Does anybody remember that Mitch McConnell was one of the biggest cheerleaders for the very bailout bill that he criticizes Matt Bevin for having his company support?

Let's recall:
The two Senate leaders, Senators Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada and the majority leader, and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, strongly urged their colleagues to approve the plan despite the political risk given public resentment.

If this is McConnell's only line of attack, he is a hypocrite.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

Bevin's mistake is in messaging.  As an investment fund manager he had a fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interest of his investors.  As a senator, he would be acting as an agent for the state's citizens.  It would be perfectly sensible for him to support the bailout in one role but not the other.  It's akin to attacking an attorney for a position he took while representing a client.  The problem for Bevin is that he tried to hide or obscure what he did rather than simply attack the accusation head on.
