Right now, some are saying that Rimshot Joe won the debate. Wait until they wake up in the morning. They better enjoy tonight. Biden came across like a fool and everyone who watched on TV saw it.

Most people will not even have watched the debate, but they will hear about how Biden behaved. Ryan did nothing to harm the campaign. I think he was sent out with instructions to play defense and to not allow Biden to sucker him into a spitting contest. The Romney camp thinks they’re ahead. Obama thinks he’s behind. Biden’s behavior tonight is confirmation of this.

Laughing at his opponents in the only method Biden has - it’s getting old. He only made himself look like a fool.

Biden was above sitting down with the likes of Paul Ryan. Seems like I have see this act before. I don't like to be insulted, do you?
In my book, money or position does not make a man. It takes a real man to be humble. Did you see that man in the debate? I did, his name is Paul Ryan.

No doubt true. Furthermore, it’s an Alysnki-ite tactic to divert attention, ridicule and mock your opponent with laughter. I think the tactic boomeranged on Bite-em.

I really believe Joe has a serious mental defect.

And the most scary part is that he is only a heartbeat away from the presidency.

This is not about biden , it's about how Obama is destroying the U.S. and how the media is covering that up. that Ryan had a chance to show this and didn't means a lost opportunity without the media filter that Romney did take but Ryan didn't.

Romney absolutely destroyed Obama the marxist POS in their debate.

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

Yep. Ryan came out like a wonk that he is, something that he was warned about. He’s got a command of his figures and his anecdotes, but he didn’t score any memorable hits, unfortunately, and those could have been some relatively trivial things, such as mentioning the apology tour, or the bowing down in front of foreign tyrants, which would, I think, force the MSM’s hand into bringing back information about and pictures of those things. As I said, something memorable, like even the stupid, “there you go again” or “a thousand points of light”. It was a wasted opportunity. These things are like professional wrestling when it comes to affecting the viewers who are not already on your side.

Except that Ryan got the only real laugh out of the audience tonight, when he quipped about Biden's propensity to be a gaffe machine.

, 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. 6 trillion in Obama debt will crush us, the U.s. and no one can tell me it won’t because we will never ever be able to pay that money back. 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 agree with everything you say. People are misinformed, uninformed and it should be the job of our candidates to rectify it. The debates are such an opportunity, and as I said, they can be used against the MSM, forcing their hand, as it were, in revealing what they had been hiding. Things don’t have to be spoken as bluntly as you and most of us here put it, but they can and should be spoken. Because this debate was like a debate between, say Dan Quayle and whoever was the opposite of him, I don’t remember, anyway, two near equals, neither of whom (or whose bosses) was bent on destroying America, on “improving” and “correcting” the Constitution as Obama himself said more than once in 2008 and earlier.

It was as if Ryan had bought into the McCain/MSM version of Obama as a “good man”.

Oh sure, I caught it. That was a good one. But reading in the WSJ a couple of weeks ago a report from the inside of the Romney camp, I understood that in preparing for the debates they voted there against using “zingers”. I think it was a mistake. Again, I think these debates are in part much like professional wrestling.

I loved this FB comment:

“Greg Garamoni: Biden exhibited the self-control of a long-in-the-tooth, hebephrenic hyena jacked up on laughing gas. As Biden snarled and shrieked and showed his pinkish-red @ss, Ryan “The Lion” was “calm, cool, and collected” (as ML says). Ryan showed he was king of the jungle as he remained unruffled by Bombastic Biden, whose arguments had the force of a flea’s f@rt.”

Thanks.Romney did good destroying Obama in the debate but this Ryan imo failed miserably.

I hope someone gets some of my points over to Romney so he can say them. Ryan missed a golden opportunity to finally tell the American people some of these things but imo failed miserably. what doesn't Ryan know the constitution and how Obama violated the constitution, with that executive order giving Amnesty to illegals? how the media has hidden this from the American people shows how the media and Obama is danger to America cause the media lets Obama do ANYTHING etc.?.

1. Obama’s abuse of Power , that Obama must be impeached for
2. Obama is a socialist/communist destroying America.
3. Obama piled on 6 trillion in debt on us which will destroy America.
4. how Obama destroying America with big government,regulations, debt, crippling our energy industry,
5. lowest workforce participation in 30 years.
6 .high unemployment.
7. How media hides all this from the American people so Obama can impose socialism on us when we don't want socialism, nor it's socialist healthcare.
8. how they showed Obamcare down our throat on xmas eve, without a single republican, socialism imposed on America when we were founded on freedom and government of the people, by the people not top down socialism, and how the media are traitors

It's a VP debate. It doesn't matter who "won" or not. The only thing that matters is whether or not either VP candidate did any harm to the ticket.

Ryan did no harm to the Romney ticket. Biden, based on this RNC ad, may have with his laughs and smirks at serious issues.

Agreed. The Romney camp needs to study up on Ronald Reagan's successful and devastating use of zingers in his presidential debates. It's a fine art in politics, which goes back a very long way.
