Biden showed lack of respect
Regarding the vice presidential debate, I wish that Joe Biden had considered the example he set for youngsters who might have been watching. The smirking/laughter/interruptions only reflected rudeness and condescension — the type of behavior against which educators fight every day.
If he were a student, he would have been sent to a time-out room and made to apologize. Respect was lacking. How would Joe feel if his children had been treated in that manner?
Biden is a better person than that, but he surely didn’t show it during the debate.
