Can Biden keep his cool vs. fiery Ryan?
The Kansas City Star
Republicans know exactly what they want from Joe Biden in his debate tonight with Paul Ryan.
Please, please let Biden get amped up with one of his long-winded, shockingly caustic-sounding answer to some question asked of him.
In other words, let Biden make himself look foolish.
It certainly could happen.
Yes, we remember the “chains” gaffe.
And the more recent one about the middle class “suffering” the last four years - when President Barack Obama and Biden were in charge.
You can be sure the Republican debate prep team has worked with Ryan to see what lines of attack might goad Biden into an embarrassing answer.
It’s great strategy. In fact, after Obama’s disastrous debate last week against Mitt Romney, the GOP appears to have the upper hand when it comes to crafting excellent debate techniques in the 2012 election.
Meanwhile, as I posted earlier today, the Democrats will be hoping mightily that Ryan goes off message, and looks grumpy or even ill-informed answering some questions.
