In a speech on the Senate floor, Sen. Mitch McConnell highlighted the Democrats’ hatred for President Trump while highlighting the Democrats’ limited patriotism for this nation. Sen. McConnell exposed them when he said “The Senate is supposed to be the chamber where overheated partisan passions give way to sober judgment. Can we not at least wait until we know the facts? Can we not maintain a shred, just a shred, of national unity for five minutes before deepening the partisan trenches?” Additionally, Sen. McConnell asked “Must Democrats’ distaste for this president dominate every thought they express and every decision they make? Is that really the seriousness that this situation deserves?”

When statesmen/patriots like Hubert Humphrey and Daniel Patrick Moynihan roamed the Senate, patriotism was in overabundance. Now that partisans like Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer lead the Democrats, patriotism is essentially missing from the Senate. Since President Trump ordered the airstrike on Soleimani, Democrats have questioned whether we’re safer now than before the airstrike.

If Democrats are serious in asking that question, then Democrats should never get their hands on the levers of power. The answer to the Democrats’ foolish question is this: yes, we’re infinitely better off today than we were a week ago. Soleimani wasn’t just some rank-and-file general. Soleimani was Iran’s guy that established Iran’s proxies that spread Iran’s reach far beyond Iran’s borders. Soleimani was Iran’s guy who put in place the training for the Houthis, Hezbollah, Hamas and other proxies.

Put into a sports analogy, taking Soleimani out is like taking Tom Brady in his prime off the field. This wasn’t like losing the backup offensive lineman on the Cincinnati Bengals. As for whether Iran retaliates, that’s likely but that shouldn’t have stopped the military from taking him out. The Department of Homeland Security should (and likely is) beefing up our defenses against cyberattacks. The Department of Defense is already shipping in reinforcements for our military bases around the world. The State Department is likely hiring additional FSOs (Foreign Security Officers) to protect our diplomats. (Unlike the Obama administration, the Trump administration puts a high priority on protecting diplomats.)

“My Democratic colleagues should not plow away at American unity in some bizarre, intramural competition to see who dislikes the president more,” he said. “They should not disdain our Constitution by rushing through a purely partisan impeachment process and then toying around with it. Governing is serious business.”

Thus far, I haven’t seen anything that would indicate that Democrats are serious about governing according to the will of the people. Unfortunately, I’ve seen tons of proof that Democrats are willing to govern according to their far-left ideology.
