Mitch McConnell is a hateful human being

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican from Kentucky is a particularly disgusting and hateful human being. His malice and willingness to lie are unlimited. He is anti-American. The basis for this invective, well, study the man's career it is filled with dastardly misdeeds.

He is the sort who was opposed to health care for indigent children, but in favor of the continued use of land mines and cluster bombs. The sort who wanted to keep terminally ill patients alive against their will and torture untried non-combatants. He is at the level of vile-ness of a Dick Cheney.

His latest cause; supporting the continued use of inefficient and wasteful federal vehicles, while deriding the purchase of newer more energy efficient vehicles as pork. His methodology is the usual double speak and lies.

If the Republicans keep pushing people like this into limelight and leadership they are headed the way of the Whigs. How stupid do they think the American people are?

The President fortunately, hopefully will continue to call out this deceit wherever he sees it. Obama replied to McConnell's distorted critique offered Sunday on CBS's Face the Nation, today, in a speech at the Department of Energy,
"Critics of this plan ridiculed our notion that we should use part of the money to modernize the entire fleet of federal vehicles to take advantage of state of the art fuel efficiency. This is what they call pork. You know the truth. It will not only save the government significant money over time, it will not only create manufacturing jobs for folks who are making these cars, it will set a standard for private industry to match. When you hear these attacks deriding something of such obvious importance as this, you have to ask yourself -- are these folks serious? Is it any wonder that we haven't had a real energy policy in this country?"

What do you think the rest of the world is doing?
