  • Ryan is getting destroyed.

      Certainly being shouted down at least. This debate is just a tryout for a possible replacement President anyway.

      I don’t know about that, Ryan held his ground, kept his cool, and let smiling Biden laugh and interupt his way to a potential loss on this one.

      • Ryan got destroyed and when Ryan was asked the follow up question about abortion his body language told the truth. He took in a huge breathe, exhaled and looked lost for a few seconds.

        • Anonymous

          I think Ryan laid out his position on abortion rather well and then did a nice job of calling out Biden’s hypocritical position on the issue with his own church and the policies he has supported while in elected office.

            your position on the issue, and everyone else’s for that matter, is already decided…..why would you be foolish enough to think the guy would try and persuade you to think otherwise?

          • Anonymous

            He’s not trying to persuade anyone, he’s trying to force them to adhere to his beliefs. To limit the choices women have. He told the bean story to try and give himself some character. He said he would like to stack the Supreme Court and have Roe v. Wade reconsidered. But he also said that he’s fine with abortion in cases of rape and incest. Well guess what — the SJC doesn’t issue decisions like that. It would be either abortion is legal or it’s illegal. They don’t legislate and they wouldn’t be able to carve out exceptions if they decided that abortion in unconstitutional. There is the hypocrisy or the lie in Ryan’s statements.

          • Anonymous

            You need to pay more attention. Ryan never mentioned the SC. Biden brought up the issue of the Supreme Court and made predictions about future appointments by Romney as a scare tactic.

            Just another example of the Left not lsitening and only hearing what they want to hear.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah and I guess Ryan was too ashamed to admit what his stance and votes have been and what they will be going forward. Biden pressed him on his votes and Ryan ignored him. Why should a candidate be ashamed of his positions?

            Actually Ryan said that unelected judges should NOT be able to weigh in on the matter; it should be up to the people.

            You say he wants to limit women’s choices. They already have choices: If you must give in to a biological need to procreate (or more likely have fun), use birth control. Abortion is quite a radical form of birth control when there are so many other ways to prevent it, including crossing your legs. It’s not like going out to your garden and thinning out the newly germinated carrots you don’t want…..

            Ryan was referring the the Roe v. Wade decision. He talked about the Supreme Court. You can admit I’m right on that — it won’t hurt.

            Wolfy – do you support “limiting the choices” of armed robbers breaking into your house and murdering you and your family? Do you support removing all support for seniors in nursing homes because they are no longer viable and cannot provide for themselves? 

            Abortion is murder.When one considers that 40% of all African-American babies are aborted in New York City every year, one can also reasonably assert that abortion is genocide.

            The only one who seems concerned with controlling womens bodies is you sir, as you are the one who keeps bringing it up.

            I believe Ryan’s position is that of support for the unborn human being that is a fetus and IS a human life, therefore deserving of all the other constitutional protections that all other human lives in our country are afforded, the first of which being the right to life.

            I find it rather curious when people who reject the concept of god, immediately turn to support those who wish to act as god themselves, choosing which human being survives and which is cut from the womb and terminated.

            Oh enough of such pious hypocritical nonsense.  First, you TeaPublicans talk on and on about how much you care about the UNborn.  Well, how much do you care about the BORN?  And even the unborn?  No prenatal care.  No postnatal care.  No HeadStart.  No early childhood education.  No upper level education.  No food assitance.   Just endless tax giveaways to your corporate masters so they can have more mansions and yachts while they kill our jobs.  Endless wars. More trillions to the military industrial complex.  And these poor children?  Once born, you call them “useless riffraff with welfare queen mothers who belong in jail”.  And then you talk about how much you love Jesus.  Jesus would be sickened by the TeaPublicans and their LIES and their ROTTEN actions.

