Biden defends Obama's debate, casts Romney as flip-flopper

Council Bluffs, Iowa (CNN) - In the face of bruising headlines and public opinion that President Obama did not bring his A-game for Wednesday's presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden rallied to the president's side - disagreeing with dominant public opinion and essentially casting Romney as a flip-flopper.

"I thought the president did well. He was presidential," Biden said after reporters asked him about the president's widely panned debate performance.

Obama, citing a study from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, argued Romney's tax policies would cost $5 trillion –a claim Romney forcefully shut down during the debate.

Team Obama recalibrates, attacks

(CNN) – Amid a flurry of post-debate speculation over where President Barack Obama's debate sparring gumption was Wednesday in Denver, the Democrat's campaign wove a narrative of a president attempting to keep the debate civil, sticking to answering the questions concerning American voters.

But while Team Obama credited the incumbent with acting collected and presidential, the campaign itself wasted no time in delivering sharp attacks on the substance of Romney's remarks.
