    as they are required to be of any assistance possible, why would not a Bishop of the Mormons (Romney) assist a fellow Mormon that is in his flock.  This is not compassion, this is nonsense.  Romney is no more of a compassionate man than I am Brad Pitt.

      Mittens "human interest anecdotes" have a common thread-people who are helped are LDS or co-workers at Bain. Color me unimpressed. And I am positive Ryan threw in the "car crash" anecdote to rattle the VP. Joe Biden wears his heart on his sleeve. The Mittens campaign was hoping he'd brake down. Beyond vile and desppicable.

        Biden not only deflected it, but smoothly advanced his debate agenda with his response:
        "When I was a little younger than the congressman..."

        Biden was 30 at the time, a complete novice and soon to be a newcomer to Washington.  Even though Ryan is 42 and has been in Congress for 14 years, he looks so young, particularly when appearing next to Romney or to Biden, that you can draw a close parallel.  Biden may as well have said "when I was little younger..." without the "a."  It subtly painted Ryan as inexperienced, especially compared to Biden.

        It won't get talked about in the MSM, but that was an absolutely f'ing brilliant moment from Biden.

        I also love how Biden called Ryan "Congressman" over and over and over again, notwithstanding RomneyRyan's request to call him "Mr.", thereby pinning the American people's loathing of Congress squarely on him.  This was all deliberate, of course, and that's why it was such a masterful performance.
