That would jive with 538

hutchkc: Uchiha_Cycliste: Is this worth watching/listening too?
I expect I'll just rage at Ryan and learn nothing new from either.

The VP debates are the best. The pres ones are mild as they have to appear presidential. The VPs can take the gloves off and throw punches.


If only...

Oh for crying out loud, the thread already started? Man... We get this shot up early don't we? Note to self, show up an hour before hand from now on.

Honestly don't even know if I can do this now, I'm exhausted. Been fighting a bad sleep cycle for a couple days now, falling asleep at best early to mid-evening. So right now I'm running on caffeine. Ryans lies might send me into an actual homicidal rage in my current state of mind.

Quick aside, still upset we didn't have a Steward O'Riley thread when they debated.

Intriguing. Biden/Palin was a meme generator, but the actual debate was lackluster because he was so farking stupid. So stupid Biden couldn't tear into her.
You think he might rip into Ryan?

Biden will do well, and it's in the best interest of the media to portray this as a comeback moment for Team Obama. It will be declared as such pretty much regardless of Joe's performance.

Please plug your results into UnSkewed Polls and get back to us with the real data.


I never claimed to be authoritative, merely passing along what I learned tonight. I honestly expected a LOT more people to be in the tank for Romney.

soy_bomb: mayIFark: soy_bomb: When your hope for a comeback relies on Joe Biden, its time to throw in the towel.

That is the exact reason, it will be a come back. Joe is not as bad as people think he is. Whatever he does, it will be better than what people expect him to do. So, by definition, he will win the debate. and it will shift the focus from the 1st debate.

The main danger for Obama is that Biden will be a gaffe machine when he is speaking off the cuff.

/Stand up Chuck! Let 'em see ya!


Why are gaffes an issue? Because they are unexpected, something they are not supposed to say.

For Biden, nothing is unexpected. So, his gaffes are not really gaffes. No one cares if he makes a gaffe.

That is a big plus for him.

Well I plugged your 100 calls into UnSkewed Polls and it said that 98 of them favored Romney.

Uchiha_Cycliste: Lost Thought 00: People still buy non-phone dedicated music players? why?

I do. An 8 gig internal, 32 gig external mp3 player is like 20-30 bucks. (fm radio too)
I go through 1-2 a year riding too and from work. electronics don't like a few hours of sweat exposure every day.

\don't have a smart phone because I'd break it.


This, although I only do 10 miles a day, and I do have a cheap smartphone, though. And I got an iPod shuffle gen 1 for $5 at a yard sale last week.
 
2012-10-11 08:51:00 PM
Just checked in with the Freepers. They already know that the moderator gave Biden the questions ahead of time, so they're ready. Ryan could be balled up on the floor, crying and screaming "No more questions! I don't know! Make it stop!" and they would still declare him the winner.

He has no choice, he has to stop the Romney advance due to teh 1st debate.

Aren't most of Biden's gaffes just awkwardly or poorly worded statements, while Romney's accidentally reveal his actual platform?

Romney set a record for lies in the shortest amount of time in a debate.

Paul Ryan will beat it tonight.
 
2012-10-11 08:52:07 PM

orclover: .......but Biden has to want to do it. All of the Left at this moment, are honestly wondering if Biden and Obama even want to win. Tonight that question gets answered.


I'm sure they want to win. Nobody wants to become President only to wind up with one term.

But what if they don't? If Biden lays an egg today and Obama follows suit Tuesday it'll be obvious they don't want to win. How do Obama supporters deal with that (I ask as one)? I can't really be mad at dude if he looks at the current landscape and says, "Screw you. You get what you deserve."

I guess the question is would Obama supporters be more accepting of a losing result if Obama just quit or sincerely tried but came up sort?

Same here, but less than 10 miles a day.

Probably. It makes for a good story, and the media is all about that instead of actual journalism.

Biden can't lie anymore. He has to argue Obama's record for the last 4 years. Obama couldn't do it. What makes you think the potato counter can?

2/10


That was my highest score yet. THANKS!!!1!
