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.”
As you all know who have been reading (or trying to read) my blog lately, I have been suffering from several things: On a brief hiatus; recovering from a debilitating health problem; having problems with bad HTML codes; experimenting with new themes for customization (with as little of a financial impact on me as possible, which is very key); and a slight burnout on these embarrassing weeks of GOP on GOP in-fighting.
I gotta tell ya folks; this kind of reminds me of something a friend of mine recently went through. She and her siblings agreed to meet with their now-divorced parents for dinner. While at the restaurant after exchanging shallow pleasantries, her parents began immediately engaging in loud and boisterous arguing about what the other had done wrong in the marriage. Dad was yelling at mom, and mom was yelling at dad, and it wasn’t meant, quite clearly, to bridge any relationship gaps that had formed since their divorce many years ago.
This is the quality of character that this country is sorely missing in our Commander in Chief. Remember when George Bush, regardless of how bad things were, he would always remind us of how great America is, how exceptional Americans really are, and how we would always muddle through no matter what? I do…and I miss that.
Now I’m not saying I need to have mmy hand held by my president, but I am saying that what the president says and re-iterates over and over sets the overall tone for the country as a hole. How much longer do you want to hear our president call us lazy, cowardly, arrogant, and so many other things, like Barack Obama has done all throughout his first 3 years as president? I’m sick of it, and I’m ready for a new day, a new president, and a revival of the American spirit so we are motivated to rediscover that entrepreneurial, unbreakable, enigmatic sense of what it means to BE an American!
