The final United States Senate debate for Virginia showed strength for George Allen and more of the same squabbling by Democrat Tim Kaine. Virginia Tech was the host of the debate with moderators from WSLS TV from Roanoke.
Here's a quick analysis of the final debate...
George Allen won this debate. He focused his responses with what he stood for and provided sound solutions for the questions asked. George kept a cool head, responded tactfully to verbal barbs from Kaine, and kept a positive, upbeat tone throughout the debate. George communicated his positions on supporting small businesses to create jobs, promoting free trade principles, and control our nation's spending. Allen was very strong in his positions on exploring energy resources including coal to bolster Virginia's and America's economy. His experience with foreign affairs was very effective and on target with support for our allies.
Okay, here's the once over for Kaine's performance. Honestly, Tim Kaine is a mess. He knows his campaign is faltering and there is nothing left for realistic solutions to address the serious issues facing the Commonwealth and America. Kaine spent most of his time chirping in a sarcastic remark in some effort to bait George Allen in a miscue. George Allen remained strong and focused on the real issues. Kaine continued to cross the line of bloviation. Including his positions on sequestration which could cost Virginia about 200,000 defense jobs. He confirmed his position of increasing taxes amidst the current down economy. Kaine tip toed around the truth for his supposed support for energy, which he has stated his support for cap and trade and expensive green energy programs. All of which would put further restraints on Virginia energy sectors like coal.
So, that's the short once over for the final debate. Allen's ongoing hard work talking to grassroots Virginia will be a big plus heading in to Election Day. Kaine will throw accusations and try to scare Virginians since the Democrats are empty of solutions. All in all, it is now up to Virginians to respond with their vote in mass on November 6.
