The GOP has been in a constant state of resistance to President Obama since before he was elected. According to several Republican Senators, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell laid out a daring plan if President Obama was elected: If he is for it, they are against it.
It is readily apparent to anyone who has paid even the smallest bit of attention to the world around them that the GOP has repeatedly vowed to act as a roadblock to any and all of President Obama’s attempts to accomplish anything, but Mitch McConnell has a proposition for America: Give us supreme power, and we’ll stop obstructing.
McConnell promised that if voters allow him to maintain control of the Senate, a “merciful end” to Congressional gridlock would come about.
“A new Republican majority wouldn’t mean we’d be able to get everything you want from Washington. But it would mean we’d be able to bring the current legislative gridlock to a merciful end. It means we’d be able to start sending bills to the president’s desk again, just as the American people expect,” McConnell said in Saturday’s Republican weekly address.
McConnell said that a GOP majority would mean an improved economy and an attempt to aid the struggling middle class in America, though he failed to mention that the GOP has repeatedly blocked attempts to accomplish those things and more simply because they are upset over President Obama’s Presidency.
“We want to ease the squeeze on working families. We want to improve economic opportunity. We want to make it easier for families to join the middle class. We want to increase career prospects for college graduates,” he said.
Like the good little right-wing terrorist that he is, though, McConnell will be glad to allow the current modus operandi to remain in place. In August, McConnell promised to use “must-pass” legislation to bully the President into capitulating to the GOP’s demands.
