Sen. Mitch McConnell Votes To Continue War In Iraq

The 34 percent of Kentuckians who believe Mitch McConnell represents their view on the war in Iraq may be pleased. Unfortunately, I think the rest of the Bluegrass state may agree with this statement in the New York Times:

Groups aligned with the Democrats plan to capitalize on the connection between the veto and the “mission accomplished” anniversary. Americans United for Change has produced a television commercial that replays scenes of Mr. Bush on the carrier and says: “He was wrong then. And he’s wrong now. It’s the will of one nation versus the stubbornness of one man.”

Well, they may want to change that line to the stubbornness of two men, if you want to consider the efforts of George W Bush’s lapdog Mitch McConnell to continue the war in Iraq. Today, Sen. Mitch McConnell had a chance to fund our troops in Iraq and end the war, and he voted against doing both.
