Senator Mitch McConnell, December 2016:
And, now, after 7 months of failure on his ‘first order of business”…
Senator Mitch McConnell, yesterday:
As he dumped his failure on, who else, President Trump: “…the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point”
“…the reason I think people feel we’re under-performing is because too many artificial deadlines — unrelated to the reality of the complexity of legislating — may not have been fully understood…”
…meaning (we guess), who would be so naive as to expect ‘done by a certain point’ to mean his ‘first order of business’ should take only a mere unrealistic 7 months?
After all, the GOP only had 7 YEARS to prepare for his ‘first order of business’, and hey, we should all understand the ‘complexity of legislating’ means deadlines are a no-no.
What to do, what to do? Oh, hey, blame it on Trump…yeah, yeah,that’s the ticket…the President’s a neophyte – and Americans are too simple to understand complexity.
Senator McConnell, you…and your fellow leadership GOP Senators…have turned the ‘world’s most deliberative body’ into the laughing stock of legislatures everywhere.
But, don’t feel bad…polls show America doesn’t expect much from Congress anymore.
You know…complexity being what it is and all.
