Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared he would not entertain nominating any non-traditional Mainstream Republican candidates in the 2016 election cycle and cautioned voters they are to follow his example.
The message was clear from one of the most powerful Republicans in the nation – the entirety of the GOP Machine is ready and willing to go to war with Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and any other Republican candidate who doesn’t conform to Mr. McConnell’s version of an “acceptable” Republican.
“We will not nominate anybody for the United States Senate on the Republican side who’s not appealing to a general-election audience.”
So went McConnell’s mandate this past week as he shared his thoughts on the upcoming 2016 election cycle. He then became even more specific regarding his feelings on presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz:
“We’d like to have a nominee who can carry purple states because unless the nominee for president can carry purple states, he’s not going to get elected.”
The Senate Majority Leader didn’t elaborate on who the “WE” he was referring to. He is certainly wanting to ensure he maintains his position as Majority Leader and likely fears that if 2016 gives America a President Trump or a President Cruz, even if Republicans maintain a majority in the Senate that leadership position might still be in danger.
McConnell has 5yrs left on his current term of office... we cannot wait that long to remove him from office. Surly, someone has the goods on him. Its time to disclose any criminal conduct in his past and insist that he be removed from office. His close ties with Communist in China should be closely examined, to determine if there have been any acts of espionage and or treason.
The establishment political class no longer fears the public... they have rigged the electoral system so well that it returns upwards of 90% of them every election... in spite, of their single digit approval ratings. Is it any wonder that McConnell is not afraid of sparking repercussions from such comments?
Our electoral system is badly broken... Stalin once said... it is only necessary that the people know an election has occurred. It is not the voters who decide who wins it is those who count the votes who decide. It appears that the GOP and Democrat Party have taken Uncle Joe's advice. It is obvious that the institutional political class no longer fear the voters. Do they know something we don't or refuse to acknowledge? Could it be that our elections are being carefully managed to arrive at predetermined outcomes?
Someone please tell me how Congress... with years of single digit approval ratings, always has an overwhelming majority of incumbent politicians retained in office? Something is rotten in Denmark and it isn't the cheese or the electorate... Whose counting the votes? Who is casting the votes?
The last two elections convinced me that our electoral process had after two centuries been violated thanks to the Communist Democrat Party.
Actually you said something with a good slant. It's actually him that is going against the RP. He is trying to do a divide like obamama does. He's not really slick or shrewd IQ wise but he is devious.
He acts like he is the repub party It's people like him who stunk up the repub cabin.
Hey McConnell, gag, retch, puke...
... And Real Republicans WARN Mitch McConnell to get his bags packed before President Trump' s landslide election.
Mitch had better be gone before Trump takes office... the AG and US Attorney's may want to look into his past financial transactions and campaign financing. Among other things, a gift from his in-laws in Communist China, an entire fleet of merchant marine vessels, worth tens of millions. Can anyone say conflict of interest? Violations of the Campaign Funding or Foreign Gifts and Decorations Act may have occurred.
MATCH MCCONEEL THE CHICOM FLAG BURNER MUST BE PUT OUT TO PASTURE IN THE GOBI DESERT.
THE ALL WHITE DEMOCRAT DEBATES
MRS CLINTON COULD YOU TELL US WHY YOU HUNG UP THE PHONE ON THE 911 BENGHAZI CALL FOR HELP? MRS. CLINTON? MRS CLINTON?
Listen to my new episode LET THE TRUMP PETS SOUND BABY JESUS IS COMING. at http://tobtr.com/s/8170307. #BlogTalkRadio
According to some close Clinton sources, Hillary's delaying absence from her Democrat Debate podium was because she was in the "Men's room" practicing to PEE while standing up and her zipper stuck !!!
There you have it folks. The absolute and complete arrogance of a corrupt elected serpent. Only he and his fellow "republicraps" know what is best for America, not the puny outsiders like Trump who dare to challenge the mighty gop! The ignorant voters MUST follow his example. Really? Like how you told us to vote for McCain and Romney who were both LOSERS! How did that work out for you and your fellow rooster sucking TRAITORS? Oh yeah, they BOTH LOST! And you have the gall to say only the putrescent zombie gop knows how to get a candidate elected as potus? There are no words vile enough to describe what I think of you. Traitor comes close but you even make a traitor look good McConnell.
If this was a movie, it would be so bad it would not even be shown as it is totally unbelievable. Only problem is the gop actually believes their own lies. Makes me want to puke when I hear traitors like McConnell spew their filth.
Go Trump! Go America! To hell with the gop!
