    Who Do You Think Will Win  the V.P. Debate and Why?

    By winner, I will assume you mean, which candidate will have the bigger impact and put forth the BEST of what they want voters to hear 27 days before election day. My opinion of politicians in general is no secret, by any means......Having said this, Of course I intend to watch....and my guess at this point is that Joe will get a spanking.

      I agree, but I have to say that I have spoken to so many people who keep talking about Biden's ability as a debater.  This should prove to be very interesting.

      I actually LIKE Joe, as a person and family man. He's a Veteran politician, for sure, and may well be an accomplished debater....but Ryan is a young, aggressive & overly confident piss pot, whom I believe may overwhelm ole Joe.  Tonight will tell

      Well, so far Biden has 1 fan!

    If Ryan loses this debate, somebody put something besides caffeine in his coffee. Like salt peter. No doubt Biden will be taking a handful of little blue pills. That's the only hope he has of performing adequately in this one. I think it will go about the same as the Steelers v. Titans game tonight. A blow out for the conservative team, as opposed to the team that relies on dirty tricks (like stomping on the Terrible Towel).

      Sounds like a game plan to me!

    It's not which one debates better. It's which one is the best salesman. This debate is nothing more than another celebrity endorsement. Remember, you don't have to be in entertainment to be celebrity.
         I know it's the V.P. candidate's job to endorse their presidential candidate. But as a voter, it's my job to pick the man that would best serve the United States as president if the situation arises that he needs to fill that position. It happened twice in my life time and we got Johnson and Ford. How did that work? Not well.
         I don't want to hear," My dad can beat up your dad." I want to hear, "What are you going to do if dad isn't here?

      I happen to agree, but these debates are dictated by the moderator and I think they are very limiting in terms of really learning anything substantive.  To make matters worse this moderator is a friend of President Obama.

      Unfortunately, the moderator is like a replacement referee. No one pays attention. They ask question, candidate mostly ignors it and goes on with a speech he probably gave 3 nights before somewhere. They talk over moderator before question finished.

      When one of the participants is responding, the other should be put on mute. This constantly interrupting and such is ridiculous. I will say, however, Biden did a great impression of a clown.

      B&G You are right. I was expecting him to say," They all float in Washington." Ryan is lucky. Biden could have ripped his arm off.

    I believe Paul Ryan will win the debate for the same reason Romney won the first one.  The truth has no agenda and the facts are on Ryan's side. There is always the caveat, however, that Biden will have clever little quips and such so I guess we will see what we will see. My odds are on Paul Ryan.

      I go with Ryan based upon ability. I hope the debate showcases that very well.

    Ryan is my pick.  He's intelligence going up against a guy who should be wearing the dunce cap in kindergarten.  Neither Obama nor Biden can defend the indefensible.  They are both failures.

      Agreed, Frog Prince. There is no question that Ryan is the better candidate.

    I think Ryan will.  Considering he will not have as much pressure as Biden, I expect him to be more relaxed.  And he will then, as usual, do a good job getting his points across.
    Biden may have the experience and the ability to debate, but the odds are against him because he does not have much to run on, which only increases the chances of him making gaffes as he tries to pretend otherwise. This is all I can expect from Biden tonight - in Obama's own words, "If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from."  But I don't think Ryan will give him that opportunity, being the detail-oriented guy that he is.

      breakfastpopposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I too am counting on Ryan's ability to speak clearly, make his point and quickly squash any lies popping from Biden's mouth. I imagine there will be many of those tonight.

    Biden was rude, infantile, disrespectful and embarrassing. The moderator had good questions but no control whatsoever.
