Grossly overweight (physically, mentally, politically) leftist to "moderate" 2nd presidential debate:
(About Paul Ryan choice) "Doing her part Saturday was CNN's Candy Crowley who claimed some Republicans (unnamed, of course) think this "looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish."
Mr. Romney, not again - and probably BHO will get the questions before the debate (again),
so the deck is already 2:0 against you.
LEARN TO SAY NO!!! Now it is your turn to name a Republican moderator.
Otherwise, refuse to debate - can yo imagine the furor of the left? ;)
Biden showed true Alinsky tactics in the debate. Although I was unable to watch it and haven't yet I have seen clips and heard about it. It seems as though he was trying to "marginalize" everything and make it a joke. Thats straight out of "Rules for Radicals". Thats all Bidens performance was.
Hard working people that have lost almost everything don't think that this is funny. I was so ticked off with the jackass Biden, I turned the sound off. I couldn't listen to this jerk for one more minute, as I would have been at Walmart replacing my tv the next day.
Ryan may not have the debating attitude I like but he's a fine, up-standing man. Biden however...There is something seriously wrong with that man........
FuBar Ack had attended moderator's wedding, so I think Biden got the questions before the debate.
It was 2:0 against Ryan BEFORE the debate.
What an idiot Biden was, is and will be for the rest of his s*itty life.
iilii <------ my middle finger salute to him.
Biden is that obnoxious guy at the bar with a big mouth who annoys everybody around him and is too stupid to know that people are laughing at him not with him.
Well, of course a liberal like Joe Biden thinks fiscal responsibility is a joke. He's done nothing but spend OUR MONEY now for roughly 35 years. All liberals think fiscal responsibility is a joke. Obama and the Democrats haven't even passed a budget in over three years, so that tells you something about their ideas of fiscal responsibility.
Not to mention that they are ONLY jealous with Other People's Money. They are stingy when it comes to their own giving of charity.
Apparently they are a bit slow in recognizing that even the media drones are catching on to their failed policies and impotent arguments. Either that or their only fallback option is the Alinski doctrine.
I don't think that Biden will be invited to the funeral of Mr. Specter as it would be too embarrassing to hear him laughing all the time. His farts may emanate laughing gas as well, something that would be critical to the rest of the audience.
too bad Ryan wasn't watching his idiotic laughter...he might have say: "country is being ripped to pieces by you and FuBar Ack, millions looking for work - and you think it is funny?
Watch the 2nd prez. debate - FuBar Ack will get "Biden's load" at him then some.
And then some.
AND THEN SOME.
Hello, President Romney! kick his but from here to Cuba!!!
I think Biden could have a great career being a clown at children's birthday parties. Oh wait, he might frighten them.
Biteme Biden is a buffoon. The serious subjects that ARE a BFD to the American people and the families of the fallen in Benghazi are not a BFD to Biden. Looking at Biden's performance in the debate along with his Messiah in his debate, I'd have to conclude that stupid is as stupid does.
Looking at the polls in the immediate aftermath of the debate, even CNN, AP, and CNBC had Biden losing real bad or really badly.
Serious topics require a serious approach by serious people. That idea leaves out Biden and Obama.
Well said, 911. I was brooding a bit last night about that horrible man's treatment of Ryan in front of Ryan's children. The youngest may not have got it, but I bet Ryan's daughter and middle son did. There are no limits to the depths these creatures will sink, to try and demean an opponent. We have to make sure we sink them and their rotten acolytes but good in November.
Thanks. As long as Romney stays the course, I think that an epic a$$-whooping of the Obaminites could very well be in the cards in November.
There was a recent story online about a judge who is now in his 80's, but they still remember a few decades ago when Joe Biden ripped the guy apart - while smiling, of course - in front of his wife and children when it came to interviewing the judge for a position.
The judge's now grown son says that it stings to this day. Joe Biden is NOT a good man.
We need GOOD MEN in the white house again! I can hardly wait.
When the debate was over and the families walked up on the stage, I was wondering if Paul Ryan's mother wished she could call old Joe on the carpet for the way he treated her son. I also wondered if Joe's wife, Jill, secretly wished she could've snuck out the back door rather than go up on stage to claim her husband.
Leave it to Joe to laugh when issues get serious! Wonder if he was on ecstasy...makes one delusional!!!
The best joke will be on obama/Biden on November 6th when the American public vote Romney/Ryan into the White House!!!!!!!
The only thing I wish Ryan had mentioned during the debate is how as Vice President, Joe Biden is also officially "President of the Senate."
And, more importantly, how Joe Biden himself, has failed his own personal commitments and obligations by not doing what the Constitution demands.
I am happy to report to my fellow scoopers here in Florida and have seen more Romney ads then Obama which is music to my ears.
The MSM is hanging in there [for their Messiah] .... they continue to give cover to this fool by saying it was a draw.
Romney wouldn't have put out this ad if Joe wasn't so horrible. There are still liberals who think Joe won the debate. They're confused why Republicans won't admit that Ryan lost. It's really crazy.
Joe is an arrogant sob and did this on purpose to mock Ryan and us. Just look at his face and you can see it. He thinks he has it all wrapped up!
