McConnell Admits the GOP is Opposed to Libya Campaign Because Obama is President
Somehow, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell let the truth slip out yesterday: McConnell: GOP Would Not Voice Opposition To Libya Campaign If Obama Was A Republican.
MCCONNELL: The only thing I can tell you at this point is that there are differences. I’m not sure that these kind of differences might not have been there in a more latent form when you had a Republican president. But I do think there is more of a tendency to pull together when the guy in the White House is on your side. So I think some of these views were probably held by some of my members even in the previous administration, but party loyalty tended to mute them. So yeah, I think there are clearly differences and I think a lot of our members, not having a Republican in the White House, feel more free to express their reservations which might have been somewhat muted during the previous administration.
If you needed any other evidence that the GOP puts partisan politics even above issues of national security, Mitch McConnell just told you exactly what drives today’s Republican Party.
