This isn't going to be a debate where Paul Ryan outshines Joe Biden. On the surface it will look like an evenly matched competition. But, if anyone takes an opportunity to dissect what the candidates for Vice President actually say, it will be cringe worthy (to a level rarely seen in national politics).So while Biden is taking 6 days off the campaign trail at a crucial time in the presidential campaign, it's likely that he isn't completely off. He's most likely spending the time with David Axelrod preparing for Thursday's debate.
Mark it...Joe Biden is going to tell some absolute whoppers. He is going to smile while he does it. The media is going to try and protect him the best they can. But, Joe always goes that extra mile and only looks around once he gets there.
My prediction is that there will be no clear winner from the debate on Thursday. But, there will be a real clear loser. That will be the media trying to spin gold out of damp, rotting straw.
