Mitch McConnell Should Not Be Trusted

Posted by Teresa at 10:01 PM
If what Karl Rove says about Mitch McConnell is true in
his book, Courage and Consequence, Sen. McConnell should
not be any leadership position in the Republican Party.
Rove writes on page 475:
Nervous Republicans members of Congress asked me
if the president would consider a troop withdrawal to
save the 2006 elections. The Republican leader in
the Senate, Mitch McConnell, went so far as to ask the
president directly, and then went public with his
nervousness about his party's midterm prospects.
The president found this offensive.
So it must have been McConnell who Bush was referring to
when he was quoted as saying this in a 2008 article:

Reviewing his decision to implement the surge, Bush
recalled the political pressures on him to retreat: “It
was in this room that a prominent member of my
political party said, ‘You must remove troops from Iraq
because it could cost us elections if you don’t,’” the
president said, gesturing around the Oval Office. “And
it was in this room I looked at him and said, ‘You
must not understand George W. Bush.’”
If this is true, it is disgraceful.
