It's crystal clear that Mitch McConnell is done. If Republicans are calling on Democrats to step down over mental acuity issues, they should do the same with McConnell.
I feel that the placement of doddering incapable fools in our highest offices is a deliberate demoralization tactic.
They are trolling us.
Well, they can pretend to "lead" it, but none of the named people, including Feinstein, the Squad, the Democrat Party and 99% of the Republicans are good for America. It's time this entity is exchanged for what our founders told us we should have...not leaders, but representatives of the people. The filth I'm seeing from all politicians is not anything the majority of Americans want.
They may not know who, what or where they are, but they all magically know Ukraine needs unlimited United States tax dollars.
Totally agree. At least appoint a new Minority Leader. McConnell is worthless even when he’s not freezing up.
JD...the strategists don't know anything. Mitch must go.
According to Kentucky law ...
"Whereas state law previously allowed the sitting governor to make his or her own appointment to fill a Senate vacancy with no restrictions, Senate Bill 228 passed by the Kentucky legislature in the 2021 session changed that.ended law, the governor now may only choose from three names recommended by the executive committee of the outgoing senator's state party, and must make that selection within 21 days of receiving the list from the party."
However, I never put it past Republicans to blow an opportunity when given the chance.
Well stated; couldn't agree with you more.
Ah, but there's the rub; Mitch is a Democrat!
I agree. If republicans are saying that Biden is unfit to be president because of his health then they are hypocrites if they stay silent on McConnell. And if democrats are saying that about McConnell then they should buy a mirror because they would see Feinstein in it. And I don’t think Pelosi has a full deck of cards. Caitlin Johnstone says that congress is a smelly geriatric nursing home.
We have many members of congress who have been there between 40-50 years and I bet not one of them has been to a store to buy their food or had to pump their own gas and don’t even remember what it was like to make ends meet. Almost all of them are millionaires who got that way through insider trading and other corrupt dealings.
It is apparent to me that the friends and family of McConnell, Biden, Fetterman, Feinstein and others care more for political power than they do for these individuals. Anyone who would not put the well-being of the individual ABOVE the position that person holds, is a heartless scumbag.
Mitch McConnell said today that he is not going to step down. He is going to hang on as long as he can. He definitely should step down, but he won't. 16 months to go.
Another commentor on Substack, whose name I don't remember, coined this moniker for him. It cracks me up, plus it's very accurate. He's a glitch in the matrix.
The Deep State or the ones pulling the strings don't need "leaders". Hence we got brain damaged Fetterman, doddering Biden and McConnell's mini strokes. They only need puppets to do their bidding and with these senior citizens in poor health it begs the question "who is in charge"? The fact that they are not forced to resign is so telling of what is going on behind the scenes. If Biden doesn't it make it to the next stolen election, Kamala Harris will take his place. She's another perfect puppet. She's stupid and loves the limelight. Perfect!
The country is captured and the government is trying to kill its citizens. Congress means nothing. They’re ALL traitors. That’s why NOTHING ever gets dealt with, especially in the interest of America.
JD I always repost your articles here and on GETTR. Any help I can give spreading thoughtful and valuable insight is a given. That’s about my only online presence, but it’s still a little extra. Keep what you do coming. Very encouraging to us flyover peeps.
Being someone who really doesn't play the "politics thing," I look at the situation from a pragmatic, rational, business perspective. The manifest "non compos mentis" situations of the national political figures is disturbing, specifically since they are in the positions of "decision making" that have national consequences on many levels. At some point the CEO and the Board of Directors of any company, due to age, must be retired for the good of the company and replaced with competent actors. That's just good business. It's the "Peter Principle," people rise to the level of their incompetence." It's at that point, I believe, due to age.
McConnell's doctor said he was fit to continue serving. Momentary lapses are not infrequent when a person has had a concussion. A person of any age can have a concussion. So I wouldn't begin to put him in the same class as Biden, Fetterman, etc. Now I don't particularly like McConnell, but it's not time to force retirement yet. That time may come. It might even happen tomorrow. But it hasn't happened yet.
