I want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion (that) unless we can do everything we’re going to do nothing. It’s critically important (that) we act.
Vice President Joe Biden • Reiterating the Obama Administration’s focus on strengthening U.S. gun control legislation in the near future, during discussions with representatives from top retailers, gun-safety advocates, and victim’s groups. President Obama wants to see a return of the assault weapon ban, the closing of the gun show loophole, and a limiting of high-capacity magazine purchases. The Associated Press report also claims that Vice President Biden promised action from President Obama, even if Congress forces him to issue an executive order on the matter. source

Defending the easily defendable: Beau Biden, Delaware’s Attorney General and the son of Joe Biden, said that his dad’s facial expressions were no big (effin’) deal. “I’m happy to defend my dad,” he said. “I don’t think he needs any defensiveness. Any time the other side – Karl Rove or folks on the far right – are going after my father for smiling too much, you know that’s a victory.”

CBS insta-poll has Biden up by 19 points amongst undecideds

23:40 // 2 years ago

Quick hits: Here’s what the pundits thought of tonight’s debate

  • Ace of Spaces HQ "Well, Biden gave the Chris Matthews and Maddow what they asked for — an MSNBC style debate.”
  • Weigel "Reading this transcript is going to be like scanning a David Mamet play. Biden never gave up the momentum he won in the first five minutes — he seems physically unable to let Ryan finish an answer, interrupting him as if he’s livetweeting to correct every factoid he dislikes. Whether or not this Biden performance helps Obama, you could sell bootleg DVDs of it to Dems for $20.”
  • Sully So this was a solid win for Biden, I’d say; as well as a competent performance by Ryan. The star? Raddatz - the woman the far right just tried to intimidate. She was tough on both, controlled the debate, and knew her shit cold. Sorry, Tucker. But you were pwned by a pro. One day, you may grow up to be a journalist half her caliber.”
  • Ebert I vote for Martha Raddatz to moderate all the debates.”
  • Hot Air "[Biden’s] task tonight was to get the left excited again after Obama fell into a semi-coma in Denver, and evincing utter disdain for Ryan — grimacing, shouting, laughing inappropriately, and constant, constant interruptions, the total jackhole experience — is just what the doctor ordered. He might have irritated independents and undecideds, but probably not so much that it’ll change people’s votes.”
  • Buzzfeed “The Vice Presidential debate appears unlikely to have the effect on the presidential campaign that Barack Obama’s stumbles last week did, and the performances were far more even. Ryan held his own where Obama failed. But Biden’s performance gave Democrats hungry for energy, punch, and emotional connection what they needed to end a week that had veered at times near panic.”

Now, your turn: What did you think?

In a way, though, the only time Biden ever cools down is when he’s washing down his Trans Am.

Our faith informs us in everything we do, that’s matter of course. But it’s not simply because of my Catholic faith, but also because of reason and science. …I believe that life begins at conception.
Paul Ryan, explaining his position on abortion. He detailed seeing his unborn child on an ultrasound for the first time, and seeing her heart beat, as a reason he views life as beginning at conception. He said a Romney/Ryan ticket would oppose abortion, though he insists exceptions would be made for cases of rape and incest.
