Ryan vs. Biden 2012 Vice Presidential Debate: Just the Good Parts

Ryan vs. Biden 2012 Vice Presidential Debate: Just the Good Parts

  • On October 11 in Danville, Kentucky, Vice President Joe Biden and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan faced off in their first and only 2012 VP debate.

    Moderated by Martha Raddatz from ABC News, the affair was a heated one from get-go, as the candidates fielded questions about the attack on U.S. ambassadors in Libya, the war in Afghanistan, and a number of foreign policy topics. Issues then shifted to cover domestic policies, including tax cuts and Romney's controversial 47% comments.

    The candidates proved more than ready to throw their own zingers across the table, but perhaps the most interesting additions to the event were provided by Raddatz herself, who asked the men to clearly give their takes on Catholicism and abortion, negative portrayals in the media, and how their own personal experiences influence their policies for the greater good of the nation.

    While Biden is receiving criticism for his condescending behavior and Ryan is noted to have been too passive in his arguments, each candidate had the opportunity to make profound and resonant points for their respective parties.

    Now, it's up to the voters. Who do you think won the debate?
