Joe McBiden debates Paul Ryan

Buffoonish Biden chortles, smirks at Ryan throughout vice presidential debate; drops 4 points

Let it never be said Seeing Red AZ doesn’t ferret out and focus on the crucial issues for our readers. But by the fourth or fifth time Joe Biden used the unctuous and insincere term “My friend”  — made especially distasteful in its overuse by John McCain — we decided to go through the transcript of the vice presidential debate and count them.

Sure enough. Sprinkled liberally among the openly disrespectful smirks, contemptuous laughter, mugging, eye rolling, rude asides, guffaws and cheesy grins were 17 “my friend(s).”  (Click on link for a video sampling.)

Our meticulous count was nearly thrown off by Vice President Joe Biden’s derisive assessments of “malarkey,” “loose talk,” and “bluster,” which he hurled at the far too respectful and deferential Congressman Paul Ryan.  Additionally, Biden, hogging the time allotments, interrupted Ryan a stunning 82 times during the debate.

Conclusions drawn by the mixed political group watching the debate last night were:

1. People don’t end up voting for Number Two on the ticket. 

2. John McCain must have been on Biden’s coaching team.

3. Paul Ryan, nearly 30 years younger than Joe Biden, was the only adult participant.

In the end, the boorish antics didn’t help Biden. A CNN poll taken after the debate gave the advantage to Paul Ryan with 48 to Biden’s 44 percent.

    Made me nauseated that the term “Friend” was used so many times. But remember, John McLiar is no conservative, did he not cry on the floor of the Senate on how much he is going to miss the horrid Liberal Russ Feingold? Did he cry for Brian Terry or any of our soldeirs killed in either war, or did he cry for the 3,000 victims of 911?

    I liked the debate, it showed what a biased Moderator can do how hard she tried to let Biden win. I want to know if Paul Ryan’s voice is that low or was it his Mic that Joe could speak over him? I also want the Commission to change and get new members including the conservative members. Alan Simpson is no stand up guy, he was the comedian of the Senate now he is still laughing, Oh just like Joe.

    Raddatz was very clever in concealing her biases.

    She did her dirty work by letting Biden interrupt Ryan at the very moments he was about to deliver his punch lines.

    I’d love to see a montage of those interruptions.

      Right you are, garvan! Those interruptions that Martha Raddatz repeatedly allowed were as much a distraction as Joe Biden’s clownish antics. Paul Ryan was never allowed to finish a thought and although Biden childishly whined about not being given enough time, he actually had nearly two minutes longer than Ryan during the course of the debate. How could Raddatz be objective when she has had a longtime, personal friendship with Obama? He attended her first wedding and gave her former husband a plum position as head the Federal Communications Commission. There is no honor among thieves. Especially Democrat ones.

    Of course Obama was pleased with Biden’s performance. As rude and ineffecitive as it was, it beat Obama’s lackluster appearance in the first debate by ten miles. I hope Independents are taking note.

    Meanwhile a U.S. Embassy employee is killed in Yemen and the Middle East continues to seeth. Yuck it, Biden.

      Right on, Patriot Mom!!
      No wonder his boss the great orator and articulate Obama, is happy with his rude underling’s debate performance. IT has become the subject of conversation, taking the heat off of Obama and his dismal record.
