"It’s called politics,Ryan should know this.Ryan is terrible"


Crazy Joe Biden's schizophrenia was on national display for all to see tonight. Biden's mental illness symptoms prove he is unfit to hold the office of the Vice President.

Let me translate the above into liberal speak so you can better understand it: "hahaha hehehe hohoho.." (followed by uncontrollable condescending smirking, crazy repeated sentences and lip biting).

Reminds me of the crazy person outside the post office today who was running up to people damning them to hell and laughing uncontrollably. Joe Biden is that crazy uncle you won't let your children alone with.

Well the Undecided in the Focus Groups have a much different take on this the political junkies on either the Left or the Right.

They hated Biden

Interesting to note all the Leftist propaganda outlet AND ABC News were out with headlines about "Smiling Joe steals the debate" within minutes of the ending. Seems that is the pre programed propaganda line from the Obama Regime tonight.

Need to FREEP the cnn poll: Who fared better in the debate?
Current results are: Biden 66% Ryan 34%.... That pretty much reflects their viewer political leanings IMHO.

According to this article, she's now set the bar for future moderators (GAG!):

This was not a debate, it was a god-damned disgrace.
It was nothing short of an ambush.
The winner of tonight’s debate was David Axelrod.
The loser was ABC, as they will never again be able to fool anyone of objectivity.
I don’t care who did well or poorly, I recognise a Stalinist show trial when I see one.

Dick Morris said Biden was a charicature of a politician. IMO Biden was like a guy you meet in a bar who has a standard slimy line and just makes your skin crawl.

Since people wondered about how this appealed to women well I just thought Biden was disgusting. But Ryan was too timid. Where was the comment about Obama’s budgets not getting even 1 vote???? I wish Ryan had been stronger although his ending statements were good.

What is the status of the new servers? Will we have them by next week’s debate?

One thing we must never put past "the regime" is its ability to "spontaneously" provide Directed Denial of Service attacks (DDOS) that even the biggest of servers can be gimped by.

Free Republic is a huge entity that this commie bastard regime despises and wants to shutter.

Talk about BS....All of the networks cut away after the debate to analysis. Not one single network is airing the Republican response to tonight’s Biden/ABC soliloquy. Not one!

>I was voting for RR anyway, but never had an opportunity to really hear Ryan for an extended period of time. And I still haven’t had an opportunity to hear Paul Ryan speak for an extended period of time!!!<

Someone upthread said Biden accomplished his goal - to keep Ryan from getting his message out effectively. I think Biden will be a drag on the ticket. He came across as such an ass people have been turned off. Do you want to vote for someone you dislike? I don’t.

"I agree, I'm totally turned off by the petulant child biden is, screaming and ranting while Ryan is speaking as an adult. "

I think a lot of people were turned off by Biden's laughing, his smirks, his interruptions, and off-screen noises he made while Ryan was talking. He came across as a bully and a thug. Obama thinks he was "too polite" during the first debate with Romney. If he decides to use the same thuggish behavior as Biden tonight, it isn't going to go over very well.

I agree.

Biden came off as arrogant, petulant, and dismissive. Rude.

Ryan kept his cool, delivered a couple of zingers, and showed incredible command of details.

Ryan was simply the more likeable, better informed candidate.
