Post VP debate: everything you need to know

Post VP debate: everything you need to know
Posted on October 11, 2012

After the debate ended, Republicans were calling it a draw and Democrats were calling it a strong win for Biden. That tells you all you need to know. — Josh Marshall, TPM Editor’s Blog

Biden says Romney revealed true self with '47 percent' remarks
By Peter Schroeder - 10/11/12 09:53 PM ET

Vice President Biden swung hard at Mitt Romney's secretly recorded remarks that 47 percent of Americans do not take personal responsibility for their lives.

President Obama was criticized by Democrats for failing to mention the remarks, which Romney made at a private fundraiser earlier this year, in last week's presidential debates.

But Biden pounced Thursday night during his vice presidential debate with GOP running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), using the comments to paint Romney as a candidate more interested in helping the nation's wealthy than the middle class.

"It shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47 percent of the American people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives," he said.

BIDEN to Ryan's BS: “That is a bunch of malarkey--“Not a single thing he said is accurate,”

DANVILLE, Ky. — At odds early and often, Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan squabbled over the economy, taxes, Medicare and more Thursday night in a contentious, interruption-filled debate. “That is a bunch of malarkey,” the vice president retorted after a particularly tough Ryan attack on the administration’s foreign policy.

“Not a single thing he said is accurate,” Democrat Biden declared after Ryan said U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens had been denied sufficient security by administration officials. Stevens died in a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

Ryan Aide: Photos ‘Poor Judgment’

Ryan Aide: Photos ‘Poor Judgment’

The only “poor judgment” was keeping those weapons of mass destruction hidden for so long, am I right?! Paul Ryan’s aide isn’t too pleased that Time magazine published pictures of the candidate wearing a red baseball hat, curling dumbbells, and seemingly channeling Saved by the Bell’s Zack Morris and every generic self-shot MySpace picture of the early 2000s. The photos were taken for Time’s “Person of the Year” issue, and the magazine said that it never promised the photos wouldn’t be published. But are those rippling biceps strong enough to knock out Biden?


Just another FoxNews brainwashed Repuke: “He’s a communist & those of us not voting for him-know it”

While talking to a woman about why she supports President Obama for his health care policy, Chris Matthews heard another woman shout “Communist!” and sought her out.

“What did you mean by that?” Matthews asked the lady.

“All you have to do is study it out. Just study it out. And you’ll see,” she said. “You haven’t done your homework, buddy,” she then accused of Matthews.

“What do I need to study?” he asked.

“He’s a communist,” she replied, “and those of us who are not voting for him know it.”

“And what do you mean by ‘communist’?” Matthews then asked.

“You don’t know?”

“Just tell me. Help me out here.”

“You don’t know?” she said again.

“I just want to know what you mean,” Matthews pressed.

“Oh, I know what I mean,” she shot back.

“Well, help us out. You’re on national television,” the host said. He then asked her if she believes the president is an American.

“No,” she flatly said. “Just because he was born here doesn’t mean he thinks like us.”

“He’s a communist, buddy,” she concluded as the crowd booed.


Florida governor accidentally gives out phone sex line number for meningitis hotline

Source: Independent UK

Florida Governor Rick Scott was embarrassed this week after accidentally giving out the number for a phone sex line telling concerned Floridians that it was a meningitis hotline.

The mistake came during a cabinet meeting on Tuesday when Mr Scott gave out the number - which he said was the toll-free help line.

However, Florida residents who rang the number were greeted with a recording of a woman's voice saying: "Hello boys, thank you for calling me on my anniversary."

The Governor's office was alerted by a public radio station in Tampa, WUSF, which was monitoring the cabinet meeting and posted the number on its website.
