Mitch McConnell should be waterboarded after his forced resignation

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), taking heat from Republicans over his opt-out proposal for the debt ceiling debate, offered a terrifyingly inexplicable defense. If the original idea wasn't enough to force his resignation, his response to the criticism should be.

"We knew shutting down the government in 1995 was not going to work for us. It helped Bill Clinton get reelected. I refuse to help Barack Obama get reelected by marching Republicans into a position where we have co-ownership of a bad economy,"

So he should violate his Constitutional oath and put the future of the country in jeopardy because doing what is right may hurt Republicans politically? This isn't 1995. The political climate is very different now and the polls show that an overwhelming majority of voters don't want to raise the debt ceiling.

Regardless of the political climate he was sent to Washington to do a job. McConnell should understand his job description. It was outlined to him when he was sworn in to office. His job is not to get anyone (including himself) reelected. He swore on a bible to defend the Constitution. He is failing miserably. Here is a man so obsessed with the past that he cannot realize today.

"It didn't work in 1995. What will happen is the administration will send out to 80 million Social Security recipients and to military families and they will all start attacking members of Congress. That is not a useful place to take us. And the president will have the bully pulpit to blame Republicans for all this disruption." 

It is remarkable that his jelly made spine allows him to walk in the upright position. The cowardice of his remarks are baffling. The clumsiness of his mental faculty would be laughable if not so frightening.

McConnell is reminiscent of an abused animal who can never escape the horrors of '95 even though the only "abuse" he ever faced was the threat of losing his Job. Unfortunately he has been able to avoid that threat but the danger still haunts every corner of his dilapidated mind.

"If we go into default he (Obama) will say Republicans are making the economy worse," he said. "And all of a sudden we have co-ownership of a bad economy. That is a very bad position going into an election. My first choice was to do something important for the country. But my second obligation is to my party and my conference to prevent them from being sucked into a horrible position politically that would allow the president, probably, to get reelected because we didn't handle this difficult situation correctly."

He wanted to do something good for the country but his obligation to the party would not allow it? What sort of twisted mind thinks it is acceptable to utter such non-sense in public? His first obligation is to uphold and defend the Constitution. His second obligation is to the state of Kentucky.

None of his obligations have anything to do with Obama. It is preposterous that when listing his supposed "obligations" that he did not mention his constituents. I wonder if they even exist in his feeble excuse for a mind.

In an earlier post I suggested that McConnell should be forced to resign. I am still of that mindset but I am not sure he doesn't deserve to be tried for treason. We should at least be able to waterboard him.
