Talk about BS....All of the networks cut away after the debate to analysis. Not one single network is airing the Republican response to tonight’s Biden/ABC soliloquy. Not one!

>I was voting for RR anyway, but never had an opportunity to really hear Ryan for an extended period of time. And I still haven’t had an opportunity to hear Paul Ryan speak for an extended period of time!!!<

Someone upthread said Biden accomplished his goal - to keep Ryan from getting his message out effectively. I think Biden will be a drag on the ticket. He came across as such an ass people have been turned off. Do you want to vote for someone you dislike? I don’t.

"I agree, I'm totally turned off by the petulant child biden is, screaming and ranting while Ryan is speaking as an adult. "

I think a lot of people were turned off by Biden's laughing, his smirks, his interruptions, and off-screen noises he made while Ryan was talking. He came across as a bully and a thug. Obama thinks he was "too polite" during the first debate with Romney. If he decides to use the same thuggish behavior as Biden tonight, it isn't going to go over very well.

I agree.

Biden came off as arrogant, petulant, and dismissive. Rude.

Ryan kept his cool, delivered a couple of zingers, and showed incredible command of details.

Ryan was simply the more likeable, better informed candidate.

As with the first debate thread, I kept getting messages that FR servers were not responding. At least during the first debate, I could eventually get to a post reply page, and had a little more success that night in being able to post a reply or two. Tonight, I couldn’t even get the pages to refresh, or get to a post reply page. It was worse tonight.

I am watching the post debate talk on Fox Business with cavuto and Senator Ron Johnson and Herman cain hammered Biden for his attitude and demeanor in this debate. Cain called the debate a farce and a joke. Ron was very critical of Biden not letting Ryan finish his statements. Ron said clearly Paul Ryan won and Biden had to resort to bully tactics as usual.

When did he do that?

All I ever saw him do was say we must secure the SCOTUS.

I agree with that and think SCOTUS has to much power.
We NEED THE Senate

"Dick Morris said Biden was a charicature of a politician."

I think that Biden's brutish, obnoxious behavior will be seen by the people as an example of what is wrong in Washington.

YOU are wasting valuable bandwidth with your constant need for attention to validate your feelings. With all due respect, you are either naive on the process or ignorant on the issues, but either way, a personal blog would probably be more valuable for you and less annoying to us.

That is all.

Personally, when faced with a ranting liberal, I adopt the exact same attitude that I would with an injured animal, a child throwing a tantrum or psychologically unbalanced mental patient.

None of the above are able to control their emotions/thought process, therefore they tend to lash out blindly.

I consider it an act of Christian mercy.

Having said all that, if one ever physically lays a paw on me, I’m gonna hurt ‘em bad.

Sorry Red, but as an FR member since before Sore/Loserman days, and a monthly donor since way before you even signed up here, I resent your bouncing that FReepathon graphic off my 'too long to respond' post.

I've been hearing the same carrot/stick routine for years now re 'new servers / bigger pipe / etc etc' and performance has only gotten slower over time.

Given the miserable latency for the past two debates, there's NO WAY IN HELL this site will cope with a Presidential election in 26 DAYS !

I love FR, but these ridiculous lag times just ain't kosher . . .

He claimed to be a “practicing Catholic” [maybe someday he’ll get it right] yet he fully supports killing babies.

I can’t imagine the psychotic split necessary to reconcile one with the other.

I can’t do it.

I would expect that constantly trying to ‘juggle’ the will of God versus baby killing could drive you insane.

*shrug*

He’s just another demonic, to me.

If they ever remake “The Stand”, he should audition for The Walking Dude.

He was evil incarnate and jovial as Hell, too.

Ryan asked one critical question that Joe neglected and that question won him the debate. He asked the American people for their vote.

From JimRob after last week's debate:

Sorry about the downtime tonight. Don’t know what happened there other than our system became overloaded. Still don’t know when John is planning on installing the new equipment, but hoping it is soon. This was very disappointing.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2939499/posts?page=223#223

And this one yesterday in response to a question:

No new equipment yet. Hopefully soon. Thanks!

"On Fox Luntz's focus group of 20+ undecideds were asked if the debate moved them to a decision or to change their mind and not 1 hand was raised."

At the beginning of the panel Luntz asked about Biden's demeanor during the debate and I think all but 1 woman on the panel expressed that they weren't impressed with "bully" Biden.

I thought that act would turn off the lady vote and it seems like the panel confirms.
