Lot of non-answers in this debate. Pence talked about a vaccine rather than the importance of an orderly succession if the obese, frail and elderly President who is sick with Coronavirus, and Harris just chatted about her history.

Pence just made a major interruption, and is being allowed to talk well over his time. The moderator tonight doesn't face as big a challenge as Chris Wallace did, but she's also not demonstrating any interest in controlling the debate.

6 ( +18 / -12 )

35 minutes into the debate and Pence hasn't answered a single question from Susan Page. No concrete plans. There really needs to be real time fact checking.

6 ( +20 / -14 )

*In response, Pence said: "Our nation has gone through a very challenging time this year. But I want the American people to know that *from the very first day President Donald Trump has put the health of America first."

This is directly contradicted by Trump’s own words from the Woodward tapes. I wonder how his supporters will spin this.

Pence, as slimey as his boss.

6 ( +23 / -17 )

Pence is really pompous. Not a good look.

8 ( +22 / -14 )

I'll give Pence credit - he's a professional politician and can play the hand he's given...

The problem is his hand is empty - how can you tell people to vote for you when in six months during your administration, more Americans have died than in all the wars since 1945?

That the President deliberately lied to the American people saying the virus was "just the flu" when he knew is was a "killer", "deadly" and "like the plague"?

That the President flouted his own CDC recommendations and held a ceremony that turned into a super-spreader event infecting 35 (to date)?

Keep us safe? This President essentially launched a bio-terror attack on our country....

He can't keep himself or his wife safe, let alone 330 million other Americans...

You can be the greatest orator in the world, but you'll lose when confronted with those facts...

6 ( +20 / -14 )

Well, at least it's reasonably civilized and a bit more like a traditional debate.

15 ( +16 / -1 )

How many times has Harris had to say “Mr Vice President, I am speaking”?

4 ( +17 / -13 )

Pence doesn't come off like a totally rabid idiot like his boss. But he does come off like a programed robot in defending Trump and his policies. Of course that's his job. But it's unpersuasive.

7 ( +18 / -11 )

Pence is a fraud, same as the big clown..

7 ( +20 / -13 )

Kamala Harris speaks from the heart, Pence speaks according to a script.

8 ( +23 / -15 )

Another hopeless moderator. Pence has completely ignored most of the questions. He began his abortion answer with the Iraq war!

8 ( +17 / -9 )

The American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country," 

And Pence mentioned about America sacrificing, a sacrifice that really wouldn't have been necessary if Trump did his job and quit blubbering off his mouth and quit spreading domestic terrorism.

Kamala Harris speaks from the heart, Pence speaks according to a script.

Pence is a yesman, a robot. What do ya expect outta that joker?

9 ( +17 / -8 )

yawns is it me or it this debate boring ? At least we had quite the show - not high level though- with Trump playing the unchained bully!

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Camala Harris's voice seems a bit off. Over-pronunciation of her words, and a thick, almost slurring of her words. She sounds as if she's been a bit over-medicated during her pre-preparation for the debate. Maybe she's suffering from stage fright?

-10 ( +15 / -25 )

Another hopeless moderator. Pence has completely ignored most of the questions. He began his abortion answer with the Iraq war!

Agreed.

Moderator: You've run out of time, and we have to move on.

Pence: I want to carry on for another two minutes.

Moderator: Whatever you say, what a perfect segue.

6 ( +13 / -7 )

How about that final question to the VP?

hate to break this to y’all who think the Mod is a biased bully, if your Prez didn’t keep saying he can’t lose and won’t leave, there’s be no reason to ask it

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Pence is really pompous. 

I love it! Especially when he’s talking and then says, “since you brought that up senator...” then he kills her. For example, when Pence said speaking of Harris’ record as a prosecutor , it’s strange that she doesn’t believe a grand jury can review evidence in the Breonna Taylor and make the correct judgment. That was a precise dagger that hit its target. You just know Harris has prosecuted thousands and has never had issues with a grand jury a la breonna taylor.

Pence was surgical and broke her down.

I find it interesting that Harris was calling Biden a racist with a history just as little as a year ago and now she’s hooked up her wagon with his; but she still uses racism as a reason not to vote for Trump. So she’s telling us to vote for a guy she was calling a racist. She’s just so full of it and all over the place.

-7 ( +15 / -22 )

VP Pence totally destroyed Harris in this debate, despite the biased moderator.

Pence is really pompous

You've got Pence and Harris mixed up.

