What did Biden say to Ryan off mic? Lip reader weighs in

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Joe Biden mumbled a lot underneath his breath last night during his many attempts to disrespect Congressman Ryan, who to his credit did not get rattled by the antics one bit. But what was it Joe Biden was actually saying? Did he actually curse in front of tens of millions of Americans?

During the debate, there was an exchange between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan where Biden looked over to him and said something and there’s speculation on what exactly was said. Some have even speculated he told Ryan he was “so full of sh**”.

In the Dallas office, Glenn explained they have an employee, Adam, who can read lips (he was deaf before getting a Cochlear implant) and asked him to weigh in on the subject.

Glenn read Adam’s analysis on air: “My initial reaction to this when I first saw it, Biden said you are so funny. The more I watch it, the more I’m convinced that’s what he said.”

“You have to look at his jaw as he talks,” Adam continued. “He only makes four syllables, which fits with you’re so funny but not you’re so full of sh**, but in order to say full of sh**, his cheeks and lips would have been moving differently to make the SH sound.”

“The reason why this is important is Biden was playing not just for you, he was really trying to unsettle Paul Ryan. He leaned over and said quietly away from the microphones, you’re so funny. Belittling him,” Glenn explained.

    Alternatives he could have said:

    “After the debate I’ll give you the Fast and Furious documents…uh, then again…’
    “Make sure Obama takes the fall…”
    “Can’t wait to retire when this is done…”
    “Meeting with Elmo, Bert, Ernie and Big Bird…”
    “I’m totally insane…”
    “Master Soros, the plan has failed…”
    “Obama – why are you yelling in my earphone?”

    I thought he said “I am so high”.

    Biden came off as a school yard bully. A disrespectful child who made this mother want to put him in a time out. My 7 year old is better behaved for pete sake! When adults see children acting like this we tell them it’s unacceptable behavior. So why is it okay for the Vice President of the United States? The answer: It’s not. It truly frightened me when I heard people say that they believed Bidens performance was strong and “just what this country needs”. Are Americans so uneducated and jaded that we think Bidens performance (and that’s what it was, a performance.) was good? No, it wasn’t. It was dirty politics at it’s best. The only thing missing was Biden giving Ryan a wedgie and taking his lunch money. To me, a God fearing American, I truly believe Obama/Biden are a product of what America has become; blissfully ignorant. Our people are bumping off walls in the dark searching for a way back to the light, and Obama has convinced them Government is the only solution. He IS the problem, not the solution. Romney/Ryan represent what we can become as a country again. Proud, unapologetic, and fruitful Americans. Just what God intended us to be. A leader.

      Biden is also an arrogant, potty-mouthed first rate LIAR! His performance stunk last night, just typical of his way of doing business….he is always pooping and then stepping in it. He’s never held a REAL job and he’s unqualified to be VP. I’m embarrassed for this country. Obama and Biden remind me of daffy duck and goofy. The elections can’t come fast enough!

      Brilliant, Kerri, simply brilliant. As an Indian who loves America and Americans, I was really embarrassed by Biden’s boorish behavior. Take heart, though. Paul Ryan behaved like a thorough gentleman…..dignified, civilized and knowledgeable to boot.

      Can you please use your caps lock key. All caps is shouting and harder to read.

      • Anonymous

        Actually all caps is easier to read. Back in the days of ‘rip and read’ news from the ap or upi ticker wires (before computers) the news came down the line in all caps…same with tty’s used for communication with the deaf primarily in police 911 dispatch. FWIW…

        • Glenn Eades

          As someone who’s worked in IT for over 30 years, allow me to inform you – back in the days of ‘rip and read’, computer technology was in it’s infancy and we were using dot matrix printers. The full ASCI alphanumeric code had not been developed, and just getting any kind of communication from place to place was considered “advanced” technology. It was not because of “ease of reading” at all that all caps were used, but simply that technology was in its infancy and the importance of emotional impact was not even a consideration to those developing the technology. Emoticons had also not been developed at that stage, either. It had nothing whatsoever to do with any kind of “ease of reading”, and everything to do with the state of technology at that point in time. Typing in all caps is considered SHOUTING on the internet, and should never be done.

            Having been a ‘news reader’ in the rip and read days of news wires…that weren’t computers, but telegraph/telephone wire communications over 40 years ago, the printing in all caps WAS/IS easier to read for broadcast purposes. Same with tty communications…the precursor to the fax machine and email. We were taught in broadcast journalism classes to type manuscripts in all caps for ease of reading. This is back before your IT days 30 years ago, and long before computers were being used that didn’t fill a room and require formating cards. Etiquette has changed in the era of the internet. Back in the day of newswires that ‘dinged’ with various numbers of bells to indicate importance of the following news story, emotion was not a factor…at least not in print. That was left to the broadcast journalist to provide in a nondescript accent. Given the limited techniques for conveying emotion on some websites the use of all caps and quotation marks has taken on various means of identification. Also, there are some people who are vision impaired who find it much easier to read all caps, rather than mixed case messaging. Suffice it to say that forms, format and etiquette differ depending on the genre.

