That was kind of fun watch Biden beat himself senseless last night in the debate.
there is only one word to describe Biden's behavior, buffoon.

Ryan did a great job in battling the tag team of Raddatz and Biden to a stalemate.

in the old days of journalistic integrity, someone like Raddatz who had Obama to her wedding would have come right out front with that information rather then hide it,

and in the old days of journalistic integrity debate moderators like Raddatz would have gone out of their way to be non biased, now not only was raddatz aggressive in attacking Ryan, she may actually get an award for it,

journalistic integrity is a thing of the past when it comes to the corrupt mainstream media.

frankly this is on us, if we demanded journalistic integrity we would right now not be watching ABC at all, to send a message that we expect their news people to be non biased, and until they lose the biased media people, we will not watch their channel,

that is the only way to repair the corrupt mainstream media.

i can just imagine what biased questions the Gallup poll is picking out for the next debate, but i know what the people want to ask,

President obama, since you took office as senator in 2006, and continueing with your being president starting in 2008, you have overseen horrendous economic times with long term high unemployment, despite you spending trillions of dollars, a large amount of which included payoffs to cronies and supporters,

yet in the face of such high unemployment you spent a year ramming through healthcare, and have spent years demonizing job producing companies such as bain capital and small businesses, and in fact a large part of your reelection campaign is based on more job killing tax increases to small businesses,

why on earth would any american want to vote for you for president.

You right wingers might be better served to just keep your fox news drivel to yourselves. Every time you write something you expose more of your inability to think for yourselves and your reliance on the tin hat far right media to tell you what to think. Normal people get a laugh out of it, but it's getting harder and harder to take any of you seriously anymore. Don't you know that we have access to the same crappy sources that you paraphrase here? We all know the sources of your insanity.

Appeared to me that Obama clearly wasn't on his game but didn't actually do any complete reversals of his positions as Romney did. And I know you prefer visuals over facts, but Biden wiped the floor with Ryan. And he did it in the way you right wingers approve of when one of your clowns do it. Oh well.

Raddatz and Biden double teamed Paul Ryan, and between them contrived to prevent him from completing any statement!
Then they have the nerve to say that Ryan didn't give any "specifics"
Between Biden and Raddatz, they interrupted Paul Ryan ONE HUNDRED and SIXTEEN TIMES in less than 90 minutes!

Biden lied about the Obama tax increases being only for people earning over $1 million (its always been $200K for Obama).

He also lied about religious organizations not being forced to fund abortions and contraceptive care (US Bishops today reiterated that and, among other groups, are suing the federal government over that).

Biden also told bald faced lies about the terrorist attack in Libya.

And, of course, he acted like a complete ass. That part was honest, since he is a complete ass, and he makes a fantastic case for congressional term limits.

Nope, sorry, you're wrong, as usual. Biden had major ownage on Ryan, big time. He pounded him like the little boy Ryan is. I won't bother to refute your right wing talking points, you guys don't read any other sources than fox or rush, etc.

Says you. I am wrong about the Obama tax cuts not kicking in at $200K?? Prove it.

I am wrong about PelosiCare not forcing religious institutes to fund abortion, and the Catholic Conference of Bishops suing the federal government?? Where do you get your news? Sharpton????

the corrupt mainstream media think we are so stupid that we don't see the obvious bias in their news and how they handled the debate.

raddatz acted as part of the Obama reelection team, the irony is that ABC and the rest of the corrupt media are paying the price as more and more people shut off these channels in favor of a fair and balanced approach.

i actually know quite a few people that are so angry that they are refusing to buy any products from companies advertising on these networks.

the corrupt media are destroying their own credibility and influence, as their number of viewers drop every year.

Biden hurt the Obama cause, the people are much smarter then the left wing zealots give us credit for, we all know Biden lied continually, and we all realize how much of a buffoon he acted like, and how hard the media are working to try to help Obama,

it is all backfiring, if anything they are all making it worse for Obama, and the longer they pull this garbage the better it is for Romney and the republicans.

your posts are just like your hero Obama's campaign, all personal attacks and no facts.

4 years in office and the Obama administration is so devoid of accomplishments that they can only run on personal attacks on Romney. and your posts show that you can not find any positive accomplishments to quote. what a disgrace.

Barack Obama is by far the worst president in American history.

Yes. Exactly.

I just saw that there will be no split screen tonight. I think that's because Obama looked stupid on split screen (looking down, smirking), and Biden looked totally unhinged.

So tonight, no split screen.

romney didn't do any reversals of positions, your problem is that since you actually believe the obama campaign's and corrupt media's representation of romney's positions rather then his real positions, you think he changed, but he is exactly where he has been all along.

"The United States simply cannot afford another four years of weak leadership. The genius of American capitalism and the moral authority of American foreign policy must be restored.

Mitt Romney has a plan to do both. He has the credentials to restore the economy and to defend American values in a hostile world. He has the skills to help create jobs and a brighter future for our country.

This election is a true turning point for the next generation. Mitt Romney is the change the nation needs. And he is the change New York needs."

i think you are right, the corrupt media are pulling out all the stops to help obama in this election, even adjusting their coverage.

i fully expect that no matter what happens in this debate they will declare obama the winner, but the bottom line is that it just doesn't matter anymore what the corrupt media say, people have totally lost all faith in them and realize how biased and corrupt they are, we will all come to our own conclusions, regardless of what the corrupt media say.

candy crowley as the representative of the corrupt mainstream media betrayed their agenda and violated the public trust tonight in her interjecting herself into the debate.

"Crowley bungled the facts in attempting to save Obama from his administration's dreadful bungling of the Libya situation. She owes the American people an apology for inserting herself into the debate in such an inappropriate and embarrassing fashion."

there are two words to simply sum up the Obama administration,
corrupt and incompetent,
everything they have done has been wrong other then the one raid on bin laden.
and now that Romney is in the race, we will see them lying everyday to win this election, and the lies will not stop with Obama and the democratic party alone,
the corrupt media will also be twisting the truth and frankly misrepresenting the truth in order to push Obama's candidacy,
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/09/29/msn...
and frankly this all starts with the teachers in the schools, everyday my son comes home and tells me what his teacher says, comments like Romney hates women, Romney lies, Romney will cut social security and medicare,
this is a big reason why our country has deteriorated, in my school days the big things that were pushed was honesty and integrity, honest Abe, George Washington and the cherry tree,
now the schools push dishonesty to push their agenda, with the democrats, and the corrupt media all joining in unison.
we need someone like Romney as president, a man who has been successful at creating jobs, and opportunities in order to get Americans back to work and our country back to prosperity, but the question is, can his campaign stand up to the lies and deceit of obama, the democrats, the corrupt media, and the unions.
And, it is very objective to describe the Obama Regime as "the most incompetent presidency in American History," in my opinion.

i totally agree that Obama is the most incompetent president in American history, and tonight Romney stood tall against the deceit of Obama and the corrupt media,

Crowley of CNN gave Obama almost 10% more time, constantly interrupted Romney such as when he talked about Obama blocking the investigation into fast and furious by executive privilege, and Crowley even misled the American people on Libya in order to defend Obama,

but Romney got his points across, and i think the American people heard them loud and clear.

Obama may have won tonight on aggression, but Romney won on substance and the people who watched definitely knew enough of the facts to know that Romney is the man to turn around our country, and fix the failures of the Obama administration.
