Memorable moments from the Biden Ryan debate

Posted: Updated:

There were some dramatic moments right from the start with tonight's vice-presidential debate between vice president Joe Biden and Wisconsin representative Paul Ryan.

Both Biden and Ryan kept the debate alive, with what some might call entertaining moments.

These are the water cooler moments many of us may be talking about tomorrow, the moments which might end up as jokes on late night TV.

Biden laid the first attack when it came to talking about the source of the bad economy

"Stop talking about how you care about people. show me something. Show me the policy where you take responsibility. And by the way, they talk about this great recession as if it fell out of the sky like 'oh my goodness, where did it come from," Biden said.

Biden didn't stop there when it came to talking about taking stimulus money

"I love my friend here, I'm not allowed to show letter but go on our web site.  He sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of Wisconsin."

Ryan stood his ground firm though with his response.

"On two occasions we advocated for constituents applying for grants, that's what we do, we do that for all constituents who are applying for grants," Ryan said.

Biden found Ryan's response to be ironic.

"I love that this is such a bad program, he writes a letter saying we need this stimulus, it will create jobs," Biden added.

While Biden attacked Romney on his comments on the "47 percent," Ryan snapped back by commenting on Biden's ability to make his own gaffes.

"This is a man who gave 30% of his income to charity more than the two of us combined.  Mitt Romney is a good man.  He cares about a hundred percent of Americans in this country.  With respect to that quote, I think the vice-president very well knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way," Ryan said.

"But I always say what I mean," Biden quipped.
