Tim Kaine has changed his position on whether or not Americans should be forced to pay for abortions as often as he changes is shirt. Apparently he’s also changed positions on whether or not pro-abortion President Bill Clinton should have resigned after the “personal indiscretions” he had while in office.

Fox News covered this Kaine flip-flop:


DOOCY: “Meanwhile, we’ve got some interesting stuff about Tim Kaine, the running mate for Hillary Clinton. For a little perspective, back in 2002, he was the lieutenant governor of the commonwealth of Virginia. And there was a story going on down there where the speaker of the house was involved with something, apparently it is alleged — he groped a woman, pinned her against some office furniture. He said it never happened. There was a settlement. Top Republicans were calling for him to quit, the speaker of the house down in Virginia. And then Tim Kaine was asked about it. And so he said this. He said, ‘If the allegations are true, he ought to resign….When I read it this morning, my reaction was the same I had when I read about the Clinton-Lewinsky affair: this is not appropriate conduct. It’s beneath the dignity of the office.’ So there he’s saying what Bill Clinton did, the running mate — husband, you know, inappropriate for president of the United States. I wonder if he would say the same thing now.”

EARHARDT: “Well, it’s funny you should say that. Because he was asked about that and this was his response now.”

KAINE: “I had — I had some feelings of disappointment back then. But you know, that’s now 20 years old. And when I’m talking to people on the campaign trail, they’re not asking me about old controversies, they’re asking me about tomorrow. What are we going to do tomorrow to have an economy that works for people, to have a stronger security posture through stronger alliances? And I hear a lot. What are we going to do to make sure we have a community that respects all? So, you know, past controversies aren’t that important to me now.”

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!
