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

No, they sense that MSNBC has overtaken them and unless they get the libs who jumped to Fox back, they will go into the dustbin of history as the Betamax of cable TV.

The other hard left wing Hussein Heads egged on Biden, “Go get ‘im, Joe” was common.

I said this on another thread: overheard one of Holder's people this morning say: "Did you see our Vice President put that little boy in his place last night?"

Everyone had Ryan winning. Only question left is, “Who did Snuffalupagus pick?”

I cannot help wondering if Biden could have scored better if he hadn’t been constantly smirking, chuckling, and interrupting. He came off for the most part as a pompous ass.

“He was overplaying it to make up for Obama.”

The passive/aggressive team. Why can’t they be normal?

The poll CNN is talking about is NOT an online poll, it’s a poll of registered voters who watched the debate.

Obama was told not to fight. Be cool. Don’t be a mad black man. Good cop.

Joe was told to be attack dog fighting. Bad cop.

Both overplayed it. Obama looked disconnected and uninterested. Joe seemed over the top crazy.

He might as well get used to it. AS VP he will get worse than twitter hate tweets.

He turned off women voters.

My wife who tends to be very apolitical and doesn't listen to this stuff much at all listened to the first half of the debate on the radio and watched the second half. She was totally appalled at Joe Biden and his demeanor, rudeness, and tone. She told me he needed a good whipping and put in timeout until he could behave himself.

My take was somewhat similar but also I think it is a scary thing to have someone this unhinged only a heartbeat away from his finger on the nuclear button!!!

Yep and all he accomplished was he came across as an arrogant obnoxious bully. That’s the thing I love about Democrats: They destroy themselves.

“Obama can now toughen up his game a bit and still not appear obnoxious.”

Yeah, I’m trying to remember when I’ve seen Hussein talk and act tough without his teleprompters and all I can come up with is when he addresses a room filled with nothing but racist supporters.

Should be interesting next time.

It was obvious that the entire game plan last night was to make noises, laugh, and interrupt so that Ryan could not get a sentence out. Both Biden and the Mod would make a noise or simply stop Ryan every single time he put two sentences together. I turned it off and took the dog for a walk as it was becoming dangerously close to the time where I put my foot through the TV. I couldn’t even hear him because of the laughing, muttering, sputtering old fool sitting next to him. I thought Ryan handled it very gracefully because he was obviously expecting it, but it pissed me off to the point I couldn’t watch. The only thing Biden did not do was cover his ears and scream, “LA LA LA LA LA LA LAAAAAA!!!!!”

So the undecided were not changing their decisions, huh?


I guess that should be “undecided were not changing their INdecision”, right?

Oh yeah, the Palin mention was a "moment among Liberals," where he said her name, followed it with an eyeroll and that leering, creepy grin he has. The clear implication was, "Ryan, you sound just as dumb as that stupid bimbo I had to debate last time." It did not come across well. I think the remark was something about the death panel debate. "Oh yeah, I heard that same death panel argument when I had to debate (smirk) Sarah Palin (eyeroll) (cheesy leer)." It was really that obnoxious.

It seemed to me watching the debate that Biden’s had a face lift. No doubt about that.. He took a long hiatus, I think..?

All I know is if Romney allows the debate moderator and Obama to dictate the flow of the debate like Paul Ryan did, he is going to get his clocked cleaned and Obama is going to cruise to re-election.

I think conservatives need to realize that consultants likely coached Paul Ryan to be Mr. Nice guy, and as a result he allowed Biden to look like a winner, even while Biden acted like a baffoon. It was frustrating to watch how much Ryan left on the table. My advice is you either play to win or don’t play at all. The strategy of playing not to lose wasted everyone’s time.

Joe Biden basically said that the Catholic Church has nothing to worry about when it comes to the HHS mandate. Ryan should have asked Biden straight up, “so Mr. Vice-President, does this mean that the Catholic Church can offer the exact same policies they have been offering in recent years, they don’t have to change a thing? Please tell us the answer.”

When opportunity knocks you better answer.

That is awesome on so many levels.
A) it was done FAST
B) it was done WELL
c) it plays on the aspect that is strongest from the debate [Biden’s inappropriate laughter.]

It was perfect.

“I’m stunned some members of Frank Luntz’ focus group thought Martha Raddatz did “an excellent job”. Not the brightest focus group I’ve seen from Luntz... “

I think there were a lot of liberals in that group. And I think that there “Undecided” status is a cover. In the end they will swing Obama because that is who they have been all along.

I thought WOW the moderator is doing well but half way through she might as well told Biden to take a nap and she;ll take over.

Then there was Biden which the GOP are not talking about.
The issue was about Americans dying and this buffon of a VP sat there laughing.
Ryan should have said” Excuse me but we’re discussing an important issue here and you sitting there laughing just sums up what this admin has been like for the last 4 years”

Utterly appalling, rude and down right arrogant Biden was last night.
All he did was let his radical fringe element of the party think they had a chance.

she did alright up till the half way point and then she went right into campaign mode for her pals.

She got scolded off Biden, she let him rabbit on, be rude, show no class etc and never went after Biden like she went after Ryan.

Like I said , half way through and she did well but then seemed to think Biden was losing and so she backed Biden up.

my thoughts too.

SHe was alright until half way through and then might as well put her obama button on.

That crowd Luntz had was not undecided at all.

There were some radical left wing kooks on that.

If they are OH then OH might as well join MA and form their own country because last night that crowd was so out of touch and clueless

my wife and I watched it and my wife susually stays silent but this time she shouted at the TV about the moderator “ will you stop interrupting him, he;s making a decent point and I want to hear it”
Then with Biden doing it too, wow laughing when talking about American dying, when America is weak, when people are losing jobs”

My wife spoke to two of her friends who saw this and both were disgusted how Biden ated.

Biden was acting like an old argumentative drunk in a bar that people just try to avoid until someone really gets pissed and knocks him out with a pool cue, at which time everyone claps, pays his bar tab, and names a drink after him.

It was a testment to Ryan’s character that he was able to remain calm during Biden’s chidlish antics. I don’t think I could have done it. I’ve never seen such a disrespectful display by a candidate, let alone a sitting VP.

I tried to comment last night and FR was all jacked up.

Biden did what his handlers did, which is just what they told Kerry and Gore to do: come out, own it, show that you’ve got fire in the belly—and what you saw was the resulting disaster. These morons can’t order a drink without looking like the morons that they are.

I gotta say, I thought Ryan started off very poorly but after a while I just started feeling sorry for him b/c Biden and the moderator weren’t letting him get a word in.

If Biden just realized that Ryan was struggling and let him flail he probably would have won without question. At one point his behavior was so bad I just couldn’t stand to watch it any longer and that was what stuck with me. It was a waste of time and it was Biden and them moderator’s fault.

So we got Big Bird with the 1st one, Oscar the grouch showed up for the 2nd one, I say we bring in Bert and Ernie and have a debate on gay marriage for the next one.

Not the brightest focus group I've seen from Luntz...

I'm convinced Luntz' "undecided" voter groups have been infiltrated by the opposition. They have cracked the interview selection process for the past several events. Not a reliable indicator.

Heck, after the Romney/Obama debate, we scanned the Luntz focus group and correctly predicted the liberal plants by their habitus and attire.
