Senate Republicans Speak To Media After Their Weekly Policy Luncheon

Hot on the heels of Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) 46%‘s splendid, sublime, performance in Failure Theater, Majority “Leader” Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% played the part of a stump trained sheep and surrendered:

It looks like Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58% (R-KY) may have thrown in the towel on the GOP’s effort to stop the Iran nuclear deal from going into effect.

Obama “can win by getting one-third plus one of either house,” McConnell told a business group at an event on Monday in Kentucky, according to the Associated Press. “So he’s still got a great likelihood of success.”

“I hope we can defeat it, but the procedure is obviously stacked in the president’s favor,” he told reporters after the event. “We’ll see.”

This is quintessential Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58%. He engineered a failure and now is manfully resigned to that failure. It was inevitable, ya know, we fought but the president just has the upper hand. This is the man who controls every single Executive Branch appointment. He could stop ambassadors, judges, even military officers from being confirmed by the Senate. He could investigate. He could start impeachment of cabinet officers who testified on this deal. He could single-handedly make the last year and half of Obama’s regime a living hell. But when faced with a foreign policy catastrophe he shrugs his sloped, narrow, old-man shoulders and says, “Let’s vote to repeal ObamaCare and stop funding Planned Parenthood.”

The GOP establishment, the Party elders, and the commentariat wonder why people are flocking to Donald Trump. If they had half a brain they’d realize people are heading to Trump because of nonsense like this.
