He voted for all the bailouts, voted for amnesty, voted to raise the debt ceiling at least nine times, the boondoggle debt ceiling deal of 2011 specifically was his fault, voted for higher taxes...........to name but a few...

Mitch McConnell Thinks Matt Bevin is a More Serious Contender Than He Originally Let On | RedState


Isn't time to start cleaning out the Establishment in the GOP?

As a former albeit short-short term resident of Kentucky (Glasgow of 6 months after I got out of the military) I for one would like to see McConnell and his king-maker status for the GOP Establishment come to an end.

He is part of the problem, not the solution.

What say you?



maybe it's time to see if someone else can't do a better job.

If McConnell could take Harry Reid out the door with him, I think most conservatives would accept that deal. Otherwise, most conservatives this time around would prefer to avoid the stupidity of the past two Senate elections where Republican primary voters threw away the majority.

Kentucky is full of deadbeat drug addicts. Maybe he should just switch parties.

Unfortunatly the senates election system is staggered every 6 years. Harry Reid will be up for election in 2016
