So who won the Vice Presidential debate … Paul Ryan 48% – Joe Biden 44%.
With no all due respect to CNN, we won’t call it a draw because if Biden had won your post debate poll, neither would you have. A majority of those polled both said that both candidates did better than they expected; however, by a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself. Maybe that is because Biden spent most of the debate attacking Ryan and interrupting him when Biden was not smirking and laughing. This is also why the Obama-Biden plan back-fired and Ryan won the likability vote over Biden 53% to 43%.
Forty-eight percent of voters who watched the vice presidential debate think that Rep. Paul Ryan won the showdown, according to a CNN/ORC International nationwide poll conducted right after Thursday night’s faceoff. Forty-four percent say that Vice President Joe Biden was victorious. The Republican running mate’s four point advantage among a debate audience that was more Republican than the country as a whole is within the survey’s sampling error.
GOP VP Candidate Paul Ryan Comments on Media Bias …“As a Conservative I’ve Long Believed There’s Inherent Media Bias”
MEDIA BIAS, SAY IT ISN’T SO …
This morning on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, GOP Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan was asked about media bias and whether the MSM was carrying the water for President Barack Obama? I almost expected Ryan to answer by giving a response like, YA THINK, I thought they were part of the Reelect Obama team? Instead, Ryan responded by saying, “As a conservative I’ve long believed there’s inherent media bias”.
“I think it goes without saying that there is definitely media bias. Look I am a Conservative, I am used to media Bias, we expected media bias … As a conservative I’ve long believed there’s inherent media bias. And I think anyone with objectivity would believe that is the case today.” … I think most people in the MSM are left of center and therefore want a very left of center President versus a Conservative President like Mitt Romney.”
Chris Wallace had asked for examples of media bias. Ryan should have said there is not enough time on your show or in the day to provide such details.
VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
Dana Pretzer had a commentary this past week on the “Unprecedented Media Bias” .
Two-dozen conservative activists and media personalities on Tuesday urged members of their respective groups to switch off the “biased news media,” claiming in an open letter that establishment media are “out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda.”
Conservative leaders claim unprecedented media bias this election cycle.
Though these groups frequently complain about a left-leaning media bias, they claimed in the letter that the political slant this cycle is unprecedented.
“In the quarter century since the Media Research Center was established to document liberal media bias, there has never been a more brazen and complete attempt by the liberal so-called ‘news’ media to decide the outcome of an election,” wrote Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, and other conservative leaders.
MSNBC Caught Doctoring Yet Another VIDEO … This Time MSNBC tries to Make Romney Look Bad at Ohio Campaign Stop
Despicable … MSNBC caught doctoring another VIDEO. These people have no shame and obviously no journalistic integrity.
What is up with this pathetic excuse of a media outlet? What do they do all day, photo-shop and doctor audio for their amusement? As reported at The Blaze, this time MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ was caught red-handed doctoring a campaign VIDEO of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in Ohio. MSNBC tried to make it appear that the crowd was chanting for Ryan and Romney was looking to have the crowd chant for him as well. In reality, the crowd was chanting Romney!” Romney. However, Romney was trying to encouraged the crowd to chant “Romney, Ryan” instead. But that would not have fit the vile, in the tank for Obama MSNBC so they made it appear that Romney was looking for profs. But its par for the course at MSNBC, would be the first time they doctored a Romney tape to make him look bad.
Doctored MSNBC video and Joe Scarborough scoffing at Romney. Hey Joe, Remember when you used to have a soul?
The below video is from TownHall displaying the void of journalistic integrity of MSNBC’s Morning Joe alongside the Blaze clip. Um, is anyone actually checking the VIDEO these daya and telling the editing staff to stop altering video and audio to not misrepresent the actual events as they happen? It would appear not.
A clip from a recent Romney/Ryan rally has recently been played over and over at MSNBC highlighting what appears to be an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail for Governor Romney. Originally aired on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” the clip shows Paul Ryan introducing Romney as the MSNBC-added text appears on the screen proclaiming that the crowd is shouting “Ryan!” Romney gets the mic and asks the crowd to say “Romney/Ryan!” Joe Scarborough covers his face and grumbles out the words, “Sweet Jesus.”
Below is a clip from the The Blaze TV’s “Pat & Stu,” show where a listener calls in and busts MSNBC,
Should we expect any less from MSNBC? These are the same people who doctored the George Zimmerman 911 call in the death of Trayvon Martin trying to make it appear that Zimmerman was acting in a racist manner. Of course they claimed it was a mistake, not deliberate. Sure it was MSNBC, since when does anyone edit a 911 call?
The Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton Compares GOPs To Nazi Propaganda Chief Joseph Goebbels (VIDEO)
I guess this is what President Barack Obama was talking about when he referenced civility in politics … Welcome to Obama “Hope and Change” in 2012.
John Burton, the Chairman of the California Democratic Party provided more smear politics yesterday when he compared the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Democrat John Burton took the high road, for Moonbat Democrats, and smeared GOP Vice-Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan for “lying” about the Janesville GM Plant, even though Paul Ryan was not lying.
The Chairman of the California Democratic Party already had political pundits, delegates and rivals buzzing a day before the Democratic National Convention formally opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, after telling KCBS Radio exclusively that Republican tactics had been akin to Nazi propaganda.
