    Default Hey Governor Romney: Call It Off!!

    With the recent seeming turnaround in the polls, I wonder if it would be a good idea..............




    Probably no need to finish this thought.

    I'm guessing that we're back to square one, after last night.

    Why would we back at square one again. Ryan did a great job in the debate and I believe he gave off a better more confident image. Biden did fine also but he was very unprofessional and I think that lost him the debate, each of the candidates, had command of the issues, biden was strong on foreign policy but Ryan held his own and then I thought Ryan got the better of the debate on economic issues. Ryan spoke more clearly while Biden fumbled over his words. So I dont think that we are back to square one at all, Biden rallied the base and Ryan not only rallied the base also did not held the momentum gained from the Presidential debate.

    But Biden did look pompous and arrogant and I think it came off badly, he was snarky and dismissive. If this was a judged debate in a class I think Ryan won and I think he won anyway because people are rubbed the wrong way by a guy who simply interrupts constantly, they dont think its correct debate edicate, which its not and they assume he is doing it because he has something to hide or is not really strong on the issue so he has to cause havoc.

    Dismissive, smug, and arrogant were words that used to be applied to GWB, now I think we can freely apply them to Biden. Unbelievablly arrogant attitude, really off-putting and distracting. I can't imagine working with someone like that, what a d-bag.

    Democrats LOVE Biden, including myself. I truly have never been so impressed with him than I was last night. Not afraid to talk about more liberal issues, and not afraid to say what needs to be done to begin righting the ship.

    In all honesty, Ryan looked like he was completely out of his league last night by a 40 year veteran who mopped the floor with him. Quoting Bill Maher last night from twitter, "Someone call 9-11. An old man is beating up a young boy on tv."

    I think you are completely wrong and I know that you and I are both looking through a jaded lense, but every poll I saw or focus group I saw said the exact opposite of what you are saying, the cnn focus group was split evenly and nearly all of the panelist thought that Biden and Ryan both did well but Ryan won based on his demeanor. When you are the Vice President you need to act a little more professional. I enjoyed the debate and the passion, from both sides. I hated it when Biden constently interutpted every single time Ryan spoke and then to cry just like Obama did about time to speak, then come to find out at the end of the debate Biden spoke more. He looked like he was in a bar room debate not a vice presidential one.

    Yes, I have a jaded lens, but I'll also admit defeat or a good performance when I see one (note my comments about the Obama and Willard Mitt Romney debate). With that said, Ryan got called on numerous lies or distortions, and Biden just sat an shot fact after fact at him. As I said last night, I'm not sure that I've ever seen a better, more factual debate given by anoyone than that.

    I also suspect that republicans felt that Biden had the edge too, simply because AM radio was hooting and hollering for two weeks straight in victory after the Presidential debate, but spent ALL DAY today screaming and yowling about Biden. I interpreted that as he got the best of Ryan and they were enraged over it.

    The other thing is this: Obama was "unprofessional" by his calm, non confrontational demanor, and Biden was "unprofessional" by his confrontational demanor. I think that tells us something too.

    Biden acted exactly as VP is supposed to act in a debate, he is supposed to be the attack dog and do the dirty work of tearing down your opponent. No one makes their pressidential decision based on the VP. Although Palin might have cost McCain a few votes.

    I could not disagree more. Biden in no way acted like anyone should in a debate. He acted like an ass.
