Conservative Kentucky Blogs Hammer Mitch McConnell Over Immigration And Gas Prices

Conservative radio show host Leland Conway took Mitch McConnell to the task over immigration yesterday on the Conservative Edge, one of the Commonwealth's leading Republican blogs:
Of our two Republican Senators, I favor Jim Bunning's position on immigration to McConnell's. I understand that Mitch is probably playing a Washington political power game - what's new?

My point is, forget a new immigration bill, make an appropriations bill and protect America first.

Mitch McConnell needs to quit playing politics and start pushing REAL immigration reform.
Also, Kentucky Progress noted that McConnell is playing partisan political games with gas prices:

Sen. Mitch McConnell today messes up his own call for expanding domestic petroleum production by playing a partisan political game that out-lived its usefulness the first time it was used:

Good grief. Republicans aren't going to win on gas prices any time soon because too many people think the government can lower prices by making up more price gouging laws.
