A Switcharoo


Speaking before a crowd in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, Democrat vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine argued for the very thing his running mate, Hillary Clinton, has been resisting her entire campaign — he suggested that voters deserve to know about a candidate’s health and likely foreign involvements that could be risky.

“You want to know if we’ll disclose our finances, so you can understand how we’ve managed our own household or business and see if we owe anybody anything,” he said.

“We want to make sure that candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security, and we want to know that they’re in good-enough health to perform their duties,” Kaine added. “When candidates are on the up-and-up, they have no problem disclosing information on all these points. You have a right to know. You have a right to expect, and a candidate that’s on the up-and-up has no problem giving you the facts.” [Full]


This is brilliant strategy.  All America know that Hillary Clinton is going to lose as many as 50 states in November.  Well, maybe not New York.  So what's going on here is this.  Tim Kaine's "gaff" positions him as the moderate to replace Hillary at the top of the ticket after she a) drops dead; b) falls into a coma, or 3)  voluntarily withdraws for health reasons.   

When this happens Kaine, with the media doing cartwheels 24/7, will  leap and bound over Trump in the polls (and likely  win the election). The question is, will this happen before or after the scheduled debates? I'll guess after, because that gives Kaine the benefit of the doubt about his capabilities and allow the media to define them. Establishment saved!

Kaine win over Trump?
NOT A CHANCE in h e l l (dot com).

The momentum on Trump's side can only be overcome
by some fatal mistake at Trump's own hand.

And THAT ain't gonna happen.
His intuition is too good.

Kommie Kaine is a lying sleaze, always has been sneakily ambitious. I wouldn't put ulterior motives past him.

Somehow this was leading into an indictment of Trump.

If you want to know what a Democrat is doing, just listen to what he accuses Americans of doing.

It won't be Kaine, if they go the Somebody Besides Hillary! route, it's going to be M'Shell.

You'd be sexist and racist to vote against her.

Can do easy; I've been called worse than a racist or sexist by people that like me.
