POLITICAL FAB: Vice President Joe Biden TACKLES Congressman Ryan On Abortion, The Economy And The Middle Class

Vice President Joe Biden and his perfect teeth took on Congressman Paul Ryan last night in the 2012 Vice Presidential Debate where they debated the economy, social issues and more.  Get the fiery highlights inside....

ABC's Martha Raddatz moderated (and did a fabulous job by the way) the 2012 Vice Presidential Debate last night in Danville, KY where the candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, debated a range of issues from foreign and social policies to the economy. 

During the debate, Vice President Biden asked, "Who Do You Trust?" and spent a great deal of his time driving home why he and President Barack Obama are the best choice for America.  Here are the highlights:

On abortion:

BIDEN: The court -- the next president will get one or two Supreme Court nominees. That's how close Roe v. Wade is. Just ask
yourself, with Robert Bork being the chief adviser on the court for -- for Mr. Romney, who do you think he's likely to appoint? Do you think he's likely to appoint someone like Scalia or someone else on the court far right that would outlaw (inaudible) -- outlaw abortion? I suspect that would happen.

On war

BIDEN TO RYAN: HOW WILL YOU PREVENT WAR?

RYAN: We want to prevent war.
BIDEN: And the interesting thing is, how are they going to
prevent war? How are they going to prevent war if they say there's
nothing more that we -- that they say we should do than what we've
already done, number one.

On the economy:

BIDEN: All this talk, we saved a million jobs. 200,000 people are working today, and I've never met two guys who are more down on America across the board. We're told everything's going bad. There are 5.2 million new jobs, private sector jobs. We need more but 5.2 million, but if they would get out of the way, if they'd get out of the way and let us pass the tax cut for the middle class, make it permanent. If they'd get out of the way and pass the jobs bill. If they'd get out of the way and let us allow 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down but they never missed a mortgage payment, just get out of the way. Stop talking about how you care about people. Show me something. Show me a policy. Show me a policy where you take responsibility.

On the 47% of Americans who Romney says don't pay taxes

BIDEN: I've had it up to here with this notion that 47 percent -- it's about time they take some responsibility here. And
instead of signing pledges to Grover Norquist not to ask the wealthiest among us to contribute to bring back the middle class, they should be signing a pledge saying to the middle class we're going to level the playing field; we're going to give you a fair shot again; we are going to not repeat the mistakes we made in the past by having a different set of rules for Wall Street and Main Street, making sure that we continue to hemorrhage these tax cuts for the super wealthy.

They're pushing the continuation of a tax cut that will give an additional $500 billion in tax cuts to 120,000 families. And they're holding hostage the middle class tax cut because they say we won't pass -- we won't continue the middle class tax cut unless you give the tax cut for the super wealthy.  It's about time they take some responsibility.

President Obama seemed pleased with his running mates performance as he tweeted,

That last video was classic Joe.  Democrats say Joe won this debate hands down.  Conservatives say it was a tie.  Your thoughts?

I don't know what u guys are

I don't know what u guys are so excited about anyway, at the end, opinion polls showed they were a tie (by few margins between them). Even after all of Biden's aggressiveness and interruptions. Ryan had 48%, Biden had 44%. He did perform better, saving Obama and the Democrat's disgrace from the last debate, but in end, it is the facts and figures that talk, not empty opinions.

I disagree with you. In the

I disagree with you. In the end its what the voters do at the polls that count. Those are the ONLY numbers that count. You can take opinion polls all day long with their plus or minus points. And who opinion are you getting any way? I'm voting for Obama. My family and friends are voting for Obama.. It is my sincere wish that everyone who can vote will vote for Obama.

Yeah, all black ppl are

Yeah, all black ppl are voting Obama, that's no news. That's not what wins elections in this country. The most important thing is reaching the ppl whose votes really matters, like the voters from battle-ground states, Hispanics, Older folks and Caucasian women voters. Right now, these groups are not feeling Obama and the Democrats very well.

I agree with what an HBO

I agree with what an HBO politician said which was something like "I turned on my TV and there was an old man beating a child!" I don't care which party you represent, if you think Ryan won this debate you're dillusional. "My friend" is a young man trying to fill very big shoes.

It's 12 million not 23

It's 12 million not 23 million so stop exaggerates the truth about unemployment. And besides the economy is making a recovery, it might be slow but it's getting better. If they can give a man who started an unnecessary war 2 terms and mess the country up, tell me y can't they give Obama 2 ters to clean it up.

And if Republican Congress had passed President O's job bill then there would have been even more jobs created.

There are still 23 million

There are still 23 million Americans unemployed in this country under the Obama Administration during his watch and that makes his re-election far from certain and that is why Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan may win the election and the White House in November and that is fact.

You may or may not be right

You may or may not be right but Obama did say it took 8 years of Bush's administration to tear this place up and it's going to take more than 4 years to clean it all up. This place was a HOT MESS and yes there is still work to be done. But who do you trust to get it done is the question? Romney smiles and smirks like either the joker or a used car saleman that rolled back the odometer. I don't know about that guy.
