Skip to comments.Twitter frowns on Joe Biden's laugh [media put off by the grinning/laughing jackass]
Posted on 10/11/2012 8:11:41 PM PDT by ETL
Weekly Standards Mark Hemingway: Joe Bidens laughing through talking about Iran sanctions?
Washington Examiners Philip Klein: Bidens strategy seems to be to laugh at Ryan constantly. Will it work to infantalize Ryan, or backfire like Gore sighing?
NBCs David Gregory: Bidens smile is out of control.
BuzzFeeds Ben Smith: So did Biden practice laughing at Ryan???
ABCs 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 isnt a Senate Foreign Relations Hearing. His laughter and condescending attitude is a disaster.
Radio host Neal Boortz: Looking like Bidens gameplan is to laugh his way through this.
Townhall.coms Guy Benson: Will Biden laugh his ass off at the terrible economy, too?
MSNBCs S.E. Cupp: Biden needs to laugh a little less through the Libya, Middle East, nuclear Iran segment.
Washington Posts 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 Examiners Paul Bedard: Cant tell yet if Bidens 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 Gores sighs. He should knock it off.
The New York Times Ashley Parker: Bidens 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 Posts Jennifer Rubin: Bidens 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.
Joe Biden looked like a deranged Jack-O-Lantern with a burned out pilot light.
Sorry, didn’t realize this was already posted. FR loading at a snail’s pace due to heavy traffic.
I thought Joe Biden won...the best imitation of the ShamWow guy.
Biden and Rabbitz wasted everyone’s time this evening by turning a debate, where people wanted to learn about issues, into a joke. Thanks for nothin’, Biteme.
I was appalled at Biden’s rudeness. I do not think he impressed anyone.
Joe Biden looked like a deranged Jack-O-Lantern with a burned out pilot light.
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.
Thanks. Meant to ping you to this thread. FR operating extremely slowly.
In the end, it was beneath someone of Ryan's intelligence to even be there.
Who do you trust, folks? Is he kidding with that?
His line is, "trust us". That's it.
Slimey Joe Isuzu Biden showed the voters jus what he is.
Biff versus George McFly.
Slimy Joe Isuzu Biden showed the voters jus what he is.
Naw. More like Biff vs. Marty McFly.
Funny, that almost the exact comment I said about Biden to my wife.
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!!!
>Biff versus George McFly.
Naw. More like Biff vs. Marty McFly.<
Seen on Twitter:
Captain Smirk vs Mr Spock
Biden reminded me of a jock/bully (who didn’t have to worry about grades because he could play a sport) trying to gear himself up to try and beat the snot out of some kid a lot smaller than him only this little kid had a black belt.
Who’s laughing now?
(Those RNC ad guys sure are fast!)
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.
By David Bauder
New York The day before the vice presidential debate, the guest list for moderator Martha Raddatzs 1991 wedding has become an issue, of sorts.
The list included Harvard Law School student and future president Barack Obama. ...
I was put off by Biden’s inappropriate laughter but my 11=year-old son nailed it. “Do you think he’s drunk but kind of hiding it?”
I feel certain Biden had the questions in advance..put that moderator under oath and ask her if he did???
Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag & Smile, Smile, Smile......
This is my wife, Jill...Or actually I'm her husband...
just checked the moderator out...she will be 60 years old come Valentines Day in 2013 and is on husband #3...has a son and a daughter by #1 and #2 nothing with #3 maybe too old??...she is a LIBERAL
The first “question” was intended to give the White House an “out” on Libya. She asked if it was an “intelligence failure”.
Two words kept occurring to me watching Joe the Schmoe Show....RUDE JERK!
I can’t believe his behavior tonight will do anything but hurt 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.
2007: Bidens description of Obama draws scrutiny:
Oh, yeah? Well, Joe has three words for you:
J - O - B - S !
Time for some creative FReepers to make a Biden-Joker photoshop.
That would sell tons of T shirts in time for Halloween.
“Why so unserious?”
Joe Biden: "J-O-B-S", a 3-letter word
Difference between Conservatives and Libs? We like getting jobs in the private sector. Libs like getting jobs in the Oral Office.
Biden and Rabbitz wasted everyones time this evening by turning a debate, where people wanted to learn about issues, into a joke. Thanks for nothin, Biteme.
This says it all for me.
Well, didn't Obamugabe tell "Joe to just be Joe"?
I didn’t see the debate tonight. I was working.
This video is absolutley SHOCKING to me. I know it a cut up edit, but OMG. Are the honest state of the nation’s affairs FUNNY to Biden???
I feel sick...
Maybe you have something there, I thought of that too, that Biden had the questions in advance, The laughter is a form of over confidence, he was too smooth, and rude beyond belief.
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.
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.
Well, yes, but that’s always been Biden’s M.O. I can’t think of anyone he appeals to, other than men just like him — in the eloquent words of AntiHillary on another thread: pricks.
