Oh No! “You Whipped Out That Mexican Thing!”

By far the funniest line in the Vice Presidential Debate last night came when Va Senator Tim Kaine was yet again lambasting Governor Pence for Trump’s vicious utterings…

Woah!

“You whipped out that Mexican thing!”

Makes you wonder if some itinerant Mexican dude is catching a cold running around with his pants unzipped…

Democrat Senator Lays Out Republican Racism

Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia too to the floor of the Senate a few days ago and exposed the reason Republicans are holding up the appointment of Merrick Garland by President Obama to the Supreme Court.

Kaine: Race an Issue in Opposition to Obama Supreme Court Nominee

Senator Tim Kaine (D., Va.) said Wednesday that race may be a factor as to why President Obama is facing opposition in the Senate regarding his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asked Kaine, a potential running mate for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, if the Senate is delaying the nomination process due to a fundamental disrespect for Obama.

“I think that’s a very serious concern. The rationale that the Republicans use, ‘We want to wait until the next president and let the people decide,’ is what we call in civil rights, and I used to try civil rights cases, a complete pretext. That’s not the way it’s been done in the past,” Kaine said.

“There’s a lot of concern that this president’s nominee has been given second-class treatment, not because of the nominee but because of the character of the president himself and that is very painful for people to contemplate about the nation’s first African-American president, that they wouldn’t pay him the respect of having a hearing and having a vote on a nominee in the way they’ve done with other presidents.”

Maddow re-raised the issue of race, asking whether or not it is linked to the resistance Obama is facing from Republicans and the conservative movement over picking Garland.

“Raising the issue of this being the first African-American president, that issue of legitimacy, do you think that is the through line that explains the way Republicans and the conservative movement have treated President Obama? Do you think fundamentally it is about race, that there’s a racial element to the resistance to him that people should be more explicit in discussing?” Maddow asked.

“There is an attack on his legitimacy that I think is just fundamentally different than what’s come before,” Kaine said.

Tim Kaine and Michael Steele Head to Head

Yesterday, on This Week with George Stephanopoulos DNC Chair Tim Kaine and RNC Chair Michael Steele went head to head –

At some point, Democrats need to realize they have wasted way too much time and effort allowing the Republicans to foot drag and draw out the Health Care Reform debate. This issue has sucked the wind out of every other legislative effort. It is way past time to use the proverbial 2 x 4 between Rethugly eyes – and get on towards solving the many many issues created by the previous 8 years of Republican destruction of our country.
