Senator McConnell made his remarks at a museum dedicated to the two term president in Simi Valley California.reagan-evacuation-plan.jpg

Mitch seemed to be having a bad day:

“Reagan’s biographer, Lou Cannon, liked to say that a lot of Ronald Reagan’s success lay in the fact that he spoke about the future in the accents of the past. And if I were to offer an assessment of the new Majority in Congress, I would say something similar. I would say their ultimate undoing will be the fact that they speak about the past in the accents of the future. New problems, failed solutions.”

How do you speak of the new problems of the past with future accents?
