What's your reaction to the vice presidential debate held Thursday night? What were the strong points made by each candidate? What were the highlights of the debate? Who do you think won, if either? Why?

You can write me in, gdiafante. At least you'll know I'm Constitutionally eligible.

For me there is a clear cut candidate and it is not Romney. Obama has not done all that he has promised, but I don't think that is all is fault. He biggest problem has been that he is too nice. He need to bloody the Republicans nose now and then.

Ryan is just like Romney! He's gonna do, he just can't tell HOW he is gonna do it.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/12/12 at 8:11

Congress has blocked the way on a lot of the things he has wanted to accomplish then they rant that he has failed. What a bunch of a$$hats.

By: yogiman on 10/12/12 at 8:12

Well, bfra, I'm still waiting for Barry and Biden to tell us what they are going to do. I guess they haven't figured it out yet, huh?

It would be great if they could tell us what they've did, don't you think? That is, except for spending more money. But they don't have to tell us that, we've seen it.

Old Sheriff Roy was a bad ass sheriff. He was so bad that he locked his idiot son in the closet, because he was an embarrassment to him. Hate is wife for birthing such a freak.

Nemo - You are on the right track!

By: Captain Nemo on 10/12/12 at 8:21

Remember that the GOP’s only goal this term has been to bring down President Obama, no matter the cost to the country.

There are people that make mistakes in life and learn from these mistakes.

There are people that repeat their mistakes in life and are doomed to live in a world of despair.

There will always be simpletons that can never get things right in life and live in a world of lies.

Having HOPE that I'd hear more on Obama's Plans for America's Future, if He were to be re-elected, A TERRIBLE Dis-Appointment for America. More of the same, and a DEFENSE ORIENTED ATTITUDE in most commenting, plus many interruptions in order to By-Pass the REAL FACTS for Americans, by Biden. Turned out to be a bigger distraction for the Democratic Party than Biden will ever be able to understand.
Obama, elected in 2008 with ZERO experience, very little overall knowledge, plus Corporate Dollars, has PROVED over the past three plus years that obama's knowledge growth is centered around the Corporate World's WELFARE and WELL BEING FIRST and FOREMOST.
EXPERIENCE, Obama can: #1. Spend America's TAX DOLLARS at WII. #2. Cater and HAND-OUT the TAX PAYERS DOLLARS to REWARD Corporate FAILURES. #3. Obama has ADDED TOO America's DEBT CRISIS AT HIS WILL. #4. Fought for Corporate Interest over that of the American People. #5. Made several comments that "HE" is making the decisions and the American People will JUST HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT. He's the Commander-in-Chief and America's People have "NO-SAY" in HIS DECISIONS.
Biden spent the most of last night's "AIR-TIME" agreeing and supporting these and many other Neglects and Failures under Obama's Directions. No Sustance, No Direction, No Plans, JUST MORE OF THE SAME FOR AMERICA!!!

Blanket-

I seem to remember something about old Jr. and three hundred pound woman. I think she lived in the Belmont area. She had some money, (maybe I’m not sure) and paid Jr. to come see her. It been 40 yrs and I’m not sure of all the details, but Jr. did take advantage of her, until some of his acquaints found out and started to hackle him about it.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/12/12 at 8:42

People that post in Caps have a hard time keeping their emotions in check. But I guess it is better for them to do it here, than on the road.

By: gdiafante on 10/12/12 at 8:52

Obama can: #1. Spend America's TAX DOLLARS at WII

Congress controls the purse strings, not the President. Read the Constitution.

Cater and HAND-OUT the TAX PAYERS DOLLARS to REWARD Corporate FAILURES..

I agree. Failure should not be rewarded. Tell me how Romney is going to punish Wall Street. Oh yeah, by reducing regulation and lowering the corporate tax rates. Fail.

Obama has ADDED TOO America's DEBT CRISIS AT HIS WILL.

See the first point, and pay attention: the President can only recommend spending, Congress controls the purse. Get it?

Fought for Corporate Interest over that of the American People.

