Mitch McConnell: Backstabbing Traitor, or Blithering Idiot?


How about "Both"?

In a not-so-subtle chess move late last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., sent a signal to his rank-and-file that the time is coming to capitulate to Democrats on health care reform. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., did not hesitate to exploit the weakness (emphasis mine)

Mitch McConnell, who did his best to stop the Tea Party, who did his best to prevent President Donald Trump, is now faced with having to actually do what he promised the GOP voters he would do.  And he doesn't want to do that.  He wants to allow the Democrats to run things so that he can make a show of Failure Theater while raking in massive amounts of money from lobbyists and other parasites that infest D.C.

If you want to know who is blocking Donald Trump's agenda, you don't have to look any further than Mitch McConnell.  McConnell was Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck's best friend on Capitol Hill, making sure that the jug-eared fuckwit got his way on almost every legislative pile of crap that came through.  The one thing he can be credited for was stopping Obama from putting a liberal on the SCOTUS.  But that had nothing to do with integrity or principles, and everything to do with the fact that the GOP would have lost control of EVERYTHING if McConnell hadn't blocked it.

We've had to deal with McConnell in a leadership position for far too long, and all we've gotten for it was capitulation to the Democrats, and the restraining of our own side when we should be repealing the worst legislation in my lifetime.  McConnell is a pathetic, two-faced political animal.  He needs to go.
