VP debate tees up closing issues for Romney, Obama

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Joe Biden and Paul Ryan teed up pointed arguments on the economy, social policy and America's place in the world that President Barack Obama and GOP rival Mitt Romney now will drive forward into the campaign's final stretch.

With throngs of people already voting, Obama and Romney will try to answer questions that their running mates posed to the tens of millions of Americans who watched Thursday's hard-fought vice-presidential debate.

Biden, eager to make up for Obama's lackluster performance in his first debate with Romney, played the aggressor throughout.

Ryan came back at the vice president with harsh talking points, a flurry of statistics and a sharp economic warning that Obama will raise taxes on middle class Americans.

Old Joe wiped the floor with Howdy Doody.Tell the truth, if Romney died in office would you want that wet behind the ears jerk as your President, not me. I dont care for any of the candidates but ya gotta go with the lesser of 2 evils.

Poor Biden. So old and angry. Very sad. Laughing because he couldn't handle the debate with so little record to work with. It was rather embarrassing. I will vote for Romney because Obama has failed and doesn't understand business or foreign policy.
