Everything you ever thought about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is wrong. He really is a fighter after all.

At a recent fundraiser with 300 K street donors, as reported by Politico, Mitch McConnell was in a combative mood. According to one attendee, he was “in fighting mode.”

No, he was not in a fighting mode against Obama and the Democrats. As he spoke at a K street retreat, the relaxation of his comfort zone kicked in and he rallied the establishment faithful against conservatives:

Mitch McConnell isn’t going to have another government shutdown on his watch.

The Kentucky Republican stood up over the weekend and said he wanted to address the “elephant in the room” at a fundraising retreat in Sea Island, Ga. Speaking before roughly 300 K Streeters and big donors, McConnell said Republicans will not come close to defaulting on the nation’s debts or shutting down the government early next year when stop-gap government funding and the debt ceiling are slated to be voted on again.

His remarks echoed similar comments he made following the shutdown that it was “not conservative policy” and that he always believed “this strategy could not and would not work.”

“He’s in fighting mode,” said one attendee of McConnell. “He didn’t get into specifics about what they are doing and how they are going to do it, but McConnell and (Texas Sen. John) Cornyn were particularly forceful.”

The attendee said McConnell “said everything that needed to be said” to help tamp down growing concern among bundlers and donors over how the GOP continues to be paralyzed by anti-establishment members like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah). Neither lawmaker attended the event.

Ahhh Establishment Republicans and those that support them--

Alot like a democrat really.

fighting mood to save his job. Which is all he willing to fight for. Rand paul needs to campaign against him. McConnell is a big part of the problem. He is pretty old, so I suppose he may die in office and we can be rid of him that way.

These guys forget what a Republic really means. May we remind these gentlemen exactly what it means at the ballot box.

Its probably what's in his FBI file that keeps him in line. Rumors swirl around him...

Wait, you mean the "elephant" was not the kick back he got for caving on the debt ceiling?

I would love to demonstrate to McConnell how his strategy would work in sales: tell your best customers to fuck off whenever they buy something and see how well you do.

Why are these folks so determined to give away another safe GOP seat to another hard-left socialist?

Mitch McConnell isn't a "real conservative?" what B.S.

The shut-down strategy hasn't worked a single time it's been tried over the past 25 years. It didn't work when Gingrich was speaker, it didn't work last month for Boehner.

Same. Funny how these good ole boys only seem to get fired up with a little passion when challenged by members in their own party. Shame they don't do the same when it comes to the Democrats.

Spot on; And people still don't recognize it because of it being overshadowed by being a "safe seat." The only thing that is safe with McConnell are Obama's policies...

There shouldn't be any such thing as a "safe seat" based on the last several years.

So people like Cruz who make a stand based on principle paralyze the party?

If principle can paralyze a party, then that party has no principles.

Ok. Nothing new from this asshole. However, Let's (anybody with a brain who wants to get back to something resembling what the founders intended) agree

to primary these fuckers as hard as possible. But, if we can't take them out in the primary, we must still return their worthless ass to congress rather than

letting a straight-up commie, i.e., democrat take the seat. And regardless of whether or not the RINO mends his ways we will primary the fucker next tine

too.

Exactly where do you get that he is set on fighting the GOP base from that article? Unless the base wants to be stupid and shutdown the government while taking another negative hit with the public, nothing Mitch said is fighting the base. Mitch just saw the Republican's get their asses handed to them by shutting down the government. His statement makes it clear that it won't happen again because it is a losing strategy with the public. There are other ways to fight that battle without shutting down the government.

I'm not fan of Mitch, just read the Kentucky forum, but if you are going to attack him at least attack him based on real issues. What exactly where is his "fighting words" because I'm not seeing it.

Sounds like more and more establishment republicans are reaching out to the money, instead of the people, to get re-elected. The PEOPLE need to rise above this and vote correctly to remove these establishment folks.
