    Biden took the whole petulance thing way too far. That's what the focus groups are saying. Without all the smirking and interrupting, etc., he might have prevailed. Otherwise, as we move forward, Biden's petulence will be the story line. That's a loss.
    It's not a loss when Ryan lost on the issues and proved to be too scared to answer questions.

    In some cases...Biden IS rather good at making himself look like an idiot, through gaffes and other things.

    Answering questions is not the only way to win a debate.

    Didn't watch it, but I'm glad to hear that Biden fact-smacked Ryan's unsubstantiated bull****. I imagine it would be hard to not be condescending towards a slick con-man running on empty nonsense.

    "Obama sucks! Vote for us instead! We'll spend more, tax less and cut middle class spending, but it will somehow balance the budget, improve the economy and give free unicorns to everyone!" is not credible and deserves any condescension Biden gave it.

    I felt like Biden was looking a Ryan with a Holier than Thou sort of attitude. It seemed to me that through Biden's eyes, any utterance of any word coming from Romney or Ryan was blasphemous and if not for the audience(s) Biden wouldn't have even paid any attention to Ryan; like an ant under foot.

    This is unbecoming a both a politician and a person.
