    This is news? There was nothing in this piece remotely interesting.

    It could have been a great debate. Biden surprised me and did better than I thought he would. However, he was very rude, disruptive and talked over Ryan the whole time. The moderator did little to stop Bidens rampage (which is predictable). Ryan was polite, allowed biden to speak and get his points across, something biden wouldn't reciprocate.

    I think biden was trying to be Mitt Romney. The trouble is, Mitt would make his point and allow his opponent to speak, and then counter. Barack did the same thing. Ryan also did the same thing and asked biden several times to stop interrupting (something agreed to before the debate). This isn't biden taking control. It was biden being out of control. Makes you wonder if this is how he treates everyone. Is this how he talks to foreign leaders? No wonder this regime won't work with Republican, they can't stop long enough to hear the other side speak. I DO NOT want my representative, representing me in this fashion. It's rude, condescending, counter productive and biden pointing his finger at the moderator and calling Congressman Ryan "friend" is beneath the office that he holds.

    Biden's incessant cackle while Ryan was speaking was condescending, dismissive, and extremely juvenile. But what would you expect from a seasoned politician of 40 years, bent on his mission to discredit the challenger.
