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.
Patriciamary; Aka concern troll: Pls take your nitwittery elsewhere. Go back to DUmmyville
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 don’t except 66/34% for a moment
CNBC flash poll Ryan 53, Biden 42 41,403 polled
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.
I don’t accept 66/34% (Biden/Ryan) for a moment.
As with the first debate thread, I kept getting messages that FR servers were not responding. At least during the first debate, I could eventually get to a post reply page, and had a little more success that night in being able to post a reply or two. Tonight, I couldn’t even get the pages to refresh, or get to a post reply page. It was worse tonight.
I am watching the post debate talk on Fox Business with cavuto and Senator Ron Johnson and Herman cain hammered Biden for his attitude and demeanor in this debate. Cain called the debate a farce and a joke. Ron was very critical of Biden not letting Ryan finish his statements. Ron said clearly Paul Ryan won and Biden had to resort to bully tactics as usual.
When did he do that?
All I ever saw him do was say we must secure the SCOTUS.
I agree with that and think SCOTUS has to much power.
We NEED THE Senate
I think that Biden's brutish, obnoxious behavior will be seen by the people as an example of what is wrong in Washington.
YOU are wasting valuable bandwidth with your constant need for attention to validate your feelings. With all due respect, you are either naive on the process or ignorant on the issues, but either way, a personal blog would probably be more valuable for you and less annoying to us.
That is all.
CNN poll: Ryan wins 48-44.
Personally, when faced with a ranting liberal, I adopt the exact same attitude that I would with an injured animal, a child throwing a tantrum or psychologically unbalanced mental patient.
None of the above are able to control their emotions/thought process, therefore they tend to lash out blindly.
I consider it an act of Christian mercy.
Having said all that, if one ever physically lays a paw on me, I’m gonna hurt ‘em bad.
Um, the recent Obama/Roberts-Care debacle, and at the time of the comment they were addressing Row Vs Wade which was another terrible decision
Let’s hope her feelings represent those of Independent and Democrat women as well.
The left will celebrate tonight , the general public are idiots and will think Biden won and made up for Obamas poor showing . You have to realize most people are stupid as shit. We can only hope that we outnumber the stupid ones and the Marxist pig Obama gets fired ..If not it’s all over
Oh, my. Dare I ask, WTF you are talking about? I see Viking Kitties in your near future!
About halfway thru I got a “sever not found” error for a few minutes. Other than that, it was sluggish.
I've been hearing the same carrot/stick routine for years now re 'new servers / bigger pipe / etc etc' and performance has only gotten slower over time.
Given the miserable latency for the past two debates, there's NO WAY IN HELL this site will cope with a Presidential election in 26 DAYS !
I love FR, but these ridiculous lag times just ain't kosher . . .
Did y’all notice that Biden did not curse even once! He knows how not to.
And he had the questions. Knew the SCOTUS comment was coming.......
But Libya is now the same size a Afghanistan
And intel didn’t tell 0bama OR H3ll about threats. AKA CIA, AKA Petraeus. Bull chit.

#VPDebate : It was Captain Smirk vs. Mr. Spock
Paul Ryan won!
Biden lied and the embassador and 3 others died!
CNN poll....Ryan wins 48-44.
CNN Poll 48 Ryan 44 Biden
The Left can lie to themselves all they want. The Undecideds see it different
And I like her new doo...
Paul Ryan won!
Biden lied and the embassador and 3 others died!
CNN breaking news banner: Ryan wins 48-44! Stune my beeber.
He claimed to be a “practicing Catholic” [maybe someday he’ll get it right] yet he fully supports killing babies.
I can’t imagine the psychotic split necessary to reconcile one with the other.
I can’t do it.
I would expect that constantly trying to ‘juggle’ the will of God versus baby killing could drive you insane.
He’s just another demonic, to me.
If they ever remake “The Stand”, he should audition for The Walking Dude.
He was evil incarnate and jovial as Hell, too.
[pun perhaps intended]
Check out his sign-up date and his four (!) posts. He’s a troll.
I could not get past the first page (comments 1-50) of the debate thread until after the debate was over!
Ryan asked one critical question that Joe neglected and that question won him the debate. He asked the American people for their vote.
NBC puts video on You Tube catching Lyin’ Joe in action:
Epic fail tonight for Obama!
“CNN destroyed Biden- especially Gergen; said he looked childish and condescending...said it wont go over well with the American people...”
Nice. CNN is starting to be unhappy with Obama more and more.
Krauthammer’s take on tonight’s debate:
You might be right because Chris Wallace was very upset about the behavior.
Yep - ABC - Always Be Closing.
It’s CNN, FFS.
Who watches CNN but liberals?
I had to ‘search’ on my DirecTV to even find out the number for the CNN channel.
I think that as the days go by, Biden’s stupid mannerisms are going to be all that is remembered from this debate...and that will only help us.
If you really want the pulse of the female vote, then what does Shemp Smith say?
Sorry about the downtime tonight. Dont know what happened there other than our system became overloaded. Still dont know when John is planning on installing the new equipment, but hoping it is soon. This was very disappointing.
And this one yesterday in response to a question:
No new equipment yet. Hopefully soon. Thanks!
Yeah, well, they are totally different countries.
[whatever that meant]
The MSM, having been groin-kicked last time will now make sure the narrative aggrandizes Obeyme.
>LoL! Where at? North Korea? <
That would be a great place for her. That’s assuming they’d take her.
At the beginning of the panel Luntz asked about Biden's demeanor during the debate and I think all but 1 woman on the panel expressed that they weren't impressed with "bully" Biden.
I thought that act would turn off the lady vote and it seems like the panel confirms.
