Okay now, this is rich! Team Obama, according to The Hill, is confident that Biden will be able to take on Paul Ryan in their debates. According to the piece:
…Obama’s campaign is brimming with confidence about the match-up between Biden and Ryan, arguing that the real game-changer is on their side.
In speeches Monday and Tuesday in the swing states of North Carolina and Virginia, Biden cranked up the rhetoric, highlighting the Obama campaign’s belief that it has the momentum in the race — not Romney and Ryan.
Senior aides close to Biden insist the vice president can attack Ryan and Romney with force and his characteristic folksiness, all while charming a crowd with humor and self-effacement.
“He’s real confident talking about Ryan because he knows him. It’s an easy thing for him to do,” said one senior adviser to Biden. “He can criticize Ryan without being personal about it.”
God love ‘em, those Okies, for doing what they should. As a fellow Okie, I am proud of these oil producers and drillers gathering in Cushing, OK (Payne County) to protest the president’s visit. They know how he feels about them, and say what you will about Democrat support….Oklahoma’s Democrats are some of the most conservative in the nation. It’s because they use common sense. From KFOR-TV:
