Senate Race 2012 - Tim Kaine - #3143 - Out of Touch: Kaine and Obama Fiddle While U.S. Economy Burns - NRSC

.........As he embraced his role as President Barack Obama’s #1 cheerleader in Washington, former DNC Chairman Tim Kaine touted the Democrats’ $787 billion stimulus as “one of the first flagstones on the road to recovery,” and promised it would “create or save more than 3 million jobs.” The Democrats even projected that their massive spending spree would hold unemployment below 8 percent. But over the nearly 2-and-a-half years since the Democrats rammed their stimulus into law, America’s economy has instead been mired in anemic growth and stagnant high unemployment. In the last 24 hours alone, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged by more than 500 points, while this morning’s disappointing jobs numbers from the U.S. Department of Labor reveal that Americans are now in our 30th consecutive month with higher-than-8-percent unemployment – while the country has actually lost 2.4 million jobs since President Obama came into office Economists once again fear a double-dip recession, as the New York Times reports that such a weak economy hasn’t been seen since the Jimmy Carter Administration.  Kaine and Obama continue to demand that struggling Americans foot the bill for their reckless spending agenda with job-killing tax hikes..........






Meanwhile, Kaine spent last night at what ABC reports was a “star-studded birthday party [for President Obama] at the White House,” where Politico reports that Kaine spent his time with the likes of Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, Jay-Z and Charles Barkley – no doubt a welcome reprieve from the work of trying to distract Virginia voters from his support of Obama’s deeply unpopular failed economic agenda. “Given the fact that his views are so far outside the Virginia mainstream, it’s no surprise that Tim Kaine loves to go back to Washington and hang out with his liberal friends at every opportunity,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Chris Bond. “But it’s a safe bet that while Kaine was clinking glasses last night with Jay-Z, Al Sharpton and Nancy Pelosi, normal Virginians were focused on the reality that the stock market just tanked, millions of Americans are out of work, and now Tim Kaine and President Obama want to raise their taxes.”  Read entire article.......
