Someone should replace the sound of Biden's chuckling with the sound that those horrid "laughing clown" toys make.

Bipartisanship from Biden last night:

"If they would GET OUT OF THE WAY and let us pass the tax cut for the middle class and make it permanent. If they would GET OUT OF THE WAY and pass the jobs bill. If they would GET OUT OF THE WAY and let us allow 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down but they never missed a mortgage payment.”

Biden added: “JUST GET OUT OF THE WAY.

Joe Biden:

The very picture of "Bipartisanship."

"What should ol' Joe be holding, catching, doing"

Or maybe he is fixing to catch Cankles as she falls to earth. "I got ya Hil, trust me"

Cavuto.

Neil is going after Larry Sabato politely calling complete Bull@#$% on Sabato's read of the Electorate. (Much better than Biden did BTW)

Neil is saying, if I understand it from your writing and what happened last night, are you now agreeing that if Mitt continues to do as well as he has, that not just the undecideds, but voters who actually have been for Obama will now possibly move over to Romney?

"Oh , no no, answers Sabato. I'm simply saying that Romney has energized his base that was always fro him but not energized."

Cavuto provides the proper version of an inoffensive humorous smirk at that defensive retort by Sabato. Ha.

Charlie (Colorado)

One of the things the CIA does in its official capacity is meet with the President for a daily briefing on the potential dangers lurking out there.

That's the intelligence briefing we've heard so much about, except I believe the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) gets the job now.

fdcol63

Does Larry Sabato know that, if true, his argument presumes an EVEN SMALLER pool of "undecideds" and "independents"?

Because those are the rats who are fleeing the sinking Obama boat.

Frau Alptraum

"Biden added: “JUST GET OUT OF THE WAY."

This explains Biden's raucous laughter at Ryan's mention of bipartisanship as a goal.

he did talk about being Irish, how about little leprauchan on the table that is telling him hilarious jokes -- a little friend, invisible to everyone else

Jane - Mock the Media!

I picked up Amy's kids today and while waiting in line the Vice Principle (a closet conservative in a public school) came up and asked me: "Are we going to do it?" She was so excited. I asked her if she watched last night. She did - and was simply amazed.

We are not alone.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

October surprises so far:

1. Obama flops in first debate.

2. Obama Administration State Department and Intelligence officials conclusively contradict carefully staged WH propaganda that uncirculated youtube trailer resulted in death of US Ambassador and security staff.

3. VPUS Slow Joe conclusively establishes in nationally televised debate that no one in the WH is minding the store on the security of our embassy personnel in the middle east.

4. The day after debate, VPUS Slow Joe and WH flak Carneyval double down emphasizing the WH cluelessness and disconnection from the rest its administration in dealing with the Benghazi crises. The Buck never gets to this WH.

Yankee/Oriole Game just started.

Here's a tough question:

If Biden was on the team playing against the Yankee's, who would you root for?

Did you guys know that Sarah Palin's son, Track?, went back to A'stan in September?

That's easy. The team playing against the Yankees.

Great story jane. Keep 'em coming!

I agree with the statement that Joe's mugging ,laughing, sneering and general disrespect toward Ryan is going to be a continuous story until Bammy's debate. I also concur that this now gives Bammy a lot of room to act like a petulant, arrogant jerk which he seems to do quite naturally. The Rock-em Sock-em team has none of BillyJef's finesse which is why they will lose on Nov.6th.

Jane,

Since it is down near narciso, its got to be the Krakken.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

Hands down the Yankees. But then, my father in law lived about 1/4 mile from Yankee Stadium in his youth, and made my wife a life-long Yankees fan. While growing up, she had the late 40s early 50s lineup memorized complete with batting averages, and can still recite it.

I suspect The Won's nose is going to itch quite a bit at the next two debates.

Probably because of the cocaine.

This is getting really good. Insty links to a story that Bill Clinton is assembling a group of lawyers to fight back if Obama tries to pin the blame on her.

Biden trying to catch manna from heaven.
Or my favorite seeking forgiveness from the Almighty for being such a disappointment in his Catholic faith.Of course reconciliation with a priest would be beneath. him .He has to ask God's forgiveness directly.

"Insty links to a story that Bill Clinton is assembling a group of lawyers to fight back if Obama tries to pin the blame on her."

Great Clarice:

"In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.”

Yippee!

