33. Oh, got it. Two things helped Biden out back then.

 

First, Ryan is really stupid. He's considered some sort of leading light on the right, but that's only because they have nobody better. Biden easily outmatched Ryan. This time Biden shared the stage with a lot of other smart, competent people, so he needed to work harder to stand out.

Second, and I hate to say it, but he's definitely slowed down in the last few years. I've seen the difference in several of his appearances over the past year. He doesn't have the sharpness he used to have. Five years ago he probably would have had a quick comeback, but this time he just couldn't come up with a good answer.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
