Default Shep Smith calls out Moscow Mitch McConnell

huh
so he lets mitch's entire speech play almost before chiming in.
well, mich might have been a ballplayer back in the day but since that time he and his wife have found how much more lobbyists and foreign enemies can make them than the piddly little $174 thou we pay him to work in the Senate.

Senate Democrats insist a so-called election security bill be passed by acclamation as if it's something as trivial as naming a post office. When McConnell shockingly refuses the ploy to shut down debate and amendment insisting instead on regular order he is smeared as the traitorous Moscow Mitch. Somehow the refusal to adopt a Politburo style legislative process makes him a Russian agent.

The Moscow Mitch smear is yet another example of the utter intellectual bankruptcy of the Democrats. Claim to be the great defenders of the Republic while insisting totalitarian practices like legislating by forced unanimous consent or appointing a special counsel empowered to act as an unaccountable 4th branch of government be adopted.

it was a procedure done all the time whenever every breathing member of congress has already been apprised of the info.
regardless of that, it needs to be voted on.

The only one being 'propagandized' here appears to be you. And, for the umteenth time, I don't watch Fox News. Therefore, I am not y'all.

You seriously seem to think that all conservatives are red neck, hillbilly Fox News, Rush Limbaugh listeners... you have been corrected over and over again about this false assumption but you keep going back to it.

No, it's not a procedure done "all the time" it is an attempt by Democrats to bypass regular order where the roll is called and every Senator has their vote recorded. Mitch McConnell stood up for the deliberative process and Democrats insist that makes him an agent of Moscow. Democrats are in the minority so let's bypass debate and amendment in favor of mob rule by acclamation.

Perhaps you long for the good old days where Harry Reid overrode the text of a veterans benefits bill with 3,000 pages of Obamacare bill and declared the Federal takeover of 18% of the economy a reconciliation to avoid a filibuster. Oh wait, any corrupt perversion of the process is lauded in passing a Democrat bill.
