Vice President Joe Biden interrupted Paul Ryan 82 times in a 90-minute debate with rival Paul Ryan, while CNN reported that women preferred Ryan. “FACT: Final Count: Biden interrupted 82 times during the entire debate,” the RNC’s Joe Pounder tweeted after the debate. CNN’s Gloria Berger said that she would have liked Biden to show less “condescension” and “eye-rolling.” Even MSNBC’s Chris Matthews — who thought that Biden won the debate — said that Biden “was openly contemptuous and disrespectful” Staff has corrected text.
I don't know how you could say anyone 'won' this pathetic debate. The moderator lost complete control and came across like Biden and Ryan were both debating her. Liberal women are an embarrassment to my gender.
Biden belongs debating with the Three Stooges, any one of whom has triple his intellect. Biden memorized some things of which he had no command and other than that just counted on interrupting to try and knock Ryan off his game.
Ryan looked like he did his debate prep in Zippy's Choomobile. Biden needs professional help. But what really scares me about that polident-fresh, wildly grinning, filibustering fool is how many middle aged women and white working class men buy his bologna. Doom is in the air this evening.
A more important question is how many times did the moderatetrix cut off Ryan versus Biden. It was absurd. She continually interrupted and stopped Ryan, but rarely did likewise with Biden. Our group started yelling out loud for her to start treating both candidates equally. And Biden's verbal interruptions were less noticeably offensive than his "Joker"-like smile. The guy is either on medication or needs to be.
The 'attack' plan (which it clearly was) is clear. The 'Rat lies and when the Republican attempts to expose it he rudely cuts him off and then the 'moderator' steps in and stops the response. On to the next lie. That Creepy, Crawley woman on the next debate should be given a blunt open warning that such behavior will be nailed in public right there and there by the Governor.
At the very beginning of the debate when Ryan was discussing the murdering of our men in Libya, Joe Biden was shown falling off his chair laughing. I wondered what the murdered victims families were thinking about Joe's laughter. As Ryan was discussing the threat of Iran building a nuclear bomb there is ol Joe again falling off his chair laughing. I honestly thought there was a good possibility Joe was drunk, his laughter was so inappropriate
Thanks for the head's up, #6. Brilliant to have it out so fast. Of course, it's not that the RNC had to dig for the material. It probably would have been out a bit earlier had they not had so much to choose from.
I suspect that the Biden team hoped Ryan would be deferential to the VP and sho enuf - he was - too much. At some point, Ryan should have (could have would have) said to Raddtaz, excuse me Martha, but it's my turn as we all agreed to this format.
And quite frankly, how the heck does Ryan's family come out on that stage all smiles and shake Biden's hand or his wife's hands?
And speaking of Biden't wife - he had to bring up his first dead wife who was at fault in the car accident - not the other driver.
Oh and Biden is from Scranton, PA - whippee do. A perfect opportunity for Ryan to have said, but Mr. VP - how long have you been in the Senate - 30+ years.
It appears to have been planned, as noted at #9 and #15 .... those interruptions when Ryan was speaking. The leftist moderator cut him off mid-sentence more than one time, while Jihad Joe jumped in 82 times, as Ryan attempted answer a question.
Guess they thought they could destroy his thought process by placing him on the chopping board. It didn't work. Biden and the abetting moderator were shown to be exactly what they are .... rude and classless.
Biden was so fake TV wrestler-like tough, in such plain bad taste, that I thought of turning off the so called debate. Between Biden's 82 interruptions, and that strange woman's interruption of Paul, it was like a staged, bad play. Paul tried to make sense and was cut off so many times before finishing his thoughts that it looked like Joe was coached by Bill, the interrupter, O'Reilly, whose rudeness is his FORMAT ! Biden is a socialist ex senator, who is trying to act strong supporting his error filled, weakling, raging president. One easy summation is that both Obama and Biden are possibly the two most angry, really mad people we've ever had in high office together. We've got to toss them out. Both of them sickeningly played to the poor and downtrodden to soak up votes.
Scenario 2...if I were seated next to Biden on a long flight it wouldn't take 10 minutes and he'd have a drink in his lap...the next one would be in his face, the third who knows, it might have something hard in it. What an obnixious boor!
If facts don't matter, and they rarely do to limousine liberals, then Joe could have, with a stretch, won the debate.
The comment about the security having been cut at that Embassy because of a Ryann was ripe fruit. Ryan could have asked Dolt'n Joe why it was more important to have Chevy Volts and charging stations at the Embassy in Vienna, than armed security at an American Embassy in a radical Islamic country, especially after the Ambassador requested it.
Reminded of the song, Send in the clowns. That is exactly what the dems did, sent in a clown. Dems can spin all the want, people saw it with their own eyes. Scary that Biden is next in line for Prez. No gravitas there.
Isn't it amazing how the Dems can criticize Part D prescription coverage. I am sure Biden voted FOR it. It would not have passed without the Dems. If I were Romney and it comes up again - I would ask Barry if he plans to take it away.
It's clear that Obama/Biden both have contempt for Romney/Ryan. They showed it in different ways during the debates....but in both cases O/B were dismissive of the serious answers R/R were giving. Boy are they going to be taken aback on November 6th....about 90 EST.
Biden stated that "the administration didn't know the dead Ambassador requested more security." Also, they didn't know that there was no protest at the Embassy. They didn't know it was a terrorist attack until intelligence reported these this things weeks later..YET he believes we will KNOW when Iran acquires the ability to deliver nuclear weapons?? s/ The substance of the debate last night was deadly serious to each and every American, our precious troops are being thrown hither, tither and yon..like sacrificial lambs, with no bullets, the order to not shoot even if shot at..and Biden laughs. Is THIS the America you want People?
