If the late Rodney Dangerfield had done a candidate debate, I think it would
have been very much like the Biden performance.Do we really want someone
like that a heartbeat away from the presidency?
Funny how two different people can watch the same event and come away with
different opininons on who the jerk was and what were lies. Glad and thankful
I live in a country where we all don't have to get bullied into falling in
line with the blowhards that were on stage last night or the people who pepper
Don't ya just love how Republicans can dish it out, but when the tables are
turned, they have never been able to take it.
Rationalizing that the debates aren't watched that much by people is an
excuse. Debates are important, even if no one watches them. They document what
the President, the most powerful one person, does or believes and practices for
our next 4 years.Not everyone goes to the polling place or votes,
either. Does that make it any less important?We have obligations
are citizens of the United States of America. When people go through the
process to become a citizen, besides taking an oath, they go to classes.In school, we go to civics classes to learn about our country. That
doesn't mean we learned what we need to for life, but it means we passed
the course in order to graduate.People don't take our
country's process seriously, either.We go to sports events and
pay very high prices to go to movies, with neither in reality of life. Debates show the character of the person we are voting for in a
stressful situation. It is unfortunate that the VP did not show cordiality to
his opponent. It is not a football game where you beat the other person up with
actions, demeanor and incivility.
What a disgraceful display by Joe Biden and team Obama. This planned "side
show" complete with smirks, laughing, over-talking and lies was supposed to
"get back" at the GOP for Obama's pitiful performance but what it
ended up doing was to disgust Americans across this country and show - once and
for all - what a shallow and detached bunch the far left is in this country.
Americans are not impressed by a fake side show - most see through the
programmed and practiced bar room brawler performance by uncle Joe and instead
wonder how in the world we allowed this rabble to get into the White House in
the first place. If someone were to treat you like Biden treated Ryan you would
simply call the guy a big jerk and walk away. The best line I heard after the
debate said "debating Biden was like getting trapped in a bar for a couple
hours beside a blow hard drunk". Obama and Biden appeal to the worst of his
country. Finally - Biden had the LIE meter lighting up all night long from his
lies about the Embassy attack to the disappearing 700 billion from medicare.
DISGUSTING!!! NOT SURPRISING.
