“Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell says federal spending and the country’s debt will dominate the congressional agenda for the next three months,” the AP reports. [Click to 10:40 on the video above.] “The debate about potential gun legislation in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting will take a back seat.” A week is a long time in politics. Three months is an eternity. But saying something doesn’t make it so. Stopping civilian disarmament may require some major league Senatorial lip service as well as active opposition. Is McConnell ready to rumble? “The Kentucky lawmaker tells ABC’s ‘This Week’ that lawmakers will wait to see what an Obama administration review led by Vice President Joe Biden might propose. McConnell says Congress will need to study any recommendations and then see what’s appropriate to do. But he says that over the coming months, nothing much beyond the country’s finances will occupy the attention of Congress.” Thank God for gridlock. OK, the Founding Fathers. You know what I mean.
