Vice President Joe Biden uses the point-finger-on-every-word-for-emphasis technique when answering a question from moderator Martha Raddatz on Libya.
When giving his answer on Libya, Rep. Paul Ryan throws an incredulous look toward Biden, who is taking notes.
As Ryan criticizes the Obama administration on its Iran policy, Biden deadpans to the camera, like Jim from “The Office.”
Biden clarifies the definition of “malarkey,” saying it means “simply inaccurate” while Ryan adds, “It’s Irish.” “Malarkey” was the most searched word on Google last night after the debate.
Biden breaks into a one of his many wide smiles of the night after calling a response from Ryan “incredible.”
Ryan furrows his brow when Biden says the Obama administration has saved $716 million for Medicare.
Breaking into yet another big smile, this time a sideways grin with a head tilt, Biden reacts to Ryan’s accusation that the Obama administration was “caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning Medicare into a piggy bank for ‘Obamacare.’”
Biden shows his frustration, crossing his arms and once again looking directly into the camera as Ryan quotes unemployment rates in Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pa.
Biden and Ryan get into a heated discussion about the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
