Raddatz, thinking along your lines that the brainless Biden needs much help, and so therefore she will attempt to skew favorable questions to Biden and try to plant land mines for Ryan.

Ryan will easily move around the OBot land mines, and easily pivot to hammering Biden and Obama. :-)

C-Span is my choice, they don’t have those annoying obligatory screen shots whenever someone’s name is mentioned.

Nice clean screen.

Keep in mind, out advantage is that our guys are always sharp (those that are capable of sharpening). Our guys are challenged *constantly*. Ryan has been attacked consistently for the last two years for “throwing Granny-in-a-wheel-chair” over the cliff. He has thick skin.

Unfair for what it is. But when it really counts, our guys are primed. That’s why an embattled Mitt Romney crushed a flaccid Barak Obama last week.

Thanks kristinn... I'll check back later, probably after the debate.

Hate to say it, but I fully expect FR to crash - as it usually does - during busy nights like tonight. It's a shame... oh well.

GO RYAN!!!

My hope is that Biden tries too hard to over-compensate for Bozo by going aggressive and passionate... thankfully, that is when he gaffes. He’ll call Martha ‘Marvin’ or something similar. Or maybe he’ll vomit the grilled chicken he just had all over the crowd.

I can’t conceive of watching Joe-Z Wails for 90 minutes... oy! But I will be following commentary here.

Let’s all remember one thing: it’s almost a certainty that this will not be a replay of the Trouncing of Obamugabe. That said, Ryan will more than hold his own.

I accept brief, terse texting but there is no guarantee that I will text back..and all my friends know that.

My cell phone has a message if I am on the phone and someone is trying to call in that says,” Please calll back. I am on the phone with someone more important than you.”ha.

“Look at what they [Republicans] value, and look at their budget. And look what they’re proposing.

They’re going to put y’all back in chains.” —Joe Biden, speaking to a largely African-American audience in Danville, Va., Aug. 14, 2012

“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” —Joe Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus who were gathered in Williamsburg, Va., for their annual retreat, Feb. 6, 2009

“Am I doing this again? For the senior staff? My memory is not as good as Chief Justice Roberts’.” —Joe Biden, mocking Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ botched effort to swear in Barack Obama as Biden was set to swear in White House senior staff one day after the Inauguration snafu, Washington, D.C., Jan. 21, 2009

“Jill and I had the great honor of standing on that stage, looking across at one of the great justices, Justice Stewart.” –Joe Biden, mistakenly referring to Justice John Paul Stevens, who swore him in as vice president, Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2009 (Watch video clip)

“Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.” —Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008 (Source)

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008 (Watch video clip)

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” –Joe Biden, referring to Barack Obama at the beginning of the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, Jan. 31, 2007 (Source)

“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I’m not joking.” —Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006 (Watch video clip)

I’m a fitness trainer — I think that PX90 is great, but I don’t teach it because I have found that it is not something clients stick with. I try to teach routines that my clients will stay with for life.

Unfortunately, all I can watch it on ( besides the Internet ) is CNN. They just interviewedtheir “focus group” 33, percent for Obozo, 30 percent for Romney, and the rest still undecided -morons.
