McConnell accuses Democrats of obstructing the Senate in a "partisan tantrum"
30 replies, posted
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ripped Senate Democrats on Tuesday, comparing their plan to prevent the chamber from taking up legislation to a “partisan tantrum.”
“Now they’re threatening to shut the Senate down, too. ...They’re threatening to shut down efforts to protect our allies and strengthen our relationship with Israel. Something they all
recently claim to support,” McConnell said from the Senate floor. Democrats, including Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), are expected to vote against taking up a foreign policy
bill, arguing the Senate should keep its focus on government funding legislation.
“They’ve put that partisan tantrum ahead of keeping a quarter of the government open and now they’re saying their partisan tantrum is more urgent than pressing legislation that
concerns our alliances with Israel and the Syrian civil war,” McConnell said.
The foreign policy bill includes sanctions against the Syrian government, while bolstering U.S. support for Jordan and Israel. It’s scheduled to get a procedural vote on Tuesday
evening. Democrats will need 41 votes to block the bill.
This from the guy who refuses to let the Senate even vote on legislation to protect Mueller?
Oh my god. What a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
I will literally cheer out loud when this Vicchy fuck dies.
say it with me
Who on earth calls 2006 "twenty oh six". Is he an alien?

Republicans must have some form of collusion with the Irony Detector industry.
Mconnell alone has melted six of mine.
It's 2018 and Republicans are shutting down the government because the Democrats won't throw billions of tax payer dollars away into a money sink that won't accomplish anything.
Republicans have become everything they hate.
Please, Republicans have been everything they hate for the last twenty years. They are a party of unapologetic hypocrisy.
But it's ok when they do it, silly.
From The Suffocation of Democracy by Christopher Browning:
"If the US has someone whom historians will look back on as the gravedigger of American democracy, it is Mitch McConnell. He stoked the hyperpolarization of American politics to make the Obama presidency as dysfunctional and paralyzed as he possibly could. As with parliamentary gridlock in Weimar, congressional gridlock in the US has diminished respect for democratic norms, allowing McConnell to trample them even more. Nowhere is this vicious circle clearer than in the obliteration of traditional precedents concerning judicial appointments. Systematic obstruction of nominations in Obama's first term provoked Democrats to scrap the filibuster for all but Supreme Court nominations. Then McConnell's unprecedented blocking of the Merrick Garland nomination required him in turn to scrap the filibuster for Supreme Court nominations in order to complete the "steal" of Antonin Scalia's seat and confirm Neil Gorsuch."
If hell exists, Mitch McConnell is going to burn for eternity. He is the embodiment of pure evil.
I don't know, he certainly doesn't look human.
Obstructionism is bad when we have a republican president
So unreasonable of the Democrats to want the government to actually be open and functioning before moving on to other things
I wonder if he just writes these speeches by staring at himself in a mirror.
Got a taste of his own medicine.
Why don't you choke on your jowl cartilage.
McConnell is a fascist plain and simple. There is no other man besides Donald Trump that I hate in the United States government more than Mitch McConnell.
McConnell put that middle east bill to a vote again less then a day after it was blocked. The government's still shut down because of him.
I hate them more, Gingrich and McConnell broke bi-partisanship and politics, dudes even pride themselves over it.
Long after Trump is gone, the culture of partisanship and obstructionism that they introduced will remain.
Suck it down mitch the bitch
You just know the day he croaks people are going to get all pissy if you make fun of him dying, because someone dying apparently suddenly makes them a saint.
McConnell will not get that treatment. He is hated at the moment, has been hated for decades, and will be hated forever. He has 30% approval in Kentucky alone.
If you're referring to the whole McCain thing it's not even remotely comparable, people would piss on McConnell's grave and everyone here would cheer for it.
Well that technically should be the correct way to say it... Eighteen hundreds, nineteen hundreds, two thousand... wait what happened to 20 through 1,999
Turtle Cunt spams unconstitutional bill protecting Israel three times whilst keeping the government shut down.
The GOP could oust him at any time to get this shit over with. But they won't. Will just continue to say the government needs to be reopened but not actually do anything.
Mitch McConnell is gigantic piece of shit that deserves to be ousted next election, his seat is up for grabs, hopefully he loses.
