Anyone notice the extreme eye blinking Biden began doing when his turn on abortion came along and he started tap dancing verbally around his religious
beliefs vs politics? rapid eye blinking is a sign of someone not believing what they are saying - in otherwords not being truthful.
No where else in the debate was this noticed during my viewing anyone else?
My take on debate is this, if one is shallow on knowledge and nuance then Biden would be winner just on well honed and practiced bluster - lot o hot
air makes for winner? Typical Biden tonight with foot out of mouth.
Ryan was earnest but too polite to moderator cut offs and rapid change of subject just as he was to get to meat of matters on occasion - that was a
moderator disservice to the public.
Moderator needed to tell Joe to STFU and did not when he continually interrupted Ryans answers. I think much more could have been had in this debate
if Radditz manned up.
Joe trotted out several discredited points such as the 5 trillion revenue issue and used tried and true scare tactics on medicare / social security
which are lame and really just looked ignorant about the Libyan situation. Saving GM is also not something I'd brag about right now - taxpayers are on
hook for 50 billion + on that one, lets see based on 200,000 jos Joe said were saved thats $250,000 per job footed by taxpaying Americans. Worse yet
thats borrowed money that'll cost much more per job when the bill comes due.
Ryan when challenged about "exact" details on tax policy could have done a home run by mentioning Nancy Pelosi and her comment about passing it before
you see it regards Obamacare which Joe had the deciding vote on as VP or could have mentioned same about stimulus spending which ultimately only
benefitted big banks and wall street because it was open ended with no specific details - missed chance there.
