McConnell Says Democrats Want Our Soldiers Dead

Wingnut Mitch "Mo' Money" McConnell is one of the people that the Democratic majority is supposed to try to work with, he sure doesn't make it easy does he? At least he didn't call us traitors(this time).

Mitch McConnel: Democrats want the troops dead.

I’m not kidding. Listen to the clip. I’ve provided full context - the question before, and the question after. McConnel never qualified his statements. Below is the relevant transcript:

Bennett: “…what does the position feel like, do you suppose, when you’re a Democrat in the Senate when your political well being is tied to, I guess, rooting that we don’t succeed…”

McConnell: “Yeah, I mean that I… there’s no question that they don’t wish this exercise well, which is why they keep moving the goalposts and keeping the issue alive. In the meantime we’re talking about the lives of our soldiers, we’re talking about the lives of a very large number of Iraqis…“
Thanks to Crooks and liars.
