President Bill Clinton criticized Sen. Mitch McConnell on Sunday for his comments at a recent Koch brothers donor retreat, specifically highlighting the Senator’s comment the passage of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law was the “worst day” of his political life.
From the speech:
“When I look back on my life in politics, after all those decades and fights and all those campaigns, if the worst thing that ever happened to me was an attempt to limit black bag campaign contributions. What about 9/11? What about the financial meltdown? What about the farm crisis in the 1970’s and what about the middle of the country’s manufacturing base hollowing out in the 1980’s? And what about in his native Kentucky, where 70% of the coal miners losing their job before the EPA said a word with no way to put them back to work in other ways? How could you possibly say the worst thing that happened to you was not being able to black bag unlimited amounts of money. in politics when all of these things have happened to Americans?
“For almost all Kentuckians, the free and open system championed by their senior senator seems closed, corrupt and corrosive to the democratic process.”
That’s not how it should be.