            Do you believe the US government has the right or the responsibility of regulating the womb?  Do you believe that your next door neighbor has the right or responsibility of regulating the womb? 
            If you do not have a womb and by you moniker I would assume you do not …. then substitute penis for womb and answer the questions again.
            The womb in not mechanical incubator … it is an organ within the female body.  It is not separate from her body and should not be regulated by outside entities any more than a male’s testes and penis are separate from the male or should be regulated by outside entities.

            this is NOT about a women’s womb you miscreant

            the US government has the responsibility to protect LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

            allowing self-righteous murderous women such as yourself to shamelessly destroy another person’s life is not what our government was founded to achieve

            if you care so much about your womb, then close your legs or use one of the numerous forms of extremely effective birth control out there to manage it for you….but don’t come crying to the rest of us when you get knocked up by some punk trustafarian in the dirty stall of a nightclub and want to abort the product of your own irresponsible actions, because at that point you are nothing but an ignorant, lowlife murderer…

            Sorry pal,
            Not a Lib, an Independent. So let me see, you don’t want abortion, you don’t want free contraception, you don’t want women & children on state aid. You believe everyone is responsible for their own actions (which I agree with), and if you make a mistake, tough luck. So what do you propose? mandatory sterilization for all people below the poverty line, or were you thinking more along the lines of “A Modest Proposal”?

        I dont know what debate you watched, but Ryan got destroyed.  The minute that Biden mentioned the 47% comment and the fact that the GOP would keep tens of thousands of military over in Afghanistan to watch their oil refineries, Ryan was Dead Meat.  Biden got all of what Obama lost and then some back.  He proved that the Middle Class will be completely destroyed with Romney/Ryan in office and proved the only way women will keep their rights is with Obama back in office.  Romney/Ryan is a very dangerous pair to put in the most important roles of this country and I honestly believe the American People saw that during tonight’s debate.  Now Tuesday, Obama can put Romney away and end this thing.

She was asked how she knew and she stated that she spent 2011 reading the UHC bill and what Ryan stated is in fact in the bill. She further stated that senior will have limited access to healthcare after age 65.

        All the political pundits agree that if all you have to talk about is someones personal appearance or demeanor then you are admitting that you lost the debate. Joe Biden  came out strong and he stayed strong through the whole debate . I think the polls will show a strong win for Biden.

          Biden was his typical arrogant and condesending self. He continually interupted because Ryan was scoring points. That is one of the oldest tricks in a debat. When you see that your opponant is making sense, interrupt and try to get him off point.

          The defining moment of the debate was when Biden confirmed that the Obama Administration intends to continue to lie about our Ambassador being killed in Lybia.  Biden stated twice that they never knew that the Ambassador and his staff asked for more security forces and that was an absolute lie.

    I have evidence. Water falls from the sky in the form of rain when it succumbs to the forces of gravity. Then, the very same water turns around and evaporates back up into thin air, thereby laughing at the very same gravity that put it there in the first place. How would that be possible without divine intervention? More evidence? There is no end to the universe. You could have a telescope that increased it’s power by a billion times a second for your entire lifetime and you still would not be able to see past the end of your nose on the scale of the universe.

          chose the struggle, and I find life all the richer for it, despite what little I understand.  And who knows, in the end perhaps we will even find evidence that some god created it all after all…

      Regarding Biden’s “interruptions”-there’s a VERY good reason he interrupted.Ryan was setting himself up for a campaign ad soundbite  but unless they can erase Biden’s voice over it won’t work.Even if they did,the correct audio is there.

     That’s a really sick statement if you stop and think about what you just wrote.

  • Jonathan Smith

    Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times and was extremely disrespectful while pushing outright lies that contradict the White House and even the State Department. Nothing new for this career political hack – Biden needs to be retired from public office- he personifies what is wrong with Washington – Joe Biden is on par with other career Senators (VP now obviously) who live in a bubble. Many readers on here will not call out Biden for being a pathological liar though – he gets a free pass from his simple minded fan base.

      It’s about someone laughs in Ryan’s face for his ridiculous ideas.

      Ryan says his math absolutely works out, but then admits the plan isn’t even developed yet. How then can the math work out? I think you’re talking about yourself with your “simple minded fan base” and “pathological liar” comments.

    Being over  55, Paul Ryan scares me and Joe was correct. We were in a big mess after Bush and it will take some time to get ourselves back in order. Bill Clinton left the USA in good shape so I believe we need to stay the course. I need social security and Medicare not some wacked out voucher plan.

