every american. mitt romney, his experience, ideas, and solutions are uniquely qualified to get this job done. at a time we have a jobs crisis, wouldn't it be nice to have a jobs creator in the white house? a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic that promotes opportunity and jobs. mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues are blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding principles. the choice is clear, and the choice rests with you. >> thank you both again. this concludes the vice- presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate

7:35 pm
rying to give detailed isss and show his command of the issues. mr. ryan's answer is, as comprehensive as he was allowed to be, not a game changer but joe biden was on offense. a >> i remember him saying that nothing he just said was true. this is something the democrats have been clamoring for since last week. >> huffing and puffing suggesting that he was obfuscating and not able to proposals.romney's and are the details that are consistent with the facts. spinning has already begun. the campaign manager making the argument that mr. ryan was unable to explain the details and defend them among the various proposals. senior adviser to the romney campagin in that joe biden was

7:41 pm
it projects weakness. when we look weak, or adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of ma larky. >> why is that so? >> bass not a single thing he said is accurate. >> things got more heated when the discussion turned to domestic issues. joe biden attacked mitt romney about his comment of 47% of americans seeing themselves as victims. it's something the president did not do. >> for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives, my friend in a spheech in washington said 30 per of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor are romney pays in his federal income tax. >> when barack obama was elected, his party controlled everything. they had the act to do everything of of their choosing. look where we are right now. >> while there were no obviously gaffes by either side, both men continued
7:42 pm
throwing jabs. even questioning each other's promises to cut taxes. >> it's not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. >> has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times actually. >> it is t has never been done before. >> tonight there were also some heated conversations about medicare, social security, even abortion. the debate about who scored the most points is just getting started. back to you. >> bay area democrats and republicans watched the debate closely. let's start with the republicans. rita williams is at pinky's pizza in walnut creek be where many voter are calling this a win for ryan. >> reporter: however the pros wind up scoring this debate, this highly partisan crowd of republicans here in walnut creek tonight say they think
7:43 pm
their man definitely has won and has kept the momentum going that mitt romney started when he bested the president in their debate last week. in a nutshell, i don't think biden advanced their cause because of his surely attitude and his out right lie on libyan force security. ryan is being patient but he cannot overwhelm how rude joe biden is right now. >> he's more concise. he's more red sent. joe biden is just spinning his wheels cause they have a pretty good feeling that they're going to lose in november. >> he keeps on the subject and he is not playing any name calling games. he's being very very controlled and very who will point. >> you listen to ryan, he's clear, precise. he knows what he's talking about. i don't believe joe biden. >> ryan is staying on target. he's staying with the facts.
7:44 pm
biden is taking his gloves off and just going after interruptions and not making himself clear. >> reporter: now, with we know that whoever won this debate tonight, usually historically hassing the to do with who we wind up voteing for for president. it's more considered an audition for the understudies who might want to be president some day. folks here think that joe biden was disrespectful. they think their man paul ryan was on target and they think it will carry had him to victory in november. i'm sure that my colleague rob roth had a very different take, though. he is with the democrats in san francisco. >> very different. the debate watch party here at the south of had market nightclub is about wrapping up. folks here say they're going home happy. perhaps 200 democrats showed up to watch vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan
7:45 pm
square off. the party is hosted by the organization technology for obama. democrats say a lot of riding on tonight and that joe biden came through. with president barack obama's lackluster performance in the last debate supporters were hoping the veteran biden would show energy and passion and in the process regain momentum from the republicans. they say he did. >> we're lacking for vice president joe biden to show his experience when talk to be representative ryan. vice president biden has done this before. hopefully he is not afraid to be fies ehopefully he can really get to the main talking points and show the people where we think the country is headed the next four years. >> he's clear. he's articulate. paul ryan, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have his facts together. he's been there, sew knows the behind the scenes, so he's really sort of giving us flow by flow what's been going on
7:46 pm
for the last four years. >> democrat say vice president joe biden needed to avoid any gaffes and paint ryan as the face of the conservative wing of the republican party and who supports severe spending cut, changes to medicare and they lack foreign policy experience. >> i think the president is an excellent president. he is a very decent man. sometimes he's too desefnts joe biden is showing that you have to say what the facts are even if it means calling swownt when they're saying something that's not true. >> i think he's being really authentic and he knows the facts and because he's smiling, i think he's smiling because he knows that ryan is lying. >> paul ryan's lies, he's calling them out one by one. >> we're back live. so democrats here say they're happy with the vice president preachesness. there are two more presidential debates before the voters get
