    I got sick of Biden abusing the word "fact". Furthermore, Biden's personality during the debate was like an evil stepfather trying to brainwash.

    That and my friend. Thats the first thing I would have mentioned to him. Joe......now stop. U know we are not friends. No need to lie to the American People. Then waited for him to blink about 5 times in a row and try to play that one off.

    I wonder, though, how many were turned off by his constant condescending smiling at Ryan. I find that disrespectful.
    Did you find it disrespectful when Romney smirked the whole way through the debate with Obama? I like televised debates but do think radio ones are better for the very reason that it allows people to base opinions on what is said or not said instead of focusing on facial and body expressions.

    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    Current Poll count (eliminating anonymous votes) Biden 41 Ryan 28.

    I thought Biden was outstanding; very commanding and you know that should he be forced into taking the top job, he'd be ready and able. Ryan gave the impression that if he got it, he'd gulp and jibber. Like he did a lot last night. I don't think I'm being overly partisan; I thought Romney won the first debate by a clear head.

    Joe Biden was already a good punchline.

    After last night, he will likely be the leading butt-of-jokes all over, and even SNL won't be able to pass on that much fodder.

    Yeah, but more complimentary jokes as a result of these kind of performances. Ryan came over as being way out of his depth.

    Re: Who won the VP Debate?

    When I got home from class I watched the whole debate beginning to end.

    This is the vibe I got from reading the board during class: Biden is destroying Ryan.

    This is the vibe I got after watching it all myself:
    Biden was being a complete douche. I see people trying to spin this all different ways ("oh he was being aggressive", "oh he just knows so much more than Ryan" blah blah blah) but he interrupted his opponent 82 times? You'd think the man who (originally ran for president himself, and now is vice president) would have a little self control. The laughing, the outburst, the starkyness, was ridiculous, and childish in my opinion. If I were Ryan it would probably have taken every ounce of my will power to not hit him right in the face.

    Ryan was a vague at times, I know why he did it, but I didn't like it. Anything he says, particularly if it is wrong or "doesn't come out right" is just going to get thrown in Romney's face during the next debate so he has to be careful what he says. It would be dishonest to say he was vague the whole time, as I remember several instances were he got quite specific on national defense and economy.

    In all I saw them make about an equal number of good exchanges, and both had areas where they did not do as well.

    If someone wanted to call this one a draw I could see that.

    Yeah, but you all hate Ryan a lot more than Romney.

    I predict you will believe Obama to be the winner of the next 2 debates.
