    The Dilemma that is Paul Ryan.

    After listening to him explain economic theory it's really difficult for anyone to sound intelligent.

    It's clear why Obama chose Joe Biden. He gave Obama instant credibility and after listening to Biden give a speech it makes Obama sound intelligent. Obama would never have a running-mate that shows him up. This is why I feel Obama would never drop him and pick up Hillary unless he knew he was gonna lose and he had no choice.



    Here is a video where Ryan takes Obama apart in 6 mins. It's clear Obama hasn't a clue what he's talking about........and his only response isn't to give an answer but hand it off to somebody else. It's classic:

    Obama's only chance is to tell seniors lies about how Ryan wants to end Medicare. We can call it Obamascare. The truth is against him and he knows it. His only hope is apathy and misinformation.

    Ryan is a very convincing con man.

    Obama hopes people don't notice because they're bad at math. Smart people understand Ryan. OThers are Democrats.
    The Dems' only hope is to re-run nasty commercials filled with lies and distortions. I predicted this was the nastiest campaign we have ever seen. And Team Obama has not disappointed so far.

    Paul Ryan actually has a degree in Economics (not Law). Maybe, just maybe, he's got a more realistic perspective about things economic than some Harvard Law adjunct. I'm more than willing to give him a chance to influence policy.

    To quote NPR.....All things considered.....I don't think you're a good judge of who is conning whom.

    Fact is economics deals with facts.

    Lawyers tend to deal with opinion and also tend to give a false impression of the facts.

    As a well known Democrat once said it's about the economy stupid well we finally have someone on a ticket who actually understands the economy. Best of luck Paul Ryan.

    You assume everyone is as dishonest as Obama......that's not a very good endorsement of your man.

    And to answer your question......do your own homework.
