OMG you guys, I think Paul Ryan is the first person ever to come up with the nickname of "Bean" for a child or animal!!!

Yeah, she's not pulling any punches with these questions.

This debate is definitely much better than the Romney/Obama one. When Romney and Obama debate again I want it to be more like this.

EDIT: LOL, Cori.

I still love how the Republican Party is totally cool with their religious beliefs being the inspiration for the lawmaking process, but when the government interferes in how religion does things, then it's bad. Can't have it both ways, people.

Is Ryan's other child's nickname Peanut? Cuz that would be shocking.

This about sums it up:

I call my cat both "bean" AND "peanut."

She looks like neither.

Ryan did a nice job in the last 10 minutes but too little too late.

The sense I'm getting on Facebook is that the perception of win and loss will be along partisan lines this week. All the conservatives feel that Biden did a bad job, but the liberals seem to see him as the stronger debater.

I think Biden came off very strong (but then I'm more liberal so am I merely biased. . .)

I thought Biden did a great job, and I expect my conservative friends will think Ryan did the better job. I still would like to get a real answer from Ryan or Romney on their precise economic plans. Because, still nothing.

I LOVED Biden's answer to the abortion question. It is what I have always wanted to hear from a male politician.

I think Ryan articulated several critiques of the Obama administration and have voice to things conservatives want to hear. I can see why some will be happy.

As a debate, it wasn't even close. Biden's depth of knowledge made it look like Ryan was running for student council.

"I accept my churches position on abortion... life begins at conception and I accept it in my personal life.... but I refuse to impose that on others" It was awesome.

Here's the video: Joe Biden, Paul Ryan Spar On Abortion, Contraception (VIDEO)

Yes, the ex-wife of one of O's friends from law school. The right did their best to bully her beforehand -- like the whole "liberal media" canard it's nothing more than working the refs.

Thankfully it didn't work.

I have never liked Ryan and the more I see and hear him, my opinion of him goes lower.
