YouTube w/ ABC News/Yahoo! coverage
Romney's "reach across the aisle" side should be shut down. This should now be obvious to him.
Seriously, Is Sarah running for office?
That focus group was not very informed nor educated.. they didn’t know when biden was lying? And anyone who is not a far left liberal, and have not made up their minds yet... what else do they need?..for crying out loud!
I want to see adults in charge and Obama and Biden are not it. Those childish smirks and laughing over Libya and our economic situation are not the response of a sane adult. I actually came away from the debate thinking that Biden may have some mental issues that should be addressed.
If this debate moved the needle at all then Romney/Ryan just gained more of the women and independent voters.
Talking about the past also made Joe seem old. He’s had his shot.
I was worried early. Then realized on style Joe was going Al Gore condescending.
True. He was out there only with no moderator.
Bottom line... Ryan had the facts and Biden didn’t want the viewers to hear Ryan. Like road rage - kept cutting him off.
“If you heard it on radio, Biden won. If you watched it on television, he lost.”
Funny, but that’s exactly what they said about the Nixon/Kennedy debates.
I agree that was one of Biden's objectives. RNC chairman Priebus said, Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times. Now, throw in Raddatz's interruptions cutting into Ryan's statements, the interrupts likely approaches 100.
It would be nice if someone would point out that Biden sat at the highest levels of government during the years leading up to that "bad situation". It's like a pilot saying he inherited a falling aircraft. Biden's either complicit in the crash of the American economy or he was completely unable to see it coming or do a damn thing to stop it.
Two peas in a pod - obama is an a**h*le and joe buttin is a sh*t turd.
I looked in on them to get a glimpse.
I think Ryan did fine but all that is going to be remembered is uncle joe acting like a jerk.
Just got a breaking news email from CNN: Registered voters polled = 48% Ryan vs. 44% Biden
sampling error is +/- 5% (no internal breakdown)
I really think this did a LOT of damage to Øbama’s campaign. Biden laughed like a madman tonight.
This time, we all saw "the real Biden"
That’s our SARAH!
I don’t understand it either, and never will.
I did appreciate how Paul Ryan used his personal experience of the first time he saw his little girl at 7 weeks gestation.
I may be overly optimistic here, but I believe if women had the chance to see the tiny beating heart of their precious infant, they would not be able to go through with killing their baby.
“Did yall notice that Biden did not curse even once! He knows how not to.”
They have pills for Tourettes, you know.
I learned something about Ryan tonight...he’s a saint! I would have been crawling over the table to throttle Biden or at least pitching my water in his face.
I had an overwhelming desire to do harm to my TV, I handed the remote over to my husband.
