    Yes, Biden can't walk the walk so he had to bully Ryan. Ryan is a leader not, a rude interrupting person. Of course Biden can't deliver a solution.

    Hey Trish – I agree with you. The moderator couldn't have been in any less control of the debate than she was. Pitiful at best. At least Ryan kept his composure and was polite. Biden was so rude with his interruptions that you couldn't hear the rest of Ryan's comments which was probably the intent.

    Biden won – Ryan only has been a congressman a very short while . He's still wet behind the ears.

    What's really pathetic is that Ryan is what passes for a Republican intellectual these days.

    I think that Biden did too much. However, he was full of substance, he really had to separate the man from the boy in Paul Ryan. He was really trying to keep Ryan honest in my opinion. As much as it was distracting, rude, and annoying, I think it was a very necessary part by Biden in order to keep democratic ideas from being demonized.

    Biden all the way! Funny, the little memories the Republicans have. Mitt interrupted and was a bully in the first debate but oh you republicans loved it. However, Biden interrupts and he's rude and a bully, oh please. Grow up. One thing cannot apply to one and not the other.

    Biden and Obama played the blame game again, by throwing America's intelligence community under the bus ... but, previous statements and video ... contradicts Biden's assertions that the White House was never asked for more security in Libya ... or, that it was a terrorist attack ... resulting in a conclusion that Biden was lying ... Also, Biden's condescending sneers were extremely rude and disrespectful.

    Ryan was knockout KO.. Total Knockout!!!! Obama has balls and actions speak louder!! Since the 60's, Obama has been the ONLY president to ever stick their head on the chopping blocks for healthcare. Obama, the only president with balls" to give the go ahead to take down Osama bin Laden.. Who by the way, the US has been trying to kill since the 90's. This is clearly a NO brainer Obama gets my vote because he has Ballls. I say "NO" to whimpy salesman Romney.. I am not buying what hes saleing!!!

    Oh my, all the whining about Biden rolling his eyes when Ryan tried to get away with the same false statements he's made for months now. Weren't we all rolling our eyes in disbelief of his nerve. Rude? Which is more rude, interrupting lies or actually telling lies? Biden won on the facts.

    Only Republicans are allowed to bully......that's all Mitt did..... Good job Joe mr. "Cannonball".....Ryan got creamed

    Amazing! Biden is "rude"? Romney was praised for the same behavior last week.
    The big difference is that Biden actually had more substantial points to make. I am now convinced that Romney/Ryan cannot be trusted- they are both too vague on their "plans".

    Clearly Ryan held his own. Biden is obnoxious, but that will make the libs happy.

    Bidon won purely on facts alone while Ryan successfully pointed out facts that was just wasn't true, yes we can do better than the R&R Republican ticket.

    Biden KO'd Ryan. Ryan looked really nervous. As a woman I was as didn't like his vision for this country or my body. Plain and simple.

    Biden SCHOOLED Ryan in no uncertain terms!
    Thank you for the "malarchy" pronouncements Biden! Thank you for the apropo injection of the 47% remarks.
    Thank you for an outstanding debate. An I especially want to thank you for calling him out on his lies, mis-conclusions, and incorrect future scenarios.
    Obama 2012.

    Ryan WIPED HIS FACE at the end of the debate as if to say "Wheew! Saved by the bell!".
    Meanwhile Biden looked fresh as a daisy. He was smiling, bouncing, and could've easily gone ANOTHER 90 minutes setting Lying Ryan straight.
    Fabulous job Biden.
    Biden exuded just enough dismissiveness, disbelief, and debunking to set a whole lot of confused souls who up and until last night believed the bunk thata R&R were feeding them straight.

    I watched the debate with my grandson who is in the 8th grade, and he commented how Biden seemed like the bullies he sees at school who mock and laugh at others in an attempt to belittle and control them in order to pretend they are powerful. I thought that was a good illustration of the behaviour of Biden the Bully , behaviour which is not becoming of someone in such an important position. What a poor example of leadership to our young! As an undecided female voter, I have made up my mind not to vote for Biden/Obama.
