Dems hope Biden can blunt Romney momentum post-debate:

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.)



  1. You must go see today’s Day by day cartoon. It sums this up so nicely!

  2. If they’re pinning their hopes on a good performance by “Plugs” Biden, they’re even more delusional and desperate than I thought.

  3. Yes, everyone watch the Biden-Ryan debate, so Biden’s effect of turning Obama’s campaign around is maximized!

  4. Frankly, I’m impressed that Obama has enough confidence in Uncle Joey to let him out of his attic room over the West Wing.

    As my wife said when I read this out, “Good luck with that.”

  6. Now that Obama got his ass handed to him, I think the liberal press is going to portray the Ryan-Binden debate as a victory for Biden, no matter how poorly he performs.
