Common man! You’ve gotta be kidding me right? We gotta call it like, the former New York Jets great wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson would say, while watching this painfully “I feel like gauging my eyes out!” vice presidential debate.
This was such a serious debate I even burned my homemade popcorn! I apologize to the entertainment gods of Popcorn, as my fabulous idea for an entertaining evening chomping on chocolate Popcorn backfired!
Be that as it may, it’s imperative that we all read between the lines of what was actually being said at Longwood University, Virginia, Tuesday night October 4th, 2016. I have a bunch of clips of what I heard when Mike Pence and Tim Kaine were going at it like a College Professor versus a middle school debate champion respectively. Enjoy the following “serious policy” discussion that will certainly make America great again!
In the Bayou, I guarantee there’s a sock puppet ventriloquist missing! I mean we must be cruising downtown on Bourbon street New Orleans, destination; muddy potholes! If it’s safe to swear I still cannot understand why this always happens in the middle of the mud wrestling match! If you don’t know which way is up, well folks welcome to the silly debate between vice presidents and yes they make the ticket wait, a minute they vice presidents reveal who is at the top of the ticket or how wise or not so smart the Presidential candidates truly are! Hold your noses and enter the ring the mudslinging is just beginning;
We begin at about 12.23 minutes into the televised debate:
Candidate Kaine: “You guys Love Russia! You both have said Vladimir Putin is a better leader than our President Obama!”
Candidate Pence: “In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of state, where she was the chief Architect of Obama administration foreign policy, we see entire portions of the world, particularly the middle east literally spinning out of control! The situation we are watching in Syria is a result of a weak, feckless and failed policy that Hillary Clinton helped lead and create”
Kaine: Interrupts Pence ” You guys love Russia!”
Pence: Interjects, “Newly and emboldened aggression of Russia, in Ukraine and Krimea“ Kaine interrupts again speaking over Pence and Moderator.
Kaine: “You are Donald Trumps Apprentice.”
Pence: “The campaign of Clinton and Kaine has been an avalanche of insults! Donald Trump has built a business and brings extraordinary business acumen to the table!”
Kaine: “And Trump didn’t pay taxes and lost a Billion dollars a year?”
Pence: ” We have weakened Americas position and place in the world and stifled her economy, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of state, oh common!
Moderator: “Gentlemen we will get back to the Russia question later in the program. Kain interrupts again.
Kaine: ” I would like to chime in! Hillary was there when Russia pressed the reset button, helped sign the Iranian deal without firing a shot! Helped wipe Osama Bin Ladin off the face of the earth and pull all American troops out of Iraq
Pence: “Hillary Clinton failed to negotiate a “status of troops agreement” and got out of Iraq creating a vacuum and now ISIS is in control of vast territorial land.
Moderator: ” Governor Pence, you have said Trump is thoughtful compassionate and steady, yet 67% of voters say he’s too risky a choice and 65% think he doesn’t have the temperament to be President? Why do you think Donald Trump is too erratic?
Kaine: “Hillary is the “You are hired candidate and Donald Trump is the “You are fired, candidate!” “I think that is not a hard choice!” Aha, Bingo Bingo! can you hear the bell ring we are just warming up here and having tons of fun!”
Pence: “Hillary had a pay for play deal going on at State department?”
Moderator: “Gentlemen the people at home cannot hear or understand either of you if you keep speaking over each other!”
Kaine on the economy here is what our plan is: ” First (1st) we invest in Manufacturing jobs and clean energy jobs of tomorrow. second(2nd) we invest in the workforce from Pre-K-12, college, debt free college tuition for families making $125,000 per year. Third (3rd), we promote fairness by (a) raising the minimum wage and (b) by paying women equal pay for equal work. Fourth (4th) plan is to grow small businesses and Fifth(5) a tax plan that targets tax relief for the middle class and small businesses and asking the Rich to pay more because they benefitted more as we came out of the recession to pay their fair share!” Trumps Plan will eliminate the federal minimum wage, give massive tax cuts for the very Rich top earners. The problem Elaine (Moderator), this is what we did 10 years ago when we had the deepest recession since depression day of the 1930’s.
Moderator: “On that point New York times released Trump’s tax returns from 1995, showing Donald Trump had not paid Federal Income taxes, Governor Pence do you think that is fair?
Pence: “What you just heard folks is this from Hillary; More Taxes about $2 Trillion in new spending, more deficits, more Debt, more Government and if you all think that’s working, look at the other side of the table or ticket! The policies of this administration have run us into a ditch! The worst economic recovery since the depression. This whole riff about Donald Trump not paying taxes? Donald has created ten of thousands of jobs and has pays payroll taxes, local, state and excise taxes. Give me a break, jeez!”
Kaine: “Trump stood on stage last week and when Hillary Clinton said, “You haven’t paid taxes for a number of years,” Trump responded quickly by saying “That means I’m smart!”
“It’s smart not to pay Taxes? Smart not to pay for the Military, smart not to pay for Education, for Teachers and for those of us who pay for those things i guess we must be stupid?”
Moderator: “what about social security?”
Kaine: “We will protect social security it’s the greatest program the Government has ever produced!”
Pence: ” We will meet our obligation to seniors no change to current status”
At this point, I hear you, folks! Where is the beef? I’m about to pull all my hair out one at a time! The country is burning and the emperor is naked! And we need some seriousness at the highest levels of power, translating into America being the shining beacon city on the hill that we all have grown to know and love! The level of discourse has to be raised by sane minds, for crying out loud! We need the Government and its Obese and oppressive structure torn down to smithereens and “live and let live” so we can be free citizens again! Liberty! Instead, we get this smarmy caffeine-happy ventriloquist on one side debating a cool calm collected college professor? It’s time to watch the muppet show; I can’t miss my favorite episode, “Insult Driven Campaign!” I just may need a shot of Jack Daniels! smooth my day before I start hard lungs out whistling for the mothership to beam me up! For the sake of humanity, I will try to stay strong Scotty!
