How did McConnell win
His current Senate term is up in 2020, and he barely won the last election. A Quora.com reporter says…
- “I’m continuously baffled by his appeal in Kentucky, because the most dyed-in-the-wool Republican would have trouble identifying anything he’s done for the commonwealth. Mitch’s only interests appear to be money and power, both for himself and the Republican Party.”
Angela Stockton wraps up the Mitch McConnell profile in two words, “money” and “power.” Either the people of Kentucky–my birth state, unfortunately–are completely stupid, don’t read the papers nor watch TV, or the voting system is fixed and also under the control of McConnell. I go with the latter.
Most disliked member of Senate…probably ever
This from my February 2017 post…
“There are several terms used for Mitch McConnell, the most disliked member of the U.S. Senate, but “condescending prick” in The Daily Banter is perhaps one of the best. My favorite is asshole, which is described in the dictionary as, a stupid, mean, or contemptable person. That certainly works for me. But get this, in Kentucky, Rand Paul, the state’s other Senator, has an approval rank of 51%, McConnell only 40%.
“Even Breitbart, an alt-right publication, says he is the most unpopular U.S. Senator with a 52% disapproval rating, only 38% approve. The man is a disgrace to this country.”
Line up a firing squad for McConnell
I did a post back in April exclaiming that Mitch McConnell deserves the firing squad. Here’s how the post went…
“Can you imagine the line that would form to take up a gun in the shooting party? There’s Chuck Schumer to start with, then Elizabeth Warren followed by Barack Obama, most recently John McCain, and most notably himself, if he could be two places at once. There are more, many that hide their real feeling for this political mutant, because he is so powerful and has absolutely no qualms about what he does.
Sen. Chuck Schumer berates McConnell
“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “No majority leader wants written on his tombstone that he presided over the end of the Senate.” He added…
“Breaking the rules to change the rules is un-American. I just hope the majority leader thinks about his legacy, the future of his party, and, most importantly, the future of our country before he acts.”
Mitch McConnell video “Dikipedia”…
Home state newspaper asks McConnell…Why?
Well, the “head obstructionist” didn’t and the last we heard was that there were still rumbles of repeal and replace for Obamacare. One of Kentucky’s own newspapers, the Louisville Courier-Journal said it best…
“Eight years wasted.
Think about how much better off we all would be if during the last eight years the Republicans worked across the aisle to refine Affordable Care Act, crafting improvements that everyone – including Democratic lawmakers – felt were needed. We might have a much better health care system now that would move us forward towards the humane, and very American, goal of affordable and accessible health care for all.
Mitch: I really don’t understand why. You could have been a real hero in all this. What about the people.”
It’s a given. Mitch McConnell must go!
