Nominating Tim Kaine is POLITICAL MALPRACTICE. The Tim Kaine nomination is profoundly wrong. Wrong with a likely 50+% chance of being a profoundly horrible mistake for everyone in this county. A mistake that will hurt the 98% of Americans who are not already Millionaires and Billionaires especially hard.
The three powerful reasons why no Democratic party US Senator – especially a harder to replace southern Senator – should be proactively taken from their Senate seat in the next 2 years are:
1) US Democratic Party Senators ability to get anything done through Democratic Party Control of the US Senate –
Why would anyone trade a nearly certain 10+ more years for Tim Kaine to be a Virginia US Senator for a high probability of that the Democrats will only hold his seat for as little as 12 months or maybe only 48 months since voters in VA will be required to twice elect a Democrat Senator to retain what is already belongs to the party.
2) Supreme Court Justices –
If the Democrats lose control of the Senate in 2017-2018 the choice of Tim Kaine will be a strong reason why that will happen. HRC’s Presidency would likely be over and everyone can forget any appointment of reasonable Judges to the court or the passage of any significant maintenance, let alone progressive legislation.
Does anyone remember how many US Senate seats were lost by Democrats in the first 24 months of Obama’s Presidency?
Eight (8) – Democratic Party US Senate Seats were lost in the first 24 Months of Obama’s Presidency – yes that is not a typo – 8 seats changed parties – 6 in the Nov 2010 election and 2 in special elections such as the one for Kerry’s seat in Massachusetts
Anyone thinking that the buyer’s remorse for HRC will be smaller – calmer than it was for Obama is likely to be proven very wrong. The tea party idiots might even impeach her. Why would anyone except an extremely reckless or narcissistic person put any of our Senate seats in play that we don’t have to?
3) Hundreds of Federal Court Lifetime Appointments in every State in the Union –
See previous answers to #1 and #2.
another reason to oppose Tim Kaine for Vice President – although in my humble opinion it pales when compared to #1-3 above.
Besides the fact that Tim Kaine was the worst DNC chairperson in the last 50 years – his expansion of the DNC’s data collection, management and security problems to a private contractor Clinton family friend – a system that DWS still has no clue about how the party chair should be managing it. His track record was so bad you have to go back to when Windell Wilkie was running for President to see a worse party chair. Incompetent would be a kind term for Tim Kaine.
PLEASE help the DNC by stopping this reckless nomination.
