Priorities, Priorities

Mitch McConnell: Top Priority, Make Obama a One Term President – YouTube.

As readers of these pages will attest, the Bull Moose is no particular fan of our current president. Nonetheless, it is distressing to hear the leader of any major party declare that the Party’s top legislative priority is political, rather than governing.

Though it will likely come as a shock to our distinguished Solons, we elect them not so that their first and second priorities are personal reelection and promulgation of party goals. We elect them so their first goals are the governance of the nation.

McConnell has his priorities out of whack, as does any politician who has become so focused on the opposition that the opposition is the target rather the improvement of the country and the prosperity of its citizens.
