Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has to go…period!
After what happened yesterday regarding the nuclear option that Dingy Harry rammed through the senate for his Dear Leader, and Mitch McConnell’s weak response to all of this while on the senate floor, was just plain maddening to say the very least. Mitch thinks it was sad…sad folks, just very sad!
Here’s a partial piece of information via this site:
“It’s time to change the Senate before this institution becomes obsolete,” Reid said in a lengthy floor speech on Thursday morning.
A furious Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who tried to recess the Senate for the day before the rules change could get a vote, said after the minority’s power was limited by Democrats: “I don’t think this is a time to be talking about reprisal. I think it’s a time to be sad about what has been done to the United States Senate.”
But McConnell quickly noted that Republicans could fix the problem in the upcoming midterm elections by reversing the rules if they regain the majority: “The solution to this problem is an election. The solution to this problem is at the ballot box. We look forward to having a great election on 2014.”
So, if we win the senate in ’14…he’s going to reverse the rules instead of fighting fire with fire and pay backs are hell type of thing! – What the hell is wrong with this man? And how the writers of this column dare to call Mitch ‘furious‘ when he spoke is simply astounding…simple as that. – I know…I watched all of this from beginning to end! If you call that fury, I’ll eat my hat!
See if what was said below sounds like he was angry or not. But wait, he got some laughs for a one-liner:
Now folks, there’s another devastating report that’s floating around the internet regarding McConnell and his behind the scenes actions when it comes to whom he thinks his real enemies are…and if true, this is despicable to say the least. Of course the no-good RINO, Karl Rove is involved in this mix as well…big time!
Read the story in full here:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisers on Oct. 30 that the Tea Party movement, in his view, is a “nothing but a bunch of bullies” that he plans to “punch … in the nose.”
On the call, according to a donor who was on it, McConnell personally named Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) as Tea Party conservatives he views as problematic for him. “The bulk of it was an attack on the Tea Party in general, Cruz in particular,” the source, a prominent donor, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News.
But the most memorable line came at the end of the call.
“McConnell said the Tea Party was ‘nothing but a bunch of bullies,’” the source said. “And he said ‘you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do.’”
Rove, as well as American Crossroads President and CEO Steven J. Law who also serves as the president of sister group Crossroads GPS, were also on the call. Rove “talked in a slightly gentler way, or let’s say, a more diplomatic way,” the source said. “But the message was pretty well the same: That if we’re going to save this thing, we have to back real Republicans.”
Pointing to how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just invoked the “nuclear option,” breaking 225-year old Senate rules to slip through President Obama’s liberal nominees, an aide to a Tea Party lawmaker said that McConnell’s focus on trying to go after the Tea Party has jeopardized Senate Republicans’ chances at actually beating Democrats. “Under Sen. McConnell’s watch, Republicans today just got rolled over by Democrats who pushed the button on the nuclear option, destroying years of well-established Senate order,” the aide said in an email to Breitbart News. “Perhaps if he focused less on destroying the Tea Party and more on defeating Democrats, he’d have more to show for his leadership.”
Rove spokesman Jonathan Collegio denies that anything was said about Cruz, Lee, or the Tea Party in general but admits the call did take place and that “some discussion” about the government shutdown and the Senate Conservatives Fund took place.
“Your source is ascribing things to the call that simply were never said,” Collegio said in an email. “There was no ‘anti-tea party donor call.’ There was a call, and there was some discussion about the government shutdown and the Senate Conservatives Fund (note this was one day after SCF launched a dishonest ad about McConnell), but nothing about the Tea Party or Sens. Cruz or Lee.”
Collegio declined to provide a transcript or recording of the call to Breitbart News. McConnell’s office has not commented on the matter.
Limbaugh had something to say about this report above today, listen below:
Lastly, Mark Levin sums up what happened yesterday to a tee…and he ain’t a happy camper! He spoke volumes for millions of us…and then some! – Read the report here:
Yesterday’s nuclear fallout from Harry Reid pushing the big red button on the filibustering of non-Supreme Court nominees has left practically everyone on the right seething, but Mark Levin was particularly fired up by the GOP’s less-than-forceful response to the power grab. He asked, “Do the Republicans in the United States Senate have any self-respect whatsoever? Do they understand they look like a bunch of buffoons and cowards?”
He mocked Republicans for singing the same song about how “it’s a sad day” in the Senate instead of getting real with the Democrats about how significantly and quickly the tables will turn on them the second the GOP takes control of the Senate.
Levin said the Republicans should have warned Democrats that when they take power, they’ll go even further, strip the entire filibuster, and then go after Obamacare with a simple majority. But they didn’t do that, which is why Levin felt no reservations about calling Senate Republican leadership “losers” who are “perfectly comfortable with tyranny.”

For me, Mitch McConnell is the RINO of the Week…what say you about all of this?
