The media is asking if Joe Biden's rude performance filled with smirks and snide laughter was on purpose. . .
He was trying to make Paul Ryan look like an amateur, and trying to make himself look like the old salt. However, what Biden wound up doing is revealing what the Democrat Party is all about by actually being himself.
Joe Biden came across in the debate with Ryan as mean, rude, and disrespectful - just like the current version of the Democrat Party. That is who they are. You know the base was all excited, because they wanted blood. They didn't see Biden as acting like a buffoon. The democrats actually think that Biden won the debate on Thursday Night.
You saw it when Bush was President. The liberal democrats hate with a vile passion the Republican Party. We have heard stories of democrats saying that if Romney wins they are leaving the country, of children being punished for wearing Romney shirts to school, or being physically assaulted for their GOP leanings. One girl was told wearing a Romney shirt was the same as wearing one that said KKK on it. A reporter called Paul Ryan the "perp of the week," and in California there was an instance where two democrats wound up getting physical during their own debate. The democrats are the union thugs beating up conservatives at town hall meetings, and ACORN using fraudulent tactics to register democrats. What we saw in Biden was indeed the angry face of the Democrat Party they normally try to hide.
Biden, I am sure, was feeling like he had to make up for Obama's lack of fight in the Romney debate. Joe put up a great act, looking mean and angry, and smiling as he launched lie after lie after lie. He lied about the Benghazi disaster where Americans were killed due to the Obama administration's incompetence, he lied about not voting for the two wars that he indeed did vote for as Senator, he made up numbers, and denied Ryan's facts. His lies were so bad that the White House had to try to fix the situation later.
The problem for the liberal left is they believe their own bull crap, and a part of that is their belief this nation is center-left. They believe being nice to the enemy will make the enemy like you, and that has gone wrong, too. They have also created in their minds their own versions of Romney and Ryan, but in the debates those caricatures of the republicans did not show up, so now they think they were lying to be someone else. Reality, in other words, is not exactly the Democrat Party's strong suit.
When reality slaps them in the face, they get mean and angry, and they have been getting meaner since Reagan. The mean, overbearing, rude and disrespectful old man who sat on stage battling it out with Paul Ryan epitomized the Democrat Party of today. Joe Biden showed us who they are. He was exactly what the democrats have become, and it was disgusting to watch.
People are not stupid. They see this garbage, and they want nothing to do with it. This is why usually the democrats try to hide who they really are. Remember in 2008 how Obama sounded more conservative than McCain? Have you noticed how he tries to come across as a nice guy? It is all an act, because they can't afford to reveal who they really are, like Biden did last night. If the liberal left democrats reveal that they are statists who believe in using the government to control you, and on top of that they are angry and violent people, they would never get a vote.
Thursday Night Biden turned off women voters, minority voters, and independents. He disgusted them, and coupled with Obama's weak performance, and the reality of their agenda as it is exposed by the GOP, a landslide win for Romney is damn-near inevitable.
Romney and Ryan have been phenomenal, but they haven't had to be. Obama and Biden have been making themselves look bad without any help. At this point, Daffy Duck and Yosemite Sam could beat them.
This is not to say the election is over. You never know what the democrats will pull. The October Surprise is still in the oven, and the timer is about to go off. The question is, will the voters believe the crap the democrats come up with, or continue to recognize reality?
Then again, now that I get to thinking about it, and what I saw in Biden in that debate, perhaps I should have titled this piece "Crybaby, Temper-Tantrum, Lashing Out Democrat Party."
