Excessive Expectations

Excessive Expectations

I’d love to say that I’m surprised that Mitch McConnell is blaming President Trump for McConnell’s failures.

But I’m not.

Honestly? After eight years, I expected nothing less of him.

The other day, while speaking at the Florence Rotary Club in Kentucky, Mitch had this to say [Hat tip The Hill]:

Now our new president has of course not been in this line of work before. And I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. And so, part of the reason I think people feel like we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality and the complexity of legislature may not have been fully understood.

Golly, Mitch. If President Trump and everyone who voted for him have excessive expectations, maybe it’s because you oversold what you planned to do.

In other words, you raised our expectations.


You told us, “Give us the House!”

And we did.

Then you told us, “Give us the Senate!”

And we did.

But when you still wouldn’t get things done, you told us, “Once we have the White House, we’ll be able to repeal Obamacare.”

So we gave you the White House.

And now you’re telling us we have excessive expectations?

President Trump is right.

Is expecting Senate Republicans to have a bill they all can agree on after seven damn years of promising to repeal Obamacare really an excessive expectation?

Seven years is too quick?

Really, Mitch?

McConnell has gotten very comfortable where he is. And he’s happy to surround himself with the Senate’s arcane rules and fuss over procedures while Americans are struggling under the weight of the unsustainable law he promised for the last seven years to repeal.

He’s become so complacent cloistered in his position that Mitch cannot comprehend the sense of urgency we all feel out here in the Real World.

Because he no longer lives in the Real World.

He’s shut himself away – indifferent to us.

At this point, the only expectation we have is the Republicans keep their promises.

And apparently even that is too excessive.

    So, tell me why DJT endorsed No Chin Mitch’s candidate in Alabama? I am freakin’ furious over this! I support our President, but this really pissed me off. Not only is The Turtle involved in this, but that fat dough boy Karl Rove is involved AND the guy who was running Ted Cruz’s campaign.

    What the hell is going on???

    What got me was the fact that in the clip I saw of Mitch’s address to the Rotary I didn’t hear any booing nor did I see anyone throwing tomatoes at him. It’s as if the people of Kentucky have become hypnotized by his numbing drone.

    After seven years, Republicans should have had a bill ready, at least in draft form. But allowing that perhaps they didn’t think Trump could win the presidency, between election day and inauguration day, they should have drafted a bill that could have been voted on the first day the new congress held session and presented to Trump before the end of January.

    That would have shown the Democrats, and the electorate, that the Republicans were ready to govern.
