The Vice Presidential Debate

The Romney/Ryan camp has apparently insisted that Ryan be referred to as "Mr." during the debate rather than "Congressman." So Biden — presumably he's going by "Vice President" rather than like "Doc Biden" or something — has to refer to Ryan as "Mr. Ryan." Presumably this is because Congress is generally unpopular and they want to seem like outsiders. But isn't this exactly the kind of thing that makes you seem juvenile when someone leaks this on you? Good idea? Hard to figure.

I hope Biden got the memo & "accidentally" refers to him as "Congressman" all night.
|by Anonymous||reply 2||10/11/2012|
Even better, Ryan refers to Biden as "Mr. Vice President" and Biden replies with an "Aw, shucks, you can call me Joe".
|by Anonymous||reply 3||10/11/2012|
r1 I was going to suggest that too. What will the Ryan people do, issue a complaining press release?
|by Anonymous||reply 4||10/11/2012|
Ryan and Romney have to be two of the biggest pussies to ever run for Pres/VP.
Can you imagine if they did get into office? They're both so delicate they would have tons of requirements for the press and everyone else on how to deal with them.
They should be embarrassed but they're too self-righteous for that to sink in.
The fact that 90 percent of Mitt's TV appearances have been on Fox is another indication of how fragile they are.
There are so many reasons why these guys are a joke. They have no business running for the highest offices in the country - yet, America has them running neck-to-neck with Obama. It's maddening.

CNN had a taped interview with Ryan and he was asked about fact-checking some of the things he said. Paraphrasing, he said something like that if people are going to call him a liar, he's going to fight back and also suggested that fact-checking has a political (read: liberal) bias.

Reading the comments on that Business Insider link...it's like conservatives truly inhabit a different universe than the rest of us.

Good picture R494, Paul Ryan is looking at Biden like "I can't believe you just did that to me, old man."
Biden's looking back like "Yes I did."

loved it, watching the replay anyone who thinks Paul Ryan won that debate is lying to themselves.

Keep eating Candy, maybe your feet will swell up so much that you won't be able to walk next Tuesday and they'll have to replace your big biased ass.

R497, I was about to write something similar. What a vile site and all of the idiots give each other hundreds of thumbs up for *any* negative comment -regardless of accuracy- directed at Obama/Biden. Diseased minds over there.
I mean, you sure as hell don't have to love the Dems, but give me a fucking break with this bullshit of trying to act like Ryan didn't get his ass handed to him and that Biden is just a big "meany." Fucking cowards.
Those of us on the left called out Obama for being weak when he debated, yet these fucking assholes have the nerve to call US the "kool-aid" drinkers? Losers.

The right wing loons, pundits and loony pundits who are whining about VP Biden being "mean" or complaining about his expressions are basically admitting that Biden beat their boy on content.

Well, if the general consensus is that liberals/undecideds felt that Biden won and conservatives are claiming the debate a tie, the truth is that Joe must have won handily. Conservatives would never readily admit a loss; they are incapable of showing any objectivity.

Martha totally lost. Tired, old, dehydrated, raspy, fumbling, seemed like the wrong energy for this debate.

I thought Martha was good, the best moderator I can recall actually. Far better than the doddering Lehrer.

Since you are both Catholics and please get personal because this is an emotional issue, how do you guys feel about the killing of little babies...I mean abortion

Anyone who has ever watched Martha Raddatz knows she is all business, very professional and knows her issues, particularly foreign policy.
Her skill tonight showed. I think she should have moderated the Presidential Debates rather than the VP. You can not possibly choose Candy Crowley over Martha.

[R485] That was a promoted tweet. I saw it as well and was confused. Apparently you can pay to have a message tweeted to people even if they don't follow you. There was an option to dismiss it, which I did, hopefully to let them know I didn't appreciate it.

Biden clearly won. The media is showing cowardice and pro-Romney bias in claiming Ryan won. They are using the words that should have been used to describe Romney in the first debate "aggressive, disrespectful, etc." Joe could and did speak in a commanding style because he had substance, experience, and knew what he was talking about. Romney was aggressive with nonstop bluster and lies coming out of his mouth.

I agree that Martha was a good and tough moderator. She didn't let them weenie out as past moderators have done.

LOVE R494's pic. Biden and Ryan look exactly like tomcats looking aslant at each other just before the howling and asswhipping start. Biden, the old experienced yard cat, balls intact, is about to make pampered, neutered house cat Ryan REALLY regret darting out the screen door.

I don't know why, but've always had the impression that if God has a face it looks just like Biden's.

First numbers are now up, link up shortly. Debate drew less than 30 million viewers, 40 million less than the 72 million in 2008.
CBS: Vice presidential debate (8.3 million, 5.3/8) ABC: Vice presidential debate (7.5 million, 4.7/7) NBC: Vice presidential debate (7.1 million, 4.4/6) FOX: 5.2 million
72 million in 2008 for Sarah Palin + Joe Biden.

Where is the DL Poll Troll? What have the polls said about who won the debate?

Actually, it drew 51.4 million viewers. See link.

So, in hindsight, Biden's VP debate performance may have stopped or mitigated the Obama slide, but it did not really create an Obama bounce. The third presidential debate is crucial.
