Station WHAS in Kentucky recorded Senator McConnel reciting RINO philosophy:
If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I’d say the odds are still on your side, because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.
I imagine the Senator felt the temper and heat of American Conservatism, for within a few hours he crawfished out of that quagmire as best he could. In an interview with Breitbart, McConnel tried to wash away the stain of RINO contamination and capitulation.
I have said many times that if I’m the leader of the majority next year, I commit to the American people that the repeal of ‘Obamacare’ will be job one,” he reiterated. “That includes pursuing reconciliation. What people need to understand is that this is literally a fight for the future of our country and Democrats have proven during this debate that they will stop at nothing to protect this massive expansion of government into our lives and our health care. We need to be aware that this will take every ounce of our energy to accomplish.
Trying to save his political reputation and future, McConnel went on stress that the fight must continue on after the election, with spirited drama.
Our success is dependent upon the voices of the many who are concerned about Obamacare to get involved and stay involved. Do not shut up, do not sit down, do not be intimidated. Keep fighting with every ounce of energy you have. We’ll do the same. The road to repeal begins with a Republican Senate and Mitt Romney in the White House, but it won’t end for me until this historic mistake is wiped off the books for good.
Whether McConnel has the stomach and spirit for the fight will remain to be seen. The most important lesson for us Conservatives is to know our representatives are more than ready to turn RINO on us, unless we threaten them with political extinction. This coming fight is too important to rely on weaklings and turncoats. Let your legislators know what we expect and let them know the consequences of weakness and failure.
