-- fifteen million future seniors determine how their Medicare delivered of them.
Is -- a fifteen bureaucrats deciding what if where when they get it.
Vice President Biden to penalize her -- death panel argument from Sarah Palin -- seems -- vice president of the beta later this kind of stuff about Apple's.
We're live in Danville Kentucky where just a short time ago the first and only vice presidential debate concluded.
And joining me now somebody who was won't mention by the vice president tonight that is former Republican vice presidential -- nominate.
Governor Sarah Palin governor welcome back to program.
Thanks so much -- I let's get your initial thoughts I don't think -- -- Joseph Biden smiled as uncontrollable -- In your debate and -- I think it was is rude and condescending.
I'm hearing from a lot of people on Twitter emails all over the place -- this did not go over very well tonight your thoughts.
Well I believe that Joseph Biden was sentenced as the attack dogs in this debate to compensate for president Obama's just atrocious.
I showing in his own debate where he was aloof and arrogant and disconnected and really disengaged with what death is very important to the American voter.
And that was -- that representation of a bombing in his own debate last week so.
I believe that Joseph Biden was sent -- -- try to compensate.
For that that really tough format -- for someone like Paul Ryan or anybody else up against Joseph Biden when the moderator.
A -- one candidate to absolutely run rough shot over the conversation over the opponent.
That's a tough format it reminded me I just told Neil Cavuto of watch it a must stocks run across the tundra with somebody underfoot and in this case.
When it came to us dial it was Paul Ryan underfoot.
Because of the moderator allowing Biden to duty in Iraq -- to kind of take control of the conversation.
I would I would say that maybe there's a lesson be learned here is that -- Martha have a gets married again that probably Paul Ryan -- go to a wedding.
Which I thought was wrong in the first place -- as an obvious conflict of interest.
And it was interesting that every time she seen in Iraq was well two.
-- Joseph Biden and shut down Paul Ryan but I don't really an impact of the debate.
Some things that might have gone unnoticed governor that I want to get your thought someone Joseph Biden talked about all of -- down on America they bet against America.
Holding hostage was another term that he used.
And that's -- you know he's working for president and often lectures the country on civility.
I wanted to get your take on those particular terms that he -- -- -- the vice president.
You know -- that -- -- type rhetoric that did not go over well I believe with those who are rational American voters just wanting to deal with facts and what the true state of the union is and we know that the state of the union.
Is not very good right now because of the failed policies of Obama and Biden I think what you're gonna see tonight -- Along with that in eighteen rhetoric of Joseph Biden is what you're gonna see as a result of that is the mainstream media tomorrow morning.
Will probably want to give a quote -- quote we ended.
To Joseph Biden based on style because Joseph Biden came across as quite passionate -- having used.
Rhetoric like you just mentioned.
Unfortunately Joseph Biden is quite passionate about all the wrong things he's passionate about growing government assuming the government.
Is the answer whereas Paul Ryan and worst -- perhaps.
I believe more of pulled together but what Paul Ryan was trying to explain is that.
The Republican platform is built on this notion of -- -- the individual.
A -- small businesses the middle class just the average every.
The fruits of our labor is and then re distribute it.
According to some.
Far -- -- politician's priorities.
Well you know I -- but there -- certain lines and it's all very very interest in actually got some audience reaction tonight and you know we got to build our cars and -- -- that we got no you know.
Have all Windmills built in China and ninety billion dollars that will wasted on so called green energy jobs there where the five million jobs that they had for promised.
The unemployment Reagan's in Scranton Pennsylvania -- went up significantly point five to.
You know it's very interest thing.
You know when the piggy bank Obama -- line and hand in the cookie jar and and then of course he laid out the facts that America's not better off than it was four years ago fewer Americans working six trillion dollars in debt.
And that that he's offering a very different.
Vision in a very serious very methodical very intelligent way to the American people one of the country want.
Right what you're suggesting there is the substance of the arguments made tonight how important -- substance was not so much this -- I honestly think at this stage.
Of the race people are not so obsessed with.
Who's gonna come across as more telegenic or more passionate.
-- based on the words the terminology that they use but what is the substance.
What's behind there.
Their -- their policies what is their own record what I was hoping was that part Ryan would have the opportunity to bring up Joseph Biden's energy record and how he's been so opposed.
Two domestic drilling of our own -- -- in development here on.
So within our own stories you know -- was Joseph Biden who.
Thirty some years ago actually voted against the trans Alaska oil pipeline which has dumped eighteen billion barrels -- Good clean energy into American markets and yet Joseph Biden opposed it back then -- still oppose this tapping our own -- is today and that is why you see that cost of energy so sky high.
Every good every service in America.
Well all I can say is they can't wait to get back to our studio tomorrow night and -- -- Joseph Biden and his facial expressions and all throughout the debate.
I think that'll be the big story.
By the time we get back that was what is the Paula saw that I had Ryan ahead.
Every focus group that I'm hearing from did not like the tone.
The arrogance in eruption of the vice president so we're gonna watch very closely Governor -- great to see as always thank you so much for being with us.
Thank you Tom let me remind you one thing to develop but the truth that's told with bad intent -- be all eyes one can't advance and when Joseph Biden.
Told some truths about -- death panels that he told it out of context and with any intention to Qaeda.
-- what what the true meaning and and the truth behind that the policy issues are.
And that's a bad is actually telling a -- so just keep that in mind when you talk about style when you talk about the verbiage that he -- that Joseph Biden chose to use tonight.
Well and they're all there will be bureaucrats that are unelected and -- I think it's about 4000 times the health care bill will they will decide.
Very -- thing and we'll be debating that in the days.
