A funny thing Happened on the way to the Forum 1966
Looking at this debate Joe Biden is doing the kind of attacking necessary mollify the left and give them an excuse to not hide from the spin room, but Ryan is beating him in both style and presentation and of course substance.
Biden is certainly doing better than Obama but that is one of the lowest bars that any candidate should have.
Biden is familiar to the American people, Ryan is not, but today Ryan has introduced himself in a spectacular fashion.
Biden has alternated from being good to being odd in terms of reaction, Martha Raddatz has pressed Ryan a lot more than Biden so she will get less flack from the media but she has been unable to save Biden except in as much that she has slowed down the debate near the end.
I’d say Biden has slowed the bleeding but I don’t think this will stop the Romney Trend, that is going to be up to Obama, the real question will be how the media will spin it. I think Biden has done enough to allowing the left to try and spin it as a win, but I doubt the focus groups will agree.
The clock is running out on this president Biden didn’t hurt Barack Obama but Paul Ryan has helped Mitt Romney.
Be Afraid Democrats, be very afraid.
