If there is one Republican that I would love to see removed from office it would be Senator McConnell (R-KY).
Correction… I don’t necessarily need to see him removed from office, but I have been trying to get him removed from leadership almost since I started to cover politics.
That will not happen anytime soon, at least if McConnell has anything to do with it, reported NBC News.
McConnell, who is now 81 years old, is an empty vessel in terms of leadership.
As the GOP Senate Leader, he should be out on the trail, identifying and supporting candidates. He did virtually nothing in 2022, and we all saw the results of that.
With his current health concerns, the Senate still put him in leadership after McConnell selfishly put his name in the hat again.
Just what are they expecting out of McConnell in the 2024 cycle?
With the call to have him step down, at least from leadership, growing louder, McConnell has once again defied everyone.
When he was recently asked about retiring or stepping down from his leadership position, he responded, "I'm going to finish my term as leader, and I'm going to finish my Senate term," reported Fox News.
While there is growing movement to have him ousted, far too many Senators in the GOP continue to act as though Mitch freezing up in front of a microphone, twice, is perfectly normal.
Senator Kennedy (R-LA) stated, "Mitch talked about his health history.
"He went over the tests he's had, said he's been given a clean bill of health, indicating he's had two of these episodes. And both of them happen at press conferences.
"And otherwise, he worked hard in August and raised about $49 million."
And that right there tells you what this is all about… money. And Mitch continues to be a great fundraiser, so they want him in there.
Senator Graham (R-S.C.) added, "I feel really good behind Mitch. Let’s move forward."
He also made my point because it really does not matter how Graham feels about him because Graham is there to represent We the People and WE are not happy with Mitch.
More along my lines of thinking was Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), who stated, "I'm concerned about his health. I mean, I'm concerned about the president's health. I'm concerned about his health. I don't think you can have it both ways."
Joe and Mitch are old buddies, so how about we send them both packing so they can sit on the porch and sip on some Country Time?
