BEFORE His Debate With Paul Ryan
In the debate between the Vice Presidential Candidates on October 11th it was obvious that Joe Biden was deliberately pursuing a strategy of interrupting his opponent, Paul Ryan, both verbally and visually. This was cheap and unfair, but the significant implication is that Biden decided before the debate to do this. This means that he conceded that he would not be able to counter Ryan on an intellectual level. He recognized that he would have to resort to unscrupulous trickery. In effect, his tactics revealed that he could not hope to match Ryan on an intellectual level. Basically Biden conceded intellectual defeat when he immorally resorted to the cheap tactic of continual interruption of his opponent.
The debate moderators were also at fault for allowing Biden to pursue such an unfair tactic.
