Mitt Romney has made the prevention of President Barack Obama’s sequestration plan one of his primary campaign talking points.

Biden Unhinged in VP Debate, while Ryan exuded self-control

  Last night’s Vice Presidential debate did put more pressure on Vice President Biden, who was tasked with delivering the same old progressive talking points about taxes, foreign policy, abortion, and health care – albeit with a little more spiritedness.  However, the pervasive grinning, smiling, and interrupting came off as egregiously arrogant and condescending.  Biden conveyed a “I’m gonna kill ...
