      I decided last night to turn on the vice-presidential debate for a bit last night, admitttedly not too long because I do not have a say in the upcoming election. Trying to be as un-bias as possible I saw both men making some fair points but what really would have put me on the side of Ryan was Bidens total lack of respect while Ryan was speaking. Biden had this arrogant almost schoolyard way of laughing as Ryan spoke. Now I would like to again say I did not watch the entire debate and I also would probably fall on a more liberal agenda most of the time but I found Bidens behaviour really offputting. What did everybody else think.

      I agree. I caught replays because I was unable to watch last night and I was somewhat shocked at the interruptions and his lack of respect.

      In our society today what you saw is what peoples reality will be. People care to a degree about the issues but in the end if the guy looks and acts like a troll, then thats how they will see him.

      Interesting to see you view on it. Now go out there and vote in november.

      Remember too that Biden wasnt laughing "with us" during the debate, he was laughing "at us".

      I couldn't watch it. I've taken to loathing both sides about equally and there isn't much utility in hearing them barf up the same tunes for their respective choirs over and over.

      I agree. Biden was very condescending, compaining about equal time, when in fact the time for both Biden and Ryan were equal. I thought the moderator interrupted Ryan on several occasions to bail out Biden.

      I'm a Canadian and I take full advantage of my right to vote here. Maybe one day when Canada invades the US you can vote for your next prime minister.

      100% not srs

      Yeah, I would say content-wise, Biden did a much better job than his boss during the debates -- But the phony laughter, calculated smiles, and programmed interruptions wreaked of desperation and overcompensation in my opinion. I also found it weird when he would shift from supposed jubilance to the somber Clinton-esque "I feel your pain" mode. The debate was a little bizarre.

      To give Biden his due ... He did pretty well on content (even if he did make some stuff up....i.e. the intelligence reports he conjured out of thin air), but the polls show he lost the debate, which I would attribute entirely to his "crazed monkey on PCP" act.

      Uncle Joe seems to have been caught in a bald-faced lie with his comment that "We didn't know of the security concerns in Benghazi." Good God. Perhaps he should have watched a little bit of C-Span before he began the debate last night. Military officials on the ground in Libya at the time sat in Congressional hearings testifying to the fact that they had requested increases in security, manpower etc. for weeks prior to the 9/11 Benghazi attack. All of their requests were denied. This isn't an opinion, or spin. This is documented, sworn testimony before Congress.

      I appear to know more of what is going on than poor old 'Uncle Joe!'

      I kept thinking "what is he laughing at"? I attended debates in college and they would never let someone interrupt or act like that.

      They brought up the topic of a nuclear Iran, and Biden started laughing. Maybe inside joke or something but I didn't find it funny.
      BRB possible nuclear bombs supplied to terrorists = not funny to me.
