General George Patton once said: “Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.” I wish he was alive today so that he could deliver that message in person to Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Mitch McConnell.
In a recent Elizabethtown Rotary Club meeting, McConnell demonstrated his total lack of ability to lead, follow, or get out of the way when he told attendees that he expects to maintain but not grow the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, calling the chances of gaining seats “pretty slim” because Republicans are defending 24 seats while the Democrats only have 10 to defend.
How pathetic. Unfortunately, based on his display of absolute spinelessness and ineptitude, Mickey is probably overstating his chances.
McConnell helped fund Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Amnesty, supported the budget-busting “doc fix,” and helped confirm Obama’s extreme left-wing judicial and administration nominees, including the confirmation of Eric Holder 2.0, Loretta Lynch.
McConnell vowed to repeal Obamacare “root and branch,” to use spending bills to defund Obama’s agenda, and to deny the confirmation of any Attorney General nominee who supports Obama’s illegal amnesty–unless it’s Loretta Lynch, I guess.
All of these facts explain a recent Pew Research Center poll that show Americans–including Republicans–are extremely unhappy with the job done by the Republican majority so far.
I began this commentary with a quote from General George Patton, so I thought I would end it with one more. On June 5, 1944, Patton gave a speech to the 3rd Army fighting in England where he said the following:
“America loves a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed.” – emphasis mine
I’m pretty sure that Patton would hate Mitch McConnell. I know I sure do.
