Nervous Democrats Dread Joe Biden – Paul Ryan Debate

Joe BIden has been compared to ‘that crazy uncle grandparents kept locked in the basement and only let out for Thanksgiving and Christmas!”

Democratic strategists are eyeing the forthcoming debate between Vice President Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) with extreme nervousness in the wake of President Obama’s horrible performance in his first debate with Mitt Romney Wednesday night.

Democrats feel that a typical gaffe-filled performance from Biden next Thursday could further the train wreck that is fast becoming the Obama campaign effort.

They also worry that Biden’s legendary capacity to convey his views in what’s called a ‘workingman’s bar conversation’ could backfire. Many remember when the Vice President classy use of the ‘F’ word over an open mic during the Obamacare roll-out. Any use of an Uncle Joe-isms’ would would mean that Obama might have to wait until the second presidential debate on Oct. 16 before righting his sinking ship.

Across the Democratic ranks, the reverberations from the president’s poor showing were clearly still being felt Thursday.

“Joe Biden needs to go back on his Zoloft as soon as possible and try as hard as he can to try to outwit Ryan.”

The use of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) as Biden’s debate sparring partner has drawn concern as the VP practices his debating skills.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s widely-acknowledged victory in Wednesday’s presidential debate has helped him to draw even or slightly ahead in several key swing states, according to polls released Friday.

A poll by found Mr. Romney leading President Obama by 3 percentage points in Florida and Virginia and by 1 point in Ohio, after polls have consistently shown the president leading over the past month.

The polling firm conducted a previous poll two weeks ago that showed Mr. Obama with 3-point leads in Florida and Virginia.

    I’m not excited about it. I’ll tell you that much.

    On the plus side you have to admit that Biden is a seasoned speaker. On the minus side, well, he’s still Joe Biden.

    The debate went really well. Biden wouldn’t let Ryan’s lies stand unanswered and the kid looked like an amateur out there.

    Now, let’s watch conservatives passionately deny that their guy lost.
