It seems the Democratic strategy is now to call everything the Republicans say a lie. and then ignore it when the facts can’t back that up. The Democratic Party base (and if you have to pander to them this late in the game, it’s NOT GOOD) ate it up with a spoon. Not so everyone else.

Ryan was very much a wonk. Biden was very much a wanker. And I think that most of the Dem strategy for this debate was to try and get Ryan to lose his cool. That failed miserably, Ryan looked like the adult, Slow Joe came across as that smirking punk everyone knows from school who would laugh at anything he didn’t consider “cool”.
