Kevin McCarthy.

The moment his name came up for Republican leader in the House, I was suspicious. His “teamwork”, we will call it, with Paul Ryan is one major reason why.

Remember Paul Ryan kept telling the president that he didn’t have the votes for the wall, and when it came down to it… he had more than enough votes… Overwhelming numbers.

The only reason Ryan didn’t want to bring it to the floor because he doesn’t believe in it.

I have long since come to believe that McCarthy has the same problem, the same lack of belief in actually being conservative.

Now, before you tell me this, I will say that Kevin McCarthy has in the past come out repeatedly for border security. Including, the wall. Thing is, so did Chuck Schumer.

Now, long time readers to this website will know that we have been calling for a long time for a complete change of GOP leadership. We have been saying that the American people, and particularly the GOP rank-and-file has longed for such a change, believing that there is a huge disconnect between the GOP leadership and the GOP rank-and-file.

I have to tell you in all honesty that it’s going to take some serious convincing for me personally to believe that Kevin McCarthy doesn’t suffer from that disconnect, and is the wrong choice for minority leader in the House.
