Brit Hume: Biden Came Off As Rude And A "Cranky Old Man"

HUME: Well it all depends on what [undecided voters] think of Joe Biden and his demeanor. If you read the transcript you might well conclude that the Vice President had a very strong debate, that he had a lot to say, he was strongly critical of Governor Romney and his program, that he held his own. But that’s not all there is to it. We had the split screen, like we had during the Presidential debate. And what you saw while Paul Ryan was talking, as others have pointed out was smirking, laughing, smiling, mugging by the Vice President. My sense about it was that it was so compelling that people probably couldn’t take their eyes off it. So it will come down to whether people thought that was attractive or not. Myself, I didn’t. I thought it was rude and I have a feeling it will come across to a lot of people as rude. It looked like a cranky old man to some extent debating a polite young man.
