Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch Mc Connell on FNS … Discussing KSM Trial in NYC, Obamacare and Tax Payer Paid for Abortions


Republican Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and had many things to say regarding the Obama policies on trying Khalid Sheik Mohammed in NYC, GITMO prisoners, Obamacare in the Senate and having tax payers pay for abortion. McConnell stated that the Senate will not rush the health care bill.

The following are some Mitch McConnell comments from Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace: (full transcript HERE)

With regards to trying KSM in a civilian court in NYC rather than a military tribunal:

MCCONNELL: Unfortunately, we had that very vote on the Lieberman- Lindsey Graham amendment just a week ago, and 54 Democrats voted opposed, frankly, having the trials down in Guantanamo. So it looks to me like the administration is going to do this. They seem to be sort of hell-bent to do it.

I agree with the family of Daniel Pearl. You know, KSM murdered their son. And they said, “Why in the world would we want to give him the show trial that he desires?”

McConnell discusses bring GITMO prisoners to the United States as the Obama Admin has discussed. Mc Connell mentions that this might be an important issue for the people of Illinois to think about in the up coming 2010 Senate election.

MCCONNELL: Well, the Senate went on record on that issue a couple of years ago 94-3 against bringing these people to the United States.

Regarding the vote on Obamacare, McConnell states that Senators should have as much time to read the bill as Harry Reid has had it on his desk.

We know it’s been in Harry Reid’s office for six weeks and the other 99 senators have not seen it. I think we ought to at least have as much time for the other 99 senators and all of the American people to take a look at this bill as Majority Leader Reid has had.

The only way to guarantee that for sure would be to delay the process to allow everyone to fully understand what’s in the bill.

And then if there are 60 senators who want to go to this bill, even though the administration’s own actuary, somebody who works in the administration, the Department of Health and Human Services, has said that it will drive the cost of health care up and that it will hurt seniors — if they still want to go to it, then we’ll have the debate.

Finally, on federally tax paid for abortions … As Obama looks to strip abortion language from health care reform bill.

MCCONNELL: Well, we don’t know what will be in the bill that Senator Reid produces. And I’m not going to predict the outcome of this.

What I am going to say once again is that we know where the American public is. They’re overwhelmingly opposed to using tax funds, either directly or indirectly, to pay for abortions. Whether the Senate will reflect American public opinion on that or not, we’ll have to see.

      obama and his boyfriend holder will go to great lengths to appease any terorist or muslim.
      this is Un American and should be dealt with by impeachment immediately along with all democratic congress, house, and senate for treason against our country.

      Haha – check out the admitted racist #1 showing how Un-American he is. Of course #1 is too idiotic to know it.

      So let me get this straight…According to you extremist repubs, if someone or some group attacks us, we should hide? We should do away with rule of law and everything our country was founded on? Talk about chickensh%t.
      What a bunch of unpatriotic hide under the bed cowards you are. REAL Americans want to see these attackers brought to trial under the American justice system in America.

      I guess a show of American strength, confidence, and rule of law sends wingnuts scurrying back under their rocks like the cowards they are.

      SM: Once again Yoyo troll needs to buy a vowel and a clue.

      Who’s hiding … we have had military tribunals forever. Um, like the Nuremberg trials.

      This will be nothing more than a 24-7 propaganda piece for terrorists. Just what they wanted.

      Obama could care less about justice, this is about butting the CIA, water boarding and GWB on trial. He has to in order to deflect attention from his terrible Presidency.

      Terrorist are not common criminals, they committed acts of was against the United States.

      Haha – That’s your response? Lol.

      “This will be nothing more than a 24-7 propaganda piece for terrorists.” You actually believe a Federal Judge is going to let KSM stand up whenever he wants and start lecturing about the infidels? Your reasoning is just right wing hate based in no fact at all (shocker!!).

      I guess, acccording to you, the proper response when the enemy’s general is securely in your custody is to continue cowering in fear before him.

      Now go curl up in the corner in the fetal position with the constitution crumpled up next to you.

      Too funny a response from the spineless unamerican right.

      yoyo:the one crying and whining racism (like your boy jessie jump)all the time is usually the most racist.

      I would like to know the status of the Estate Tax that will go into effect on January 1, 2011. Please tell me if there any proposed laws that will change the Estate Taxes, where we can keep the rate as it is today.

      Thank you,

      Cathy Adams
