…Obama’s campaign is brimming with confidence about the match-up between Biden and Ryan, arguing that the real game-changer is on their side.
In speeches Monday and Tuesday in the swing states of North Carolina and Virginia, Biden cranked up the rhetoric, highlighting the Obama campaign’s belief that it has the momentum in the race — not Romney and Ryan.
Senior aides close to Biden insist the vice president can attack Ryan and Romney with force and his characteristic folksiness, all while charming a crowd with humor and self-effacement.
“He’s real confident talking about Ryan because he knows him. It’s an easy thing for him to do,” said one senior adviser to Biden. “He can criticize Ryan without being personal about it.”
Question that needs to be answered: What kind of dope are the dopes on Team Obama smoking to believe this? Being “personal about it” is not going to be Biden’s problem when he faces Paul Ryan head-on; it’s having his facts, statistics, and numbers together when it comes to debating Ryan on not just fiscal issues, but any other issues regarding governance in general. Seriously? Biden is a walking, talking SCOAMF, and everybody knows it. The fact that Team Obama even has the BALLS to come out and make this claim is laughable at best.
I, for one, believe the VP debate will be one of the most watched in history. Hell, if I had money, I’d invest in a pay-per-view event and try to schedule an additional debate just for that reason – no moderator, just cards that list campaign issues to allow the candidates to go at it, one-on-one, with a *time limit.
*Said time limit would probably be shaved off very early with Biden begging to tap out claiming a need for mercy.
As a side note, I’ve been on a self-imposed hiatus lately, after having moved back home to Oklahoma and beginning a search for employment. However, the announcement of Paul Ryan being added to the GOP ticket for 2012 is something that has me so jazzed, I can no longer stay un-engaged. Go #RomneyRyan2012!
