The vice presidential debate was Biden’s smile vs Ryan’s eyes. The eyes may have it – just

The world would’ve forgiven Paul Ryan if he had thrown his glass of water over Joe Biden last night. Throughout the vice presidential debate, Biden was aggressive to the point of rude. His strategy was obviously to make up for Obama’s weakness the previous week by being forceful and unrelenting. While this made for an entertaining opening, the performance quickly became repetitive and annoying. Picking a winner depends entirely on personal taste. Some viewers will decide that Biden was tough and Ryan was weak. Others will conclude that Ryan was reasonable and Biden was out of control. Personally, I thought the Vice President’s behaviour resembled the evening life cycle of an amiable drunk. He started out happy and smiling, turned argumentative in the middle, and closed with a rambling statement that suggested it was time for a power nap on a park bench. Ten minutes longer and he might have got his second wind, slung an arm around Ryan’s neck and started a chorus of, “Show Me The Way To Go Home…”

From the American Thinker:

***********

His smile was frightening. For most of the night Joe Biden looked like the Joker — Nicholson not Ledger.

After 3 ½ years of Biden’s playing the fool, it is hard to remember he was once considered a serious man, a serious politician. But...Barack wasn’t looking for a serious politician — he wanted a court jester — and that’s what he got.

Now, after playing the fool for so long he has become the fool. Yet, in the debate he wanted to again be a serious man — or at least play one on TV. He clearly showed why Clint Eastwood called him the “intellect” of the Democrat Party.

We females experience that condescending attitude by left leaning males who think they have power over us all the time. THINK AGAIN, CHUCKLES! You just lost the intelligent female vote. On November 6th, WE GET THE LAST LAUGH!

Last night I kept hearing Pink Floyd’s ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ as the debate went on.

We don’t need no condescension
We dont need no thought control
No daft VP in the Halls of Congress
Hey! Joe! Leave that kid alone!
All in all you’re just another pr*ck in the Hall.

Cashing in on the presence of two Catholics (a historical first), moderator Martha Raddatz asked how their faith affected their views on abortion. Ryan said that he found it impossible to separate faith and politics. Biden said that his Catholicism defined him, but he wouldn’t force his prolife views on anyone else – Joe prefers to focus on "social justice." And there we have the schizophrenia of the American Catholic Church in a nutshell: faith and morals vs hugs and tamborines.

And there is the issue. FRoman Catholics clearly belong to the former, but sadly they seem to be in the minority in the US.

Played to the tune of the Eagles song Lying Eyes


O'Biden's Lies


DC lies just seem to find out early,
How to open doors with a smile.
Rich old scam,
And they wont have to worry.
They dress up all nice and go out with a smile.

Late last night the debate get's all unruly
I guess every forum of debate has it's price.
And it breaks Crissy's heart to think his love is only.
Given to a scam with hands as cold as ice.


You can't hide O'Biden's Lies,
And your smile is a thin disguise.

I thought by now you realize,
There ain't no way to hide O'Biden's lies.

I hope Rush will start using it and wipe the smirk off of Biden’s face.

“When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.” Proverbs 29:9

New American Standard Bible (©1995)

Some translations use the word “debates” instead of “has a controversy”.

Rather appropriate for the Ryan - Biden controversy.

The picture needs an arrow pointing to Ryan saying “THE ADULT IN THE ROOM.”

There’s a reason “Irish Eyes” is a cliché. Biden has evil little slits. Ryan was born with the real thing.

So is the entire FR, in a minority.

This is a good example of why it is not the numbers but the leadership that matters. We started with 12 Apostles and did OK.

perhaps, and it’s our (the conservative Catholics) job to go out and knock sense into our own. Well, it’s the job of people in the denominations as well in their own. As Christians as a whole we are fighting a major battle against secularisation and losing in many skirmishes
