At Last a Republican Leader Has Arrived

with one comment

Since the election, many of us on the right have been awaiting a new leader to emerge from the Republican party.  I am happy to say we finally have one in Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell.  McConnell made a lot of news during the auto bailout crisis. He didn’t really attract my attention then because it isn’t like turning Detroit into a wasteland of poverty has a very high degree of difficulty.  However, recently McConnell has set his sites much higher by taking on the financial wellbeing special interests.  These special interests have already gotten to Obama.

These financial wellbeing people are willing to turn their back on the sound financial Republican principles that built this economy for things like economic recovery and jobs.  McConnell has steadfastly refused to play this game by leading the charge against any kind of economic initiative or giving into the Unemployment Lobby.  If only we had men like him to stop the New Deal.  McConnell frequently reminds folks Republican senators representing 37% of the nation’s population and that’s half.  What I really like about McConnell is the new bipartisan spirit he has embraced since sometime in Fall of last year.  If Obama wants a successful administration he will work with McConnell to craft the type of legislation that us Republicans will get behind, the type of legislation that President Bush would have gotten behind.
