As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || The Interruption Debate

“Don’t interrupt me while I’m interrupting.”

It’s one of those famous Winston Churchill quotes, and it applies nicely to last night’s vice presidential debate.

Sen. Tim Kaine came in with an obvious strategy to rudely interrupt Gov. Mike Pence every chance he got. Democrats love pulling this kind of tactical nonsense during debates — for example, Al Gore’s stagey sighing against George W. Bush and Joe Biden’s demented laughter while Paul Ryan spoke — since they don’t respect Americans and aren’t interested in giving them a fair hearing between the candidates.

I was a little concerned at first that Pence was going to try to be too “above it,” but he thankfully began some doing some interrupting himself so he could at least get a few points in. Once Kaine got some of his own medicine, he seemed to behave himself a little better.

  1. There is a genuine possibility that a President Hillary could become physically (or psychologically) incapable of discharging her duties as POTUS in the first four years of her administration–given her rapidly deteriorating health. That puts Kaine in the Oval Office–a catastrophic development for the United States.

    Second point: for the three or four people left in the United States who don’t understand that our corporate press, in its entirety, is pro-Hillary and anti-Trump, last night’s pre-debate, debate and post debate “analysis” and behavior of the MSM should convince them they were mistaken in their initial assessment. We’ve never seen such a politicized press aimed at destroying a Republican presidential candidate.

  2. I was relieved Pence finally interrupted Kaine. His lack of emotion or passion really bothered me. Now, I feel Hillary’s health is even more a concern after Kaine’s obnoxious behavior last night. It truly is frightening that he would be a heartbeat away from the presidency if Hillary wins.

    • I have to disagree with you a little, Granny. I thought Pence practically oozed passion in spots, particularly when talking about his faith and abortion. I think it was one of the few times in my life when I felt a politician was being utterly sincere. Totally agree with you on Kaine though.

      • We turned off the debate early, just couldn’t stand the interruptions. So glad to hear I was wrong about Pence. We should have watched til the end.

  3. It is time for a serious discussion about choosing moderators for Presidential debates. The current system of choosing people for their bias or political views is not workable or fair to the public. Television talking-heads only follow their employers bias, or try to walk a fine line between their own professional future and something that looks and sounds professional.
    Professional – that’s the word missing from the debates. There are professional moderators who leave all bias, all emotions outside the debate venue and allow the opposing factions a chance to state their positions clearly and without interruption.

    This election’s debates have devolved into a unfair and divisive debate between the moderators and only one candidate. That’s not a debate, that’s a televised ambush.

    • Agree. These “debates” aren’t really debates at all but more like gotcha sessions, or whipped cream pie throwing contests. The citizenry would be far better served if they were actual debates, following proper, well established rules of debate, to include the behavior of the moderators as well as the proper give and take of the debaters. We’ll never see that day, sadly, as long as the MSM runs the debates. The last people on Planet Earth to serve as moderators and questioners in these debates are members of the MSM.

      Here’s just one example of how a proper debate should be conducted, and there are many others. It’s high school stuff, but would better serve us in these Presidential rodeos.
