    Fitness or not - the way he continually had to drink.  I also watched his eyes and his throat.  He had to swallow a lot and then would drink water.  Dry throat is significant.

    •  Do you work out a lot? (0+ / 0-)

      Do you train for runs or bike races? Lift a lot of weights?

      Look, I know it's fun to run down the other guys' candidates, but there's plenty to rip Rep Ryan substantively about without indulging in misinterpreting silly personal stuff.

      The real enemy of the good is not the perfect, but the mediocre.

        Drinking all that water made him look nervous. It doesn't matter why he was drinking it. As I have learned in the last week, the only thing that matters on a television debate stage is how you look. Body language is how you win or lose. So if poor Lyin Ryan works out so much that he's so dehydrated that he cannot go for 90 minutes during the one national televised VP debate without gulping copious amounts of water, too bad for him.

        Dry mouth, big fitness guru, whatever, he drank a lot of water during the debate and in my 60 yrs, I have never seen anyone, during such a high profile debate, drink that much water!  

        What I truly didn't like was the smug, condescending smirk on his face that he directed towards Joe.  But then, I don't like anything he or Romney say or do right now.
