  • Chevy Volts For War-Torn Vienna, Nothing For Benghazi

    Priorities: While our consulate in Benghazi was guarded by unarmed Libyan contractors making $4 an hour, our embassy in Vienna received an expensive charging station for its new electric cars to help fight climate change. Even MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell says Vice President Joe Biden lied during Thursday's debate when he said twice that no one in the Obama administration knew that requests for extra security had been made by our Libyan ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and other members of our consulate in Benghazi. The State Department knew "in real time," as Mitchell put it in her post-debate analysis, that requests had...
  • Though Biden Didn't Win, He Brilliantly Reprised Bonecrusher Smith - Bashing Biden with Boxing

    The presidential debates have elicited abundant boxing metaphors, which as a former boxer and coach can always be entertaining. Boxing only works so well as a debate analogy because unlike verbal sparring, there are no predetermined spans of offense and defense. In debates, both speakers are supposed to get turns. At least, before Joe Biden obliterated the Marquis of Queensberry by incessantly interrupting his challenger Paul Ryan. Biden boxed brilliantly even if it wasn’t pretty and drew little blood. Before last night’s bout, reporters asked Biden if he would “rope-a-dope?” Biden boasted, “You ever see me rope-a-dope?” If you recall,...

    The debate between VP nominees Joe Biden and Paul Ryan reminded me of the debates I've had over the years with left-wingers on my radio show and privately. Left-wingers think nothing of lying and playing dirty because they believe in power and in the principle that anything goes to keep their power. Regarding the Biden-Ryan debate I read a post-debate tweet from a left-wing talk show host who claimed that Biden "creamed" Ryan. From a left prospective he is right. Biden did everything he could to dominate the debate and to stop Ryan from talking including constant rude interruptions and...

    During Thursday’s debate, Vice-President Joe Biden engaged – in his words – in a fit of malarkey on the tax issue. Below are the details of what he claimed and what the real truth is: Biden: “97 percent of the small businesses in America pay less - make less than $250,000. Let me tell you who some of those other small businesses are: hedge funds that make $600 million, $800 million a year. That's – that's what they count as small businesses, because they're pass-through.” The Obama-Biden plan to raise the top two marginal income tax rates (from 33 and...

    Vice President Joseph Biden speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, and neither man was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a top White House official told The Cable. Biden has come under fire for saying at Thursday night's debate, "We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there." The Cable asked Deputy National Security Advisor for Communications Ben Rhodes whether Biden was speaking for the entire Obama administration, including the State Department,...

    So now we know what Team Obama's comeback plan was following last week's defeat in the Presidential debate. Unleash Joe Biden to interrupt, filibuster, snarl, smirk and otherwise show contempt for Paul Ryan. The carnival act contributed to the least illuminating presidential or vice presidential debate of our lifetimes. From the opening bell, Mr. Biden seemed to take to heart the interpretation that President Obama offered this week of his debate performance—that he had been "too polite." That was not a problem for the Veep, whose marching orders were clearly to steamroll the overmatched moderator Martha Raddatz and dismiss everything...

    DANVILLE, Kentucky -- There are two ways to judge Thursday's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, and no one yet knows which one voters will choose. The first is on the substance of what was discussed. That debate was about a tie, with Biden winning on issues like Medicare and Afghanistan, and Ryan winning on taxes and Libya. Judged on the substance, it seems unlikely that debate will change much of anything in the broader presidential race. The second way to judge the debate is on style, but that really means just one thing: Joe Biden's demeanor....

    Original title:Ghost of an over-confident Al Gore will haunt smirking Vice President Joe Biden who tried too hard to make up for his boss' weakness . . . and was caught fibbing about the U.S. intelligence community ------------------------ 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...

    The title of this post does not fully express the disgust with which I watched the Vice-Presidential debate last night. Paul Ryan and Joe Biden sat down at a table in the first face to face meeting of the two tickets vying for the Presidency since Mitt Romney wiped the floor with Barack Obama. There was never a doubt that Paul Ryan would be in command of the issues. He always is and is more than capable of articulating them with precision and accuracy. There was also no doubt that Joe Biden would be on the attack and that is...

    Paul Ryan readies for the Biden Treatment. I'd like to share a story on Senator Joe Biden that happened 31 years ago, and may be relevant to Biden's Thursday evening debate with Paul Ryan. It involved Biden's international humiliation of a good man, and it became a habit for Biden. -snip- The "good man" I'm referring to is William P. "Bill" Clark, also known as Judge Clark. Clark, now 80 years old, living in Paso Robles, California, was Ronald Reagan's confidant, closest aide, and single most important adviser in the effort to take down the Soviet Union. -snip- ...a grinning...
