While Obama's lackluster, un-testosteroned performance caught us all off guard at the first Presidential debate, VP Joe Biden's fiery and well-earned temper is exactly what the Democrats need right about now.
Biden has been purposely 'kept under the radar' for the past four years by the current administration, as he is well known for his gaffes, inappropriate outbursts and overly-sentimental soliloquies.
But Joe's authentic and passionate Alpha Male state may prove as a crucially needed antidote in the only Vice Presidential Debate, hopefully securing Obama's presidency for another four years.
One of his nicknames is "The Bidenator", named by press secretary Robert Gibbs as a reference to being the democrat's version of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Along with the President's surprising 'no-show', Romney's fraternity know-how and the ability to articulately deliver a new platform of lies also "knocked the wind" right of overly confident Democrats, causing a frenzy amongst liberal-minded pundits on cable news and social media networks.
Among them was MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who asked "where the heck Obama was" during the debate.
"There's a hot debate going on in this country, and you know where it's being held?" yelled Matthews, who was ridiculed on SNL for his rant . . .
"Here, on this network is where we're having this debate! We have our knives out! We go after people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in disarmed!"
But Matthews won't be disappointed with both Biden and Ryan who have already assumed well-armed positions, making for a performance that may be be the most anticipated VP debates ever to air-- after Biden vs Palin in 2008 of course.
We can count on an intense 'man-on-man' rumble by two men who are quick on their feet, know their platforms, and won't be afraid to out-attack-dog the other; or fight their way out of a corner no matter how combative they may have to get.
No doubt 'Scranton Joe' will walk out with that million dollar smile looking like a distinguished actor who plays a Vice President on T.V., while Ryan will announce himself with that boyish bop and misleading innocence and charm of "the new kid in town" . . . lasting all of about five minutes.
Paul Ryan said that he well expects Joe Biden to "come at him like a cannonball."
"They're just going to call us liars for a month is basically what they're going to do," Ryan told a radio host. "It looks like they're going to descend down into a mudpit and, hopefully, with enough mudslinging back and forth, people will get demoralized and then they can win by default."
Neither Biden or Ryan, a good generation and a few hundred ideologies apart, are known for keeping a cool demeanor in check, especially when attacked and countered on their records, or when pushed into a corner about "why they might not be qualified candidates."
Make sure that for this debate, your ears and your intellects are turned up as much as your adrenaline.
Unlike the early October surprise, this debate will be a heated back-and-forth, and will include real meat in the form of substantial and heavyweight points that might just make the big difference in the minds of Undecided Voters and others who still narrowly ride the fence.
And just a note of caution, it might make you nauseous with even more untruths and hallucinations told this time by Ryan who-- unlike Romney, not only understands what he is talking about, but wholeheartedly believes them to be true . . . a dangerous combination to be sure.
While Obama played it safe as an incumbent 'very presidential president' who left all bravado and braggadocio to his campaign team, he clearly missed the mark at the debate, appearing not only unofficial, but officially uncharismatic.
On the other hand, The Mittster unexpectedly came out swinging for Swing States and secure ones, somehow like a born-again Mormon if there is such a thing, winning the debate 66 percent to 20 percent among registered voters.
This sadly proved that being an enthusiastic liar is somehow more popular than being an unenthusiastic truth teller.
But most polls prove useless in the long run, especially in the scheme of first debates in a incumbent presidential campaign. Moreover, a 66 percent lead will soon enough seem less than even like 47 percent, a number Romney is all too familiar with.
But what makes Democrats truly angry is that the President 'didn't tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.'
We're all hitting our heads against the wall as well with questions like:
Why didn't you ask Romney about his atrocious 47 percent "victim" remarks?
What about his offshore bank accounts and 20 years of undisclosed tax records?
Why didn't you call him a bold-faced liar who completely changed his tune about suddenly caring about the the middle and underclasses, pre-existing conditions and regulations?
Why didn't you point out that you and your administration were responsible for taking out Osama bin Laden and for ending the War in Afghanistan?
And what about General Motors?
Why, why, why?
And what the heck happened to Romney at the debate and what was he on?
It was as if all five of his strapping young boys poured their virile juices into a Mitt Romney energy power shake, making it seem as though he might have charisma and intellect after all.
But all of that is going to change, just wait and see.
Joe Biden's a-comin' and he doesn't much care for pomp and circumstance, or for leaving the supposed loud-mouthing to Republicans.
While Biden has behaved himself pretty well over the the past four years, he has also earned respect for his well-lauded experience about domestic and foreign policy.
And of course he is known for not much caring if he runs off his mouth, gets his foot stuck in it, or allowing his temper to flare when he has felt it justified.
As Americans, we have always had a love affair-- if not an 'all-out romanticized longing' for male figures who aren't afraid to show well-earned anger about they feel passionate about.
Even the box office results prove it.
We love strong male characters in movies who are able to take out the bad guys even if that means using deadly force. Our biggest box office heros are dudes with guns who said "Make My Day" and "I'll be Back."
Yes, I know both these lines were said by famous Republican actors, the first who recently yelled at an empty chair supposedly sat on by Obama, and the other-- a former Governor who spawned a child with his maid . . . but you get the point.
Passion and male aggression is not always a bad thing.
You can almost hear it in the great speeches, debates and writings of our founding fathers. They were passionate about issues they had a responsibility to be be passionate about.
They did what they could to get legislation passed, and cooperated and worked within the realm of a pluralistic society. They weren't peaceful or lethargic, and were willing and ready to take on an honest fight at any time.
Clinton played a fine line with being a Southern gentleman, a charmer and an outright pitbull when it came to getting what he wanted to get done for the good of the country.
Hence, his downright popularity with the men and the ladies, now even referred to as The President of the World for probably eternity, or for at least as long as we remain a country.
Paul Ryan is also passionate and knows how to roll up his sleeves and get in your face.
At first, he comes off as much too young to know anything, looking akin to some Warner Brothers cartoon character of a young politician just getting his feet wet, as well as much too wet behind the ears and the years.
But then he opens his mouth and the furor comes out.
He's more than a wolf in sheep's clothing, he's a wolf that wants the sheep to all go away forever.
He really doesn't give a damn about who starves, goes homeless, drops out of school, can't afford to live in their own communities, or isn't part of an elite financial establishment that even Romney doesn't consider himself to be part of, or is aware of.
Just look at his great financial plan and wait until he spars with Biden.
Ryan's views are more than angry; they're perverse and without moral sense, radical, authoritarian and full of supremacist ideology at their very core.
Let's just take Medicaid as one example. Under Ryan's plan, between 14 and 27 million people would lose their health care coverage as a result. That is on top of the 17 million who would lose coverage as a result of repealing The Affordable Care Act.
If you want a Romney-Ryan ticket, just know what Ryan stands for.
Basically, if you aren't born with money and can't seem to get out of the hole that you're are in, that's your problem, not theirs.
That also holds true for not being able to afford an education; being able keep a roof over your head; consumer rights; clean air; employee rights and women's reproductive rights.
His plans are pretty much opposite to every idea that Vice President Joe Biden has stood for-- for about as long as Ryan has been alive.
In a million years, no punditry politicos or vigorous voters might have guessed this would be the debate we wouldn't miss for all of the Reagan and Clinton one-liners ever heard.
What is assured is that once Ryan and Biden take to the ring, their rumble will make quick amnesiacs of us all by the second round, if not by the first . . .
Prompting us to try and recall what happened, if anything at all, during the first Presidential debate.
What a relief.
