Biden was rude during vice presidential debate

To the editor:

My letter is regarding the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

In his debate with Paul Ryan, Vice President Biden's behavior was rude and unprofessional. His tactics included constant interruption, smirking and head shaking at his opponent's statements. Interrupting is an old debate tactic designed to throw your opponent off balance and distract observers from what is being said.

Vice President Biden showed blatant disrespect for Mr. Ryan - thinking this would establish his own superiority over him. In other words, I'm, the one for the job. Not you."

When Paul Ryan asked Vice President Biden about the jobless rate in the U.S. he was met only with a smile.

I guess Vice President Biden finds humor in the fact that 23 million Americans are out of work. Labor participation is at 1981 levels (63.3%) College graduates are unable to find jobs and are living at home with their parents.

We can not afford to have four more years like the last four years and this is no laughing matter.
