Governor Kaine's response is not great. He keeps citing all the things that governors are doing across the country that are better than what the federal government is doing. If the governors are so great, why did Democrats fight any effort to devolve power back to the states?
And that chant, "There's got to be a better way." is just lame. It sounds like a chant meant to get an audience all excited and pumped up. But there is no live audience for Kaine's speech. So, it comes off as lame rhetorical device.
And I'm sorry for my immature pettiness, but that eyebrow thing he has got going is quite distracting.
Brit Hume just pointed out that "There has got to be a better way" was the slogan used by the Robert Redford character in The Candidate. Not the model for a politician to be following - a fictional guy who got elected on his looks and charisma and then had no clue what to do once he was elected.
