      • This is really out of line and shows the low level of American discourse on politics ;this is a personal attack and is not acceptable

        • cliffjos54

          Not acceptable to whom? Your damn right it’s a personal attack, a personal attack on those stupid enough to back the Lying, Thieving, Racist, Woman hating, Animal hating, Conservation hating, Screw the Middle- Class every chance we get, As long as we and our friends have ours SCREW the Country and the People, Lowlife POS. If that is not acceptable to you , then don’t read it. You go out and play nice with these Scumbags and see where it gets you. When you can’t afford your medicine or the trip to the hospital to save your life or can’t afford to buy food then see who is going to help YOU.

      • cliffjos54

        You people { Right wing Republican Nutballs } are so stupid and one of the most Racist components of Our Society. Dubya lost 5 Billion cash in Iraq and they still can’t find it. Don’t talk to me about who lost what. You moronic idiots tanked the World’s Economy. Go home and read a book, maybe you will learn something, that is if you can read.

    So sad reading the comments below, where on earth do you get 5 trillion dollars from?, let alone the personal and disgraceful description of your President? Still, in retrospect, this is exactly why President Obama needs to be elected once again, as the alternative is jolly frightening, and i don’t even live there! Romney! I will kill Obamacare on the first day? We will create 12 million jobs? We’ve already insulted the UK several times, and hasn’t EVERYONE got a Mercedes? I think you need to rejoin the human race first old son! Seriously, what i got from Ryans speech was a lot more of the same old GW same old, and that is a recipe for more government interference, no matter what THEY say!At least Obamacare would actually do something positive, and not suck up to and embrace the medical insurance industry, AGAIN, that have had you all by the neck for so long.I watched with mounting dismay, the chairman of the GOP the other day, as he described, with a distant myopic air about him, President Obama in ways that can only be described as lies, innuendo and gossip mongering, that guy is an absolute disgrace, to his party and politics generally. I am absolutely for the party that can solve America’s fiscal problems in a reasonable amount of time, and that is NOT as little as four years, the party that can solve the problem of citizens being turned away from medical help because they can’t afford it!, and the party that will not drag that great country back to the stone age, or when an african american had to literally get arrested for not sitting at the back of the bus!You WILL however get exactly what you deserve, by voting either way! Best Wishes from an interested Brit!

    I must be living in an alternate planet. I heard commentators from the left state that Biden needs to be careful when debating Ryan. That is about as far fetched as Akin’s remarks about rape. Perhaps they were baiting Ryan. What I saw from Ryan was a squeaky mouse talking hyberbole. He lied and distorted in that squeaky voice. I am labeling him the GOP’s Grand (and really) Old (as in out of date) Party’s 2012 version of Dan Quayle. The new Dan Quayle is Paul Ryan. He comes across as childish and niave and factually challenged.

      “Careful” might be legitimate when you consider that lyin’ Ryan will lie his way through any debate. The Romney/Ryan campaign has already openly stated they don’t care about the truth. It’s particularly tricky to deal with somebody who will out-right lie without any reservations. Since most people don’t think another person will go that far, they are disinclined to believe the person is lying to that extent.

      It was the underlying basis of Goebbel’s “big lie” philosophy. You can’t tell a small lie and easily get away with it because people are willing to believe that somebody would tell a small lie. However if you tell a huge enough lie, people are disinclined to believe anyone would tell a lie that big so they think there must be some truth in it.

  • This poll has an extraordinary bias built into the question. Paul Ryan, being older than 35, and American citizen, and having some political experience is technically qualified to be president. But then, so are most older American citizens. What he poll should ask is, “Would Paul Ryan make a good leader and president?” And the answer to that is no, he is too far out of touch with most of the American polulace.

    • Hell No He Not Out Of Touch None Of Them Are, It’s The Fact They Just Don’t Give A Damn!! The Don’t Care About America Nor The 95% Middle Class, Working Poor, Disable And The Poor!! All They Care About Is Control, Power And Money And It’s Money Is Their Whole Agenda!! They Are Not Christians Nor Are They Patriots, What They Are Is Racist Terrorists Traitors To Their Country, President And The American People!!

      • Smeagel4T

        Don’t hold back. Tell us what you really think. 🙂

  • what a joke

  • ayayaboy

    The guy Ryan is simply a shameless liar. I don’t like liars.

