With Biden Up Next to Debate, Obama’s Aides Plot Comeback
New York Times ^ | October 7, 2012 | PETER BAKER and TRIP GABRIEL

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s campaign is working feverishly to restore its momentum after a lackluster debate performance last week, an effort that began with a conference call 10 minutes before the debate even ended and led to new advertisements, a rewritten stump speech, a carefully timed leak and a reversal of months-old strategy.

Perhaps most important as the president’s team struggles to put his campaign back on track is a renewed effort to win the three remaining debates, starting with Thursday’s face-off between Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Representative Paul D. Ryan. Mr. Biden began traveling to a Delaware hotel on Sunday for three days of debate camp.

Under the tutelage of David Axelrod, the president’s chief strategist who is personally overseeing the preparations, Mr. Biden will be counseled on how to avoid Mr. Obama’s mistakes and even correct them with a more aggressive prosecution of the Republican ticket. Mr. Axelrod’s involvement highlights the stakes the Obama campaign places on the debate, and Mr. Biden has been reading “Young Guns,” the book co-written by Mr. Ryan, and practicing attack lines that Mr. Obama avoided.

That's all the Madame Defarge gang knows. Unfortunately, in the end she was hoisted by her own petard in A Tale of Two Cities

” Although I can predict 99.9% posters on this site will say that Ryan won even if they miss the debate :) “

Not me. But I gotta tell ya, if Ryan can’t HUMILIATE Biden,

he’s a chucklehead of the first order. I would be able to

without breaking a sweat. If Biden even HINTS that Ryan is

lying about something, the gloves should come off and STAY

OFF. So easy, a cave man can do it......

1) British Labour leader Neil Kinnoch(forced Biden out of race)

2) Biden said he graduated near the top of his LS class. He graduated second from the bottom.

100 other whoppers. Pick your own favorite lie : )

Its times like these when I wish I WAS running for POTUS.

Debate Obama or Biden. I would have a tougher time with a

sharp high school senior.
