Biden's rough around the edges but it's working so far. I'd say they are at least even.

Seems like Biden is eating him alive.

But what do I know?

My thoughts too but I also didn't think that Romney clearly won last week either.

I think Ryan's going for a pleasant, easy-going look while he's listening, but it easily slips over into "smug" territory with that small little smile.

His strategy of doing that folksy laugh thing every time Ryan talks is hilarious. It's like he's saying to the viewer "Isn't that the most ridiculous thing you ever heard."

Agreed.

I must admit I did like Paul Ryan's little joke about not getting the words out the way you want all the time while looking pointedly at Biden. And Biden had a good comeback to that. I don't think that's a good excuse for the Romney quote they were discussing, but it was a good back and forth between them.

And speaking of Romney, how about that story about him visiting that family? That's kinda interesting.

FYI, Obama's chances on InTrade have gone up 3% since this debate started.

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.
