One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerous it is to trust them.
Congressman Paul Ryan tried to debate VP Joe Biden Thursday night.
He did his best to be respectful and courteous.
His preparation and readiness shined through the arrogance of his debater.
Paul Ryan didn’t have to put on a show of comical narcissism; he was himself.
He exhibited his intelligence with facts and statistics when he wasn’t constantly interrupted 82 times.
He provided the necessary plans to reveal the Presidential future of our country; when he wasn’t constantly interrupted or laughed at for his answers.
He displayed honesty in his approach when he wasn’t interrupted or slammed with a pointed smirk.
He announced his intentions to bring our country back to the America it needs to be when he wasn’t interrupted by arrogant gestures.
The Congressman made the effort to bring unity to the American people when he wasn’t interrupted by inconsiderate grins.
He naturally communicated freshness in the political arena from a younger perspective when he wasn’t interrupted by an elder grandstander.
He restrained himself from the obvious belittlement thrown at him when he wasn’t interrupted by a supposed seasoned politician.
Congressman Ryan attempted to explain the need for a budget and spending restrictions when he wasn’t interrupted by outbursts of sarcasm.
The Congressman kept his cool during the uncultured demeanor of a man who constantly interrupted him showing off his white teeth like a Dental commercial.
Paul Ryan revealed his refinement and dignity when he wasn’t being interrupted by a crude, rough unsophisticated whiner.
And then there was the wanna-be-Moderator: Martha Raddatz. She should keep her day job. She lost control in the beginning as a Moderator. Maybe she planned it that way to allow a free-for-all from the Vice President.
Proverbs 21:24 “The proud and arrogant man–“Mocker” is his name; he behaves with overweening pride.
“Mommy, look at that man. He is being rude.”
“Mommy, if I talk like he does that mean I am being rude too?”
Is that the example we want to set for our children and grandchildren?
After about an hour of Joe Biden’s smirks, silly grins, sickening laughter, and continual interruptions I turned it off.
It is one thing to be a public servant. It is another to use your position as a platform agenda to make someone else look bad in front of 52 million viewers. I would call that a coward. Or maybe he really has a problem that needs to be addressed.
As an American I was embarrassed. Joe Biden was embarrassing.
Commentators who praised his outbursts of sarcastic ridicule remarked,
“That’s Joe. That is just how he is. Everyone knows he has a loud mouth. You have to admit he was kinda funny.”
1st: Bombing an American Embassy killing our Ambassador and 3 other heroes is not funny.
2nd Why should we have to put up with him the way that he is? Why should I have to accept his childish, brash, blow-ups in the middle of someone else’s sentences?
Well, I don’t. He had no business acting as he did. He should have been kicked off the stage, reprimanded and apologized.
The truth is that finding him humorous, comical, and full of “himself” shot any part of substance he may have had.
Is this what we have stooped to people? Allowing a Public Servant to shove his belligerence down our throats time after time and we are supposed to accept it?
For the record if you noticed: Congressman Ryan thanked the VP at the end of the debate. Joe Biden didn’t respond.
But then, why would he?
Why tarnish a fool’s idiotic reputation with a grateful response?

Side Note: Dr. Keith Ablow, a Psychiatrist was asked what he thought of VP Joe Biden’s behavior Thursday night. He referenced it by describing him as showing signs of Dementia which he determined needs to be checked. If that is the case, it would excuse him and rightly so, but would also question his ability in is present job.
If that is not the case, as a Psychiatrist it was abnormal and he disregards the opinions of others completely. Either way he said he needs help.
