Joe Biden, one helluva happy warrior

I’m sorry I missed this yesterday, but as Ed Kilgore points out, it’s one of those rare bits of political prediction that reads even better after the event. You might say it’s like day-old jambalaya in that regard.

From Charles P. Pierce at Esquire, anticipating Joe Biden’s debate performance:

ap-vice-presidential-debate-4_3_rx512_c680x510

“Joe Biden is not riven with self-doubt. Joe Biden is not exhausted by the hurly-burly of politics. Joe Biden is not burdened by the weight of events and laid low by the constant battle against know-nothing obstructionism. Joe Biden is not going to take the stage tonight and find himself wishing he were anywhere else. I mean, god be good to him, as my gran’ used to say, but Joe Biden actually likes all these silly performance pieces in which we insist he be engaged in order to stay vice-president. He revels in them. He would do ten of them a day, if he could. When I consider Joe Biden, and I look at the enthusiasm with which he throws himself into the various cataracts and torrents of hogwash that constitute our politics these days, I find myself looking at him the way I look at people who sky-dive or drive in demolition derbies. I have no idea why they do what they do, and I have absolutely no intention of doing it myself, ever, but, goddamn, do those people look like they’re having fun.

So tonight, when Biden takes the stage to debate Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny-starver from the state of Wisconsin, it is very unlikely that the debate will hinge on whether either man really wants to be there. Biden eats these kinds of things on toast, and Ryan is as ambitious as Satan.”

All I can say is … Yup.

One further point, though. A lot of Democrats were heartened by Biden’s performance last night and eager to see President Obama equally engaged and passionate in the second presidential debate, coming next week.

Well, be careful what you wish for.

Last night, Joe Biden was just being Joe Biden. He pulled it off because like him or hate him, that’s who he truly is. On the other hand, Obama trying to pull a Joe Biden would be disastrous. A performance like that just isn’t in Obama’s nature, and he has to find his own way of reasserting himself. The second debate will be almost as important to Obama as the first debate was to Romney.

I find it laughable that Ryan tap danced again around the direct question of what loopholes would be closed to offset the 5 trillion in across the board tax rate cuts. After the first dance he was asked a second time and still danced, then finally had to be asked if there were any that were off the table as far as being taken away and he still could not bring himself to answer the question. He and Mitt Romney know the details and they also know if they come clean it is game over.

If Obama did a “Joe Biden” he’d be eagerly labeled by the cons as an “Angry Black Man”. Anytime a black person disagrees with the status quo, they must do so in a very sedate manner so as not to scare the weak kneed who, deep down, are frightened to death of anyone, (male, female, black or white), who has the balls to stand up and say something.

Biden was labeled as “impolite” by a couple of bloggers today. Obama will be labeled as “arrogant” and “uppity”. He can’t do a Joe Biden; he has to be seen as a mild mannered Black Man at all times.

When he gets into that phone booth, then he can take off his glasses, change his costume, and slap that “S” on his chest.

=====================

getalife: I think the gop knew the CIA was involved but held their political hearing anyway.

I think you’re right. There ARE cons on the Intelligence Committee so they had to of known. However, just like with the outing of Valerie Plame, they felt that it was better to bring about political victory or points for the repubs by “leaking” information, than it was to secure the safety of its operatives.

Republicans — they wear that flag pin and place their hands over their heart – but it means NOTHING to them. Just theatrics.

What you missed was an arrogant, ignorant jerk known as your vice-president childishly attacking a man of integrity, concern, intelligence and creativity known as the honorable Rep. Paul D. Ryan. Rep. Ryan wishes to save the once-free nation from fiscal irresponsibility and a end a general disregard for the values that made this once-free nation great.

I was appalled and disgusted with how that old jerk laughed at the problems that plague us. Iran and worldwide jihadists wish to kill us and push Israel into the sea. What does Joe Bidin’Time do? “He Laughs!” “His” “boss,” King Hussein Obama is spending our money like a Welfare Queen spends “her” money on a huge-screen TV. What does Joe Bidin’Time do? “He Laughs!” Business are folding. Regulations are out of control. Corporate taxe$ are skyrocketing. What does Joe Bidin’Time do? “He Laughs!” $716 trillion has been raided from people who earned it only to shift those dollar$ over to ObamaCare which will have deadbeats on its rolls. Further, experts know that ObamaCare is getting thousands of doctors to quit. They’re getting out, you naive liberals! We are lurching ever more to looking like England where their teeth are falling out and death panels rule the day! What does Joe Bidin’Time do? “He Laughs!”

