Charles Pierce – VP Debate 2012: The Real Paul Ryan Is Bad for America

12 Oct

Go read the entire article.

For the second time in as many presidential elections, Joseph Biden got to debate a young, attractive Republican candidate who was demonstrably less qualified to to be president than I am to be chairman of the World Bank. Joseph Biden is a very lucky man. The Great Political Matchmaker in the Sky keeps handing him people who are trying — and failing — to fight above their weight class, and he keeps blowing through what can now legitimately be called the Bum of the Quadrennium Club.  ———————————————–

For years, Paul Ryan has been the shining champion of some really terrible ideas, and of a dystopian vision of the political commonwealth in which the poor starve and the elderly die ghastly, impoverished deaths, while all the essential elements of a permanent American oligarchy were put in place. This has garnered him loving notices from a lot of people who should have known better. The ideas he could explain were bad enough, but the profound ignorance he displayed on Thursday night on a number of important questions, including when and where the United States might wind up going to war next, and his blithe dismissal of any demand that he be specific about where he and his running mate are planning to take the country generally, was so positively terrifying that it calls into question Romney’s judgment for putting this unqualified greenhorn on the ticket at all. Joe Biden laughed at him? Of course, he did. The only other option was to hand him a participation ribbon and take him to Burger King for lunch.

You know what’s the difference between Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan?

      Deep….thoughtful….a lot of insight…..
      Your baby boy got spanked by an old pro.
      Absolutely taken to the woodshed.
      And now, the party of Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reiley and Beck, think that Old Joe was just mean.
      He talked loud, made some faces, and laughed at his stupid statements.
      Which upset conservative baggers because they OWN that type of behavior.
      He shut the wonder boy down in all phases of the game.
      That’s rich…… it really is.

    Big thing – Biden sounded like a warm caring person – Ryan sounded like an accountant at a fortune Goldman Sachs
