The one thing that Tuesday’s primary results leave me certain of is that Mitch McConnell’s tenure as minority leader will not survive the mid-terms elections. The loss of Trey Grayson in the Kentucky GOP primary to Tea Party backed candidate Rand Paul will prove to be the final nail in the coffin for Senator McConnell being in a leadership position. But lets face it what have the Repugs to show for McConnell’s role as party leader, he failed to halt or in any way shape health care reform, and his tactic in regard to finical reform has backfired badly. Not only are the Repugs powerless in the current political climate to stop or slow finical reform but as many will freely admit McConnell’s tactic of taking the bill directly to the floor for amendments has lead to a far more aggressive bill than many of the GOP had hoped for.
Mark my words and remember you heard it here first, the next minority leader in The Senate will be Jim DeMint. On the upside we won’t have to look at McConnell’s weepy face on TV so frequently.
