  •  That would be sweet. (4+ / 0-)

    It would be helpful if he mopped the floor in a way that reframes the whole debate dynamic (obama's poor first debate and public reaction) in terms that are disqualifying for Romney-Ryan and the Republicans in general.

    Winning in the conventional ways (better facts, better presentation, better policies) doesn't really do that.  But going Meta on them at least levels the playing field (countering phony with phony-repellant) and hopefully lays out an easy narrative bridging the chasm between pre and post debate Obama.

    Paul Ryan is a policy wank.

    •  I think he'll use the same style against Palin (3+ / 0-)

      There he did a great job at framing brands, I do however think he'll be harsher about it which even though the beltway bubble might not like, it will resonate with the public more.

        And if he does, it makes it so much easier for Barack to follow up in the second debate with the same.  If it were just Barack, it would be easy for some people to spin it as the angry black guy or the guy who just got his ass kicked flailing back.

        Biden could easily reframe both the 1st and 2nd debates in a much more favorable way.  

        Paul Ryan is a policy wank.
