Allow me to share an other post on Donald J. Trump’s Presidential campaign. Remember to keep yourself updated!:
This is what Democrats call being consistent…or maybe it’s just “evolving.”
Hillary Clinton’s running mate for 2016 had a few choice words to say about her mate-for-life a decade ago, and they were a far cry from the praise he heaps on Bill Clinton today.
Back in the day, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine was comparing the peccadillo-plagued president to a political opponent in the Old Dominion facing his own sex-related scandal. And the lawmaker who’s now No. 2 on the Democrat ticket went far beyond offering a comparison — he even sounded like a Republican when talking about Slick Willy and his Oval Office escapades.
In a 2002 interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Kaine — who was the Commonwealth’s lieutenant governor at the time — attacked Virginia’s then-Speaker of the House of Delegates Vance Wilkins, a Republican, naturally.
According to the Daily Beast, which first reported on the old interview, Kaine didn’t mince words in the Times-Dispatch piece.
Here’s how the article read, in part:
“If the allegations are true, he should definitely resign,” Kaine said, adding he held the same view about President Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.
“That is an intolerable way to treat women and it’s not something that the state should be dragged through.”
The Times-Dispatch archives, by the way, are behind a paywall.
In a separate interview, according to the Daily Beast, Kaine told The Associated Press:
“My reaction was the same I had when I read about the Clinton-Lewinsky affair: this is not appropriate conduct. It’s beneath the dignity of the office.”
It’s important to note that the quote didn’t come from the height of the Clinton Monica-gate days, but five long years after Clinton’s impeachment – at a time when no one seriously expected to be facing the prospect of another Clinton White House.
Kaine, being exactly the kind of political opportunist Democrats tend to produce, saw no harm in taking a smear to a former Democrat president if it meant he could smear a contemporary Republican enemy.
And he could look like a sterling example of consistency to boot.
Well, that was then, as they say, and this is now.
Asked about the comments this week, Kaine acknowledged that he’d said his new running mate’s partner should have resigned from the White House in his second term – which would likely have made any Hillary run an impossibility.
But he shrugged off the matter as unimportant.
“Twenty years ago I was disappointed like a lot of folks were but I tell ya, there is no reason to re-litigate problems of 20 years ago when Americans want to talk about is what do we do today and tomorrow,” he told Cedar Rapids, Iowa, station KWWL.
“So past controversies aren’t really important to the voters they want to know what we are going to do tomorrow.”
OK, if “past controversies aren’t really important,” why do Democrats and their media allies keep bringing up Donald Trump’s past bankruptcies, or the supposedly outstanding debts from construction projects long ago?
Actually, since past performance is the best indicator of future performance, Kaine’s comments tell Americans pretty well what he’s going to be doing tomorrow: He’s going to be on the attack against any Republican opponent who comes his way, he’s going to be sucking up to the Clintons while he’s doing it, and he’s going to claim the whole time that he’s being consistent for the American people.
(He just might relieve himself on your leg, too, then tell you that it’s raining.)
That’s being consistent — Democrat style.
Commenters on social media, the conservative side of it anyway, were disgusted — if not surprised — by the revelation of Kaine as a moral-flip-flopper.
