Janet, you will need to help me with the blockquotes. I'll contact you privately. My neighbors have had a block party for the last 47 years, but I don't think I can quote anyone.

Clarice, Ulsterman is right about Ryan and the Tea Party. Ryan campaigned with the Tea Party Express all spring in support of Walker (as did Priebus). It was and continues to be an effective pairing. Right now I regret sleeping in July 4 -- Ryan was at the Rochester Parade and hung out with the locals at the BBQ / Brat Fest after the parade. No aides, no security, genuine mingling with his constituents. My neighbors still razz me for missing that, it will be tuff getting that close ever again.

Oh, I don't think everything at Ulsterman is false. It's just that I think there is no "Insider" feeding him info..except maybt the voice in his head.

TM, I posted pictures of Evgeniya Kanaeva on the last thread. She will appeal to the independents and garner more votes.

blockquote test:

I know how the "tea party" people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health-care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their "Obama Plan White Slavery" signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads.

Success for Janet!!

Janet

I figured if you were gonna contact me Frau, I better learn how to do it....I'd never used that blockquote option on the HTML toolbar.

I was just reading the twitter feed at Real Clear Politics and the talking point anti Ryan theme seems to be lack of foreign policy experience. As opposed to Obama's as a candidate which was ..... (Janet, see my .... I'm paying attention)

Forget Ryan with the bow. Keep posting the work-out pix. I had no idea.

Then again he is a bit younger than I.

On the last thread I mentioned that Paul Ryan was born four days before I was . . . for reference.

Yeah, I triple blockquoted that because that's how I roll.

Jane - talk is cheap!

The problem with a showdown is Obama will never engage. He simply doesn't know enough about the issues - any of the issues. He knows he single-handedly got bin Laden. He memorized that one. And he knows that the republicans want to steal your entitlements, but he's not quite sure why or when.

No, this election is about racism. Pure and simple.

And the Veep that Jughead picked for his "foreign policy chops" used that valuable skill set to come up with the following suggestion on 9/11: Hey gang, whattaya say we just give Iran $250 million, no strings attached. You don't get that kind of brilliance without experience.

Pretty good tcb.
Out of order;

3. Very, very close; it's a 102 series, nearly identical.
2. Not too close, but a good guess. Rare French made Charlin. Similar to the somewhat less rare Darne. Both have a breech block which slides to the rear rather than a hinge pin and an action that breaks like a conventional SXS.

Iggy,

I don't do cultures. I will have samples of human pleural cavity fluid, both with and without cancer, in the lab next week. Does that count?

Finally, I can get in to mittromney.com

I'm not entirely sold on the logo design, but the team itself is . . . awesome.

Sara

What is the problem at Fox? I can hardly stand them any more. They spend more time running all the dem negative ads or giving every dem talking point than the libs do. I am not the biggest Huck fan, but I will never watch another show with that awful Laura Ingraham on again and he, at least, has some interesting and different topics sometimes.

Rob Crawford

Yeah, I was finally able to get in, and found a car magnet. Bought it and made a donation.

Yes, I am "wimping out" with a magnet.

Janet

Here is that Courtland Milloy column.
He links to a "Obama Plan White Slavery" sign...but I don't see that sign. The link takes you to some WaPo pictures of the Kill the Bill rally on March 20th & even some from a small rally that was a few days earlier.
Picture #12 shows how big the event was on the 20th! Pretty cool for such short notice.
Picture #18 is of me at the small rally on the 16th. I was so discouraged....but then on the 20th so many more came. Jim Ryan had come on a bus on the 16th to talk to his Congressman. Michele Bachmann spoke...she was faithful about speaking to tea partiers no matter the size of the gathering.

Ralph L

That one-legged R is effete and not bold, but the election will be decided by thirtysomething women, so it might be a good choice. That and sending out Mr. Muscles in sleeveless shirts.

I hope the Dems get sued if they pull out the Rols Royce RR logo.

Gack.
Anybody got any good boob jokes to elevate the discussion?

Janet

Hah, NJ Jan! ....well done!

Jim Ryan

It's been a weird day. At first, when I saw the news, I though I was the pick. I was flustered and flattered. I called my mom and there was some confusion and embarrassment. Long story short, it got straightened out and I'm sincerely glad about the pick. Not sure if I can get in touch with Paul's people about a Ryan-Ryan '20 ticket right now but it's a bit early for that. Anyway, hat's off to Mitt for the pick, congrats to Paul Ryan and no offense taken at my end. My mistake.

Ignatz

Another lull as the trolls take off the tinfoil so they can receive the new talking points transmissions on Ryan.

Rob Crawford

Joe Biden!

(What? He's the biggest joke of a boob I could think of.)

Janet

I'd vote for ya Jim! We missed you on Friday at the DC meet up.

