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.

"Are you talking about crazy bills in the House that would take away rights from women?"
Oh my goodness no, over 400 bills dealing with women's rights. How very funny. Some people realize that women are more than free bc and abortion, other's apparently not so much.
No, I'm talking about substantive bills, many of them aimed at improving the economy and the job's market. I'm also talking about budgets that passed the house over these 3 years.

And you did? On the basis of what precisely? Did you bother to listen to anything more than the one phrase?

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.

Last but not least, at least one of WSJ's science contributors is a sycophantic and dimwitted flunky who doesn't knew doodle about rems; but that's a whole 'nother topic.

What study/source proves the statement:

"The WSJ is a wholly-owned NewsCorp subsidiary and as 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. "

Neither "mergers" nor "acquisitions" necessarily mean loading the acquisition with debt and laying off most/all employees.

Huh.  I didn't see Biden's words as an attack on African Americans.  IMHO, he insinuated that a Romney presidency would free ("unchain") Wall Street at the risk of enslaving (my word, not Biden's) all of us to a system of private profit, but taxpayer-supported loss.  Yeah, his wording was insensitive and pretty stupid coming from a politician in a racially mixed setting.  I didn't defend it earlier and won't do so now.  But Biden is not in any position to make slaves of any of us.  

Akin, on the other hand,  is well known to be a social conservative.  Many of those conservatives have shown the lay of the political landscape to come, by the legislation they have proposed, including the "personhood" of a fertilized egg, their ongoing efforts to restrict abortion access, and the obstacles they have refused to dismantle which prevent women of child bearing age from procuring contraception.  Akin's stance towards women's rights is well known to those of us who live in Missouri, particularly those who knew/know him personally.  I do.

As for debating this in a separate thread, by all means do so if you wish.  And I shall post as I wish.

I believe in business it's called merger and acquisition.

 "So one doesn't have to prove something if another person has stated it and one is only echoing that person? Not how I was taught to think or debate"

 

I didn't say that I agreed with her, I only offered an opinion as to why it might be true.  I respect her observation and interpretation  and don't feel the need to demand proof from her. So, if you would like proof to substantiate her statement, perhaps you should ask her. 

No, I did not read the article to which you linked.
