Remember that discredited VoteVets attack ad against George Allen back in 2006? Tim Kaine does, though he forgot that whole “discredited” part.
You see, Tim Kaine’s feeling the heat this week after saying last year’s super committee deal that has led to a looming $500 billion defense cut that would cost Virginia over 200,000 jobs was “the right thing to do.” Even with the media behind him he still can’t get from under the fact that this deal will be devastating for Virginia if we don’t do something about it.
So what does he do? He digs up old mistruths and gets the media to run with it. Whoops, looks like The Hill had to update their article because they didn’t check their sources before running with Kaine’s web ad.
Tim Kaine claims he’s against “smashmouth” politics. His campaign purposefully recycling old lies and believing it’s OK to mislead the public with these kinds of discredited attacks says otherwise.
