The Palm Beach Post, a Florida newspaper, published a flurry of letters from readers this morning regarding Thursdays V.P. debate. Out of eight letters, five of them specifically addressed Vice President Joe Biden's performance.
--"...Mr. Biden’s negative demeanor ruined an otherwise professional performance..."
--"In my 80 years I have never seen a jerk in the White House put on such a display of stupidity on national TV."
--"Vice President Joe Biden was rude, he was crude, he made faces like a third-grader, and he could qualify as the class bully. He is the antithesis of a milquetoast like his boss. No names, but if the shoe fits, wear it."
--"What we saw during the TV debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan was a display of disrespect and condescension by the vice president — the administration’s crazy old uncle."
--"Joe Biden may be old enough to be Paul Ryan’s father, but he displayed a level of disrespectful immaturity that would not have been tolerated in a sixth-grade debate."
A recent poll showed Mitt Romney leading the swing state with a 7-point lead over President Obama among likely voters.
