Vice President Biden's mom and dad taught him many things--but not manners.
-- Rich Lowry, Editor in Chief, National Review, Fox News contributor
President Obama in his debate with Gov. Romney seemed to be missing in action. Vice President Joe Biden should have been. He was rude, talked non-stop and did nothing to further the discussion in a serious way. He was like a Cheshire cat with his inappropriate smile, and it was like a political speech without anybody else in the dialogue.
Paul Ryan was knowledgeable and tried to have a serious discussion on very important issues. Biden insisted on talking over him.
The next debate Biden should have is with himself. He loves the sound of his own voice and certainly doesn't want to hear any other view points.
This wasn't a debate. It ended up being a monologue with Biden dominating the time, and cutting off Ryan every chance he could.
This ended up like being trapped in a bar next to a know-it-all drunk. Biden wasn't drinking but he reinforced why he only got 1 % of the vote when he ran for president four years ago.
Ryan made a favorable impression. Biden reinforced the impression that he's a blowhard! Ryan helped his ticket. Biden hurt his. And the country lost the opportunity to hear a serious debate about serious issues.
