October 12, 2012 - 2:33 pm | Category: Politics
In a debate the was certainly more lively than the first presidential meet, VP Joe Biden and Mitt Romney’s running mate Paul Ryan mixed it up on everything from the economic recovery and foreign policy to abortion on Thursday night in Danville, Kentucky.
Whereas President Obama was reserved in the presidential debate, Biden was lively, spoke forcefully and frequently challenged Ryan’s promises and plans. He often grinned widely or broke into laughter when Ryan spoke.
Ryan attacked the Obama administration’s handling of the economy and questioned its foreign policy.
Biden often countered with facts and figures and personal connections that have come from his years of public service.
While the pundits are still debating who won the only vice presidential debate, there was one clear-cut winner — Martha Raddatz of ABC News did a fine job keeping both candidates in check, questioning them on some of their claims and kept the interruptions at a minimum.Article Source