“They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie,” Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton told KCBS Monday in Charlotte. “As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeating it, you know.”
LISTEN TO A DEMOCRAT LOON IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Really? The DNC Convention has just begun and we have Democrats acting with such vile behavior. But should it really come as a surprise to the Republican party? As alliterated at Powerline, put a bunch for freaks together in one place and you get a freak show. Mitt Romney has been called in political ads, by Democrat pundits and surrogates of Obama a felon, a tax cheat, and a murderer. One would naturally think that being compared to a Nazi was right up their ally.
UPDATE I: The GOP demands an apology for outrageous Nazi comment. California Democrat Chair Burton makes an non-apology apology regarding the Nazi propaganda comment.
UPDATE: In response to the uproar over his (below) comments Monday, California Democratic Party Chair John Burton issued this statement:
“To correct press reports of my recent comments about Republican lies, I did not call Republicans Nazis nor would I ever. In fact, I didn’t even use the word.
“If Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or the Republicans are insulted by my describing their campaign tactic as the big lie – I most humbly apologize to them or anyone who might have been offended by that comment.”
Really, this is the demeanor of the lunatic LEFT and their idea of an apology? I guess it all depends of what Hitler, is? You would compare some one to a Nazi propagandist by name, but claim that you did not call them a Nazi. It is really sad what the Democrat party has become. The Moonbats have become the main stream in the party.
The Gateway Pundit states, “Their policies suck. The economy is in shambles. They bet the farm on the Stimulus and it failed. They’ve hit rock bottom.” That pretty much sums it up in a “NUT” shell.
Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) Was a Great Romney VP Pick … In Florida With his Mom Betty Ryan Says … “Mom, I’m proud of you for the small business you created. YOU DID BUILD THAT!!!”
Paul Ryan … he continues to be a great choice by Mitt Romney for the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate.
Yesterday, at a campaign rally in Florida at The Villages, the largest retirement community for seniors in the world. At the event Paul Ryan brought his secret weapon, his 78 year old mom Betty. Many Democrat pundits thought that Romney would keep Ryan away from the seniors and Florida because of Ryan’s plan to fix Medicare. Hardly, Ryan went straight to the swing state of Florida that is home to the greatest number of seniors in America to tell the truth of his plan. Ryan drew huge crowds at The Villages as reported by Deep Fried Manatees.
Also reported at the Orlando Sentinel, Ryan spoke to an adoring, invigorated crowd of thousands. When the truth comes out of the Romney-Ryan Medicare plan vs. Obamacare and the taking of money from the program. Ryan stated that we must fulfill the promise and the guarantee of Medicare to present seniors and reform it for the generations to follow.
A large banner sign behind him said, “Protect and strengthen Medicare,” a crucial theme of his speech to the mostly 55-plus crowd. Meanwhile, an airplane circled above the event with a banner that read “Paul Ryan: Keep Your Hands off Our Medicare.”
Ryan focused on Medicare seven minutes into his speech. He said older Americans, including his mother, have planned their retirements around the program.
“We have got to keep that guarantee,” he said.
But to save Medicare, Ryan said it must be reformed for his generation and beyond. Ryan has called on the introduction of a voucher program in which individuals can shop for coverage.
Ryan contrasted his plan to leave the program intact for current seniors with President Barack Obama’s plan, which Ryan said would take decision-making power away from seniors to a panel of 15 bureaucrats.
During Paul Ryan’s speech he wowed the crowds with the truth and honesty of his views of the fixing Medicare so that it would uphold the promise of healthcare to the present day and soon to be seniors as well as provide a choice for those under the age of 55. However, Ryan did one better, he brought his secret Medicare weapon to Florida in the form of his mom, Betty. Any honest, right thinking person knows that Ryan is not going to do something that would take Medicare away from his own mother. However, in a brilliant combination of political issues, Ryan combined the Medicare issue with the economy, jobs and small business. President Obama will rue the day he ever made the comment “you did not build it with regards to small business owners. During Ryans speach as he was honoring his mom, see video below, Paul Ryan said the following to the cheers of the crowd … “Mom, I’m proud of you for the small business you created. YOU DID BUILD THAT!!!”
Honestly, how does one even compare the two VP candidates at this point? In one corner you have the GOP superstar Paul Ryan who has been an incredibly boost the the Romney campaign and invigorated the campaign from defense to offense. In the other, you have Democrats Joe Biden who has been such a colossal screw-up and gaffe master that he has been sent by Obama to stand in the corner in a political time out.
Check out more of Ryan’s speech at RCP (VIDEO) …
Paul Ryan: “We had a rule in Wisconsin. It’s kind of an unwritten rule: you turn 65; you have to go south for the winter. We call them ‘snow birds’. My mom is a snow bird. She is a Florida resident, and she lives over by Ft. Lauderdale, and she like so many people here, she comes down here for the winter—just like so many folks from all over the country do. You know, my grandma moved in with us—with my mom and me—when I was in high school. She had advanced Alzheimer’s. My mom and I were her two primary caregivers. You learn a lot about life; you learn a lot about your elderly seniors in your family; you learn a lot about Alzheimer’s. Medicare was there for our family, for my grandma, when we needed it then; and Medicare is there for my mom while she needs it now, and we have to keep that guarantee.”
