Video: Tim Kaine Says Matters of Reproduction are “moral decisions for individuals,” not government, to make


Kaine: “I know how to work on a team.” “The reason I’m helping Hillary [Clinton]…by reason of character…background…experience…results, she would be the most qualified person to be president in January 2017.” “I have done my homework about what I think this country needs right now…I am absolutely confident that [Hillary Clinton] is the right person to tackle the huge challenges ahead of us.” “I’m kind of a traditional Catholic; personally I’m opposed to abortion and personally I’m opposed to the death penalty,” but “I deeply believe…that matters about reproduction and intimacy and relationships and contraception are in the personal realm, they’re moral decisions for individuals to make for themselves, and the last thing we need is government intruding into those personal decisions…let women make their own decisions.” “I am boring, but you know boring is the fastest-growing demographic in this country.” LOL

    Dirty little secret: Tim Kaine ain’t boring.

    If you’re in a crowded room and chatting with Tim Kaine, you’re the only person in the room.

    If you’re listening to Tim Kaine give a speech, he’s talking right to you.

    If you watch Tim Kaine on television, he comes right through the screen and grabs you.

    And, the second little secret: It’s genuine.

    • I tend to agree that this “boring” thing is kind of absurd, also mindless…no wonder why Chuck(les) Todd harped on it.

  • John Farrell

    Someone remind me.

    Isn’t Kaine the guy who signed the repeal of Va.’s estate tax?

    Isn’t he also the guy who diciplined no one after the mishandling of the VTech massacre by a VTech administration more worried about the pr impact of an “active shooter” warning than getting their students and faculty to safety.

    Isn’t he also the guy who took no action against the state mental health clinic personnel who did not give Cho the court-order evaluation treatment and then ‘lost” the file?

    Some one please explain exactly what he accomplished as Governor that has Virginians so excited to have him on the national ticket? Other than he’s from Virginia.
