I do give Ryan credit, though, for how he wonderfully got in that he not only relies on Catholicism, he also relies on science and reason. Good job.

I heard Biden's answer to that question, and figured, "well, if you don't believe what the Church teaches about life, then "social(ist) justice" is all you got."

OTOH, I don't like Romney giving in to exceptions. That just says, as one correctly pointed out, that neither believe in a Right to Life, but just disagree about who is expendable. wide eyed

The goofy smile/laugh/smirk was not very vice-presidential. Just think if he dd that while negotiating with Putin. Our next war would be settled by a duel - if Joe showed up.

It is amazing....I like switching back and forth between news stations to see their responses. Wallace called it disrespectful...which it was...NBC said he was being friendly and respectful when he used the words "my friend" and lauged....he was condescending but they twisted it.

While Romney does give in to exceptions, Ryan does not....he said so tonight that he knew life began at conception (he went to Catholic school too did you know that), but Ryan did say that the republican platform does give in to those exceptions.

The smile aside, I am sooo sick of how they just LIE....I mean he was taking credit for himself and Obama for the sanctions against Iran when they fought the sanctions at every turn...the sanctions are because of congress!!!! Ryan pointed that out and he still kept lying about it...I'm so sick of these politicians getting away with lying. So far listening to the post discussions, I haven't heard any news stations bring this up!

Biden's comment about how the Rich are patriotic and don't want tax cuts was funny....I guess some are...but I'm not rich, but if I was I can guarantee that I still wouldn't want the govt. stealing my money to give it to where they think it should go like abortions and birth control...I'd rather take care of donating my ten percent to where I felt God wanted it to go....



Chris Wallace said he has never seen a debate where someone was as rude as Biden!

I liked what Ryan said about how this tax on the rich would only run the govt. for six days anyway because of their spending and then it is going to come down to the middle class paying it....so true.

Biden a practicing Catholic????

As Ryan said "sometimes the works don't come out of your mouth the right way". Biden mistook "practicing" to "admitting" he was a Catholic.
