Biden’s Mission Impossible: Stop
Obama Freefall With Ryan Debate

Daily Beast, by David Freedlander

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/10/2012 6:00:14 AM

A few months ago, Thursday’s vice-presidential debate between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden had all the anticipation of a Meet the Press face-off between James Carville and Mary Matalin: high-profile surrogates to the campaign slinging mud and talking points with little chance of shifting an election whose results seemed increasingly clear. But a bumbling President Obama at last week’s debate has breathed new life into the Romney campaign and turned the Ryan-Biden debate into Slugfest, Part II. “The vice-presidential debate can stop the freefall of the incumbent,” said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Center

Of course Freelander found old Ryan opponents who gave him the line dejour: "Ryan lies"!

Let BiteMe Biden explain how our Ambassador got killed - no demonstrations, no movie.

Get the popcorn, folks.

Ryan should hammer him upside his head from every direction.

Biden wasn't picked by Obambi because he could be president but because he was a party hack that had the right amount of yes man in him. Party hack and yes man are not stellar qualifications for saving Obambi's behind.

The VP debate won't save him; how many average voters will even watch it? After the clock cleaning Obama got at the first debate, lots of people are just done.

Lots of us watching this one will just be political junkies hoping to enjoy another "Stand up, Chuck" moment. We already know who we're voting for.

My hope is that Plugs comes out over-confident, angry and "loaded for bear," not the congenial clown we're used to. I hope he starts right in calling Paul Ryan a liar, because if he does, Ryan won't have any option but to set him straight, as only Ryan can. BiteMe's mouth has been effectively duct taped for a week, and he's got lots to say; a volcano ready to erupt. He always has lots to say --most of it buffoonery.

I'm praying that's the way it goes.

Biden was picked for VP to get him out of the Senate. Biden assumed for years that he would be the next SoS in a Dem administration, but that spot would have to be given to Hillary to keep her and her husband from sniping at Obama for four years after an election defeat. Biden couldn't also be carping from the Senate, so he was put on the back of the ticket to keep him where he couldn't do much harm.

obama fell flat last week vs. Romney for a variety of reasons, not a small on is because obama has years of drug abuse behind him. Romney still has all of his brain cells.

Debate Biden/Ryan will be similar. Ole Joe is a famous alcohol abuser. His gaffes are legendary. Bordering on 70 will not help him either.

Gonna be a good show.

Biden will be on fire out of the box. He'll do his Obama's dead, GM is alive... He'll also talk about the place where he goes for breakfast in Delaware every week - that closed 7 years ago. Guess what Joe - Delaware doesn't want you back when you lose.

PS - Ryan should hammer him for "renting" space at his Delaware home to the Secret Service at a high rental rate. One would think that you would be happy to have your property protected and would not make money off your Secret Service detail! (especially during a trillion dollar deficit year!)

The danger of the debates for Obama, is that even moderated by activist Democrat reporters, they cut past the media and allow the Romney team to speak directly to the voters.

Obama and Biden have a lot of splain'n to do.

The search for debris from missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has not turned up any evidence of a crash, but it has trained the world’s gaze on thousands of pieces of junk floating on the ocean’s surface. Much of that debris could be made up of plastics, old appliances or parts of homes that have washed away from fragile communities, and cargo containers from ships, according to ocean advocacy group One World One Ocean.

The news media were ecstatic when the government said in January that the economy grew by 3.2 percent in the final three months of 2013. It was convincing proof, they said on the nightly news, that the economy had finally recovered from its chronic lethargy. However, according to a revised estimate released Thursday by the U.S. Commerce Department´s Bureau of Economic Analysis, that 3.2 percent figure was a wild exaggeration. The U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest measure of our country’s entire economic output, grew no more than 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter — a pitifully low growth rate for

The former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, John Sandweg, published an op-ed this week calling, in effect, for the abolition of immigration law. Sandweg, a criminal defense attorney and Arizona crony of Janet Napolitano, wrote in relation to President Obama’s directive that ICE reexamine enforcement policies with an eye toward making them more “humane.” To that end, he says ICE “should eliminate ‘non-criminal re-entrants and immigration fugitives’ as a priority category for deportation.” What that means is that people who have been formally deported and then sneak back in should be exempted from further attempts at removing them, even though

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In any organization as large as the United States government, some things are bound to slip through the cracks. But how about an entire building? How about tens of thousands of buildings - all sitting empty at taxpayer expense. No one has been coming to work in the USDA Cotton Annex building for some time. Just blocks from the White House, it´s been vacant for six years. It´s one of 77,000 empty buildings the government continues to own and maintain, costing taxpayers $1.5 billion a year in electric bills, roof repairs, and other monthly costs.

People are always complaining that there´s nothing but bad news out there, but they´re wrong. Market researchers estimate that U.S. chewing gum sales have fallen 11% in the past four years and that the slide will keep on going. I can think of nothing more inspiring in recent history. Having worked for four summers in a bubble-gum factory while in college—and having never once thought about touching a stick of gum again—I can visualize no substance more disgusting, no habit more repellent, no entity more antithetical to basic human dignity than chewing gum. The reports that sales are plummeting speak volumes about

No meat at ‘Noah’ party

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

The death of Jeremiah Denton, coming amid a vast American retreat overseas, is being marked this afternoon by hundreds of thousands who are watching the video taken of him when he was a captive of the North Vietnamese communists. It is one of the most astonishing film clips in American history. Denton, then a commander in the United States Navy, had been shot down in Vietnam on July 18, 1965, and thrown into a communist dungeon. The following May, the Communists tried to use him in a propaganda exercise, and arranged for him to be interviewed on camera by a

A heavy-hitting death penalty expert recently assigned to accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s all-star defense team threw an uppercut at prosecutors yesterday, requesting any evidence that may save his client’s life — including information to support their claim the FBI asked older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev to be an informant. Attorney David Bruck asked for documents showing FBI contacts with ?Tamerlan Tsarnaev. As part of the 22-page motion, Bruck pointed to a Feb. 28 letter in which defense attorneys alleged the government asked the now-deceased older brother to be an informant. “The FBI … asked him to be an informant, reporting on

Happy birthday Wrigley Field, but are you too beautiful of a ballpark? After all, attendance at games is more sensitive to beer prices—much more—than it is to the Cubs’ record. Wrigley Field, the dead-ball-era ballpark wedged into perhaps Chicago’s hippest north-side neighborhood, turns 100 this April. With its ivy-shrouded walls, manually operated scoreboard, and concrete-and-steel edifice, it survives as a monument to architectural beauty and athletic ineptitude. The Chicago Cubs, those loveable losers of the National League, have called the friendly confines of Wrigley home for the past 98 years, and not once in that time have they won the World

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.
