Fiery Biden sets stage for Obama recovery attempt
Reuters ^ | October 12, 2012 | By Patricia Zengerle

(Reuters) - Joe Biden's spirited performance in the vice presidential debate had Republicans criticizing him for snide grins and a comment on Libya, but it set the stage for President Barack Obama to try to regain his footing during a rematch with challenger Mitt Romney next Tuesday.

Greg Valliere, who analyzes politics for investors at Potomac Research Group, said he thought Ryan "won on points," but that Biden energized the Democrats and stopped the slide.

"This entertaining debate was all about Biden, who easily cleared a low bar," Valliere said in a note to clients on Friday.

Obama will not be any more prepared than he was the first time.
He will be made a fool of again and again and again.
He isn’t capable of making important decisions.

That’s just not possible. It’s almost over... 25 more days.

I can see why they think that Biden energized their base.

The majority of “their base” think that yelling the F word and mooning you is “winning a debate”.

Again, the pigeon analogy that I love so much:

Debating a liberal is like playing chess with a pigeon.
No matter how well you play chess,
the pigeon just knocks over the pieces,
craps on the board,
utters unintelligible vaguely obscene sounds,
and struts around like he won something.

All the debate did was energize the other rude and nasty dems that support bambi, Biden played to the dem base. He did not gain any votes at all for the ticket, and probably lost a few more. But I don’t doubt that the corrupt polls will show a bounce for bambi in the next few days.

What was it Clint Eastwood said...”Biden is the intellect of the Democrat Party...the smile in front of the body”...

It would be laughable and it was when Eastwood said it..however, I kept thinking last night.

Biden is a heartbeat away from the presidency.

God help us!!

Sitting through last night's painful ordeal, I kept thinking I was hearing again the YouTube video of the woman with the free Obamaphone.

“Fiery Biden”? - That’s what happens after you eat those really hot peppers.

“What happened, Bob? It sounded like you were screaming in the bathroom.”

“I was! I was taking a Fiery Biden!”

Another one: (Warning: EXTREMELY NOT-POLITICALLY-CORRECT)

Winning a debate with a liberal is like winning the Special Olympics: Yeah, you may have won, but you have to be a f****g retard to have even played at all.

Yes, Ryan actually said that. It was ignored then, and I’ve seen not a single mention of it, post-debate. I’ve heard plenty of complaints that he should have, at some point, said something like that to Biden, when in fact, he did.

Fiery Biden.....the Chevy Volt of politicians. No one wants one. Another piece of over-priced government crap.Wouldn’t be around except someone bailed him out (the press). Living on the taxpayer’s dollar. After four years, he’s worthless and needs to be replaced.

Bad times for al-Reuters. Their rock-star President who hates the United States as much as they do is fading into the election. Oh, if only the enlightened Europeans could vote in the American election!

In fact, it's high time for them and their American MSM counterparts to stick a sock in it. Slow Joe wasn't "fiery", he was crass, ignorant, obnoxious, and an embarrassment to his country. Only our enemies could wish to perpetuate this disaster of an administration, which describes al-Reuters perfectly.

Fiery Biden Sets Stage for Obama Recovery Attempt / Reuters

One becomes almost convinced that if only Joey had brought jacks and a rubber ball to the table, he could have sewed the whole thing up for the ticket.

Nice try Rooters...

Democratic U.S. Representative Chris Van Hollen, who helped Biden prepare, said he expected Obama to come out swinging during the town-hall style contest on Tuesday

I think the Democrats have deluded themselves into believing that Biden's antics last night is a winning strategy. Obama will try to follow suit, and could very well try to out-Biden Biden in next week's debate. If he does, it will be an absolute disaster for the Obama campaign.

It’s good that he did it, agreed, but it bothers me that not only was it ignored by the other side (expected), Ryan’s own side didn’t seem to notice the remark, the gentle admonishment to Biden to stop doing what he was doing. Because some of them complained that he didn’t even try to admonish Biden, and I heard not a soul mention that he actually did it. Well, until a FReeper mentioned it...

I can’t imagine that acting like that in a town hall format would come across well.

Patty, enough with the BS SPIN. Nobody is listening to you frauds any longer. You can cook a poll and continue to pretend THE FOREIGNER is in this race if it makes you feel better. But come November you frauds are going to be awfully disappointed.

Apparently “Patty” is the Rooters reporterette who wrote this drivel.

I don’t think the poster was accusing you of anything, rather it was this media they were accusing, but they posted it to you.

Obama will not be any more prepared than he was the first time.


Before the last debate, he spent his time with Beyonce and “the pimp with the limp (?).” I suspect he snorted cocaine off of a celebrity butt. Which one is anyone’s guess.

Yes he did. Biden literally laughed that off and kept interrupting him. I think he may even have tried to interrupt Ryan while Ryan was saying that.