The tasteless, ill-bred behavior Biden exhibited during the debate was topped by the lip lock and grope he put on Jill "She's So Hot" Biden at debate's end. Just what the world needed to see, the elderly vice president playing tonsil hockey on stage like some dopey teenager with runaway hormones. Disgusting.
I think Paul Ryan(by the look in his eyes) wanted to punch old ignoramus Joe Biden's lights out, but he used good judgment and did the best he could, under adverse comical conditions. Biden and Radatz were on the Obama payroll and they acted accordingly?
It was obvious the moderator was in the tank for Biden. She cut Ryan off and let Biden run on. But, I think it all worked for Ryan's benefit. Ryan handled it perfectly. If the moderator did her job and controlled Biden, he would not have looked so stupid and would have had a better debate and Ryan would have less sympathy. Ryan handled it perfectly. He would not have done well doing what I thought to do, of pouring his glass of water on Biden's head.
Biden got his points across as above poster notes but they were mixed with blatant lies and political overspin as in the 47%.
obama's firm 47% is starting to ditch him in some states so maybe they know that to have a free and providing country we first have to have a country.
The crumbs from the Capitalists table are better here than all the confiscated wealth.
Ask the 47% of whom I am one in poverty and retirement dependency but not his 47% voter (formerly) lock along with the other discriminated against blue collar white guys and the gunnuts and rednecks and even the unemployed of the same IMO.
The stinky old bird Joe, dead duck, or rotten turkey did obama who shot from the lip that he couldn't be prouder 9of has helped obama have a lock or lean on only 10 states. Poetic justice from tangled webs?
Romney should tell Obama to pound sand himself in regards to the next 'moderated ' debate. This was a disgusting travesty and Romney is a sucker to go to the next one. Come to think of it, all Republicans are suckers for engaging in any debates with Democrats and a stacked deck of Democrat 'moderators'.
Just say no, Mitt.
Tell Obama that in light of the complete and utter lack of respect and civility toward a fellow American citizen exhibited by a sitting Vice President of the United States of America, the next two debates are in the can.
'See you in Washington on January 20, 2013 when you take your last walk as President , SUCKA.'
I was in a taxi on the way to pickup my car (by the way never use pepboys..) and the driver was listening to the debate.
I noticed right off how rude Biden was and how the "moderator" was cutting off Paul Ryan. She even re-directed the topic away from Libya to Iran as Ryan was scoring hits.
Today on Rush and Hugh Hewit radio and on websites the talk was about how rude Biden was. As Rush stated today, if Biden had won the debate we would still be hearing about it but the corrupt news people are already changing the subject as they know Biden lost big.
The White House is scoffing at a new study which shows there’s no public record that President Barack Obama ever met with the top official responsible for developing the Obamacare network. But White House spokesman Jay Carney declined today to cite one example where Obama met with Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the Health and Human Services department. Instead, Carney claimed that “she’s here a lot and meets with the president with regular — with regularity.” “It’s safe to say that Kathleen Sebelius has been one of the more frequent visitors to and attendance of meetings with the president,” Carney said,
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
During a segment of The View Thursday morning, host Barbara Walters expressed her concerns over politicians swearing on a Bible upon taking office, noting the importance of “the separation of church and state” as an American value. The comments came up as the View crew discussed Sen. Mark Pryor‘s (D-AR) new political ad apologizing for his Obamacare support as well as insisting that the Bible should be a guiding presence in politics. After playing the ad, actress Jane Seymour told her hosts that “I think it’s really unfortunate when you have to bring religion into politics. I think religion is
Democrats have justifiably rejoiced in the divisions within the Republican Party which hamper its ability to speak with one voice and act with unity of purpose. The tea party faction within the GOP, once an unalloyed good that propelled the party to electoral victory in 2010, has been more of a headache than a boon ever since. The conservative faction of the Grand Old Party is often credited with robbing the party of electoral victories, torpedoing bipartisan legislative deals, and elevating gaffe-prone voices that force the GOP’s moderates to adopt a perpetual defensive crouch. The temptation for Democrats to partake
NEW YORK- The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in when he famously went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold Friday for nearly $1 million - the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000, including the auction house´s fees, for the sunburst-finish guitar, Christie´s said. Dylan´s legendary performance at the festival in Rhode Island 48 years ago marked his rupture with the folk movement´s old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin´ in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone."
In late October, Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to Israel, not a surprising trip for a potential presidential candidate whose pro-Zionist views are well known. However, less widely known is his role in a breakthrough of sorts in academia and U.S.-Israeli relations. The Jerusalem Post reported: Texas A&M University will open a branch in Nazareth by October 2015 . . . The new institution, to be called the Peace Campus, will promote coexistence for the sake of education with a student population combining Arab, Jewish and foreign students. The faculty will be drawn from Arab, Jewish and international scholars. .
Murfreesboro, N.C.- Snow came early to the cotton and sorghum fields here, sending dozens of cash-strapped families to the food bank on a recent afternoon for frozen chickens, cucumbers and canned green beans. Quinetta Rascoe was waiting for them. Wearing a bright pink overcoat, a glittery rainbow scarf and an infectious grin, Rascoe climbed out of a Toyota sedan carrying a stack of Obamacare brochures. She eyed about 60 cars that were snaking into the parking lot behind Murfreesboro Baptist Church, prompting an unusual traffic jam one block off the town´s dozy Main Street. The food truck was late, and
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
