Ok, this thread went off the deep end with off-topic immaturity…
Try to keep it on topic friends so we can discuss Kaines behavior

-------------------------------------------

Wow, the VP debate was a disaster for the Democratic ticket...

Tim Kaine behaved as a petulant child ignorant of both decorum and simple rules governing a debate..

What could possibly possess Secretary Clinton to tap him for Vice President of The United States.

I can not imagine a Tim Kaine presidency...
His debate behavior belied him to be a narcissist of the highest order who believes rules do not apply...

Kaine's behavior last night was indicative of someone who is losing the fight.

He walked in knowing his "side" was losing and nothing he said last night changed my opinion in the matter.

It seems like there are a lot of people new to politics in these threads.

People don't seem to understand the role of the Vice Presidents and the VP debate.

Vice Presidents are the candidates attack dogs, that's their role. They don't have to look Presidential, they do the dirty work. They also defend their candidate. The main point is that the VP is there for their candidate, not themselves. The entire point of the VP debate is to defend your candidate and attack the opponent.

Kaine fulfilled that role, Pence did not.

All the Dems have Left in the Rebuttal Department is Attaching the Trump Pence Ticket with Character Assassinations considering they are unwilling to Talk about the Real Issues Facing our Country Right Now . The Polar Opposite Political Ideologies of the two Parties was fairly Evident last night . This Election will go down in History as the Most Important Turning Point in American Politics . Socialism Vs. Capitalism , it is up to the Voters Now to Decide their Fate . God Help Us All .

"Don't talk about anything except precisely the very point that I am trying to make because I have no argument for anything else"

Got it!


Kaine's debate performance was much better than Trump's even though he did interrupt Pence about as many times as Trump interrupted Clinton.

Why? Because in between his interruptions there were actual substantive answers. Yes, Pence had a better debate performance but this entire line of attack by Trump supporters is ridiculous because everything you're accusing Kaine of applies at least equally to Trump and Trump utterly lacked substance and[/b in case you forgot, Trump is the one running for PRESIDENT.

This thread is indicative of someone who is losing the fight.

Actually he came into the debate knowing that his "side" was up in the polls following Trump's horrible debate performance, weeklong Twitter meltdown, etc.

Do you really think that aggressive self-delusion isn't a look of desperation?

I get that a lot of you are sleep deprived because you stayed up all night on Monday waiting for a release from the Russians and you got let down. I know you've been licking your wounds for a week. I know that you got a look at Pence in a debate and thought "damnit, why isn't Pence the candidate instead of that crazy person I've been supporting?" but that's no excuse for falling into this level of delusion.

The takeaway for most people will ultimately be that it didn't seem at all like Pence was an actual Trump supporter. It wasn't just his inability to defend Trump — his policy positions didn't even remotely sound like Trump's.

Are they even in the same campaign?

gee, I sarted to write a nice long post when that thread was only one page long and by the time I finished writing it, it was three pages long and closed.

oh well, I am gonna condense that post to a few lines...

Kaine's behavior surprised me really, disappointing in a way. But, I have to say, whatever you say about his behavior during this debate can carry over to trump's behavior in the first.

and, as far as hillary's inability to get an agreement to keep troops in iraq.
remember that great "compassionate" conservative that you's elected into office awhile back? ya know that one that led the charge into iraq to begin with, even calling it a crusade at the beginning? Remember all those oh so close to pornographic pictures that blared on the tv and all the stories of torture? remember how many of yous justified it??
well, somethings just CAN'T BE FIXED!! Iraq just wasn't going to let our troops stay in their country unless they could retain the power to legally hold them accountable. and be honest here, if it was an occupying force here in america that did similar things to our citizens, you would want the same conditions! and the US couldn't accept those terms. period, end of story!!

As I mentioned in the last thread, I think Pence won the debate based purely on optics and demeanor. However, given that the primary purpose of the VP candidate is to advance the ticket, I'd say he failed in that regard, as Trump still managed to lose even though he was not there. Pence simply could not defend Trump, and in many cases didn't even try.

So, my take is that Pence won the debate for Pence, as a possible bid should he run for President next time around. He did not win the debate on behalf of his ticket.

I'm a supporter of neither candidate.
I believe Hillary belongs in jail and i'm fair certain Trump if investigated would belong in jail as well.
With that said -

Pence seemed like a lost child asking for handouts while Kaine came off like a bully abuser totally dominating that debate.
Interruptions or not, you just can't mask that Kaine was slamming Pence on the floor as if Pence had never been involved
in a debate before.

I agree with you.

I do not know if Trump has the humility to look at his performance and see that his meandering style and interruptions were very bad.

Maybe his people can show him how it was a bad look on Kaine, and use that to influence Trump in the next debate.

But undoubtedly, it looked bad for both Kaine and Trump.

I can only hope Trump exercises decorum in the Sunday debate...
Tim Kaine's behavior serves as an example of how not to behave and the Trump campaign would be well advised to learn from last nights debacle/unraveling of Kaine..

The President of the United States is the highest office on the entire planet and should be occupied by a person who is quick to reason and slow to anger…
Not the other way around…

The original thread was closed by a moderator due to people's inability to stay on topic...
I am not a moderator and did not make this decision and was attempting to keep the thread open without zealots derailing it as you are attempting to do...

So I ask again with the utmost of sincerity, try to keep it on topic and if you forget what the topic is go to the first post and read a line by line…
If you go line by line it's easier to understand sentences..

thanks

You're not a very polite person.
You should not be discussing the maturity level of others while at
the same time demonstrating your own very low one.

To wrap up what he said for you as you put it line by line -

Trump supporters are railing against Kaine for doing exactly what trump did.

Hope that helps you Chris.

People don't seem to understand that the VP debate isn't about the Vice President candidates.

Like I tried to explain to people last night, there are no winners in the VP debates...only losers.

Last night, Trump lost.

What I want to know is, as a regular citizen... I never heard of any of these people before, Kaine or Pence. I mean I'd never heard of Biden either. Where do these people come from? I only lightly follow most news and politics, so I mean that isn't too big of a surprise, but I feel like they reached into the Mandela effect and pulled these people out of an alternate dimension. I am not allowed to vote in the country of United States, but I think United States politics is really just a joke.

People that think things are going to change one way or another is just buying into the myth. The world isn't going to blow up or become a utopia, no matter who is president of United States. President and VP especially play such a minor role in the bigger picture of not just the United States, but the world.

Yes, it helps tremendously...THANK YOU, you truly are magic as ur name implies..

Kaine's innocent little boy act failed last night.

By continually flying off the handle, he exposed the desperation of the Clinton Campaign.

And how many lies did he tell?

How many dozen?

so, just how is the post you quoted not on topic. what? we can't point out that trump's behavior in the first debate was worse, and whatever is said of kaine can and should be carried over to trump. heck, it didn't take me long to start wondering if kaine was told to act this way, either to show the trump campaign how it feels, or knowing full well that his supporters would fall into the trap and start knocking kaine for his behavior thus proving just how hypocritical they are!!! oh yes, trump won the debate, oh no, kaine acted so badly he lost!!
both although if you set the standard as to which debate out of the two won, you would have to say that the kaine/pence debate did because kaine's behavior wasn't so bad that it dominated the entire debate and at least we got something out of the vp debate!
