FOX Snooze is going on and on about Biden being disrespectful. Big surprise there, huh? Of course they don’t really want to focus on what was actually said and was true and what was bullshit.

They are totally smoke screening the whole debate. SQUIRREL!

Ryan is making no sense and he is stuttering. Ryan hasn’t done his homework on the devastating toll the sanctions have taken on Iran.

Ryan didn’t answer a single question with specifics, not one. I call it for Biden.

EDIT: Hours later.

Looks as if I was here all on my lonesome. *sniff*

Hi Kalima, it doesn’t matter what homework Paul does because his basic premise does not play on TV or in front of any group that isn’t highly partisan and he knows it now. His problem is that he’s does not lie with the ease of Mitt Romney. His father must have rolled over and wept countless times by now.

Hi foodchain. We are taught as Roman Catholics from a young age that lying is a sin. Some RC Ryan turned out to be.

I don’t know about “malarkey” but Ryan sure has kissed “The Blarney Stone”. (deceptive or misleading talk)

I have a good friend who is RC, a lovely man who spoke the GOP line, is a precinct chairman He voted for Obama as did his nephew; it’s a family secret but they were very proud. And he tells me all the time–he’s 79 and that’s a big deal for him. I take joy and compassion from that.

Very wise man foodchain. If we believe as we should, in compassion for all and helping those less fortunate, we can’t vote against our core beliefs by voting for those who will oppress the poor, the needy and the sick. To claim to be Catholic and adhere to Republican policy, is another sin in my book. Good luck to your friend for seeing the truth about them, and acting on it by voting for Obama.

I listened in my bed on the radio and Joe rocked! I loved it when he called Ryan out as the liar he is!
Joe won hands down!

Hello nirek. I think listening to it on the radio is a great idea, I just listened to it again on this link below and wasn’t as distracted by the visuals, so I could hear every word.

The transcript and audio.

Nirek, I loved that Joe smile, laughed, showed his shiny teeth every time Ryan lied! No one else has had the —– to do that yet!! And don’t we need that about now.

FC, Joe has always spoken the truth which is refreshing. I like that he calls a lie a lie.

We were here, dear Kalima! We were just around the corner, chattering away on the “Live Events” place. And sorry we missed you.

It was definitely Biden’s night. He was absolutely amazing. One of the real high points was this one:

“If they would get out of the way and let us pass the tax cut for the middle class and make it permanent. If they would get out of the way and pass the jobs bill. If they would get out of the way and let us allow 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down but they never missed a mortgage payment. Just get out of the way. Stop talking about how you care about people. Show me something. Show me a policy. Show me a policy where you take responsibility.” ~ Joe Biden to the republican congress through Paul Ryan (VP Debate 2012)

Ryan looked juvenile and hostile. It was Joe’s night!

Kes, I loved that part–among many that Joe put out there for us–just get out of the way. He’s a good man; whatever his “gaffes are are so minor to his value, people should just give it up.

Busy throwing out the trash although I suspect there to be a pile more to throw out after Ryan follows in Romninny’s footsteps to lie throughout this debate. Go get him Joe!!

I’ll pop in after it’s finished. Have fun tearing Ryan to pieces. 🙂
