Well in about 48 hours Paul Ryan and vice president Joseph Biden will square off for the one and only vice presidential debate.
At Centre College in Danville Kentucky.
-- Democrats are hoping and praying that Joseph Biden will help turn things around for the Obama campaign.
But can they count on Joe's track record.
Standout shot -- City of Hope.
God love you went -- my talking about.
I tell you what you make -- everybody else stand up though well.
Thank you doctor trafford thank you chancellors -- -- doctor paper and change.
-- What you all back in chains.
I can justify.
Raises taxes in the middle class has been buried.
The last four years.
How in lord's days and they justify.
I think the American bar -- I didn't -- if -- keg party Eric.
Joseph Biden is the one person I would look to to help me say that if the we're going down -- known was -- to attend but I don't know about rescuing the Democratic Party with the debate.
Not that I'm not sure it's it's gonna change things a lot but I will tell you give him credit give Joseph Biden credit he's been studying spent the last few days six days in all of somewhere in the undisclosed bunker somewhere but.
He'll be prepared -- know the numbers but here's the difference Paul Ryan understands numbers he did Joseph Biden will know the numbers Paul Ryan in the stands and there is no comparison when you put two people together that know -- topic and one that -- no one knows it one understands it.
Bryant will will teach him a lot of things about the budget in a body -- the economy.
Come there's an old.
They delighted that it Damien he should know the numbers because he's been an office I think longer than me the united.
Actually been alive.
But I do you think that he has an advantage because as -- points -- he knows the numbers and he was forced even defend his plans to his own party so just like -- he gets out there without the filter of the media and he can explain to seniors and in plain and he did very well in the debates in the democratic primary in 2008.
He's a very he's a skilled politician really held accountable for anything that he says which I can't explain.
But think about Ryan for a second this is a guy who has won reelection -- seven times in a very moderate district in Wisconsin.
He is a good retail politicians actually been very good out on the stump didn't get a lot of coverage but Thursday night I think.
And I get my milk does in my popcorn ready it'll be a great night don't we find no matter what the do you think Brenda bar is higher or lower -- because people go all crazy uncle JO.
But then at the same time the pressure is on because Obama failed the other night so now they're looking to -- is a high bar a low bar.
Really high it up to Joseph Biden stopped the bleeding and there's -- tremendous -- And even after the jobs numbers who -- posit that the president they're counting on Joseph Biden not only to answer Paul Ryan's questions but the wants to present Obama did not answer last week.
And that's the preparation it's taking six days.
I am not sure he's up to it on foreign policies got the experience Paul Ryan's got to step up knocked out for -- foreign policy him but the show he's competent.
Workers -- about Joseph Biden to get inside the numbers.
The -- people living with for 1215 years that made -- chairman as a young guy -- an -- all of the Republicans that's going to be too much to get out of the.
By studying for it could come to soothe the burn your five I was going to be I wanna EMS unit that they don't I don't I -- I was -- there was -- bleeding in the -- and I thought about that which is said he stood several hundred.
But -- Bryant deliver these numbers on the wrong side -- are still right where he may get elected in my district.
I think Joseph Biden you -- Joseph Biden of politics 35 years you take one minute of his groups here and make that funny it's a funny joke.
He's one of those still politicians in America he's gonna take this -- the wood -- And I think he's got to expose these guys what they are which is a problem to -- -- We'll just don't get something else and I mean that the Obama campaign right now is in desperate nation mother panic mode right now -- starts at five point lead turn into three or four point.
Deficit they need and the step up and do something.
Today is Brian -- not well and that will they might be and they also stop the slide at least might be relying on the -- now to jump up to and help them do their their dirty work take a listen they're getting a little bit hostile and an interview the Paul Ryan had with one reporter.
Shows the media's -- Think he would compile.
This country's crime problem.
No I mean if you take a look at the gun -- we at -- president Obama's -- more guns.
Good stronger and have I have to go offshore just what we financially and enforce our laws did it with me we have -- we have lots of laws that are being properly enforced need -- enforce these laws.
But the best thing that helped prevent violent crime in the inner cities is -- opportunity yours.
OK so we cut that that it goes on -- where the reporter gets.
More and more hostile and eventually the Press Secretary pulls it so are we get to see the media start to step up if the Obama campaign's -- even more often -- a -- good interviews out of local media but if they think they're gonna win a Pulitzer Prize out of that they're in trouble.
In addition to that.
Here's a problem that Paul Ryan -- he's smarter than everybody else in the room.
And if it comes across as if he knows he's smarter than everybody else in the room -- can look smug and arrogant there's somebody else and politics that you -- that problem.
But so I think I heard -- but does his name -- with Iraq -- I couldn't get the event that they I think that Ryan at well -- and -- have a little bit of self deprecating humor will be a little bit deferential to the senior statesman.
Biden and then he will until -- on subsidies.
It just what -- quickly.
I can't but she gets rocket witnessing this thing is it panic mode is -- the bleeds over its settled down -- well yes it is settled that you have you have this I don't.
That somehow this is gonna continue on every day and people are making up their mind let's watch not every day in and out of the -- I want it to neighbor at.
-- -- Just the regular -- great -- Seth Meyers he said is there have been more exciting than Joseph Biden thinking it's up to him to get the lead back.
It's -- time when it's -- instead of it or not I had just based not gonna matter one bit.
But either way if we -- roll the tape from last week our -- Bob Beckel said that last week's debate.
Wouldn't matter at all either delegates and take that with a triple helping of salt.
