Single VP Debate

I don't know if this country (USA) doesn't think a Vice-Presidential Debate is important because they are of no importance, but a poll taken prior to the debate shows that 66% of the population wasn't going to bother. I must remind people that if anything happens to the President, that the VP has to step up and take over. Democrat Senator Tim Kaine and Republican Governor Mike Pence were at Longwood University in Virginia for this debate. I was hoping for some answers to questions without squabbling but after 13 minutes, they were acting just like Clinton and Trump did on their first debate; 2-year-olds on a playground. Our country is going to be a mess no matter who gets elected.
Mike Pence and Tim Kaine face off at Longwood University for the only vice-presidential debate of 2016

It seems that the rules of a debate do not apply in politics. Do those who monitor those debates even know how a debate is to be conducted? What a hot mess that debate happened to be. I watched a bit, and then gave up.

It was a hot mess from what I watched. Tim Kaine to me, acted like a bully, interrupting while Mike Pence was talking. Very childish and rude. A huge turn off for me with him.

What ticks me off is that before the debate even starts the rules of engagement are given @Corbin5 but do you think anybody follows them? Heck no.

@nanette64 It would serve them right. Dang, each one is so annoying in their own special way. Imagine dealing with either of them for 4 long years. If Gary promises not to smoke pot if president, then OK with me. Jill looks like a stable lady.

My joke in previous political posts about moving to Canada, Australia or Switzerland may come to pass in December @hostessman . This years political climate is insane and you can bet all foreign countries are laughing their butts off.

LOL . . . I think all candidates (including those in the primary) are nothing much in their heads . .

It must be from all the chemicals, pesticides, hormones, steroids and antibiotics in the foods they eat @antonbunot .

I have a political yard sign that says "they all suck, we are all Scre*ed" (um, in trouble is a nice way of putting it). I am proudly displaying it. We watch all the debates including the vice Presidential. During the primaries we watch both party's debates as well. I teach the kids, these people have your future in their hands, pay attention to both parties.

I love that sign @mom210 . The sad thing is the media doesn't even touch on the Green, Independent or Tea Party either. It's like, there's more than just '2' parties. And truly where it starts is who is voted into Congress because those are the ones who usually run for president. As far as I'm concerned 'most' of Congress needs to be fired.

@nanette64 Ohh yes, I totally agree. I would love to see all of them gone this year, but I know they will not be. It is so annoying. I wish they would put all of the candidates on the debate stage. I think it would help open eyes that there are actually tons of people running, not just 2 parties. There are some really smart guys in the other parties with real solutions, but they will never get the attention they deserve.

@mom210 And then of course we have the Electoral College (which should have been abolished 100 years ago) who determines the president anyway.

I just hope that whoever does get elected in has more sense once in then what each is showing now on several of the important issues this country needs addressing and fixing . . .
