Hillary's VP Pick No Stranger to Controversy

By Wednesday, 27 July 2016 10:46 AM Current | Bio | Archive

In 2016 it appears Black Lives Matter folks will be exercising their right to vote for the White Careers Count ticket, after Hillary Clinton’s VP pick.

So who is this Tim Kaine?

When he was governor of Virginia, Kaine’s claim to fame was he was governor of Virginia. Boosters never tired of pointing out Kaine was the only Democrat to win a statewide election in years.

After his election to the Senate, Kaine could proudly point to the fact he was in the Senate.

Now that Kaine’s on the platform (brought to you by Goldman Sachs!) you’ll hear how he’s “fought for,” “championed,” “invested,” “challenged,” and “hugged” a variety of cronies, victims, addicts, and campaign contributors. But the truth is even The Washington Post was forced to admit Kaine had a “somewhat deflated political record.”

The “accomplishment” that had the most immediate impact on Virginia residents and those just passing through was when Kaine closed all the rest stops during a budget shortfall. Nothing says, “Welcome to Virginia” like being told there are no public facilities.

Becoming known as the scourge of car-trip families all along the Eastern Seaboard wasn’t the governor's only visible accomplishment. There was also the remarkable number of men who could be seen standing with their backs to the roadway, just inside the woods along the interstate.

Philosophically Kaine is a Catholic of convenience, meaning he’s Catholic when it’s convenient and won’t cost him any votes.

When Kaine ran for governor he claimed that although he was personally opposed to abortion, he’s not willing to impose his beliefs on a woman’s right to choose. Essentially confessing his Catholic faith wasn’t strong enough to get in the way of his political ambition.

Even that changed when he ran for the Senate. Then it was the weaselly explanation he didn’t want to stand in the way of a woman exercising her “constitutional choices,” unless the choice involved a handgun.

Both evasions are the progeny of a classic dodge Southern Democrats have been using since antebellum days. Before the Civil War Democrats sensitive to the opinion of their fellow (white) man claimed to be “personally opposed” to slavery, but unwilling to impose their beliefs on the planter aristocracy.

The result then was involuntary servitude; the result now is involuntary death.

Kaine did claim to have big plans for kids who escaped Planned Parenthood. He teamed up with teacher’s unions for a legacy–building pre–K mobilization extravaganza.

Unfortunately for him, his subsidized daycare program was dependent on a big tax increase to be spent on flash cards and diaper–changers with Master’s degrees.

Kaine’s failure to persuade a GOP–dominated legislature to hike taxes forced him to limit the program to students who qualified for reduced–price lunches.

But even that fell victim to his budget problems. All Kaine could finally persuade the General Assembly to fund was a pilot program that had his two teenagers playing “Baby Einstein” videos for neighborhood children.

Kaine doesn’t only share a lack of accomplishment with Hillary; he also shares her Nixonian contempt for the truth.

Barack Obama appointed Kaine DNC chair while he was still governor. Kaine claimed the job would be a spare time gig, the political equivalent of driving for Uber.

But more people saw Kaine on the road than in the office and started asking questions.

He initially refused to release travel records because he didn’t want the public rooting around in his yoga routines. Wait, wrong hypocrite. Kaine didn’t want the embarrassing travel records released for “security” reasons.

When his travel schedule was finally public it was obvious being governor was really the part–time gig. Kaine’s last chance to demonstrate leadership came when his commission on the Virginia Tech massacre delivered its report. The commission stated unequivocally an “alert should have been issued and classes should have been closed,” which makes the verdict of all investigative groups unanimous.

Closing the school could have saved over 30 lives, yet Tech President Charles Steger was content to close administrative offices and leave students to fend for themselves.

More than one parent who lost a child implored Kaine to fire Steger for incompetence and stonewalling. Kaine’s unbelievable response was school officials had suffered enough without losing their jobs — which was simply grotesque.

Tim Kaine: He’s not much, but thank God he’s not Joe Biden either.
