you can’t realize that a computer slideshow presentation program was not released as a way “to euthanize cattle,” I’m not sure there is any hope at all.
When I heard this guy my soul ached… not because he was attacking Romney, but because of the abhorrent tune he gave to his voice. He’s in the media for Pete’s sake! He can’t go around bashing a candidate with such offensive “sarcasm” when the one he protects is out there feeding innocent American lives to the Muslim Brotherhood everywhere in the world.
It makes me sick; it literally fills me with nausea. To think this guy is somehow influencing people with his abominable lies makes me want to cry of sorrow for the millions of Americans that will suffer if Obama keeps the White House.
O’Donnell and his cronies are just gutter snipes. He is worse than Olberman and we know what happened with him. When I see him talk, it is like snake oil is coming out the corners of his mouth. He can smile and say the most ridiculous things at the same time. How bad will it get before no one but the kool aid drinkers will watch? Matthews, maddow(MadCow) are all snobs. They think they the air heads that they know so much more than we do…that they will inform us the groveling zombies what to do on Voting Day. They are ignoring highest gas prices and going up, Insurance going through the roof, High grocery and meat prices, no Jobs, businesses going out of business, freedoms taken away, our military gutted, coal mines closing this month in record no because of epa new regulations, no oil drilling, no new trade agreements, homes in foreclosure, and in Dec/Jan you will be hit with the highest taxes ever and don’t blame Republicans, this has been on Obamas docket for 2 yrs. It was his big idea for sequestration and now doesn’t want to say it was his baby
It baffles me how the dems have their heads so deep in the sand and continue to give Obama a free pass no matter what he DOESN’T DO. And on the same token, some of his own party can’t even support him because of his broken promises and failures. We are headed toward a European way of life and this president will continue to take us there if reelected. I do not want to leave this earth knowing my daughter will struggle to make ends meet from the decisions Obama chooses for her. From the beginning he basically lied to us as Americans that the penalty to waive health care coverage was NOT a tax. We found out otherwise, it’s the largest tax imposed on Americans in history. His budget cannot pass his entire 3 year term it has been voted down.
I’d take any horror movie with more blood than life people in it than this kind of press…being examples, yet he chose to keep it partisan.I can keep going, anyone else want to continue where I left off??. as a voter I have always went to the polls on election day and casted my vote believing I did my part as a citizen. But this time around its much more than casting a vote. Its more about trying to convince anyone who will listen- those being a democrat- who still are on this trip Obama is this great leader and has been good for our country. If you take the blinders off and see that this great speech giver has fed you nothing but promises he can’t deliver, hopefully you will see his record will prove why we are where we are. And it’s not from an inherited mess he claims to have been handed.
Republicans are being “ridiculous” and are trying to “distract attention” with their focus on Vice President Biden and his controversial comments earlier this week, White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
“They know that what they’re saying about this is ridiculous,” Carney said at a briefing with reporters, adding that it’s an “obvious” attempt to take attention away from policy issues.
Whom do we have to thank for this turn of events?
Sarah Palin, that’s who.
Biden’s week of gaffetastic speeches was and still is terrifying Democrats, especially as the contrast between Biden and Paul Ryan grows more and more obvious. Barack Obama had the chance to replace Biden with Hillary Clinton, a move which would have energized the Dem base. But he could not be seen agreeing with or taking the advice of Sarah Palin, who suggested that Biden’s “chains” remark should earn him a firing. When Palin appeared on Fox and said that Biden should go, Obama had to keep him. Palin forced his hand.
The dummy Palin outsmarted Professor Obama once again. Heh.
Since his selection of Paul Ryan, it appears the commentariat has grudgingly conceded this election to Mitt Romney. They’re doing what they can to create tension in a story of their own creation with an ending they didn’t expect, but deep down they realize the end has come. The reason for the unexpected ending to this narcissistic melodrama is because Sarah Palin has bravely stood her ground. As a cornerstone for conservatism, Ms. Palin never flinched as foul barbarians launched attack after attack upon her character. With no support from supposed allies, Ms. Palin’s bravery and cunning paved the way for Mr. Ryan’s nomination as VPOTUS. Certainly, conservatives have had their foot soldiers in the past, but Ms. Palin is the one who history will be unable to ignore as the stalwart who never wavered in the face of marauding bands of sycophants, shining a guiding light in a dark night of our Republic’s life. We all stand upon the shoulders of our past and we own an eternal gratitude to Ms. Palin and her family for their strength and courage. By choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney has publicly acknowledged the strength of conservatism and the courage of Ms. Palin. For without her example, Mr. Ryan would be just another backbencher in a party of clowns used for the entertainment of evil men and nasty women who’s allegiance to a Russian named, Putin, is stronger than for an American named, Palin.
