Biden: 'You Ever See Me Rope-a-Dope?'
The Weekly Standard ^ | Oct 11, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 10/11/2012 8:46:12 AM PDT by AmonAmarth

Joe Biden, on his way to tonight's vice presidential debate in Kentucky, asks the press, "You ever see me rope-a-dope?"

From the pool report:

Vice President Biden arrived at about 10:50 a.m. at New Castle Airport. He climbed out of a gray SUV, greeted some military (see below) and then walked toward the press gathered near the wing.

Asked about tonight's debate he said, "Looking forward to it."

Asked about his strategy, whether it was rope-a-dope, he responded: "You ever see me rope-a-dope?"

That’s too easy.

Well Joe, if you put a rope around yourself, you’ve roped a dope.

This debate will be the best entertainment of the year.

They've learned not to give Biden rope to play with.

Time Magazine has pictures of Ryan working out - they’re going to try to present Ryan as a bully who pushes around old people. Also, most of the questions will deal with abortion. Ryan needs to tell Biden the ME is in flames, the country’s broke, our dollar is crashing, there are no jobs - and until those things are taken care of ‘abortion’ is on the back burner. Then tell him they’ll ‘debate’ that issue in four years...

If he’d have lassoed him, they prolly woulda thunk that was kinda maybe racist or something.

Biden is going to be a screaming, condescending a-hole tonight. And the media already has their headlines written.

I hope Ryan has prepared accordingly.

He will come out swinging. Ryan will be playing the sensible conservative guy with the facts. Biden will try to win on noise, agression and some smart remarks he’s been given. If he comes up with some smart remarks of his own, hilarity may ensue.

His media minions will proclaim victory in any case. Ryan will be tagged as lying about all his facts. Biden will be described as a fiery fighter for the people.

The talking heads will be vociferous in boosting Biden tonight. They are freaking out and hopefully will overdo the spin.

Yes, I wonder if the MSN is pumping/building up Ryan to win hoping of course Ryan will lose. That way they can seem stunned and make a bigger deal of a Ryan loss.

I hope he wins but I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch.

I bought into all the hype about the polls being wrong during the last election and we see how that turned out.

I’m holding a wait and see attitude until I have something to celebrate

Nope. Great way to depress a large part of the base. How about "Let Ryan be Ryan"? On abortion, Biden's record is such that it easy to tag him as the hypocrite that he is.

I'll give Joe one thing. He doesn't rope-a-dope. He comes out swinging, regardless of whether he has a fact or a clue.

He's like a new butterbar with a compass and a map, full of piss and vinegar, ready to charge, and absolutely no clue.

Yeah, but ol’ joe crashed a biker bar and sat one dude’s babe on his lap. I mean how insanely brave do you have to be to do something like that? Never mind the SS with guns.

If this debate devolves into a “he said, she said” I hope Ryan is able to inject some humor into it by reciting some of Biden’s “greatest hits” gaffes. Actually I hope he does it regardless how the debate unfolds.

As revealed by a video shown on C-SPAN, when questioned by a New Hampshire resident about his grades in law school, Biden had replied “I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect,” and then inaccurately recollected graduating in the “top half” of his class (he actually graduated 76th out of 85), that he had attended law school on a full scholarship, and had received three degrees in college. In fact, he had earned a single B.A. with a double major in history and political science, and had received a half scholarship to law school based on financial need with some additional assistance based in part upon academics. During this time, Biden also released his undergraduate grades, which were unexceptional.

Actually I have seen people on both sides of the debate say this. and I agreee.

It's a political answer from the kind of people that 90% of us dislike. Abortion on the backburner? What does that mean? Does that mean that Ryan doesn't restate the Reagan-Bush-Bush Executive Orders that were undone by Clinton-Obama? Does that mean a dead or retired SCOTUS gets replaced by someone who will sail through, teh Constitution be damned? Does that mean pro-lifers have to suck it up until Democrats are no longer a threat to the economy and military? (meaning forever?)

Do you really want Ryan to join in on confirming Romney as worse than a squish on these issues?

This election is about more than 2012. If the Republican Party gets morphed into the Canadian Progressive Conservatives, you can kiss a conservative majority goodbye.

The bluest northeastern states like that sort of talk (NY, CT, RI, MA). But Romney stands to pick up crucial votes in the far more important states of PA, MI, OH and WI by not just shoving pro-life on the back-burner.
