Just last week Governor Tim Kaine made our prestigious quote of the day for saying he would take action on a "green initiative" report given to him because studies don't gather dust in his administration, yet he didn't know what was in the study he was just presented so he didn't know what action he would take. In yesterday's Richmond Times-Dispatch he made clear what conservatives say about liberals, and what liberals say about themselves only after elected (though the opposite while campaigning) — to wit, he's doesn't believe in reducing government's spending of your tax dollars: 

"Let's be realistic. You don't run for governor to make budget cuts."

This is not a conservative conspiracy. No one is making this up. Which leads us to ask what we always ask when we read such nonsense:

Why do people believe that liberals will govern contrary to liberal orthodoxy and to what they actually say about themselves?