Joke Biden on the ticket means that Obama has no running mate to act as the attack dog. True, he has the press, but they are becoming embarrassing and the folks are (slowly) getting wise. No one thinks the press is nonpartisan anymore. It’s either back into the attic with Uncle Joe, or risk ridicule and gaffe…
It would be a total no win for Hillary Clinton to even consider the VP role. If President Obama should get reelected he’ll have set the dems so far back by the end of his first year they will never see the light of day again.
Sniff, Sniff, Wow Verne What is that Smell? OH LORD, IT’S THE SMELL OF TEAM OBAMA CAMPAIGN DESPERATION!!!!!
Email to Obama Supporters dated 8/13/2012
Congressman Paul Ryan is the poster boy for the extreme Republican leadership in a Congress whose overall approval rating is 12 percent. His plan to dismantle Medicare is deeply unpopular with the general public and especially undecided voters.
You might be wondering why the hell Romney picked this guy. But this is a strategic pick that carries real danger for us.
Here’s the calculation: Mitt Romney doesn’t need or expect Paul Ryan to convince even one undecided voter to cast their ballot for him. That’s not what he’s on the ticket for. He’s there to reassure and inspire ultraconservative ideologues and corporate interests that they will have one of their own a heartbeat from the presidency.
That means tens or even hundreds of millions more dollars for the Romney campaign and the array of outside groups supporting him – and if current trends hold, more than 90 percent of that money will be spent on TV ads — lying, distorting and trashing Barack Obama. Those ads will have more impact on undecided voters than anything Paul Ryan himself does or says.
Mitt Romney is convinced that picking Paul Ryan is a great investment for him. And his campaign is already touting the pledges and donations they’ve received as a result, with fundraising events planned for this week.
We’re already being outraised, and we can’t afford to fall further behind. Our records show that you’re still waiting to make your first online donation — now is the time.

Obama for America
Yes Team Obama Romney picked Ryan simply to raise money for ads “lying, distorting and trashing Barack Obama?” Sure Democrats, because it’s the Romney campaign with the track record of baselessly accusing opponents of dodging taxes and giving people cancer…
Here’s a lie in the last 24 hours:
On Monday, Barack Obama claimed that Rep.Paul Ryan (R-WI) blocked a bill giving aid to farmers and ranchers hurt by the severe drought, ABC News reported. “I am told that Governor Romney’s new running mate, Paul Ryan, might be around Iowa the next few days,” he said while in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “He is one of the leaders of Congress standing in the way. So if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities.”
There’s only one problem with Obama’s statement – the House passed a stopgap farm bill that is currently being held up by Democrats in the Senate. Not only did the measure pass the House, Rep. Ryan voted for it.
Paul Ryan is not a perfect man we’re not expecting perfect. And I am not here to apologize or make excuses for things our guy might have done. At this point, we’re content with someone who isn’t an America-hating POS like BO. Used toilet paper has more class and integrity than BO.
Paul Ryan had the testicular fortitude to cast votes either yay or nay. BO marked his (very short) tenure in the senate by voting “present” – whenever he bothered to show up. I’ll take a guy who’s wrong half the time over a guy who’s wrong every time.
We’ve learned more about Paul Ryan in the past 48 hours than we know about BO. More lies have been told about Paul Ryan in the last 48 hours than truths have been made known about BO in the past 51 years. Again, I’ll take the known quantity over the unknown.
Obama never passed anything as Sen. Obama. Ryan is 2 up on him already. Obama made his money from George Soros claiming he got a bunch of $5 & $10 donations from all over the place but never disclosed it…Transparency at work. Obama never held a job in his life. He was a community organizer and part time teacher at the college that he later chose a Supreme Court Judge from to pay her back for allowing him to borrow young minds.
