RNC: Biden interrupted
Ryan 82 times

Washington Examiner [DC], by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2012 12:04:24 AM

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”

All that was missing in Biden's performance was him throwing his feces at Ryan. It was like a flashback to the opening scene with the apes in ''2001 - A Space Odyssey. ''

Notice how Biden talks down to everyone, as if he's granting their stupidity an audience with a savant? And that smirking grin is so annoying.

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.

Drudge has a link to an RNC video (The Laughter) showing Biden laughing as Ryan is speaking about the economy, Libya, military, etc.

"Vice President Biden is laughing," the video text at the end of the ad reads, "are you?"

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

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.

Biden was disciplined in that he always brought up democrat talking points. I marveled at how he was able to bring up the 47% in almost every one of his answers, usually two and three times.

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.

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.

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?

Biden sent the clear message to the Afghans that they are on their own and will be killed come 2014.

Libya will continue on the news because Biden lied: they did not send the reinforcements requested.

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.

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 Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
