Tonight, the Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan will be broadcast across the all networks, cable news channels and will be streamed live on YouTube™ and other internet sites.
The topics will be foreign and domestic policy. This debate is of profound interest both nationally and internationally.
Marc A. Thiessen, a fellow with the American Enterprise Institute and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, broke the news on September 10, 2012 that “during his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB [presidential daily briefing] just 536 times—or 43.8 percent of the time.”
Three days ago, Thiessen clearly defined a weapon for Ryan to use against the Vice President in tonight’s debate: “Biden is fond of pointing out Romney and Paul Ryan’s lack of foreign policy experience. And it’s true, Biden does have a lot more experience than the GOP nominees—experience at being wrong.”
Thiessen on Biden’s bin Laden hypocrisy:
“Yet today it is Biden—the lone opponent of immediate action to kill bin Laden—who is painting Romney as unfit for office because he allegedly would have opposed it. There is, of course, no evidence that Romney would not have ordered the bin Laden raid. But we now know for certain that, were it up to Biden, the raid would not have gone forward.”
“Of course, Biden’s opposition to the bin Laden operation is not surprising. The fact is Biden has a near-perfect record of being wrong about almost every major foreign policy question that the United States has faced in the past three decades. He supported the nuclear freeze in the 1980s, opposed ballistic missile defense and warned of a new arms race if the United States withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (we did, and no arms race ensued). He opposed aiding the Nicaraguan democratic resistance that helped roll back communism in our hemisphere, the Reagan defense buildup that bankrupted the Soviet Union, the first Gulf War that liberated Kuwait, and the 2007 surge that turned back the insurgency and defeated al-Qaeda in Iraq. With this record, it is no shock that Biden opposed the killing of bin Laden as well. But it takes chutzpah for Biden to publicly castigate Romney for his imaginary opposition to the bin Laden operation, when Biden actually opposed the bin Laden operation.”
Pass the popcorn. I'll take another Milk Dud.If Biden dares to repeat his now famous line, “GM is alive, and Bin Laden is dead,” Ryan can simply answer, “Bin Laden wouldn't be dead if you had your way, Joe.”
