Ryan showed calm, meassured leadership.

AFAIC BOTH BO and Biden were on a substance that altered their performance. Drugs most likely.

I am serious.

Even though the question is irrelevant, the Dems think that because Obama was "too polite", Biden makes up for it by being an A-hole.

= FAIL

Biden spoke to the Democratic base, Ryan spoke to the country as a whole.

Good job Rep. Ryah!

I didn’t realize Biden was running against Obama.

Honest to goodness, who frames the polls for the WSJ?

This has absolutely no bearing on last night’s debate whatsoever. How did Biden score against Ryan? That’s the issue.

The irrelevance of this question, causes one to consider the relevance of the WSJ on this issue. Per this question, there is no relevance for the WSJ. It took itself out of the game on this one. What a shame.

Biden wasn’t out to list accomplishments, he was out to win votes; I think he did so. Ryan showed up for an adult discussion, while Biden appealed to an electorate that gets it news from Comedy Central.

I voted “about the same” in the poll but here in FR I’ll say what really happened:

Obama showed up unprepared, Romney showed up fairly well prepared... and it made a big difference.

Biden showed up ready to attack, Ryan showed up unable to counterattack... and it made all the difference (in perception).

The fact is, both Romney and Ryan took knives to a gun fight. The only difference in the two debates is that faggot Obama doesn’t know how to shoot a gun, Biden does.

If Romney/Ryan aren’t prepared to attack the SIZE of government (Romney did a little bit in his debate, Ryan not one iota in his) then they are showing up to gun fights armed with knives.

Romney is cruising for a fall. It won’t be that hard to put a gun in Obama’s hand and show him how to point it, even if he is a faggot.

If Romney isn’t prepared to attack the SIZE of government, then he is disarming himself in advance and is going to lose the next debate.

They used to say that Hillary Clinton reminded every divorced man of his first wife.

Last night, Joe Biden reminded every divorced woman of her first husband.

But even a loud and abusive first husband is better than ObamaZombie...

spot on. Biden knew he had to “get aggressive”. This is what he came up with.

In a truly laughable moment, watched a bit of CNN last night, and when I tuned in, they were talking about how Biden did such a good job and how impressive he was, etc. Then they showed their poll and Biden had lost 44 to 48. They still kept talking about how good he did. 44 was a great victory, in their minds.

It was all very comical.

Ryan was cool, calculated and professional. I do think he was worried that Biden might jump on him or bite his ear.

I have to be honest. I could not judge the answers to any of the questions because I couldn’t bear watching Biden’s shitty grins and chuckles long enough to get the substance of the debates.

I had to turn it off and come back to it, and it just got worse. To me it was unwatchable, a farce.

Quite frankly, I think Sarah did a much better job against “there you go again Joe” than did Ryan. Certainly Ryan was generally playing catch up as Joe did give the first response on most questions and Ryan was forced to address not only questionable statements made by Biden but try to work in a rebuttal to them while stating his own position.

If Biden was running for National Jerk, he won in a landslide. No wonder the Democrats keep him hidden away like a crazy uncle.

Obama has shown petty vindictiveness over the years from his message, “I won, get used to it” to his reaction to where he was born, in effect he has to react to the slightest poke, prod and accusation, something POTUS should never have to de.

Ryan established the image that he was more mature, saw Bidens childish strategy and failed to be baited like a cat seeing a laser pointer.

I voted the same, but for different reasons.

Biden acted like a pompous ass, while Obummer acted like the empty suit that he is.

If Romney isn’t prepared to attack the SIZE of government,

Don't believe the discourse should get personal. If Michelle is not complaining about the size of Obama's government, neither should Romney............

Biden- Too ‘cute’ to be professional.

Obama- Too ‘absent’ to be either professional or unprofessional.

OK, so they can’t run on their record. Biden apparently thought he could win by acting the fool l and shouting over Ryan.

CBS was praising Biden and tore apart every little thing that Ryan said. Definitely one sided.

Think of it this way. Which man last night would you be comfortable with stepping in as President if something happened to the President?

I can't believe that the “undecideds” we are after wouldn't see Ryan as the clear winner.
That segment of voter keeps telling us they don't like all fighting and acrimony.

I think Ryan won big.

I would say their performance was about the same - terrible, but in different ways. Biden looked like a loud obnoxious drunk and Obama looked like he took a 30 day supply of xanax.
