The ghoulish response from this audience sent chills up my spine, but I guess it didn't bother Gregory too much because he certainly didn't find it important to follow up on McConnell's "I'm too busy obstructing the President's plans so he won't be reelected, to bother with rebuking my own party's blood lust reactions. Gregory asked McConnell for his response to the audience:
GREGORY: Does the audience response in both cases trouble you as a Republican?
This makes me wonder how this so called "liberal" media would react to any Democrat who completely avoided answering for a Progressive audience hooten and holleren over an answer to a question dealing with abortion. Democrats would never hear the end of it.MCCONNELL: Look, we have a lot of people running for president. There are going to be a lot of debates, a lot of things said, a lot of audience reactions. I don't have any particular reaction to what's going on in Republican's campaign for president right now. I've got a big job to do trying to help turn this country around and working with a president who I believe has been doing all of the wrong things.
