Joe Biden blew it.
But it's going to take a few days for that to become clear.
For all the energy the vice president showed at the Kentucky debate -- and God knows his ticket needed it -- his "Saturday Night Live"-skit performance Thursday night obscured anything of substance said on stage -- other than his charge that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, never asked for more security, which appears to be untrue.

The Benghazi controversy is getting more serious by the day. The Obama administration has a real problem there, and the vice president carelessly fed it more questions.

There is no question that Thursday night was the "Joe Biden Show." For the Obama campaign, that's the problem.

its a shame that the person who is 2nd in charge of our country could look into the camera and LIE to the people of the United States. He claimed that he and Obama received bad info about Benghazi from others but isn't it true that the others were all appointed by this administration. Looks like a duck sounds like a duck its a duck---looks like a liar sounds like a liar its a shameful vice president

"He claimed that he and Obama received bad info about Benghazi from others but.....", you wrote.

This is true. The Big Mouth VP claims that he and the Jerk-In-Chief received bad Intelligence about Libyan Security but he later on yells at Ryan that our Intelligence says Iran doesn't yet have Nuclear capability. "That's a fact!", he says.

So, bad intelligence about security in Libya but good Intelligence in Iran, hey, Joe Blow? Pick and choose which Intelligence you want, Idiot-With-The White-Teeth-And-Big-Mouth.

This man has no business being VP of the United States of America. He belongs in a Used Car Lot in lower Manhattan.

Biden made a Fool of himself in several ways. This is but one. He claimed that Obamacare will not force anybody to go against their religious beliefs at any hospital. Well, gee wiz, Hair-Plug Joe, why are religious groups in court suing your wonderful administration and what for? Bishops today took out full-page newspaper ads knocking the idiot VP for his lying in the debate. Also, the administration is desperately trying to distance themselves from Biden's embarrassing debate remarks that he and the President had no idea about the security risks and requests at that Libyan Consulate. Yep, Hair-Plug Joe just made one of the most inept administrations in American history look even more inept. But the Lying Liberal Media believes Biden won the debate last night.
Martha whats-her-name-radditz was useless studio flotsam while Big Mouth Biden cut off Ryan's allotted times for response over one hundred times. Big Mouth Biden played to the cameras like he was in purview of a Chimpanzee Exhibit's Security Camera.
Washington Post - Fact Check: Biden Goes A Bit Far On Birth Control - 10/11/12:

The Obama Administration Has Yet To Come Up With An Accommodation For Religious Groups So That They Will Not Pay For Contraceptive Coverage.

The Obama administration said in March that it will come up with an accommodation for religiously affiliated employers that self-insure, but it has not yet decided how to handle that seven months later.

...So basically, Joe insisting his claim was "a fact" was another falsehood.

Actually, they don't, do they?

They can afford the best plan with the best coverage without needing government subsidies.

That's the whole point.

But it's having a choice between less coverage but with full government subsidies or choosing an affordable plan with less government subsidies but better coverage.

Ryan did not specify the “loopholes” he would close to pay for the deficit, so we have no idea about the dollar values of the specific loopholes. That’s the missing math.
I should have also emphasized that while loopholes being closed means the wealthy will pay more in taxes and with more people working, the government will take in more revenues...also the Romney/Ryan administration will tackle the waste and duplication in government, cut back on spending to what is absolutely necessary and will allow states to take care of their own specific needs without the federal government micromanaging everything and everyone. Another way capitalism works when it's done right.

Government revenue is the income of a government from all sources used to pay for a nation's expenses.

If the government doesn't receive enough revenue, we have to keep borrowing more money.

Increasing revenue is the whole point. It's not the same as making government bigger.

The more people working and paying taxes, the more revenue the government takes in, the more it can pay its expense, the less money it has to borrow and the more it can decrease the deficit.

It also works better when people can keep more of their own money. They not only spend more to keep the economy going but many give more too.

But there has to be jobs and government incentives for businesses to hire instead of cutting back and firing like they are now.

Another reason to vote Romney/Ryan.

Okay, night.

Biden said "Mitt Romney said let Detroit go bankrupt, period."
FACT: Romney wrote an article in the NY Times saying, "The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing. A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.
In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check."

The New York Times took the liberty to title it misleadingly.
Left myth: GM did not go bankrupt.

Yes, they did. What the US government did was insert itself the chapter 11 reorganization.

Another Left myth- this is a dumb one usually by lily hyperventilating about underwear.

Left Myth: ALL Mormons wear a special undergarment.

False. Only Mormons married in the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City are given the right to wear this temple undergarment. Other members of the church not married there wear regular undergarments.

Mitt and Ann were married at Ann's house. So, lily stop worrying about their underwear.

My guess is that [Romney-R is 4 the rich] is at about 8th Grade level and trying to break into adulthood prematurely.

He needs to stay in the oven for another 15-20 years before hitting Prime Time.
