Blitzer Cuts Off CNN Interview After McConnell Lies About Ignoring The Petraeus Report

Wolf Blitzer cut off his interview with Mitch McConnell on CNN's Late Edition today after McConnell lied about listening to the advice of the generals on the ground. The Louisville liberal McConnell made claims about other Senators pledging to ignore the report of General Petraeus, when it was in fact McConnell himself who has made such pledges in the past week:
McConnell said he doesn't know what Petraeus will say in September..."I don't know what's going to happen in September," he said. But if there's a stampede by Senate Republicans defecting on Iraq, he said, "No, I'm not going to lead it."
Its clear that the Republican Party needs leadership on Iraq since McConnell has again been MIA over the Iraq debate. Not only does Kentucky's Republican Party need Larry Forgy, but the national GOP does as well.
