Romney so misrepresented his record in Denver that it will be hard for the former Massachusetts Governor to walk it back tonight because Romney will be lying about his record to a room full of voters.
Much like the first debate, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney will win the second debate as well but on a much smaller scale. The reasons for the second win in a row will be quite different on the surface but will be much the same beneath the surface.
The Vice Presidential nominees demonstrated style and substance in their feisty, first and only debate. But also, a lot of spin.
Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.
Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.
The guys who usually play second fiddle in the race for the White House stole the spotlight in a much different debate than their bosses gave us last week.

Americans continually hear that the president of the United States can do nothing about gas prices. John Hofmeister says that isn’t true. The doubled gas prices could have been avoided but no one in a political position who can do anything about the prices wants to do anything.

Vice President Joe Biden was back campaigning in Wisconsin on Thursday. The Vice President spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this morning. It was his second visit to the state this month.
Jill Biden is scheduled to make campaign stops Friday in Brooklyn Park, Hopkins and St. Paul, the Obama campaign announced Wednesday.
The battle for the Badger state is heating up. Television viewers in Wisconsin will begin seeing President Obama’s ads starting Wednesday, just five days after Mitt Romney’s ads hit the airwaves.
Tonight, when Vice President Biden and President Obama address the country the question before them is an obvious one: are we better off than we were four years ago? The answer is equally obvious: YES!
Our economy is on a slow recovery – slower than anyone wants. But the lack of serious discussion about national security and the world we live in is troubling.
Republicans are kept accountable for their own misspeaks and actions. Unlike the Democrats’ life jacket being tossed out to a sinking politician by the Party, when a Republican politician does the inexcusable, the Republican Party throws him an anchor – and that’s how it should be.
