Even Biden did it when he debated Palin. And so on. The aggressive Democrats are MUCH rarer than aggressive Republicans.

    But, if I recall correctly, people have criticized Clinton for being "too" aggressive as well which is why he's known as an arrogant jerk, particularly by many on the right so my point holds for him as well.

    You are right on the rare loud boisteorus type of aggressiveness. But now as to the underhanded back handed sneakiness. Well we will just have to disagree on that one.

    And your Romney / Biden comparison is way off. Romney was assertive, but respectful. Biden was condescending and border line rabid.

    Nah, Romney could have easily been classified as disrespectful.

    And sure, there are double standards that benefit Democrats over Republicans - see how the public reacts to each groups comments on race. However, in this case, the double standard benefits Republicans.

    And as I've said before, I find it hilarious that people think Biden was disrespectful for laughing, but say nothing about disrespectful it was for Ryan to lie, deflect and otherwise insult the intelligence of Americans.

    I don't think Biden "blew it" per se. His team leader needed a clear win here, and there was no clear winner. In fact, Biden may have been judged the clear winner were it not for his behavior. And btw, this is typical behavior for him. Last election cycle I watched quite a lot of Biden's home visits (small fund raising venues hosted by supporters) and he was every bit as arrogant.

    I liked this for your comment about listening on the radio. I get most of my news through radio (not talk shows), WBBM Chicago, since I find it more fair and less snarky. I actually didn't notice Romney smirking and don't remember discussions on the board about it, but if you say so, I'll take you at your word. Howsomever (Ha!). There's a difference between smirking and throwing your head back, laughing and rolling your eyes. No?

    Never in the history of the President and VP debates has there been one remotely close to this level of disrespect and buffoonery. Joe will reap what he sows, but he is way out there now, and will have to own this.

    I think you now the poster is nonsensical on this one Maggie .... Romney was enormously respectful. There is no comparison.

    If Biden's style were successful, then all of our debates would be such as this. That they are not, and that such has never been well-received in the past, only further isolates Biden. Biden won no hearts. Ryan did. For what a VP debate is worth.

    Ryan won hearts? That guy was a moron of the highest level. Not that Biden was any better. Ryan could only say the same damned thing over and over and over again. The only thing these two did was bicker back and forth like jr. high idiots. The both of them.

    Nah, you're just not used to seeing a level playing field. The Republicans are walking away with these debates and you people don't know how to deal with it.

    I'm certain you find anything "hilarious" when your back is against the wall. Biden did too. I'm sure your entire party is just ROTFLIAO.
