I have heard the pundits say that Biden's laugh and smirks are coming across like Gore's sighs and that he should controll them....I don't think he can controll them. You can't automatically turn off your body language, it's ingrained. He is just physically showing what he is really thinking...he has no respect, no manners, no humility at all. He is a clown.

In a Manichean world of good and evil, he was the ugly.

His statements last night sounded like they were lifted directly from the comments section on Huff Po.

Barack Obama's lackluster debate performance last week has dramatically altered the presidential race in Florida, with Mitt Romney opening up a decisive 7 percentage point lead, according to a new Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9/Miami Herald poll. The survey conducted this week found 51 percent of likely Florida voters supporting Romney, 44 percent backing Obama and 4 percent undecided. That's a major shift from a month ago when the same poll showed Obama leading 48 percent to 47 percent — and a direct result...
