Some here may criticize the time it took him to join us, but I will assume that his position as minority leader required more time to assess the situation.
So what if Paul, the junior senator from his state of Kentucky, is outshining him on every issue. So what if his so-called leadership is a vacuum that has been filled by the Paul-Cruz-Lee trio of conservatism? McConnell has bigger issues to review.
So what if a basic Constitutional right is being challenged? All aspects have to be considered and it was good that McConnell took the time to do so.
If McConnell feels that he must lead from behind the initiative of others, then I welcome his decision to do so. Leaders shouldn't be expected to be innovative or aggressive. I'm glad that Mitch McConnell has decided that relevancy is not a trait of a leader and is willing to allow these newbie senators to exhibit their abilities to be Constitutional Statesmen and establish their own relevancy while they protect the American citizens from tyranny. Again, Mitch McConnell's support is welcomed!
Being Minority Leader often does mean leading from behind, as in herding...for example cats. Paul has really done a great and courageous job.
Let’s get McConnell back on our team by thanking him:
You can email him or call either DC or Kentucky to voice your approval.
