VP debate tonight, Tues. Oct. 4, 6 pm AZ Time

The sole vice-presidential debate featuring Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine will take place tonight. It won’t be a record-breaker as the first televised Trump/Clinton presidential debate was. By all indications, it will attract not only a lesser crowd, but be more of a draw for committed political diehards. The ninety-minute town hall styled event will begin at 6 PM AZ  time – 9 PM ET.

The VP debate will be broadcast — commercial free — on all four major U.S. networks ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC along with cable news channels including Fox News, CNN, PBS and C-Span. Facebook (with ABC News coverage), Twitter (with Bloomberg coverage) and YouTube (with coverage from PBS), Fox News, Telemundo, Bloomberg, NBC News, and Washington Post) should have everyone covered.

This is a show you’ll only miss if you try hard enough.

There appears to be more focus on the fact that the debate moderator CBS News anchor Elaine Quijano is the daughter of Filipino immigrants than the candidate themselves. If she becomes the diversity interviewer, she’ll beat out Hillary-biased moderator Lester Holt as taking the spotlight from the candidates.  But that may just be the point.

    Tim Kaine—-another disgraceful person who pretends to be Catholic and is upheld by the Catholic Church. Another former seminarian with a black heart.
    And Pence, the Evangelical.

    Good vs. evil right before our eyes, every day now.

    Meanwhile, is Hurricane Matthew what Obama will use to cancel the elections? Sustained winds at 145 mph and the eye of the storm is 25 miles wide. Obama, who has paid no attention to the natural disasters which have plagued our country over the past 8 years may just use this to his advantage.

    Also, I see that a full compliment of our F/A18-Hornets are in Finland.
    Practicing take-off and landings from public highways there.
    Reason given: to see if its feasible to use public highways in case crtical infrastructure is unable to be accessed or is rendered unable to be safely used.

    I’ll never understand why Republicans keep participating in “debates” with moderators who work for leftwing networks that are clearly prejudiced against them. Prior to the first presidential debate, NBC’s Lester Holt was characterized as a straight shooter. By the end of the debate, which I watched from beginning to end, there was no doubt in my mind that he was a straight shooter as described, with both barrels aimed at Donald Trump. If the Republican candidates declined, there would be no debate. Exactly what do we learn from them?

      It’s easy to understand. When not enough conservatives get involved “inside” the Party as precinct committeemen, too many squishy “conservatives” get elected to the RNC, which in turn elects a squishy “conservative” to the Chairman position. Then rather than grab a pair and get out of the Commission on Presidential “Debates,” and have our candidate challenge the other candidate to real debates, anywhere, anytime, we end up with the farces that masquerade as “debates.” The only way to “change” the squishes is to replace them.

      But most conservatives are too busy or something to participate “inside” the Party to elect better, more conservative Republicans to the RNC posts.

      See: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/29/want-real-debate-gotta-change-the-rnc-heres-how/

      I hope Pence does a good job under the circumstances. I predict the “moderator” will ask him about whether he believes in evolution rather than creationism.

      Thank you.

        I assume you’re aware of the ongoing and concerted efforts by McCain’s operatives (on his behalf) to purge the Arizona Republican Party of conservative precinct committeemen. The single reason for that effort is to facilitate the election of McCain-friendly (read RINO) state officers. Conservatives were taken out in precinct after precinct and replaced with McCain functionaries. Most have never shown the slightest interest in working within the Republican Party

        First time in my life, I’ll be voting for a Dem this coming election, I will not even consider voting for the lowlife John McCain ever again.

        If he wins this time around, the AZ GOP is as good as dead.

    by all means bring us more of these outstanding people, our wonderful lobbyist $$$$ fueled uniparty immigration policy is the BEST thing in existence for America and Americans:

    A Guatemalan who admitted he drank a small bottle of whiskey, 12 beers, and used cocaine three times during the 18 hours before he failed to stop for a red light, has been arrested in Phoenix for killing a six-year-old child.

    Trump in Az. today, he might want to mention this awful news if he knows of it.

    Ethnicity / diversity trumps being American these days. I don’t care what Elaine Quijano’s family background is. She was born in America and that should define her. I’m sick to death of hyphenated Americans who define themselves by the places their earlier family members (or they) fled. My grandparents came here and eagerly became AMERICANS. You would find no more patriotic citizens than they were and they instilled that pride in their entire family.

  5. Saguaro Sam says:

    Let’s talk about our failed immigration policies that are killing innocent American citizens.

    Look at this story that just broke on breitbart.com, regarding a tragedy which took place in Phoenix caused by an illegal two days ago.

    Another Arizona connection to funny business.

    An arms dealer named Marc Turi, said to reside in Arizona and the United Arab Emirates with connection to O and Hill.

    Now, federal case against him dismissed in AZ Federal Court
    to shut him up.

    Kaine mentioned john mcStain NUMEROUS, NUMEROUS times…
    F.oxtrot, Ghostrider?!?!?!

    • Observer says:

      After all of his rude interruptions Tim Kaine is now referred to in this household as Tim Pain. He acted like a pre-programmed dummy who had memorized a list of talking points and was going to get those rehearsed sound bites in play regardless of the appropriateness.

  9. Tucson GOP says:

    Kaine proved himself to be a drag on the bottom feeding Clinton campaign. Hillary is bad enough. Imagine this rude brat as her second.
