Krauthammer: Biden’s ‘disrespectful,’
‘hugely condescending’ demeanor
undid potential debate win

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/12/2012 12:29:16 AM

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said after Thursday night’s debate that Vice President Joe Biden’s demeanor cost him a potential debate win over Republican Rep. Paul Ryan. “If you read the transcript, I think it’s dead even,” Krauthammer said. ”If you heard it on radio, Biden won. If you watched on television, he lost. In the transcript, if you just look at the raw arguments I think it was even because each side had points to make and made them. I think on balance, not one side was stronger than another.” (Snip) “He did a lot of interrupting as well.

Comments:
Biden outright lied (about a lot of things) but especially that 0bama wasn't compelling any religion to act in a way that was conflicting with their beliefs. As Ryan pointed out, why the lawsuits then over constitutional rights? I'm afraid I usually rank arguments such as this on debating points more than appearance and so give Biden no bonus for being forceful or bullying. Thus Ryan would have won on the radio to me too as well as on television. I might have to look at the transcripts because a couple of times when Biden was speaking I wrote down

History repeats itself. See the VP Nixon and Premier Krushchev "Kitchen Debate" of July 1, 1959. The only difference being, Krushchev couldn't interrupt because he had had to work through an interpreter. VP Joe has the same populist, over-the-top demeanaor of Krushchev. As I've said before, the Democrats are clearly going for the stupid vote.

Ole Joe had the Alinsky tactic of ridicule down pat to the point of total embarrassment for those who could stand to watch. I doubt he thinks he was the total failure he is.

One has to ask, why is Joe Biden so angry? 1, Biden hates America first. 2. Biden blames America first. 3. Biden thinks he's God--only cleaner and more articulate. (Tie his hands behind him and he'll be silent.)

#26 - my guess as to why Biden was selected by Obama is that Biden can prove where Obama was born and the appointment to veep was a bribe to keep quiet.

#101 you complain about Biden trying to get a word in - you can blame the moderator for that issue. Biden continually cut into Ryan's time to speak - 82 times. Biden was acting in the role of a bully. Biden is the very definition of a politician - in the worst sense. He is an example of why so many people are completely turned off by politics. Among many others, I like what #26 had to say. We don't hear from Sagman very often.

Sorry for the 2nd post, but it dawned on me, if the debate were 90 minutes long, and Biden had 45 minutes and Ryan had 45 minutes, then for Biden to interrupt 82 times, he would be interrupting Ryan about every 30 seconds.

If that is the way the Senate works, no wonder they don't get anything done. There is no way one can express an idea more complicated than to propose a place for dinner.

Biden reminded me of an aspiring actor in an actor's workshop with the "director" telling him, "Give me you biggest smile! OK, now look befuddled! Laugh and look condescending at the same time! That's it! Ok, now give me amazement! No, more of an 'I can't believe you just said that' look!, but with a big smile, like you know something they don't! YES, perfect, Joey Baby! You're gonna be a star!"

Gritting my teeth, I watched the whole thing. I was so angry at Biden's behavior. My hubby got up after about 15 min. to go play computer solitaire. He was smarter than I was.

I must say, I was very proud of Ryan. He conducted himself admirably. Independents, as well as women, watching saw a stark difference between an old political hack and a rising star.

What was Axelgrease actually DOING in that debate prep??? He wound Bite-me up way too tight. He might have broken him, in fact. I think he used some fear and intimidation on the VP. Good thing for Joey there's no second VP debate... Axelgrease might have water boarded him into the desired performance on that one.

I turned on the TV to the debate, but did not actually watch it. I turned on the computer instead, and listened to the 'debate' in the background.

Krauthammer is wrong if he thinks Biden sounded good on the radio. The 'debate' followed a pattern.

Ryan spoke for a few seconds, Biden interrupted, Ryan spoke for another 10 seconds, the moderator interrupts for a tangential question, Ryan tries to speak for that, Biden interrupts again, Ryan spoke some more, and finally the moderator asks a different question.

After a while, I looked up and then saw Biden's facial contortions. Ick.

The debate gave zero content, and wasn't really a debate. Kind of how we do not have a real president. Romney better be prepared to speak in 10 second sound bites since that is all the time he will get before he gets interrupted.

Biden and the moderator were awlful. After a while I was visualizing Biden and the moderator as screeching chimps, and Ryan was debating them.

Ryan did not have a great debate, but given what he had to contend with its no surprise. I'm not sure how he could have prepared for it. Hopefully this helps Romney prepare for the next debate.

Joe Biden is a liberal Democrat populist demagogue who has been a Washington, DC politician for about forty years. He has had a long time to get his act together. Ronald Reagan recognized Biden for what he was, away back in the 1980's saying that Biden was smooth, but a 100% demagogue. Biden certainly has not changed.

Dr. K had the best take on the impact of this.Trouble getting on with server crash. I had typed this, couldn't post it, and then heard Rush with the same take. This is for the "record":

Last night, Joe Biden came across as a programmed Democrat shill, rather than VPOTUS. We're used to these tactics on those "fair and balanced" debates on FNC and other news outlets. The Dem shill bullies, filibusters, interupts, slips in "untruths" (aka lies), and talks over the conservative "victim" so as not to allow a proper response. The shill is cocky, arrogant, and oh, so self-assured. Civility be damned.

Those of us who have attempted to debate Dem "believers" have personally experienced this tactic. Ryan showed much more self-control under this barrage than most of us would.

In the end under those circumstances, he who keeps his cool - wins.

Ryan kept his cool.

He left several rebuttal points unused, to be sure. One that jumped out at me and that I haven't heard from the pundits was Biden's claim that Iran is still far from a nuclear weapon because they have no bomb housing in place. First, he provided no backup of that. News reports indicate that Iran is simultaneously developing missles and detonators to be ready when the fissile material is. Second, Bibi pointed out in his UN presentation that getting to 90% enrichment is the hard part and was more visible due to the number of centrifuges required. Building the rest of the bomb can be done in a small, undetectable, laboratory in short order once the nuclear material becomes available.

Yes, Paul left this and other points on the table, but he kept his cool.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