How about that final question to the VP?

hate to break this to y’all who think the Mod is a biased bully, if your Prez didn’t keep saying he can’t lose and won’t leave, there’s be no reason to ask it

Granted, Pence should have made clear that barring obvious massive voter fraud, if they lose the election, he and Trump will leave the White House Jan.20, 2021.

The 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has said Biden should not accept the results if they lose. What's up with that?

-11 ( +12 / -23 )

Granted, Pence should have made clear that barring obvious massive voter fraud, if they lose the election, he and Trump will leave the White House Jan.20, 2021.

He couldn't say that, because it isn't true.

The 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has said Biden should not accept the results if they lose. What's up with that?

This also isn't true. Clinton said Biden should not concede until all the votes are counted.

Moderator: You've run out of time, and we have to move on.

Yes, whenever VP Pence is destroying Harris, it's time to move on! LOL

-12 ( +10 / -22 )

Was I just imagining it, or was Pence avoiding half the questions. I've lost count the number of times he said 'Let me first respond to Harris' previous comment'. And when he finishes, there's conveniently no time left to answer the moderator's original question. Reminds me of the Mastermind sketch by the Two Ronnies.

I missed the start, so I'm watching it with a time lag. I haven't spotted the fly on Pence's head yet. As some people have said, the fly must have been attracted to whatever was coming out of Pence's mouth.

Score, so far: Biden-Harris 2, Trump-Pence 0.

6 ( +14 / -8 )

Both were OK, Pence was smoooooooth and very precise, trapped Sen Harris a number of times. She was well prepared but could not be spontaneous, her answers were often nonsensical and off topic. Check the issues she dodged and you can see the truth of where the Democratic ticket wants to go.

-9 ( +7 / -16 )

Yes, whenever VP Pence is destroying Harris, it's time to move on! LOL

That's not what happened. Pence just ran well over his time, ignoring the question he was asked. I don't think he gave more than one straight answer in the whole debate.

8 ( +14 / -6 )

Kamala Harris speaks from the heart, Pence speaks according to a script.

Kamala's job was only too ruin the Trump/Pence agenda.

She failed miserably at this. Pence was the clear winner.

-4 ( +11 / -15 )

Pence was soooo boring a fly fell asleep on his head for half the debate.

3 ( +11 / -8 )

Who does Trump owe over $400,000,000.00 to? It should be answered because whoever is collecting has influence over the president.

Hopefully, somebody will ask Trump that question at next week's debate.

6 ( +14 / -8 )

Pence also never answered any questions.

5 ( +13 / -8 )

All GOP has on Biden are the "assumptions" of what he will do. Come on. He was VP for 8 years. Can't they find anything against him? I guess they can't.

2 ( +10 / -8 )

Score, so far: Biden-Harris 2, Trump-Pence 0

Remember how the VP had to remind the senator several times that “you’re entitled to your opinions but you’re not entitled to your facts” ?

-4 ( +8 / -12 )

Not one question to Harris about Biden’s racist past and her own attacks on him for his opposition to the busing and integration policies that gave her the opportunity to be in the position she is in today. The Left got its usual support from the debate moderator but Pence got in his side of the debate anyway- so good for him. Harris was condescending and made a lot of faces. Pence had facts in spades - the opposite of Trumps level of preparation for what should be a substantive discussion. Too bad Trump didn’t defer running for re-election and allowing someone like Pence or Ambassador Halley run in his place. Oh well - four years of BLM marxist politics and racism until 2024.

The results of the debate:

Winner: Kamala Harris

Runner-up: The Fly on Pence's head

Loser: Mike Pence.

The Left got its usual support from the debate moderator but 

Conservatives sure love playing the victim card and spinning conspiracies.

The Left got its usual support from the debate moderator but

If that were true, she would have stopped Pence from going well over his time, and berated him for not answering half her questions. If I'm having a job interview and I don't like the questions being asked, can I answer another question of my liking?

Pence sounds like an android trying to trick the last human out of the bunker. What a boring man he is.

12 ( +16 / -4 )

Senator Harris knows nothing about foreign policy. I don't trust her.

-10 ( +9 / -19 )

The moderator allowed herself to get bullied by Pence who continually went over time and she had to keep saying "thank you," but he ignored her anyway.Had a very condescending manner and speaking tone and a look that you can't trust.

no she hasnt been to the white house recently, 18 infected so far, meanwhile Trump does a photo op in front of the white house wheezing as he stands still injected with at least 2 different steroids and drugs

Pence won that debate outright.

