    Can you imagine what would be said about Paul Ryan if he had treated joe the same way joe treated him?

    another FACT
    Barack Obama's presidency has now coincided with four straight $1 trillion-plus annual budget deficits — the first in history and an issue in an election campaign that ends in Nov. 6.
    Obama's Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, contends that Obama failed to achieve a pledge to halve the deficit he inherited by the end of his first term.
    When Obama took office in January 2009, the Congressional Budget Office forecast that the deficit for that year would total $1.2 trillion. It ended up at a record $1.41 trillion.

    This one blew my mind too. Didn't we deliver 2 nukes with a 1940's era plane?

    Isn't a "suitcase" capable of delivering a nuke nowadays?

    Does Iran have nuclear capability, but no planes or suitcases?

    I thought the summaries each gave at the end were interesting. It was obvious Ryan was prepared. Biden looked as if his batteries (or meds) ran out and he wanted to go get a drink.

    Don't know if it is true, but someone said Bidens tactics were Chicago/Boston old school debate style. Make all the facial gestures, laugh, whatever to get the other guy off his game and have the audience looking at you instead of the speaker. He might have accomplished that......but to his detriment.

    He did not make the claim that they didn't have a delivery system, he said that they didn't have a weapon to put it in. He is questioning their ability to build a bomb.

    What I heard was... it was not at all about security personnel. It was about what the State Dept wants to spend or does spend on buildings and compounds. To make them safe? We'd like to see that. To make them plush resorts under the guise of "security"? No.

    What was being cut and why? We need to know how the State Dept has spent its funds before we can make a judgment call on why there was that vote.

    If they have acquired the technology to enrich uranium, they couldn't find someone to help them build a bomb?

    One of Biden's more obvious "whoppers" ... off by a whole LOT on the relative size of Libya v. Syria; off by a factor of 45? ... from Washington Free Beacon ...
    During Thursday’s vice presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden claimed Syria is five times the size of Libya, but in reality it is not.

    Syria has an area of 185,180 square kilometers, while Libya has an area of more than 1.7 million square kilometers, making Libya literally nine times larger than Syria, according to the Central Intelligence Agency.