Joe Biden is a thug. Period. When I was watching the debate I was struck by how he was treating the moderator, Martha Raddatz. He was leaning toward her, jabbing his pen at her and yelling. He was trying to intimidate her. The moment I saw this stuff happening my first thought was "this will not play well with female viewers."
Sometime during her life every woman has had some jerk try to intimidate or harrass her. Whether it was a relative, an ex-husband or boyfriend, a boss or co-worker, a teacher or a professor, this happens to every woman. Some guy tries to threaten you with their physical size (I'm going to hurt you), or the position they hold (i'm going to fire you), or their authority (you're going to have trouble lady).
No woman who watched that debate will like Biden's treatment of the moderator. It will bring back all those old uncomfortable feelings of that moment when some guy tried to make her feel afraid and powerless.
I'd be really curious to know how how Biden's poll numbers with women look now.
He is a consummate elitist who apparently has a hard time setting it aside for the sake of hiding it.
A number of people were offended by Biden laughing at Ryan discussing serious subjects. To be honest I thought he looked foolish, immature and unstable.
If Obama does what I think he's going to do Tuesday I think the election will be over with Romney/Ryan triumphing on Nov. 6th. The American people are now seeing through the many faces of both Obama and Biden.
I heard Obama is going to attack Romney on Bain Capital but I have no doubt Mitt will be ready and have an appropriate response. If Obama does attack and cannot adequately answer the questions he will lose the debate. The problem is this debate is a townhall meeting and though many say Obama usually does well in this venue he will have competitiion for the audience attention. Since those attending are "supposed to be" undecided voters they will count demeanor as well as the answer.
Also referring to the Chicago attitude, that same arrogance Obama has shown on more than one occasion. He cannot help himself and as I read this week he disdains Romney. These things cannot be hidden. It becomes hard to hide WHO you are and as Joe Trippi ( and he's a Dem)said after the last debate Obama looked sour.
Obama was so panned after the last debate and Biden so praised for his foolish ways I think it will be hard for Obama to resist the praise he would get from acting like his arrogant self.
That would be nice but he can't afford to reveal his socialist agenda. Even the leftiest libtards would vote Romney if they knew 0 would have us all standing in line for a stale cabbage like in the old USSR.
It will be interesting to see who Romney appoints to his cabinet, and to head up regulatory agencies.
I'm in Oregon. Douglas county to be more precise. (former timber capital of the world before Clinton and Bush)
I would like to think that Palin could use the exposure that the establishment has given her to throw it back in their face one day, and in a real way. I supported Ron Paul, and found that Palin was one of the few on the stage speaking well about him.
I'm not nervous about the two party system anymore. I am fairly resolute to abandon it. I've been voting republican for about 22 years, and they have utterly failed to perform with any real differences between them and the liberals. (other than rhetoric)
I finally figured out that the establishment is in control, includes both parties, and is non-partisan. Then I figured out how they control elections, and how much control they have. It is too great to overcome working within the system, in my opinion.
Example: Republicans could have negated Roe V Wade when they had control of the congress, and with a simple majority vote.
I am not totally committed to a third party vote this time around. We'll see how close it gets. The other issue is that Oregon has not even been counted before the presidential elections are called, since I have been voting.
I have a cousin who is a state senator, and he agrees with me that my vote literally doesn't count.
Agreed. You just never know. Look at all the dem states that went for Reagan in '84? EVERYONE should vote against Obama no matter where they live.
I would ask that you consider voting for Romney if only to send a message to O'Bambi. We need every vote we can get because of nationwide voter fraud. Romney was not my candidate but I am supporting him because of Paul Ryan and what Ryan will bring to higher office. I also hope that Romney chooses some Tea Party members for his cabinet, mainly Allen West for Sec Defense. West and Rubio have been on stage with Romney so my fingers are crossed.
What state are you in? I'm in Washington, and so I am in the same boat. I'm not seeing the enthusiasm for obama (it was really bad around here in 2008) so I will go ahead and vote Romney just in case. Small drips turn into a flood. Sometimes.
I share your nervousness about our so-called 'two party system'. If he (Romney) screws up at least we will still be able to start a new Conservative Party of some stripe and primary him next time. Obama wins, I am not sure there will be another election.
As for Palin supporting McCain, I think it was just residual loyalty. Palin seemed somewhat annoyed with the old boy a couple of times, like when he referred to middle class Tea Party Americans as 'little people' and some other stuff. Also, remember she went against him a lot in endorsing Republican candidates for Senate last spring and summer. I think if she gets back in the game in any significant way again McCain won't be part of her 'party'. I could be wrong, but I think she is debt free now, to anybody.
I'm not voting for Romney, but I would if my vote counted where I live, for just the same reason that you point out. He will likely be less destructive than Obama. I am voting third party to help their overall numbers, because I believe that the two party dictatorship will ultimately kill our sovereignty and currency.
Three counties in my state literally vote for everyone else, and they are as liberal as anywhere else is. I will watch the polling, and if it is even close, I might consider voting for Romney, but we have to make a transition out of the two parties, in my opinion.
