Excallent debate.  Riveting.  Ryan stumbled badly.  Biden out-dueled him.  Biden’s facial expressions were a knock on his performance.

Why would Ryan bring up the “human side” of Romney, using auto accident victims as an example.  Did he not remember the tragedy an auto accident played in the life of Biden?  Ryan tried to attack Biden on the stimulus.  Biden came right back with the fact of holding two letters from Ryan asking for some of those funds for pork projects in his home district. 

Not nearly as good a night for the Republicans as was the first Presidential debate.  But, the VP candidate usually doesn’t make or break an election.  Will be interesting to see if the President catches some of the Biden “fire” in the remaining debates.

Biden def. had a lot of fire in him. At points I thought he was too vocal but he had to be the one to show the passion, which he did.

Ryan looked like a little kid at prom.

Fun to watch and cant wait for the next one.

biden acted his part.  ryan as well.  most thought it was a draw.  independents were appalled by the veep’s abnormal behavior.  conservatives were ticked.  liberals, well, you can read the posts above for their golf claps.  in the grand scheme, it won’t matter a twit, as has been the case for all vp debates historically.
