Vice Presidential Debate: Who Won, Paul Ryan or Joe Biden?

by at . Comments

The first and only 2012 vice presidential debate has come to an end.

Who do you think was the winner of the showdown in Kentucky?

Biden, Ryan

After last week's presidential debate disaster for Barack Obama, V.P. Joe Biden was tasked with righting the ship, while Rep. Paul Ryan sought to keep Mitt Romney's momentum going.

Which candidate do you think better achieved his goals coming in?

What was the most meaningful exchange? Did Ryan help make the case for Romney and the GOP's views on foreign and domestic issues over this 90-minute tussle?

Or was it Democrat Biden who bettered his boss' chances for re-election?

Biden. Interesting that when he is on the offense, he's considered rude. When Romney is on the offense, he's considered assertive.

VP Bide is arrogant ---hole! I did not realize that until tonight. I am a senior and his blah-blah-blah were many words about nothing. His smugness embarrassed me as he represents a co leader in America, and I did not want the world to see that!

I believe that Ryan did quite well. He gave a lot more detailed information, and played clean and respectful. I personally think that these recent debates are going to help republicans immensely.

Biden was very disrespectful tonight always interrupting Ryan. Also Biden saying "um" a million times and that dam laugh/smirk of his wasn't very professional.

VP Biden mopped the floor up with Ryan tonight. He called him to task and forced him to recant all his lies and distortions he and Romney have made during this campaign. What's interrupting Ryan's blatant disregard for the truth and saying "um" a million times as you put it, got to do with the fact that VP Biden is tougher, more honest, more experienced, and more believable than Romney/Ryan? This is a down and dirty campaign whose tone was set by the Gop ticket. You can't cry foul when getting a dose of your own b.s.

Very true.

Biden was wishy-washy. Not at all firm in his presentation, and he made some really ridiculous statements, such as the judges not having an "agenda"? OH COME ON. He was very forceful, as well; seeming to come across antagonistically, almost like he was lecturing. Ryan did well, I thought--I especially liked his answers about abortion. He is sincere, and I think will do more good for our country in the next 4 years with Romney than Obama and Biden could do in 20 years. And high five to Martha for her patience {my gosh} and super thought provoking questions.

Ryan was completely overmatched. VP Biden's vast political experience, his toughness, honesty, and genuine love for our country was in full view tonight. Ryan's inexperience was all to evident. His responses were for the most part canned. When pressed to answer direct questions from VP Biden and the moderator, he like Romney became evasive and vague with his responses. They have no answers on how to improve the economy, on healthcare, or foreign policy. When asked what they would do differently, all they do is badmouth the Obama administration's record. Concerning his answer to the abortion question, are you aware of his and Romney's distorted view on the definition of forceable rape and how it stand with their stance on abortion? Devils in disguise

Paul Ryan was fact based. Biden was based on emotion.....did anybody see him pointing the middle finger at paul ryan ? very cheesy move

Um I tried to vote for Biden, and it told me I already voted. I haven't already voted. I've never even been to your site before. What a scam!

Ryan Won!!! Biden was so disrespectful, which is not an appealing quality to have.

Classic Joe Biden at his best. Passionate, articulate and committed. He dominated the debate and totally owned Ryan.

Yes, he was amazing with his lies about Libya saying that they never received any requests for additional security. Completely outstanding. and your intelligence doesnt seem to be on-par with listening to a debate "LOL WTF?" When it comes to political matters, do not use text-talk/abbreviations. But really, I replied to you not to show my political beliefs, but the complete irresponsibility of your posting dialect. Enjoy your even sir or madam.

Talk about smug. Obviously you are not aware that LOL WTF is entitled to his/her opinions and the right to freely express them. If the truth be known, your intelligence doesn't seem to be on par with listening to a political debate. Are you making your vote count based on the relevant issues in this very important election. Are you even aware of the issues? Are you prepared to state your views? Or is badmouthing others for their stated opinions your whole political commentary? Just like Romney/Ryan. Learn the facts then vote according to the truth behind what the candidates say regarding those facts. Your worried about someone's posting dialect? Get real. I will debate you anytime Einstein and I promise you I will mop the floor with you just like VP Biden did with Ryan tonight. Read more celebrity gossip at: http://www.thehollywoodgossip....
