Ryan won by a large margin in the AP debate poll.
Ryan also one the CNN poll.

I listened on the radio too, and it certainly seemed that Biden lost the debate. Ryan won hands Down.

"I listened on the radio-Biden won."

You missed a lot only listening to it. You didn't get to see his smirking, grinning incessantly, and you might have not heard all of his muttering while Ryan was speaking. According to a Drudge link, Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times. Sounds more like a Charlie Sheen "winning."

I listened on my way home from Maine to Ct. Biden was an arrogant, condescending prick constantly interrupting Ryan along with the moderator. So, if the race is for arrogant, condescending prick I guess Joe won.

Were is this?

Seems to me that if it was a tie, Biden must be seen as the winner.

If at the end of a debate, the side advocating a change in the status quo wins if the opposition doesn’t give enough proof to convince the judges.

If it is a tie, then we don’t make a change and keep Obama in office.

My feeling is that Ryan was clearly superior.

Ryan seemed uneasy with the format, but his last word was good.

Biden was passionate, but every five seconds, he was sneering, laughing, smirking. Very ugly.

Radaatz was the most biased debate moderator I have ever seen in terms of time. Biden must have had 78% of the time when all was said and done.

Biden caught lying twice. Once on voting for Iraq war, then on Libya security requests.

Did you notice how many times Biden said “I was there”....talking about when obama did this and that?

I expected him to say “I was takin’ a crap in the bathroom off the Oval Office and I heard the president. He said ‘Close the damned door, Joe! And how ‘bout a courtesy flush! I’m tryin’ to be articulate but the smell is screwin’ up my thinkin’.”

Krauthammer gave it on FOX post-debate. It was a draw in terms of what was said, mainly because Biden had so much more time to spout his garbage, but in my opinion Biden lost because most people SAW the debate. They saw the condescending smirk. It was ugly, and from early reports, Ryan appealed to women much more. Polls seem mixed, but that’s okay. The momentum is in our direction and while the media debate how many factors Biden should ratchet his smile down by, we’ll continue to increase our share of votes.

Dang, meant to say that side advocating a change (GOP in this case) in the status quo LOSES if they don’t provide enough arguments to convince the judges. A draw goes to the side supporting the present system.

Wished I'd only listened. Watching Biden's incessant smirking, grinning, mugging and condescending glares just upset the whole thing for me.

Had my husband not been sitting right beside me, I'd have switched channels to something less disgusting.

The Kid did okay but needs to be more affirmative. Biden also did well on information. Acted like a Chicago thug.

Moderator? Who knows?

More importantly, the following question/statement has to be asked by ROMNEY next week:

“MR. PRESIDENT. WITH THESE LOOMING SEQUESTRATION BUDGET CUTS THAT WILL EMASCULATE OUR ALREADY WEAKENED MILITARY, HOW CAN YOU PROTECT US FROM IRAN IF YOU COULDN’T, WOULDN’T AND DIDN’T PROTECT OUR U.S. AMBASSADOR IN LIBYA?”

End of story. End of Obama on foreign affairs/policy.

Comments?

Yes, and I noticed he managed to get to bin Laden's death pretty quick, and even brought up the death of his first wife and daughter in the car crash. I guess we should be grateful that he didn't call the truck driver a drunk like he usually does.

My impression listening to the debate on the radio also was that Biden was better than he appeared watching it on television.

I noticed that,as usual, he didn't mention the FACT that it was she who ran the stop sign!! Or, for that matter that the truck driver was NOT drunk!!He ruined that man's life with a LIE!!

“I listened on the radio-Biden won.”

I could not stand watching Biden. Biden would tell obvious lies. Then he would make clown faces like an obnoxious child in school. It was sickening.

Biden did not make one honest, intelligent point. He was rude. He interrupted Congressman Ryan. He made inappropriate remarks and rude expressions.

Biden did not win anything. Except maybe annoying clown.

Done - 65% Ryan, 35% Biden.

Biden’s tactics so disgusted my wife that she walked over to the iPad and started listening to a podcast of “Car Talk.”

I would like to thank the moderator for allowing Biden the freedom and opportunity to demonstrate how much of a rude a**hole he could be. I’m imagining that she thought she was giving backup to the Democrat, though.

So here’s the playoffs so far - game one, Obama is sullen, distant, and looks like a kid in the principal’s office. Game two, Biden is that obnoxious jerk that you’re actually pleased to see get knocked down a few notches.

Game three soon.

Yeah, there were a few times where Biden and the moderator were double teaming Ryan. Ryan was asked a question and then as he starts answering it, the moderator interrupts him and Biden was interrupting every 5 seconds it seems with no care in the world by the moderator. She should have been excused and recused herself from the debate with the knowledge her ex husband was friends with Obama in the Harvard Law Review and that Obama attended her wedding and vice versa with her attending his wedding.
