    I might vote for Obama if he had Ryan for a running mate.

  2. Julius Orth says:

    It’s spooky…it’s like he is looking right through me…like I don’t exist…like I don’t matter…and then he’s asking me to vote for him.

  3. danny cotta says:

    Paul Ryan, I hope I don’t lose the election.

  4. Dennis Anderson says:

    Look Eddie Haskull is back on T.V.

  5. John Gianfermi says:

    “I can’t tell if thats Paul Ryan or Steve Carell from The 40 Year-Old Virgin?”

  6. John Claeys says:

    I’m feeling a little light headed, I think I’m IN LOVE! Or maybe ‘just exhausted…..

  7. Bob Charbonnier says:

    He’s the picture of health. Why would he be concerned about Medi-Care?

  8. richard smith says:

    Wow, look at that stare! I think he has Rom-nesia!

  9. Dale Stout says:

    I bet Big Bird just laid an egg.

  10. Steve Marshall says:

    Honey, I think he can hear us.

  11. Dan J Drummond says:

    He sounds like John Galt from Ayn Rand’s fiction novel, Atlas Shrugged. I think he wants the oppressed job creators to collapse society by “stopping the motor of the world”, because they are over taxed and over regulated. He seems to represent a hypothetical or otherwise imaginary society.

  12. Dan J Drummond says:

    Apparently he’s Big Birds replacement!

  13. Mark Berube says:

    Where’s the remote Dear? It’s time for a change.

  14. Richard Smith says:

    Oh look, there’s Romneys sidekick,” flip flop junior”!

  15. Rick says:

    If we weren’t sure how sincere Romney is about screwing the poor and middle class, picking this guy proves he is serious!

  16. Frank says:

    i guess Biden could use some Candy about now

  17. Dale Stout says:

    When Ryan lies, his ears wiggle. When Biden lies, he just smiles.

  18. Dale Stout says:

    Statistics lie, then there’s Joe Biden.

  19. Dale Stout says:

    Biden’s a sidekick, Ryan’s a VP.

  20. Dale Stout says:

    I bet the 47% vote 51% of the time.

  21. Dale Stout says:

    Do we vote for Romney~Ryan on social security, or Obama~Biden on national insecurity?

  22. Al Cohen says:

    “Again he is disagreeing with the President. Now he insists we need
    More horses and bayonets.”

  23. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan will help the US save face. Biden’s only good at making faces.

  24. Dale Stout says:

    Will he support women’s rights as well as Bill Clinton?

  25. Dale Stout says:

    Do you think Ryan could handle a Beer Summit as well as Biden?

  26. Dale Stout says:

    I can’t remember what a real VP is supposed to do.

  27. Bill Paris says:

    Can you tell when Ryan is lyin’?

  28. John Gianfermi says:

    “First there was the bad olympic coverage-now this. Can’t NBC get anything right?”

  29. 0 Representation says:

    I wonder to whom he is addressing dear, since we are on social security and part of his running mate’s dreaded 47%?

  30. 0 Representation says:

    Oh there’s the guy just looking to reverse women’s rights!

  31. 0 Representation says:

    Oh look! Not only is is nose growing.. so are his ears and his chin! I gues they don’t call him “Lyin’ Ryan” for nothing!

  32. Skippy says:

    Honey, why doesn’t that rude old drunk let this nice young fellow finish a sentence?

  33. Dan J Drummond says:

    Dear, I think it’s a new reality TV show staring the latest Republican Vice-presidential candidate. You know, like the Palin’s.

  34. James Bennett says:

    Why can’t we ever look smart in cartoons?
    We don’t even watch TV, we get our news from reading alternative media.

    They made me fat again too…

  35. Al Cohen says:

    Is it just me that sometimes wishes we only had radios?

  36. Bob Charbonnier says:

    I think he is about to take off his shirt and tie and is going to show us his pecs. What a guy.

  37. Julius Orth says:

    That’s that nice boy that came by the soup kitchen to have his picture taken. He told me his boss is going to close down these restaurants for all those government dependent victims.

  38. Julius Orth says:

    I always said cloning Reagan was a bad idea…something went terribly wrong.

  39. Julius Orth says:

    This is the scariest twilight zone show ever!!! Paul Ryan as President!!!

  40. Julius Orth says:

    Odd how the substance is the same with the volume on or off.

  41. richard smith says:

    He’d be perfect for a scary Halloween mask!

  42. Al Cohen says:

    I do agree with him, we need to do something different…A different channel.

  43. Al Cohen says:

    I don’t think we’re better off now,then we were four years ago.Four years ago we had Palin.

  44. richard smith says:

    This guy scares me. He makes Romney look like a liberal!

  45. Frank says:

    (commutator) Stunned by Bidens comment, Ryans expression clearly shows Marlarkey was a key word debate breaker

  46. ricand says:

    Duh…Foreign Policy, what’s that mean? Don’t vote for this idiot, he doesn’t care about the American people, especially if you are female..

  47. Dale Stout says:

    He doesn’t have Biden’s foot-in-mouth disease.

  48. Mark Bowman says:

    Uh-oh. Ryan froze up again. They should know better than to ask him a foreign policy question.

  49. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan reminds me of Ronald Reagan. Biden reminds me of Howard Dean, yee-haw!

  50. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan’s no Joe Biden…thank goodness.

  51. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan’s a cheesehead. Biden’s just cheesy.

  52. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan has moral character. Biden’s a character without morals.

  53. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan has more hope and change than Biden has hope of changing.

  54. Dale Stout says:

    Ryan’s Presidential material. Biden’s just vice material.
