Twitter frowns on Joe Biden's laugh [media put off by the grinning/laughing jackass]
Politico ^ | 10/11/12 | PATRICK GAVIN

Posted on 10/11/2012 8:11:41 PM PDT by ETL

Weekly Standard’s Mark Hemingway: “Joe Biden’s laughing through talking about Iran sanctions?”
Continue Reading

Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein: “Biden’s strategy seems to be to laugh at Ryan constantly. Will it work to infantalize Ryan, or backfire like Gore sighing?”

NBC’s David Gregory: “Biden’s smile is out of control.”

BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith: “So did Biden practice laughing at Ryan???”

ABC’s Rick Klein: “Biden on verge of breaking down in laughter when Ryan talks.”

Former Eric Cantor staffer Brad Dayspring: “Joe Biden needs to realize this isn’t a Senate Foreign Relations Hearing. His laughter and condescending attitude is a disaster.”

Radio host Neal Boortz: “Looking like Biden’s gameplan is to laugh his way through this.”

Townhall.com’s Guy Benson: “Will Biden laugh his ass off at the terrible economy, too?”

MSNBC’s S.E. Cupp: “Biden needs to laugh a little less through the Libya, Middle East, nuclear Iran segment.”

Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza: “Ok. I have decided. I find the Biden smile slightly unsettling.”

(Also on POLITICO: 5 things to watch in VP debate)

PBS’ Jeff Greenfield: “Biden has always had a smile that at times is really, really inappropriate.”

Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard: “Can’t tell yet if Biden’s smirking, laughs, eye-rolling, head shaking, works for him or not against the oh-so-young looking eager Ryan.”

Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer: “Biden is at risk of having his laugh come across like Gore’s sighs. He should knock it off.”

The New York Times’ Ashley Parker: “Biden’s grin is Chesire Cat caliber.”

Republican strategist Ron Bonjean: “Biden laughing does not come off with the intended effect. It is actually hurting him. Looks very condescending.”

Movie critic Roger Ebert: “Joe! Stop smiling and laughing!”

Washington Times’ Emily Miller: “Biden laughing when he disagrees with Ryan is so annoying. Like a child in time out.”

Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin: “Biden’s laughing is losing the debate- obnoxious”

Obama.pres price / volume plummeted with Ryan’s close. It was a strong close and O’biden wasn’t able to interrupt.

Biden’s grinning and laughing at Ryan was supposed to throw Ryan off his stride and make him look ridiculous. It backfired. Biden is an idiot and Rabbitz was his sidekick.

I'm sure that Biden won with the MTV/Comedy Central crowd hands-down...for anyone looking for substance, Biden(with the help of the Mod.)turned it into a clown show.

In the end, it was beneath someone of Ryan's intelligence to even be there.

Biden was incredibly pompous.

Who do you trust, folks? Is he kidding with that?

His line is, "trust us". That's it.

So here's what you do.

I don't care if it's our troops safety, our dead foreign service people, the denial of requests for protection that got them killed, the declining incomes of the middle class, tens of millions of unemployed or people working for 1/3 the salary they were four years agao, or anything on our record, just laugh about it.  When Ryan starts to make points, just laugh out loud, interrupt, make noise, do whatever it takes to distract him.

Toward the end of the debate, make noises after very single word.  Don't let him develop a thought.  If he can, he'll kill us.

When it's your turn, blame Bush, military leaders, our inteligence services, foreign leaders, the Russians, the Republicans...

Laugh like you are right now.  Here like this...

F the Ameircan public.  They deserve what they get if they vote for us again.  They don't deserve any respect.  They don't deserve answers or a thoughtful discussion.

And besides, our propagandist friends in the media are going to say you won even if you shoot Ryan before the debate begins.  So who cares...

Look, folks, Joe Biden just had a wee bit to much to drink this evening prior to his VP debate with Paul Ryan!!! It cost him the debate....and probably will cause Obama to lose the POTUS race. At least, unlike Obama, who was stoned out of his mind with reefer or something stronger last week, Joe was just high on the sauce!!!

I thought the moderator was awful. She interrupted Ryan many times and would ask probing questions when he was finished. She didn’t do that with Biden so much. She also let the debate turn into a brawl. Biden looked like a bellicose, smug fat cat politician who has been in DC too long and needs to be sent home. He laughed, and smirked at times that were really inappropriate.

Obama a guest at [Biden-Ryan] moderator’s ‘91 wedding

By David Bauder
Associated Press

New York — The day before the vice presidential debate, the guest list for moderator Martha Raddatz’s 1991 wedding has become an issue, of sorts.

The list included Harvard Law School student and future president Barack Obama. ...”

Not just Liberal. Wife of a current Obama administration official -- Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Can you imagine the wife of some GWB regulatory agency chairman moderating the 2004 Cheney-Edwards debate? That shit would just not fly. I'm so effin' tired of double standards.

The best thing about Biden’s performance is that the very people most apt to be turned off by the sneering and rudeness are women voters who are used to being treated with such dismissiveness by men that they see right through the facade. Since more women voters side with the Dems (and many will find Ryan attractive anyway), I bet some of the women will switch sides or decide to stay home.

The replay of the debate is on CNN right now. I know CSPAN reruns it.

If you want to see it, I'd recommend it highly. Biden comes across as a bully, laughing at Ryan, trying his best to marginalize the Republican candidate. Despicable.
