If Mitch had been leader since Lott got railroaded, we would have a stronger Republican Senate, and less likely defeat in November.
McConnell would be an excellent choice!I recall when he presided over the Senate committee that addressed Bob Packwood's sexual misconduct. McConnell insisted that all the meetings be closed to the public.The media screamed "Good Ole Boy Network" and blasted McConnell for the wrist slap they just knew his committee would give a fellow Republican Senator.The Committee had Packwood removed from the Senate. That's the way political leaders are supposed to behave. Rather than preening before the cameras, get to the bottom of the situation and make the right decision!McConnell has shown excellent leadership skills and has been steadfast regarding his conservative principles.My only complaint is his support for the Sense of the Senate measure that asked the Bush Administration to explain his war policies to the Senate on a regular basis. That doesn't sound so bad now. But, given the political climate at the time, it was rightly percieved as a vote of no confidence for the President at a crucial time.I'm still mad about that!But I would support McConnell for Senate leader. It's time for strong Republican leadership. Wishy-washiness has gotten us worse than nowhere. We're actually losing ground.
You hit the nail on the head with the word tenacious.McConnell is a true patriot of our party. He knew the Senate would never impeach a president for lying about a personal affair. He knew Clinton was a war president while Kosovo was being bombed. He knew Clinton was trying to take out Bin Laden, and luckily he never stopped his quest to take down the president. When Clinton attempted to take out Bin Laden, McConnell put a quick stop to it by crying “wag-the-dog” and “rule of law”.McConnell has never voted for an increase to social services, he’s always voted for more military funds and tax cuts for the wealthy. I’m really proud of his family values and good judgment. A man of principle is a well deserved title.
