Mitch McConnell Is Panicking As The ‘Moscow Mitch’ Label Sticks

https://www.politicususa.com/2019/07/29/mitch-mcconnell-is-panicking-as-the-moscow-mitch-label-sticks.html



Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has always been shameless in his efforts to ignore what’s best for the country in order to protect his party and his president.

But as the ‘Moscow Mitch’ label continues to stick to him after he refused to advance commonsense election security legislation through the Senate, he looks to be increasingly panicked.

That was clear earlier on Monday as he took to the Senate floor to defend himself from a chorus of backlash that he’s faced in recent days.

On Twitter, the Senate majority leader played damage control, desperately (and laughably) accusing his critics of “doing Putin’s destabilizing work for him.”

As Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, said on Monday, “Clearly Mitch McConnell is a bit freaked by #MoscowMitch.”

Could 2020 be the year Mitch McConnell is sent packing?


Mitch McConnell is still the favorite to win reelection in deep-red Kentucky next year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a scenario in which he could be sent packing.

Let’s first start with the fact that the Kentucky senator will face well-funded Democrat and former fighter pilot Amy McGrath in 2020. As PoliticusUSA’s Jason Easley wrote earlier this month, McGrath is poised to shatter fundraising records in her quest to beat McConnell.

In addition to a strong challenger, McConnell faces his own image problems as he is the most hated senator in America. Trump’s approval rating in Kentucky – a key indicator for how the state will vote – has also declined by nearly 20 points since he took office..............................

1. I have seen "Moscow Mitch" right here on DU before Joe Scum.

I have to admit I do appreciate the work of Joe Scum lately.

4. Mitch just admitted Republicans are doing Putin's dirty work.

Modern-day McCarthyism is poison for American democracy. It is shameful to imply that policy disagreements make the other side unpatriotic. The people who push such unhinged smears are doing Putin’s destabilizing work for him.



NOW he's worried about trash talk? NOW?

Snort.

9. "Shameful to imply that policy disagreements..unpatriotic"

You have GOT to be fucking kidding me?!?!?! That evil hypocritical motherfucker went THERE?!?!

After all the stupid shit they accuse us of being unpatriotic and anti-American for???

Don’t want military grade weapons available for open purchasing? Unpatriotic.
Want laws and Law enforcement applied equally across all races/cultures? Anti-police and anti-American.
Want basic human rights and human dignity for immigrants? Unpatriotic and anti-American.
Love the freedoms that the US flag is supposed to stand for so much that you even support peoples right to burn it in protest? Anti-American/unpatriotic.
Support gay right to marriage? Unpatriotic.
Support fair taxation on corporations? Unpatriotic and anti-free enterprise/capitalism.

No, Moscow Mitch, shameful is the shear level of utter hypocrisy at your outrage about this accusation here.

10. The KGBOP is the Putin party now

With trump being told along with Moscow Mitch what they can and can't do, and Putin now has control of some of our government using them and many others who are compromised from their corruption. Both Moscow Mitch and his wife should be scared , along with trump because the truth will expose them for what they are, criminals , and traitors to this country. They're scared of the truth getting out, but its too late.

12. Lets see what Moscow Mitch does to get re-elected,ve

First he usually uses his position to bring some fat-juice government job to a district he needs to win. Then he uses it in a compaign ad and everyone here votes him in again and again. So what's his latest? An aluminum factory owned by an oligarch and close friend of Putin. Republicans are falling all over themselves trying to take credit for landing that 'Job Creator'.

30. It's Kentucky, though

In 2014, he was in a close race with Alison Lundergren Grimes - the polls had him with a small lead throughout the summer and into the early fall in 2014. But, over the last month, Mitch pulled away and won by around 15% - I think he was finally able to scare up those rural white voters to vote for him and/or against Obama.

23. Amy McGrath needs to use it every day

Dems need to take off the gloves, I know it sounds childish, but she needs to call him Moscow Mitch in every single campaign ad and speech. It's what will work. "Moscow Mitch never met a pro Russian policy he disliked." "Old Moscow Mitch, which side is he on?"

Make them play defense for a change.
