I don't think vp debates have quite that much sway. It would be nice to see
Joe do well, though.
Debate moderator, Martha Raddatz worked on the Harvard Law Review with Obama.
Obama attended her 1991 wedding. Obama appointed her husband, Julius
Genachowski, to the Federal Communications Commission. Genachowski is a major
fundraiser for the president’s re-election effort. I am sure
Joe will be given every opportunity to shine
Joe has a chance, considering obama and the moderator are buddies. I think joe
should be joe and he'll give us one good gaffe after another. If your
serious about getting jobs and putting people back to work and cutting our debt
and paying it off. Then you should listen to Paul Ryan as he explains his ideas
of what needs to be done. It would be refreshing if the democrats came up with
an idea other than "we'll raise taxes and borrow more money" that
will save the nation! Just look at Spain, Greece and other european countries
that have saved themselves by borrowing, spending, and taxing more....I think the vp debates have more sway than democrats are leading on.
They're just scared what joe will do and say during the debate. Just like
the job numbers this regime have fudged and changed how unemployed are counted.
Smoke and mirrors. Find someone else to blame for each of their miserable
failures.Hopefully this regime is on it's last leg and the
American people are awake and aware of the crimes being committed against them
by this regime.
All Ryan has to do to win the debate would be to say "I would like to cede
my time to VP Joe Biden" and then sit down.Joe Biden would sink
himself with another one or more of his long list of gaffes where he admits
"the middle class has been buried the last 4 years" and/or "yes, we
plan to increase taxes by a trillion dollars".This guy is a
train wreck that can't be stopped. The ironic thing is that all his gaffes
are really just blatant honesty about how dire the economic situation is and how
draconian their spending plans actually are.The dude has no filter
which just lets everyone get a better insight to how deluded the democratic
OH Joe needs to be Joe! That is the biggest gaff yet. Is Obama taking a dive and
tossing in the towel this election? Because what Joe are you going to get the
mean nasty Joe? the Plagiarist Joe? The laughy Gaffy Joe? The Joe that just
pulls numbers out of his four point contact Joe? It will be fun to watch!
Joe Biden is spectacular speaking off the cuff. The sometimes brash Ryan seems
to have tried to curb his Mr. know it all persona since becoming the VP choice.
Wise move, Kid Ryan. I wouldn’t miss this debate.
Good to see the righties making excuses already because they know Ryan's
going to get schooled by Biden! Obama went to a wedding in 1991 of
somebody he went to college with--heaven forefend! By the way, that couple has
divorced about a decade ago. Ryan: Voucher Care, buddies with the
"legitimate rape" guy and co-signed his bill, wants to gut social
security (the very same he benefited from with survivor benfits), proposed
budget that hammers middle class while benefiting the 1%, voted against Lilly
Ledbetter ActBiden: Staunch supporter of middle-class, drafter of
Violence Against Women Act, served with great leadership on Foreign Relations
Committee, helped with arms control, great statesman, etc.Yeah, I
can see how you are nervous about Ryan tonight, he's got a beat-down behind
the woodshed coming! Yo Joe!
Yawn. Lucky for America there are the MLB playoffs and an NFL game. Some
Americans may find watching two baggage handlers act like kids but most will
"Debate moderator, Martha Raddatz worked on the Harvard Law Review with

University of Utah. You might want to update your profiles on liberal news media
@CraigThose are later elements of her bio and are true. She went to East
High and the U in the 1970s.
