Week of: October 15 – October 22, 2012
Coming on the heels of a strong and unexpected Romney performance in last week’s first debate against the President, additional pressure was on Vice President Joe Biden to deliver a performance that will either slow down or completely stop Romney’s recent momentum. Did he succeed?
Before the VP debate, I posted an article in which I discussed the Top 10 things that people should expect from the first and only sparring between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. In this week’s show, I break down many of those points and which ones were fulfilled, in addition to the effect that it may have heading into the 2nd Presidential debate next Tuesday in New York.
In front of an estimated audience of over 51 million people, was Biden able to slow or even stop Romney’s momentum? Did Paul Ryan hurt or help the campaign? What were some of the more memorable exchanges of the evening? All of these questions are answered, in addition to a little fact-checking in this post-debate wrap-up.
Bonus Content: I have included the full 90 minute audio version of the debate at the end of this week’s program. Therefore, if you did not see the debate or simply want to hear it again, you will be able to from beginning to end once the show ends.
Enjoy the show!
