I didn't watch it. I'm not voting D or R for president anyway, so nothing either one had to say would affect my vote. I hear it was a vigorous debate, so in that respect I'd say America won.

ryan was the best dummy the gop has walked out in a while. at least he knew one couldn't see Russia from their Alaskan backyard. He'd also read a book which is more than I can say for Sarah Palin even if the book is atlas shrugged. oh the pitty of the rich hoarders loosing the stuff gained from exploitation to the people they seek to economically suppress.

The media. All they have to do is broadcast the circus...

Both men accomplished what needed to be done. Biden is a 40-year veteran of D.C. politics - he's seen many like Ryan come and go. The debate odds were in Biden's favor and he proved them right. Biden out-debated Ryan, at least on technique alone. The GOP has no reason to find fault with Ryan's performance - he sparred well and hit his points. But Ryan was flat in tone and obviously rehearsed, and Biden spoke from experience and from his heart. Sentiment wins votes. The fact-checkers are now determining their truths.

The winner of this debate was the American people. We saw true discourse last night, thanks in great part to the moderator. Americans need to re-learn discourse, how to talk through problems, how to see this country as a co-operative venture, not a case of "my team versus your team." We have become a lazy citizenry and we need to snap out of it. Think of the children.

Personnally, I got sick and tired of watching vp biden set there and laugh and grin acting like a high school kid that was trying to make fun of Ryan. Very immature on bidens part. And the "dumb founded looks" that Biden would get on his face, was so see through, because you could tell Biden knew exactly what Ryan was saying to be true. biden needs to go to Hollywood. I was not impressed with biden at all. And there were some things I was not bimpressed with Ryan either.

Who found it acceptable that our VP said he didn't know our Ambassador asked for more security, or that of all places we would NEED security in that part of the world where obuma has assassinated many Al-queda leaders? What fool administration would leave our Ambassador unprotected and out to dry? This administration has no concept what reality is, and will be dumped shortly.

Props for Joe Biden giving a shout-out to Sarah Palin! About time someone in either party mentioned her.

It was a good debate. VP Biden was convincing in his statements and I'm glad he didn't allow Ryan to sit their and make false statements, but Ryan certainly showed why he is on the Romney ticket. I believe both stated their cases rather well. Nod goes to Biden, but it wasn't a slam-dunk win like Romney's over Obama.

Enjoyable debate. Lets hope the next two presidential debates are near as solid.

Why are these question and answer sessions being called a debate? Mr. Simons, now here is a topic to tackle in your Saturday column.

The media is a dumb as the two answering questions. There has been no debate!

And the moderators have no guts. Time limit up! Stop talking. Cut off the TV cameras. Then the candidates will shape up.

Debating with Crazy Uncle Jo' is like one commentator said, being trapped at a bar next to a 'know-it-all' drunk. His buffoonery turned off the independents they need to win. He also was found to be a liar again, and we all knew he was already a plagiarist.

Not sure if there was a winner here, but America was definitely the loser. Gaffe-a-Minute Joe Biden was allowed to turn what should have been an informative debate into a circus with his constant barrage of interruptions and prevarications. If debate demeanor is part of the criteria in judging this affair, then Biden was the clear loser.

All the finger wagging was a nice touch. Reminded me of my grandpa that has dementia.

All joe did was set there showing off his new dentures, looking like he wanted to sell you a used something-----

Eddie Munster got his milkshake eaten. There were two adults on that stage and Ryan wasn't one of them.

My FAV was when Ryan told Biden he should know about putting his foot in it............

The best moment was Joe catching the duplicitous lying Ryan slamming the stimulus program in the debate despite his prior pimping for stimulus funds on behalf of his wealthy constituents.

I loved the way Joe smiled while losing his shoes up that weasel's rear end.

The President should pay heed and come out swinging in the next debate. It could be a game changer. If he doesn't, Romney could very well capture the White House.

The American people won, compliments of Joe Biden.
