The next-to-the-last question was the closing argument for Ryan, and he did the only thing a VP candidate is supposed to do in these debate: He landed punches on President Obama.
Listing failed promise after failed promise from Obama was brutal. He showed that he had more to say, had a bigger case to make.
Joe Biden, on the other hand, seemed to transform into a different person at the end. Did the Xanax kick in? I’m not sure. Biden’s debating improved as his energy level came down, but he also seemed to run out of gas.
Most importantly, Biden never got to Mitt, but Ryan at the end was all over President Obama.
(Fox reports Biden spoke about one minute longer than Ryan. It just seemed like Biden never shut up.)
