Ryan in Ohio Mocks Biden: ‘As Joe Biden Might Say, It’s Great to Be Here in Nevada’ By Melanie Hunter August 16, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s running mate, mocked Vice President Joe Biden Thursday while campaigning in Ohio, by saying “as Joe Biden might say, it’s great to be here in Nevada.”

Ryan, speaking at a rally at Walsh University in North Canton, said, “It’s great to be here in North Canton, or as Joe Biden might say, it’s great to be here in Nevada.”

As CNSNews.com reported, Biden on Tuesday told Virginians at a campaign stop in Danville, Va., which is close to the North Carolina border, “With you, we can win North Carolina again. And if we do, we win the election if we win you.”

ROFL!

Any ridicule of the moron Biden who purposely “mismanaged” the Porkulus funds is ridicule I support.

At least they are out there working for this election. It seems like they want to actually win not like in 2008. I think Ryan is a lot like Sarah in the “fight” department. It is good to see it. Of course, once again, I am voting for the Vice President. Maybe one day I can go back to voting for the actual President....well see.

RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)
RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)
RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)
RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)
RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

“0bama isn’t very smart, actually, but ask your average sheeperal and they’ll say he’s brilliant.”

They aren’t wrong. When one has an IQ of 70-75, then someone with an IQ of 95 IS brilliant. I know many here will disagree and think I’m generous, but I seriously think Obama is at about 95, below the “isn’t very smart” range.

Come on people! You don’t mess with Joe! That’s what Obama told us when he appointed him to his phony something-something council at the state of the union a couple years back!

You left out: "Tell lies...if you tell a lie often enough, people will start to believe it."
That's Obama's specialty.

Half the population is below average. The average IQ is (by definition) 100, and about 95% of the population falls in the range 70-130 (+/- two standard deviations). That means there are a whole lot of ‘room temperature IQ’ folks wandering around out there.

Oh, he might even be above average, even up to about 15-20 pts, but he’s no genius, as most on the left claim he is.

My experience with liberals is that, lacking/rejecting a relationship with their Creator, they derive their sense of self worth through what other creatures think of them.
This is why they “advocate” policies and support “brilliant” people - to get the accolades of their peers.

You have a point. I look for the networks to report to night that Ryan said: “It’s great to be here in North Canton, . . . Nevada.”

Good. I'm tired of getting our candidates getting their white-glove, tactically-ignorant a$$e$ kicked by the leftist radicals.

Yes indeed - there is no way to respond to Ryan's poke without making it worse than it already is. It's that "Rule of Holes" thing.
