The media will do everything in their power to make Ryan appear unlikable and disrespectful to Biden, who will be masquerading as a beloved elder statesman.
I think you’re exactly right on this.
Unlike most people, I think Ryan will have a difficult debate precisely because of this.
Biden will be the perceived winner simply because the media need him to be.
I recently rewatched the biden/Palin debate. I disagree... biden is a lying moron.
Excellent points! The worst would be a dressing down of Ryan by a man that lost his wife and one year old daughter in a car crash 40 years ago. Joe is not as easy target as everyone seems to think he is. Ryan needs to keep this debate about Obama and his record. If he does a good job at that, Joe might be agreeing with him by the end of the debate.
Fixed it for you.
I seem to recall in Biden's debate with Sarah, he referenced walking into a restaurant and chatting it up with the locals. As it turned out, the establishment went out of business during Clinton's 1st term, maybe even earlier.
Biden often tries to come across as some folksy local-boy-who-made-good, but it's all phony!
(edit -- a quick search turned up the name Katie's Restaurant.)
