Vice President Joe Biden was very emotional and snarky with out-of-control smirking at the nationally-televised debate against GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan, which was moderated by an ABC News reporter who attended President Barack Obama's wedding.
Despite such a friendly arrangement for Biden, the vice president couldn't help but get overly-emotional and even used his favorite word, "malarky," while laughing when trying to defend Obama's foreign policy record.

Way to go Joe..
It's about time these guys got some of their nonsense tossed back in their face, and I think it was prudent that you took the role of 'corrector in chief' rather than the President this time.
Nice work buddy, thanks for fighting the good fight.

What a bloviating, obnoxious, rude idiot!
He (biden) didn;t want a discussion; he wanted to be playground bully.
America deserves real discussion, and real ideas.

Biden was the consumate statesman who showed the evil-doer that he laughs in the face of lies and pretext. Mularky is much too kind for the likes of greasy looking creeps who not tell the truth, unless it happens to fit their pretextual fairy tales. If you believe that Republicans are anything other than bag-men for corporate theives and banksters; then, the check is in the mail. Or should I say, the service charge for the pleasure of holding your money and paying you no interest. See how far that takes you in retirement.Suckers.

So, let’s use the boxing metaphor. Biden danced circles around Ryan. Certainly Ryan got a few punches in, but they simply did not have a lasting impact. It was a very good performance by Biden. He got the “47%” in; he made Ryan look like a hypocrite when he mentioned Ryan’s letter requesting Stimulus funds. The list goes on and on.
Did Biden interrupt too much? As someone who never likes someone interrupting me, it is not my favorite tactic. But after Romney’s display last week, what’s good for the goose…
I found the exchange on Iran and Syria interesting on different levels. First, we are reminded that we are dealing with an election over who directs the empire, not over whether there is an empire. Second, Biden kept pushing Ryan on whether Romney/Ryan are really talking about war. Biden knows full well that, with the exception of the neo-cons and some Netanyahu fanatics, there is very little interest in starting yet another war in the Middle East.
Two more rounds to go. But the biggest factor on November 6th will be the Get Out The Vote operations of both sides.
I want to see Romney/Ryan defeated just to wipe the smugness off of their faces.

First, did you know that Joe Biden's son is a lobbiest for the Jesuits in Washington DC, they pay him at least $80,000 per year. Second, Big Bird and Oscar would be a better team than the two parties running.
