The Joe Biden Workout

The vice president was everywhere at once. He probably won the debate. He definitely shed a few pounds.

By John Dickerson|Posted Friday, Oct. 12, 2012, at 3:09 AM ET

In the vice presidential debate, Joe Biden found a way to be both a participant and the guy in the Barcalounger at home yelling at the television. He interrupted Paul Ryan, moderator Martha Raddatz, and even himself with interjections, sighs, and quips. He appealed to the heavens, he looked to the floor. With all the activity, he surely shed calories. When he wasn’t engaged in those antics, Biden laughed and smiled to himself as if Ryan had sold him something illegal that he’d just consumed. At times his treatment was so dismissive, he seemed only a few threads of restraint from reaching across the table and patting Ryan on the head.

Biden won the debate,

A few days ago I posted a story that said the MSM had already decided that they would claim that Biden won the debate. I predicted the paid liars in the Media would praise Biden, criticize Ryan, and say Biden won no matter what actually happened.

Biden certainly didn't make it easy for these paid liars. They had to not just strain credibility but break it completely. But the media obediently followed the orders of the Democrat operatives who tell them what to write and what to say.

The liars in the media did exactly what they were told to do. The question is if anyone is stupid enough to believe their obvious lies.

I was shocked last night, when, after refusing to discuss politics with unlike mindless people,they insisted. These libs could not image another four years with Obama, go figure, I finally have a bit of hope.

All the Republicans have to do is run this ad, which was made within an hour after the debates.

He probably won the debate.

As decisive as that eh? That ain't enough to get the Democrats out of the Hole Obama dug for them.

Biden showed why there is no discussion and bipartisanship with Rats. When they cannot discuss and reason as adults they have to resort to antics. Laugh to distract then look directly at the camera and lie.

At the Obama/Romney debate, the Obamunists saw that the failures of the Obama regime are indefensible so they sent their circus clown out to disrupt the VP debate. Look for even another technique from the community organizer next Tuesday to keep Romney from displaying Obama’s incompetence, corruption, and failures.

I hope Rush plays “Their comming to take me away ha ha” today on his show.

He used to reserve that song for Ross Perot, I think.

Hopefully there is some talented Freeper who can take that song and put in shots of Biden laughing and smirking.

It would be an internet sensation on youtube.....

Millions of hit predicted...plus it would further decimate Biden’s performance last night.

The last time this was used was against Perot....

As the British would say, the media was gobsmacked by Obama’s performance. They were expecting a hand’s down win and they got caught flat-footed and weren’t able to spin with their favorite and coordinated talking points.

They were actually prepared for this debate.

Winners and Losers

I know it’s difficult, but looking at the debate in as non-partisan a way as possible—neither participant is supposed to “win.” And we all lost.

A dead Greek said the participant who presents the wrong side of an issue, but learns during the debate of his mistake, is the actual winner because although he began in darkness he left in light.

The public participated as well. Ryan attempted to serve the purposes of debate: enlightenment of all participants. You could read the frustration on his face as Biden mugged, interrupted, grunted and spoke over him throughout this ordeal, all the while grinning like a crocodile.

Joe crapped all over the public in attempting to score points and he left the debate as dense as when it began. We learned nothing that we didn’t know before—that the Democrats will do anything to win re-election.

I’m not sure what that was last night, but it wasn’t a debate. In this sense, we all lost.

Joe's constant interruption was a well calculated tactic.

Just when Ryan would begin to identify/spell out a Romney/Ryan plan for America's future, Joe would interrupt.

The result...? Ryan's point was muted and not heard. Damn clever, actually....

I sent it to the show, but I’m not a Rush 24/7 member so I don’t have the private email.

Al Gore rolled his eyes and signed, Biden smirked and cajoled. Creepy liberals.

Biden looked like the 'know it all' drunk uncle at the Christmas dinner who ruins it for everyone. Liberals are jerks. And NO we don't think they're superior.

We saw Biden as a classless jerk, the oblivious left saw their night in shinning armor and most of America saw MEH !

Biden was the drunk know-it-all uncle who ruins every Christmas dinner. Have you ever met the liberal who didn't think he was the smartest person in the room?

Gore rolled his eyes and sighed - he couldn't believe he was having to talk to a conservative. It was soooooooo beneath him. This was the same. It was insulting. Biden's a bore. A creepy old man jerk. And yeah,no matter what he said, he lost.

You're wrong.

Biden wasn't 'clever' , Biden was an obnoxious jerk. I guess you think the 'know it all' drunken Uncle is 'cleaver' when he takes over every conversation at the family Christmas dinner.

Grow up Victor. Being a jerk isn't 'clever'.

I wouldn’t want to have to defend the last four years and (apparently) neither did Joe.
If you don’t have the law, argue the facts; if you don’t have the facts, argue the law. If you don’t have the facts or the law, abuse the plaintiff.
Joe took that to mean, “abuse the public.” That was a truly classless performance on his part.

"...Grow up Victor. Being a jerk isn't 'clever'....."

It was a tactic to take Ryan's message off-focus....a pre-conceived, chess-like tactic.

Only a grown-up could see that, however.....

Joe certainly didn’t want to point out all of Obama’s NON-accomplishments. Overall this faux debate had no effect.
