Little Timmy Kaine? "What difference does it make?" Lots to me! Forget It Hillary Will Lose

OMG I see this headline is the common opinion held by the political elites.  "Hillary Clinton is getting ready to pick Tim Kaine as her VP. We think."

If Ms. Clinton takes this little twerp, Tim Kaine as her VP I will not vote for her and I"ll wager that many folks like myself will feel the same way.

I just wish that for once in her life since her very first health care defeat when Bill was first elected, she would take the "righteous path," the path for politicians that "do the right thing."  Hillary's advocacy for health care for Americans was a righteous cause.  She lost that battle and became a compromiser from that point on.  Instead of doing the calculated and carefully cautious one in those days her instinct was to do the righteous deal.  Not this time it appears.  It appears to me that the lesson she learned early in her political career was not to take chances.  Clinton apparently thinks that Tim Kaine is the one that will provide her with a win and less problems after the win.  I don't think so.

I think the voters like me will see little Timmy Kaine as a sellout and a signal that all her intentions at this point are governed by her allegiance to special interests and the status quo.  She apparently doesn't have a clue that without Elizabeth Warren to give her candidacy some credibility, she will lose.  Just sayin' and it is just my opinion but like I said here before I certainly won't vote for her if she doesn't choose Ms. Warren.  Sad if these reports are true.

Bye bye Hillary.  You silly fool. Hillary Clinton Selects Tim Kaine, a Popular Senator From a Swing State, as Running Mate

Hawaii News Roundup

1.)  NextEra’s $2.6 Billion Hawaii Deal in Doubt as Regulator Says No
"The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission voted 2-0 against the proposed transaction, saying it failed to show that it was in the public’s interest, according to a statement late Friday. The regulatory panel raised concerns about the benefits to ratepayers, the loss of local control of the utility and the companies’ commitments to deploying rooftop solar systems."

Pence Blowback!

From Clintons minions:Trump’s new running mate, Mike Pence, has an atrocious record of anti-woman, homophobic, extreme conservative governance.
He also has some absolutely absurd ideas that make him a natural partner for the Trump ticket. To wit:
  • Mike Pence doesn’t believe smoking causes deaths. He wrote on his website, “smoking doesn't kill. In fact, two out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness.” … last time I checked, that means one out of every three smokers DOES die from a smoking-related illness, right?
  • Mike Pence thinks climate change is a hoax. Again, in his own words: "Global warming is a myth. The global warming treaty is a disaster. There, I said it."
  • Mike Pence shut down the only HIV testing center in Scott County, Indiana -- in the name of preventing HIV/AIDS.In a huge surprise, that county later experienced what the press called “an exploding HIV outbreak.”
Mike Pence might not think smoking, climate change, or HIV pose serious threats -- but one thing is absolutely clear:

Mike Pence himself is a pretty serious threat to the American people.

Things that make you go hhhuuuummmm????

Holy Moly Am I the only person that thinks the Clinton media team sucks at presenting her, especially on TeeVee? Well here goes with another Clinton rant!

Recently the Clinton ads on the news channels have featured a particularly noxious ad with an intro that starts with a voice over telling the viewer that with Clinton it has "always been about kids!" The images of the candidate in this piece, running alongside the voice over are especially unflattering.  My first thought was "boy has she aged" and is old and tired, because images of Hillary as a young woman are shown right before and after contrasting images of her as an older woman, a heavier, tired, professional baby hoister and baby kisser is the overall impression one is left with of Hillary.  Then, if that is not disturbing enough, whilst the narrative directs the viewer to recall that she was a wife of a president and worked to provide health coverage for "kids" she strides confidently from one room to another in an attempt by the producers to give the impression of strength and purpose.  Instead, to me, here, her whole shctick  reminds me of my middle school teacher, Mrs. Burris, who was especially pushy and aggressive.  I am repelled by this ad.  To my mind it creates exactly the wrong impression of the woman and her candidacy.

Then, there is the impression I keep encountering from the media talking heads and self declared Clinton intimates that Tim Kaine is going to be the VP pick.  I have said before here that I think that it is huge mistake.
I'll vote for Hillary this time unless she decides that Tim Kaine will be her running mate. I want Elizabeth Warren to be her Vice President. She will likely win with Elizabeth Warren by attracting the Bernie folks and women.  Tim Kaine is just more of the same old shit that folks are tired of and frustrated by.  Hillary won't win with Tim Kaine.  Elizabeth is a better choice strategically and righteously.  Tim Kaine is not a "righteous" choice.  Please take the righteous road Hillary!
Well, I am going to hide and watch.  Let's see which way Hillary will jump!  I hope for once she will take the righteous path.
