With a sacarastic and whiney performance not worthy of a second-rate Saturday Night Live skit, Kamala Harris proved she was a suitable pick for Joe Biden.
The question, “who is more vice-presidential?” was obvious.
Former Indiana Governor and now Vice President Mike Pence remained diplomatic and steadfast in Wednesday night’s debate.
The sneering California senator discharged hostility and spewed mockery throughout the event. She projected little leadership.
In typical Harris fashion, more than once, her condescending eliteness was exhibited.
She actually told viewers in case they didn’t understand what she was talking about, “then let me explain it to you” (like the average American is too dumb to know what a “bounty” is).
She addressed Americans with “…just so everyone is clear, when we say ‘in debt,’ it means you owe money to somebody.”
Another question wasn’t so obviously revealed. Why would Biden select Harris as his running in the first place?
She’s bad news. Even though she may be George Soros’ pick, she had to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary race finishing 16th place in December 2019.
Even Julian Castro, Marianne Williamson, Corey Booker, John Delaney, Micheal Bennett, Andrew Yang, Deval Patrick, Tom Steyer, Any Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Tulsi Gabbard beat her.
Kelly Mehlenbacher, Harris’ state operations director, resigned because her staffers were being treated terribly. There was minimal direction on policy and Harris lacked a viable plan to win the election.
“This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” Mehlenbacher wrote.
The coffin was nailed during those debates when Representative Tulsi Gabbard revealed that as a district attorney and attorney general, Harris “put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”
Gabbard finished her off, declaring Harris owed an apology to “people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor.”
Vice President Pence successfully backed Harris into the ropes with challenges about the Green New Deal she and AOC originally sponsored.
She stayed tangled up by not answering Pence’s demanding question that on the minds of millions. Does she and Biden intend to enlarge the Supreme Court if they don’t get their way. And–will they “pack the courts” with liberal justices.
“America, you just heard Sen. Harris tell you, one Day One Joe Biden is going to raise your taxes,” Pence said, warning that Democrats promised to repeal the Trump tax cuts.
One of Pence’s best lines referred to the 1988 plagiarism scandal that wrecked one of Biden’s earlier presidential campaign attempts:
“When you read the Biden plan it looks an awful lot what President Trump, the task force, and I have been doing. It looks a little bit like plagiarism, something Joe Biden knows a little bit about.”
