Here is video of National Rifle Association President David Keene stood up for the 2nd Amendment rights of every American in the face of unrelenting criticism by CBS News’ Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” today. Schieffer acted totally incredulous that the President of the NRA is not in favor of curtailing 2nd Amendment Rights! Keene countered Schieffer’s assertions again and again, reminding Schieffer that the “right to keep and bear arms” is a “Constitutional Right” of every American. At one point, Schieffer was at least honest when he prefaced what he said with, “Maybe it’s my bias. . .” That’s exactly right.
Here is the “Face the Nation” roundtable today discussing the impact of the first Presidential Debate. The clear consensus is that Mitt Romney won the debate, and Michael Gerson said the significance of it is that “he punctured a sterotype” about himself “in front of 70 million people.” The Democrats had worked for months and spent millions of dollars to build up that stereotype – and Gerson is right – Romney punctured it before the eyes of the nation. Gerson said Romney “stopped losing” with his debate performance, but did not win the election. There is still a lot to do.
NOTE: Notice toward the end of the roundtable that even the reporters agree that David Axelrod’s characterization of Mitt Romney as lying about his tax proposal is simply not true.
Here is video of GOP Vice-Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan on “Face the Nation” today where he said Barack Obama is a person who “says one thing and does another.” That’s particularly so when it comes to cutting the nation’s annual budget deficit, which Obama promised to cut in half during his first term. Instead, he has never brought forward a budget that even attempted to cut the deficit, and has actually ballooned it. Ryan said he and Mitt Romney are offering Americans “a better economic choice” for the future that will get the U.S. Economy “growing again.”
