Now, your turn: What did you think?
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.
