No, I read the rest of that. I know she blamed the moderator for it (of course), but she still said Ryan was like a guy being trampled under a musk ox, and I agree.
Edit: Here’s the full debate. As Exhibit A, look at what happened in the minute or so starting with the moderator question at 0:37:30:
Ryan’s “prominent Senator from Oregon” turned out to be Senator Ron Whyden. This is how he responded to Ryan’s claims of their supposed partnership:
Biden is right — Ryan did work with former OMB director Alice Rivlin and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on his Medicare plan but both have distanced themselves from the final proposals, saying they did not reflect their agreements. BusinessWeek reported that Wyden said that Ryan is “talking nonsense” about their partnership.
Update, 12:29 a.m. Sen. Ron Wyden took to Facebook to refute the Romney-Ryan Medicare plans: “The Wyden-Ryan white paper strengthened the safety net for these dual eligibles. The Romney/Ryan version shreds it. The [R]epublican ticket knows that neither I, nor any other Democrat, would support these policies.”
Fact Check: Ryan allies on Medicare
Watching the debate, my fiance pointed out how strange it was for Ryan not to mention Whyden by name, only describing him with the words, “Our partner is a prominent Democratic Senator from Oregon.” Odd choice of words, right? After all, there are only two Senators from Oregon. Maybe Ryan didn’t want to say who the Senator was, because doing that would make it easier for fact-checkers to identify what he was saying as a lie. In any case, they weren’t needed. Biden came prepared and called him out before the lie had even finished exiting his mouth. He called him a liar and laughed in his face, and poor Ryan didn’t have a response (not because the moderator didn’t let him respond, but because there was nothing he could say). I’ve never seen a guy mauled by a musk ox, but it probably looks something like that.
