    The left can't focus on issues so the conversation is diverted. But I have no problem talking about Ryan. I honestly wish he was at the top of the ticket

    Probably because their presidential candidates are so appallingly bad. Or in McCain's case, probably insurance that nobody would try to assassinate him, because to replace him with Palin would be unthinkable.

    Because they can't defend their own policies or the President's failures. They must attack instead of running on records. And the MSM helps by redirecting the focus to Palin/Ryan. That was easy. :D

    Nice try, asshole.

    You now see Paul Ryan isn't an airhead like Sarah Palin and NOW you don't want to bring up the importance of being VP....because you're a piece of shit.

    If you had to justify John Edwards and Joe Biden wouldn't you want the public to focus on Governor Palin and Paul Ryan instead?

    Whatever it takes to get the idiotic public's attention span away from Barry Soetoro's failed Presidency.

    Liberals are always trying to find new ways to win the election.

    They wanted Palin all over the TV because they felt they could shame her on front of the voters.

    Now they fear Ryan and they want him pushed into a corner and told he is irrelevant in the debates.

    I doubt the news networks are going to run to Ryan like they did wit Palin to give him a spotlight to rip them to pieces. It would be like Sununu ripping that msnbc piece of shit about a month ago over her lies about Romney.
