Mikey1969: Who decided to run Droopy Dog for VP, anyway?


Al Gore.

Paul Ryan should really never speak. People thought he was smart until he started doing that.

Al Gore, but that's not important right now. We're making fun of Paul Ryan.

So let's imagine this, Paul. Let's imagine that there was a small group of people who were planning on rigging the odds of NFL games, to destroy the game's credibility. And that there were repeated warnings about it. And let's assume that, rather than go after this group, the NFL commissioner filed a billion dollar law suit against, oh I don't know, the NBA, or the Girl Scouts Association, or the Ladies Auxiliary of the Methodist Church in Ames, Iowa. It doesn't matter, so long as you understand that the lawsuit was filed against an organization that was not in any way a threat to the NFL.

Also, teams were allowed to make ridiculously crazy speculative investments on the prospective NFL talents of 8-year-olds, and so suddenly almost every team was on the verge of bankruptcy. (The success of the rigged-betting cabal didn't exactly help.)

And the NFL commissioner declared that this was all the fault of Jackie Robinson, who had set up a system that led inevitably to teams giving money to black players that they didn't deserve. And that anyone who questioned any of his decisions, or motives, hated football, hated the NFL.

And to this day, the commissioner insists that the NBA/Girl Scouts Association/Ladies Auxiliary was the real threat.

Now we have a working historic parallel.

"You guys watch that episode of Breaking Bad last night? I mean, give me a break," Ryan said. "You know what it reminds me of -- President Obama and the economy. If you can't get it right, it's time to get out."

If MD Jennings would have batted the ball down like you are supposed to when defending a Hail Mary pass rather than try to pad his stats with an interception, the blown call would be a non-issue,

Bf+: So now both Walker and Ryan announced their support for unions.


As long as they don't get uppity. And speaking of uppity....

HotWingConspiracy: rudemix: "You guys watch that Packer game last night? I mean, give me a break," Ryan said

They showed this on the local news last night. A small clip with this part. I don't recall if I ever heard a more forced and mechanical sounding attempt at being spontaneous and part of the gang. He sounded like a really shiatty comedian trying to sound like he's relatable and in on the joke, not the joke itself.

Better him than Romney.

[www.inquisitr.com image 600x345]

Did you witness the local sports team contest? I'm astounded the on-field constabulary issued such a whimsical judgement! It reminds me of myself from a few years ago.


Romney's opinion on the matter was only slightly more wooden.

"Commence laughter program. Initiate 'common man' sequence 7.987B. Commence laughter program. Initiate scenario restatement module. Commence laughter program. End sequence. Power down."

The5thElement: Sorry Paul. You gave up your Packer fan card when you got photographed waving the Terrible Towel. Campaign or not, no true Packer fan would ever do that.


I suppose it could be worse. If Illinois were a swing state, Ryan would be down here wearing a Bears jersey.

THEN he would not be allowed back into Wisconsin ever again.

I'm a Packers fan - The one bad call did not lose that game. The Packer's Offensive Line not showing up the first half lost that game. The replacement refs need to go, yes, but as far as I'm concerned the Packers should have had at least 20 points on the Seahawks by the time that call was made.

Look at that picture of Ryan accompanying TFA, if anyone looked 13 seconds from eating a 12-gauge, it's Ryan...
 
2012-09-26 01:58:36 PM
Ryan has no morals, he is just a political opportunist and like Mitt he will say anything to get elected......unlike Mitt he is at least human so he tends to be able to go with the winning side.

Have you seen this new show on NBC, Revolution? All the power goes out and civilization collapses. And you know what it reminds me of? President Obama and the economy. - Paul Ryan


Off topic:

Is that show based off of the Novels of the Change series (Dies the Fire)? Or is it just the same idea, different take?

Carn: I saw on the Discovery one time a hippopotamus fought with a lion over a dead baby hippo. The lion pride eventually got the dead hippo but not before an adult hippo literally ripped one of the adult lion's lower face off and it wandered off to die. You know what that reminds me of? President Obama and the economy. If you can't get it right, it's time to get out. - Paul Ryan.

/I seriously saw this.
//The lion went over to try to get a drink but couldn't cuz it's freaking face was ruined. Nature is cruel.
///Later in the show a baby hippo got caught between two adults fighting, was gored, and bled to death.

It was kinda dusty in here when I watched, too. Awesome show but I can't find it. I remember it centered on a particular part of a river or watershed in Africa.

Oh, that's not exactly true. He continues to treat republicans like adults despite all evidence to the contrary. That's pretty bad.


Agreed. I would put the following as Obama's failings:

1) Failure to convict and imprison all those involved in pushing for the fake Iraq War and related war crimes
2) Failure to disassemble NDAA and most parts of the PATRIOT Act
3) Failure to stand firm on single payer or universal health care (this one was hard, admittedly)
4) Failure to properly punish BP for gulf oil spill
5) Failure to go after the Banksters on Wall Street. I believe the window of opportunity has closed by now

All these failures are due to Obama leaning to far to the right, appeasing the GOPs who he should have bi*chslapped and c*ckpunched.

Seriously, every time a Barton or a Walsh or an Allen West make some ridiculous remarks, Obama should have physically beat the living tar out of guys. Do it five or six times, maybe they'll learn their place.
