Biden should get back on TV (like FDR did in 1929) and explain his 'the middle class have been buried for the last 4 years' "gaffe".
Alfred E. Biden would be an embarrassment to any other party.
But last night he said (mumbled toward the moderator) that even on the things that he's said the "come out wrong," he always means what he says. Don't think that's a genuine gaffe.

Like I said--the script for today was to blame the CIA. I stated that earlier this morning. The O'bama team did not fail me.
"As Commander in Chief" blah blah blahblah....

Danish website holding ‘smallest penis’ contest

In Denmark, one of the smallest countries in the world, size clearly matters: a website has invited men to send in photos of their private parts and the man with the smallest penis wins an iPhone.

Joe Biden has sincerity and empathy. You can't fake that. Romney/Ryan are two cold calculating cutthroats and liars. The debate was great, way to go Joe! He did a super job explaining Iran; I loved it when he said, everyone needs to calm down, they don't have a weapon. Then he asked Ryan "you want to go to war"?
Fantastic.
I agree. He's a lovable guy as long as he's not in power or perpetrating the deception by this adminstration.

And also said, so does Mitt Romney! Depending on the day I guess.
What's Romneys position on abortion today?

So it appears Biden, like Romney broke the rules of the debate. Of course rightwingers loved that Romney 'took charge' but hated Biden for doing the same thing.

The first abortion clinic in Northern Ireland will open next week amid fears it will attract protests along the lines of violent opposition to similar facilities in some US states.

The privately-run clinic in Belfast will be run by the Marie Stopes group, which said it would offer "a wide range of family planning and sexual health services under one roof

We actually do need to start over with major reforms, streamlining government and restoring states' rights. There's only one candidate who promises to do all that.

Obama, on the other hand, is perfectly happy with the status quo.

No kidding, the big difference is that Mitt was lying through his teeth and Joe was laughing at the incredulous statements made by Ryan. Joe was on his game, and Ryan kept drinking water. Ryan was clearly out of his league; but at least he's not dumb like Palin.
When he was saying "we'll get the Ayatollahs to change their minds", I had to laugh at that one.
Joe relates to the American people with sincerity and empathy. You can't buy that with a spray tan.

But we are leaving. We are leaving in 2014. Period. And in the process, we’re going to be saving over the next 10 years another $800 billion. We’ve been in this war for over a decade. The primary objective is almost completed. Now, all we’re doing is putting the Kabul government in a position to be able to maintain their own security.

It’s their responsibility, not America’s.

BIDEN: Forty-nine — 49 of our allies said “out in 2014.” It’s the responsibility of the Afghans. We have other responsibilities…(CROSSTALK)

BIDEN: Look, the Taliban — what we’ve found out, and we — you saw it in Iraq, Martha, unless you set a timeline, Baghdad, in the case of Iraq, and — and Kabul, in the case of Afghanistan will not step up. They’re happy to let us continue to do the job; international security forces to do the job.

The only way they step up is to say,“Fellas, we’re leaving; we’ve trained you; step up, step up.”

AND

BIDEN: The last thing America needs is to get in another ground war in the Middle East, requiring tens of thousands, if not well over 100,000 American forces. That — they are the facts. They are the facts.

SPOT ON.

In contrast to Mitt Romney’s used-car salesman approach in which he craps in your mouth but does so in a way that makes you thank him and shake his sweaty hand in the end, Barack Obama’s natural and authentic — underscore authentic — style might’ve seemed like he wasn’t as polished. Furthermore, many of my friends on the left lapsed back into this weird chronic amnesia in which they forget how Barack Obama carries himself, how he debates and who he is.

No, the president wasn’t as energetic as he could’ve been. Yes, he was far too kind and deferential to an opponent whose entire goal is to roll back every Obama administration achievement. There was zero chance that President Obama would appear in Denver last night and suddenly reveal himself to be a snappy, idealized Aaron Sorkin character. With a few exceptions, the Obama you watched last night was the same Obama we watched win all three debates against John McCain four years ago, say nothing of all of the various town halls, press conferences and Question Time forums he’s hosted. He’s thoughtful and deliberate and, yes, he sometimes stammers during pauses, but that’s no reflection on his leadership qualities or unrivaled intelligence. For the most part, this is how he’s always comported himself. The problem, however, was that it might’ve come off as too deliberate and thoughtful when contrasted against Romney’s caffeinated morning zoo deejay persona.

Republicans wouldn't have accused Gore of "stealing the election" had the Supreme Court deemed Gore had the most votes after 3 months of counting and recounting going on 12 years now.