  • Polygamyman

    THE TRUTH IS OUT..ROMNEY IS AFRAID OF THE CULTIC CONTROL OF THE MORMON CHURCH. HE DID NOT GIVE THEM 10% OF HIS TOTAL INCOME AND THAT WOULD BE GROUNDS FOR CENSURE. HIS CULT IS SO CONTROLLING THAT HE WAS FORCED TO WEAR HIS MAGIC MORMON UNDERWEAR AND THE ITCH AFFECTED HIS PITCH.

  • Polygamyman

    I AM SHOCKED THAT ROMNEYS ANTI ISRAEL STANCE HAS NOT BEEN WIDELY REPORTED.HE HAS BEEN BRAINWASHED BY HIS CHURCH TO BELIEVE THAT THE NEW JERUSALEM WILL NOT BE ESTABLISHED IN ISRAEL BUT IN THE USA. THIS WAS BASED AS A RESULT OF A VISIT BY ELIJAH IN THE 1830’s WITH JOSEPH SMITH. ELIJAH TOLD THE LEADER THAT THE NEW JERUSALEM WOULD DEFINITELY ESTABLISHED IN THE USA. IF REPIBLICANS EVER READ MORMONS THREE ADDITIONAL BIBLES (BOOK OF MORMON,THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE AND THE DOCTRINES AND COVENANTS) THEY WOULD DISCOVER THEIR WORLD DOMINATION STRATEGIES. EVERY NON MORMON IS A LEGITIMATE TARGET FOR AGGRESIVE PROSELYTIZING AND CONVERSION. NOW THERE ARE 14.5 MILLION CULT MORMONS. THEY HAVE A SUPERIOR KOOLAID THAN THE JIM JONES VARIETY AND A MORE OBEDIENT SET OF FOLLOWERS. ROMNEY CANT DISTINQUISH BETWEEN HIS MORMON CULTIC CONTROLS AND THE RIGHTS OF A PLURALISTIC SOCIETY. IN THE LIGHT OF ROMNEYS IMBALANCE RON PAUL IS A REFRESHING PIED PIPER

  • Have lived in Wis. all my life.I can’t believe these Creep’s come from my state.(Ryan,Walker,Preibus,Thompson,Johnson)We are Badgers not Leeches.Please someone take these BLOODSUCKERS away from my beautiful state.Maybe Mars!!!!

  • People like Ryan that want to make it harder to vote can’t be that hard to debate, after all, this is America, like Clinton said to a college group, we are supposed to be free and should want everyone to vote, unless we let the right wingers dictate new ways they can stack the deck.My daughter in Florida said she has been informed that if she wants to vote, she has to get a new social security card and know the social security number of her dad and her mother. This of course will cause problems with people with families that many have never seen their father or mother. Another way for Republicans to keep certain people from voting, and this is America? The men don’t have to do this, I guess Reepublicans think they have the men vote already in the bag. Ryan can always say, Ilove you mom, Ilove yomom, I love you mom, that with the rigging of our voting system they are trying to do, just might win it for them if it’s that close of an election. I think their should be an ethics investagation regarding these new rules that Republicans are trying to slip in our voting system.

  • foxburgh

    Obama was but 14 years old when vietnam ended , some one wanted to know why he didn’t serve. By the way, has Romney or his boys ever in the service, don’t think so.

    • foxburgh

      Obama was but 14 years old when Vietnam ended, as some one posted, as wy he didnt serve.By the way , has Romney or his boys ever served in the military.don’t think so.

  • foxburgh

    Wait till they eleminate Medicare, and you receive a check for $6500 to purchase your own insurance, see how many Insurance companies come knocking at your door to sell you a policy.You think they ,will pick up the tab for a five or six figure hospital bill, because they are there to serve you, I think not.

  • Sheila

    The only hope for our country moving forward is President Barack Obama & a Democratic majority. Thus far most if not all of what Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan have said are untruths. Buying elections is just wrong, suppressing the VOTE is wrong, and waging a WAR on Women is just Stupid.

  • Ford Truck

    Is he qualified? No! But then George W Bush was elected, so unfortunately there are some idiots who think shit-for-brains people like that are qualified! Lets hope this latest round of un-American Republicanism will educate voters!!
