Funnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny, State Department throws Obama under the bus..........Biden then throws the intellegence community under the bus........can't, with all the script writers, these people get their story straight. Its probably better when the phone rang at three in the morning that no one answered.
Obama: I give you six days and all you can do is tell lies and have a chit eaten grin all the time.

Uuuu 51-44. Getting out of the MOE. Things not looking good for team blobama.

Ryan nailed biden on taxing the rich. Taxing the rich alone won't fix a thing.

Sorry that my terminology was incorrect...but don't get your britches in a pinch.'...you liberals...' I have my opinion which is supposed to be a representation of any particular group. As far as Volt & GM: I bet some of that $150M & 'billions' went to workers' salaries. It at least help sustain American workers' incomes which otherwise would have been cut short earlier. It also generates revenue for the country as well. So it still helped. If it didn't help out GM and other companies, what do think would have happened?

Lying? Isn't that the word you libs use when YOU can't debate?
Nope, lying is the word I use when someone lies, the nice thing is, it's easy to research the statements made by both, and determine who the bigger lier is. They both do it! All politicians do. If you really believe that your guy doesn't lie and spin for maximum effect, then your too far gone to even debate with.

Of course you have to actually go to more than one website. But that takes too much time for some, like Ryan tryin to explain how they will pay for a 20% across the board tax cut, there's just not enough time to tell us about it.

Stop it.
Our intelligence community is so bad that we were told the problem was a video that was running on the web for months and it just happened to have been on 9-11 that all those people happened to be protesting with ied's and you know, burning the American Flag and all. Sodomizing and murdering our Ambassador. But they never asked for extra security, and like Lamb testified the security was at the right level. Besides look at the mess we inherited. Look at what Romney wants to do to Medicare. Look at anything but Obama and Joey.

This is the scandal that will bring Obama down!

Tonight biden reiterated the need to tax the rich. So I go to the IRS website to see what kind of stats they have on sources of income. The data stops in 2009. They used to keep it well updated, but nothing in 3 years.

I wonder why? Is the information that hard to come by?? Does it take that long to accumulate??

Or, maybe, there really isn't that much to take from the "rich"

Lol, you crack me up. At least Biden has a nice honest smile, instead of the Romney smirk that we saw so much of during the last debate.
Biden brought up points to refute Ryan's lies, and all Ryan could counter with, "trust me he's lying, but I can't tell you exactly why" par for the course.
Not to mention Ryan changed Romneys campaign positions yet again! It was time, they've been holding the same positions for almost a week now, change was overdue.
Attention failure!!! You call that a nice honest smile? I call it a pompous sht grin to impress fools like you.
Ryan won the debate and biden won on rude interruptions. I mean when you cannot hear what someone says because of a jerk running his mouth that's very annoying and obiden annoyed those viewers trying to hear what Ryan had to say. People don't buy from a high pressure salesman and November will show that to be true.

Your right, they don't buy Romney. And Ryan didn't have anything to say except the same tired hollow talking points. Except for the few occasions that he agreed with what the administration was doing, and the couple of times he changed the Romney campaigns stance on political issues. But we're all getting used to not knowing which Romney were going to get, there seems to be a different one every morning when I get up.

Biden said the consulate in Libya did not ask for more help in the area of security...I think the present hearings in congress show quite the contrary.

Report: US Was Warned About Libya Attack

As anti-America violence continues across the Middle East, many are wondering what warnings the United States may've had before the attack in Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others dead.
The British newspaper The Independent claims the U.S. State Department had credible information of the attack at least 48 hours before it took place. But even with that warning, there was no instruction for diplomats to be on alert.
"As we did with all of our missions overseas, in advance of the Sept. 11 anniversary and as we do every year, we did evaluate the threat stream and determined that the security was appropriate for what we knew," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
Many are also pointing out that just one day before the attack, an al Qaeda leader Ayman al- Zawahiri called for Libyans to rise up against Americans over the recent killing of a high-ranking al Qaeda official.
"So one day before the storming of the embassy in Libya, Zawahiri releases a tape calling for vengeance, calling for jihadists to rise up. That's exactly what happened," CBN News Terrorism Analyst Erick Stakelbeck said.

Interrupting so the other side can't answer or the audience can't hear the full answer is not a debating skill.

Joe Biden was very inappropriate. Any points made by him will be lost due to his bizarre behavior.

It would appear that Ryan was advised to let "Joe be Joe" and that Joe will bury himself

and guess what??????????

Joe Biden did just that. Very weird behavior, really not vice presidential and typical of what the people have come to expect from democrats.

Biden's wacky behavior detract from his points.

Paul Ryan conducted himself with dignity and respect, not so Joe Biden.

Lmao! Talking points that Biden tried to correct but was cut off..

Learn the difference between a consulate and an embassy! Embassies have marines covering them, embassies requested additional resources, and got them.

Consulates were not on the intelligence radar.. Embassies were.. You're either confusing the two to spin it like FOX or you just don't know any better..

Romney and Ryan don't know the difference, doesn't mean us voters shouldn't be better informed.

Would you people learn the difference between an embassy and a consulate! Please! Before you look like fox news or msnbc ditto heads!

Yes the intelligence showed that our embassies could be targeted! So the marines with loaded weapons were prepared! At the embassies!

Security at Consulates is controlled by private security! Hence the lack of marines on site! This is not a special order of this administration! It's just the way it is!

Spin spin spin!
