Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.s bizarre behavior in Thursday nights debate was no accident. The exaggerated expressions and overheated theatrics were meant to distract the public from arriving at the obvious conclusion: This administration has no viable solutions to Americas problems.
ABCs Martha Raddatz, moderating the debate, asked Mr. Biden what he would do about the $16.2 trillion debt besides raising taxes on the wealthy. The former Delaware senator had no direct response. Instead, he launched an attack on Mitt Romneys plan to provide tax relief for everyone. Mr. Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, summarized the problem aptly: We asked the Congressional Budget Office, Tell us what President Obamas plan is to prevent a debt crisis. They said, Its a speech. We cant estimate speeches.
The biggest driver of our debt is Medicare, so any solution to the debt crisis necessarily involves taking on entitlement reform. The Ryan-Romney ticket proposes to allow those under 55 years old to choose their own health care at retirement (with standard Medicare as one of the options). Their detailed proposal would reduce benefit increases for the wealthy and slowly raise the eligibility age to rein in costs. The current administration, on the other hand, further weakened Medicare by pilfering $716 billion from its trust fund to pay for Obamacare. Instead of proposing an alternative, the vice president spent two uninterrupted minutes denying the facts. When Mr. Ryan tried to speak on the topic, Mr. Biden interrupted him 18 times.

The so-called moderator was at fault for the whole fiasco. It was her responcibility to keep order. Whe Biden interupted Ryan she should have spoken up. She could have said: “Mr. Biden, interupt one more time and I will give Ryan one more minite of your time’ That would have shut him up.
Martha was the perfect foil for Cackle & Smirk Biden ... I almost wish the nation would collapse, so these vermin would be ground under in the chaos. But then I think of my grandkids and what it would do to them ... faster than what the degenerate democrap party is planning probably.
Perhaps the Vice President deliberately exaggerated himself to throw the debate and the election away. Biden now knows Obama & Co. more than anyone. Maybe this knowledge terrifies him. Alternatively, they consider their mission to destroy America sufficiently accomplished.
If we've lost the ability to comprehend that the Joe cackle and smirks are the enemy of this Republic and thus We The People, then they have accomplished the most important phase of their destruction of same.
