But there were more important things that were revealed in the debate, The first and most significant is that Tom Kaine can be one nasty SOB. Roger Stone called him an obnoxious asshole, rude prick.
Keep in mind that if Hillary Clinton wins the election and her health fails her, Kaine will be sitting on the thrown. Think about that long and hard, a nasty Jesuit liberation theory advocate as president.
As for Pence, he revealed his war hawkish side, which really did not contradict Donald Trump's position.
Pence said during the debate:Pence is babbling about "the Russian bear"! Christ almighty! He sounds like Hillary Clinton. Pence must go!— Justin Raimondo (@JustinRaimondo) October 5, 2016
The United States of America needs to begin to exercise strong leadership to protect the vulnerable citizens in over 100,000 children in Aleppo. Hillary Clinton's top priority when she became secretary of state was the Russian reset. After the Russian reset, the Russians invaded Ukraine and took over Crimea. The small and bullying the leader of Russia is now dictating terms to the United States to the point where all the United States of America, the greatest nation on Earth, just withdraws from talk about a cease-fire while that a mere Putin puts a missile defense in Syria while he marshaled the forces and begins — look, we have got to lean into this with strong, broad-shouldered American leadership that begins by rebuilding our military...It's time to recognize that whoever wins the election, the United States is going into a dark period. Our only hope is that it will just be a passing cloud. It will for sure though be a very dark cloud regardless of its length.
About Aleppo and Syria, I truly do believe that what America ought to do is immediately establish Safe Zones so that families with children can move out of those areas, work with our Arab partners real-time, right now to make that happen. The provocations by Russia need to be met by American strength. If Russia continues to be involved in this barbaric attack on civilians in Aleppo, the US needs to be prepared to strike military targets of the Assad regime, to prevent them from this humanitarian crisis taking place in Aleppo.
There is a broad range of other things we ought to do as well. We should deploy a missile defense shield to the Czech Republic and Poland, which had Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama pulled back on...
I understand why you want to change the subject and let me be clear on this Russians thing. What we are dealing with is — there is an old proverb that says the Russian bear never dies, but hibernates. This foreign policy from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has awakened a Russian aggression that first appeared a few years ago with their move into Georgia and Crimea and into the wider Middle East. All we do now is full of our arms and say, "We are not having talks anymore." We need to marshal the resources of our allies in the region and end the immediate — we need to act and act now to get people out of harm's way...
The safe zones would have to be, as the senator said, there is a framework that has been recognized by the international community, but the United States needs to be prepared to work with others in the region to create a route for safe passage, and to protect people in those areas, including with a no-fly zone.
