A Better Way
I want to add a little to the story NLS broke here. I am glad he is getting the credit he deserves. I want to look at what was actually said at the meeting. But first, remember this
"Democrats are leading that reform effort, working to restore honesty and openness to our government, working to replace a culture of partisanship and cronyism with an ethic of service and results." (Tim Kaine)
That was Tim Kaine after the state of the union address. Now we have Kaine's Chief of Staff, William H. Leighty saying at a town hall meeting
"I have four staff members looking at every bill from every Republican House member," Leighty said, according to the blog. "We are not going to the member, but compiling a list of who asked for each bill. We are going to those people to tell them their bills are in jeopardy."
Thats right Gov Kaine, threaten to deny legislation and programs people want. Good move! A Better Way! They can spin it all they want, But Leighty showed how the Kaine crew will address any criticism of their plans. Another example of the Kaine crew talking out both sides of their mouths. A nationwide call to end partisanship, then the true colors show when the stage is not quite as big. Good job NLS for catching the irony of our leader and his staff. A better way indeed.