Harris dodged questions all over the place and came across as fake and insincere.

She may be even less likeable than Hillary!

what conspiracy that? that covid is like the flu!? the flu is more deadly!?

that the US has the pandemic under control, while 18 have been infected in the white house including the president.

I remember Billy Crystal described Pence as looking like a man who chased the Von Trapp family through the Alps.

16 ( +16 / -0 )

I see Harris was playing her emotional card to the people rather than stating facts.

IF the American people thinks they are getting Mainstream Moderates out of the Harris/Biden team, they haven't read the Democrat Party Platform Manifesto.

Too bad VP Pence didn't mention that even Putin thinks the values of the Democrats were similar to those of the Soviet Communist Party and that there was an idelogical link between the two.

It was a missed opportunity.

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

Come on. He was VP for 8 years. Can't they find anything against him? I guess they can't.

Didnt you watch the debate?

I’d have put my life savings on you saying that.

Ironic, both vice presidential candidate Sen Kamala Harris, D-Calif, Vice President Mike Pence behaved responsibly.

That couldn’t remotely refer to either or Biden President Donald Trump. Yet that’s the choice.

That fly just went viral! Both literally and metaphorically, considering that Pence should be in quarantine.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Harris deflected a bit but at least she didn’t totally ignore the questions. As always Trump supporters will say Biden won and Trump can do no wrong but he didn’t come out looking too good! Biden tried his best to defend the administration’s response but he didn’t have anything to work with there. Like Harris said:

"The American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country,"

9 ( +10 / -1 )

Lawyers Harris and Pence,

Final takeaway: Mike Pence was a gentleman, forthright and focused. He delivered his plan for America brilliantly. Kamala Harris behaved like a “Valley Girl,” smirking and rolling her eyes like a petulant brat, dodging every question she was asked.

-10 ( +8 / -18 )

Pence called out Harris and Biden on a few counts, made her squirm a little , you can see the lack of integrity right there.

Joe Biden won't be president you can bank on that.

During the debate, there was a huge fly sitting on Pence's silver head. Flies are attracted to crap.

That was the perfect metaphor for the current WH administration.

Harris wouldnt answer about shutting down the economy or mask mandate.

Wouldnt answer about court packing. Lied about fracking and repeated numerous debunked attacks.

The current GDP under trump and Pence is -31.9%.

LOL! Mic drop!

Ms. Harris said she believed Biden’s accuser of his sexual abuse. So did she suddenly change her mind or did she decide that sexual abuse isn’t a problem for her.

One of the most crucial and important questions that Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen Kamala Harris, D-Calif dodged was impact of taxation policy , and the implications of the so called green new deal.

Pence never had much support in his home state, from Republicans, before becoming Vice President. Nothing much has changed. He has nothing to offer except the views that he has been given to express. He isn’t stupid, but he comes across as hypocritical and deceptive.

Kamala Harris is smart and a great person. She will be VP to President Joe Biden.

Today's debate did nothing to change her status as future VP. It most likely improved the poll numbers further for Biden. Although, admittedly, Trump is driving his own numbers down all by himself, anyways.

It's happening, no matter how much the cries from Trump supporters and Republicans cringe in fear of a strong, black woman of high integrity becoming VP.

Harris excelled. Very confident. Very intelligent. She is articulate and America wins with her.

Why would Pence go on television to tell the American people that we should act according to Putin's whims?

That's President Trump's job.

I find it quite entertaining that the pro Trump side wants to argue about things like tax policy and ‘Tegridy.

Spent 20 years as a Republican and an Independent since 2006. I’m single issue this election. Biden ain’t an autocrat. Trump is. Republicans are enabling him. There is nothing more to discuss.

in 2020, according to Ohara, being against a hyper nationalist autocrat who literally checks the boxes on the “how to be a fascist” list makes me a leftist who wants to “end the US.”

I get it. It’s not enough to secure life sentences. You, being a good christian, want blood instead. Never mind that the death penalty doesn’t it serve as a deterrent (look at the continued crime in China and Saudi Arabia despite extensive use of the death penalty) and that it costs more than a life sentence.

You're kidding right?

That she will be vice president may make those who have supported Trump's misogyny and racism incredulous to the coming election result, but as they say, 'the truth hurts, don't it?'

Biden/Harris...the fly on the wah....tever says so!! The next POTUS/VP to rid the stench of the worst POTUS/VP America has ever had the past 3 years plus.

1 ( +5 / -4 )

She prosecuted them all.

Well.....

