Go to YouTube.
Key the words "Governor Tim Kaine Launches Renew Virginia Initiative" into the search engine.
And this is what you get:
Now why would the "user" - the Kaine campaign - pull this political advertisement?
Why wouldn't Mr. Kaine be touting from the rooftops that "green jobs" initiative he was so proud of just a few years ago?

Green jobs revealed as fiscal black holeIncluded on that list of "other champions of taxpayer-subsidized energy schemes," is Tim Kaine.
Orange County Register editorial
The faddish obsession with "green jobs" is being revealed as a massive waste of taxpayer money.
Pipe dreams eventually are revealed for what they are – unrealistic, wishful thinking. It didn't take long for Spain's touted green-job revolution to be revealed as a financial disaster, siphoning taxpayer subsidies and destroying 2.2 real jobs for every green job created.
Domestic green-job pipe dreams similarly drain U.S. taxpayers' money into economic sink holes. The millions of so-called green jobs promised by President Barack Obama and other champions of taxpayer-subsidized energy schemes not only haven't materialized, many that did, already are disappearing.

Maybe that's why he'd rather not talk about it.
His green jobs initiative, like the man himself - is a loser.