I was thinking of boobs with fewer hair plugs and more brains but it made me laugh so what's not to like?

Romney and Ryan can handle finance mathematics. Obama and Biden....

Jim Ryan

Thanks, Janet, I almost bolted from work. Couldn't. Extremely busy. I'm working through two of my vacation days (this Monday and Tuesday).... Glad you had a good time.

After pointing out that I was born four days after Paul Ryan, I would also like to point out we have one JOMer and one JOMer's spouse who share his birthday.

We also have one JOMer who shares a birthday with Mitt Romney.

Future Vice President Ryan:

We will very much consider a trip up there for that.

Jim Ryan

The Ryan pick does two things. It throws reddest meat possible to the hardcore "cut spending" conservative base/tea party, as an earnest appeal for their support this fall. It also, in the event of a win, gives the "cut spending" cause an unsurpassed leader in the executive branch. If Ryan can be replaced by someone in his league on the Budget Committee, then this works. If he gets replaced by a RINO, then it's a net loss unless Ryan is an extremely active VP....

NJ Jan

Sara,that is a great picture. Love Ryan's daughter in the background waving and smiling.

Fine, whatever.

Better boobs pic?

I spent 2 hours talking baseball with Roger Clemens behind a batting cage at PLNU today. He's pretty damned cool!

I wish that Romney (and now Ryan) would both get themselves some Summer suits and lose the heavy dark ones. I thought about sending a message to Tagg or Josh Romney on FB, but chickened out.

Well Newscorp's general turnaway from the Tea Party ethos, even before the phone tapping
scandal, has been quite apparent, I think Tucson was the signature event when they were
miffed that Sarah defend herself and the party
by proxy, and it's gotten worse since then,

Forcing Beck out for the round robin of the 5, which is 'Red Eye' without the whimsey,
was another sign, now it's been clear that the Top Men, where clearly on his side, re
other challengers, but once he was nominated, it was like the tale of the
'dog chasing the car' what happens when it catches up,

Great minds think alike, Rick.

Sara never ever wants to see men in white suits. I was thinking more of Summer weight light grey or off white to light khaki, or a very light pinstripe.

Sara

My other complaint, attire-wise, is Romney and his tie. He wears what looks to be the same one nearly every day. For a man with as many kids and grandchildren not to have more ties, seems hard to believe or do kids give their Pops something different these days. I know he doesn't like to spend any money on himself, but he really needs someone to go buy him a bunch of new ties.

Carol Herman

Game changer. A perfect pick!

Carville got it right back in 1992 when he said "It's the economy, stupid."

The other thing that can happen is that Obama gets real nasty.

Then, of course, there will be the vice-presidential debates that take place at some point in October. You think Biden can hold his own?

Rob Crawford
You think Biden can hold his own?

Yeah, but thankfully the podium will hide it from the camera.

How many votes do you think the tie issue could cost him?

Ryan has private industry work experience . . . he drove the Weinermobile.

Hah! When we lived in Nashville, mrs hit and run's parents lived in Panama City Beach, FL. On one of our drives down there, we were in Alabama and . . . the Weinermobile comes ambling up on the northbound side of I-65.

Frau Steingehirn

Sara, Ryan drove Little Oscar's Wienermobile. Anthony Weiner drove his own.

What's wrong with wearing the same tie often? It might be his lucky tie--you know like Jon F'in's hat.

Sara

How many votes do you think the tie issue could cost him?

If the people here are any indication, I'm probably the only one who has watched him often enough to even notice. But now that you are aware, check out the number of times he has that light blue tie on.

I just find it odd. When my Dad died, he had over 300 ties, some he inherited from my Grandfather, but many he got as Christmas gifts, and I'm an only child.

Jane

Wow Donald, someone I actually know. I bet that was fun!

Thanks Frau.

And I don't think there is anything "wrong" with wearing the same tie, just odd.

Sara:

Just so.

But like the summer suits, if it isn't costing him votes, I'm ok if he's focused on other things.

Sara

I have over 150 ties. In the past 15 years I have worn three of them, including the red one with the Christmas goose on it.

NBREAKING NEWS on Fox. Brace yourself -- Paul Ryan was voted Prom King and biggest brown noser in high school. THE scandal has been exposed. The Onion is going to have a hard time being differentiated from real news at this rate.

It was funny seeing Romney tearing down the steps of that Warship like he was about to host a 1970's gameshow. Also ironic since both he and Ryan have no Military experience.

President Obama has years of Military experience under his belt, he got Bin laden for Gods sake.

I have read that the reason Romney is not fighting back against the septic Soptic smear among other garbage put forward by the dipshit in the WH, is that he has not yet been officially nominated and he is out of primary $. Couldn't one of the Romney supporting Super Pacs hit the JEF on R's behalf until after the primary?

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.

When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful ...Continue Reading