Wall Street Journal
NORFOLK, Va.—Mitt Romney picked Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, a decision that could spark enthusiasm for the Republican ticket among conservatives and all but ensures the election will turn to deep philosophical divisions between the two parties over spending, taxes and entitlements.
In Mr. Ryan, 42 years old, the Romney campaign gets a conservative who has spent recent years at the center of national debates about the size and scope of the federal government. With his proposals to revamp entitlement programs for future retirees and the poor, he has become a hero to conservatives and a target for liberals.
Mr. Romney praised Mr. Ryan as “an intellectual leader of the Republican Party” who also has “shown the ability to work with members of both parties to find common ground” on tough issues. “I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t respect his character and judgment,” he said in front of USS Wisconsin, a World War II battleship that now is a museum and carries the name of Rep. Ryan’s home state.
Ryan is THE ABSOLUTE best pick for Mitt. He doesn’t get down and dirty because he has the truth on his side and truth to dhimmicrats is like a cross to vampires. Drives them wild! Normal, thoughtful people are repulsed by their OWS tactics; let’s just hope there are enough of us left to overcome the massive voting fraud headed our way.
Turning our huge ship of state around will be a slow and painful process, hindered by the establishment types and entrenched lefty bureaucrats, but we have hope that many of the progressives and RINO’s will be sent packing. I believe the ousting of Lugar was a good indication of where this could go.
There are other cracks appearing such as some of the MSM questioning the veracity of the “Romney causes cancer” ad. Romney & Ryan stand for decency and integrity which will become glaringly obvious to even the most rabid Obama Borg. Whether or not the spell can be broken remains to be seen, but the fact that the 44th President is catering to every radical group on the left, those he already “owns,” and ignoring the majority of regular folks, tells me he is in desperate straits.
Divide and conquer works in this country only IF your side makes up more than 50%.
Romney did not pick a running mate. He set a priority. He framed the debate. He did not base his pick on genitalia, skin pigmentation or country of origin. This somehow passes for deep thought among the OCD world of politicos. No, Romney did not choose a running mate, he chose a Vice President.
The vice presidential nominee has several duties–ability to aid the nominee in getting elected, bring some essential ability to the table, and be seen as able to become president in the event something happens to the person elected president.
I think Paul Ryan would be able to meet those requirements easily. He would ease pro-life concerns about Gov. Romney’s past positions, he has experience on Capitol Hill and he is not a political lightweight on the national stage.
Mitt needs to address the nation’s financial state head-on. Our nation is running up debt at a rapid pace. The Federal Reserve is creating money with nothing to back it up. If Mr. Obama is re-elected neither of those situations are likely to change.
When our nation’s financial house of cards collapses, Medicare and food stamps are not going to be exempt from massive cuts. Thanks to Obamacare, a plan is already in place to deal with the elderly population. The “death panels” will just refuse to extend life-saving care to the elderly past a certain point. Do you really think a sympathetic media will take the government to task for allowing the elderly to die? The elderly who experience the reality of Obamacare will not be around to vote in future elections.
As for the Feds money making operations: each dollar they create makes the money we own worth a little less. We are paying for the Feds counterfeiting operation every time we buy gas or groceries.
The Obama economy can lead to the defeat of many Democrats in November if the Republicans put it in terms that the voters can understand. They need to put it on the issue of how it affects the voter’s savings and health care.
Paying off America’s debt and building future prosperity is more important than being POTUS. The debt degrades America’s ability to defend herself and to lead in world affairs. How can America tell China how to behave when America’s children are mortgaged to the Reds?
Cometh the Hour- RYAN will fix the budget.
SURPRISE, SURPRISE SGT. CARTER the Midwest Nancy Pelosi – Occupy Chicago Marcher Jan Schakowsky doesn’t like Rep Paul Ryan’s Budget Plan
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky is just one more reason why the good people of Illinois are waking up and voting in freshmen Republicans who want to bring back true responsibility and respect to this government. And Schakowsky is also an excellent example for term limits. In addition, every one of the 435 House and Senate should be told that their pay and all their incentives will be put on hold indefinitely until a budget is not only established but accomplished for one full year.
