Really? You're telling me Biden "won at everything!" and then say I'm blinded? Yeah even the Democrats and the the Obama campaign are admitting Biden got mudled on foreign policy and taxes. But I can tell you guys are going to try and pretend this was some kind of ass-whooping. Go look at the polls and read what was said. I don't agree with PriceJ that Ryan did too much, but I think his game plan was to play conservative. Biden won on some things, but lost on style.
Take a look
According to CNN poll of debate watchers released following Thursday's matchup between Rep. Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden showed 48% of respondents named Ryan the winner and 44% said Biden won.
According to Yahoo.com with 431,544 votes in poll Rep. Paul Ryan won the debate, Ryan has 54% and Joe Biden 46%.
A CNN/ORC International post-debate poll shows a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself.
A CNN/ORC International post-debate poll shows. Seven in ten said Biden was seen as spending more time attacking his opponent, and that may be a contributing factor in Ryan's 53%-43% advantage on being more likable. Ryan also had a slight advantage on being more in touch with the problems of average Americans.
I think what he did do was give the Dems what they wanted to see: A Democrat attacking a Republican to avenge the Obama beat down. Geroge Stephanopolis seems to agree. Clearly you're all here insisting it was a "beat down" and "no contest." But don't you see that's because you agree with Biden? If that was the goal, then fine. But Like I keep saying: Debates are about winning America, not about winning the debate. Shouting down and arrogantly laughing at your opponent might make your core base feel good because of the resentment for the opposition they hold, but it's a cheap thrill that doesn't sell well to moderates. If you look bad "winning" the debate, but it hurts you in the election was it worth it?
It's a VP debate so it won't make much difference, however I am not sure outside of Biden firing up his base, that this changed anything other than cement Biden's reputation as something of a lose cannon.
