Vice- Presidential Debate Filled With Fireworks

In a little less than a month voters will head to the polls and decide who they want to run the country.
Thursday night the two men who would serve as second in command squared off in their one and only debate.  Unlike last week's presidential debate it was a little harder for folks to proclaim a winner between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. Although most felt that Biden came across feistier than his counterpart.
In their lone debate, Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan disagreed early and often.  The tone of Thursday night's debate was set with the fist question concerning the attack o the US Embassy in Libya.  The two then squabbled over the economy, taxes, and Medicare.
One of their most heated disagreements was over steps to reduce the federal deficits.  Supporters of Ryan said he was calm, cool, and collected. 
One of those supporters is Steven Kresh. He was proud of the way Ryan preformed.  "Paul Ryan's strongest point was talking about the impact on the middle class," Kresh said. "(He mentioned) how under Ombamacare, and other various other of the administrations programs,  the middle class is going to get substantial tax increases.
On the other hand Biden came across as aggressive, and at points he cut off his counterpart.  There were instances where he spoke under his break while Ryan answered questions.  Other times he even laughed at his counterparts answers.
For Biden supporters, like Paul Casto, he wasn't rude, he just knew his competitor was wrong.  "If someone is playing lose with the facts," Casto stated. "And lose with the facts that effect his policy and our national policy, then I think he has a right to call him out."
The next debate between Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama is set for Monday, October 22nd.
