    What a disaster this election is shaping up to be.

    Obama is going to destroy these two.

    Looks like we're in for another 4 years of malaise.

    My wife made a mistake & said Romney picked Ron Paul... I said WHAT????? Then I thought pretty gutsy choice as he appeals to a lot of mainstream Americans especially with his domestic fiscal policies. I got a little excited thinking a Romney-Paul ticket might be a very strong force against Obama-Biden strictly because of Paul's appeal. Then I found out it wasn't Ron Paul but Paul Ryan. What a letdown... Barely know the guy other than he likes to cut, cut, cut. Four more years of Obama.

    These cost-cutters (like Ryan) are pretty bold men when they are interviewed on media, get to put out their own speeches. However, when confronted by specifics like which programs will you cut, who will you lay off or fire, etc. they tend to go to the politicians playbook and either 1. Change the Question or 2. Dance around the answer (babbling something about studying the situation and making decisions - - - LATER)

    We get that in Canada all the time. Cost-cutters get elected cuz its pretty appealing for Joe Q 'Stupid' Public. But once they're in office, they are confronted by interest groups to avoid cutting - in fact some of them add fat to the pork pies.
