If they are, then what's left of the Dems in the Senate will fight them tooth and nail.

Rick Ballard

"What if all of President Romney's nominations are this good?"

It would be no surprise whatsoever. He's definitely an A who has no problem hiring other A types. BOzo has never been more than a low B and wants nothing to do with anyone holding A status. Look at SloJo in comparison to Ryan as an example. It took a C hire to elevate B for BOzo.

Unless they have Andrea Mitchell as a moderator for the Veep Debate, Slow Joe is toast. On the other hand, if they do have Andrea, she'll walk over to Joe, give him a big sloppy wet kiss and say "You da man Joe". Then she'll tell Ryan to shut up and declare the debate closed.

Only way that I see Slow Joe having a chance in the debate.

That explains so much and yet opens so many new areas of inquiry.

AliceH

It's possible someone already posted this on the last thread, but I'll (re)post Ace's take on it here regardless:

Concerned New Yorker is Concerned:

For one thing, Ryan has no significant private-sector experience. Besides summer jobs working at McDonald’s or at his family’s construction company, or waiting tables as a young Washington staffer, Ryan has none of the business-world experience Romney frequently touts as essential for governing. In the run-up to his first campaign for Congress, in 1998, that gap was enough of a concern for Ryan that he briefly became a “marketing consultant” at the family business, an obvious bit of résumé puffing.

But Ryan’s Washington experience is also light, at least for a potential President—which, after all, is the main job description of a Vice-President. Ryan has worked as a think-tank staffer and Congressman, but he’s never been in charge of a large organization, and he has little experience with foreign policy. Given how Sarah Palin was criticized for her lack of such experience, I’m surprised that Romney would pick someone whose ability to immediately step into the top job is open to question.

Ace's rebuttal: http://youtu.be/iYVO5bUFww0

DrJ

You mean Nixon is Barry's dad?

You didn't hear that from me. :)

Thomas Collins

No wonder Obama doesn't want his original birth certificate to see the light of day!

MarkO

I really didn't mean that Nixon's slogan was "Ryan's The One." But I do recall the pregant woman's shirt.

Shep and Bob. JFC.

Ignatz

I'm trying to get my head around Alice's link.
Let's see, CEO is bad and middle/working class jobs are now nothing too, which means the only thing that qualifies one for the presidency to the New Yorker smart set is never having held down a private sector job at all?
He's 42 years old and has apparently ascended to the Chairman of the Budget Committee by magic having done almost nothing in the last 20 years. Do they think his name is Barack?
BTW they neglected to mention his stint at Oscar Meyer and driving the Weinermobile, which alone should qualify one for high office. I'm looking forward to seeing both Barry and SloJo tossed under it.
I wonder if Barry drove the Dachshundmobile in Indonesia.

Ralph L

I'm sure Obama is relieved that the Republicans now can't talk about his precious ears.

DrJ

Iggy,

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

You know this of course.

Ignatz

BTW it's always a good day when you buy three guns.
I might even let WeeDavey play with one, provided it is loaded with a round in the chamber and the safety off, since I'm an irresponsible Republican who let's infants and their addlepated and inebriated adult equivalents do so routinely.

Thomas Collins

Ryan is too smart, and can speak in the vocabulary of the oligarchs while shredding their dearly held beliefs. Thus, the New Yorker can't even think about playing the dumb card. The inexperience card is simply an attempt to develop a trust cue description of Ryan to downgrade him among coastal pseudo-elites.

My appeal last weekend to always cite the person/post one is referring to when commenting here has gone largely ignored (Chubby really gave a go at it, though!).

But hell if that will stop me from my newest appeal!

Extended quotes of others' words should be blockquoted.

Not italicized and not bolded. I italicize the quotes of others to whom I am responding - but that is almost always a sentence or two.

The hit and run style guide is quite detailed, this item can be found in chapter 2, page 4, paragraph xii.

Reading italicized and/or bolded type is just more difficult. Maybe that's just me and my rapidly aging and degrading eyesight. I now am reduced to wearing reading glasses on the computer - but for whatever reason, I resist wearing them as much as possible. My glasses are sitting on the table in the breakfast room right now, and I am stubbornly refusing to put them on.

Seeing extended italicized or bolded text causes me to skip trying to read it. But maybe that's just me.

In fact, DoT does not blockquote. Instead he puts quotation marks around the text he is quoting without any use of italics or bold. To me, and maybe only me, this is to be preferred over bolding or italicizing extended quotes.

