He smiled at the wrong time, such as when discussing the Libya tragedy. Hard to see the funny angle of that story!
He interrupted Rep Ryan hoping to distract or make him angry. (Some of us remember the same tactic by VP Gore with Gov GW Bush back in 2000)
He was determined to prove to the Dem base that their ticket has a pulse. He probably did accomplish that goal but it may have come at the price of the independents who are not motivated by slogans and "class warfare talking points".
Worse than that, he was wrong on big issues:
VP Biden was incorrect about the Libya story. He threw the intelligence community under the bus and avoided the real issue, i.e. what about the Obama administration's incoherent explanation of the incident?
VP Biden forgot to say that he voted to authorize force in Iraq. This is what he said in 2002:
"“We have no choice but to eliminate the threat. This is a guy who is an extreme danger to the world.”
“He must be dislodged from his weapons or dislodged from power.” (NBC)
VP Biden was wrong about the BO-Care mandates and Catholics:
"Today the Catholic Bishops have issued a statement putting the lie to Biden’s whopper:
Last night, the following statement was made during the Vice Presidential debate regarding the decision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to force virtually all employers to include sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion, in the health insurance coverage they provide their employees:VP Biden may have persuaded a few Dems that he could stand up and fight after Pres BO's very weak performance.
“With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact.” (PowerLine)
I don't think that the polls will change much after this debate. At the same time, I do think that most viewers will agree with me that VP Biden reminds you of that unpredictable uncle who doesn't always control his mouth.