It’s all NO LAUGHING MATTER! I’m tired of this “You didn’t build it!” crap!!!!!!

WE THE PEOPLE ARE FIRING THIS INSTALLED PRESIDENT and WILL BE HIRING A MAN WHO WILL SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS!!!!!!

Amen,

If you oppose a *stimulus* package that the democrats eventually pass, your constituents will bear the burden of additional taxes to repay the debt, so of course you will request some of the money for your district. Think Joey Giggles doesn’t know that?
The *debate* confirms what Bob Woodward’s book revealed. The Obama administration is responsible for the failure to pass any meaningful legislation to solve any of the fiscal cliff, entitlement reform, tax reform problems. Biden refused to listen to any of Ryan’s responses and tried to distract the audience in an effort to prevent people from even hearing Ryan’s side. The consequences of this administration’s antics will be disastrous not only for my family–yours just might have a longer wait.
Find that Biden vote to overturn Roe v Wade yet? It’s easy to locate.

The Vice-President would have been more effective if he had used his legislative experience the last four years to counsel the administration and make it effective! Unfortunately, he was pushed aside and now we have a President that has failed because of his lack of experience and ability! It is sad to read the comments on here by democrats desperate for anything positive to reverse the momentum the republicans have going as they and the American people look for new hope and change to move forward and strengthen our country by making a change in the presidency! The voters are not stupid, the President promised things and he failed to deliver so the people will vote him out!

I can only imagine the indignation had Ryan been as childish and rude to Biden and Biden was to Ryan. Time and time again I read comments on this blog about how disrespectful the anti-Obama comments are, but I guess when it’s your guy doing the disrespecting it’s ok, even applauded. If someone who acts like Biden did last night has the qualities you desire in a VP, congrats. Me, I can’t wait for January. Thanks Biden. Your petulant, rude behavior last night turned a lot of indies off, and definitely was not an example of how Obama promised 4 years ago to build coalitions and work across parties. But oh yeah, I forgot, it’s ok when your guy does it but crucify the other candidate if he acts similarly. Just love the double standards.

Although last night didn’t hurt, it didn’t help much. If you hang around far left sites vs objective ones, you’ve still got wet pants on here.

There was nothing he said that would really give any confidence to the middle class that they would be a priority. We already know that the repubs are the protectors of the upper class, now they want to move to the middle in the last weeks? I don’t think so…

Ima Librul — “If Obama came out in Muslim garb pulling a goat and opened with a prayer from the Koran, He would still get the votes from the regular cluster here.”

And if Romney came out in temple garments and talking about Kolob, how would *that* play with the GOP faithful?

The Bidens and the Ryans met after the debate and had a good time.

The Vice President had a blast crushing the kid but at the end they acted like Americans and had fun.

Good to see.

Keep Up the Good Fight!

So in “I’m a lib” world, there is something wrong with being in Muslim garb and using a non-Christian prayer. :roll: Hmmm… why does he HATE the US Constitution?

Joe seems to be caught in the current of a temporary upswing. Being rude,,insensitive, bullying, nasty, denigrating, mean sprited, aggresive, overbearing, condescending not to mention interrupting Paul 89 times, has given the administration optimism, not to mention the populace who expect to receive what is left of the money in the treasury. Imagine someone with those qualities in a position of making decisions.

As unhappy as I was with President Obama’s performance in his debate, I was ecstatic with Biden’s performance last night. He was knowledgeable, assertive and stated the administration’s positions quite clearly. All I remember from Ryan (well, other than the lies) was reference to the “5-point plan” (with no specifics) and how comfortable he was asserting his religious views on the entire US population — the exact issue American’s were afraid of with JFK.

I believe that Hillary learned how to smile from Biden.

Or does it just come natural to pure…. evil…. sociopathes?
.
The Bidens, Bushes, and the Clintons of the world have a reason for their wickidness.(power and money)
But for people to actually support them is what is troubling.
.
Quite troubling.

There’s an arrogance and cockiness that’s sometimes borne of age, experience and common sense. Older people can have that. Younger people can’t.

When you’re older, you might understand. :D

Not me. I cheered as Six-Gun Joe paddled that youngster’s behind and sent him running home crying to Mama.

Me too!

I thought of Bill O interupting the President in an interview, I thought of Mitt’s 27 myths in 38 minutes, I thought of all the terrible things the President and his wife have been called….

and I did a little happy dance.
