View Full Version : Tim Kaine’s Detroit speech is surprisingly different from what Clinton’s been saying

We generally don’t get very much news out of another day on the trail for the presidential surrogates, including the veep nominees. The rare exception comes if the speaker suddenly veers off the script set at the top of the ticket, as occasionally happens with Mike Pence (to the great delight of the liberal media). We saw the reverse of that scenario in Detroit yesterday, when Tim Kaine addressed the Democratic faithful. To listen to the man or watch the speech (included below) you’d run across moments where you might wonder if he’d ever actually met Hillary Clinton

Further down

You have to zoom all the way to the final three minutes of the speech before Kaine finishes talking about poverty and gets to what he and Hillary actually plan to do about it. This includes, “making sure Wall Street never wrecks Main Street again… rejecting trade deals like TPP… raising the minimum wage.”

Excuse me.. did you just say you were going to make sure Wall Street never wrecks Main Street again? Have you read any of the released portions of transcripts of speeches your running mate gave to Wall Street? She certainly didn’t sound like she was interested in reining anyone in to me. Must be another of those public position versus private position things, huh? And the “dump TPP” talk goes over well in a union town, but this is the same deal that she previously referred to as “the Gold Standard.” Will we be upgrading to Platinum status now?
