I was as surprised as anyone when Hillary Clinton picked Tim Kaine to be her Vice President, given his do nothing record as a Senator and previous record as Governor of Virginia. When I was Governor, we Republicans cut taxes. Tim Kaine tried to raise them and he also infamously closed our Commonwealth’s rest stops. His Senate record contains no signature legislative achievement. So why did Clinton pick Tim Kaine to be her Vice-President?
The answer is simple, to be her rubber stamp for her liberal agenda, and to one day continue it. In order to do that, he had to shift his views. Tim Kaine had to become Timmy the Shifter.
Timmy the Shifter shifted his views on offshore drilling, the 2nd Amendment, Right to Work, and abortion in order to to match Hillary Clinton’s.
He used to claim to be pro-2nd Amendment, now Timmy the Shifter wants gun owners to be classified as having a mental disorder.
He used to be in favor of the Hyde Amendment, now Timmy the Shifter is against it.
He used to be in favor of lifting the ban on offshore drilling to better serve Virginia’s energy needs. Now Timmy the Shifter, in order to match up with Hillary Clinton, wants to continue our dependence on foreign oil.
He used to be in favor of Virginia’s status as a Right to Work state, now Timmy the Shifter fights against it. (I would be remiss if I didn’t again urge you to please vote yes, on Constitutional Amendment Proposal 1, the Right to Work Amendment tomorrow.)
Tim Kaine’s abandoned Virginia values in his quest to be Hillary Clinton’s Vice-President, As a lifelong Virginian, former Commonwealth’s Attorney, Attorney General, and Governor, this lack of principle and naked pursuit of power offends me. It cannot stand.
When you go to the polls tomorrow (and bring your closest five friends) please send a message loud and clear that Virginians want conservatives in office, not shifty and unprincipled politicians like Hillary Clinton and Timmy the Shifter Kaine.
I won’t stand for this kind of typical Washington politician behavior from those that pursue power. I know you don’t. Together, let’s show the world tomorrow that Virginia won’t stand for it either by carrying the Commonwealth for the Trump/Pence ticket.
God Bless America and God Bless the Commonwealth of Virginia!
