Tonight I laboriously watched the entire debate between VP hopefuls, Tim Kaine (D) and Mike Pence (R). I was so glad when it was over.
A friend on Facebook tagged me in a post and asked me what I learned from the debate, so I responded with:
“Nothing much, other than one candidate admitted he had a personal relationship with Christ, while the other obeys his church, sorta. Oh, and that Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with anything while she was in charge, but when she stays in Washington she’ll not do what she’s already been not doing, or something like that.”
As expected, both men tried to land well-rehearsed blows against the other’s boss, the majority of which were launched in rapid-fire repeat mode from the Democrat. As usual, the Republican tried to keep it nice, which never, ever pays off in the end.
But my most memorable moment came near to the end when Tim Kaine tried to respond to the truth that the Democrat party, including Clinton and himself, support the continued practice of partial birth abortion. Shortly after he started to pontificate over women’s rights, not the rights of the unborn, he said…
“We have some young people in the audience who weren’t even born when Roe [versus Wade] was decided, and this is pretty important.” Vice Presidential candidate, Sen. Tim Kaine (D)
I couldn’t help but laugh… with a laugh only a righteous indignation could produce. Then I shouted out:
“And there are millions more who were NEVER born because Roe was decided!”
I figured that was important, too.
So, in honor of Sen. Tim Kaine’s eloquent attempt to educate the young people who were so fortunate to have survived their mother’s womb, I offer the following… Just listen.
