has been under too much pressure lately, but it seems that it worked well for him and the Democrats. The vice president, focused and determined, didn’t let any opportunity go by to attack the Romney-Ryan ticket and help lift up the spirits of the Democrats that were let down after the first presidential debate.
During the 90-minute conservation between the two VP contenders, withacting as the moderator between them, those hoping for a series of gaffes and inappropriate outbursts from Biden were left disappointed. The VP seems to control the debate well and grabbed and fired back everything thing that came tossing from the Republican VP nominee, Paul Ryan.
When questioned about the recent terrorist attacks in on the US Consulate in Lybia, Ryan attacked his rival saying that Obama’s foreign policy is making America “less safe.” Soon after, Biden replied: “With all due respect, that’s a bunch of malarkey.”
As Biden began to discuss the domestic issues, he said that supporting the Romney-Ryan ticket would mean putting interests of wealthy people ahead of military and the middle class. In response to the attack at Romney’s 47 percent comments, Ryan jumped back saying, "I think the vice president knows, sometimes the words don't always come out of your mouth the way you want."
"But I always say what I mean," Biden responded with a smile.
Both candidates also addressed Medicare and taxes for the middle class. "Different than this administration, we actually want to have big, bipartisan agreements," Ryan said, suggesting that if both sides worked together they could help budget cuts that would allow for a 20 percent tax cut across the board for Americans. "Look at what Tip O'Neil anddid. They worked out of a framework."
"The only way you can find $5 trillion in deductions is to cut deductions for the middle class," Biden said. Otherwise, it's "not mathematically possible."
Biden insisted that his more than 30 year record speaks for him and so far whatever he has promised, he has delivered, Biden said as he insisted that one does not grow the country top- down.
Biden ended his debate with the closing remarks that the Americans are looking for an even shot, and he and the President take it as their responsibility to make sure that “they have a clear shot and peace of mind and can say to their family, 'It's gonna be OK.'"