       If you’re over 55,you should be fine.Even Rmoney has said that is the cutoff number(not that I believe him on that either)Notice that when LePage went after the DEL,etc.he used a cutoff of between 48-54.NOBODY will address the real problem-the millions under 40 who are getting”mental disability”benefits for decades for NO REASON WHATSOEVER!

    • If the whole economy goes to crap then everything is out the window including your social security and medicare! Have you seen what is happening in Spain and Greece lately? If we were in a “big mess ” after Bush where are we now? A trillion a year added to the deficit with no end in sight. The big mess has become a gigantic mess and Obama owns it. He continues to provide NO leadership. That is what this country is sorely lacking.

  • Sam Osborne

    If “swinging” succinctly states how the debate started, then Joe Biden effectively ended it by decking Paul Ryan. 

    And as he was getting pummeled a punch drunk Ryan kept dropping his guard by trying cast blame that this administration was doing what Ryan and all Congressional Republicans were trying to do and that is to blame the others guy for what he and other Republicans have tried to cause.  This coming from one of the Republican operatives in the House that has been instrumental in trying to do what the Republican leader of the Senate said was their one and only goal: to make this a one term president.

    In spite of their efforts to damage any progress to dig out of the mess Bush-Cheney caused, President Obama has valiantly moved forward in spite of the way Republicans have tried to get their one and only goal of perpetrate on America the very failure they now try to blame on the other guy.

    No wonder Republicans in Congress have only a 7% approval rating which places them down there with Dick Cheney and a bad case of acne.  Meanwhile, who won?  As seen in this debate by Biden, the American people with whom Biden and President Obama have been standing with and fighting
    for as Republicans have been intentionally trying to make a mess of the country.

    Evidently, the so-called gaffes of Biden have been carefully calculated over these past 5 years of campaigning and being in office, or he had memorized the script so carefully that there was no chance of “mis-speaking.”  Tell the lies often enought, and eventually the dumbed down and even some smarter ones will believe them!

          I’m not the one regurgitating talking points here — nice try on spinning it around.

          I’m glad Biden interrupted Ryan and laugh in him. It’s about time somebody does. I’d be against the interruptions if Ryan was actually saying things of substance, but he wasn’t. He had non-math, lies (somehow his tax plan isn’t created yet, but the math DEFINITELY adds up), and talking points. 

          Why couldn’t Ryan indicate what they would be doing differently in the middle east? They love to slam the Obama administration for all their failures, but then they can’t even articulate specifically what they’d be doing differently. 

          I care about substance and I couldn’t care less about these stupid little details like how Biden pointed his finger too much or Ryan drank too much water. I don’t care. I care about their policies and the policies that Romney/Ryan are pushing are junk. Seems you’re the opposite of me, because you watched the debate with the sound off.

          • You are going to be soooooo disappointed in November. You don’t care about “stupid little details” which automatically qualifies you for life membership in the Joe Biden fan club. I did try to watch with the sound off so my wife would stay in the room. That didn’t work. She left the room. I bet that many other women did the same thing and many men turned to the Thursday Night Football for relief from the Joe Show. Ryan was right to quote Obama by saying if you can’t run on your record you need to demonize the opposition. That was the best Biden could do last night and he failed. Miserably. Still haven’t heard your defense of Joe being Joe. Sounds like you liked it.

I then turned the sound back on and watched the Joe Show through until the end. I do care about substance that is why Romney is perfect for me.

            He proved it. He was asked for specifics as to which loopholes he was closed and he said he didn’t know yet. That means there is no equation to check, to add up. Then he said a drop in the margins would be 1.2 trillion less in revenue and that every single loophole and deduction adds up to 1.1 trillion. He also said that he wouldn’t take away the middle class’s deductions and loopholes. That means he needs to some how get to 1.2 trillion to be revenue neutral, despite the fact that there is much less than 1.1 trillion in loopholes (especially if he won’t touch the middle class).

            Paul Ryan made perfect sense to me. Until Obama assumed the Office he did not have access to information with which he could have arrived at a qualified opinion, judgement or decision. Is that a fair statement? Of course it is.

