It’s time for Tim Kaine to go home

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

It is time to re­tire Sen. Tim Kaine. How much longer do the cit­i­zens of Vir­ginia have to tol­er­ate

a sen­a­tor who speaks without think­ing?

Just a cou­ple of reminders: Af­ter a ter­ror­ist at­tack in Colum­bus, Ohio, Kaine spoke about the gun vi­o­lence. In truth, the ter­ror­ist used a ve­hi­cle.

Kaine said he would vote against the Key­stone Pipe­line be­cause it will bring dirty oil into the U.S. But the worst oil in Canada is head and shoul­ders cleaner than what comes in from Venezuela. We’ve heard noth­ing from Kaine about end­ing oil im­ports from Venezuela.

And why have we heard noth­ing from Kaine about the “dirty” Cana­dian oil al­ready com­ing into the U.S. through the Al­berta Clip­per pipe­line? Per­haps be­cause it was built and com­pleted dur­ing the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion?

In ad­di­tion, Kaine voted against both Neil Gor­such’s and Brett Ka­vanaugh’s nom­i­na­tions to the Supreme Court. Why? Be­cause they were both nom­i­nated by a Repub­li­can. It’s time for a change.
