Biden kept smirking, smiling, sneering, interrupting, overtalking and being sarcastic when Ryan spoke.........
Bidens rudeness to Ryan, his uproarious laughter, snorts and sneers, his hectoring and mugging displayed Dems' in an evil light---according to some women.....
Women who've suffered spousal abuse said they could barely watch the debate-b/c they were unnerved by Bidens antics. They say Biden eerily reminded them of abusive husbands. All the tactics abusive men use to brutalize and demean, to make women feel inadequate and unimportant were the tactics they saw Biden use:
(1) not listening to their side,
(2) interrupting when they dared speak up,
(3) laughing and mugging when they tried to air their grievances,
(4) demeaning and marginalizing them for daring to disagree,
(5) asserting superority to keep them subjugated,
(6) showing contempt when they tried to defend themselves,
(7) being condescending to them and disdainful of their views.
I’m waiting for Robin of Berserkeley to weigh in on this. She’d probably echo the same thing, a little more eruditely.
Women think Ryan is good-looking, and yes some women is are that shallow. My ultra-liberal Aunt mentioned she was considering supporting R/R only because Paul Ryan is such a cutie and she doesn’t really like Obama or Romney.
I think the VP debate hurt the Obama/Biden ticket with women voters.

Glad to hear this.
If you have a link for that, I’d love to see it.
I was trying to convince a program guy that watching Joe was like being with my alcoholic Grandfather after a couple martinis.
Maybe I should go to some Al-Anon meetings.
Liz, not to doubt you (I don’t) but do you have a link for this? I’d love to show it to my Left wing friends!
