Dem. Tim Kaine Turns Vice Presidential Debate Into Bickerfest

-By Warner Todd Huston

Originally published at

The one impression America came away with as the first and only vice presidential debate ended on Tuesday night, October 4, was that Democrat candidate Tim Kaine was more like a yip-yapping Chihuahua instead of the Pitbull that a second chair running mate should be. But he also figured as the perfect running mate for the biggest liar and crook ever to run for the White House because he threw one lie after another at his opponent.

As the debate came to a conclusion several of the flash polls and focus groups said that GOP candidate Mike Pence easily won the debate because he seemed calm, cool and collected. They also said he was more focused, tried to stay within the debate rules, and was far less hyper and contentious than his Democrat rival.

A panel of undecided voters from Ohio, for instance, felt Kaine came off poorly during his bout with Pence. One even called him a “jerk” for interrupting up to 70 times during the debate.

In fact, there is already a video showing the dozens of times Kaine talked past his time and tried to shout down his opponent during his opponent’s time.

Kaine interrupted so much that the transcript of the debate is almost impossible to follow.

Then there was that odd time early in the debate when Kaine interrupted Pence (again) and the moderator, CBS anchor Elaine Quijano, tried desperately to get Kaine to shut up long enough for Mike Pence to finish a sentence.

After Quijano told Kaine to clam up he gave her the most sexist grin and a wink that you can imagine. If Pence had done something like that it would have been all the left could talk about today.

But aside from appearing like a petulant interrupter, Kaine was more insidious by unleashing a torrent of half truths and lies against Pence and Donald Trump over and over again.

For instance, early in the debate, Kaine insisted that raising the minimum wage to never before seen heights would somehow save the economy. But study after study has shown the opposite. Huge hikes in the minimum wage kills jobs.

As an example, one study found that the wage hike in Seattle caused workers to lose hours and benefits and they either ended up making the same they were making before the wage hike or even less.

Kaine also used inaccurate figures to tout Obama’s failing economy when he said Obama has “created 15 million jobs” during his 8 years as president. Unfortunately for for team Hillary, no facts back this up.

Even the liberal Washington Post fact checked this claim and found it to be false.

“The Clinton campaign is clearly fond of saying that 15 million jobs — or, alternatively, 15 million private-sector jobs — were created in the Obama administration,” the paper wrote in August. ” Clinton frequently indicates that she’s talking about the entire Obama administration. She uses phrases such ‘than when they took office’ or ‘in the last 7 1/2 years.’ But that’s 5 million jobs too many.”

Kaine next lied when he said all past Republican presidential candidates released their tax returns to the general public, especially citing President Richard Nixon. But the fact is when Nixon was running in 1968 he only allowed reporters to see his returns in person but never allowed them to make copies and he certainly never released them to the general public. Again, even the left-wing Politifact said Kaine’s claim is a lie.

Another amazingly obtuse statement made by the Democrat nominee was when Kaine said terrorism is not that big of a deal because of the “success” the nation has had fighting terrorism thanks to the Clinton/Obama foreign policy plan. It was truly a bizarre claim.

Kaine said this despite the near monthly terror attacks inside the U.S. homeland and that of its western allies perpetrated by ISIS and its so-called “lone wolf” operatives.

And another Kaine lie: While on the topic of national security, GOP nominee Pence logically insisted that it is a major mistake to put security in the hands of a woman who sponsored an illegal private email server hidden in her house, a server which hackers could have easily (and probably did) obtain the classified information she and her staff (AND the President himself) sent over it. Pence noted that if he or Senator Kaine would have done something similar they’d have ended up in jail.

In reply, Democrat Tim Kaine laughably lied saying that FBI director Comey would not have prosecuted others doing the same thing.

But Mike Pence was 100% right. Even as he decided not to bother recommending that Hillary be prosecuted for her email crime, he also noted that if someone else tried what Hillary did he would go after them with everything he has.

Here is exactly what Comey said about similar cases:

To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a person engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions but that’s not what we are deciding here.

So, Kaine simply lied. Comey did not say what Kaine said he did.

Note the video here cuts off right at the end where Kaine said “That is absolutely false and you know that.”

Finally, in a very quick aside that seemed to sneak by Governor Mike Pence, Kaine also lied when he said 90 percent of the money the Clinton Foundation takes in goes to charity. This lie was probably one of the most blatant of the night.

Mike Pence noted that “Less than ten cents on the dollar in the Clinton Foundation has gone to charitable causes.” Kaine shot back quickly saying, “Ninety percent.”

That was an outright lie by Kaine. Exact numbers are hard to pin down because the groups that track charities have often refused to fully track the Bill and Hillary Clinton foundation. But a recent report came out saying that a far sight less than “ninety percent” goes to actual charities. In fact, the report found that only a tiny 5.7 percent of donations goes to actual charity. The rest all goes to the exorbitant salaries of the Clintons and their cohorts as well as tony office space, employee benefits and bonuses, airfare, and high end hotel rooms.

But you don’t have to believe that report. A more charitable assessment even found that Tim Kaine’s “ninety percent” is a fantasy. In this second report only 15 percent goes to charity while a whopping 85 percent stays in the foundation to pay “expenses.”

These above are just a few of the lies Kaine told during the debate. He also lied about the facts concerning Russia, his running mate’s tax plan, abortion, and Hillary’s own flip flops on immigration. But if I were to cite every single lie, this article would be about 100 pages long.

Suffice to say Hillary Clinton’s Chihuahua really is a perfect fit for the most crooked and dishonest person to ever run for the White House. Yes, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine really do fit together well.
