After the debate, it seems appropriate to reprise an old post.
First, he original post from July … then, some debate snippets.
Both seem rational & hard-working with some degree of moderation … history of working across the aisle.
Sure, they’re boring … and my favorite (Pence) would probably lose … but I’d sure feel better about the election.
Let’s update that a bit …
I’d still prefer either of these guys at the top of the tickets, but now …
I think my guy would win … his conservative views would be a lightning rod, but the dude has enough gravitas to win.
In fact, of all the candidates (including Johnson & Stein), Pence plays as the only adult in the room.
My favorite tweet from last night:
Many others compared Kaine to a yipping dog and suggested that he stay off caffeine.
Most substantial point raised:
Obama / Clinton pulled all troops from Iraq because they couldn’t (wouldn’t negotiate a status of forces agreement.
But, Obama has reinserted American troops without a SOFA agreement.
Certainly weakens their case.
Point that Trump should hammer:
“Look at Pence … I surround myself with good people.”
Since Pence won big, MSM is dismissing the debate as unimportant … kinda like Ohio when it swung to Trump
