So who "won" the VP debate? While Ryan proved to be more informed on some issues than his running-mate, did VP Biden score by proving that the Romney/Ryan ticket offers only criticism and NO concrete solutions?
While I must admit that Ryan was no "Sarah Palin", it seemed throughout the debate that he was hampered by his own and Mitt Romney's past statements about "makers" and "takers" ... Much of the debate was centered on foreign policy. Ryan tried (and partly succeeeded) in trying to second-guess the Obama people on the Benghazi tragedy, but - even when asked several times by the moderator to do so - failed to give specifics about what a Romney/Ryan sdministration would do. He tried to back away from the earlier statements of both about active involvement in Syria and Iran, and Joe Biden's inside knowledge of diplomatic realities trumped him every time. Biden's passionate attacks upon Ryan's budget plan and his efforts to replace Medicare with a "voucher" plan and to "privatize" Social Security were devastating. Biden scored BIG!
