A smiling Joe Biden managed to trump Paul Ryan in the Vice Presidential debate. I think Biden was faced with no choice but to be aggressive after a lethargic performance by President Obama in the first debate. Biden's smirks were disparaging to what Congressman Ryan had to say. Even though there was much made of Biden and his demeanor, he wasn't called out on it by Ryan and this made him effective according to Donald Trump.
The vice presidential debate is very important of course, but it doesn't get as much activity in the Twitter verse as the debates between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Obama was much more energetic in the Town Hall-style second debate and it was important for him to put up a great performance as he was under tremendous pressure.
On a lighter note, it was a lot of fun watching the funny speeches of Mitt Romney and President Obama at "The Al Smith Dinner" in the Big Apple. Obama was at his comical best starting off with "Everyone, please take your seats otherwise Clint Eastwood will yell at them." Romney who spoke earlier made me laugh quite a bit too with lines like "Vice President Biden could smile at anything" and "Polls show Obama leading from behind."
The one-liners were great and served to lighten up the mood heading into the third and final debate. Still, both candidates have hit the campaign trail with President Obama taking shots at his opponent by claiming that he has "Romnesia."
Monday night is going to be big with the third debate in Boca Raton, Florida.
