Dana Milbank, not a reliable supporter of everything liberal, heard McConnell’s opening speech as leader of the Senate, citing McConnell’s declaration that the surge in the economy was a response to the election of Republicans in the mid-terms. Milbank wrote: “He was referring, obviously, to news that the U.S. economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter, the fastest in more than a decade, furthering record highs in stocks. By McConnell’s logic, Americans began to spend freely in July, August and September because they had a hunch Republicans would win the Senate in November and take control in January. “
And I will guarantee you that is exactly what most Republicans think, and the ones who don’t are quite happy letting their brothers in stupidity keep thinking that way.
