Biden (as most have stated) is a bully. One thing that upset me more than Biden bullish behavior was the Moderator interrupting Ryan in the middle of his argument. Ryan had good points. Something just wasn't right. It seemed as if she was attempting to protect Biden the clown. I believe she planned it as such.
Yeah. I was infuriated by Raddatz. Every time Ryan got to the last sentence where he was going to bring home his point, Raddatz slammed him down and talked over him. She also phrased questions towards Ryan that showed her liberal bias. She pushed Ryan with pointed and adversarial follow ups. I can not think of a similar attempt to hole Biden at all accountable.
I think the GOP would do itself a favor, and choose their debate forums a little more carefully in the future. There is no law that says these vintage TV networks are the only place for a debate. Maybe they could choose a place, like C-Span and have people who really know what the country is about to do the debates. People like the Heritage Foundation, Cato Institute, Mark Levin, and some others. People would get to see some professional people asking real questions.
It's time to stop agreeing to debates with the vintage TV. They aren't where it's at anymore. They're tired, and just stuck in their own little world. They just aren't very smart. They come off as silly.
She was terrible. Terrible to listen to, and she doesn't have a face for TV. Sorry, it's true. She looked like an angry, mean, woman. I think all of the women of the left are, aren't they?
I love this from the front page of Drudge.
Biden, Ryan at each other on everything...
CNN POLL: R 48% B 44%...
Chris Wallace: I've never seen a candidate as disrespectful as Biden...
Borger: Came Off As Condescending...
Hume: 'Cranky Old Man'...
Noonan: 'The old man pushed, and the kid pushed back'...
Biden Interrupted Ryan 82 Times?
Raddatz -- 31 times... AP: 'Laugh, chuckle, grimace, grin, smirk, goofy face'...
RNC AD: THE LAUGHTER...
CNN: Raddatz 'the third debater'...
REALCLEAR MAP SHOWS SHIFT...
I can't even listen to the liberal drivel today. I turned on Fox and listened as long as I could -switched the channel to NatGeo Wild. The left is gushing over the rude bully tactics of both Biden and the biased moderator.
It is amazing to me that people like Biden and others have remained in politics as long as they have, and that people never stop voting for them. Clearly, this man is a mental patient.
Biden was off his meds, but on something illegal, "perhaps" ;) After being coached 24/7 for a week, the dolt had to cover his idiocy with arrogance......
IT IS NOT FUNNY _ lying, interrupting, lying, interrupting and lying again!!!
Too bad Ryan wasn't watching his grimaces - he might have said: I IT NOT FUNNY when you ruin our country and cover it with lies"...
What an oaf Biden is.
I'm glad Ryan was patient. I would have called the orderlies out to sedate Biden mid way through that debate.
Mark is absolutely right about the debate. I sum it up this way:
Biden won because
1) He was allowed to talk and finish his thoughts
2) Ryan let them go on to the next topic without refuting the crap Biden said
3) The moderator cut Ryan off a little too often
Biden lost because
1) He looked like the Cheshire Cat or the Joker
2) He was contemptuous, rude, inconsiderate, and looked insane at times
3) He was on the wrong side of almost every position
Overall, though... Ryan looked/sounded timid at times and Biden commanded control of the debate - with the moderator helping.
The ONE Word Missing From The Debate
Last night's Vice Presidential Debate will probably be remembered most for Vice President Biden's smarmy attitude and off putting,maniacal grin.
Paul Ryan came off as competent and polite while Biden's japery (look it up Democrats) was an attempt to compensate for the malaise of Obama's somnambulist act in the first debate.
Sad to say neither candidate dared to utter the word "immigration" or even "illegal immigration' in the context of all their talk about unemployment.
How can anyone allow a single illegal alien to steal jobs,recieve benefits for themselves and their children and lower wages for Americans when the nation is suffering under such massive unemployment?
I believe it was Washington Times writer Sam Francis who said there is "The Evil Party (democrats) and the Stupid Party (Republicans)"
The GOP has a golden opportunity to crush Obama with his open borders/Administrative Amnesty policy. A policy opposed by over 75% of American voters.
Why the silence GOP?
They are waiting for the opposition to mention it. 0 and the MSM have been dictating the continual flow of nonsensical topics since day 1. The most recent opportunity Romney had was the Embassy attacks so the Left and MSM make it out to be Romney politicizing the attack (which I've read to be an INCIDENT). My opening sentence was out of pure sarcasm but, Romney does need to get in front of some issues before the election. Each issue brought up seems to take up 2-3 days of headlines (debates included), We need to get out on at least 2 issues and win both debates. We need to dictate the tack of the campaign a bit more. With all that HS out of the way, I like where we're sitting...... As long as the ballots are tallied right.
