So far, Tim Kaine is starting out strong by ?completely ignoring the moderator's question and doing some kind of stump speech?

Re: Vice-Presidential Debate: Night Only
Pence starts his own introduction by complaining about "the failing Obamacare" and the "war on coal".

Annnnd...we're off into crazy-land!

Man, Tim Kaine, though...I just can't get over how much he looks like a Batman-series villain.

Or Munster, maybe?

Re: Vice-Presidential Debate: Night Only
Pence just rolled off six dog whistle terms on immigration. I wonder if the zeds woke up when they heard those?

But then he keeps hitting on mocking Tim Kaine for preparing for the debate. 'How long did you spend on that? Got a lot of lines in there'

Same as Trump did - making light of being prepared.

So...weird...

Didn't you know? Trump is the least-insulting person.

Re: Vice-Presidential Debate: Night Only
Why bother watching the debate when the Time Lords at the RNC have already told us the outcome?

Seriously? These guys really need to learn how to "cyber". Maybe they could hire Trump's kid. I heard somewhere he is a wiz at the "cyber".

Sad to say, on presentation and demeanor I think Pence is 'winning' this debate. Kaine keeps interrupting and interjecting rudely.

Yeah, I'd say he's not being as rude about it as Trump was, but he's definitely interrupting a pretty ridiculous amount. And Pence tends to let him.

Of course, part of the problem is, I'm feeling equally frustrated as Pence keeps saying things that are factually false, or denying things we've actually SEEN ON VIDEO that Trump said, so...it's hard to not want to call him out on that.

But, sure, it means Kaine is coming off less well.

At an hour in...I can't say I'm seeing an easy winner, here. I think if Pence had been running as either Romney or McCain's running mate - and Kaine didn't have the "but TRUMP" card to play - then Pence would be in the lead, EASILY. But he's not. He's Donald Trump's running mate, and he isn't doing any kind of good job defending him. While Kaine is doing just fine as Clinton's fire support.

Pence and Trump have opposing ideas about dealing with Russia. Interesting.

That's the thing getting to me - if Pence was running as any other candidate's VP, I think he'd be doing much better than he is. Having to dodge bullets well-aimed at Trump is a disadvantage to him.

Re: Vice-Presidential Debate: Night Only
It appears that Mike Pence’s sole job here is to deny that the Donald Trump everyone has watched on the campaign trail is the guy everyone watched on the campaign trail. "Wha-? He never said such a thing! Why I never! I don't know who you're talking about. Clinton and Kaine are being mean - they're insulting us!"

Pence's blatant lies are kind of ridiculous, It's not even subtle, it's stuff that is provably on record false.

Re: Vice-Presidential Debate: Night Only
Wow, did Pence just step into it by bringing up their respective Foundations... but Kaine's response was a bit shaky. Definitely could have been stronger.
