Second debate serves up rehashed republican talking points

Another week, another debate. This time Vice President Joe Biden, and Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan got a chance to battle it out.

With Biden’s track record and certainly after last week’s less than stellar performance by President Obama, one would have expected to see more fire in this debate. And certainly, fire is what we got.

Posted in Reviews / Tags , ,

Climate change is a topic that invokes spirited debate. Though most agree that global warming is happening, some still claim it is fiction.

“Due to the historically low expectations for Gov. Palin, were she simply to do an adequate job tonight, at no point cry, faint, run out of the building or vomit, you should consider the debate a tie.”

President Obama didn’t faint, run out of the building, vomit or cry (at least not on stage), but I’m sure plenty of Obama supporters will have. From the too rehearsed, unnatural intro that Obama delivered, to his final lackluster statement, the debate went almost entirely Romney’s way.
