This image describes the entire mood of the Vice Presidential Debate 2012! Bumbling Biden proved every one wrong by trumping it! And now we know what Obama sees in him! If one word describes the debate, it’s ‘Feisty’ and the crown, without doubt, goes to Joe Biden!
Biden was his animated and colorful self but that he didn’t let that come in the way of his great debate performance because what he had in addition was passion.
If this was not enough to shatter Romney’s confidence (after the first presidential debate the Republicans had been quite bloated), Biden finished the job by his casual confidence and the edge of experience. And though Romney and his camp were quick with their effusive (a little too quick, and a little too effusive) claims of winning the night, it only showed how shaky they were as they walked off the venue.
His laugh, smirks, funny facial expressions apart (they did add spice to the triumph though) Bidden was in full swing. He made his points and didn’t let Ryan get ahead of himself. Biden interrupted Ryan several times where he felt the candidate was getting ahead of himself. He was by no means as subdued and polite as President Barack Obama, and we all know what the politeness cost the President.
A brilliant example of Biden’s trump moments was his comment to Ryan when the candidate avoided giving specific numbers while discussing the economic issues and what Mitt Romney had in his bag. So when Ryan denied the Romney plan would raise taxes on the middle class, Biden didn’t just take his word for it or denied or challenged him when he said very smugly, "Not mathematically possible."
Ryan we feel, fell for the trap and answered, "It is mathematically possible. ... Jack Kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth.” And oh did that give Biden the loop to swish through and slip in a knock-out!
"Oh, now you're Jack Kennedy,” came VP Biden’s response with the roll of the eyes that has since driven the Republicans mad!
Here are some Biden Moments from the Vice Presidential Debate 2012 that are simply all the trophies the Democrats needed, regardless of what the Romney camp is saying!
