    I expect Racist Joe will intersperse a bunch of wildly inappropriate comments with insults and bold face lies.

    I expect that the moderator, being from a Democratic Party controlled network, will do her best, to make things easier for Biden, and do her best to make things more difficult for Ryan.

    In that regard, Biden has probably already seen his questions, while Ryan has not.

    The media bias in this country has reached the boiling point.

    #Vote012: VP debate will be interesting political theater with NO mention of systemic change: re term limits, a balanced budget, ending voter suppression and voter fraud. Red Gang vs Blue Gang – same old gridlock rhetoric leads to ZERO principled compromise. Each man a long-term Congressional politician appearing to perpetuate the status quo as they see it.
    Power to the People – #LAGV! E Pluribus Unum.

    IF what these two people say is true we can all forget watching the debates. They have summed it all up for us.

    It is doubtful that this will happen. People will tune in to the debate. The two men will answer questions and try to be the best. They both hope that we will listen to them and give them high scores.

    Those who do not feel that the debates count that much may or may not watch. They will take their cues from what is said every day by the candidates. They will compare what is said today to what is said tomorrow. They will know who has made policy decisions and who is still on the fence. What you hear today is what you will hear tomorrow. The candidate will not chance his speech based on who is sitting in the audience.

    What should we expect?

    Biden will come off as a clueless attack dog and will alienate much of America.

    Ryan will showcase his knowledge and analytic skills, thereby showing America that he is more than capable of driving our nation towards fiscal sanity.

    You might as well get used to Biden regurgitating the dem talking points, blaming things on Bush, making ridiculous statements using the words "fair share", the "rich", the "war on (enter liberal labeled sub-group here)", along with making the inevitable off-the-cuff racial gaffe. This is what he has always done. To expect anything different would be more than foolish.
