McConnell under fire for ‘gosh-darn’ comments


McConnell under fire for ‘gosh-darn’ comments.

On the audio, McConnell said that if he’s elected Senate majority leader, the world’s greatest deliberative body won’t even talk about issues like raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits and refinancing student loan debt.

“We’re not going to be debating all of these gosh-darn proposals,” he said during the discussion. “These people believe in all the wrong things.”

McConnell also said at the event that the day President George W. Bush signed the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform act into law “was the worst day of my political life.”

What some see as “deafening silence” others call under reporting, esp. by American journalists and networks.

To wit (to directly repudiate the claim): 

“The top Islamic authority in Egypt launched an Internet-based campaign Sunday challenging an extremist group in Syria and Iraq by saying it should not be called an “Islamic State.”

The campaign by the Dar El-Ifta, the top authority that advises Muslims on spiritual and life issues, adds to the war of words by Muslim leaders across the world targeting the Islamic State group, which controls wide swaths of Iraq and Syria. Its violent attacks, including mass shootings, destroying shrines, targeting minorities and beheadings including American journalist James Foley, have shocked Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

The Grand Mufti of Egypt, Shawki Allam, previously said the extremists violate all Islamic principles and laws and described the group as a danger to Islam as a whole.”
