I'm not victorious over video embeds today so we have to make do with a mere link to Sen. McConnell's speech here. In this way are vital issues considered in the world's greatest deliberative body.
This speech by Sen. McConnell is further discussed by Neil Munro at Breitbart, for which h/t.
McConnell's talking about the latest gigantic spending bill. It's an equally-gigantic sellout by the GOP. He knows it. They know it.
The maneuvering you see is designed to do one thing and one thing only -- to prevent the American electorate from knowing anything about this 2,000-page bill. "It's all good. Good luck reading it yourself, bitchez."
Congressman Rep. Curt Clawson, (R-Fla., Tea Party extremist), above, gets it that:
- the debt-GDP ratio is approaching that of Spain and Italy;
- a great opportunity to do something about our fiscal madness was passed up by agreeing this massive spending bill;
- Republicans shouldn't roll over every time;
- there's no point in caving on important issues so you can fight the really good fight later on if you never fight later on; and
- it's no use saying the presidency in 2016 is the great prize if you give up your values in the process of trying to attain it.
If I ever called the French cheese-eating surrender monkeys I hereby apologize sincerely. I don't think I ever did, but, just in case I did, I'm very sorry. Nikolas Sarkozy looks like that molon labe guy compared to Ryan and McConnell.
I couldn't retrieve the embed code for the video for some reason so here's the link to the Cavuto interview with Rep. Clawson. It's concentrated fiscal and political sense well worth your time (3m54s).
It's distilled far-right-wing extremism but try to get past that.
