Hello everybody I'm Gerri Willis call -- the clash of the running mates Joseph Biden and Paul Ryan came out swinging in their first and only debate last night.
Leading the Obama campaign praising Biden -- -- happy warrior but others trying bullet so who want.
Let's ask -- some powers Daily Beast columnist and Fox News contributor and Brad Altman a former advisor for president George W.
Bush welcome to you both great to have -- vote here.
Have willows or -- person you drew blood who want.
Actually saw the whole thing is being kind of a drop -- -- in the sense that.
I don't think anybody really changed their vote based on -- as you could make critiques of both of -- Candidates but I think -- -- and if it didn't really she just didn't didn't change any thing.
Brad -- he effect.
Although it may not the change things too much in the race I think stylistically.
Biden was terrible he was he was.
-- -- he was weird his premises is laughter was was not in keeping with the seriousness of the debate but it was disrespectful I think there's -- Yes absolutely I also think that Brian scored some points on Joseph Biden Joseph Biden was less than truthful on Libya he was left.
And I want to -- isn't it a second I do wanna ask -- said.
About Biden demeanor because I have been the idea I found it off putting.
Although laughing it seem like he thought that.
You know -- -- should have nuclear weapons nadir they are wasn't it wasn't a threat to the world I couldn't figure -- what he was doing how did you respond.
Yes it it -- in -- -- Created the times in his laughing but it was clearly a debate strategy and the purpose of the strategy was.
Not to attract people like you actually was try it was for people to were upset with President Obama for not being strong -- after -- debate against Romney.
And they wanted to see.
Biting come out and and basically.
Go on the offensive be aggressive you dismiss it be condescending believe it or not and I think I work if you -- that he say that have battle but don't ever want to -- did a great job.
But I feel like he was very strong let's let's move on to Libya for a second biggest.
-- are some interesting things being said today.
About the vice president president's remarks about the intelligence community and what they have been able to provide to the white -- -- specific -- Biden.
-- -- We weren't told her -- know what want more security I was speaking directly for himself and for the president he meant the White House.
It over four hours of testimony the testimony that you just referenced.
The other day no one.
Who testified about this matter suggested that requests for additional security were made to the president or the White House.
-- who's got it right here -- -- -- he's got it right the American people have a right they're not buying the story.
This White House is change stories first it was the YouTube video that it was what happening in in in Egypt.
Then they they claim it was not a terrorist act and they claim it is one thing's for sure.
Jay Carney said two weeks afterwards that it was evident that it was a terrorist attack what did it become evident because evident means apparent.
Easy to understand very for everyone to see why that why you're seeing what we should -- what we thought.
-- you heard this last night Biden was saying look we didn't get the information we need we didn't know what was going on and now today the White House saying.
I he's just speaking for himself we have we really can't you know what we don't know nothing about that who's right here.
Well what he was saying was he he was saying we.
He didn't know right now you can take that different ways I think -- sound -- when he said we he meant leave the administration.
Which of course is not true because the State Department -- when that.
Was in public testimony.
So it's so -- that I think it is like possibility that he didn't know that that happened in the testimony that's what I would like someone to ask is was he unaware that there had been public testimony sworn testimony.
-- -- And I think -- he.
Because to me he was saying.
Levy administration did not tell like he was saying -- Joseph Biden meet for -- our president a -- biggest auto market is an idiot.
The idea that can Obama ever would have known about embassy security it's kind of silly just it's -- who cares it's irrelevant what matters is whether the State Department knew about it.
And sell side I think they're now trying to just walk -- back because I think he really meant nobody knew about it.
Very -- you know let's -- Bryant for a second because.
I side he did a great job and I wanna know what you thought about whether he held his -- -- not here's right and that just get a sense of -- he didn't see the debate.
-- -- from similar counts he's from Scranton Pennsylvania I'm from Janesville Wisconsin.
You know the unemployment rate -- -- is today sure do it's 10% you know you know was the -- guys -- -- eight point 5%.
That's how it's going all around America.
Book you know Regis look innocent that's not how it's going to -- -- Spread.
-- -- I think Brian did very well not only did he do well -- economy did well on Medicare Medicaid Social Security he did well on jobs.
He went toe to toe with the vice president.
On the military and foreign policy that was supposed to be is weakest link that he was able to hold his own I think he did extremely well.
It considering the demeanor of Biden and the fact that he was interrupted about 82 times.
Cursing you know we took a look at at Biden and his comments to when he came to the numbers he had the hardest time.
Just drilling down to specifics he corrected himself at least four times on numbers and when he came to getting to specifics on.
The war in Afghanistan.
Iran he just couldn't go there I was kind of shocked that his performance what was going on there.
I actually thought his performance was pretty typical except for of the it that the hyper aggressive -- Any actually got very specific on some things where he was quite specifically wrong.
I like for example saying that.
Tax cuts would be you know raising the level of of the tax cuts to.
A million dollars is now where they would start which is not the Obama administration's position -- has been and they say today it still is not so.
My you know I think -- he.
Sometimes plays -- analysts that the facts alone we usually call them -- C Brian.
That Obama campaign calls from lies when Mitt Romney does.
I just want to say I'm Ryan I just -- disagree I don't think you get a good job I think that he was pretty lackluster and he should have pushed back up at the vice president yes -- vice president was behaving.
I think -- -- -- manner but he should be ready fat and I think that he looks very weak he should've he should push back as -- like I got a month later the.
The moderator was complicit in the fact that she did not.
Give the vice president of the kind of scolding he deserved when he started his antics and had -- had done that effectively and surely I think that might have ended it.
Well it when people complain about the moderator you just can't deal with what the world of the -- and make the most of it.
Well I understand yeah Africa that's a great job guys thank you made fantastic points appreciate your time have a great weekend.
