Ryan is going to destroy Vice President Biden in the VP Debates

Last edited Thu Oct 11, 2012, 10:53 PM - Edit history (2)

< Edit On Aug 22 the great events were forseeen in a great vision. Again DU is ahead of the rest.

Not for the satirically impaired>

Paul Ryan is the wonkiest wonkmeisterly Congressman to have ever gone to Congress. He has the entire US budget memorized for the last 10 years. He communicates extremely well and absolutely mesmerizes college faculty's and administrations. Nobel scientists ask him to check their equations before they write their thesis and then ask him to edit the thesis for clarity.

Paul Ryan has never lost a debate.

When he enters the Congressional Republican Caucus all of the members quickly stand and move their chairs aside with a Moses like parting of the room so that he can go to the front of the room unimpeded. They quickly take out pen and paper so that they can write down every word in an operational redundancy should their personal recording devices fail.

Paul Ryan has never lost a debate

He has won every debate he has ever entered. He is bold, brave and has a broad vision. He never prevaricates, dithers or contradicts himself. He is consistent, clear and concise. He is equally familiar with St. Paul, Thomas Aquinas and that atheist broad.

Vice President Joe Biden is just a good old hard working fun guy.

It will be a complete and total victory by Ryan. He is the sacred chalice of the future conservative movement. He is the next Ronald Reagan. Republicans will vote for Romney because they know that Ryan will persuade Romney to take all the right right right right choices.

Paul Ryan has never lost a debate.

In future years Italian composers will write Operas about Ryan's great victory. Anthems will be written and City block murals etched capturing all of the details. A comic book series and an IKEA foot stool will be created to mark it. Paul and Ryan will become the number 1 and 2 names for baby boys starting in 2013.

There are simply not enough adjectives that I could use to push up the bar to the height that Paul Ryan should have to jump over to win this debate.

63. The art of debate is presentation.

For a gullible public , it does not mean those facts won't pass a fact check.. As already has been the case with Ryan's
Road Map
with the fact checkers.. Ryan does not know crap.. He just memorizes unproven lies..
Biden is being coached by the ranking member of of Ryan's Budget committee. Rep. Chris Van Hollen .
Let's just hope Van Hollen is as good as Ryan and Biden can memorize his lines well. Let's all tell Rep. Van Hollen, do your homework when playing con man, Paul Ryan..

6. Diminished expectations

Very wise.

Have the public expecting nothing but pearls of wisdom to fall from Ryan's lips, and then anything short of that will be failure.

Have the public expecting Biden to fall on his face, pass gas, and utter a few-dozen hand-palm gaffes, with anything performance better than that being an unqualified success.

He will make Ryan look like a child that has silly ideas, and Ryan will help him do it.

If Ryan supported MCC but wants to cut aid in areas where and how and what will be the impact? What will the second term Obama Administration do to US aid policy? Will it merge AID and MCC? Will it improve foregin assistance transparency?

65. He may not have lost any debate, however

with the difference of views (his and Mittens), he'll be in a tailspin trying to remember what he actually stands for. Mittens has already made him change his views on several subjects, especially abortion. The crap going on in Ryans head must be mind boggling. I stand for this,,,, no wait, Mittens doesn't, and I have to support this idiot. I suspect Biden will smoke his ass in the debates, and wouldn't miss it for the world.

70. I apologize that I misunderstood your post

The fine art of irony escapes me at times, particularly on a website whose threads typically leave little room for ambiguity. Sometimes a strategically placed smiley can be very helpful.

78. Does the VP debate really matter? The top of the ticket is what counts. Anyway, I think what will

happen.

I think Romney will order Ryan not to get specific on any issue or they will lose.
I expect a lot of weaving and bobbing from Ryan.

I think Ryan will try to find an unexpected lie or statement, to confuse/confound Biden.
I think, a few days after the debate the fact checkers will call Ryan's lie, pants on fire.

I actually expect Ryan to try to rattle Biden, to make Biden look not presidential.

I don't think what the fact checkers say will matter.
Fox News will report what happened in the debate, not what the fact checkers say.

I don't think the VP debate really matters.

Obama must tell everyone about Ryan's voucher plans; that will scare the elderly.
Romney/Ryan's war on women is receiving publicity.
Romney's views on education will excite the young college student (not!).
Minorities aren't going to be very happy with Romney/Ryan either.

There will be four groups voting for Romney/Ryan...can't get away from that.
The Tea Party will not listen to anything they disagree with.
The Christian Right has made up their minds.
The wealthy see Romney/Ryan as a chance for even less taxes and less regulation.
And finally, there is a group of people who vote Republican no matter what.

Edited to add, I forgot Ron Paul and the Libertarians. I expect them to vote Republican.

Maybe they won't. The Republican might alienate Ron Paul and the Libertarians.
They won't vote for Obama. Maybe they will decide not to vote.

Maybe the Christian Right will decide not to vote if Todd Akin isn't forgiven.
Maybe the Tea Party will decide not to vote for Mr. Etch-a-Sketch.

Maybe...maybe...maybe. too many maybes.

87. So why has Ryan been coming across as an idiot?

>>> Oh gee, we have a great plan but I haven't quite crunched those budget numbers yet.

>>> Rape is just another way for conception to happen.

>>> I'm proud of my pro-life record, but if Top o' Ticket Mitt wants to be wishy-washy, then who am I to object?

Soooooo...

For the VP and most any other debate, one liners will ultimately take the day, not which candidate can best manipulate an Excel spreadsheet. Look for a number of questions not lending themselves to wonkish answers, for "walk a fine line" Ryan to be stepping all over himself as he has already done, and for Joe to have those zingers ready.

89. I'm sorry that you have...

obviously suffered a severe head injury...

I've read and admired your work for a long time, and -- barring traumatic brain injury -- can only surmise that you must have hit the lottery and were suddenly 'turned' by the prospect of paying fair taxes on your 'hard-earned' booty.

That Eddie Munster-looking, voucher-toting, senior citizen-eating piece of s*** will get his ass handed to him by Vice President Biden.

The only accurate thing you said is that there will be a comic book -- that would be the only appropriate place to explain to the public what Ryan is all about...

And the Ikea commemorative will be a toilet -- not a footstool!

Ryan is such bad news that I was in favor of gay marriage until I realized that there are otherwise good and decent men out there -- like Grover Norquist and Ralph Reed -- who, if permitted, would marry him...
