BYW. Why does Obama think he needs NATO to intervene in Syria just because it might use chemical weapons on its own people? Did America do so in Iraq or the Soviet Union when they did so. I think not.
He has to follow both the UN and NATO treaties.

It's not really that funny. I do get the point that he is trying to make, but going after the fitness angle just makes him look quite sad and pathetic. It makes it even worse when it should be incredibly easy to go after Ryan's tenure as a legislator.

That's trivial compared to some of the lies that some right wing media outlets have created and put on the air about Barack Obama. What Sharpton aired is hardly any thing to get bent out of shape over. It's based on factual information.

People were making the same threat four years ago that if Obama won they were gonna split from the Union. There were petitions and online groups calling for it. Load of BS. They have no army and would be up **** creek in a hurry if they actually did any of this nonsense they threaten to do. Just a bunch of pissed off spoiled children kicking and screaming because they arent getting their way. They wanna leave the Union they can hop on the first plane whereever and they can really
see just how well they have it here.

Just because one side does it doesn't mean that when the other side does it makes it right, or even okay.

I think it shows a common pattern with Ryan that he isn't that honest. Why exactly would he lie about marathon times is beyond me

The problem is Ryan was presented as some guy who is a straight shooter who would talk about real issues and now he's basically been declawed into a Romney Clone.

The marathon thing in itself may not be terrible, but when you factor he just gave a speech that was seen by millions of people that many people pointed out was full of holes it just adds to his marathon of lieing.

Nice sound byte.

hahahahahaha oh my. Ed Shultz's fat butt couldn't run a 10 hour marathon.

WHO CARES? If you want to talk about lies...look no further than the commander in chief. But lets worry about Paul Ryan's self professed marathon time.

Agreed, who the hell cares if Ryan lied about his marathon time, or Obama and Romney's high school grades?

We're in a recession, if you haven't noticed. Just maybe we should focus on what the candidates plan to do about that.

They don't have any. They plan to use the same geniuses in Congress who fail time and again. That's the joke and punch line.

You mean there is a plan? We cant be talking about Romney and Obama cause last I checked they dont have a plan. Least not one that will actually work. Im still baffled why a country, nay, a world full of economists our government cant pool the resources and come up with a workable plan.

Politically, it makes no sense to be specific. Being specific opens you up to attacks. That's one of the reasons why I went with the "most boring" theory, the least offensive guy taking it home. This theory was more relevant since last time exciting was "Sarah Palin". Romney was technically the next most boring to Z-Paw.

But Romney's Ryan selection threw me off. I was betting Z-Paw & Portman, but lost on 2 out of 3 odds. But it was close.
