McConnell Speaks Sooth

In a speech that went largely unheard due to the lamestream media’s refusal to defy the Obama Regime, US Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell spoke sooth and laid out the harsh truth of America’s largest political problem.

Back in November, the American people sent a divided government to Washington.

I know this is not the outcome President Obama had hoped for.

I know he wanted complete control of Washington, just like he had the first two years of his presidency.

Still, it was surprising to me and I think to a lot of other people around here to learn over the weekend that among the first calls the President made after his acceptance speech on Election Day had to do with ginning up another campaign.

The President wasn’t focused on solving the problems that middle-class families face today, but how to get a Democratic Speaker of the House two years down the road. That was the message he sent to top House Democrats.

Since then, the President, along with his Washington Democrat allies, has expended enormous amounts of energy to advance that goal – rebooting his political organization, provoking manufactured crises with Congress, engineering show votes in the Senate, and traveling around the country to campaign relentlessly against his opponents.

That’s why the Sequester went into effect in its current form.

That’s why Washington continues to careen needlessly from crisis to crisis.

Those are the harsh truths of the matter and it’s almost heartening to hear someone like McConnell bring them into the light in so straightforward a manner. Only almost though, speaking the truth does little if few or none listen and/or few or none are willing to act upon those truths in the manner that they need to be acted upon.