Personally, I prefer reserving italics and bold for short snippets of text. As always, I am trying to make JOM as readable as possible -- my intent is not to criticize the way others post. My suggestions may not be widely held, and where that is true, I do hope they are ignored. Ignorance is bliss.

MarkO

Hell, hit. I'm lucky to get the damn thing typed at all. Whenever I've tried to use what is described as "HTML tags" nothing good happens.

You'll have to pretend I typed a paper in 1963.

--My appeal last weekend to always cite the person/post one is referring to when commenting here has gone largely ignored (Chubby really gave a go at it, though!).--

In our JOM meetup last week I suggested, when quoting text, to include the name and time stamp of the comment one is referring to as a method of ID. Since then I've sedulously avoided doing it but vow to give it a shot, just for you Hit...starting with my very next comment. :)
It's especially useful to others when coming onto a thread that has been going on for some time and quoting from a page or two back, which as an early snoozer, I do quite a lot of many mornings.

I tend to agree, but your use of the follow-up research report without clearly delineating what you think is still sound in the original research report puzzles me. :-))

Rob Crawford

Well, the "true conservatives" who wouldn't have voted for Romney anyway sure aren't happy with this pick. The "he's a MORMON" clowns will be adding on "AND HE'S A CATH-O-LICK!" The Ron Paultards will, of course, be too busy between waking up (noon) and 4:20 (toking up) finding a supplier to vote, but they're unhappy because Ryan's "never accomplished anything".

The "what has the lesser of two evils gotten us" crowd is apparently ready to give Obama the chance to give more industries to the union thugs, just to show the rest of us.

The left, meanwhile, is busy explaining to everyone that Ryan and Romney are white males -- this is apparently a bad thing -- while screaming all the same things they screamed before Reagan and both Bush's were elected. This is supposed to be convincing.

But hit I just learned how to do that recently and after an initial faux pas I am now careful to close.

I promise not to bold a whole section but the occasional word is fun. At least for the technologically challenged trying to practice.

It was a start and I really had to get on to my family that leaning over and doing it for me was not teaching me a thing.

JOM has no rules. If it had rules, half of us could never post due to not being able to remember where we put the paper with the rules written on it.

Clearly Ryan was the wrong pick -- disaffected Republicans, staying away in droves, have brought Romney's site to a standstill.

I've been trying to get on the Romney site for a couple hours -- because, as a weak-kneed, weak-hearted conservative I'm going to stab Lady Liberty in the back by supporting their campaign -- but no response.

A facebook acquaintance of mine proudly posts of his son's trip to Japan to teach a college course in "Race in Baseball". Apparently the teaching of 'studies' is an affliction not unique to the US.

He also pointed out this morning that the "Nuns on the Bus" will be busy this Fall. Apparently this is a handful of useful idiots that the Left is more than happy to point to as examples of real Catholics, and they've been making Code Pink-style pests of themselves at Ryan public appearances for a while now.

I think we misjudged the power of Romney in the White House. Can you imagine a foriegn policy where he can pick up the phone and tell Putin and Almadeenjadh that he will kills their wives in 22 days if they don't fall in line.

Obama only wields that kind of power over aborted fetus that survive the procedure and dogs on forign soil.

See, that's exactly what the hit and run style guide says

Many years ago, back in Compuserve days, I used software developed for posting in their forums and got used to its preformed comments.

Italics when quoting what you are replying about.

Blockquotes for linked quotes.

I try to stick to that format, but lately I've gotten lazy and sloppy.

Firefox HTML toolbar makes it so much easier, but really there isn't much to remember about two commands.

You're part right, hit. I use quotation marks when posting from my iPad because I don't know how to do blockquotes (or italics) on that device.

But when at my computer, I observe two protocols: (1) when quoting the language of a previous post, I italicize it; and (2) when quoting anything longer than a single phrase or sentence from another source, I blockquote it.

The weather this Summer has been some of the weirdest I can remember. We just had a massive thunderstorm and just up the road from me they experienced a bad hail storm. It got so dark, I had to turn on the overhead light and my computer light to see across the room. It dropped the triple digit temps down into the 80s, but unfortunately with near 100% humidity it still feels like triple digits. It is bad enough to be fainting hot, but add in sticky too and it gets pretty unbearable, especially when you have 4 dogs all trying to get on my lap at the same time every time there is even a hint of a rumble of thunder. I finally got over on the bed and made the big dog, over 100 lbs., lie down against my back. He was shaking so bad, it was like getting a "magic fingers" massage without have to insert a quarter.
