The veep debate – part 2

12 Oct

We thought we’d start off with this:
A XBIZ survey of those working in the adult film industry finds the vast majority support President Obama over Mitt Romney, 68% to 13%, with another 14% saying they wanted “someone else.”

With that out-of-the-way, the vice-presidential debate as we follow-up on our first article.

Some thought Joe Biden was disrespectful.
Some thought he was great.

Very few thought Paul Ryan hit a home run.

There’s no doubt Biden gave an extraordinarily aggressive, top-to-bottom attack on the Romney-Ryan ticket.

He repeatedly interrupted and even laughed at Ryan during the debate.

Our take?

The vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan was one of the best debates in a long time.
But then again we like roller derby.

Biden had the primary goal of firing up Democrats after President Obama’s crappy performance last week.

He did that and more.

He literally responded to every single claim of Ryan’s and didn’t let a thing go unchallenged.

If you’re a Democrat you have to be very happy.

The one part that brought a giggle to our group was when he scolded Ryan for criticizing the Obama administration’s economic stimulus package while at the same time asking for stimulus money for his own congressional district.

Ryan found his toughest opponent wasn’t Biden, but rather his own record and the Romney campaign platform.

He had trouble responding to Biden’s attacks.

Ryan was exceptionally weak on the proposed Romney tax plan – “not mathematically possible”, according to Biden – while once again refusing to give specifics.

In terms of style, Ryan didn’t take kindly to being interrupted.

We have the feeling Biden did it on purpose.

Biden was more prepared, more experienced and the clear winner.

Will it make a difference?

We won’t hazard a guess.
