  •  Ryan was a buncha nothin'. (24+ / 0-)

    Joe did great!  Substance, style (I liked the laughing - somebody was finally treating the Republican bullshit with the derision it deserves), and he didn't gaffe, which is the main thing I was worried about.  I mean, I love Joe, but, y'know, he does do that sometimes.

    Ryan remained calm, which was pretty good considering he was gettin' treated like a rental car.  But he was remarkably non-substantive.  Whenever asked what he and Romney would do, he'd just talk about past things that Obama should have done.  That's not an answer.  If a glass of water falls and spills on the floor and somebody says "What are we going to do about this?" you say "Wipe it up," not "We shouldn't have put the glass so close to the edge of the table."  Ryan's answers were non-answers, and not helpful, and it looked like exactly what it was -- he and Romney don't have any answers.

    Also, when directly asked for details of his plans, he repeatedly did not give them.  Here's a fact about a guy who has a really good plan for something - he wants to tell people about it.  Ryan didn't.  Because he has no workable plan... just promises.

    And bringing up a car wreck story to Joe Biden?  I don't think Ryan did that to be mean - he's an asshole but I don't wanna think he's that big an asshole, 'cuz that'd be pure meanness -- but it was poor thinking and insensitive.  Dumb and klutzy, bad form for a guy who's applying for a diplomatic-type of job.

    And, this is mean and it's shallow, but I don't care -- Ryan just looks like a putzy guy.  He looks confused and childish.  He can't help it, it's genetics, but I don't buy all that "handsome" shit -- he looks like Eddie fucking Munster, and Eddie Munster when he's in some kind of trouble, on top of it.
