Does ANYONE Remember how rude Romney was?

Remember how rude Romney was? Interrupting, speaking over everyone, steamrolling both moderator and Obama? Doing whatever the fuck he wanted and ignoring anybody who tried to pull him back in?



Body language: when you lie, your mouth gets dry

It’s a pretty standard tell.

Last night, this happened again, again and again...

Heh "I just got my ass kicked by a 69 year old man".

MORE JOE: "And by the way, they talk about this Great Recession as if it fell out of the sky"

VP:And by the way, they talk about this Great Recession as if it fell out of the sky, like, oh my goodness, where did it come from? It came from this man voting to put two wars in a credit card, to at the same time put a prescription drug benefit on the credit card, a trillion- dollar tax cut for a—very wealthy. I was there. I voted against him. I said, no, we can’t afford that. And now all of a sudden these guys are so seized with a concern about the debt that they created.

The Moment Our VP Made Me & Mr. Pete-Beam With Pride

BIDEN: And I love my friend here. I — I’m not allowed to show letters but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying, “By the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of Wisconsin?” We sent millions of dollars. You know…

RADDATZ: You did ask for stimulus money, correct?

BIDEN: Sure he did. By the way…

RYAN: On two occasions we — we — we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. That’s what we do. We do that for all constituents who are…

(CROSSTALK) BIDEN: I love that. I love that. This was such a bad program and he writes me a letter saying — writes the Department of Energy a letter saying, “The reason we need this stimulus, it will create growth and jobs.” His words. And now he’s sitting here looking at me.

At Vice-Presidential Debate, Paul Ryan Is Frank About Roe v. Wade Plans
by Michelle Goldberg Oct 12, 2012 2:00 AM EDT

After a week of Team Romney avoiding talk about abortion, his VP pick went ahead and said it: a Republican victory will mean overturning the landmark decision.

Abortion was discussed only briefly during Thursday night’s vice-presidential debate, but the exchange about it was, I think, an important moment, because it drove home the likelihood than a Republican victory in November will mean the end of Roe v. Wade.

Ryan, by contrast, reminded the country that he opposes abortion in all circumstances, and that Romney intends to severely restrict it. “f you believe that life begins at conception … That’s a principle,” he said. “The policy of a Romney administration is to oppose abortion with exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother.” When Raddatz asked him if abortion-rights supporters should fear a Romney administration, he sort of harrumphed, and then responded, “We don’t think that unelected judges should make this decision; that people through their elected representatives in reaching a consensus in society through the democratic process should make this determination.” In other words, they want to overturn Roe.


Guess Who Was NOT Laughing At Last Night's debate?

GOP: Malarkey is serious business and Biden should have shown it more respect

GOP: Malarkey is serious business and Biden should have shown it more respect

Republicans are mad as hell that Joe Biden laughed off Paul Ryan's marathon of mistruths:

Vice President Biden's laughter during the vice presidential debate Thursday night is still the talk of Twitter on Friday morning, and is turning into one of themost memorable aspects of the first and only VP debate this cycle.

Republicans think Biden was disrespectful to the American people and laughed off serious issues during Thursday night's debate with Paul Ryan. The Republican National Committee released a new Web video almost immediately after the debate, and members of Mitt Romney's campaign referred to Biden's reaction shots in most of the post-debate interviews.

"These are very serious issues and I'll let the American people judge Vice President Biden in terms of his facial expressions," senior Romney adviser Ed Gillespie told "Fox & Friends" on Friday. "I thought it was very disrespectful to the American people."

You see, lying isn't a laughing matter. And if you're a Democrat in a nationally televised debate, the only appropriate response to a dishonest opponent is to nod respectfully and thank him for his forthrightness.
