Discussions on the Kaine-Pence debate



Patricia McCarthy: Kaine's and Pence's rumble  . . . "But his interruptions were the key to his failure.  When one cannot let the person with whom he is debating complete a sentence, it betrays fear and a lack of confidence in one's own position or cause.  Kaine lost the debate, hands down.  Not because everything he had to say was wrong, but because he was so afraid he might not get to utter every insult he had practiced.  It was pathetic." . . .
Kaine's debate prep, like Hillary's, was based on the firm belief that the American people are stupid. 
J. Marsolo: Pence wins despite another 'Candy' debate moderator  "Elaine Quijano continued the Candy Crowley debate tradition of favoring the Democrat.  She constantly interrupted Mike Pence while he was attempting to answer questions but never interrupted Kaine to have him focus on what had been asked of him.  She failed to control the debate by allowing Kaine to constantly interrupt Pence." . . .

Hey, Timmie, you really showed us deplorables... . . . "If the best casting director in Hollywood went in search of the perfect actor to play a typical know-it-all, smug, smarmy liberal to represent the Democratic Party on the vice presidential debate stage Tuesday night, he could not possibly have made a better selection than Tim Kaine. " . . . 

Katie Pavlich: Luntz Focus Group: Pence Destroyed Kaine During VP Debate   Frank Luntz 
My focus group literally laughs with Mike Pence's attacks and laughs at Tim Kaine's.
Pence goes high. 📈
Kaine goes low. 📉

VP Debate Debrief – Petulant Kaine Exudes Instability During Vice-Presidential Debate Appearance…  . .  . " And… if there’s one thing as certain as the sun rise in the east tomorrow, it’s the truism that when anything impedes Hillary Clinton’s mission to achieve the presidency they are immediately rebuked. Senator Tim Kaine better get a food taster."
"Remember, they simply repeat the road map they learned from Alinsky: “Isolate, Ridicule, Marginalize”.   To wit Kaine had one objective, focus on the “isolation” objective."
John Podhoretz: Mike Pence wiped the floor with Tim Kaine — but does it matter?  . . . "He seemed determined to bait Mike Pence, but his constant interruptions and preachy assertions that Pence couldn’t possibly defend his running mate succeeded only in making him look annoying and insubstantial." . . .
However... "All of this is about performance, though. When it came to substance, Pence was remarkably disingenuous and dishonest, and in a manner that did not do him credit." . . .

Byron York: Pence gives GOP a boost, but Dems pleased with Kaine attacks on Trump  "Even allowing for spin, Republican and Democratic insiders gathered here at Longwood University drew vastly different takeaways from the vice presidential debate between Mike Pence and Tim Kaine.


"Republicans said: Can you believe what a jerk Kaine was? He wouldn't let Pence say three words before interrupting him. Surely the audience hated that.
"Democrats said: Who cares whether anyone likes Tim Kaine? His job was to plant Donald Trump's greatest hits in the public brain: Miss Universe. Tax returns. Mexican rapists. PTSD. And that's what he did." . . .
Rich Lowry on The Pence Win . . . "1) It changes the media conversation after a terrible week for Trump in the aftermath of last Monday’s debate; 2) Perhaps it will reinforce for Trump–none too soon–the importance of preparation and discipline in a national debate."
