Is There a Better Wingman than Biden?

I think we can all agree V.P. Joe Biden owned Sen. Paul Ryan tonight.  It was a masterful performance, in my view blending common sense with a personal style that engendered him to Main Street throughout the night.

He effectively illustrated the lack of truth that has become a hallmark of the Romney campaign.  Every time Ryan offered up another misstatement, it landed in Biden’s wheelhouse and he used his Louisville slugger to knock it out of the studio.

These debates are generally an exercise in mental masturbation for those of us entrenched in our positions.  I loved Biden tonight and I’m sure the Romney supporters will spin the debate in their favor.  What I think was unique was the clarity with which Biden dismantled the spin machine that Ryan brought to the table.

That Biden’s tone and experience overwhelmed Ryan was apparent and I really do need to give props to Ryan for handling the ass whooping that he received with class and a modicum of composure.  I may have been reduced to tears had I been in Ryan’s position.

If I’m that voter on the fence, with an open mind, I’m pretty sure enough doubt was introduced into the forum to make me question not only Romney’s integrity vis-a-vis his wavering posititions, but his lack of clarity on his budget.  And don’t even get me started on Biden’s experience on foreign policy and military matters.  Ryan simply had no credibility on those issues and his master has none.  This was very apparent tonight.

Biden’s response to the final question on how his Catholic faith informed his political views, was a complex and masterful treatise on the Obama administration’s position on this and other social issues.

I, again am posting this at the termination of the debate before I am completely twisted by the spin machines so consider my opinions as such…
