If useful for nothing else, the Democratic progressives in the Senate never fail to display the depths to which they are willing to go in order to keep their slimy paws on the reins of power.
Just weeks out from a time when Harry Reid refused to allow Republicans to offer any amendments to potential legislation, the Democrats are now crying foul because Mitch McConnell brought an end to what was an obvious attempt by progressives to bring up amendments whose only purpose in life was to stop a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline.
The blind, utter hypocrisy of the progressive left is now on full display for the entire universe to see and against this political circus backdrop, it will be interesting to see how many Americans are embarrassed enough to be in any way, shape or form connected to the left side of the political spectrum.
The Conservative Collective predicts that many hundreds of thousands of left-leaning folks will decide to distance themselves from the Democratic Party and not having the courage to become Libertarians or Republicans, will instead choose simply to become Independents. Despite the easily predictable waves of crocodile tears and mock outrage, some Americans will cling to the ephemeral notion that the Democratic Party is the party of the people, when the reality is that the party is nothing more than a socialist vacuum cleaner, taking what it can from whomever it can, whenever it can.
By way of contrast, Mitch McConnell, no friend of the Conservative Collective (see “Mitch the Bitch”), has allowed amendments from the left (already better than when Harry Reid ran blocker for Barry) in good faith only to find out that “good faith” is a virtue unknown to progressives. Given his experience, he should have known better, but we guess he had to show America that he was willing to conduct the business of the Senate with a modicum of integrity and to give the same chance to the spawns-of-satan left.
Now that McConnell knows the lay of the current 2015 political landscape, the Conservative Collective feels he should emulate Harry Reid going forward, but in a supremely conservative mode. The senate majority leader should now accept that the senate democrats have no intention of playing with honor and adopt a good, old-fashion “scorched-earth” policy as regards the left side of the aisle.
McConnell should put on a pair of balls, along with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones and proceed ahead with a plan to disassemble everything Barry has done…and that means EVERYTHING!!!
McConnell needs to overtly threaten enough democrats into joining a veto-proof senate and then move ahead, doing the job he was sent to do on the behalf of the American people. This is no time to coddle the liars, cheats and snake-oil vendors who call themselves “Democrats”. Rather, this is the time to skin each one (politically, of course) and hang the remains on the walls of his office as trophies and as a warning to those who will not dance to his tune. Harry Reid did it with great zeal at the request of Barry, why not McConnell at the request of the Americans who handed him his gavel?
The Conservative Collective does not trust Mitch McConnell as far as we can throw him, but we admit that he is showing small signs of doing what is right for our country. Now, he needs to speed things up by four or five times and finish the demolition of the legislative perversions put in place over the past six years by Reid and company.
It can be done…the question is will it be done?
