Skip to comments.With Biden Up Next to Debate, Obama’s Aides Plot Comeback
Posted on 10/08/2012 5:26:41 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
WASHINGTON President Obamas 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 presidents team struggles to put his campaign back on track is a renewed effort to win the three remaining debates, starting with Thursdays 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 presidents chief strategist who is personally overseeing the preparations, Mr. Biden will be counseled on how to avoid Mr. Obamas mistakes and even correct them with a more aggressive prosecution of the Republican ticket. Mr. Axelrods 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 was EXACTLY my point here in this first comment.#25
That is how we can tell if he won. You could tell MR won because he kept O on the defensive most of the time. This is a good test to see if Ryan was a good pick for this race. If he is then Biden will be drawn off as Ryan attacks.
"Arlen, old pal, I really want to thank you for helping
me prepeare for the debate, especially after I convinced
you to turn Democrat---and you lost your Senate seat."
He led Obama into a historic debate flop, and now Axelrod is vainly hoping VP Biden's debate performance will pull Obama's burning nuts out of the fire.
So watch Biden get all fuzzy and teary-eyed about the middle class "burden"---- and he loves to snick and snarl about those horrid one percenters---but lookie here---the lyin' lowdown turkey doesn't mind pocketing Richie Rich's money. Read on.
NY POST PAGE SIX---Obama still has some friends in investment banking. Chad Leat, managing director and chairman of Alternative Asset Group Investment Banking at Citigroup Inc, hosted a $10,000-a-plate dinner for VP Joe Biden on Aug. 24 at his home---The Barnyard in pricey Bridgehampton. Leat is described in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens mag as a banker, dedicated equestrian and imaginative host, with an elegant, but hip home. On the table for discussion will undoubtedly be the Obama economy and jobs. Probably not up for discussion will be that in 2008 Leat's employer Citigroup got Obama's $45 billion government bailout in two installments. (N-o-o-o connection, of course--/snix).
NY POST PAGE SIX---Actor Nathan Lane hosted an Obama fund-raiser attended by Joe Biden in Bridgehampton. The Aug. 24 event, called "East End for Obama," featured a performance by singer James Taylor. Hosts included actress Julianne Moore, Sopranos star Edie Falco and Jane Holzer. An Obama fund-raiser in the exclusive Hamptons enclave of the rich---host Chesler bragged and e-mailed media that the event began in the arts community out East but has morphed into what we understand will be the major Obama campaign event this summer in the Hamptons. Tickets range from $500 to $10,000 to join the host committee and get a photo with Biden
THIS SHOULD COME IN HANDY VP Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was previously a top official at PARADIGM Global Advisors, a hedge-fund holding company founded with Vice President Bidens brother, James, and marketed by convicted finance fraudster Allen Stanford. As Paradigm chairman, Hunter Biden oversaw half a billion dollars of client money invested in hedge funds while remaining a lobbyist. Cooper chipped in $2 million for the ill-fated venture, which went down in flames amid nasty fraud lawsuits." (NOTE Stanford is now in jail but the Biden's got off scot-free.)
NOTE Oama put VP Biden in charge of the trillion dollar federal stimulus. Guess Joe's son and brother are gonna help him disperse the money.
Offshore Fraudster Stanford had links to offshore fund run by VP Biden's relatives / Reuters on Yahoo | 2/23/09 | BY Ajay Kamalakaran (Reuters) A fund of offshore hedge funds run by two members of VP Joe Biden's family was marketed exclusively by offshore firms controlled by Texas financier Allen Stanford, charged by regulators with an $8 billion fraud, the Wall Street Journal said. The Bidens $50 million fund was jointly branded between the Bidens' Paradigm Global Advisors LLC and the offshore Stanford Financial Group entity headquartered in Antigua, and was known as the Paradigm Stanford Capital Management Core Alternative Fund, the WSJ said. --snip--
Problem is that Ryan goes in armed with a light saber and all Biden has is a laser pointer.
“Reading this article reminded me of John Belushi in The Blues Brothers streaming excuses for standing up Carrie Fisher at the alter. “
Oh yeah! How right you are! Here’s the clip of the MSM making excuses for Obama, uh, I mean Jake:
Amen about Biden needing a brain transplant.
I'm sorry ...
What were you saying ...... ?
I'm sorry ...
What were you saying ...... ?
I don't really believe in that astrology stuff, but there does seem to be somethi'...Hey, a squirrel! Did you see that?
I haven't got one of these for AT LEAST a week. I must be slacking :)
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 : )
Think Neil Kinnock....
” Offshore Fraudster Stanford had links to offshore fund run by VP Biden’s relatives /”
I forgot about that.
Good on ya, Liz!
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.
