Welcome back now 82 times in a ninety minute debate that's how many times the RNC says the vice president Joseph Biden in erupted.
Paul Ryan last night congressman Ryan attributing Biden's actions.
It's just vice president I don't know it's just let us know we are under a lot of the rest to make -- But I think it will be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other well we don't take all the four assists.
That happened about halfway -- -- -- bring in both campaigns down Minneapolis mayor RT ride back as the vice chairman of the DNC and rush Rafer.
Is a senior advisor to the Romney campaign -- wanna start with the mayor there in Minneapolis good morning sir thank you for your time.
Good morning was that the duress.
What nobody pressures Joseph Biden being Joseph Biden.
People can argue about him and -- too often people argued about Romney and -- too much in their debates.
Let's call that a -- let's go to the real core facts and Joseph Biden did what Joseph Biden doesn't -- look in the camera told people the truth with a bunch of straight time.
Paul Ryan talked about -- the stimulus program and concedes that he tried to get the money from it feels like the security and big guys leave that.
Wound up cutting a whole bunch from it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think when you really look at this Joseph Biden clearly won the debate and I think what's important is the American people know they can trust Joseph Biden and they.
All right -- OK here people around -- are great I appreciate that comment but you know what everybody's talking about today.
They're there they're trying to tell credit they're talking about -- nonverbal is in the laughter that that made a lot of folks uncomfortable at times.
Would you have liked to have seen Joseph Biden smile -- Have you ever seen Joseph Biden and and Joseph Biden -- -- of what I've known Joseph Biden served many many years senator frank.
And I think that's a great thing having Joseph Biden is exactly who and what he has you know.
A lot of people in politics are free drug free strident.
Time you know poll tested that's not -- -- Joseph Biden.
Is a guy from Scranton who.
Has been a single dad who raised his kids and and and is a huge heart.
And more I understand that but I question was being able to would you have.
Like to have seen your guy.
Smile less and perhaps control the laughter at moments that some consider was not acceptable.
Well I -- I'd like to see Joseph Biden being Joseph Biden and I also love the fact that Joseph Biden happens to be in command of the facts.
Joseph Biden's been through Afghanistan many many times Paul Ryan seems to be reading -- a note card on and that should scare the heck out of people who.
Heard -- commit us to trying to -- American troops -- with the what the Afghans should do.
Paul Ryan is a personal I respect for having a very -- Detailed in his mind budget but he sure hasn't told us anything about it and he didn't do anything to dispel -- Pretty clear notion that he's one of the most extreme members of congress don't would you have talk about what happened in the debate.
Let me just ask you to different -- here I can't would you have liked to have seen because I know clearly you -- by Joseph Biden's performance last night.
That's plain and that's that's clear to see this -- did you wanna see President Obama be little more like Joseph Biden.
President Obama and Joseph Biden are partners who are very very different people I think that's one of the good things American people get.
They get both of them for what they aren't they get president who who has a very different -- and Joseph Biden and that's one of the reasons why I think they're good partner.
Are you right back thank you sir mr.
mayor -- to have you on today you -- only here on the other side right now rush reefer senior advisor Romney team and sir good morning to you and welcome back here to America's Newsroom just -- the other side what do you think of that.
Com well I think that the bear.
Is I'm sure might have been watching a little bit of a different debate than the most of those people were last night.
You know obviously Joseph Biden's mugging for the camera took a lot away from his performance.
I'm but the one thing I think bill is that this most important and entered is that the vice president was really factually incorrect and it came to.
The security issue ending -- He said that the and minister he did not know that the administration.
Was asked for more security.
And clearly they -- hearings and testimony showed that they wore seat of the vice president was in unformed.
Or he wasn't telling us the truth about that and I think that that's really the key that the vice president.
On the issue that he is supposed to be the most informed about.
Seemed to be the least -- there's a few -- -- things aren't you get to hear but but what the mayor just said -- -- polarizing writer is reading -- -- cards.
-- -- -- Paul Ryan as as most people -- is is is is one of the most informed Smart.
Members of congress.
He knows the federal budget inside and out.
He knows the defense budget inside and out.
Kind of out its Smart Paul Ryan when it comes to the federal government right now on the moderator a lot of -- folks on the Ryder blaming Martha Raddatz for a for a bias performance last night.
-- down Nellis and I think you know I always was taught the bill that when you in the game you know and argue with the -- And you think you won the game then.
Absolutely that's absolutely and -- RNC is saying to Joseph Biden erupted 82 times last night did you keep track of that.
-- you and I kept track of was how few the number of times that Joseph Biden mentioned Barack Obama last night.
I was just surprised that this is all about Joseph Biden and has very little -- Barack Obama and and the press and the administration.
What the administration was gonna do in the next four years what their plans work to get the -- America at a recovery.
What where their plans to prevent this unraveling of a farm policy that we've seen around the world.
Listen I eat the the interruptions are one thing I think with the American people looking at where there what weren't what are.
The Obama Biden plans for the future and I think -- -- apparently -- -- one more question on all this does this matter Vieira on today.
Or over the weekend and into Monday and -- dissolve and everybody looks at the big ticket on Tuesday night yet again around -- I think it matters it is much is that voters or prevent it once again were -- Presented with a choice last night.
And the choice was the Obama Biden ticket.
Which has no plans no ideas about what they want to do for the next few years.
And governor Romney congressman Ryan who -- -- very clear.
Five point plan.
To create twelve million new jobs in this economy.
And I figured that for -- what's gonna move people -- -- for thank you -- -- back before that Minneapolis both campaigns now early quick reaction this morning thank you sir.
For being here great.
