    The same goes for both sides. Obama said that raising the debt ceiling was irresponsible, yet now he's signing off on them. It's all about political expediency.

    Get out of the middle east and put all that money into our economy.

    I agree completely, but you know that's not what will happen. They'll start by kicking people out of the military and closing domestic bases.

    Do you really need such a huge military though?
    Honest question.

    Clearly Romney hasn’t even been briefed as to Ryan’s positions, statements, and voting record.

    The Romney campaign is a mess.

    Imagine the disaster he’d be as president.

    It’s not only hypocrisy, but incompetence.

    No big deal, Romney'll just change his position again.
    Nothing to get in a sweat about.

    Is that a crisis in the radical democrat mind? Democrats kicked their former V.P. out of the freaking party for being too moderate.

    The Romney people have shown themselves to be not one iota better at vetting a VP candidate than McCain's nattering nabobs of negativism were.


    Ryan said that “almost 44,000 jobs” are at stake if the cuts go through, breaking with his usual small-government argument that federal spending does not spur employment.

    Despite Ryan’s new attack, he not only voted for the bill containing the cuts, he went out of his way to tout just how difficult it is to undo them.

    “What conservatives like me have been fighting for, for years, are statutory caps on spending, legal caps in law that says government agencies cannot spend over a set amount of money,” Ryan told FOX News’s Sean Hannity shortly after the agreement was reached last August. “And if they breach that amount across the board, sequester comes in to cut that spending, and you can’t turn that off without a super-majority vote. We got that in law.” ~ Paul Ryan, August 2011
