Team O: Which of Paul Ryan’s “highly misleading habits” will we see this evening?

Oh, honestly. Obama’s people are certainly putting out that message that Vice President Biden is “fired up and ready to go” for tonight’s debate, but clearly they felt the need to get in a few little preemptive jabs at his challenger Paul Ryan — could it be that they don’t have enough confidence in Biden’s abilities alone to get the job done? I found this video in my inbox in an e-mail from Stephanie Cutter and the Truth Team, imploring me to “share it with others” before tonight’s debate:
Puh-lease. Let’s not pretend that Obama & company doesn’t know anything about “the casual fib,” “tainted timeline gambits,” “flat-out falsehoods,” “the ‘math is a matter of opinion‘ technique,” the “‘get the heck out of dodge‘ dodge,” “the senior scare,” or the “discredited double-down” tactics.
And while this vid steers clear of using the term “liar” in reference to Ryan, it’s obviously what they’re implying. Whatever happened to Obama waging a campaign free of vitriol and personal attacks? Megyn Kelly put that question to Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt on America Live today — do I detect LaBolt using the “‘get out of dodge’ dodge” tactic there? Just look at the perfect technique!