Biden is a cocktail of stupidity, drugs and alcohol. As he doesn't have anything to run on, the only thing can do is to run away from the issues and discredit others by laughing and smirking. The same is true for Bossama and Hillary.
This was a typical liberal debate. Event. Make up the rules. 2 minutes each to respond. Don't follow the rules. Sound familiar? Make up the tax code. Don' t follow it. Make up rules of senate. Don't follow them.
I recorded the debate and would decide this morning if it was worth watching based on the comments of those who did watch it. Thank you for the rundown and now I will erase it from my DVR.
Am.Sp. - Jeffrey Lord, quote-
"Ronald Reagan was not impressed with Joe Biden.
In fact, writing in his diary in his usual abbreviated style on June 15, 1987, Reagan described Biden this way:
"He's smooth but pure demagog - out to save America from Reagan Doctrine."
That was a year after Reagan made a note about Biden and Senators Ted Kennedy and Howard Metzenbaum, who were busy making vitriolic attacks on TV about Reagan's nominee for Chief Justice of the United States, then Associate Justice William Rehnquist. Wrote Reagan: "They really are a lynch mob." unquote
Biden hasn't changed 1 iota from what he was then, to what he still is- a political character assassination hack, which toxic obnoxious fumes emanate from him like stink from a dead carcass.
Biden looked and acted like a condedsending, rude old man. He as well as the moderator cut off Ryan several times. I have never seen a vice presidential debate like this. Biden show'd no respect for Ryan. I give Ryan credit he didn't lose his cool and he made Biden looked like the real fool that he is. Biden had BHOs talking points down pat. The moderator was totally in the tank for Biden. Biden you lost Ryan won.
A friend of mine told me that :"Debating Biden is like playing chess with a pigeon, no matter how good you are at chess, that bird will just knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and then strut around as if it had won" LMAO! Biden all the way.
I was so livid after this debate! Biden was such a jerk, I was just yelling at the tv for him to shut up! Ryan knows his stuff and if it was a real debate, all those watching would know it. Instead, Biden has nothing, so he has to try and get points by being an obnoxious boob!
To be honest, after just a little bit of biden's nasty behavior, I couldn't even concentrate on what they were talking about anyway. I was so mad and put off with how condescending he was and his lies, that's all I could focus on! The VP slot is too good for him. He didn't deserve it before, and definitely not again. Your a piece of work joe Biden.
If a man with the back ground, history, and experience of Joe Biden cannot beat a young man like Ryan it means Obama/Biden has nothing new to offer. They have turned themselves into yesterdays dirty laundry.
Ryan slaughtered Biden by not buckling to his nonsense. As for me, I would have gotten up and bitch slapped the Vice President and had my butt dragged off to jail (for good reason.)
My hat goes off to Ryan for not being me.......
Ryan answered many times that there has to be a bipartisan effort made and Biden showed nothing but distain for it through the whole debate which is one of the reasons why we are where we are. Biden showed his ass once again with his "my way or the highway" attitude.
Ryan's attitude will win many more independents to our side by doing this.
I watched as much as I could stomach (which was a little more than one hour of it), and what I saw was that the moderator really didn't 'moderate' anything. The bulk of her questions were directed toward Ryan -- there was very little of substance directed toward Say it ain't so Joe -- so I gave up in fatigue from it all.
The sad state of affairs is that after 4 years of 0b0/0biden there are so many undecided who think a debate will give them some clarity on who would be the best leader for the USA.
If they haven't been affected by the last 4 years, 40 hours of debate will not help make up their mind.
What can I do to get the image of those huge fricking teeth out of my mind. He was creeping me out. The plugs are looking pretty worn out too. Would make a pretty freaky holloween mask.
None of these debates matter . Noone is changing their mind . We will have a new president by a landslide .
Did anyone catch Joe using the phrase "Obamanation" ? and how about those 180,000 households.....what was he talking about? Fairfax County?
Biden is the epitome of the level to which the demoncrats have demeaned the office of VPOTUS. Zero has done the same to the office of POTUS.
I've had enough of these two against one arguments. Once I heard that blabbermouth chick going on about "Do we want another war in the Middle East?", as if the only choice is between Democrat peace and Republican war, I found the mute button very handy.
No one really votes for vp anyway. So while we all know Ryan could have trounced Biden, he played it cool to avoid any gaffes. So mission accomplished.
Ryan was calm, intelligent, unintimidated by the antics and focused. He did well considering what he was up against. He got the message through and defended and represented the ticket well.
Biden was an ass.
