It seems Obastard’s “bite size” chunks are still be too big to chew and swallow.
Next time someone at FR is tempted to bitch yet again about the Senate GOP leadership, let’s point out AGAIN that McConnell kept every GOP senator in camp, including those up for re-election next year.
It would have been easy and possibly politically advantageous for Snowe, Kirk, Heller, Scott Brown or any retiring GOP senator to vote YES, especially considering that it would not have affected the outcome with cloture defeated by a wide margin.
It is not easy work to keep a caucus of substantial ideological diversity intact. Like his work opposing Obamacare, McConnell has done a masterful job here.
