The Dems are sending around excerpts from Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine’s response to the State of the Union Address. It appears that his theme is “there’s a better way.”
An interesting note to strike for the party devoid of ideas. Take his section on taxes, for example:
Tonight, we heard the President again call to make his tax policies permanent, despite his Administration’s failure to manage our staggering national debt. Over the past five years, we’ve gone from huge surpluses to massive deficits. No parent makes their child pay the mortgage. Why should we allow this Administration to pass down the bill for its reckless spending to our children and grandchildren?
The better way turns out to be Democratic Party retread: tax hikes. That was Mark Warner and Tim Kaine’s “better way” for Virginia — the biggest tax increase in Commonwealth history. Look for concrete ideas and not more of the same from the Democrats tonight. But don’t hold your breath.
Also, we’ll be watching the State of the Union tonight on AmSpecBlog. Join us here for running commentary.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
