Biden is their great white hope? HAHAHAHAHAHA
Biden will be at his most condescending, sarcastic, vicious arrogance, and Martha lets-pretend-I’m-an-objective-moderator Raddatz will give him plenty of leeway to use it. I hope Ryan’s ready.
You can't defend the defenseless.
I’m from Delaware and am very familiar with Joe Biden. I am a conservative Republican and have watched then Senator Biden for 20 plus years. I believe America is in for a surprise Thursday night. The expectations are that Biden will say something stupid or be left wanting at the feet of Paul Ryan. Joe Biden is one of the best politicians in the country and will not be made the fool. I’ve never voted for him, but I respect the man like no other.
Biden will study the wrong notes and be his usual bizarre out of touch with reality ass hat that he always has been.
Ryan: “I’ll grow our economy again like Reagan”.”
Biden: “I knew John Kennedy. Worked with John Kennedy. You sir are no John Kennedy.”
I remember the Quayle/Benson debate very well. It STILL makes me burn. Lloyd Benson was a nasty old man that makes Reid look like...well...a Mormon! The fact that he was up against such a decent, polite man as Dan Quayle must have had that old goat drooling. When he made his snarky, now famous, below the belt remark, I was SCRRRRReaming at the TV- “Neither are YOU Benson. JFK LEARNED you cannot tax and spend your way to a good economy. It is a lesson YOU have not learned.”
You KNOW that this is a moment Biden wants to re-create. He is a nasty, lying, goof who will use every attack he can think of against Ryan. But my impression is, Paul Ryan is NO Dan Quayle. I certainly am entertained by Gaff-tastic Joe.
Ryan needs to hammer the facts without sounding wonky. Biden should not be underestimated; he will be prepared. He knows there’s a lot on the line here. While he can’t compete on the facts, he will be prepared to come off as “folksy.” He won’t mail it in like 0bama.
The other problem is that this is the one and only VP debate, so it’s not topic specific. A huge advantage for Biden, as Ryan won’t be able to concentrate his preparation on specific topics. Biden will, as he will have all the questions in advance.
Lets be serious...very few people vote for the Veep except for the last holdouts in your base.
The VP debate is about the VEEP representing the President. Ryan needs to keep this in focus, since as the collective light bulb went off and now America knows, Obama’s record is indefensible. Romney approach was simple, you are lying about me but let’s talk about you..... this is what Reagan did in 1980....
Ryan could make Biden look like the idiot he is by using complex economic terminology that Biden isn’t aware of. Just a couple of words and Biden is toast.
I think the best we can hope for is a tie. Biden is a highly aggressive shameless liar who will be fanatically protected by the moderator. Going to be pretty tough to win a debate with someone who simply makes up their facts as they go along.
I think this is just part of the Mass Media set up for the big “Obama the comeback kid” spin we are going to hear after the Oct 16 Presidential Debate.
And I understand that Biden must have some political abilities to have lasted this long in politics.
But I also know what my own lying eyes and ears have shown me of Joe Biden over the last four years - he is an idiot. A dumbass babbling moron. An absolutely clueless twit who has no understanding of the world and even less of an understanding of how he is supposed to perform his own rather limited duties.
If, as some say, he was ever politically savvy, he must have been eating lead paint chips off the wall at Cheney's house over the last few years.
If you look real close when he gets mad you can see where they did Biden’s lobotomy.
Hope all this ‘hoop-la’ over the first debate, doesn’t put a jinx on RnR. In the words of Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over”.
I wonder if Biden might damage the Obama campaign by being too honest, for instance, by acknowledging that some of the Obama ideas do indeed have flaws.
I might even tune in to see Biden’s comedy act. Ryan will beat him with an idiot stick.
Keep praying for Ryan and Romney.
Four weeks left to save a nation.
If Biden makes a fool of himself, the momentum will build into a crescendo to elect Romney. We need enough votes to counter any potential voter fraud by the Dems.
