This is what happens in conversations like these. You smell bullshiat and you laugh that he's spewing this bullshiat, especially since you can't interrupt him.

Exactly. I can't fault him for laughing in the face of a liar

So did Romney, from what little I saw of the first presidential debate. Did the same people speak about his smirk as well?

I think most people cared about the president seeming not to care then Romney being Romney. But I dunno. I don't recall any stories about it.

Personally, I think the laughing helped Biden

Remember when liberals, moderates, Democrats, centrists, etc all openly acknowledged that Barack Obama shiat the bed in the first debate, and that Romney outperformed him? Is it any surprise to anyone that Romney's fanboys refuse follow suit today?

Its not my article, it's from politico. I realize that "stupid people tweet shiat because our society is in freefall" articles are nothing new, but Politico deemed it worth of being on their main page, so since it's not news, what better place to submit it than on Fark.

You just seem to want to tear me apart for something I had no hand in writing. Why you feel the need to, I don't know, but you are. So why are you so pissy this morning?

It was a little of both. Few things are funnier than a submitter heroically defending an article that is, if we are being extremely charitable, incredibly lazy and mediocre.

fair enough. Can we both agree then that this was a crap article that somehow deserves front page on Politico?

You know what, BS needs to be called out. Ryan was spewing BS like a wild man, and Biden reacted appropriately.

Republicans have been very, very good at controlling the narrative and cowing the media and Democrats from calling them out on their lies. Obama in the first debate is a perfect example of that. Biden wasn't going to sit there and act like BS being spoken is legit and shouldn't be laughed at. It was quite refreshing. Republicans really haven't had to face that before, so I'm sure they're completely thrown off by it. The best they can do is try to point away from WHY Biden was reacting that way and laughing at them.
 
2012-10-12 10:50:26 AM  
I'm sorry, Republicans, that Ryan had to lie so much and that Biden had to respond in such a condescending demeaning manner, calling Ryan out on all his bullshiat. I'm sorry if his attitude hurt your feelings. Republican feelings are notoriously fragile. But we saw what happened when Obama held back on Romney for all his horseshiat.
 
2012-10-12 10:55:49 AM  
When a campaign keeps bringing up something that has been called the "Lie of the Year," you kind of have to laugh at them.
 
2012-10-12 10:58:36 AM  
It was an actual debate, with back and forth, bordering on aggressive at times, with one candidate openly calling the other out on his bullsh*t.

That's terrifying to the mainstream media.

Found one. Yeah, it's all of twitter. Or perhaps just all of Florida. Or just a nut from Florida.

@TheFlaCracker
Biden is laughing about his performance in the last 4 years. Are you? #teaparty #tcot #lnyhbt #gop

If someone loudly exclaimed "facts" to me along the lines of "The Corvette is built by Dodge." "Honey Boo Boo's mom wears a size 4." "Joel Schumacher is the finest filmmaker of this or any generation." or "A 20% across-the-board tax cut will reduce the deficit." I'd laugh in that person's face, too.

Weaver95: man, the Republicans are PISSED about Biden openly laughing at Ryan's lies.


He didn't lie! The one and only thing they can point to is whether or not Administration called Bashar Assad a reformer and that just comes down to semantics. Hilliary said that others said he was a reformer. May news sources got it wrong too. And I would say that if Hilliary brought it up and said it that way then she was trying to form public opinion that he was a reformer. It's kind of like when politicians say that they have friends that say stuff.
And Uncle Joe is over there laughing like a damn idiot. And I like Joe! I really wish there were more people out there that could just talk to the American people like he normally does. But last night he was on something. They talked about giving Obama valium before the debate, what the hell did that give Joe? What turns a normally likable guy into a complete arse?

The worst they can say is that he exaggerating. While old Joe out and out lied

SineSwiper: especially since you can't interrupt him.


he just did it over 80 times. Even CNN talked about how often Joe interrupted Ryan. To say it never happened is ridiculous

This was a sad dodge by Ryan. "What would you do about Syria that is different from what the Obama administration is doing?" Well, we would have (in the past) not said this relatively unimportant thing that has absolutely nothing to do with the actions now and moving forward or the question you just asked me. I wish she would have followed up on that. "Congressman Ryan, the question is what would your administration do differently going forward than the Obama administration is doing?" His answer might have not been a lie, but it was a COMPLETE non-answer dodge of the question.
