Biden started debating the moderator.

The laughing, smirking, 82 interruptions.

He was overplaying it to make up for Obama.

The libs are actually accusing CNN of being the new FOX. Amazing! I think Biden’s smirk turned people off in a baaaad way.

That’s good enough for me. A close debate, especially a VP one, is highly unlikely to move any poll numbers or take any of the gathering steam out of Romney’s march toward 270.

Sure, it would have been nice to see Joe have a total Howard Beale moment, but he didn’t gain any ground for Team Obama, and that’ll work.

They sense a blowout of epic proportions and are worried about their credibility.

Poor ABC & NBC still don't have a clue.

This was not the online poll - this was the actual survey taken of debate viewers.

It’s breaking news on CNN!

Breaking News: CNN/ORC poll: 48% of registered voters watching debate say Ryan won. 44% say Biden won. Sampling error is +/- 5%.

overplayed, obnoxious,clown. Rude, crass, arrogant, condescending w/o basis. I think every thinking person should have seen through that. He didn’t wan’t a debate, rather a WWF match.

This debate will not move anyone toward or away from Obama or Romney. The voters have already decided.

Shoddy home economic trends and a crappy foreign policy, time for a grownup to give it a go.

Romney Ryan by a landslide.

And Ryan had to debate two people at once. Both Biden, and the moderator. Ryan was being team tagged.

NBC poll apparently had him up even more. AP poll has Ryan winning.

Biden laid an egg tonight

Not sure about neutral but definitely adding in a lot more “random acts of journalism” as of late...that interview of Stephanie Cutter calling Obama out over Libya and the interview with the mother of the fallen soldier were very hard hitting and unusually skeptical toward the Obama administration. I don’t suspect it will last...might be just to point to as “proof” they aren’t biased when they go full on activist later.

Yes, the "moderator" was indeed horrible. But what did you think about Biden?

Not that I would have expected Biden to win....Paul Ryan is just so damn smart, but Biden’s childish reactions were a real turn-off!

The smirks and laughs were strictly psy-ops for the tv audience; Biden tried to make it appear that he & Raddatz were sharing some kind of insider understanding of Ryan’s inferiority, as if she was looking back at him and smirking/laughing too.

AceofSpadesHQ headline:

Very nice

Don't think the MSM will be able to clean that mess up, expect to see a Romney/Ryan bump up in the national polls in a few days.

Remember the first Bush / Gore debate in 2000? The flash polls showed a strong majority though Gore won the debate, yet his poll numbers tanked in the days that followed because he was so nasty with all of the very loud sighing noises Gore was making every time Bush was speaking.

Biden came across as a real misogynist—he was awful to the woman moderator, and she was trying to help him. He read her the riot act several times and he will make women’s skin crawl. YUK—he is a real Pr___k.

Does anyone suppose this is actually the Romney margin over Obama if you take away the Wilder Effect? When they don’t have to worry about being accused of racism, maybe the race really is Romney +4.

Biden made a mockery out of the position of Vice President tonight. The sad thing is this performance was a conscious decision to be rude and obnoxious. The Obama administration thinks that this is the type of behavior that our society now tolerates. They think that the American public is made up mostly of idiots at about the 4th grade level, in other words registered democrats.

It was worse than that.

That they changed the numbers (added more viewers) to make it closer.

No you didn’t. This is not one of those vote as many times as you like online polls. This was an actual poll conducted of those who watched the debate. MOE is 4%.

Democrats seem to be convinced that you win a debate by being rude and disruptive. Al Gore did as much against Bush. I guess if you don't have any substance to your ideology, you really have very few other options.

CNN must have gotten a phone call from the White House. Their title for the article now says it was a tie!

“CNN Poll: Debate watchers split on who won VP debate”

But the link still has the Ryan win embedded!

They had real-time responses of their focus group and Ryan got most positive responses. They couldn’t spin what they’d already shown...

LOL. A 48-44 on overall win, 53-43 on likeability, 50-41 on clarity is definitely a win for Ryan. Not a blowout, but still a win.

Yeah but just taking this CNN poll as face value for what it is with the +/- then it does mean its a tie......I didn’t see anything tonight that would move people one way or the other

Yes he did!!!! I don’t go in for that woman’s lib crap, (I am a woman) but even I was offended. There was one point when he was wagging his finger at her and kept saying her name like it was a dirty word! It was downright creepy

__________________________________________________________

I think it was deliberate but only to dodge BiteMe’s record. He could not have a formal serious discussion about his record. BiteMe has always projected his domineering persona in his political career to control the conversation. I’m glad that Ryan didn’t go there. The contrast in tonight’s debate was very stark.

BiteMe proved that while you can control and dominate a conversation by laughing, smiling, smirking and interrupting.....at the end of the evening you are still an obnoxious asshole.