"Saigon, shit. I'm still only in Saigon. Every time I think I'm going to wake up back in the jungle. When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing... I hardly said a word to my wife until I said yes to a divorce. When I was here I wanted to be there. When I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle. I've been here a week now. Waiting for a mission, getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room I get weaker. And every minute Charlie squats in the bush he gets stronger. Each time I look around the walls move in a little tighter.

Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. "

Why the Planet of the Apes and Apocalypse Now references?

Well Beckel just did something I never thought he even wasn't capable of doing and that is totally pissing off Perino who keeps her cool and schoolmarm charm better than anyone i have ever seen. He is now in her doghouse big time because he showed he is a truther.

daddy

And just starting catch-up, but I don't think there are any more sharks left for the Nobel Peace Prize morons to jump over.

They have beclowned themselves to being no more relevant than bad performance artiste's, like the smelly, barefooted guy on 5th Avenue playing "Stairway To Heaven" for tips on a cheap acoustic guitar, with a dog wearing a red bandanna round it's neck lying next to him on a dirty green sleeping bag.

For Nobel Prizes Awards they are the equivalent of piss Christ in urine.

Hell, just give the damn Nobel Peace Prize to Naomi Wolf's vagina and cut out the farce.

Thanks TK.

Don't have a suggestion but I did want to mention that Rush did a fine verbal impersonation of Biden today. He has always done a great Clinton and a very good James Carville, but it is amazing that a guy who has been deaf since before the 2008 Election can do such an "on the money" voice impersonation of that doofus Biden.

daddy, I enjoyed Rush today also. Let's see, I've complimented Chris Wallace and Limbaugh today. Maybe I need a checkup. Or maybe this is how I am when the future looks optimistic.

October surprises so far:
I find this interesting. October Surprises are supposed to be things that are kept in the pocket until mid-October, and then sprung late enough in the election cycle that the other side can't adequately respond. Like dropping GW Bush's DUI a week or so before the 2000 election.

But, this time around, the Dems, who seem to be the ones who usually drop the October Surprises right before elections, are the ones who seem to be the ones who are suffering from them this time, and they aren't being dropped by the Republicans, but rather, are self-inflicted.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I want to make sure I understand the WH's talking point.
It's "we don't know what the hell is going on, but we'll lie about it whatever it is, reelect us", correct?

daddy

1 - 0 Yankers in the 3rd with 1 on and nobody out.

I see during catch-up that Radditz verbally interrupted Ryan last night 31 times, so she was only approximately 1/3rd as bad as Biden's 82 verbal interruptions, but of course that doesn't include the smirks and guffaws.

Melinda Romanoff

Ig-

Don't forget firing if right and suing if wrong.

Hey, Ichiro's got a dog just like the one I had until about a month ago, a Shiba Inu. She was almost 15, and we had to put her down. She had the same coloring as Ichiro's dog, too.

Captain Hate

Michael Medved made the point today that in no part of the 2 debates did the JEF or VP talk about any plans for the next 4 years, other than the pride of Scranton saying "Trust me" which is always said by somebody who doesn't deserve it.

Captain Hate

fdcol63, I already liked Ichiro and him having that dog only added to it.

A Reuters report, citing three anonymous sources, says that the Federal Trade Commission is on the verge of launching an antitrust lawsuit against Google. "Four of the FTC commissioners have become convinced after more than a year of investigation that Google illegally used its dominance of the search market to hurt its rivals, while one commissioner is skeptical," Reuters reports.

Seems to me that for the next few days, when we find ourselves in conversation about the Debate with any Dem's, that we have been given Carte Blanche to interrupt each and every sentence that comes out of their mouths for the first 82 times, and then we get to ask them why they are upset about our rude interruptions since they had no problem with Biden doing it, and how come they can't maintain their cool like Paul Ryan did.

Politico:

"Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.) – gone from Congress since June on a medical leave of absence – is now facing a new federal investigation into “suspicious activity” in his finances, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

According to the Sun-Times, federal investigators are looking into Jackson’s finances surrounding his House seat and the “possibility of inappropriate expenditures." This latest probe doesn’t involve the ethical troubles that had been surrounding Jackson in connection with allegations that he used official resources to try and win appointment to President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat, the Sun-Times reported.

The investigation had been active before Jackson took a formal leave of absence on June 10, according to the newspaper. Jackson’s office did not publicly disclose the lawmaker’s leave of absence until two weeks later."

