At a time when we have a jobs crisis, wouldn’t it be nice to have a job creator in the White House?Paul Ryan, making his final appeal to the American viewing public: “We ask for your vote.”
Our faith informs us in everything we do, that’s matter of course. But it’s not simply because of my Catholic faith, but also because of reason and science. …I believe that life begins at conception.Paul Ryan, explaining his position on abortion. He detailed seeing his unborn child on an ultrasound for the first time, and seeing her heart beat, as a reason he views life as beginning at conception. He said a Romney/Ryan ticket would oppose abortion, though he insists exceptions would be made for cases of rape and incest.
I’ve been throughout that whole country… the fact is we went there for one reason, to get those people who killed Americans. Al-qaeda. We have decimated al-qaeda central, we have killed Osama bin Laden.Joe Biden, finally name dropping Osama bin Laden in the debate’s Afghanistan segment. Biden and Ryan clashed earlier over looming defense cuts forced by last year’s sequestration deal – Biden advocated for a “leaner” military with more special forces, while Ryan denounced the deal’s mandatory cuts, despite having voted for them in congress.
What I’ve always agreed, is let younger Americans have a voluntary choice to let their money work faster for them in the Social Security system.Paul Ryan, defending how he and his running mate Mitt Romney primarily want to reform the entitlement state –a voucher system for Medicare (what Ryan calls a “premium support plan”), and a partial privatization of Social Security. This divide between Ryan and Biden has been a vociferous one, with Biden casting Ryan as a dedicated foe of these popular entitlements.
You’re a foreign policy expert. Facts matter.Vice President Joe Biden’s rebuke to debate moderator Martha Raddatz, who suggested Biden’s rhetoric on Iran (he condemned “loose talk” of Iran obtaining a weapon, in spite of their distance from the necessary technology) sounded as if he was saying Iran didn’t want such a weapon.
That’s incredible… These are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions, period.Joe Biden, defending his administration’s stance on sanctions against Iran. Paul Ryan accused the administration of lacking any credibility on preventing Iran’s nuclear program, which elicited a broad grin from Biden and the above rejoinder. The debate has been pointed and hot so far, as Biden is striking the polar opposite mood of President Obama’s listless performance last week.
That’s a bunch of malarkey.Joe Biden, attacking Paul Ryan on his ticket’s response to the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, in which the Romney campaign accused President Obama of seeming to sympathize with the killers.
