Seems Kevin McCarthy’s had a change of heart,
Claiming his defund Ukraine comment was a brain fart.
And while Republican chicken hawks
Love to strut, bluster and squawk,
They still prefer to support wars that they start.
“The idea that the party is now no longer going to support the Ukrainian people. For somebody who has the picture of Ronald Reagan on his wall in his office in the Capitol, the notion that now Kevin McCarthy is going to make himself the leader of the pro-Putin wing of my party is just a stunning thing. … It’s dangerous. He knows better. But the fact that he’s willing to go down the path of suggesting that America will no longer stand for freedom, I think tells you he’s willing to sacrifice everything for his own political gain.”
— Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) branded Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) leader of the “pro-Putin” wing of the GOP after he suggested cutting U.S. funding of Ukraine’s war effort, Politico reports.
While in Ukraine there’s still fightin’ and shootin’,
A midterm win’s what the GOP is computin’.
If they take back the Congress,
When it comes to the Ukraine mess,
The Republicans will hand a win to Vlad Putin.
“Ukrainian officials have expressed ‘shock’ over Republican suggestions that future assistance for Kyiv could be limited if the party wins the House of Representatives in November’s US midterm elections, calling on Washington to continue providing bipartisan support.”
“I think he is a rational actor who has miscalculated significantly.”
— President Biden told CNN that he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin badly misjudged his ability to invade Ukraine and suppress its people.
Vladimir Putin’s call-up is an act of desperation,
And Russian dudes are on the move — but not on vacation.
Going to Ukraine to get your ass shot off
Is about as funny as Yakov Smirnoff,
And now babushkas are putting the “mob” back in “mobilization.”
