Thoughts on Paul Ryan?

I'm kind of new to iVillage, so I hope I'm posting in the right place!

I was just wondering what you think about Romney's VP choice.  I don't know a lot about Paul Ryan, so I don't have much of an opinion yet.

Hmmmm..... no link???????

Still waiting for a link that shows that the WSJ is biased in its reporting due to their affiliation with Newscorp. Proof please????? The onus of proof is on the one who makes the claim, or so I have been told.......

It appears you missed seeing this response from jabberwocka: 


"There are two parts to the quotation. The Wall Street Journal is owned by Murdoch. Was bought by News Corp in 2007. No study needed. For more details and a comparison to the New York Times, see http://www.journalism.org/commentary_backgrounder/wall_street_journal_under_rupert_murdoch

Second part involving bias towards Romney is my opinion. I read the WSJ when its stories appear in Google News. If you think it's been critical of Romney since his wins over all other GOP contenders, I would really really like to see an example."

Exactly how does Obama have the track record of a person who will be able to understand the feelings of the middle classes?

I didn't  miss the link. However it's not applicable to the statement that the WSJ is biased and "such isn't likely to point out any flaws or fallacies in either Romney or his policies, particularly now that he's the heir-apparent of the GOP. "

If one is going to make such a claim, they should have some proof to support it, as someone told me several times, "the onus of proof is on the one making the claim".

So, I am still waiting for proof  to back-up that bold statement.

I'll post it again and highlight the relevant part:

Continuing to ask for a link to something that is someone's opinion (and that person has specifically stated that it was opinion) is harassment.

Exactly!  Neither Obama nor Romney.  Unfortunately one has experience at the job and the other will have to learn it.  Neither has the vision nor do I expect any of the politicians to truly comprehend what is needed: stability.

  There are some who are working wisely:

That is a start.

  The era of greed needs to end so this nation can heal an move forward.

I gave you a response.  As we have discussed before, an opinion is an opinion.  If you have proof to refute that opinion, by all means, serve it forth.  Otherwise, this looks like an instance of badgering.

In any event, I was wrong about the negative statements.  Apparently Murdoch is none too pleased with Mr. Romney: 

"Team Obama is now opening up a new assault on Mr. Romney as a job outsourcer with foreign bank accounts, and if the Boston boys let that one go unanswered, they ought to be fired for malpractice," the paper wrote.

The Romney campaign did not respond to a request for comment, but the editorial comes just days after Rupert Murdoch, the paper's owner, posted a message on Twitter calling for Romney to fire his campaign team. He later wrote that the Romney team was "upset" with him for the message, but insisted they should listen to "good advice."

Hi, everyone...me again!

When posting to a debate board, keep in mind someone may ask you for proof of a statement, if it is available. Asking for that proof is not harassment. However, asking repeatedly isn't necessarily the best way to debate either. Nudging them over and over is disruptive to the conversation and can indeed be seen as badgering; instead, you may just need to move on to debate another point of the topic. If posts are disruptive, we will remove them. Please keep in mind when posting that someone may ask you for a link and that if another poster is unable to share a link, or it is an opinion, be forgiving as well as it may be your own fact/opinion questioned next.

This is another interesting and long debate with many turns and twists; let's keep it respectful, and within our Terms of Service, on all levels.

Thanks...carry on! :smileywink:
Donna
