Response to shanen (Original post)

Sun Aug 12, 2012, 09:14 PM

89. Hells to the no!

Biden is much better suited to taking on Ryan IMHO- he can speak with the most authority on middle-/working-class concerns, plus he can show Ryan up on foreign policy. He's EXACTLY who we need in that debate and on the stump. Anyway, Obama changing his VP pick in response to Ryan would send the message that we're desperate/worried and that is NOT what we need now (and it's not true in any event) We need consistency and stability and Obama/Biden have been a great time for the past 4 years. No reason whatsoever to change that now. The debates between Joe and Paul are going to be delicious- though probably nowhere near as fun as the ones between Barack and Mitt. Game on!
