    Lyin Ryan repeated two lies of the year–"death panels" lie and "government takeover" lie.

    Malarkey indeed–don't trust Romney/Ryan.

    I wish Biden wouldn't have interrupted constantly. It certainly makes it harder to get the issued answer. Makes
    for a Ryan victory for sure!!!

    Biden did his job. I think he won. Unlike Ryan, who was very disrespectful to BIden

    Fanrastic performance Joe Biden! You rocked! With the truth- the economy IS getting better , our spending is decreasing with the wind down of both wars , etc., etc!!! Glad you corrected "Lyin Ryan" on so many bold faced lies ! He'll have a laundry lust of sins in the confessional. We need to let Obama/Biden work their plan and help the USA. BF

    I'm so disappointed that the moderator could not keep control of the situation . Biden was just rude interrupting and condescending so he was successful Being confusing because I Could mot follow what was being said. Therefore he's a jerk and I can't imagine him
    A heartbeat away from ruler of the "free" world.

    Biden put Ryan in his place with the malarky comment a polite word for a liar something Romney and Ryan have done all campaign long..To them and all hypocritical republicans out there the truth from Pres.Obama and Biden about their challengers will hurt the republicans,they hurt them before wait till after the presidents debate for more hurt on the republicans.They can't run their campaign on lies,it'll come back to get them in the end!!

    Biden smirked and interrupted, but forgot one thing – laughing at your opponent is not proof that your own policies are any good. Four more years of big smirks is not what I'm interested in

    Its always amazed me that whenever one of the GOP darlings is interrupted with inconvenient facts, the first thing the GOP does is scream about decorum: this, coming from the party that has tolerated racist comments from their supporters, threats of personal violence during the ACA debate, etc. What a bunch of spineless, pathetic, amnesiac whiners they are. They don't deserve to lead this country until they grow a pair, man up and admit their ideas do nothing but push wealth from the middle class towards those who need it least, namely their donors.

    Priebus on CNN repeat the same garbage about Obama not passing a budget since he's been president! First of all, the President doesn't pass budgets, CONGRESS passes budgets! Why do Republicans keep repeating that stupid lie? Second of all, the President has submitted his budget requests to Congress every year. Congress has passed a couple of budgets and the president has signed them. Congress has FAILED to pass a budget at least one year and the president had to signed individual appropriations bills when each of them were finally passed by CONGRESS. Please let me repeat the point that CONGRESS passes budgets, not the President. Priebus and the GOP need to take a civics class.

    I thought Joe Biden was rude and very pompous. Is interrupting someone every time they are speaking the new etiquette now or is he just trying to make up for Obama's inadequacies?

    Joe Biden clearly won this debate on substance. Hmmm funny how it was ok for Romney to keep interrupting the president, but Joe Biden was a bully. Well guess what, I'll put my money on the VP that fights for my rights as a women and stands up for the middle class.

    Ryan wins on SUBSTANCE.

    Biden did do a good job of taking attention away from the substance, to deceive the people. It likely fooled some people.

    People are funny. Last week when Romney interrupted and got animated, he was strong.

    This week when Biden gets a word in edgewise, he's a bully.

    "Four more years of big smirks is not what I'm interested in..."

    Good. We can count on your vote against Ryan's creepy smirk.
