“Relax Tanya. Not too long ago, everyone denegrated gay, lesbian and bisexual folks. It was like the way people treated non-white people. Let it go. That was then and now is now. Obama needs a Secretary of Defense and most of us are better behaved and/or more educated.”

“Please! If this guy wasn't a Democrat you guys would be asking for his head.”
“Spoken like a true expert on foreign affairs. How would you have handled it, genius? After the Republicans cut additional funds for security of foreign offices, how would you pay for added security, food stamps?. Thank god for Mondays. Otherwise neocons wouldn't have any place to second guess people.”

“pjmong - The State Dept people testified that the security was not pulled due to budget. They were pulled because the administration wanted to have a low-profile security appearance there...in our most dangerous outpost.
I would have responded to the pleas of this seasoned diplomat and sent the Marines that were lolling around in Paris to give Stevens the requested protection.”
“Even the Neocons thought Biden won. So what's with the polls?”

“The Obama narrative that Romney is a liar, selfish etc. fell apart in the first debate. Romney saying I don't have a 5 trillion dollar tax cut took the narrative of who Romney is from Obama.
Biden was trying to define who Ryan and Romney are in the debate with the laughs and the contempt. But he was clumsy in doing it.
Hurts Obama in 2 ways.
1) The real reason Obama lost the election is he was caught trying to define Romney too much. Obama said Romney believes this and Romney said no I don't. Every action Biden used that said this kid believes this while also acting like an ass hurt Obama.
2) The hard hitting tactics Biden used are now poisoned for Obama because Biden so overplayed them that Obama risks being painted with Joe's brush when he uses them. Biden interrupted when Ryan was trying to define Ryan's own positions on taxes. Romney interrupted when Obama was trying to define Romney's positions. Both of these interruptions hurt team Obama and play into the narrative that is costing him the election.
Obama is now limited on the passive side by his first debate and limited on the aggressive side by his VP debate. The debate team on Romney's side are a step or to ahead of the Obama team and it shows. Big Bird and Abortion weren't accidents. There is a strategy to them.”
