Joe Biden found a way to be both a participant and the guy in the Barcalounger at home yelling at the television. He interrupted Paul Ryan, moderator Martha Raddatz, and even himself with interjections, sighs, and quips. He appealed to the heavens, he looked to the floor. With all the activity, he surely shed calories. When he wasn’t engaged in those antics, Biden laughed and smiled to himself as if Ryan had sold him something illegal that he’d just consumed. At times his treatment was so dismissive, he seemed only a few threads of restraint from reaching across the table and patting Ryan on the head.

Biden’s performance was aimed at one thing: painting the Romney and Ryan agenda as a flim-flam operation. He did it with style as much as substance.

1. Instead of a pat on the head

Biden should have simply told Ryan to grow up. Lyin' Ryan spouted lie after lie last night.

2. That was my brother home in his barcalounger......

he called me several times he was very highly enthused, normally he only plants his ass there to watch sports & NASCAR.

Thousands of the less engaged across this country sat and watched last night and they learned something, that the only guy fighting for them was sitting in the barcalounger beside them.