@ WildcatO-town, UT"Good to see the righties making
excuses already because they know Ryan's going to get schooled by
Biden!"You forget that this is a debate and not clown or gaffe
school. The only thing joe has going for him, is that everyone (including his
own party) knows he's incapable of not fouling things up in front of the
camera.I expect the moderator, much like the last one during the
president debate, to help joe when needed. I'm sure they rehearsed what to
do. Remember when Jim had to tell the president what he should have been saying
and trying to clarify things for the president. Then jim tried to interupt
Romney and not allow him to speak or respond.It's just like
football or other sports. You go on the field to play against your opponent and
the refs. You just have to outperform.I'm sure the left media
has been working on how to spin everything joe and ryan say, to make sure joe
comes out godlike.Reading abc, nbc, cbs after the presidential
debate you'd think obama controlled and did well; if you didn't watch
Mr. empty suit#2 will be destroyed tonight which will be the final nail on their
campaign coffin. How can you defend going without a budget for 4 years, the
Libya debacle, Solyndra, etc? Can't wait to see Mr Jo explain away on their
failure of the past 4 years...
@Craig Clark - "Joe is spectacular speaking off the cuff". Which part
is he spectacular at? Is it the swear words? Is it the continued gaffs? Even
Obama says that he has to real in Old Joe every now and again. We give Obama a
hard time about tele-prompters. This guy needs one and has to stick to it. I
am sorry but your statement is comical.@Wildcat - "Good to see
the righties making excuses already"What excuses are being made?
Because someone gives a fact about the moderator and who she is. But then
again, I guess the left is use to hiding the truth and lying to the American
people so they wanted this to go unnoticed. I personally could care less who
she is or where she is from. I am not worried about Ryan at all tonight, he
will represent just fine.@Craig Clark - "Martha Raddatz is from
Salt Lake City and attended the University of Utah. You might want to update
your profiles on liberal news media figures."Because Utah has no
libs or left wingers here right? You want to check media figures, you may want
to check political stats of a state.
@Craig ClarkWhat it is about your comment that negates the fact that
Martha Raddatz has close ties to this administration?She could have
been from Tulsa and gone to Oral Roberts University, but she still has far more
than mere casual ties to Obama and her husband is financing Obama's
campaign.Nice try at obfuscating though
So the Comedy Central simulcast of the Joe Biden Roast is tonight. I've
been waiting for this for weeks.I'm all ears tonight for some
good ol' humor from good ol' Joe..."the intellect of
the Democrat Party"... Thanks Clint!It's week #2 of the
'Prime Time Political Woodshed Hour'
"I expect the moderator, much like the last one during the president debate,
to help joe when needed. I'm sure they rehearsed what to do."==========You should pass along to Fox News how Obama and Lehrer
conspired to fix the debate. Maybe Hannity and O'Reilly will fight over who
gets the scoop.I expect Biden to get tough questions and follow-up
from Martha Raddatz. She gives passive treatment to no one she grills. It should
be a sharp contrast to Jim Lehrer failing to press Romney when he neatly
sidestepped answering the question of whether his Medicare plan would be to
voucherize it. But Jim is getting up there in years and is slowing down which
turned out to be an early Christmas present for Mitt Romney last week.
"You should pass along to Fox News how Obama and Lehrer conspired to fix the
debate." AKA I know you are but what am ISo now pointing out the
ties that the debate moderator has to the Obama campaign is a Fox News issue?another nice (but blatant) try at obfuscating
I wonder if Joe will refer to Pres. Obama as “the first mainstream African
American candidate, who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking
"Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice
president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a
better pick than me." --Joe Biden
"You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight
Indian accent.... I'm not joking." --Joe Biden
If something ever happened to Obama, Biden would be in charge....
Say what you want about Joe but I would take Joe 100-1 over Obama as president.
Not saying much I know but at least Biden - although he may be dumb - isn't
a radical + dumb.
Wildcat, Your interpretation of Ryan and his budget indicate you have been
watching too much MSNBCCraig,You site where she went to high
school and collegeThey say what has happened in the last 4 yearsand
THEY need to update their bios? REALLY?
Hopefully Joe just take his false teeth out and dumps them in a glass of water
right at the start. That will startle Paul "I never had a job" Ryan and
get him back peddling faster than B.O. at a presidental debate.
