Wallace: 'Most Disrespectful Debate Performance In My Lifetime'
Fox Nation ^ | 10/11/2012 | Chris Wallace

Posted on 10/11/2012 10:48:42 PM PDT by Snuph

Video at link....

Fox News’ Chris Wallace speaking shortly tonight’s VP debate said, “I don’t believe I have ever seen a debate in which one participant was as openly disrespectful of the other as Biden was to Paul Ryan.” Wallace cited Biden’s facial gestures and phrases such as “malarkey” and “stuff.”

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.

Saturday Night LIve won the veep debate. Which is great, since that’s where 20% of America gets it’s political news.

... and then they are going to have a choice as to how to portray Ryan. This is where his calm and cool wins for him. They’re not going to portray Ryan as a wimp who cowered at Biden, they will portray a normal intelligent guy looking at the Biden character with a ‘WTF’ expression every time he makes a sound.

What’s interesting about the 4 point CNN/ORC poll is that they make specific mention that the random sample came in as R/D/I 34/31/35 ... and they go on to say that it represents more Republicans than normal polls ... when in fact what they are citing is a model that represents more closely the actual partisan make up of the country in 2012. That is also good news. Maybe they are just realizing it.

This debate has quietly served to reassure independent voters who moved to Romney after the 1st debate that they made a wise decision. I doubt the polls will move at all, however what can’t be measured by the polls is ‘How much did the debate strengthen, rather than advance, the surge.’

Great night for Ryan (and Romney.)

Obama and Biden campaign dragged their own respect level down yet another one or two notches.

Fun night for the dem base, but over the next week they are going to be wondering why the rest of America, including many in their beloved MSM and the polls, don’t see it the way they do.

The Romney have to create an ad showing Joe’s stupid smiles and fake laughter and at the same showing images of high gas prices, burning embassys, Soyndra, etc...caption saying “Hey Joe, this is a big f&%$^#g deal. With the state our country is in , this is not a time for laughter.” and then ask voters, “Can we truly put our trust in so called leaders like Barack Obama and Joe Biden who can’t treat serious issues seriously?”

All the Romney campaign has to do is show Paul Ryan trying to make his case while Joe Biden is lauging in real time... and also have news reports of all the problems we face showing Biden laughing.

With headline graphics like this:


OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 Where everything is a laughing matter to them: Benghazigate - National Debt - High Gas Prices - People out of work.



Other than the factor of voter fraud and the Main Stream Media got their back, Obama/Biden has lost the election.

They are going to try to pull a win out in the bottom of the 9th inning with voter fraud and stuffing the ballots and a repeat of the 2000 election..

You’re right. I feel that a lot of Americans were totally disgusted at what they saw tonight. Biden didn’t do Soetoro any favors. Joe’s antics tonight are only going to make things worse for the commies down at “Team Obama”.

It has moved the undecided women voters into the Romney/Ryan column by showing women that these two clowns don’t care about people suffering and by Biden laughing is shows women that this is how Obama and Biden react towards people’s misery.

“I doubt the polls will move at all,...”

That’s what I thought, too. But I’m starting to revise my opinion for a couple of reasons...

1. The appearance - Biden’s bozo act will be the thing that will be remembered whenever the VP debate is brought up. This is not going to sit well with independents.

2. Some of the “factual” statements he made regarding what and when the administration knew regarding the Libya disaster is only going to intensify the scrutiny of the subject. Not going to be good for Obama.

3. Additionally there were the typical Biden gaffes and inaccuracies that will be uncovered in the postmortem. One that comes to mind is that he said he voted against the Iraqi and Afghan wars, when in fact he voted for both.

Your ad would be better but this is the best response with an internet ad yet from the GOP.

This was out within an hour of the debate and has been all over algore's "internets".

Great progress, we are starting to get it and I like the response!

I wouldn’t have brought it up if Biden hadn’t mentioned it in the debate, but Biden once again cited the death of his first wife as if it somehow made him noble. Biden is a despicable, arrogant, bore, with delusions of grandeur and some just plain old delusions. If you think that this is the type of person that you want to as second in line to be president, you might have some mental problems, too.

“As late as 2007 Biden said that the man who was involved in the fatal crash that killed his
wife and daughter was a “guy who allegedly ... drank his lunch” before he got behind the wheel of his truck and in 2001 the TV show Inside Edition aired a tape of Biden saying the truck driver “stopped to drink instead of drive.” Additionally, several media outlets have included the drunk driver claim in their bios of the Senator from Delaware.”

The truth is that the truck driver was a tea totaler and his wife was distracted and took her foot off the brake at the light and just rolled through the red light into the intersection in front of the moving truck. Witnesses said that she was turned around facing the boys in the back seat at the time of the accident.

Biden’s first wife was my sister-in-law’s roommate at Syracuse. I heard the lies about his wife’s death from my sister-in-law, told through tears and anger that the police refused to do anything about the “drunken truck driver”.

aquila48 - Yeah I can see that ... and I think this debate will have many invisible, structural benefits.

In a way it’s a lot like the Obama debate -> while policy differences came out of both, what really came out of both was an exposition of who Obama and Biden are ... simply as men - even apart from their policy.

Just 90 minutes each, to show America not so much what Obama and Biden think, but who they really are as men - and it’s probably all it will have taken to dispense with the Obama era.

A funny thing is that after all the sound and fury, and with 90 minutes each, neither Obama nor Biden has shown America one single piece of evidence supporting the primary premise of their only remaining offensive: That Mitt and Paul are liars. (I guess they still have tax cuts for the rich ... but that seems to not be getting any traction.)

So yeah - I’m agreed.

Pathological laughter:

Pathological laughter, though common in organic and psychotic disorders, can present primarily as an obsessive-compulsive phenomenon as well.

According to the Mayo Clinic, this laughter can stem from a variety of neurological disorders and can make it extremely difficult (sometimes impossible) for individuals to control their manifestation of mirth, even if they see no humor in a situation.

Biden played to a lot of average Americans that thought Obama’s performance was an embarrassing exposure of his weaklnesses; he might have won some of them back. Ryan’s debate prep should have been having those nasty kids from that school-bus attack on their driver (where they drove her to tears) simply shout insults at him for an hour and a half...
