Was the credit rating of the United States the hostage you ransomed, Mitch McConnell?

And for what? The wealthiest 1%? To make them wealthier?

“I think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting. Most of us didn’t think that. What we did learn is this — it’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming. And it focuses the Congress on something that must be done.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, on the GOP. Don’t call them terrorists though. [WP via Political Wire]

“Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term.” — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, speaking at the Heritage Foundation in 2010 (video above)

From now until the 2012 election, not one American should forget either of these statements.
