and that is exactly true Wind...wifey and I saw out back with the horses and listened on speaker and it sounded bad for Ryan
I was furious...hollering at the speakers
the horses were like “what’s up with the old dude who feeds us the good stuff...hope he doesn’t keel over and we have to just eat grass”
Seen on Twitter (I admit, I've been double dipping tonight: FR and TwittR):
"THAT took six days of intense and sequestered preparation?"
I made a point of listening only. Originally, I thought Biden had the advantage but his laughing/mocking/interruptions became insufferable. It was as if he thought he’d win by speaking faster and louder than Ryan.
Eventually, Ryan’s smooth, calm sound took the lead. By the end, especially after the “Catholic/abortion” question, Biden sounded like a dithering fool, like his boss, with ahh’s and ummm’s several times per sentence. Also, Biden’s close was rather pathetic, while Ryan’s was strong.
So this radio listener ends up giving the edge to Ryan.
I could have sworn Biden flipped Ryan off near the end of the debate. I wish I could exactly what the question was. It was way before the abortion question.
There...fixed that for ya.
In fact, we may have to make some adjustments to the old phrase “Crazy aunt at the family picnic”
Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag & Smile, Smile, Smile....
It was,not good.Love reading reply’s like the rest of us.
Biden reminded me of an unruly child when their parent is speaking with his interrupting and creating a fuss or a disruptive student while the teacher is trying to teach. No wonder he’s a lib - he’s unteachable.
Plugs wasn't smiling with Ryan pointed out his hometown UE went from 8.5 to 10%.
agreed...it’s basically impossible
and I thought our alexa traffic stats were down markedly from the old days
hence why are we so slow
this thread is only a 1200 posters run
back in the day...yes kids..i’m old...we had huge running threads of 1000s and more traffic in general
You’re talking to somebody who carries spiders and stink bugs outside.
I hate killing *bugs*, fer cryin’ out loud.
I hope the dem-voting Catholics have their consciences set on fire tonight.
It was good vs evil/Devil vs God/wheat vs tares, plain as day.
Choose now whom you will serve.
What do we want?
A CURE FOR TOURETTE'S!
When do we want it?
*@%^$% mother (*&@^^!!
My favorite Bidenism of the night: "These are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. Or cripples. Or history."
The above quote is from my recollection and may or may not match the transcript as I was laughing too loud.
Seen on another website:
"The Department of Media, another Obama cabinet position"
It’s positively surrealistic to see Buttin being hit by ‘friendly fire’ from the MSM.
Well okay then, once I’ve taken my gloves off and smacked Biden about the face with them, I’ll take him by the scruff of the neck to your arse. Which cheek would you prefer kissed? Right or left?
EWErickson: RT @StevenErtelt: RT @PeterHambyCNN: CNN/ORC POLL Who Was More Likeable? Ryan 53% Biden 43%
Well, it pays to be attractive and polite... who’d have guessed?
Biden was giving libs the red meat they didn’t get at the first debate, Hope it cost him moderates.
It seems the Obama campaign is more interested in firing up it’s base than reaching out, not a good sign at this late date.
“I think that as the days go by, Bidens stupid mannerisms are going to be all that is remembered from this debate...and that will only help us.”
“THAT took six days of intense and sequestered preparation?”
Yes, for all the dental work.
In my case, I’m sticking with uncle as I always have.
My own personal psycho was “lovable”, loud, grinning, intelligent, funny, verbose and over-talked everybody to get his “punchlines” in.
He was also a serial pedophile.
“Creepy uncle” is hard-wired into my psyche.
