Policy discussion in this election? I don't think so.

WHAT I SAW AT THE VP DEBATE

Firstly, the CBS moderator very quickly lost control of the debate when Kaine repeatedly interrupted Pence, during Pence's designated speaking time or rebuttals.

Throughout the entire debate Mike Pence conveyed a calm, powerful, yet polite and respectful presence. Tim Kaine appeared visibly nervous and fidgety throughout. Tim Kaine was RUDE, RUDE, RUDE!!

The debate's first question went to Kaine, and he did not even answer the question, choosing to make up his own points.

If you verify how much speaking time each candidate actually was provided (someone will track all the statistics like that online) I would guess that Kaine spoke at least 50 percent more than Pence. And again, that was because Kaine very rudely interrupted Pence nearly everytime, and the moderator failed to put a muzzle on the RUDE KAINE. I watched the debate with a small group from both political parties, and an older Democrat woman said that Kaine reminded her of Richard Nixon (that was not a compliment!).

If something happens to President Trump, VP Pence will have a smooth transition to POTUS.

If something happens to President Hillary, God help us - VP Kaine will quickly display to the world what a total imbecile he is.

The real question is: If something happens to Hillary would you want Kaine as president? NO. Pence wins. So Trump makes the right choice for the nation.

11:17, nice fantasy, kid ... and after he's done reviewing everyone's disability, & changing the legal definition of blindness to something that you can understand, Donald's going to build a wall & make Mexico pay for it, deport @ 16 million undocumented immigrants with his deportation task force, ban Muslims from immigrating to the United States, end the gun violence epidemic, bring back the jobs (especially the coal jobs, even though nobody wants to buy our dirty coal), lower taxes on the wealthy so that even more of their wealth will trickle down (why it has to trickle up first, I don't understand) magically creating millions of low paying jobs (he wants to abolish the minimum wage), part the red sea, change water into wine & walk on water after quieting a storm.

He has proven that the American People will believe anything as long as you give them some scapegoats to hate on.

Pence mopped the floor with his snotty little Rockhurst counterpart. All I heard from Kaine was straight from the Whine and Cheese party! Why don't the democrats throw in some optimistic language? Why don't they talk about how good things are going and how Hillary is the best suited to continue all of the fantastic good times we are experiencing today - especially in the inner cities? Why don't they talk about all of the corruption that has been exposed over the last 3 decades? Because they cant - they won't - they want to be sure Americans are dependent on big government. The last thing they want is for people to actually be free and have lower taxes and more money in they're pockets. They believe that you have no business running your own lives and they are going to be the ones who mandate how we live - sounds a bit Russian to me. America needs to wake up and be stronger than ever - right now.

Kaine's been spouting that Rockhurst Ignatian inspired motto: "Men For Others". Last night he morphed it to: "Mean, Stuttering Interrupter".

yeah - obviously a Pence win - and the VP is a big deal this time - not really sure if either candidate will be able to sustain for 4 years in office. He is the voice of reason in a sh!t storm of mud. Vote TRUMP!
