"They're going to be pouring Jolt Cola down his throat. He'll have a bayonet in his teeth," he said, before warning that it could present a "high wire act" for the gaffe-prone Biden.

GOP contender Mitt Romney delivered a well-received performance in Wednesday’s debate, with polls showing most viewers believed he beat the president. Many liberal supporters of Obama also expressed disappointment with the president’s showing.

On Sunday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, also warned Republicans that he expected Biden to perform well on Thursday to help the Democratic ticket regain momentum.

Priebus said that while the gaffe-prone Biden has "of late put his foot in his mouth in very public ways, he was still a "gifted orator." Priebus said Biden is "very good at rhetoric, is very relatable."
