Veep wars: Biden, Ryan blitz the airwaves

Rush Limbaugh

“El Rushbo” spent much of this week praising Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate, especially since Ryan is such a stark contrast to current Vice President Joe Biden, who Rush refers to as “Bite Me.”

On the campaign trail, Biden “doesn’t even know where he is,” laughed Limbaugh, who added that the Ryan pick seems to have energized the base – not to mention Romney himself (FREE audio).

Michael Savage

In contrast, Michael Savage told listeners this week, “This is the end of the Romney campaign,” after Mitt Romney made Paul Ryan his vice presidential pick for the GOP ticket.

“As good a man as he is,” Savage explained, “Ryan will be portrayed by the Marxists as another rich white male who wants to ruin the environment, destroy Medicaid and Social Security and give tax breaks to the very rich. It’s all over.”

Turning to Obama, Savage compared the president to a cult leader, like “a Jim Jones or a Baghwan Shree Rajneesh.

“Bhagwan Shree Obama is the head guru, who instead of driving 13 Rolls-Royces, drives Air Force One, Two and Three and the U.S. military,” Savage said.

Warming to his theme, Savage joked darkly, “The only thing Obama’s not given to members of the Democratic Party is the Kool Aid.”

Aaron Klein

This week, investigative broadcaster Aaron Klein analyzed what Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as running mate meant in terms of economics, with Dan Mitchell of the CATO Institute.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach also joined Klein to talk about his campaign for Congress, specifically his Democratic opponent, who Boteach accuses of being anti-Israel. Klein also unveiled exclusive information regarding the nation of Syria, which seems to being repositioning its stock of chemical weapons (FREE audio).

Sean Hannity

Paul Ryan joined Sean Hannity to talk about a number of subjects, including Joe Biden’s latest racially charged remarks and other gaffs.

“We’ve gone from hope and change to anger and division, blame and attack,” Ryan noted (FREE audio).

Sean Hannity tried (unsuccessfully) to educate a brainwashed, hysterical – and rude – Democratic voter who was completely mistaken about everything from Reagan’s tax cutting record to Paul Ryan’s Medicare reforms (FREE audio).

Mark Levin

“Obama is the greatest political child abuser in modern American history!”

That was Mark Levin’s provocative declaration this week, as he noted, “This election is not about us. It’s not about parents and grandparents. This election is about our children and grandchildren” (FREE audio).

“People are getting sick and tired of Obama,” Levin declared when he guested on Neil Cavouto’s daily Fox Business report (FREE video).

“They know what’s going on in unemployment. They know they’re losing their private health care policies. They know they’re losing their homes,” Levin said. “They know that this guy is indebting their kids to God knows what.”

Laura Ingraham

White Castle is one of America’s top fast food chains. However, the company’s Vice President Jamie Richardson joined Laura to talk about how Obama’s presidency has negatively impacted his business. Case in point: White Castle’s costs have gone up nearly 27 percent since the passage of Obamacare.

Glenn Beck

Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan for vice president shows how serious he is “about fixing the economy and shrinking government,” Glenn Beck said on Monday (FREE video).

And now, from the left side of the dial …

Liberals often boast about their affection for “lost causes,” but this week two of the nation’s highest profile lefties picked a real doozie: defending gaffe-prone VP Joe Biden as he stumbled along the campaign trail.

Disgraced public figures Eliot Spitzer and Al Sharpton both fell all over themselves sticking up for Biden while guesting on progressive talk radio. As Brian Maloney of Radio Equalizer noted, these two were forced to “walk the plank for the embattled second-in-command” – and neither were very convincing.

Race baiter extraordinaire Sharpton claimed he didn’t see anything “hateful” in Biden’s bizarre charge that Romney would put black citizens “back in chains.” Spitzer dismissed the controversy as “worse than silliness” (FREE audio).

We’ll have to wait until November to learn whether or not millions of voters agreed with both men.
