The Republicans shrill whining indicates they know that Paul Ryan just lost the election. That and Obama's seven point lead in Ohio. They like their Obamacare and their new auto company jobs. The corporate media dutifully tried to spin the debate in the Republican's favor, but that began falling flat when the poll numbers started rolling in. Most striking was the high percentage of Independents who think Biden would be a good President. Little Paul, not so much.
VP debates aren't supposed to be important, VPs aren't supposed to be important, but when Romney picked Ryan to save his candidacy from a tea bagger revolt, that changed. Republicans have convinced themselves with help from corporate media that Joe Biden isn't very bright and that Ryan is an intellectual giant. Reality was a hard slap in the face.
Conservatives all have the fantasy that they can overwhelm any liberal with their talking points. You can tell none of them even have an opinion of their own by the fact that they have nothing to say beyond the word for word talking points. When challenged on this, they just make 'stuff' up, after you point this out, they will try to shout you down. Failing with that, they run away, as Ryan did Monday when a Colorado reporter pointed out that Romney-Ryan's Grand Vision for America is nothing but tax cuts. He couldn't run from Joe, and he got the stuff kicked out of him.
