Joe was a bully; Paul, composed

I am writing this the morn- ing after the VP debate, and the only words that come to me to described Joe Biden’s performance is schoolyard bully. Laughing, mugging, smirking, interrupting. The only thing missing: blows were not exchanged.

Paul Ryan showed a great deal of composure, and self control. Because Martha the Moderator was oblivious, at one point he said to Joe, we could have a much more intelligent debate if we did not keep interrupting each other. Joe ignored his request. Biden was on a mission to burn and destroy.

I felt the moderator showed very poor taste to ask both men what faith meant in their personal lives. That is a personal thing between you and your God. Both men are Catholic, Paul’s answer was a well measured response following the Catholic doctrine. Joe had a much harder time trying to match his Catholic beliefs with the Democratic platform, and his president’s gay marriage, abortion, contraception, and don’t ask, don’t tell programs. He sucked it up and gave his normal confusing answer.

With regard to Libya and the death of our people, lies and cover up is all you can say, and Joe did that.

Are you ‘better off’ or ‘surviving?’

I believe the coming election to be extremely important. The future of many people struggling to survive without jobs may depend a great amount on who wins the presidency.

Political advertisements ask: “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” As a voting senior citizen I question: “Does my survival depend on who occupies the Oval Office?” For me being better off is an extra bonus, but at my age survival is an absolute necessity.

May the best qualified candidate win. It’s the American way.

Hello, my fellow American voters!
I watched the Oct. 3rd and Oct. 16th presidential and Oct. 11th vice-presidential debates.
1st Romney-Obama debate covered 7 topics: jobs; budget deficit/debt; social security/entitlements; federal regulation of economy; healthcare; federal government role in economy; partisan gridlock.
2nd Romney-Obama debate covered 11 topics: college graduate jobs; gas prices; taxes; equal pay; Bush policies; Obama’s record; illegal immigrants; Libya; assault weapons; jobs; candidate misperceptions.
Ryan-Biden debate covered 10 topics: Libya; Iran; economy; medicare/social security/entitlements; taxes/tax reform/spending/budget cuts; military policy; Afghanistan; Syria; abortion; negative campaign tactics.
As an INDEPENDENT female feminist (egalitarian) voter, I support the Romney/Ryan ticket.
Romney and Ryan won all three debates, although Obama improved some in the 2nd debate.
Ryan won despite Biden’s consistently rude/disrespectful behavior during the debate
(Biden interrupted Ryan often, laughed often while Ryan was talking, pointed his finger often).
Biden’s tactics to evade issues/truth were disrespectful to Americans interested in facts, figures, forecasts, and solutions for real people with real problems.
Romney and Ryan won with substance, directness, integrity, respect, clarity, facts, commitment, inspiration, and leadership.
These debates confirm that Romney and Ryan are the best persons in terms of qualifications and character to lead our country to solve problems and make life better for all Americans.
I am inspired by Romney/Ryan, and I hope that you are too!
Best regards,
Cas Lee

Here is 'ol Joe interupting a woman who is telling her story about her recovery from breast cancer. She never finished her story.

Comments (224)At a campaign event Friday afternoon in Florida, Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson took the stage to a cheering crowd. They were being introduced by a Florida resident named Barbra who began by telling a story about her struggle with breast cancer. She was in the middle of describing her fear of relapse when Biden went over to Sen. Nelson, whispered something, and then eventually started doing squatting charades in an effort to get the crowd to sit down. The Vice President also gave thumbs up to the crowd and broke into laughter while the woman was telling her story.

I thought Mr. Bidens performance was totally unprofessional. Did he get his teeth whitened?

Hey natureman, are you kidding? Our country is almost destroyed now. One more term by Obama and we are done as a country.

There are no jobs, the economy is in the dumper, 5.5 TRILLION added to our Natl debt. the Middle East is on fire etc.

There is even doubt who Obama's real father is. There is speculation the Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed communist, might be his father.

The 1st thing Romney will do, when he enters the Whitehouse, is get rid of all the czars.

Hey natureman, this appeared in a local paper:

Mitt Romney is a man who has been successful in all facets of his life, and yet he is referred to constantly as a "millionaire" as if that makes him a bad person. When did we stop applauding success? This is a by-product of Obama's influence as he has created class warfare.