If you're talking about the bank bailouts, wouldn't it be in the interest of the American people to not have the financial sector completely collapse? And did you not get the memo about financial reform? See the Dodd-Frank Act.

Made several comments that "HE" is making the decisions and the American People will JUST HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT. He's the Commander-in-Chief and America's People have "NO-SAY" in HIS DECISIONS.

Source, please?

Anyone else get the sense that is a chain email?

By: bfra on 10/12/12 at 8:52

The shouter pretty well sums up his own comment at the end, NO substance, NO direction & NO plan.

By: budlight on 10/12/12 at 8:53

Well, Biden sure has my vote; after that debate, I'm probably going to vote democrat! Gee, I am happy that I can now get my bus load of free stuff. I'm on board. Time to rake it all in!

While I will agree that neither canadate is clearly the best choice, your fooling yourself if you think Romney/Ryan is going to do squat differently.

1.) They have no plan and are not even giving a HINT of a detail of what they plan to do. Their entire platform is: We are gonna do this...trust us!
2.) If you think what Ryan said was truthful...I've got a bridge to sell you. The only jobs Romney/Ryan create are fact checkers...en masse.

I'd rather vote for the guy that says he's not gonna raise my taxes and not impose his religous value on the people he repreresents than the guys that wont tell me how they plan on reaching their goals and flip flopping every other day.

By: gdiafante on 10/12/12 at 9:09

I'd rather have the guy who's going to lead and be honest. I want him to tell me that if we want out of this, we're all going to have to feel the pain.

Yep, you guessed it, that man doesn't exist.

sigh

I "git it", gdiafante. Congress is our deciding banker that makes the decision on where our money is spent. And they are what scares me more than Barry alone. He's just one man. Congress is the "control unit" but they're playing "follow the leader" too damn much and too damn faithfully without asking for explications.

Have they asked him a question on an issue yet? Have they asked for an explanation on any issue yet? All I've heard from congress to Obama is "yes sir" and "no sir".

Think as you wish, gdiafante, but the fact Obama isn't legally eligible for that office and congress has not questioned him or brought him in for questioning is scarey.

In 2008, I questioned Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker why they question John McCain but didn't question Barack Obama. No answer from Corker, but Alexander answered me by stating they had "checked" Obama and he was eligible. I wrote back asking him where they got their information and why it hadn't been forwarded to the general public that wanted to know. Surprise, surprise, no answer... because he didn't have one.

Alexander does usually answer my questions.

Nemo, sounds like Jr. is a real class act, huh?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/12/12 at 10:28

g, that certainly looked like a troll cut and paste job to me.

Wouldn't put it past him, blanket. It's not like he hasn't done that with those crazy, conspiracist chain emails before.

By: yogiman on 10/12/12 at 11:33

There's a major difference between Barry and Biden and Romney and Ryan, jvh2b. Romeny and Ryan will be in the office legally. Biden is also, but Barry isn't and that makes a huge difference.

What do you think is going to happen to this nation when all of this "crap" comes out? It ain't gonna be pretty and I doubt if you'll laugh about it.

yeah, g. I love the part where a troll says his "brother" or "cousin" told him rather than just stating that it's a chain email - lol!

Hey, I found pics of Raspy's last wine tasting party.

Blanket - Was that Raspy in the picture pinned to the wall? LOL

By: bfra on 10/12/12 at 1:29

Blanket - I got a kick out of the troll's comment that land in TN, west of the TN River was flat. The kook doesn't know that the hilly few acres he live on is west of the Big Tennessee River.

Blanket - Are you sure? He was missing his well worn, grey poupon stained, black ascot? Maybe he was dressed down for that event. :-)

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/12/12 at 1:44

You may be correct. Perhaps that pic was from earlier in the evening.

By: bfra on 10/12/12 at 1:46

LOL Blanket - He is probably about to change his depends.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/12/12 at 1:49

Well, HOPEFULLY he is changing them regularly or hoping that his caregiver shows up some day soon.
