Subby, if you were reading a food critic's article, and he was talking about how bad the food was at such-and-such restaurant, and then you came to find out that he had never even been in that restaurant but was only critiquing it one what he'd head, would you trust his critique?

No, of course you wouldn't. I can tell, because from your headline I see you're a smart person.

So let me ask you this: if a man who wanted to fix America and thought that the Stimulus was bad didn't at least try the Stimulus out before he decided against it -- I mean sample its flavors and swish its body around on his tongue, kick the tires and take it out for a bit of a test drive to see what it could really do -- would you have any reason to trust his analysis?

Of course not. And you're welcome.

Somacandra: MeinRS6: Since the VP doesn't do anything in our system, I'm not sure how much confidence you need to have in him in the first place.

[upload.wikimedia.org image 220x293]

His Constitutional obligations as President of the Senate notwithstanding, the lesson of recent years is that the Vice-President has as much power as the President wants him/her to have. So I don't find your evaluation comforting. At a minimum he has the power to shoot a man in the face with a shotgun and then make the guy apologize for being shot. I'd wager that's quite a feat. Any evaluation of a President must include the one person in the entire world s/he has picked to stand in if necessary.

I think "Gallop" would be the perfect name for that organization. They need this to be a horse-race, and it isn't a horse-race if one of the horses stumbles out of the gate half-drunk with two tranq darts in its ass. They are being absurdly generous to the Romney campaign in order to make the polls come out 50/50.

Since the VP doesn't do anything in our system, I'm not sure how much confidence you need to have in him in the first place. I guess you need to have confidence that he can make it thru a state funeral without any big disasters. If Biden can do it, I'm pretty sure that anyone can.

Anyway, my comment was more about how this won't change a single vote.

Because there's no way the VP could, you know, become president on any given day.

Besides, the VP is in charge of the senate. I know this because your last VP candidate said so.

Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, "What does the Vice President do?"

PALIN: That's something that Piper would ask me! ... [T]hey're in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

doyner: RexTalionis: "After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled," Ryan said in a statement. "This is why I didn't recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that.

Have you noticed that when asked about his earlier request, Ryan didn't take responsibility for telling an untruth, but rather he took responsibility for actually making the requests in the first place?

What I noticed was that he didn't know what the fark was going on in his office with respect to a major political topic in which he was a key player.


He was too busy reading and deciding he didn't agree whatever the flavor of the day was and the flavor was stimulus, sweet stimulus....

"Regardless, it's clear that the Obama stimulus did nothing to stimulate the economy, and now the President is asking to do it all over again."

No, absolutely nothing. The unemployment rate is still in double figures. We have had negative job growth every month that Obama has been president. The stock market has crashed several times recently. GM went bankrupt and doesn't exist any more.

Oh how I long for the days of Bush's economic prosperity.

Weaver95: After repeated denials, Paul Ryan has admitted he requested stimulus cash even after sharply criticizing the program

so...he requested stimulus money, KNEW he requested stimulus money even though it went against his Ayn Randian beliefs. Then he gets up in front of everyone and says that 'stimulus money is bad'. However...that's not enough. When called out on his using stimulus money...he denies it. KNOWING that accurate records are kept as to who asks for those funds and how much gets paid out. Not until someone rubs his gotdamn nose in it does Ryan finally admit that yeah, he took stimulus cash and was apparently quite happy to do so.

This is how Romney/Ryan would govern this country.


And he criticizes Obama for $700 million reduction in Medicare while simultaneously including the same cuts in his own budget and then justifies it by saying, "Well, the President did it first."

Inaccurate.

Maybe. A VP still does something sometimes. It ain't much, overall, maybe. But the office has functions. Therefore, "doesn't do anything" is inaccurate. Neener.
