The Finger Lickiní Fraud Gets Caught in his Game (loved reading this!!)

Ever since Senator Mitch McConnell sensed some vulnerability from his Republican base in Kentucky, he has cunningly voted the right way on most major issues, but of course waiting until the outcome was no longer in doubt. McConnell’s painstaking management of his voting record began in two tranches – a mild drift to the right once Trey Grayson was defeated by Rand Paul in 2010 and an acerbic turn after Matt Bevin started toying with a Senate run.

However, despite the shift in his actual voting record, McConnell has continued to artfully advance his real agenda of big government, an agenda which is shared by his puppet-masters on K Street. As the party leader, McConnell sits back on any contentious issue and privately hopes yes while voting no. He has declined to whip the votes; he hasn’t even put out a statement in support of the conservative position until the vote is cast. The desired outcome for Mitch is that the capitulation be made; the bad bill wind its way to the President’s desk, but his hands remain clean of any wrongdoing.

This modus operandi was completely demolished today.

McConnell showed up at the weekly Steering Committee lunch today to berate Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz from pushing the undocumented Democrats to take tough votes. This meeting is traditionally a conservative get-together dating back to when Jim DeMint used to run it. But McConnell and his minions hijacked the meeting and began pointing fingers at Cruz and Lee.

Mitch isn’t a RINO he is actually a Democrat.

Yeah, I’m pleased in the extreme in seeing ol’ Mitch finally get hoisted with his own petard.

He’s got ads running on ZeroHedge knocking Bevin (just saw them)...

Know nothing about Bevin myself, but the headline of them (McConnell ad) is he was a TARP (Taxpayer Ass Raping Program) and other bailout supporter...
