  • 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...

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....
