This is a summary of the VP debate: Ryan was polite and informative. A factchecker site with ties to Obama found fault in some of his "facts" while Biden was rude, obnoxious, yet successfully ramrodded that debate. Ryan had a choice.......tell Biden to STFU or allow him to continue to be rude and try to put out his views between all of the interruptions from Biden and the moderator. Ether way the MSM would have made political points off of it to help Obiden. Personally I think if he had told Biden, in so many words, to STFU Biden would have continued his act, maybe even escalated it to another level. Ryan made a choice to keep it reasonably congenial because he knew Biden would have really shown his ass had he told him in more animated terms to knock it off. Biden showed himself to be the horses' ass he is and he also showed the Democrat voter that there is some life left in the Dem ticket. Ryan missed an opportunity but he didn't have to put his foot down because when your opponent insists on eating himself alive you pass them the salt. Romney/Ryan feels there are still enough rational people in this country to see Biden's performance for what it was. Most of us are angry and disgusted by it. Dick Cheney said that our allies saw that debate and many are worried about this man being one heart-beat away from being POTUS. Our enemies don't care because they don't respect ether the VP or our current POTUS. Only time will tell if Biden made a mistake. Already many of Biden's lies have exploded in his face. The way his over the top performance was received will probably be revealed next week, not in time for the Sunday morning talk-shows I'm afraid. Biden asked America to trust him that even though they had no clue that the Libyan ambassador asked for more security, and that a growing security problem was about to rear it's ugly head, that is was the intelligence community that screwed up, and we're suppose to rely on his judgment when it comes to making sure nukes don't fall into the hands of terrorists or that Iran never builds a nuke. I think the public would be foolish if they bought this nonsense. Actually I think they would be totally switched off from reality if they accepted it.
