  • Fact-checking Biden's debate performance

    Your editorial on Vice President Joseph Biden's debate performance against Rep. Paul Ryan seems to have somehow ignored several factual errors by the incumbent ("Biden connects," Oct. 13). For starters, Mr. Biden claimed "we weren't told they wanted more...
