He’s cool, calm, and out to get Obama.
By: Howard Fineman
The blizzard had paralyzed Washington. So it was an apt day for a chat (by phone) with Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican who is working successfully—yet with surprisingly little personal notoriety—to bury the Barack Obama presidency in an unplowed cul-de-sac called the U.S. Senate. As the GOP leader there, McConnell strands Democrats in snowdrifts of parliamentary procedure and nasty talking points. “We are not just reflexively looking for areas where there will be no progress,” he assured me. Having spent many years listening to McConnell, I can translate: he is reflexively looking for areas where there will be no progress. MORE HERE
I don’t like Mitch McConnell. I’ve heard that as you age, your facial features start to express the mindset you’ve developed over the years, i.e., kind, less kind and downright ornery. I’m not sure if there’s any validity in this but when I look at Mitch McConnell’s face, I see a selfish one-track mind bent on getting its own way no matter who or what suffers. If he had been born around 150 yrs ago he would have owned slaves. Slaves he would have worked to death because he could do so. The only difference about today’s McConnell type selfishness is THERE ARE NO SLAVES. But if McConnell could bring down President Obama (even if it means bringing down the USA with him) he would enjoy the same satisfaction of being a master (BOSS) over other human beings (SLAVES).
“Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either [aristocracy or monarchy]. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

With Mitch McConnell’s help it will happen sooner rather than later. thinkingblue
