  • I watched the Vice Presidential debate. I thought it was much more spirited than the Presidential debate. I also thought Vice President Joe Biden was the clear winner. I will be interested to hear what you ladies thought and what the general consensus will be all over the internet.

    As I watched the live feed online there were comments constantly streaming alongside. It is amazing to be able to see commentary live while you are actually watching the debate. I don’t know how people type that fast though!

    Overall I thought Biden’s experience in foreign affairs showed. He obviously knew what he
    was talking about. I did not love his laughing at everything Ryan said though, that seemed a bit smug.

    I thought the moderator was great. She maintained control, asked good questions, and required that her questions were answered. Did you like her?

    She repeatedly questioned Ryan why he and Romney have refused to show any actual plans, to delineate exactly what cuts they would make and which loopholes would be closed. I wonder why they will not come forth with that, too. How do you feel about that?

    On the abortion question, a quote from Twitter: “@dannysullivan Ryan: my faith guides everything. Biden: my faith is strong enough I don't have to impose it on those of other faiths.”

    Did you watch the debate? Do you agree or disagree with my assessment? I welcome all thoughts and opinions.
