Axelrod & Plouffe Figure Out How to Win VP Debate

Paul Ryan, sample quote on the economy:

“So my question is,” Ryan asked the president, “Why not start freezing spending now, and would you support a line item veto in helping us get a vote on it in the House?”

Obama: “Let me respond to the two specific questions, but I want to just push back a little bit on the underlying premise about us increasing spending by 84%.”

The president went on for a bit, but when Ryan regained the floor, he did not back down: “The discretionary spending, the bills that Congress signs that you sign into law, has increased 84%.”

The president, clearly not happy, shut it down: “We’ll have a longer debate on the budget numbers, all right?” [CNN]

Joe Biden, sample quote on the economy:

“The number one job facing the middle class and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word – J-O-B-S, jobs.” Biden comment during a campaign event in Athens, Ohio in 2008.

I can’t wait for the debates guys.
