    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife who’s active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...

    Kaine answered that he’s the best evidence that Hillary doesn’t share those prejudices: “Hillary Clinton’s feeling about faith and about Catholicism in particular is most demonstrated by the fact that she asked me to be a running mate,” Kaine said. “That is the most direct evidence about what Hillary thinks about Catholics.”

    WikiLeaks has twice warned Tim Kaine that he might be in for a "surprise" – but the vice presidential candidate says he's not worried. Despite multiple warnings from the organization that has been steadily publishing stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton's running mate says he isn't threatened by the possibility of his correspondences going public, since he is a "regular human being" with nothing to be "overly embarrassed about." Nasty emails are "not my norm," the Democratic vice presidential nominee told the Associated Press on Saturday, adding, "I do have a temper so, I mean,...

    Were you surprised when Hillary Clinton chose Tim Kaine as her Vice Presidential running mate? Did you ever think maybe it could be Elizabeth Warren or Corey Booker? According to Wikileaks documents from John Podesta Emails, Hillary Clinton had already told Tim Kaine he'd be here VP a year before it was announced. Any ideas Elizabeth Warren would be a progressive choice is laughable. Any idea up and coming, great advocate for prison reform Corey Booker had a shot are foolish. Hillary Clinton knew who she wanted and it had nothing to do with progressive voters, black voters or latino...

    NewsBusters ^ | October 9, 2016 | P.J. Gladnick
    Jake Tapper's infamous furrowed brow of skepticism got quite a workout this morning on CNN's State Of The Union. The cause was the shuffling, dodging, and general evasiveness by Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine when questioned about the Wikileaks revelation that Hillary Clinton had called for open borders. Perhaps Kaine thought he would only be faced with questions that he would be eager to answer about the recent release of a decade old off-color Donald Trump tape. For the first part of the interview, Kaine was happily chirping away on this topic. However, Tapper eventually switched gears to ask about the Wikileaks revelation and...

However, inasmuch as my personal opposition to this practice is rooted in a sectarian (Catholic) religious belief in the sanctity of human life, I am unwilling to impose it on others who may, as a matter of conscience, take a different view. Of course, I am entirely in favor of policies aimed at removing the root causes of violence against abortionists. Indeed, I would go so far as to support mandatory...

    Because of his stellar debate performance, some think Mike Pence was positioning himself for a presidential run in 2020. But if likability still matters, it's likelier that Tim Kaine was taking himself out of the 2020 running. From the very beginning, it was as though Kaine was auditioning for the role of a despicable shyster in some cheesy TV legal drama. And with her frequent interruptions of Pence at key moments, it's also as if debate moderator Elaine Quijano was trying to help him get the part. Kaine focused mainly on three things: smarmily interrupting and taunting Pence, mouthing tired...

    Liberal Catholic candidates for public office such as Democratic nominee for vice president Tim Kaine often proclaim their Catholic identity to curry favor with this constituency, but when it comes to practicing the doctrines of their faith often are what are called “cafeteria Catholics”. They pick and chooses from what they might call the “Ten Suggestions”, particularly when it comes to a woman’s “right to choose”. Unfortunately for Tim Kaine and fellow cafeteria devotees, there is no right to choose on what are called “doctrines of the church”, even if he seems to think so. On the issue of same-sex...

    This year we mourned the death of Elie Wiesel, eyewitness, survivor, and chronicler of the Holocaust. His first book, Night, was published thanks to the lobbying of Catholic novelist Francois Mauriac, the greatest French writer of the last century. (Do read this wrenching account of the meeting between the battered young Jewish refugee and the grand old man of letters.) Mauriac lived through the hateful politics of the 1920s and 30s, and the Nazi occupation—throughout which he aided the Resistance. And Mauriac bore witness to the various shades of evil that had allowed so many of his countrymen, patriotic Frenchmen...

