How Would You Rate Mr. Biden's Performance Compared To President Obama's?

An embaressment to say the least in regards to Biden.
Ryan showed calm, meassured leadership.
I am serious.
Biden is and has always been a Blowhard,This guy has been around for Decades and what accomplishments is he Known For?
He Blusters,Huffs and Puffs and gives that Fake Smile,Thats about the Extent of Bidens accomplishments
Biden spoke to the Democratic base, Ryan spoke to the country as a whole.
Good job Rep. Ryah!
I didn’t realize Biden was running against Obama.
Honest to goodness, who frames the polls for the WSJ?
This has absolutely no bearing on last night’s debate whatsoever. How did Biden score against Ryan? That’s the issue.
The irrelevance of this question, causes one to consider the relevance of the WSJ on this issue. Per this question, there is no relevance for the WSJ. It took itself out of the game on this one. What a shame.
Someone else on FR posted yesterday that Obama is an empty chair and Biden is the whoopie cushion.
Unfortunately for him A-hole can not be fixed.... it’s the A-Hole gene.
Biden wasn’t out to list accomplishments, he was out to win votes; I think he did so. Ryan showed up for an adult discussion, while Biden appealed to an electorate that gets it news from Comedy Central.
They needed another choice in the poll
I voted “about the same” in the poll but here in FR I’ll say what really happened:
Obama showed up unprepared, Romney showed up fairly well prepared... and it made a big difference.
Biden showed up ready to attack, Ryan showed up unable to counterattack... and it made all the difference (in perception).
The fact is, both Romney and Ryan took knives to a gun fight. The only difference in the two debates is that faggot Obama doesn’t know how to shoot a gun, Biden does.
If Romney/Ryan aren’t prepared to attack the SIZE of government (Romney did a little bit in his debate, Ryan not one iota in his) then they are showing up to gun fights armed with knives.
Romney is cruising for a fall. It won’t be that hard to put a gun in Obama’s hand and show him how to point it, even if he is a faggot.
If Romney isn’t prepared to attack the SIZE of government, then he is disarming himself in advance and is going to lose the next debate.
They used to say that Hillary Clinton reminded every divorced man of his first wife.
Last night, Joe Biden reminded every divorced woman of her first husband.
But even a loud and abusive first husband is better than ObamaZombie...
spot on. Biden knew he had to “get aggressive”. This is what he came up with.
In a truly laughable moment, watched a bit of CNN last night, and when I tuned in, they were talking about how Biden did such a good job and how impressive he was, etc. Then they showed their poll and Biden had lost 44 to 48. They still kept talking about how good he did. 44 was a great victory, in their minds.
It was all very comical.
Great Post, Very descriptive.
Ryan was cool, calculated and professional. I do think he was worried that Biden might jump on him or bite his ear.
I have to be honest. I could not judge the answers to any of the questions because I couldn’t bear watching Biden’s shitty grins and chuckles long enough to get the substance of the debates.
I had to turn it off and come back to it, and it just got worse. To me it was unwatchable, a farce.
I’m with you. Biden was giving me a headache and then he just plain made me angry. I had to turn the tv off before I threw something at it.
In your whole life, did you ever talk about politics to a Liberal who behaved ANY differently than old Joe?
Apologies to whoever posted that originally, but I've been looking for a new tag line. I'm stealing it. Heh, heh, heh.
Ryan was good but man did he piss me off when he suddenly was for abortion for health of the mother....that is such a crock. He used to be completely pro-life.
Quite frankly, I think Sarah did a much better job against “there you go again Joe” than did Ryan. Certainly Ryan was generally playing catch up as Joe did give the first response on most questions and Ryan was forced to address not only questionable statements made by Biden but try to work in a rebuttal to them while stating his own position.
If Biden was running for National Jerk, he won in a landslide. No wonder the Democrats keep him hidden away like a crazy uncle.
Obama has shown petty vindictiveness over the years from his message, “I won, get used to it” to his reaction to where he was born, in effect he has to react to the slightest poke, prod and accusation, something POTUS should never have to de.
Ryan established the image that he was more mature, saw Bidens childish strategy and failed to be baited like a cat seeing a laser pointer.
I voted the same, but for different reasons.
Biden acted like a pompous ass, while Obummer acted like the empty suit that he is.
Don't believe the discourse should get personal. If Michelle is not complaining about the size of Obama's government, neither should Romney............
Biden- Too ‘cute’ to be professional.
Obama- Too ‘absent’ to be either professional or unprofessional.
How do you compare a babbling fool with a toung-tied fool? Both are fools.
“...the A-Hole gene”
yeah, and everybody has one...
Well, one was a lying idiot, and the other a lying a-hole.
OK, so they can’t run on their record. Biden apparently thought he could win by acting the fool l and shouting over Ryan.
The votes are in a three way tie.
Biden did no better or no worse than hussein. They both were a disgrace in their own pathetic ways.
CBS was praising Biden and tore apart every little thing that Ryan said. Definitely one sided.
I can't believe that the “undecideds” we are after wouldn't see Ryan as the clear winner.
That segment of voter keeps telling us they don't like all fighting and acrimony.
I think Ryan won big.
Heh, big shocker there....
I would say their performance was about the same - terrible, but in different ways. Biden looked like a loud obnoxious drunk and Obama looked like he took a 30 day supply of xanax.
