What did you think about the VP Debate? Who won? What was your favorite moment?
As the candidates segued to domestic issues, Biden went after the Romney/Ryan ticket for being on the side of fat cats. "They continue to put the interest of millionaires and billionaires ... ahead of the military and middle class," Biden said.
In response--and attempting to defend Romney's controversial 47 percent remark--Ryan said (to laughter), "I think the vice president knows, sometimes the words don't always come out of your mouth the way you want."
"But I always say what I mean," Biden retorted with a grin.
The vice president did seem to say what he meant for much of the debate, even looking straight at the camera and addressing viewers directly.

I'm not going to argue about who said what, or substance. To be honest, everything's about spin anyway on both sides. Shortly this thread will be joined by those left leaning posters who can run circles around me politically. Arguing numbers/percentages. Linking web sites....
On a purely nursing level, I found the behavior of the vice-president to be labile. Very labile. If I'd observed it in a 48 hr old pre-menopausal woman, or a 17 yr old boy, it might not put a beep on my radar.
But on the Vice-president of the US?
I told my husband, he was either off his meds, or he needed some meds.
I'm not so entrenched in my beliefs that I can't be fair. I felt during the whole thing that Biden won. I felt Ryan did well.
But then the win was uglied up by the uncontrollable mirth, in a situation that did not warrant that response.
I couldn't get past the number two guy in our country giggling like a girl.
Lefties are saying he couldn't control himself, because his opponent's rhetoric was so absurd.
A 40 yr politician couldn't control his demeanor???
I have a question. Last week when the president bombed his debate, I don't remember seeing a prominent thread concerning that issue.
Today, Joe V, administrator posts a thead. Joe Biden did well.
Is there a connection?
