Biden Embraces the Democratic Dark Side

By Chris Stirewalt

Published October 12, 2012

“I think it deserves to be laughed at. I think it deserves our scorn, and I think they should be ashamed of themselves.”

-- Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, head of the Democratic Governor’s Association, talking to reporters after the vice presidential debate, explaining that Vice President Joe Biden was right to laugh and jeer at Rep. Paul Ryan’s fiscal plan, which O’Malley called “crap.”

President Obama’s top political advisor, David Axelrod, jumped in and took over debate preparations for Vice President Joe Biden, according to a senior Democratic source who told FOX News colleague Ed Henry that Biden was “all over the place” in his early practice sessions.

Based on Biden’s performance, one wonders what Axelrod brought to the process. Perhaps a DVD of “The Shining.”

Biden’s cackling and grinning and constant interruptions have been compared to then-Vice President Al Gore’s sighs during a 2000 debate with George W. Bush. But while Gore’s sighs were passively aggressive, Biden was just plain old aggressive, rude even.

Power Play warned on Thursday of the dangers of Biden swinging too hard in an effort to undo the shellacking Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney delivered to President Obama last week and Biden certainly fell into the trap.

Biden was trying to come across as a man bemused, an old campaigner who just had to laugh at the little whippersnapper who was spouting nonsense. Instead, Biden came across as an angry man who gave no fair hearing to his challenger and refused to listen.

Biden not only embraced the dark side, he helped create it.

Raddatz Visited Biden at His Residence in March

October 12, 2012 10:31 AM

White House records reveal that the moderator of last night’s vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News.

As the records show, that day Raddatz visited the VPR (or, the vice president’s residence) for a “Women’s History Month Reception.” That record was released on June 29, 2012.

With each passing day, Joe Biden fares worse and worse. First, he lost the VP Debate to Paul Ryan in style, looking like and acting like a crazed, buffoon!!! The first item a good public speaker and debater learns, is to look relaxed, professional and focused as your opponent delivers his or her debate response. Biden failed miserably!!! Second, although on debate night, Joe Biden seemed to do OK in the substance area, the truth now emerges about his multiple outright lies and misleading, incorrect statements.

So.....in reality, Joe Biden lost the VP debate, hands down to Paul Ryan. I must admit he had a bit of hellp from debate moderator, Martha Raddatz. Poor woman wanted to do her left wing, liberal, Obamabot thing, but....in the end...she only made it worse for Biden......and of course, herself. Whatever fifteeen minutes of fame she thinks she had is gone and so is she, forever!!!

The Romney/Ryan campaign rally crowds continue to swell, Obama is in hiding...and Biden after his smashing (in his own mind) debate victory over Ryan on Thursday evening was only able to draw 2000 college students, Hippies, Has Beens and Labor Union Goons, a motley crew at best, at a rally last evening (Friday). Not good!!! ABO!!! Darn it folks.....make sure you just simply get out and vote to rid our great nation of Obama/Biden, forever!!!

Best comment I’ve heard on Biden yet:

“During the debate, Biden demonstrated what a brilliant move it was for Obama to bring him on as VP.
Biden is Obama’s insurance policy against getting the “Kennedy Treatment “.

Biden entered public life FULLY owned by the dark side. I have watched this damaged human being for a very long time. I watched his attempts to destroy good men like Bork and Thomas- far better men than Biden will EVER be. Biden came into office after a college career built on the plagiarized work of others and it was a failing he was never made to answer for. The reason for THIS, is that Biden is NOT a “nice” man, a “great guy”- he is a very willing demonRAT attack junk-yard dog. ANY time the demons want to destroy decent qualified Americans, they let “uncle” Joe off his leash. The remarks I have heard this week, after Biden’s ridiculous, probably bourbon-soaked, performance, about being a “nice guy” have truly elevated the puke factor.

The only preparation the left needed to give Joe is his shouted commands “Sic ‘em Joe! Kill!”

“Ryan was deferential to a fault, giving the 69-year-old incumbent a wide berth and speaking quietly and respectfully. But Biden showed no generosity to the younger man, and instead was dripping with mockery and scorn.”


Biden made Ryan his bitch. Just once I would Have liked to hear Ryan tell Biden to shut up.

Ever heard of giving a man enough rope to hang himself? That is what Ryan did.

Or I would have loved to have seen Ryan ask Biden what the hell was so hilarious about our citizens being slaughtered by terrorists in Libya. But he let the opportunity pass.

The only people who thought Biden won on the issues (ignoring the bizarre facial expressions and rudeness) are the ones who believed his lies. Basically, as has been proven by Breitbart.com, Biden continually lied on a variety of issues. So he's not only mentally unbalanced, he's a mentally, unbalanced liar.

What's really disturbing is other top level Dems who think it's perfectly fine during a debate to interrupt your opponent, make weird faces, noises, and otherwise behave like a jackass. By condoning and approving of Biden's bizarre behavior, O'Malley makes himself as big a scoundrel as Biden.

If he had asked Biden what was so funny about our people getting killed in Libya, that would have been a knockout punch right there. He would have won the debate by a landslide.

Bitch, my ass. Vice President Ryan went in there to do one thing- advance the Romney agenda and help President Romney win the election. It would've been satisfying for Vice President Ryan to give Biden the Woodrow Call branding-iron beating, but it wouldn't have helped President Romney win any more votes.

Biden got the Regressives fired up, but now Obama's campaign is hemmhoraging.

The dark side. Yep, that's absolutely the case.

I have believed for a long time that Biden is actually the puppet master running the show and his "uncle Joe" schtick is just cover. He's so good at it, no one suspects and people laugh when you bring it up, but you can't argue with his success.

Something about Biden's bizarre behavior during the "debate" reminded me of something, but other than dealing with an old alcoholic who's had that "one drink too many" and changed from Dr Jekyll to Mr Hyde, I couldn't put my finger on it.

Finally while mowing the yard, I remembered the evil Senator Palpatine's taunts and cackling laughter during his final battle with Yoda on his way to becoming The Emperor. That was it.

Biden is the evil Sith Lord coming face to face with young apprentice Ryan. True to character, Biden had nothing, but he and the hostess used their darkside progressive mojo as best they could against the young apprentice.

Ryan, while not as experienced, was strong in the force and kept his cool. Time for a new hope.

If Obama is re elected she may be back as next in line.

Only if the Dems retake the House which isn't going to happen.

“Biden’s cackling and grinning and constant interruptions have been compared to then-Vice President Al Gore’s sighs...”

Or like Chevy Chase making faces and mocking Jane Curtin behind her back in those SNL skits where they’re newscasters.
