I’m admittedly a little confused.
Tonight I watched Vice President Joe Biden eat Congressman Paul Ryan for supper and laugh him back out, and yet this was lauded as “rude, impolite, disrespectful, interrupting, ” etc., yet no one had a problem with it when Romney did the exact same thing to President Obama and the moderator last week.
Double standard much?
Everyone declared Romney the winner because of his overly-aggressive, demanding, bullying “style.” Even Democrats approved of the disrespect perpetrated onto a more passive, quiet President Obama, (who, btw, isn’t likely to behave much differently next time around because he’s just classy and passive like that), yet when we turn the tables and unleash the Democratic junkyard dog, VP Joe Biden onto a young Paul Ryan, suddenly Joe is now in the wrong and seen as uncouth? How utterly ridiculous.
Joe Biden clearly won the debate and did exactly what he needed to do to clarify the many untruths and spin that have been flowing all over the various cable channels since the first debate. I appreciated the clarification very much and I have no doubt so did most of the American people. What I don’t appreciate, however, is the extremely obvious bias, whining, and sour grapes put forth by some when the exact same tactics are used in the second debate as were used in the first. What’s good for the goose, people!
