Posted on 10/12/2012 11:05:56 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Joe Biden came out swinging at Paul Ryan, flailing wildly and landing a few punches on his own jaw as well as his opponent's. He showed the kind of spirit and populist anger that President Barack Obama was so conspicuously lacking and has cheered up many demoralised Democrats.
But Biden's performance here in Danville, Kentucky was both comical and self-defeating. Just as Al Gore sighed and rolled his eyes in 2000, so Biden smirked and guffawed. He gesticulated wildly and jabbed his finger. He interrupted Ryan and the moderator Martha Raddatz. Many women and swing voters will have hated it.
Perhaps the even bigger problem the Obama campaign will have in the coming days is that Biden, again just like Gore in 2000, repeatedly exaggerated and mischaracterised for effect. And worse than Gore - who was caught in a series of small lies in 2000 - Biden was demonstrably untruthful in some big respects.
Most seriously, Biden blamed the US intelligence community for the debacle and stated that no one had requested additional security.
When asked by Raddatz why the White House had blamed the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens on protests about a movie, he responded: 'Because that was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community.'
There is ample evidence that this was not the case. From tomorrow, expect a number of senior intelligence figures to come out and say that. The US intelligence community is not about to take the fall for what happened in Benghazi just so Obama can be re-elected.
Even more startling was Biden's insistence: 'Well, we werent told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again.'
That is directly contradicted by testimony from two State Department officials this week. Eric Nordstrom, expressed frustration

Biden as “The Joker.” “Who do you trust?” Only Dems trust “The Joker” lying about Libya, Obamacare taxes and the economy.
I was looking up information about Biden’s debate prep and came across the fact that Jennifer Granholm prepped Biden for his 2008 campaign and also spoke to Van Hollen about this years debate. Do your remember Granholm’s performance at the Democrat convention?
Who could forget it! (Granholms appearance) LOL

Bidens Bad Body Language: An Al Gore Reprise
Will the CIA head fall on his sword? If he accepts the blame then he’ll have to resign in disgrace. Oh, wait....they’re democrats. Never mind.
As predicted, Joe ‘cackle-smirk’ Biden lies as a debate tactic and the media from on their knees worship his lying as their truth.
I think some enterprising journolist should reprise the Joe Biden, Teddy Kennedy “Waitress Sandwiches”, they oh so loved to try to get going.
Teddy, the swimmer, and Joe, plugs facelift together harassing women everywhere....
Biden's lucky the MSM is so corrupt... No chance the boys at the New York Times will catch either - and if they do - it'll be reported on some inside page - left side toward the bottom. They're consistent in their bias... little loser suck-ups...
“fib”, “demonstrably untruthful “.....
Biden is a damn liar... he LIED!!!!!
After Valerie Plame I came to the conclusion that the CIA was inhabited with a bunch of rats.
I believe that was Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd.
My memory is that it was Chris Dodd and Ted Kennedy.

I remember Gore standing next to Bush and staring him down. It was weird and unprofessional but, when is the left not weird and unprofessional. They really are a sick bunch.
Maybe so, I’ll give the recollection to you. But it would not surprise me one bit, especially since the very recent picture of Joe Slob with the aging biker chick on his lap in some campaign stop restaurant...he lookee like he enjoy this very very much.
PS.....the JOURNOLIST inclusion was intentional!
Gingrich: Bidens Benghazi response will haunt Obama
It takes Newt Gingrich a little while to get his edge in this clip from his appearance on CBS News this morning with former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, but when Granholm offers Gingrich an opening, he becomes the quintessential Newt. Gingrich provides analysis of the debate, noting that Ryan had his first experience on a truly national stage last night against a deeply experienced politician, and offers a fairly balanced perspective on how each succeeded in their strategies. However, he tells CBS that Bidens deception on Benghazi will haunt Barack Obama in the final three weeks:
