What’s McConnell So Upset About?
Poor old Mitch McConnell, he feels he’s being picked on. First a recording of strategy to run un-ethical attack ads against expected rival Ashley Judd surfaced, and now there’s a liberal ad comparing him to Al Qaeda. Doggone it, he just can’t catch a break.
What he’s actually angry about is how badly the truth makes him look.
The “Ashley Judd tape” exposed him for what he is, a man with no principals, and no stand on the issues. He has failed miserably as his party’s leader in the Senate. Under his “leadership” nothing has been accomplished.
And we shouldn’t be surprised at either of the above issues. Before the 2012 election, long before campaigning began, he openly told his fellow Republicans, “our only goal, is to make Obama a one-term President”. His tactics continue, and he didn’t accomplish his only idea, but he is continuing his “do-nothing” attitude. He does lead, he leads by example.
“You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle without a background check, most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?” he asks.
The narrator in the ad then says: “Call Mitch McConnell, ask him why he’s in such bad company.”
Two paragraphs above is a quote from a 2011 Al Qaeda video in which American-born spokesman Adam Gadahn talks about how easy it supposedly is to get a weapon in America. The whole thing was put together by Americans United for Change, a liberal activist group.
McConnell and his cohorts are complaining and bashing the video claiming it is an unfair attack on the Senator. They never deny that he holds that exact position, they just don’t like the video.
The Jack Nicholson line in “A Few Good Men”, applies well her. He can’t handle the truth. Senator McConnell is a politician, which has become the ugliest title in America.
I wrote a piece earlier listing the definition of a ‘politician’. It wasn’t good. They are basically described as self-serving men and women whose only goal is to be elected. Add the word “professional” to politician, and you have the most useless human being on the planet.
I have a suggestion for Senator McConnell. If he doesn’t like what’s on the tape or the ad, change. Do something for America instead of for yourself and your supporters. Or just resign. Either one would serve the citizens of our country better than you do now.