So? None of his “plans” have ever been anything except more bennies for the rich, anyway. Why is it easier to believe that 150 million Americans are just lazy than it is to believe that 400 are just greedy? Sane people would vote against it BECAUSE it’s Ryan’s plan.
If you haven’t got the feeling that the Democrats are intentionally bankrupting the country yet, their attack of yet another responsible budget by Rep. Ryan and the House should be a huge red flag. It’s about time the OWS got on board and began calling for something specific, like Reid’s resignation for not doing his job. After all, if the country goes bankrupt because of government spending with no budget plan in place, who will pay for their freebies?
It is amazing how many people will listen to this clueless witch and say – “we don’t need a budget. We can just keep raising taxes and borrowing from China”. Those people will be the first to complain about the cost of food, gas, and energy. Of course, there is a new currency on the horizon… Obama-bucks! The first bill printed will be 1,000,000,000,000 Obamas. It will be worth less than a penny, which is where the US dollar is headed thanks to our (so called) president and his band of morons.
From The Hill
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on “Meet the Press”: “What we’re getting from the White House on this conscience issue, it’s not an issue about contraception, it’s an issue that reveals a political philosophy the President is showing that he basically treats our constitutional rights as if they were revocable privileges from our government, not inalienable rights from our creator.”
All due respect, it’s not “paternalistic”, Mr. Ryan. Obama is being PATRONIZING, and he is a narcissistic liar with delusions of “godhood” that describes him. A person who lies consistently, because he thinks he is the only person who should rule the “little people” while at the same time, usurping his powers believing he is a “god”. And, why not? Obama has been treated like a “god” since day one. Look at the way his followers pant and drool over everything he has said or done? Remember the Hollywood Spectacle in Denver? THAT is the arrogance of a person who believes he IS a “god”, and therefore, has a right to rule over the people. And, he wants ANOTHER Hollywood Spectacle in the Bank of America stadium so he can accept his party’s nomination. And, he’s rubbing non-union workers’ faces in it since it was built by non-union workers.
How much do people need to see who Obama really is?
Ryan is just half right.
Obama despises the American values of the Middle Class, Capitalism and true Judeo-Christian Principles. This is because of three particular reasons:
a) He is the product of an unwanted conception (at least from his father point of view). He hates healthy Middle Class American Families because he did not have one. He claims he wants to help the Middle Class, but in fact what he wants is to CONTROL us.
b) He is a disciple of the Theology of Liberation (a la Saul Alinsky style). He believes that Rich People are evil; he thinks the Middle Class is mean and selfish. So do his wife and Pastor.
c) He belongs to a selected “Club” of the “enlightened”. To them Our Middle Class American Values and our Constitution mean NOTHING. He and his ‘fellow Club members” are convinced that they know what is best for Society, and WE WILL DO AS THEY SAY whether we like it or not. The Democratic process is irrelevant to them.
What baffles me is the lack of outrage in the halls of congress. This man has urinated on our Constitution again and again but where are the articles of impeachment? Congress should be diligently creating such articles for Obama – violation of 1st Amendment, failure to honor Ally agreements, illegal use of the peoples’ resources; Holder – dereliction of duty, gross incompetency, racism; Geitner – gross negligence, gross incompetency; Ginsburg – failure to defend the Constitution as proscribed by the Oath of Office; Kagan – failure to recuse herself due to insider knowledge; – there are others but these will do as a start.
The man will stop at nothing to get reelected and fill the campaign quest to be the billion dollar man. Now he’s prostituting his daughters for campaign purposes. How many hard working Americans are grinning ear to ear after taking an expensive ski outing and then pulled into the nearest gas station to fill up to get to work on Monday morning. Total elitist narcissists!
King Obama is more than paternalistic and arrogant; he is a Marxist with power. Since when do Marxist’s, respect a Constitution, a Bill of Rights, the rule of law. They believe they are source of all law. Obama is no different. Remember, he wants to “rule.” He accepts no compromise because he has a right to demand anything he pleases. The Declaration of Independence had a word for such rulers. Our last king, George III was this – a “tyrant.”