I just watched Palin's movie on netflix last night. It was very educational. It brought me closer to being a fan of hers, though I think that she lost some credibility supporting McCain in 2010. I think that she was probably a true anti-establishment person before she got drug into the national scene and destroyed by the press. She wouldn't have the national notoriety that she does now, but she would have preserved her anti-establishment integrity if she had turned down McCain.
I could probably support a Palin ticket with some enthusiasm, whereas I cannot with Romney.
I have had that thought too, esp. when Palin was apparently being shut out. The recent speeches and the first debate have been heartening because they present a better side...and a lot of the negative stuff during the primary could have been skewed input, rumor and innuendo. For instance, did Romney actually take part in smearing Palin, even if second hand? I don't thing the Romney I saw in Ohio yesterday would.
We will see. In any case I would prefer to take a chance on Romney over more of this sorry crap going on right now.
I hope and pray the real Romney is what we are seeing on the campaign trail right now.
Just would like Obama to answer on jobs and other issues because the press has been softballing him.
I am kind of beyond the fray on the jobs creation issue, because I don't think that either one is talking about what it will take to have a real recovery, which starts with a sound-sovereign currency, involves getting out of treaties, and requires the abolition of federal regulatory agencies.
I would say that Romney is winning the argument on this issue, and Obama has nothing believable to offer independents with half a brain. (not to mention his track record as president on changing the numbers for the better, other than lies)
I did hear who is coaching Obama but can't remember. It wasn't Clinton and I read Bill is very angry with Obama about Benghazi and has already hired attorneys to protect Hillary. There is no love lost there and wouldn't be surprised if Bill Clinton voted for Romney just to make his point.
The other thing is Obama has yet to come up with a plan to create jobs and nobody has pressed him on this issue. Perhaps, one of the questions will be what he plans to do to turn the economy around other than raise taxes. Don't think he has an answer because if he was honest he would be throwing the election away and he wants to keep his seat of power.
I tend to agree. I don't think that 0 is a very good "on the fly" actor, meaning that he can't change personalities very well. He doesn't know conservative principles well enough to put himself in the middle when needed for political purposes. The first time around, he had anti-Bush sentiment on his side, and people were not paying attention as much as they are now.
I would think that Clinton would be the one coaching him, but I don't think that Clinton actually wants him to win. Clinton is playing his role as a democrat supporter, but only because that is how he was cast through his career. Clinton is rooted deep in the establishment, and I think that the establishment wants Romney in. Sorry to say it, but I have thought this since the middle of the primary.
I bet Obama will try to be as rude and aggressive as Biden. Maybe not the laughing but I bet he gets up to interrupt Romney, shouting over him to bluster his way through. This campaign is that arrogant and stupid to do so.
Romney's domestic record neuters about half of what he could do to Obama. He really needed to hit zero hard on the foreign issues. Maybe he still can. Romney should be going after the fact that zero hired all of those lobbyists that he promised not to. Or, go after him for putting corporations in to head up the FDA and USDA. Or he could go after him for SWAT teaming small farms, organic food distributors,and dispensaries. (which he said he wouldn't do) Or, he could go after him for SWAT teaming Gibson Guitars in the process of enforcing foreigner's laws. The gulf oil spill is full of ammo for Romney, including putting an oil company in charge of our beaches and keeping reporters off of the beaches using corporate thugs.
I could go on all day, but suffice it to say that Romney could easily destroy Obama in this debate. Romney needs to take a lesson from Reagan and hit zero hard. Maybe he should read some transcripts of some of the candidates going at it from two hundred years ago. They really kicked some butt.
Romney needs to go to war with zero.
I heard Frank Luntz comment that Romney just needs to win one of the remaining debates to put this election away. I'm sure he knows more me, but I sure wish I had his confidence. I'm a firm believer that ANYTHING can happen and the sooner Romney can put it away the better I'll feel. After Thursdays nights display from Biden, one has to wonder what's in store for Tuesday. I can't believe Obama will make a fool of himself in the same fashion, but there is just no telling what the dems may come up with. Time will tell.
Obama could be destroyed in any of these debates, but Romney doesn't seem to want to push it that hard. That tells me that Romney either knows that he is going to win, or he is just afraid of a backlash for doing it.
I don't have much respect for undecideds to start with, because it is apparently possible for them to vote for zero.
If Obama starts in on Bain then Romney needs to jump on the subject of this latest Thomas Sowell article. I would love to see Mr. Obama try and eplain this away.
And he's planning to stomp all over Romney's days with Bain. He will lie, lie and lie like Biden and the moderator will allow it and not allow Romney to respond.
Romney needs to turn to O'Bambi and call him what he is, a liar, fraud and a bully! And then look at the American people and say: "If he treats the American people this way, just ask yourself how he treats foreign leaders and why Americans have died because of his irrational behavior."
Sounds about right. I not sure how this debate is being done, by I recall someone mentioning "town hall" style. If that is the case, then it might be less of a head to head situation. If this is the case, then 0 might have an advantage. Romney does better behind a podium "facing off" in a debate.
