***OFFICIAL VP DEBATE THREAD***
 
A little early but I was just sitting in the park this afternoon when a small group of runner's came by me and it was Ryan running along the waters edge. They were running a pretty damn good clip. A quick pace for a jog that's for sure.

WTF is he doing his debate prep in St. Pete?

On Saturday night Romney held a big rally about 1/2 mile from my house and right across from where Ryan was running.

I don't expect any big gaffes from the Vice Gaffe Machine, but if he tries to slander Ryan or the Romney plan, I think he'll end up getting clowned just like his boss did.

Who started the presidential debate thread? I can't seem to find it.

I fully expect Bidden to get demolished. Ryan looks like he could debate circles around the ol' man.

It couldn't hurt to have the same person start it imo.

It seems to me by listening to the talking heads that Biden is considered a great gaffe producer but that most people are underestimating Bidens debate skills. Citing his performances at the Democratic debates when he was running for President.

Thank goodness it's not at a high altitude.

I don't think it will be that bad, really. I think Biden is a better debater than Obama. He shares Obama's biggest problems though, a dismal record and a lack of coherent plans for the future. If he doesn't overextend himself too much in his efforts to mischaracterize the Romney/Ryan platform, he'll be OK. If he gets too aggressive though, I think it will backfire.

It was some other kind of debate thread that was turned into the debate thread rather than making a new one.

Edit: Look for DaFace's thread about the Presidential Debate Drinking Game.

Biden wont get slashed. He is an old hand at this stuff. Ryan, as good as he is, and he is 10x the intellect of Biden, will have his hands full.

Id expect Biden to go full out Chicago and throw out every misleading and wrong characterization he can get into his allotted time, assume Ryan will want to refute them all and burn his time up, then launch into a new round of bullshit.

It would've nice if DaFace had started the VP Debate Drinking Game but I guess that idea is blown to hell.

Biden will have a lot of prepared lines, and I expect he will attack as a test for Obama's angry persona coming up.

RINGLEADER 10-09-2012 07:08 PM

Well the burden shifts to an extent onto Romney and Ryan. Their detractors want to write a story about how Ryan isn't up for it, how he has an anger issue, and how he doesn't understand some mundane fact or the other. They also want to write the "They're back" narrative.

As long as Ryan stays away from that and the debate is a push then that's good for Romeny. If Ryan isn't prepared with attacks on 47%/etc. from Biden you'll get the "They're back" stories.

Where Ryan is staying tonight for debate prep. From the Vinoy website. It's all pink.

Where he was running, along the concrete path in the foreground. I like to go out here after work and watch the sunset. This is a cell phone pic.