            Why can you not extend the same standard to the non-Office holder challengers in this election cycle? I respect Paul Ryan for the wisdom he displayed for not shooting his mouth off like he knew everything that (conversely) Obama has had full access to and made his decisions upon  but cannot claim pride in his actions because there’s no there there…and he knows it.

            downgrade in the U.S. credit rating and for the first time raising
            serious questions about U.S. financial stability.Issued
            106 new major rules that cost U.S. businesses $11 billion in
            implementation and more than $46 billion each year.
            Cut authorization of permits restricting drilling in Gulf and

            slowed permitting of new oil drilling so our future oil supply
            will be restricted and gas prices will be higher.Mandated
            third party certification for all manufacturers participating
            in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program, which
            has raised costs for manufacturers and created a disincentive for
            participation in the program.
            Funded Solyndra and other unworthy companies, wasting taxpayer
            money but also discouraging other privately funded companies from
            entering the market.Only moved on Bush free trade agreements and
            failed to enter one new free trade agreement, even while our
            competitors have entered many, making U.S. goods more expensive to
            export.
            Pushed for passage of card check legislation that would
            infringe upon the rights of workers and make the United States a
            less desirable place to open a business.
            Imposed a requirement that every employer with more than 49
            employees provide health care insurance or pay a fine.Sought and signed the
            Dodd-Frank financial reform law with its hundreds of new rules
            and restrictions that impose billions in new costs on financial
            companies.Advocated for the “Buffett
            Rule,” which would discourage U.S. investment and barely dent
            the deficit.Created
            new emissions standards for industrial boilers that may cost
            hundreds of thousands of U.S. businesses a total of $14.5
            billion.Set

            innovation and consumer choice and raising product costs.Neglected to do anything about providing
            guns to Mexico drug cartels, which resulted in the death of
            U.S. Border Patrol agents, causing worldwide doubt as to U.S. rule
            of law.Perpetuated the fraud of “green

            That’s not what I asked and you know it. We’re talking the middle east. You and Ryan can’t answer the question, because you don’t have an answer. That’s painfully obvious.

            No, you didn’t answer the question. What should be done differently in the middle east. Neither you nor Ryan answered the question. Dodd-Frank has nothing to do with the middle east. 

            Not only that, you’re a plagiarist. That isn’t your list, you copied and pasted it from the internet.

            Romney is not my 1st choice so saying I love him is incorrect, and  I found several articles that I found things to add to my list that I do not agree with. If I had just copied and pasted it would of been much larger

    I always thought Biden was an ok guy but after last night, he demonstrated a side of him which wasn’t very nice. He was rude, kept interrupting Paul and and tried to prevent Paul from expressing his thought. We teach our children not to interrupt others, use manners and don’t try to bully others. Sorry Joe, your out of here.

  • PabMainer

    Joe Biden acted like he was cordially speaking with the folks on the View or casually laughing and making light of our country’s issues and problems with Letterman or Leno…..Joe Biden was disrespful of Paul Ryan and kept whining about having equal time to speak when in fact he had more than adequate time…..IMHO, his disrespect for his debating opponent showed a like disrespect for all American citizens, America’s allies and for the seriousness of America’s most important issues at hand…..he reflects the contemptuous and dismissive attitude of the current President and administration and America cannot continue to wait for the hope and change promised by this President 4 years ago…..it’ s all a bunch of “stuff” and “malarkey” he stated….this is the verbiage used by the VP folks….time for a Romney & Ryan administration…….

      Politics can be tough on the weak and Paul Ryan was weak on defense and the economy.  He has a plan but it is a secret.  He is against the women’s rights and supports rape except forceable rape.  Sorry, American’s are not ready for the cult leader Romney, and his side kick Willard-boy.

      • He does not disrespect the 47% but he does recognize that reducing the tax burden for people who don’t pay any probably is not going to interest them. What percentage of the American public does Obama– the Hollywood elitist-Harvard guy-who has never worked a day in his life disrespect? Calculate that one and get back to me.

          “the Hollywood elitist-Harvard guy-who has never worked a day in his life”  your description of Romney is perfect.  Thanks for posting! :)

  • Biden is a heartbeat away from being president. Frightening. The pressure of the debate was WAY too much for him. Being president would be impossible. I wonder how many people switched over to Thursday Night Football. Bet their ratings were through the roof.

