McConnell Says President Obama’s Agenda is Over

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says President Obama’s legislative agenda is over, the AP reports.

In a speech Saturday night to a GOP crowd in his hometown, the Kentucky Republican derided Obama for performing "Clintonian back flips" to portray himself as a moderate, but said it’s yet to be seen whether the new tone is "rhetoric or reality."

McConnell, who in the past has touted his ability to bring federal spending to Kentucky, took a hard line on cutting federal spending. He said the Democratic president’s credentials on spending and debt "are horrible, and he earned it."

Still, McConnell drew cheers from the partisan crowd when he declared: "The legislative agenda of Barack Obama is over."

But McConnell said “that congressional Republicans — who took control of the House and increased their numbers in the Senate following last year’s election — are ‘prepared to do business’ with Obama.”

"And to the extent that the president wants to do what we think is right for America, we won’t say ‘no’ simply because there’s an election coming along," said McConnell.

  1. Senate jr.

    McConnell,only wants to work with the president on his term. He could care less about the american people and what they need. He needs to know that he is only a senator not the president. He would like nothing better than a white president in office.
