Democratic strategists are eyeing the forthcoming debate between Vice President Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) with a mix of hope and nervousness in the wake of President Obama’s widely panned performance in his leadoff encounter with Mitt Romney Wednesday night.
On the plus side, some Democrats feel that a strong performance from Biden next Thursday could turn the page on the president’s near-debacle in Denver.
But they also worry that Biden’s legendary capacity to state his views in an inartful fashion could backfire.
Joe Biden’s “legendary capacity to state his views in an inartful fashion” backfiring?!?!? Oh, come on now? How could it backfire? Frankly, this um, well, this “legendary capacity” is, well, well, it’s just quite endearing. Most endearing. (H/t: Michelle Malkin, Buzzworthy.)