        Can you please ignore what you don’t like? It makes no difference in the words posted. If you have a comment, make it on the substance of the post, not on personal assumptions. All caps in not shouting, if the whole post is in all caps. SHOUTING is done with SPECIFIC WORDS.

        • Glenn Eades

          Actually, in internet etiquette all caps is SHOUTING, and has been identified and accepted as such ever since the advent of email itself. It is considered rude and impolite, and only done by those who are ignorant, or simply trying to have more visual impact then others on a page, hence “shouting”. http://www.netlingo.com/word/shouting.php it is also considered good etiquette to ask those using all caps to stop shouting, rather than to retaliate as well as out of respect for others, as was done here.

          • Sunshine Kid

            *Which is an “etiquette” that holds that all caps is shouting discounts those with sight impairment, whether by old age or other infirmity. Because I recognize that some people have difficulty with sight, I try to use a little empathy for them, and the “request” to stop using all caps sometimes comes across as impolite. In actual fact, I am from an age where using all caps signified difficulty as in blindness or other sight impairment and therefore refuse to succumb to the convention that all caps relates to shouting. If you know for a fact that someone is shouting and not simply trying to see what is being typed, then I would agree. In this case, I cannot.**

          • Claudia Daniel

            Kind consideration of those who have vision problems but we just hold down control and hit the PLUS sigh or the roller wheel on the mouse to make the type bigger. No need for all caps and it really is more difficult to read.

          • Sunshine Kid

            *One thing that the young generation fails to consider is that many of us oldsters aren’t prone to “learning” anymore. We’re old dogs: Hard to teach new tricks to us.

            For me, this is no problem because I was in the initial batch of computer users (long before Internet, I might add – I still remember the first attempt at computer communications using electronic bulletin boards and 300 baud modems that sounded like fax machines).

            You might not believe this, but I know people my age who will NOT have a cell phone unless all it does is make phone calls and has a keypad that is large enough to see without using a magnifying glass. Texting, WiFi and other abilities are wasted ideas to them. That doesn’t mean they are shouting; it means that the younger generation should hold its temper and understand that the oldsters will never catch up with you (unless they get cranky enough).**

    Joe Biden expressed himself (to all the Americans who watched the debate) as the complete idiot, liar, deceptive and immature person that he is. Ryan may not have had the best of answers overall, but I believe just couldn’t get some information ahead of time. He’ll get my vote.

    God is a liberal. His son was a socialist.

    • Anonymous

      Liberals believe in abortion, God is against abortion – Liberals believe in same sex marriage, God created marriage between a man and a woman. God created mankind in ‘His’ own image and likeness – to someday, become part of his eternal family, liberals dismiss the notion of image and likeness and form their own conclusions as to rules of conduct, which are often times in direct conflict with Gods. His first born son, taught individual responsibility – not redistribution of another’s wealth.

      You couldn’t be more wrong in your understanding of who and what God is. God created the human mind to be fully alert, your stoner mentality is lazy at best and leads to poverty and national downfall.

      • VindicatorX

        I agree with you.

        I guess the same sex marriage crowd has forgotten all about that Sodom and Gomorrah thing, huh?

        Personally I don’t care what people do outside of my household, but I see no real reason to put the force of law behind it. There’s enough real problems in the world that people die over every day that outstrip the importance of the liberal perspective and practice of inverting moral standards and imposing that on the public. When we have a President who is a blatant liar in office, fools like Sam van Almen don’t even appear on the radar for me.

        His post is another attempt to steer the conversation away from where it is going. After all, anyone who thinks insighted and incited are the same word isn’t really up to par intellectually speaking. Check out his next post…

          I understand where you’re coming from – what people do behind closed doors is their own business. Or is it? Say for instance Jeffery Dahmer lived next doors, would it be important to us then? So in the same way, I feel that millions of aborted infants being ripped to shreds from the safety of their mothers womb should be of utmost importance to all Americans.

          Again, openly flaunting your “Gayness” or living in a nation that passes laws and teaches – “it is wrong to call attention to this degenerate behavior” – relays to our youth, a wrong message, and teaches this perverted lifestyle as normal and perfectly exceptable.

          While Christ was still with us, he spoke to the people in city of Capernaum, admonishing them saying, “If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom on the day of judgement than for you.” – Matthew 11:23 – 24
          Will it be any less tolerable for us? Have we not lived far worse than Sodom?

          Now what that tells me at least, this lewd behavior should be eradicated from within our midst as soon as possible because it does matters to God.

          These issues are very real, as well as having a “liar in chief” – along with his administration and with the ever present help of an adoring national media covering his every move – all who – fail to present the truth and facts, simply to retain power is – inexcusable

    “The only thing missing was Biden giving Ryan a wedgie and taking his lunch money.” Yea Kerri but we all know that if Biden had actually tried to pull that off, Ryan would have handled him the way we used to handle bullies back in the pre PC days. He would have used Joes “head for a mop and his butt for a broom” as that graet patriot Hank Williams Jr puts it.
