Skip to comments.Why Biden lost the debate

One of the casualties of Obama's debate last week is his likability rating. That was the only thing that was sustaining him. It definitely wasn't the state of the economy. When he started smirking and looking condescending when Romney was pummeling him with facts, some people not only continued to think of him as not exactly competent, they started for the first time thinking him as rude and a jerk. While Biden probably made Democrats feel better with his debate performance, I expect that his terrible rudeness confirmed the lack of likability of the Obama/Biden ticket in the minds of the independent voters. I believe people will be surprised to see the momentum continue for Romney over the next few days due to this dynamic.
Biden was a arrogant, condescending, rude SOB, a perfect example of the ruling class.
I was just reading on Yahoo (I know. Idiots) that Radditz is “drawing praise” over the great job she did. I think a lot of viewers were doing drugs tonight before and during the debate. They sure as hell didn’t watch the same one I did. Chuckles the Clown ran roughshod over her. At the end of the debate, she looked as though she’d been hit by a bus.
you mean you didn't like his performance?
Because he is an idiot?
Or perhaps it could be because the whole reason Biden was chosen to be VP because he was the only man in America who could never out shine his boss?
The only thing anyone will remember in a week is that Joe Biden is a creep.
Personally, I think the lunatic chewed a spot of LSD before coming on.
Biden made an a$$ of himself as usual. I wanted to snatch Martha Radditz bald headed (she looks like my flaming lib, rabid feminist SIL- so that didn’t help matters, then to cap it off, she had the same smug, condescending attitude too)
I enjoyed the Mitt/ 0bama debate. But not this one.
I will say this...whatever teeth whitener that VP Joe uses...it’s dang good stuff. Course, it’s probably illegal for whitener use, but he’s got a four-star white teeth look, if you ask me.
Joe Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.
Give me a break. Joe gave the performance of a lifetime. He just earned his retirement.
(The only thing anyone will remember in a week is that Joe Biden is a creep.)
Precisely my point! Does anyone remember what Bush or Gore said during their debates? I bet everybody remembers Gore’s sighing and acting exasperated though! This matters to the “dumb vote” who are people who go into the voting booth still undecided till the very last moment. They’ll then vote “their gut”, and that’s where likability comes in!

I really try not to watch ANY of these ads, mainly cause I already know what I don’t like about you or your opponent, just tell me what YOU are going to do.
Sometimes I can’t get to the remote/mute quick enough so I did notice that in one set of ads (FOR BO) they rail about how Romney refuses to ‘share’ his budget plan or take it into detail, the very next one has people griping about what the Romney budget is going to do to Seniors, Students etc etc....
I guess my ‘main’ problem is Just how can BO have the nerve to mention anything about anyones budget, or lack of one?
I don’t think he has yet garnered a vote in favor of any semblance of a budget he has submitted to the Senate....
Nov 6 just can’t get here quick enough.....at least all this trash will be gone..and MOST HOPEFULLY, BO will also be gone and take the rest of the trash with them....
When Biden wasn’t rudely interrupting Ryan, Radditz was.
She was horrible.
I am very curious how his comments about his close relationship for thirty eight years with “bibi” will play out.
Rock on, Joe. The admin has thrown your good friend under the bus.
Biden smirked way to often. Most people won’t find it endearing.
Ryan comment...”I know you are trying to make up for the last debate.” GOLDEN!!
A perfect day tomorrow would be a reporter asking Bibi about his, only to have him reply, "Joe who?"
9 When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.
There have to be a lot of people out there who are suddenly thinking “My God, if Obama should die, we would have THAT flaming a*****e as president?”
Why Romney will lose the next debate:
In debate 1, Romney won despite saying virtually nothing about the SIZE of government.
In debate 2, Ryan looked weak because he was unwilling to say anything at all about the SIZE of government.
In debate 3, Romney is going to absolutely lose unless he shows up ready, willing and able to repeatedly and forcefully attack the SIZE of government.
There is one thing that defines the Obama administration, and that’s the SIZE of government.
If Romney/Ryan aren’t willing to talk about the SIZE of government, then they aren’t really attacking the Obama administration.
By not talking about the size of government, Romney and Ryan both showed up to gun fights armed only with knives. Romney got away with it the first time; he won’t get away with it again.
For generations to come, debate coaches will be using Biden’s performance as an example of how not to do “incredulous.”
I kept waiting for her to pass that stone.
Really? The “size of government” is the only thing that can save Romney? Nothing about the terrible economy, the outrageous spending, or the feckless and dangerous foreign policy? None of that has any bearing on anything anymore?
Nice passage from Proverbs, thanks.
