Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine who is under consideration as a possible running mate for Barack Obama gave the Senator credit for the Russian ceasefire in Georgia.
From ABC News' Jake Tapper.
"The Senator's goal was to be tough and smart," Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine said of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, "and so when the action (in Georgia) happened on Thursday, he immediately called for a ceasefire, condemned the unwarranted use of force by Russia. It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words, but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in -- and I'm very, very happy that the senator's request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.

Thus saith the Lord Obama. And it was so.
I’d like to thank my Dad as well, since he too called for a ceasefire.
As we say in Massachusetts, "Don't blame me, I voted for Muffy."
Only one problem - so far, at least 24 hours after that claim was made, there is no cease fire.
It’s either Scrappleface or Tim Kaine has taking ass-kissing to unprecedented levels.
So .... how’s that cease fire working out obammi
Kaine, you utter crawler.
“Tough Words” can stop a mech battalion? Who knew? Maybe the Pentagon needs to look into this? Perhaps we need to draft Harvard Law into a Rapid-Reaction unit?
**Kaine Gives Obama Credit for Russian Ceasefire **
What a bunch of baloney.
Oh, gag me with a fork!!
No, it’s not Scrappleface. You know that podium Obama had, with the fake seal attached to it? Kaine was the one inside that podium. On his knees.
It is almost certainly the latter.
Tim Kaine is a jackass.
That’s fine. I guess by extension we can also blame Obama for the fact that the cease fire has lasted all of about half a day.
On top of that, considering that the Russians haven’t lived up to their end of the bargain and are the ones who have violated the cease fire (thereby validating McCain’s harsh criticism of Moscow), I think Obama’s team would be better off here if they just STFU.
I requested a cease-fire yesterday.
Why am I not receiving the credit I so richly deserve?
And so it is. The One has amazing powers.
Any tough words from Baraq came a full day AFTER he had said both sides were at fault, and that the Security Council (where Russia has a permanent veto) should take this matter up immediately. What a useless wanker!
Did I miss the election?
I thought President Bush was still POTUS.
