On full display last night was the left’s approach to dealing with their “political enemies.” These people have more interest in “dialog” with ISIS and terrorists in general rather than try to change hearts and minds on public policy matters. As with every thing else with liberals, they most often accuse others of the very thing they are themselves guilty of, bullying other people is one such example. The natural outcome, when they win elections, is to use the force of the government to bully the populace – fascism, really.
Mr. Pence, in my view, showed enormous restraint in dealing with this tiresome clown. I know I’d have told him to save the filibustering and rude interruptions for the Senate floor. It was evident from the start that this was going to be Mr. Kaine’s conduct for the duration of the “debate” with a willing accomplice in the moderator.
Incidentally, one can always tell how effective the left think the moderator was by looking at the criticism they receive (from the left) after these “debates.” With the Matt Lauer forum criticism as a baseline, Mr. Holt and Ms. Quijano must have done splendidly in order to be spared their wrath.
When asked why 60% of voters distrust Mrs. Clinton, the imbecile replied, “Elaine, let me tell you why I trust Hillary Clinton. Here’s what people should look at as they look at a public servant. Do they have a passion in their life that showed up before they were in public life? And have they held onto that passion throughout their life, regardless of whether they were in office or not, succeeding or failing?”
Aside from being a bunch of utter crap, the summary is this; outcomes don’t matter, it’s all about the intention. A typical example is Obamacare, we “intended” to cover x millions of uninsured but if it ruins every thing else, that’s okay; we had the passion, you see. Mrs. Clinton spent 8 years in the Senate using it as a stepping stone to run for President; during this time, none of this “passion” showed up at all – not a single bill was sponsored by her to do any of the things she claims to want to do now – to make our lives better. That’s right, she DID NOT SPONSOR A SINGLE BILL (to “fix” any of the problems she purports to know, now, how to “fix”) during her tenure in office!
Finally, regarding the Putin nonsense; who was it, Mr. Kaine, that told Mr. Medvedev before the 2012 election, to let “Vladimir know” that he was going to be more “flexible” AFTER the elections? What did this convey to Mr. Putin, other than weakness and who ran the State Department at the time?