      Mr. Biden stated last night, and has made the comment previously, “If the Republicans would just get out of the way”……pretty clear that instead of working for bi-partisan relationships in the House & Senate this guy cares only about agendas…..The President claimed that he would cross-the-aisle and mend barriers to progress politically, which he (President Obama) has not done…..Mitt Romney worked with both political parties very successfully while Gov. in Mass. which Mr. Ryan spoke of this last night….Joe Biden spoke very little about his President last night while Mr. Ryan continuously spoke of Mr. Romney and a Romney/Ryan administration….. Joe Biden is a clear example of why Sen. Snowe is leaving Washington….we need to rid Washington of the Joe Bidens and allow more bi-Partisan leaning people the opportunity to work together in Washington….A Romney / Ryan administration is the start of a hope and change America so desperately needs….

    I was going to vote for Romney anyway.  But seeing how rude and arrogant Biden was I’m sure they lost alot of independent votes.  Thanks Joe.  It would have been nice to actually hear Ryan’s comments.  But with all of the butting in and laughing(i think he was drunk) is was too difficult.  Biden came off as a bully and someone who needs to retire in January.

    IF Obama/Biden win I can’t wait to see the look on Mitch McConnell face.  Him and his republican party has attempted to obstruct most everything President Obama has tried to accomplish.  This country would be far better off if the republicans had not obstructed.  Republicans…”get out of the way.”

    I had to laugh when Joe laughed.  Especially funny when Joe brings up Romney’s SNAFU about Us 47 % who never got dirt under our fingernails and prefer to live off the rich.

    Ryan told Joe “we all say strange things…” or, words to the effect that Mitt and he both really love us 47% – the video camera just happened to catch Mitt off guard.   Now that’s laughable.  Another good script idea for SNL  Forget it – both love us 100%. 

    Who can’t help but laugh after two years of non-stop gaffes and flip-flops  by Mitt, and now Ryan, who’s been told to cool it on abortion and his hatchet attacks on Medicare for us old duffers, as well as the SS – our survival jacket?   

    Now they have a new plan.

     It’s something like a coupon you cut from the newspaper.  Ryan calls it a voucher.  Forget your Medicare or Medicaid, you’ll get a voucher and shop for your own medical coverage – even  driving your wheelchair at 96.  

    Mitt and Ryan are strong on foreign policy and diplomacy.  Mitt believes he straightened out the Brits on running the Olympics.  Ryan believes that the president was at fault for an unprovoked guerrilla attack on the American ambassador.  

    Even funnier is to see a gray haired lady outside debate hall calling the president a “commie,” and unable to explain  what the word meant.  

    After four years and billions of dollars spent shooting down a man, surely we’ll get something out of it than a few laughs.

      What amazes me is that Romney/Ryan says there will still be the traditional medicare available for those who want it.  What they fail to tell you is, over time, it’s going to cost people money out of pocket to maintain the basic medicare we now enjoy for “free.”  Think about that you younger than 55 year old folks.  If Romney/Ryan win…you lose.

      • Hey TrainguyJim……newsflash. IT AIN’T FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is exactly that mindset that is the problem. If someone else is paying it has to be free right? Too many people in this country have latched onto FREE leaving not enough money to pay for those who truly can’t. The only thing Obama wants to do is add more taxes giving the government more of MY money to spend to buy votes and give away Obama phones. No program is safe to cut EVER! Ever hear of baseline budgeting? When someone even proposes to cut the rate of GROWTH it is portrayed as throwing granny off the cliff in her wheelchair.  We cannot sustain the level of spending for all of these programs. Neither Republicans nor Democrats are willing to make the hard choices because they are afraid of losing your vote. Sad. Obama had his chance. Time for him to move on and give someone else a chance.

    I’ve been watching VP/Presidental debates since Kennedy/Nixon and I can truthly say I have never seen anything so bizzare as last night.  Biden behaved so badly and disrespectful towards his ‘friend’ that I am truly amazed that Ryan didn’t come unglued and deck him!!!  That tells alot about his character.

    To think that Biden is next in line to be our President; OMG!!!  This guy acts like he’s two fries shot of a happy meal.
