    I see a lot of interjecting but not anything I'd call particularly rude. Its more constructive than giving both sides 5 minutes to bullshit with no interruption.

    You said more or less the same thing during the Romney/Obama debate. Then again, I'm not watching this one, so you may be right this time.
    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.

    Biden is definitely entertaining. From the last 5-10 minutes since I've turned it on I'd say he's winning.

    I really don't think Ryan wanted this to be as much about the GOP's behavior in Congress as Biden is making it.

    Yeah, Biden is crushing Ryan. Can't wait for this to hit the Republican blogosphere. The Paul "Intellectual Heart of the GOP" Ryan annihilated by Joe "Foot It's What's for Dinner" Biden. Of course, the people who thought Biden wouldn't do well forgot that he's an expert debater while Ryan is completely inexperienced.

    Ryan is getting trampled. That's my opinion. I know I'm biased. But I think I have some sense about these things.

    Yes, I did. I still think Obama beat him handily on the facts. The thing is, these aren't measured objectively. As the debate wound down and I realized how it looked to low information voters, I acknowledged that Romney had probably "won", thanks to lying his ass off. I'm evaluating Biden by the standard of the electorate (or at least trying to).

    Did I hear this wrong or was Ryan's logic just "Because taxing the top income bracket more won't fix the economy by itself, let's just not tax them more." Please tell me I heard that wrong

    Ryan's too stuck on "here's the maths" imo. Not enough charisma to pull it off without sounding nerdy.

    Paul Ryan asked for specifics about tax plan, still doesn't have any.

    Wasn't he expecting this question?

    Not enough policy to back up his claims either.

    If he had actual math, I'd be partial to him. I don't think he does.

    Ryan just said that the GOP budget doesn't include increasing the defense budget. He said they're going to cut it. Biden's face is priceless lol

    I checked Romney's website, this is what it says: "reversal of irresponsible Obama-era defense cuts"

    Did Ryan just reel off a quarter of a million job cuts in the military?
