He failed the stress test but the party heavy hitters feel obligated to save him no matter how badly he f^&*s up and can’t make the case.
We all know that left to his own devices, he’s going to screw up again and put all our economic lives in jeopardy. It’s just that the party is so invested in him.
So, we see the spectacle of Joe Biden spending a good portion of the debate propping Obama up on foreign policy. At some point, he ditched the script and just defended his party.
He scored on abortion. It’s perfectly fine if you have a religious objection to it as long as you don’t seek to impose that religious doctrine on others. He was a little vague on social security. I would have liked to have heard a definitive stance against raising the retirement age. It’s unclear if that is Obama’s policy speaking or Biden’s.
Afghanistan was a wash. We should be out of there by now. Otherwise, Biden owned foreign policy. He smiled and laughed to mock Ryan but he could have been just funnin’ with the young’un. Biden excels in this area.
I think he kicked Ryan’s ass on the economy and how Ryan’s plan would hurt the middle class. He was very good at selling the pitch, addressing the camera, and by extension, us, directly.
It would be great if we could just declare the Obama presidency insolvent and nationalize the office for a better candidate. I’d vote for Biden in a pinch. Too bad he’s not on the top of the ticket.
