Do You Believe Paul Ryan is Qualified to Be President?

A vice president is said to be just a heartbeat away from the presidency. So if a Romney/Ryan ticket were to win the White House in November, would Paul Ryan be qualified to step up if the need arose?

We're now on the last day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., and the final stretch of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's campaign for the White House. Wednesday, we got to hear Ryan's speech. It was designed to show us just who he is and why he is qualified to be vice president. But the bigger question is, should the need arise, is he qualified to be president?

In the 2008 election, one of the arguments by those who didn't vote for John McCain was that they didn't believe his vice president pick, Sarah Palin, was qualified. And now, some of those who are critical of the current administration question what would happen should Vice President Joe Biden ever be given the reigns at the White House.

So our question on this last day of the RNC is, if a Romney/Ryan ticket is successful, is Paul Ryan qualified to take over as president should the need ever arise?

Tammy O. The encouragement we are sharing with each other IS contagious. If we all would just set aside our personal agendas, and attiude of "my way or no way" and start with" what is best for us all" at heart, a multitude of current issues would melt to the wayside. A little cooperation and consideration of others is the first step .Note I didn't say go belly up, I said look for the common ground that will benefit us as a whole, There is no "ME" in "TEAM".

Who lied? This is from the Janesville Gazette, but I suppose the folks in the town where the plant is actually located didn't really know what was occurring in town, did they? http://gazettextra.com/weblogs/latest-news/2009/apr/19/gm-plant-close-week/

Atina...if you think our current President is qualified, then I have to wonder if you are qualified enough to be taken seriously on this post! Better yet, do you think our current VP is qualified to be VP? Seriously? If so you must have never heard him speak!

Atina, after last night's debate, are you ready to see what the more eloquent of the two does to his incumbent contemporary on the 11th?
