    Yea, I would say it was a tie. Joe did better then everyone expected, but he looked a little bit like a belligerent prick.

    Ryan knew his stuff, but I think he was a little stiff. Romney plays the emotions well, Ryan not so much.

    The Catholic/Abortion issue..feehh I don't think Ryan played it too bad. Its up to the states, and the Democrats/obamacare are coming down on Catholic healthcare. Trust me I didn't cringe like I do with the old Christian Taliban candidates like Santorium and Bachmann.

    One funny thing that was just mentioned online...during the debateRyan stole Biden's water glass and took a sip.

    Jeez...ABC post coverage is very slanted left :upeyes:

    Biden was a loud laughing clown, unable to follow the math.

    Hey Hussell, you've been gone from GT for months.
    Did you find a new babysitting gig yet?

    A lot of spin about Biden's debate style. Overtly aggressive, condescending, and "…too much Red Bull."

    Pretty even, from a literal perspective, but image can be everything.

    Overall, I'd call it even. Both seemed to be talking to their perspective base. I don't see many votes being swayed tonight.

    Thank God for Libertarians. These 2 candidates make me happy that there is a 3rd choice.

    there isn't other choices, Romney or Obobo Will be President, and a failed republican pretending to be a Libertarian and polling at half a percent is not a contender.

    Biden led thru most of the debate. But for the last 10 or 15 minutes I really began to wonder if he was having a medical problem. It was like he was drained of energy, he actually hemmed and hawed. Ryan was unprepared for the rude clown tactics and it showed.

    I noticed that about Biden. His voice fell into that of a 30 year smoker or something.

    Ryan or Biden is like a coin toss with a two tailed coin.

    The moderator failed miserably to be fair, but helped the democrat debate... I give her a failing grade at doing what she was supposed to do... It seemed very biased to me, and all biden's tactics were just as slimy as I expect from everything that he's about and the moderator did little to nothing in regard to keeping it straight for Ryan's behalf...

    Interruptions:

    Biden = 96
    Ryan = 6

    Great job moderator. How many pointed follow up questions did the "moderator" ask Biden compared to Ryan?

    As a financial guy, there is one thing that has ticked me off in debate #1 and #2. Why do Romney/Ryan let the other side get away with the phrase "let Detroit go bankrupt" without clarification.

    I understand the term bankrupt means bad things to the common man. However, at the mega-corporation level, the only significant difference between a corporate bankruptcy filing and a government bailout is ...under organized bankruptcy, unions lose power. Otherwise, the business reorganized its finanance, amend debt covenants, restructures management and sheds some debt. The real losers are the common stockholders, bondholders and the banks ...aka rich people with the dems hate.

    A simple compare/contrast could further expose Obama/Biden for the double-talking hypocrits that they are.

    The VP debate needs to be about VP issues and what they would do as VP.

    What it looked like was two girls arguing about who's boyfriend is better.

    It is a proven fact that the VP has little to do with the election. Well, the McCain run could upset that fact but I don't think this has that factor.

    That is a good point. The who idea behind the GM bailouts was to save the Unions. So what if GM did go bankrupt? The company failed. Let the winners win and the failures fail. Same with the banks. All the government does with bailouts is perlong the problem and hurts us all in the long run.
