    So it looks like CNN is already writing this off (hoping for, praying for) a Biden win. The big question here is what stupid things will Biden say and how obnoxious and outlandish will he be while Ryan takes the high road and counters with facts?

    First watch Biden he's not as polished,polite as president Obama,he'll just rip Ryan to shreds that's all with facts.Ryans surrogates saying publicly how patriotic he is,but wasn't he the one that helped defeat numerous job ,infastructure bills ,is that what patriotic is ,not where I come from..Is helping to defeat the first black president at all costs patriotic without helping him fix the mess your partys president screwed up,don't think so as well.So don't you so called patriotic republicans say anything about this president because as far as I'm concerned you're all traitors looking the other way in denile as your Bush ran this country in the ground,you voted for that idiot twice didn't yah,so quit being so hypocritical because you're racist as well as ignorent in historicly voting for losers and this country shows the scares of your ignorence as well!!
