View Diary: My GOP friend summed up why Biden won debate (248 comments)

    The value in a debate is hearing discussion on platforms and positions.  Perhaps if they listened they would realize that the reason Biden outperformed Ryan is that Romney/Ryan platforms and positions don't make sense and hold no water.  That if you have a plan to get rid of Medicare then say that and say why.  Don't try to muddy the water by saying that you are "saving" it but tell folks you don't like it because you don't want to pay for other people's healthcare.  It seems like every major statement they make have little invisible asterisks after them.  We will not change Medicare (for anyone over 55 but those under 55 will never see Medicare again.)

    Romney/Ryan propose nothing new.  All of their positions are rehashed GOP positions that we have all seen create bad outcomes.  I'm thinking that may be why the GOP is down on science - because with science you conclusion doesn't support the hypothesis if your outcomes do not support your hypothesis.  The GOP stop at hypotheses and declare them to be proven fact.
