Well, just like President Obama mopped the floor with Rmoney during their debate, Vice-President Biden mopped the floor with Lyin' Ryan last night. President Obama will mop the floor with Rmoney in the November election as well.

Or citation of the day. Take your pick.
If the actual debate was a toss up, the fact checking results clearly embarrass Ryan who again could find no way to explain how the Romney-Ryan tax cuts actually work. Worse is that the (R) clean up crew has muddied the waters further by explaining that congress must craft the details.

Ryan was wrong, or lying, right down the line.

Ryan really does look like Eddie Munster.

Many people have made negative comments about Vice-President Biden's teeth but nobody has commented on Lyin' Ryan's ears. Ok, I admit President Obama has a rather large pair, but this Ryan guy...geezz...we're talking taxi cab doors here. He is a very odd looking individual.

And yes if all black supporter don't get off their tails,and go down the block and vote for Obama,and he doesn't maintain that same percentages of whites,and non blacks,that won him the Presidency,then no,he won't win this time.
And to respond to your sarcastic remark,-you don't know jack about who or what I am,not do you know that I will be one who does not get out and vote,so you need to stick to making conclusions about what you know..

As one observer in the National Review said about the debate last night: "I am less concerned about the lack of a broad bipartisan consensus that Biden lost the debate than the lack of a broad bipartisan consensus that Biden lost his marbles."

Considering the total absence of bipartisanship on the part of this admnistration, the very recent and serious events of two terrorist attacks on our embassies on the anniversary of 9/11 resulting in the deaths of four Americans, the ineptness of this administration in responding to those attacks, the Middle East unraveling before our very eyes, a dismal economy that is barely limping along with major companies cutting back their employees to part-time to avoid the Obamacare mandates, a skyrocketing debt that doesn't seem to effect this administration or their compulsion to keep spending and 23 million people still out of work...what in the world did Joe Biden think was so funny?
Seriously. Can somebody tell me? I'd really like to know.

Interesting read.
Always enjoyed Juan Williams perspective and his good natured attitude. Got a real bad deal from NPR, Ug-Ly.

Anyway ...

Quote from the article:

"Biden can’t come off as condescending to Paul Ryan, who is 27 years his junior. Style and perception count big in debates – sometimes more than the facts. So Biden can’t look like he is lecturing Ryan or like a crotchety old man yelling at a young boy for treading on his lawn. If that is the image people take away from the debate, Biden will have lost".

From what's been reported, didn't Biden do exactly this ^^^ above mentioned?

Though I don't put much 'faith' in projected polls, the actual poll numbers for who won the debate are in Ryan's favor.

And do these debates really determine an Election is the more important question. I say they don't.

PS And knowing this about Biden, that he can be condescending to Women at times, then they probably should not have had a Women Moderator.
This is not being sexist. I'm a realist.
Another thing, Biden probably took the tact of:
"Who is this little imp talking head to tell me when I have to stop talking before I have fully made my point".
I can understand that from Biden's position, perspective and status of age and experience.
Biden had more than equal time throughout the debate to make his points - over a minute more than Ryan. But he couldn't stop talking long enough to give his opponent a considerately equal amount of unterrupted time between the smirking and whining.

It was not becoming of a VP and put on full display the superior and condescending mentality of Democrats who do not take any of the serious issues we face seriously.

The Republican brain trust has coalesced around an official response to last night's vice presidential debate: Joe Biden laughed and smiled. A lot. Oh, and he was rude. That's all they've got. But considering their other option was that Paul Ryan had his ass handed to him, it's probably the best they can do.

Obama stooges last night were yucking it up about increased donations today. Today it is already obvious Independents were put off by his disrespect for Ryan and the moderator. The Obama base is overjoyed, the rest of us are disgusted with his performance.
