Skip to comments.Joe Biden Is the Happy Warrior [who birthed an intelligence scandal]

....The 2012 debate season began with a lay-up,a Mitt Romney victory that shattered every record in the history of snap polling. Style. Crispness of answers. Eye contact. Their candidate had every advantage that the focus groups crave.
Then came Joe Biden. Imagine youre a liberal,and think of all the lines you wanted Barack Obama to use against Mitt Romney....Did Biden forget any of them? Or did he pull a San Diego Fourth of July fireworks display and spray them all at once?.....
.....An hour after the debate ended,the [RNC] released a super-cut of every Biden laugh,claiming that he was laughing at the issues,not deriding Ryan. Republicans have enjoyed plenty of success by clipping the worst parts of quotes and sending them to media. Maybe it could work again!
....After moderator Martha Raddatz kept asking Biden for answers on Libya,and why four Americans had been killed in an attack on the Benghazi consulate,Biden claimed that we weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there. In most debates, Bidens able to expectorate a line like that and get away with it....
...It was shocking to think that the vice president doesnt know that assets were requested in Libya,said [Chaffetz],who knew it because his House Oversight Committee had just held a hearing where diplomats talked about the needs. Rich Williamson,a former Bush ambassador whom the Romney campaign deploys to bemoan Obamas horrible weakness,suggested that Biden had birthed a scandal.

the comments at the site are full of moonbattery
There was on moment within the first 1/2 hour or so when Biden ended a statement by saying he wouldn’t talk about something due to national security.
I thought that the perfect intro for Ryan to have said “That didn’t keep you from telling the world it was the Navy Seals who raided Bin-Laden”.
And then Raddatz moved the topic away from Libya before Ryan could respond to the claim that it was an intel failure when State knew in real-time that there was no protest and it was a terror attack.
———And then Raddatz-——
Raddatz......... I kept wondering. Is that a real woman or a surgically manufactured transvestite?
Just another butt-ugly liberal hag who looks like she chugged pickle juice before going on-camera.
