Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, noting that Vice President Joe Biden reportedly plans to revive a legislative push for gun control,  challenged him to a debate about policy responses to gun violence.

“I would like to invite the vice president to engage in an hour-long conversation and debate, ‘How do we stop crime’,” Cruz said at the National Rifle Association Leadership Forum today. “If Vice President Biden really believes that the facts are on his side ... then I would think he would welcome the opportunity to talk about the sources, the causes of violent crime, who is carrying it out, and how we can do everything humanly possible to stop it.”

Cruz indicated that he doesn’t regard Biden as a formidable opponent, noting that Biden’s home defense advice — firing a shotgun twice into the air — “is very useful, if it so happens that you’re being attacked by a flock of geese.”

Wow! This is one debate in which Uncle Joe would not be able to do laugh, interrupt, show those chiclet teeth, or go all crazy eyes, in order to get out of these arguments. 

But I seriously doubt Biden will take Cruz up on it because he knows Cruz will take him to the cleaners. Joe is not as manic as he seems at times.

Biden will destroy Cruz in a debate, just like he destroyed Ryan in the VP debate.

Nope - don't EVEN worry about that one. Everyone now is well aware of Crazy Uncle Joe's manic interrupting, laughing, smiling with those fake Chiclet teeth of his, etc. 

Ted Cruz would verbally skewer and knock Biden on his a$$.

Paul Ryan was shocked and not prepared for Biden's bizarre debate behavior - because Biden knew that that if he didn't, Ryan would have debated him under the table. Cruz is very aware of what is going on. Know your enemies, they say.

Cruz was not afraid to talk with Di-Fi about the Constitution, when she wanted to slap him. Handling wacko behavior from Joe will be a piece of cake. Biden just may want to take early retirement after Cruz is done cleaning his clock.  :)

But thanks for your concern. No worries.
