No surprise, Biden says Obama won the presidential debate

Was Vice President Joe Biden watching the same debate as the rest of America tonight?

In a post-debate video posted on the Organizing for America website just after the debate, Biden told supporters, “It’s a good night tonight, folks.”

“If you just finished watching the debate like I did, I’m sure you’re as proud of President Obama as I am,” Biden went on to say, noting the president did a great job making the choice clear between the candidates.

But according to a CBS flash poll released a little less than an hour after the debate, only 22 percent of undecided Americans polled thought President Obama won the debate, while 32 percent thought neither candidate won. A majority, 46 percent, thought Romney won.

The vice president said Obama laid out “specific, concrete plans” for helping the middle class, keeping jobs in the U.S. and hiring more math and science teachers. Biden called it showing a commitment to moving forward, blaming “failed policies” of the past for the current economic situation, again ignoring the debt increases under the Obama administration.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s plan, according to Biden, was “fundamentally different.” The vice president accused Romney of creating a budget that would give tax cuts to the wealthy but increase taxes for the middle class. In response to Romney’s plan to repeal Obamacare, Biden said the former governor did not have an alternative plan that would provide for those with pre-existing conditions.

Yet again one of the main focuses of the Obama administration’s attacks was that another financial meltdown would result from Romney’s election. Biden alluded to the financial situation that faced Obama when he took office and he promised that that he and Obama would not let that happen again, neglecting to mention that the economy has gotten progressively worse over the past four years, not better.

At the end of his talk, Biden encouraged viewers to stay involved in the Democratic campaign and tell their friends to vote.

“But most of all, I think I want to say on behalf of the President, thank you for vouching for us, for putting your reputations on the line for us, for believing, as the president does and I do, that America’s best days are ahead of us,” he said.

Biden is right. America’s best days will come once Obama is out of office.

    Biden could not have been watching the same debate. His speech in the post-debate video was just as erroneous and off topic as President Obama’s debate against Romney. First of all, Obama laid no “concrete plans,” he only beat around the bush. Secondly, It seemed to me, as well as to Bill Maher (well-known liberal and Obama supporter), that Obama….errr ahhh mmm errr…needs his teleprompter. Like Biden said, President Obama did make the choice clear between candidates, vote Mitt Romney.
    Paul Ryan, a highly intelligent man, will more than likely rip Joe Biden apart in their debate. From the looks of it, the Democratic Party will most definitely make the choice between candidates more clear.
