I saw nothing that I didn’t predict. Vice President Joe Biden interrupted Paul Ryan 96 times in a 90 minute debate, to Ryan’s six interruptions. Nothing of substance was really covered.
Biden did what he was supposed to do and that was stop the Romney/Ryan juggernaut after the first Presidential debate.
Which is the only reason Biden kind of “won.”The only thing that prevented Biden from an outright win was his constant smirking and laughing.
It was obnoxious after a while. This is probably why the CNN focus group called it 32% for Ryan, 32% for Biden with 35% undecided. I don’t really see how this debate hurt badly or helped either side a lot.
The fact that Biden stopped the bleeding is why he “won” but neither side moved the needle.
Ryan showed sincerity and compassion and was very eloquent, but his youth and inexperience allowed Biden to walk all over him.
Biden definitely won the abortion argument, though Ryan definitely scored points with “If the Catholic Church agreed with you, why do they keep suing you?” in reference to Obamacare mandating religious hospitals pay for abortion.
I think that Liberals should just let Conservatives have their guns and Conservatives should let Liberals have their abortions- and be done with these distractions from what matters- Jobs and the economy.
Where were the questions about the skyrocketing cost of living? Gas, food and utilities have gone through the roof. Maybe they weren’t asked because she didn’t want to give Obama back the present he gave her when he attended her wedding. Which for some reason the Commission on Presidential Debates didn’t find to be a conflict of interest.
As screwed up as Lawyer “ethics” are, we would have to recuse ourselves from judging this case- but its OK if Liberals are incestuous.
Biden did his job very effectively which is why I give him the win.
All those years of appearing on the Sunday morning talk shows paid off. He’s done them for almost 40 years and knew how to dominate a panel discussion and not let your opponent get in a word edgewise.
Ryan was unflappable in the face of this assault by Biden- if he hadn’t been Biden would have crushed him.
For lack of a better description… this debate was a cockfight.
It’s hard to see how the average voter will come away with any tangible information or opinion from this debate.
Oh well, see you next week with the second Presidential debate.