@man of few words"If something ever happened to Obama, Biden would be
in charge...."You do realize that the alternative was Palin
right? Anyway, I'd much rather have Biden in there than Ryan. Ryan's
radical budget that lowers tax rates on Romney to 0 (by eliminating the capital
gains tax) and slashes Medicaid by over a third, as well as his far-right
extremism on social issues (he's the one who worked with Akin on limiting
abortions to just "forcible rape") is not what we need.
Ann Romney on Mitt, "I think my biggest concern obviously would be for his
mental-well being."If Romney wins, Romney will be in
charge--well actually not really, Koch Enterprises et al would be, but you never
know what Mitt would be at the podium: moderate Mitt or severely conservative
Mitt."A well-lubricated weather vane"-- Jon Huntsman Jr. on
Mitt RomneyRomney is like the Governor of Texas in the show The Best
Little Whorehouse in Texas: he likes to dance a little sidestep. The reporters
talking to each other on that show sum him up well."Did you get
any of that?""I hear him talking but he don't come
in.""Is that a yes or a no?""It's a
90 minutes is not enough time for ryan to explain his various explanations
regarding his budget proposal...so eagerly adopted/reset, rebooted,
etch-a-sketched by severely moderate (today) multiple choice mitt.ryan's own words.And, don't bother fact-checking the
debate.Which Romney has stated he won't let fact-checkers
(except FOX NEWS) determine the daily reclarifications of his campaign.So, ryan can feel free to avoid all archived positions on the economy, foreign
policy, immigration, personhood, woman's rights etc., and make-up new
position statements.Just like Which Romney.No problem.
Romney team stays right of right.
After seeing the debate with the tirades of Biden interrupting Paul Ryann almost
once a minute was not professional, courteous or orderly. The VP must have had
the orders from the President to be disruptive for Ryan, which is normal with
his loud voice and snearing smile everytime Ryan attempted to talk.I
believe Ryan is right that Biden didn't speak about their performance and
just blamed everything on his inheritance from President Bush II. They would
have had such a wonderful 4 years except for the budget and economy. He wanted
to be able to spend us into delirium if he had the economy of Hillary's
husband. Well, the one commentator I saw said it was the worst
debate from a Vice President in 40 years and since the moderator was a good
friend of the President, I guess there was no bias on her part. If Biden gets
judged to have been second fiddle with Ryan, I guess their campaign will blame
the moderator as they did with Lehrer last week. It was comforting
to know that Biden believes everything he says. He mentioned that he really
cares for people but his yearly donations are $300.
I thought it was interesting at the end when joe states that he is very Catholic
and practicing for all of these years and believe in it's teachings. Which
their faith states life begins at conception. Then biden explains that a woman
and her doctor have the right to terminate that life for any reason. So from
biden himself, he states that a woman and a doctor have the right to slaughter
an unborn child for any reason (inlcuing "mistakes"). That's a kind
caring bigger government taking care of the weak and those that can't
protect themselves alright.I like that Congressman Ryan pointed out
that if Catholics under this regime are able to practice their religion and to
protect life from conception, then why is the church having to sue the Federal
government to keep that right?I would have liked a response from
biden on that.It just amazes me that democrats "love people"
unless it is an unborn child then use taxpayer dollars to kill them off asap.
But if a terroists takes American lives, then we did something wrong and
can't bring them to justice.
This President doesn't move forward in anything and so to hope it halts a
forward movement is probably very satisfying for him.His man, Joe
Biden, was practicing just want the President does very well to us, speak down
to us at whatever costs.Joe Biden didn't put forth anything
original and with conviction. He just couldn't even speak when he was told
he didn't speak about performance of the past 4-years of the
President's administration.How could he? There is nothing
positive. The VP even showed his religion colors last night. What a shame for
his church. He didn't even do that well. His definitions of what he is
practicing must be different than the people of conviction. I
can't believe we potentially could have this person in front of our faces
like last night for 4 more years and with the potential of being the President
for a moment or other length of time.It was dismal last night. I
bet the President was sweating worse than when he killed Bin Laden. Probably
even more than as a pusher of abortion and in litigation with the Catholic
Church for us.
