Byron York, an outstanding reporter who I read religiously, has an article at the Washington Examiner making the case that Mitch McConnell did not actually surrender in the health care debate.I’d like to first note that it says something that McConnell had to run out and try to get his side of the story out so quickly. He must realize how much damage was done to him yesterday. Finally, finally people are starting to realize just how bad a leader he has been on a host of issues lately.Second, Quin Hillyer has a rebuttal to Byron York’s article that I think you should consider a must read.
As a supposed tactical victory for McConnell, this is like Napoleon getting off of Elba and thinking he would return to glory. Anybody who knows history knows what happened to Napoleon next.
