On "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI) previews the highly anticipated vice presidential debate, and says he expects Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan will have a healthy debate on the budget.
We hear a lot from the special interests about the "failed" stimulus from the Obama administration. We hear about how Obama borrowed money an then "wasted" it. Why don't we hear about what might have happened were there no stimulus?
The people who were unemployed at that time and got an unemployment check to help them feed their family probably would not agree the money was wasted.
I find it shocking the lengths you will to go to beat up on the Republican party and fabricate silly untruths to try to demonize Mr. Romney. I watched your program today grilling the RNC Chairman and found it an incredible wasted effort to try to make Mitt Romney look bad on such a controversial topic. You defend yourself as impartial, but I think you approach your interviews with extreme prejudice and that is very disheartening. As a Canadian with many American friends I feel sad for the current state of your country and for our common future. I am 44yrs old and I have witnessed many US elections, but never one as nasty, dishonest and downright disgusting as this one. I am a husband and a father and I have great hopes for the future of my children. I have never seen Americans so divided and polarized as they are today and those in government must find some way to compromise on important issues that affect all Americans and the rest of the world. I'm not going to say who I would vote for, but personally I believe in free-enterprise and less government as the best recipe for a successful economy and a free society. My one request for you is this: when you approach your job and your interviews, please try to do so in a way which is genuinely impartial. The eyes of the world are watching you and your colleagues everyday.
