Why so serious? Biden’s debate grimace creeps out, angers viewers

Is there something funny, Joe? We’ve been having fun at the vice president’s expense all week in the lead-up to tonight’s debate, but things have turned serious over the last couple of days as the State Department has broken ranks with the White House and admitted that there was no protest which led to the deaths of four Americans in Libya on Sept. 11.

Vice President Biden, though, just couldn’t stop smirking as Paul Ryan called out the administration on its massive security failures overseas. We think we’ve finally found something creepier than Jim Messina’s #ForAll pose.

Well, it certainly looks insane.


Well, that didn’t take long. Biden’s smirk has its own Twitter account.

Biden’s smirk has evolved into laughter, but not everyone is in on the joke. Ryan fans aren’t amused, and even some Obama supporters are unsure how Biden’s condescending approach is playing with the audience.

    What the hell is Biden on ?

    Apparently he doesn’t realize this debate is serious business.

    • Rich Davie

      You can always tell when one of the leftist lunatic fringe come on to the Twitchy site by all of the “vote down” numbers that suddenly appear on comments that are blatantly obvious facts to sane and rational individuals.

    Biden is slurring now, and blubbering. Omg this is the worst thing I’ve ever seen.
    Paul Ryan is a true gentleman, calmly putting up with that smirking clown.

  • nc

    That smirky smile is a sign of nerves. He was an emotional wreck. Not exactly comforting coming from your Vice President.

    I really hated how he kept calling Ryan a liar, and when Ryan tried to respond, Raddatz would interrupt and change the subject.

    Joe Biden’s scenery chewing last night typifies the reason millions of adults and children are creeped out by clowns!

  • Julie Wilson

    Joe needs a meeting. The first step is admitting you have a problem. Not sure what he was drunk on besides power and ego — maybe nothing more than that– but someone really needs to punch him in the face and sober him up.

  • $30756787

    What will Joe tell the Messiah when he gets to the WH tomorrow? I’m sure Obama was at a fundraiser, or playing night golf. You know, the REAL important stuff. LOL

  • weRbroke

    Ryan reminded me of my days as a bartender…annoyed by drunk people making asses out of themselves, but letting them keep it up, and then showing them the door before they puke on the floor.

  • http://twitter.com/swtchat BlujayUSA

    I’ll be very scared if something happens to Obama and Joe Biden will take over. He’s not normal.

  • http://twitter.com/swtchat BlujayUSA

    Paul Ryan couldn’t get his points across w/o Joe Biden interupting and distracting him, so rude!!! I couldn’t hear what Ryan had to say! JBiden was so weird!!!

  • Guest

    Those were serious issues and no laughing matter. Does Joe Biden thought that Vice-Presidential Debate was a joke?

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      He looked drunk, so I don’t think he knew what was going on.

  • http://www.facebook.com/charlene.rakhshani Charlene Rakhshani

    After watching Biden laugh, scoff and mock Ryan, I have very little respect for the politician. Having personal experience with a compulsive liar, that scoffs and mocks anyone who disagrees with him or exposes his exaggerations…..I understand these behaviors. His strategy was to give the ‘IMPRESSION’ that Ryan had no clue what he was talking about, so the ignorant, uninformed voter would think Biden was ‘right’ and therefore Ryan was wrong. Go check out some of the other places people comment, and you’ll find an entire group of people that drank the koolaid.

  • Michael Rice

    These debates, and perhaps nothing short of the end of the world, will change how the base of each candidate votes.
    I do, for the first time in a long while, however, believe the independents are seeing the national democratic party for what they have become….race baiting, American hating, hyocritical, lying, blame gaming idiots.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    I watched as much as I could before I had to turn it off. Biden is the most disrespectful little furless weazel I have ever seen! He reminds me of a debate we did in my freshman year of high school. That is his mentality, if even that.

  • $34609613

    Biden did exactly what Obama wanted him to do. However, it’s going to backfire on him, because the majority of the pubic is finding Biden’s performance less favorable because of his bad attitude and disrespectful demeanor during the debate. Between his cackles, grimaces, and his rude interrupting outbursts, the majority of the public is seeing him less likable and Ryan’s performance more admirable. Obama may be laughing now, but in a few days I don’t think he is going to like what he hears in the news.

    • $34609613

      I wanted to add: Once the public absorbs this debate over the next week, I do think it will hurt Obama. First they will react with calling Ryan a liar of course, and not admitting they lost the debate, which most polls show Ryan won, even CNN.

      Then of course you have a majority of the blacks that do not care at all what Obama and his thug camp crony’s do, no matter how corrupt, no matter how much of the real Obama is revealed, they don’t care about all that. All they care about is that he is black. And, will vote for him on that basis only. It’s not about substance to them, it’s about skin color. Which is the most ridiculous mentality that reflects just how prejudice those people are. Yes I said, those people! I’m sick and tired of them rioting and looting every time they don’t get their way. Now they threaten to do that if Obama doesn’t win. They need to change the law. As soon as people start getting shot for doing that crap, they will think twice about doing it. I’m not afraid to speak my mind. I am Native American! Obama made promises to us too, that he did not keep. He is all talk and show. So people of other races need to play that same game. If you don’t have a reason to vote for Romney, vote for him because he is white and be proud to say that. There is a reverse discrimination going on against you whites and it’s BS!
      It is ok for blacks to have black entertainment channel. It’s Ok for blacks to have United Negro College fund, and the NAACP and even the National black Police officers Organization. The blacks thrive on prejudism and the segregate themselves by doing all these things. What if white people did these things? It’s ok for Obama to send money to black farmers to “pay them back for years of discrimination , and it’s ok for him to send money to “low educated” black children. What if a white president sent money to white kids? What about the Native American children starving on reservations and low education? What about all the other children of different colors here in the U.S.? What about the all the other farmers struggling?
      It’s BS, and Obama being president has just caused more division by using the media to inflame the blacks, Like the Zimmerman case, in which the media took Zimmerman’s words and cut and paste them around to make him look like he was making a racial statement. I’m not saying Zimmerman is innocent, but everyone knows he was just answering the dispatchers question, “What color is the individual?” Zimmerman said, “he looks black.” Now Zimmerman is suing that network and I hope he gets filthy rich and splits the money with the Martin family. Believe me, I love that we have people of different color. The world would be boring if otherwise. Each race offers something beautiful to this world. There are good people all over the world.
      I have a blog in which I interpret Obama’s dream, I hope you will read it:http://bearclawws.blogspot.com/

  • Nica Capistrano

    His smirks and laughs are nothing but to conceal that Ryan got him. Put aside politics, i wouldn’t vote for someone who is not capable of listening. All he did last night is interrupt, raise his voice louder when Ryan tries to address people and talks about his plans.

    you repubs got your ass kicked last night.Here come the malkin and fox spin.Face it obama wins ohio it’s over baby hahah

    The Shining had Jack Nicholson. The Dems have Joe Biden.

    The country is in trouble. We have a 16 trillion dollar debt. The economy is in the tank. I’d like to ask Joe Biden, What’s so funny?

    When your wife starts talking to the TV, saying, “Just shut up and let the other guy answer!”, you know you’ve lost the female audience.

    The debate in substance? A draw.
    In style? A Veep who is not to be taken seriously.
