The GOP is doing a real disservice if McConnell is ever allowed to be majority leader again. I can handle him as minority leader because he has done fairly well with parliamentary moves, etc. He’s a terrible spokesperson, though, for the party opinion. As time goes on, communications skill is #1 for any position. Unfortunately, with Boehner and McConnell, we have terrible representation on TV. A real opportunity missed.
I don't know if I totally agree with you. Denny Hastert was a very good House Speaker and he was a fat, old, ugly, slow talking dude with thick glasses. He looked awful on TV and seemed very uncomfortable in interviews but he got real things done. On the other hand, we have Mr Tanning Booth with a $200 haircut running the House and a smooth talking southerner in the Senate and they are fully incapable of getting anything done.
