"I thought it was just fantastic, and of course there's nobody that does a better job on the budget and the fiscal cliff issues than Paul Ryan," says Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.).
"He ran from almost every question, we didn't get an answer on their tax plan no matter how hard both the moderator and the Vice President pushed," says the Obama/Biden Campaign's David Axelrod.
"We didn't hear a plan from Joe Biden," says Diane Black (R-Tenn.). "As usual, we're back to the same platitudes and no plan."
"Joe Biden came to this with passion, conviction, and the facts, and look at the end of the day, Paul Ryan couldn't dance away from the tax cut, from Medicare, from even privatizing Social Security," says Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois).

TBI: Women more likely family violence victims
June 20, 2013 08:10 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new study of domestic violence in Tennessee last year found women were nearly two times more likely to be victimized than men and children were the victims in 16 percent of all family violence cases.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put out a report this week analyzing crime statistics from law enforcement agencies across the state. Their findings show that nearly 15 percent of all crimes reported were domestic in nature.
The study looked at the relationships between victims and offenders as well as the influence of drugs and alcohol on family violence. The study found that more than 17 percent of family violence involves drugs or alcohol, with alcohol being the most common.