CH, they're great indoor dogs because of their small size, they're relatively easy to crate train, and most don't bark. And they're very affectionate and love attention.

Downsides are that many can be extremely sensitive to and agitated by loud noise, thunderstorms, etc, and they can be pretty hyper. I got Nikita a few years before I got married and we had our son, and she was pretty territorial and jealous at first, and never got to the point where she really enjoyed playing around with children but got to where she "tolerated" him. Not sure that all are like that.

Sac Bee: "LAS VEGAS, Oct. 11, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- With the election less than one month away, Mitt Romney leads by 3 points over President Obama in the key battleground state of Nevada. Just prior to the debate in Colorado both candidates increased their presence in Nevada. Mitt Romney opened offices in Hispanic areas of Las Vegas while President Obama personally delivered pizza to his volunteers.

Obama is now suffering the fallout of last week's debate, which is demonstrated in a recent poll conducted by Dane & Associates. Just a week ago, this race was a dead heat, but now after the debate, Romney has moved to 49% to Obama's 46%. "It looks like the voters are making up their minds here in Nevada," says Tony Dane president of Dane & Associates. "Only 3 percent are undecided and 2% are voting for 3rd party candidates."

Lou Dobbs is having on John Bolton now and in the next segment will have 2 shrinks on to psychoanalyze Biden's smirks.

I wish Lou's Show got more play.

Bolton want's to know what is going thru the mind of Bill Clinton now that his wife Hillary has just been thrown under the bus. Sounds like Bolton and your post earlier Clarice are on the same page.

Bolton says that he thinks Biden has really opened this up and because of the players it will not be covered up like normal because it is a house divided. Not his words exactly but his thrust.

So glad to be really busy today as we move toward our final tax deadline of the year, that I couldn't keep up with breaking news here or anywhere else. Sure did help my blood pressure, which was dang near geyser-like last night.

We will have to hope that Crowley and Schieffer "help" Obama the way Raddatz "helped" Biden. The media elevated this administration and the media shall aid in their crashing back to earth.

'We're through the looking glass, hear people, black is white, white is black,'
So do I hate that fracking nazgul Oliver Stone, who was actually telling us his m.o.
Mitrokhin revealed the initial dezinformatya
scheme, and Max Holland went into greater detail on the matter.

The reason none of this makes sense, is it's not supposed to, we knew instinctively
this was an AQ attack, although Herridge,
and Lake and Gorman and Entous fleshed out the details, yet the administration,chooses
to lie, and obfuscate. We knew Iran may have a nuke by early next year, despite the 2007 NIE, and it will be as paradigm shifting as Russia's acquisition in 1949.

OT,

Had lunch with my liberal mom today. I did not bring up the election, but she did. She said that Obama is done and that she actually would not mind if Romney wins.

I was thinking "holy cow!" but kept it cool and said that I thought she would find that Romney is not the monster he is made out to be by the left. I mentioned his years of community service, his ability to work with Democrats in Mass, and his ability to be comfortable in the political center (yeah, I know, but like I said, I was trying not to spike the ball or scare her off).

It was a good, productive conversation. I'm pretty damn happy b/c 1) I don't like being at odds with my mom and 2) I think she's very representative of educated women her age who have lived in blue states and voted Dem all their lives.

daddy --"A White House Coverup"

Excellent segment that was on Lou's Show with Ambassador Bolton

He is calling it "a White House Coverup."

I suggest that we start using that specific language "A White House Coverup" to see if we can't help this honest meme get some traction.

derwill

--"a woman just called Mark Levin to tell him that three of her undecided female friends, who voted for Obama last time, after watching Biden's performance last night have decided to vote for Romney.--"

What I was saying--if I do say so myself. Biden came across as every smug, condescending male asshole boss, co-worker, ex-lover/husband that those women have encountered in their lives. Like nails on a chalkboard.

"holy cow" indeed, Porch. You did exactly the right thing. Don't embarrass them, gently encourage them.

Before you know it, they will have converted themselves and never look back.

Am I the only one who thinks "Al Qaeda" was a complete misnomer - a smokescreen and phony enemy - invented by someone in the Bush administration in order to avoid calling the lot of them run-of-the-mill jihadis? Does every terrorist have some sort of membership card to this so-called organization? Did Al Qaeda do the Beirut bombing, Cole bombing and Munich massacre?
