Vice Presidential Debate: Live Chat in Milwaukee

Not only did things get a bit heated between U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday night, but there was a lively debate taking place in Pach's live blog as well.

Democrat Joe Biden went head to head against Republican Paul Ryan tonight in the first and only vice presidential debate of the campaign.

Patch readers from throughout the Milwaukee area exchanged their views and comments during our live blog from the debate. Here's a replay of what they were talking about in real time.

@Bren - Are you sure you were watching the same debate? What did Ryan lie about exactly? Biden was the one who was clearly lying his rear end off! He voted in favor of both wars, and not against them as he claimed last night! And he's continuing to lie about Libya! Biden also lied about how Ryan was being given more time by the moderator than him, when in reality, Biden was given over 2 minutes of additional time over Ryan, not including his laughs, interruptions, talk overs, cackles, etc. Biden also continued to double down on Obama's lies about Romney's tax plan. The moderator was slightly biased in favor of Biden - even the Washington Post admits to this! But continue to live in fantasy land - you always do!

@Hoffa - JQP thinks that Hoffa's irony meter needs calibration. Deep down, even Hoffa has to admit that, given Paul Ryan's proven interest in Ayn Rand's works, it was a clever "dis".

@JRH....What's with you lately and your red herrings? I used to think you were your own man and truly independent; but, as of late you are over the top in your Republican partisanship. When will we see your independence again? Or was independence just a ruse?

@Hoffa and @CowDung - Perhaps the two of you should outline exactly where the "so-called 'fact-checkers'" went astray. JQP would be interested to get your take on it and I hazard to guess that other readers would appreciate being enlightened as well. I look forward to your analysis.
