Did anyone else out here take last night's comment.........

by Paul Ryan as an insult. The comment was when the moderator asked the VP what he meant by "stuff" the VP as I watched him I think was trying to stifle the phrase BS, and Ryan piped in with "he's Irish". Taken by me (even though Ryan is of Irish descent himself), to mean he's (Biden) is angry & that's because he's Irish.

I think that Ryan is too far removed from his Irish roots to understand that this was an insult. Also I think that Ryan disrespected the VP by referring to him as Joe, and to the President as Obama sans any title Mr. or President.

Wanted to add that I'm a 2nd generation American of Irish descent. I never knew my grandparents, but my Great Aunt Katie still had her Irish brogue, and my Dad, Uncles and Aunt had stories of what is what like growing up as 1st generation Americans of Irish descent in Philadelphia.

1. Yes, he is just one rude young jerk

so bred and fed by the hateful lies of the GOP that he thinks nothing of it.

These are the real dividends of 24/7 hate radio for almost 30 years.

2. My first reaction also was that it was insulting.

 



BTW, President Obama has a bit of Irish in him

3. I find it more distrubing that Ryan has Irish roots.
