Around 70 million people watched President Obama’s debate flame-out Wednesday night, and conservatives are hoping that Vice President Joe Biden next week will continue to be the gift that keeps on giving as he faces Paul Ryan in Danville, Kentucky. The president was too busy governing to prepare for his debate, but Biden’s handlers are certain not to repeat that mistake.

We’ve heard that debate preparation can be a real drag, and they don’t let you out to play. But just for fun, let’s take a peek behind the scenes at #BidenDebatePrep.

If Wednesday night proved anything, it’s that Biden very well could turn in a better performance than his boss. We have a feeling, though, that these previously prepared #GoreExcusesForBiden might come in handy.
