Very Pleased With Tim Kaine For Democratic Vice-President!!

July 22, 2016

It was the ticket I hoped to have the chance to vote for in November.  Late today Hillary Clinton selected Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate.  I am very pleased!

The other top choices fro V.P. were solid individuals with strong records.  But Kaine was just so much more talented in all the areas that one desires for a vice-presidential pick.

The nation needs someone who is able to take over–God forbid–if it were necessary.  Kaine has a wide-ranging background as mayor, governor, and now senator which allows him to serve many ways as a V.P.

I like that he is a moderate which allows for independents to know they have a solid Democratic ticket to vote for in November.  Kaine is very bright, low key, and will jell with those who want proven leadership and a resume of success to serve in the White House.

He was born in the Midwest, is fluent in Spanish, and has proven to be able to win a key Southern swing state.  In fact, many electoral vote maps have Democrats winning Virginia and in so doing be able to lose Ohio and Florida, carry the other swing states from 2012, and still win the White House.  Kaine is central to a winning political strategy.

I like the fact he is pro-trade and brings a reasonable and wide world-view with him on foreign policy.

From policy credentials to political strength Tim Kaine is a remarkable pick!

Two thumbs up!

    Not to mention that Kaine just recently voted for the “Keep America in the Dark Act.” But I will🙂 It overturned Vermont’s labeling requirement for Genetically Modified foods (GMOs) and created federal rules that have a boatload of loopholes and no penalties for not complying. Because, you know, we can’t have people knowing what’s in their food, or how it’s made. So, last I heard, it’s on Barry O’s desk waiting to be signed, you know the same Barry O that campaigned in 07/08 for tough disclosures on GMOs. Michelle, you care about what Americans eat, we need you. Intervene! Meanwhile, with Hillary and Timmy carrying water for the banks, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, cheap crap to be imported for Walmart and Monsanto, perhaps the Dumbocrats want to change their party name to the Corporate Whore Party. Trump may be able to make some hay on those issues.

    Good for you! When you and the fellow backers of the Status Quo Party go out to knock on doors, be sure to tell them Kaine is in favor of TPP, “if you liked NAFTA, and thousands of closed factories and telling laid-off 57 year olds with 30 years on the job to suck it up and polish up your resume and get a new trade, and if you like the fact that Kaine just recently pushed to roll back bank regulation, have we got a ticket for you!” Please let me know when you do that, and I’ll stand by with a first aid kit.
