Intense verbal sparring in VP debate came quickly tonight

Published: Thu, October 11, 2012 @ 9:40 p.m.


At odds in an instant, Republican Paul Ryan cited the death of the U.S. ambassador in Libya as evidence Thursday night that the administration's foreign policy is unraveling.

Vice President Joe Biden shot back, "That is a bunch of malarkey." "Not a single thing he said is accurate."

The sparring is fast in this, the only debate between the two vice presidential candidates in the presidential campaign, with a little less than four weeks left to run.

Too bad for you guys that it was Biden that won the polls. When Obama takes the gloves off next week and b/slaps the Mormon moron you can really pull your hair out. You guys are going to love the next four years.
