Quiet down, now TIm. The grown-ups are talking
During last nights debate, you saw Mike Pence demolish rival Tim Kaine. It wasnt even close. Pence came across as measured, well-versed in the facts, and - dare I say the p-word - presidential. Kaine, on the other hand, came unglued.
Hillarys VP spent the night in a wild-eyed fit of interrupting, stammering, and painfully canned jokes that landed with a thud. He quickly became tiresome so, if you managed to make it all the way to the end, congratulations. You have one more accomplishment than Hillary Clinton.
How about a video of moderator 'follow up questions ' ?
Pence = 7
Kaine = 0
How about interruptions by the moderator ?
Just another moderator in the mold of "candy" Crowley, appealing to the Libtards !!
Why put folks through a double torment.
And why do Republicans insist on a liberal moderator. Should have had a conservative one to balance things out. Same sort of thing happened to the last Romney/0bama debate; they were all over Mitt and laid back with 0bozo.
After the Mitt mess in 2012 the GOP should have said no more debates, period. The format is rigged & it’s not going to change.
I watched some of the video but only made it up to 24 interruptions before I had to hit done.
This Creepy Kaine guy is an infuriating little rumpswab, like a yappy little dog yapping until you want to tell the owner, which in this case is Hillary, to put a muzzle on it...
But then the Left would taunt with their childish voices.
Kaine seemed unhinged to me. Is he all there or does he not fire on all cylinders?
The Republicans don't insist on a liberal moderator
The election committee who chooses the moderators just 'happen' to all be DemoRats , or ..
just more evidence of 'non-partisan' politics while "the fix" is in !
I made it to #6 before needing to de-cootify myself.
Which election committee? What is their authority?
Kaine was so bad that the bad moderating will be lost in the mess that Kaine made unwatchable last night.
They would, but the GOP could just say we are no longer going to be a punching-bag for the mainstream media.
I have never bought into ‘the moderator was biased’, as an excuse for a bad debate performance.
But last night was too much to pretend it wasn’t happening.
Pence would mention e-mails...Kaine and moderator would talk over him.
Pence would mention HRC wants to fund abortions...they would talk over him.
Once, she asked Kaine a question...he did his 2 minutes...and then she turned and asked Pence a new question, completely new topic. Pence said, no I get to respond...so she grudgingly doles out 20 seconds. What the heck?
And then there were all the ‘how long have you supported Trump beating his wife’ questions.
And Pence still won.
How are the Debate Moderators Chosen? The moderators are selected by the CPD.
The CPD uses three criteria to select its moderators: a) familiarity with the
candidates and the major issues of the presidential campaign; b) extensive
experience in live television broadcast news; and c) an understanding that the
debate should focus maximum time and attention on the candidates and their
views. The moderators alone select the questions to be asked, which are not known
to the CPD or to the candidates. They do not meet with the campaigns, nor do the
campaigns have a role in moderator selection. Starting in 1996, the CPD has used
a single moderator for all of its debates in order to keep the focus on the candidates
and their positions. end snip
Kaine looks like The Joker.
Seemingly to only choose liberals who don’t seem to want to or can follow the rules they lay out for the debaters.
Would LOVE to see a video of all of the times the disgraceful moderator interrupted Pence, especially at the end of his comments
They should keep microphones OFF while the other person speaks... and keep it that way throughout the debate!
