He's definitely a "team player" which is part of the problem.

They sometimes have to remind him which team he's on. And once he's on the field, they have to worry he'll make a touchdown for the wrong side.

Russia says the Syria-bound plane intercepted by Turkey amid reports it was carrying cargo which could aid government war efforts was transporting a legal shipment of radar equipment.

"There were no weapons on the plane," said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

His comments followed heated exchanges between Turkey and Syria over the exact nature of the items confiscated.

Turkey's PM earlier said Russian-made defence equipment was found on board - a claim Syria dismissed as a lie.

Damascus has challenged the Turks to put the seized goods on public view.

Relations deteriorated sharply last week after the deaths of five Turkish

Maybe Homer can be just as "eloquent" in explaining the question I asked him before:

What did Joe find so funny about the attacks on our embassies, the number of joblessness and the Middle East fiasco which they screwed up?

Or maybe you have an explanation?

So maybe you can tell me. What did Joe find so funny about the attacks on our embassies, the number of joblessness and the Middle East fiasco which they screwed up?
and what was the deal with Biden saying Iran doesn't have a weapon? is this administration so stupid that they don't realize that a suit case on a plane or at an embassy is a weapon?

I'm not defending him.

I've always thought Biden was rude and offensive.

But, I also didn't expect him to be anything different in The Debate.

Where is the discussion regarding Biden's position on the issues.

All I've heard about is his rudeness.

He's always condescending, smirking and inappropriately laughing.

And as I stated, that is nothing new with Biden.

And I'm not that invested in these debates as you are.

I have a life. You have topix. And politics.

Biden has always been a little unbalanced. He's like the every family's eccentric uncle who amuses everyone but is never taken seriously.
However, if you didn't see the smirking, inappropriate laughing, rudeness and condescention for yourself, you probably shouldn't be defending him, should you?

I find it inappropriate for presidential candidates to comment on sensitive foreign policy issues. It is foolhardy, dangerous and is clear postering, not to mention meaningless. I realize it can't be forbidden, but one would think that common sense would prevail.
These republicans are whining and acting as if the State Dept, CIA FBI and the President are obliged to reveal every single detail of everything so that they can weigh in with their stupid sophmoric comments in a feeble attempt to gain some sort of points to sway public opinion? Remember Valerie Plame?
You do realize that Romney/Ryan are getting the same security briefings that Obama/Biden are getting right?

Momentary breaks for him- in trying to make refreshing lemonade out of already squeezed and drained lemons-can't "debate" the TRUTH.(and breathe.)

It's called being assertive and confident when Romney does it. When a democrat does it, well then it's a horse of a different color. It's called rude, interruptive and aggressive. These people go off the rails when the truth and facts are presented. They live in a world of Fox/Limbaugh/Beck distortions and lies. Last night was a shock to em. This is how they react. Like a bunch of little girls. Professional cable news screecher Sean Hannity is shocked that Biden had the audacity to go after Ryan and act "interruptive". I Can’t wait for the clip of tonight’s show when Hannity rudely shouts down a Democratic guest about Biden’s rudeness and “interruptive”(not a word) behavior. Today agressive is a dirty word. Last week, not so much.
It's totally amazing. Ryan was totally outranked, Bidens got 40 years of experience in foreign policy and he was on his game. And, he was not lying.
Mitt was lying about everything during the first debate; he can't seem to say the same thing the same twice.

Joe lied. Americans died.

TOM BROKAW SEES THE WRITING ON THE WALL: Tom Brokaw Pans Biden Debate Demeanor: Shouldn’t Be ‘Laughing’ During Discussion Of Iran.

He shouldn’t have been lying about his Iraq and Afghan war votes, either. And the claim about our current financial problems stemming from Bush’s putting those wars that Biden voted for “on the credit card” is an occasion to repost this graphic comparing spending under Bush and Obama once again. Yeah, that part’s basically a lie, too. Joe Biden’s sounding kinda like Joe Isuzu, only less smooth.

Ya mean like "this war is lost".

ps

Valerie Plame was exposed by Richard Armitrage at State and she wasn't an undercover CIA agent. Her husband worked for Kerry

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH EDITORIALIZES: Obama administration can’t spin its way out of blame for Benghazi.“The murder of Stevens and his colleagues raises serious questions about the administration’s priorities and competence.”

Indeed it does. Or maybe it just answers them.

You have lost all right to talk about women's rights. To even compare what you whiny ass libtard women call so-called women's rights to what those poor women in the Muslim world go through is a travesty. You should be ashamed of yourself!!!

Yeah, Lily...that's a rational comparison..."rightwinger s are the American Taliban against women's rights".

Seriously?

Do you have any idea how insane that sounds in light of what the radical Islamic Taliban does to women?

We don't want to pay for women killing their unborn child or their birth control pills which they wouldn't use anyway.

Think about what you just said for a minute. Maybe the light will come on.

Did they point out Ryan voted against more security for our embassies ?
Yes I believe he did but cuts had nothing to do with the shortages of security at the Benghazi embassy. So for Biden or the Democrats to suggest there was, is just another lie in a long list of Whoppers in regards to this cover up.
