Sen. Mitch McConnell: Today’s “Rodney Dangerfield” Award Winner

Congratulations to….
Sen. Mitch McConnell
Today’s “Rodney Dangerfield” Award Winner
After Obama’s inaugural address, Mitch decided to further cement his status as a self-serving Standup Comedian. Towards that end, Mitch criticized Obama’s speech by saying,
“One this is clear from the president's speech: The era of liberalism is back. His unabashedly far-left-of-center inaugural speech certainly brings back memories of the Democratic Party in ages past," McConnell said. "If the president pursued that kind of agenda, obviously it's not designed to bring us together, and certainly not designed to deal with the transcendent issue of our era, which is deficits and debt.”
Mitch’s declaration that deficits and debts are the “exceptional” (transcendent) problem for the country doesn’t pass the involuntary laugh test. Of course deficits and debt are a problem but they sure as hell are not the biggest problem facing the country.
Apparently Mitch doesn’t consider (a) unemployment, (b) skyrocketing medical costs, (c) unconscionable tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, and/or (d) to be of any significance when compared to the national debt.
Mitch duped the voters in Kentucky into electing him to the Senate in 1985. During his time in the Senate, the budget deficit has gone up as follows:
  1. Reagan – Sept 1985 = $1.8 trillion – Sept 1989 = $2.8 trillion = total of $1 trillion
  2. Bush I – Sept 1990 = $3.2 trillion – Sept 1993 = $4.4 trillion = total of $1.2 trillion
  3. Clinton – Sept 1994 = $4.7 trillion – Sept 2001 = $5.8 trillion = total of $1.1 trillion
  4. Bush II – Sept 2002 = $6.2 trillion – Sept 2009 = $11.9 trillion = total of $5.7 trillion
The figures above demonstrate that GOP presidents increased the national debt by $8.7 trillion verses $1.1 for Clinton. I don’t recall Mitch tearing up over the $8.7 trillion in debt passed on to our children and grandchildren by GOP presidents.
It seems as though Mitch invoked his 5th Amendment right to remain silent while Reagan, Bush I and Bush II increased the debt nearly tenfold.
Congrats Mitch; keep up the good work! We should let everyone know of your amazing record as one of America’s most disrespected Standup Comedians; you are far too humble.
