IMHO Ryan knocked it out of the park with his closing statement. It was delivered so well with him looking directly at the camera that I had to go back and watch it all over again. The wife is saying that an awful lot of women are also repulsed by bidens behavior for what its worth.

That was why she was there-—your analysis is perfect—she was there to “keep Ryan off track.”

I was so impressed with Ryan’s maturity as he was being “Alinskyed” from not only Biden but that awful woman.

But I know Ryan is used to the obnoxious Marxist tactics of the left. I bet he even read, “Rules for Radicals”.

“Biden came off as such a prick......”

Watched the debate, with my wife, and her 95 year old, hard core democrat, mother. She will for the first time, in her long life, be voting for Romney. My Mother-In-Law was completely disgusted with joe’s behavior. Man, I love joe tonight!!!

If the moderator had any credibility she would have stopped the "debate" and told Joe to act like an adult. Instead, it was interruptions of Ryan, while allowing Biden to read dem. talking points, and act like an ass...then the abortion issue at the end?...please.

Found it interesting that towards the end it looked like Joe ran out of gas...a condition brought about either by 2 hours of blowhard-ing or simply maxed-out on bullsh t.

The democrats want this to go away, and fast. They want the Sunday talkers to be about anything else rather than this clusterfluck.

Biden presented himself as an asshole. No doubt there. The left assholes will love him. The left non-assholes will be embarrassed.

The left non-assholes? There are none.

My Mom was going to vote for Romney no matter what but she has voted Democrat in the past(Last time she voted Dem was for Clinton) she wanted to see how Biden would behave since she doesn’t watch much cable news..and she was absolutely disgusted with Biden..everything about him was creepy..he looked like a pedophile you would see on your local sex offender registry..meanwhile Paul Ryan was very calm and she said that he came across to her as very intelligent(And she really didnt know much about him)

Biden was an a$$!

As an aside, this is complete Bullsh*t that once again, on a huge debate night, FReerepublic faithfully goes down! Seriously, WTF gives? Not trying to be a jerk, but this is just becoming absurd. I think the next debate I'll just save myself the frustration and hang out on another live discussion thread. Very disappointing.

“he looked like a pedophile you would see on your local sex offender registry.”

We thought Biden had the same demeanor as one of those pedophile sex offenders caught on Dateline NBC! At one point, I thought he was going to get up and try to walk out through the garage, only to be grabbed by the waiting cops!

Yup, that’s exactly what we were thinking too, Sarah! What a disgusting performance by an arrogant, rude, liberal hack. Biden is the poster child for Congressional term limits. That this guy has earned a huge salary, paid by the US taxpayers, for 35 years is an absolute disgrace! We have to get him out of here on Nov 6th!

I would have asked biden “How much was the deficit last year of Bush?

and how much was the deficit every year Obama?Obama put so much debt on us that we the U.S. will never recover. Ask that moron Obama how will pay that back . there is not that much money in the world EVER . does any one realize that we will never have the 6 trillion dollars Obama piled up on us?Obama has doomed our future.

do the same thing with # jobs as it is now less than when Obama took office and now workforce grew by 8 million with less jobs now etc. Hope Romney does this.

And point out media bias.

“Rudeness and mocking are viewed as signs of strength and confidence whereas politeness is seen as weakness.”

Only to the libtards. Biden turned off women and independents. The focus groups thought he was rude, condescending and irritating.

Romney absolutely destroyed Obama the marxist POS in their debate.

Ryan didn’t even come close to being as good ad Romney was.

Destined to go down in the annals of political farces, tonight’s debate proved one thing; just how increasingly desperate, juvenile, and out of touch Democrats really are as the election nears. Debates are supposed to be informative, professional forums that invoke a constructive discussion of the most pressing issues. Yet, it’s obvious Team Obama – which includes the home town moderator - realized they could not beat Ryan on the issues, so they decided to turn a democratic staple for the voting masses into a prime time circus replete with century-old, stale stereotypes and Jersey Shore sensationalism.

If anyone actually believes Biden’s obnoxious and smug performance won anything, especially votes, they are in for a rude awakening on November 6th. The fact countless independent voters - those who are the most immune to partisan spin - were appalled by Biden’s rude and condescending behavior, as well as the moderator’s blatant favoritism, is case in point. Then again, if you really want to know who won the debate, go back – if you dare – and keep score on every issue. There are no points for interruptions, smirks, tantrums or seizures….just sound, coherent, factually correct answers. Or, for the sake of brevity, you can sit back and recall that 23 million are out of work, 47 million are on food stamps, over 7 million homes have been foreclosed since 2008 and gas is $4 a gallon. But “honest” Joe didn’t mention that, did he? The circus never does.

But, to be fair, Biden's performance was even worse than the disaster that was Obama's last week! And, to top it off, Biden came off as a real fucking dick, too. To an extent that no VP candidate in my lifetime has ever done. Seriously. A real fucking dick.

I, Me ,a regular joe I would have told Biden, Your socialist leader Obama has piled on 6 trillion in debt on America. Now you detail exactly how we are going to pay that back. And that bird brain Biden would not have been able to answer. Here's a clue Obama, we will never be able to pay that much money back and we will collapse worse than Greece is. And I would keep peppering that POS biden with that and other questions like how many jobs were there when Obama took over and how many now ? And how there are less jobs now with 8 million more in the workforce about 10 million deficit in jobs etc. many other questions.

I would have pointed out media bias and how Obama is destroying the U.S. with debt and big government and taking our freedoms, and it's dictatorial executive order :” You tell me how Obama has the right to act like a dictator. I ask Congress now to do your duty and impeach Obama for abuse of power for passing the dream act Amnesty for illegals over the objection of Congress and behind the American people. Have you no shame Obama? Resign now for this dictatorial act and for destroying the American dream, and the media for covering this up"'s back”

Oh I can go on for 300 pages like this but what's the point. I hope we can still pull it out but Ryan had an opportunity and I hope mitt says this.

I went to the DUmp to see what they thought about Nate Silver calling Florida 60-40. I didn’t find anything about it, of course; but I did see many “DU this poll!” threads. All had Ryan winning until they DUed them.

Biden's grinning when smiling was not appropriate was disturbing. If I see someone behaving that way, I keep my distance from them...

His interruptions were undignified and RUDE. Ryan behaved in a more mature manner.

Rudeness and nasty body language in debate does not help. Think Hillary vs. whoever-he-was for Senator in 2000. He walked up to her and pointed his finger in her face, and lost. Think Bush vs. Gore in 2000. Rolled his eyes, sighed, and Gored a lot. Lost. It’s a tried and failed device, and of course Biden tried it, and will lose.

The first 20 minutes were worrisome, then I fell asleep. I was a bit concerned because it almost seemed like Joe had the run-on bloviating/mocking talking points “answers” on the tip of his tongue and Ryan seemed to be a bit low on energy. Glad to hear that it got better while I snoozed.

It has been so long .. .perhaps even a lifetime, since we’ve had such a wonderful, intelligent, classy and well spoken VP candidate like Ryan. I mean — I’ve never seen one like him. He’s just fantastic — a national treasure. He makes me feel truly hopeful about our future, if there is any hope left to be had.

And yet, we were unable to even HEAR this fine young man because of old fartbag and his high drama distracting rude used car salesman act.

Makes me absolutely SICK.

Time to get out of the way, Joe. You are as stale as day old bread.

.

VP JOE BIDEN:

“We did not know they needed more security personnel in Libya!

‘Intelligence’ never told us!”

LIES - Hearings said Washington DC / State knew for months!

Were you boozing again Joe?

Why didn’t you know?

No “intelligence” you say?
