Mitch McConnell speaks to state GOP dinner

Sen. Mitch McConnell said he thought the decade-long Republican majority in the Kentucky state Senate was probably the most important achievement for the GOP ever in Kentucky.

Mentioned Joe Biden's swine flu gaffe and informed the audience that the day after telling everyone to stay off planes and trains, Biden got on the train and went home to Delaware.

"Proving that not even Joe Biden listens to Joe Biden," McConnell said.

"The President campaigned as a centrist and it was my hope that he would govern as a centrist, but so far it hasn't worked out that way."

"We're spending $100 million a day in interest on the stimulus package."

Sen. McConnell spoke against the idea of closing Guantanamo Bay. He then spoke about the Supreme Court vacancy, saying that the upcoming process will be "fascinating."

McConnell only mentioned Bunning to agree with him about the stimulus package.
