Hump Day Report: Does The TV Make My Ego Look Fat?
ALOHA, ALL!! Wow. Seriously, Joe Biden? What a ridiculous display of arrogance and idiocy. As someone who speaks in front of groups on a regular basis, I know the visual overrules the verbal every time. And friend (a nod to your reference of Ryan several times), your visual was crappy. It’s said that television adds 10 pounds to someone’s weight. In this case, TV added at least that much to Biden’s over-inflated ego and fat head. Outrageous. (Shaka to Randy for the photo caption)
The best analysis I’ve seen is from Charles Krauthammer (no surprise – see the video in the link): Biden’s Disrespectful Condescending Behavior Undid Possible Debate Win “If you read the transcript, I think it’s dead even,” Krauthammer said. ”If you heard it on radio, Biden won. If you watched on television, he lost.” Estimates are that 50 million watched it on TV. He lost.
How the Brits reported it – much more fairly than our press. Joe Biden Attacks Paul Ryan During Debate “With a flash of his teeth – and a lot of finger-jabbing – the Vice President won plaudits from his fans during the debate last night, but his performance ran a very high risk of being seen as bullying and condescending, alienating swing and female voters. Veteran columnist Peggy Noonan described Biden as ‘weirdly aggressive’ and said his bullishness ‘looked mean and second-rate’ as Republicans claimed that Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times during the 90-minute debate.” BTW, whoever made Joe’s “flashy” teeth should have his or her dental license revoked. Horrible!
The GOP quickly had a web ad up about an hour after the debate:
And how about those “facts” Biden quoted? Top Ten Worst Lies By Joe Biden In Debate “This is a bunch of stuff.” You can say that again! Here’s the biggest lie that will surely come back to haunt him and Barry: “Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security again.” Biden lied through his teeth about the fact that the administration–specifically, the State Department–had been told again and again that security on the ground in Libya, and in Benghazi in particular, was inadequate. The day before, in Congressional hearings on the Libya attacks, former regional security director Eric Nordstrom described his frustration with having those requests turned down by the government bureaucracy: “For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”
Final Thought (Shaka to Jodie): “When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, the foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.” ~ Proverbs 29:9
