MAN, I WISH Joe Biden were president!

BIDEN LOOKED liked the symbol of his party in the debate, a grinning jackass.

I DON'T BLAME Obama for Fast and Furious or Libya. I blame his incompetent and corrupt administration. Why have Holder and others not been fired?

PRESIDENT OBAMA took down Bin Laden. Mitt Romney vows to take down Big Bird. Now, that's leadership.

THE "MORMON" issue? In typical hypocritical Christian fashion, Mormonism was sinful four years ago when Romney faced McCain but it's the Holy Grail now.

REP. DESJARLAIS and fellow Republicans are good at preaching family values, just not good at practicing them.

WHAT HAS Fleischmann done for his 3rd District constituents besides sitting on John Boehner's shoulder parroting Republican obstructionism?

SURE, ANDY BERKE loves the Democrat Party when it benefits him. Vote for, but not endorse Andrae McGary. Talk about self-serving.

POLK COUNTY'S population in 2010 was 16,825. The county has eight post offices and we wonder why the Postal Service is going broke.

A 40-POUND pygmy goat would be preferable to my neighbor's dogs. It's a pet, not livestock. Get a grip, East Ridge.

USDA, YOU can't force kids to eat what they don't like, healthy or otherwise. Quit wasting money making them take things they just throw away!

I cannot determine how TFP decides which rants to publish. I sent this rant (which TFP did not publish) last week:

The photo op showing Paul Ryan washing clean pots and pans at a homeless shelter evidences a complete lack of character.

I sent this rant (which TFP did not publish) following well-publicized discussions of the Simpson-Bowles proposal to deal with the federal budget deficits:

Former Senator Alan Simpson [Simpson-Bowles] nailed it: Congress can’t deal with tough issues because the members of Congress “worship the God of Re-election.”

I sent this rant (which TFP did not publish) after the TFP article about BlueCross BlueShield, a so-called not-for-profit company, making a so-called charitable contribution:

How dare BCBS of Tennessee give away $8.2 million instead of returning it to those who paid insurance premiums or better still, lowering the premiums!

I thought the rants were topical and timely. Either the editors of TFP thought otherwise, or they have their own agenda.

yddem, I have the same question. Thanks for bringing it up. I submitted the following topical rants, which have been ignored by the TFP:

"Romney doesn't trust us with information about his tax returns for the last 10 years. How can anyone trust him with the nation?"

"Obama hasn’t kept all his political promises; that’s disappointing. Romney plans to win by hiding tax returns and lying about recent history; that’s despicable."

  The TFP prints an over-abundance of mean-spirited Republican rants, while discarding those of Democrats.