On April 13, 2004, three days after Isaac Espinoza was shot to death, a suspect was in custody and Delagnes agreed to join Harris at a news conference.

"In San Francisco, it is the will, I believe, of a majority of people that the most severe crimes be met with the most severe consequences," Harris told reporters and camera crews. "And that life without the possibility of parole is a severe consequence."

"I'm standing there and I'm going, 'Oh my God,'" recalled Delagnes, who stood stoically next to the DA, then 39, as she spoke. "The kid's not even in the ground yet. You're thinking to yourself, OK, is she sorry that this kid died or is this just a political opportunity? Is this just an opportunity for her to double down on the fact she's not going to pursue the death penalty?"

So no, not really and that's just one case, but the most famous and I remember it vividly.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/08/politics/kamala-harris-death-penalty-decisions/index.html

Unless it’s Trump’s people like Stone and Flynn.

If you want to get into this sort of thing, we could go on for hours about the things Pence has said that contradict dear leader. And btw, she said she believed them about inappropriate touching, not sexual abuse. These are not exactly the same thing and definitely not in the same league as pu$$y grabbin'

God is telling us something when he sends a sweet birdie to Sanders, and a fly to Pence's head. Flies are attracted to only one thing!

So, Harris prosecuting criminals and securing life sentences isn’t really prosecuting criminals and securing life sentences?

If she didn't do it for the worst offenders and cop killer and disproportionately goes after blacks for less offensives, prosecutes them, but won't for a cop killer? No wonder the black community dislikes this woman.

Confessing guilt and being found guilty

And selectively prosecuting people that will further your career is not handing out justice, but more of a tool to help advance your career and it helped, ask Willie Brown.

-7 ( +3 / -10 )

I am not a fan of playing Hypocrisy Wars these days. It's a waste of time, both sides do it, it is part of the way politics is played.

I would rather focus on the issues and competency. To me, Sen. Harris did not look in control of many of the issues. She had set talking points, but no real policy. This was particularly true when talking about the Supreme Court and also foreign policy issues/economics. Trump/Pence have a lot to answer for due to Covid, but I didn't hear any credible or concrete alternatives offered by either Biden or Harris. It is far too easy to play Monday morning quarterback without offering anything real in return.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Prosecutors don't sentence criminals, nor do juries - it's up to judges, who have to follow state sentencing guidelines. Many prosecutors go for the max as a matter of course to appear tough on crime knowing that the trial judge will dial mitigate it. Harris was a pretty harsh AG, and many in CA didn't particularly like her stance on drug or corporate offenses, but appreciated her positions on violent crime and gangs.

The little I saw seemed a bit dull, compared to the tantrums last week. And Pence wasn't really answering the questions put to him.

Yes, he did, but it's hard to give a full answer when the moderator  tells you your time is up and tries to continuously cut you off.

from the VP, was the clear winner.

How? Skating doesn't equate to winning.

Aside from being an incredibly offensive and misogynistic point of view, does that have anything to do with the debate?

What? ROFL!

Why would you support Joe when you already know he’s being put there so his VP can take over shortly after? The woman who was the first out of twenty twoooooooo people running for president to drop out.

She was also polling at less than 3% when she dropped out. And that is among Democrats!

If she didn't do it for the worst offenders and cop killer and disproportionately goes after blacks for less offensives, prosecutes them, but won't for a cop killer? No wonder the black community dislikes this woman.

She went after the worst offenders, she just didn’t seek the death penalty.

And selectively prosecuting people that will further your career is not handing out justice, but more of a tool to help advance your career and it helped, ask Willie Brown.

Selective prosecution means not prosecuting everyone; Harris prosecuted everyone.

You’re clearly conflating not seeking the death penalty with not seeking justice.

She went after the worst offenders, she just didn’t seek the death penalty.

Not after a cop killer and illegal, so no she didn't and people are still to this day outraged about it.

Exactly!

You’re clearly conflating not seeking the death penalty with not seeking justice.

No, I'm not, she didn't do both in this case.

-12 ( +2 / -14 )

Sen. Harris was universally rejected by the Democratic party during their primaries. I think we can see why. Her knowledge is a mile wide but only an inch deep. I would dread her taking over in the event that a future President Biden was incapacitated. She exhibits all the impatience of Donald Trump combined with the self righteousness of a dedicated statist. Even when VP Biden warned her during debates that she simply couldn't flout or change the Constitution at will, she still vowed to try.

Pence? A steady hand at the wheel. Obviously has learned a lot in the past 4 years.
