    1. I give him props for this. It really shows how there are real politicians and then there are those who grab as much power as they can and be shown to be ineffectual even if they control the entire government.

    2. I bet that we don’t even get the Covid relief package in the first 100 days of Biden’s presidency. The moment I saw Pelosi push for a vote on impeachment in the house, I guessed this. They don’t want to accomplish anything and those who do, don’t wield enough power to force the issues.

  1. Now is the soon to be minority leader’s last best chance to end things with the soon to be ex-president and take custody of the best remaining parts of the damaged GOP.

  2. Do not trust McConnell to do anything but enrich himself, lie, and wield power for the sole mindless purpose of remaining ‘relevant’.

    1. @Glenn Kent
      Q: How do you milk a sheep?
      A: Tell them the election was stolen and ask for donations.
      Q: How do you herd sheep?
      A: Tell them to storm the Capitol and Trump will remain president. Trump supporters are the very definition of sheeple and patsies.

  3. Correct. Mitch is a creature of habit. Self preservation. Let his colleagues stew awhile & then purge Trump & Trumpism from the GOP.

    1. @warpedjaffas1 our goal is to make the republican party obsolete so that we can make the democratic party the rightful conservative party.

    2. @warpedjaffas1 obviously not happening soon, but we have time on our side. Every consecutive generation has been getting much more left leaning. I’d give it 30 years

    3. @Ryan Walsh try 8 yrs. Once the masses taste it they’ll never go back. Same happens globally, once a citizenry truly embraces democratic reform even the most fervourant right winger will not go back. Conservatism is dying along with its mainstay, religion. Its a good thing. Reliance on ancient myths can get people killed, lots of them and is antithetical to humans who are progressive due to evolution. God had nothing to do with me sending you this message on YouTube. Human ingenuity did. Thinking otherwise is for the feeble minded.

  4. I agree with Mitch….. “For Once!” LOL -When we know who was possibly running “Pre-Insurrection Tours” needs to go to jail – do not pass go and do not collect $200!

  5. mitch ain’t sweating it because they were calling out for pence & pelosi…back in his shell he goes.

  6. McConnell as always, contemplating personal and political expediency without concern for the health of our nation or it’s citizens. Disgusting.

    1. Oh No Mitch absolutely does stand for making money. Mitch isn’t democrat or republican he’s whatever puts the money in his pocket.
