Obama At The Debates
The outlook was quite rosy for the president that day
The polls showed just a tiny lead but the media had its say
So even though there seemed to be no need to play the game
To Denver went the candidates to rumble just the same.

Vice President Joe Biden's behavior at last night's debate proved one thing: Team Obama has given up trying to win over independent voters and is betting it all on their base. Mr. Biden's laughter, dismissive comments and smirks whenever Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) spoke was obviously an effort to placate those who react the same way when someone dares to point out President Obama's failures and offers alternatives.

Vice President Joe Biden gave another speech and therefore made another inappropriate comment. Appearing at a Minneapolis campaign event yesterday, Mr. Biden referred to Republican critics of Obama administration policies as "squealing pigs" and that's the sound byte that's getting all the media attention. Rude, crass and uncivil as it is; it's not the part of that speech journalists should be highlighting for voters.

The overall campaign slogan for President Barack Obama's re-election effort is Forward as in please don't look back at my record because I've failed miserably. His current two-day bus tour of northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania has a slogan too: Betting on America as in I'm betting I can get enough Americans to fall for empty promises and meaningless platitudes again in spite of my miserable record.

During a presidential primary fight one contender highlighted the inexperience of another by saying, "The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training." Of course that was Vice President Joe Biden speaking about his current boss President Barack Obama. Over the past 3 years the nation has learned just how right Mr. Biden was, yet now the Republican Party is flirting with making the same sort of mistake.
