McConnell said the Tea Party was ‘nothing but a bunch of bullies … And he said ‘you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do.’
Given that Harry Reid has just unleashed the nuclear option against the filibuster (or “againts” the “fillibuster”, according to his staff) in order to ram judicial nominations down the throat of the GOP, McConnell’s comments are indicative of everything wrong with the man. It is certainly true that he made those comments a month ago, and Reid acted this week. At the same time, he seems much more willing to go after fellow Republicans who rock the boat than after Democrats who are willing to break rules in order to bully the American people.
And McConnell wonders why conservatives don’t trust him?
