Indiana Governor Mike Pence clearly won last night′s 2016 Vice Presidential Debate. Even the ′scientific′ poll from CNN/ORC showed him beating Tim Kaine 48% to 42%. So the ′consensus′ is absolute, without exception! Tim Kaine was dreadful, acting arrogant and rude. He interrupted Mike Pence some 77 times. Even the CBS moderator, Elaine Quijano, scolded Kaine more than once for his rudeness during the VP debate at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Mike Pence also interrupted Kaine some 50 times, but mainly he interrupted Kaine′s interruptions. Overall, Pence behaved as an adult, acting composed and serious.
I have to say that Quijano ran a tighter ship than Lester Holt. Or, at least she tried to, despite Kaine′s behavior. He looked like he was hopped up on crack or meth. Wild eyed, spewing nothing but canned talking points. Tim Kaine has the IQ of a head of lettuce. He can′t even dance, either! After the show at a post-debate party, current Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe, shimmied and shaked with Kaine′s wife on stage. Kaine just stood behind and clapped his hands like an old wind-up, toy monkey.
As far as topics and issues, Pence scored many hits, bring up Hillary Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation. Pence also went on the offensive on the record of Hillary when she was Secretary of State. Especially her role in the rise and spread of ISIS and how the Russians are running amok. Even when Quijano asked Kaine about why the ′reset′ did not work, Kaine immediately deflected to protect Hillary.
Kaine did confirm that Hillary and he support raising taxes and spending more. They don′t care if they blow up the National Debt, doubling it again after Obama has. Kaine completely dropped the ball on economic issues, which he knows nothing about. Mike Pence, on the other hand, knew his numbers and held firm to those policies which have worked well in the past to improve economic growth.
So, there you have it. Mike Pence easily won the 2016 Vice Presidential Debate held last night in Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Tim Kaine acted like a 3 year-old child. He did nothing but lie and be rude. His whole ′script′ was scripted, and as phony as a 3-dollar bill. Mike Pence was authentic, honest, thoughtful and composed. Pence proved who is the more mature and serious VP candidate. Well done, Mike!
