VP Debate Notes

I enjoyed this one much more than the first Presidential debate. Much more lively. Here are the notes I jotted down during the debate:

- Biden kept having Bill Cosby's confused/lost look during the beginning part of the debate.

- Ryan was calm, cool and collected throughout the whole debate... but didn't answer the question. Actually niether really answered the questions.

-WTF is that hag moderator? Does she know what it means to "moderate"?

- Biden smiles and laughs when Ryan zings him (or Obama).  And "Bebe" Netanyahu? Bebe?? Really?? How disrespectful...

- Biden doesn't think Iran's a threat, really? Has he not been paying attention? "Having the world behind us matters". Of course they are behind us, when we are leading. But having them agree with all of our choices isn't plausible.

-"The president doesn't bluff". HAHAHAHAHA

- Ugh! NOBODY answers the questions!!!

-Yawn. Wealth envy. No don't "level the playing field". Leave my money alone, you fiscal vampire! I pay my fair share enough already!

- Ooo, Biden's going to come off looking bad with all of his facial expressions and laughing.

- "Sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way" - NICE zinger! Go Ryan!

- Letting the auto industry go bankrupt doesn't mean you don't care about it. Good try, Biden.

-The debt occurred on BOTH of your watches. Quit blaming each other and take responsibility. What has been done can't be changed, let's work towards fixing it. How are we going to fix it?

-Ryan asked for stimulus two times and is saying right now that the stimulus was bad. Booo, Ryan.

- Biden, Medicare is NOT a guarantee. Like social security, it's going to run out if we don't do something.

-Mod: "Something tells me I won't get a simple answer". haha Dayum!

-Liked Ryan's answer on taxes - "Watch out middle class - you are next". True, true.

-What an asshole. Quit interrupting, Biden. And nice "moderator" - you are supposed to be impartial!

-It's a debate, not an argument, boys!

-What's with this "friend" business from Biden??

-Biden scoffing at "Republicans working with others". Asshole, like you work well with others.

-"They do not need it. We can't afford it". It's their money. Period.

-Did Biden just flip off Ryan? Just pointed at him with his middle finger...

-"Moderator" wouldn't let Ryan respond. Whose side are you on?!?!

-Talk 'personally' about abortion? They're DUDES! They have no personal stories about abortion...

-Closing statements:
                  Biden blames Bush. Surprise. Enough of this "level the playing field" BS. The individual needs to level the playing field for themselves. Everyone is playing a different game. It's not the government's job to "level the playing field".

                  Good for you, Ryan, for thanking Biden. Very nice and classy. "Will not blame others" =)

Overall, Ryan was on the defensive, but I think he held his own and stayed quite cool. Biden lacked style and kept interrupting/laughing. It was very distracting. In any case, MUCH more interesting than the Presidential debate. Wish they'd be more of a debate format than a town-hall chat.