    The good news is Tim Kaine finally answered an age-old, world-class mystery - “How does anyone make Hillary likeable?” The answer? “Just watch Tim Kaine for a few minutes.”After watching the Vice Presidential debate on Tuesday night, Kaine puts a new spin on “Make America GRATE again.” The man’s personality clearly grates on the nerves of every living human being. Kaine defines “grateness.”I’ve watched political debates my entire life. I’ve been in quite a few myself- including a presidential debate in 2008…and a vice presidential debate after I won the Libertarian vice presidential nomination. I’ve never seen a more unlikeable,...

    Putting convicted criminals to death is an issue Sen. Tim Kaine said he had to “grapple” with when he served as governor of Virginia. Kaine chose the death penalty, not abortion, as the issue that posed the biggest conflict with his Roman Catholic faith. “For me, the hardest struggle in my faith life was, the Catholic Church is against the death penalty and so am I,” Kaine said at Tuesday night’s debate. “But I was governor of a state, and the state law said that there was a death penalty for crimes if the jury determined them to be heinous....

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) lost badly to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate — despite having home field advantage in Farmville, Virginia — raising new doubts about Hillary Clinton. Those doubts are twofold: first, about her decision to choose so weak a candidate, who seemed unable to answer basic policy questions; and second, about Clinton’s health, since if her medical troubles are as bad as feared, Kaine may be taking over at some point if she is elected. Kaine could not stop interrupting Pence, at times sounding high-pitched and shrill, at times whining and defensive. Pence...

    A minor bummer for Pence given his strong performance, but the ratings downturn from 2012 was probably inevitable. This was the first veep debate since 2000 to feature two politicians with low public profiles. In 2004 Cheney was the sitting VP; four years ago Biden was. In between, in 2008, you had massive public curiosity about Sarah Palin, producing the biggest audience for a vice presidential debate in history at 70 million people. Last night’s contest between Kaine and Pence drew barely half that. That’s what happens when you have two little-known vanilla candidates competing with the galaxy of cable...

    Well, if there was one thing that was obvious, besides Gov. Mike Pence winning the vice presidential debate, it was that Sen. Tim Kaine had an appalling inability to shut the hell up. Pence won handily over Kaine, who often waffled as he tried to attack Trump—and place pressure on Pence to defend his running mate’s past remarks. Pence didn’t take the bait. Yet, it seemed as if every time Pence offered a contrary opinion, or his take on policy, Kaine interrupted him. It was pervasive. Then again, when you're defending Clinton, one might have to interrupt often in the...

The facts surrounding this “mission trip,” however, raise grave and serious concerns, particularly given his continued relationships with the successors of a number of political and religious extremists. Catholic voters and leaders are entitled to the truth about this decisive period in Kaine’s life.

    “Did you work on that a long time?” That Reaganesque rejoinder from Mike Pence — one of many — effectively put Tim Kaine in his place during a debate that exposed the depths of the Hillary campaign’s demagogic cheapness. Pence looked like a statesman; Kaine, rudely interrupting him for much of the debate, looked like a clumsy hatchet man and shameless party hack. Kaine’s labored lines and sweaty lunges contrasted embarrassingly with Pence’s smooth and substantive debate performance. Pence deftly ignored much of Kaine’s immature invective and directed the audience’s attention to Hillary’s failed record and the clear themes of...

Pence came across as measured, well-versed in the facts, and - dare I say the p-word - presidential. Kaine, on the other hand, came unglued. Hillary’s VP spent the night in a wild-eyed fit of interrupting, stammering, and painfully canned jokes that landed with a thud. He quickly became tiresome so, if you managed to make it all the way to the end, congratulations. You have one more accomplishment than Hillary Clinton.

Kaine is a Democrat Senator from Virginia who supports a ban on 15-round “clips” and “assault weapons,” and who wants to enact a law to hold gun dealers liable for the misuse of firearms. During the June 26 airing of Meet the Press, Kaine told Chuck Todd that he voted for an “assault weapons” ban before and "would likely vote for it again." But he stressed that he believes “limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips” is the first step to take. Todd asked Kaine if he believes the...
