Mitch McConnell – “Eager” To Work With President To Deliver ObamaCare, Common Core, and Comprehensive Immigration Reform, ie. Amnesty…

The Republican leadership of the U.S. government is acting French

WASHINGTON DC – Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is “not opposed” to negotiating with President Obama, he said in an interview with CNN that aired Sunday, and expressed eagerness to work with the president to find a middle ground in the coming year.

McConnell and Boehner

“Now he needs to talk to us,” McConnell said. “And that’s good, because when the American people elect a divided government, they’re not saying they don’t want anything done. What they are saying is, they want things done in the political center, things that both sides can agree on. We talk about the things where there may be some agreement.”

Indeed, the White House has begun to indicate that President Obama will take less of a go-it-alone approach in 2015 and attempt to work with and through the Republican-led Congress to achieve his policy goals. Republican leaders, like McConnell, have so far expressed optimism that such collaboration will yield some breakthroughs.[…]

When asked by CNN whether he would work to please restless conservative Republicans or take a more moderate tack, McConnell split the difference.

“Look, we need to do both,” McConnell said. “We need to look for areas where we can make some progress for the country, and obviously to do that we’re going to need some Democratic senators … and we’re going to need the president of the United States.” (read more)

        This lifelong democrat was planning to become a republican, wanting someone to stand up against Obama but apparently won’t find it with the GOP. ObamaCare has screwed millions and people without health care are being fined. Obama provides excuses for black violence and has the white hater Sharpton hanging out at OUR HOUSE. The USA always has domestic and international problems to deal with but at this time, leadership is lacking in all branches of government.

    • I guess I just don’t understand how things work in Washington DC. How is there a election in 2014 and the republicans win but out of 54 republicans, McConnell just automatically is majority leader. I don’t remember him being voted in as majority leader. We need to knock McConnell and Boehner back down to the bottom where they belong.

      I wouldn’t take what McConnell said at face value. What’s he supposed to say? “Democrats are a bunch of commie assholes”?

      Let’s wait and see what he actually DOES. Then it will be appropriate to bitch if the evidence supports it.

      Boehner is a different story. He’s proved himself to be a spineless scum over his speakership. Louie Gohmert is challenging him, and Louie rocks. His win would be a huge longshot, but somebody’s got to do it. Somebody with huevos, and Louie’s got huevos.

          I totally agree but, unfortunately, Boehner will likely be re-elected speaker. But he will go into it again somewhat castrated by less power. This vote is like a ‘no confidence’ vote so it will weaken his speakership and give conservative House members a stronger voice. So, even though Louie likely won’t win, he still will have done us a great service.

          My complaint about those kinds of issues with o-bama are directed at the MSM who deliberately stuck their heads in the sand and didn’t do their jobs as investigative journalists. They are pathetic.

          I’m not a Republican, I’m a conservative, but I ask people to think rationally about such matters and stop lashing out at Republicans for not doing things that are somebody else’s responsibility. The republicans didn’t put o-bama forward; the Democrats did. The Republicans didn’t fail to vet o-bama; the media did.

          As a people, we stood by for decades and let this left-wing takeover happen. We aren’t going to undo it all, if ever, in one term of congress or two-terms in the White House. It has permeated every aspect of life and institution, the most important being the education system, followed by the entire legal system. We could shut this crap education system down tomorrow by taking millions of kids out of public schools. But people would rather have their big homes, jet ski, two or three cars, vacations, ipads, the latest this and that, etc. than to homeschool their kids or pay for a conservative Christian school for them.

          It’s time to look at long-term strategies and stop sweating minutiae such as what Mitch McConnell said to the press to keep them off his back before he even gets started.

        I for one, and damn sick and tired of “taking the high road” and being labeled a crazy tea bagger and this and that by this bunch of commie assholes while we all sit back and watch our country, in so many ways, be flushed right down the john.

          Don’t get tired of them calling you names like “tea-bagger”, “racist”, whatever. IGNORE it and keep plodding away, not down the high road, not down the low road, not down the Turn the Other Cheek road, but the Common Sense road.

          That SOMEONE who needs to come forth and say “Democrats are commie assholes” and the SOMEONE needed to start taking this country back is YOU, and it ain’t going to happen by bitching about Mitch McConnell. Play the hand you’ve been dealt as best as you can or get out of the game, roll up your ante money, go home, and say no more. But if you want in, if you think your opinion and your family’s needs matter, then get in the game by staying on McConnell – harass his ass, send him blistering messages (same for your senators and congressman), whatever you can make a special effort to do at least once a week. But never show the other side where our weaknesses are which is exactly what we’re doing when we “eat our own” publicly. NOTICE that the Democrats win public approval for their positions over and over and over again and they never fight among themselves except privately. It’s called “street smarts”.

      I don’t trust McConnell, either, but it’s not because of what he said in this case. It would be foolish to come out and say we’re going to obliterate o-bama’s policies, make life a living hell for him and do all we can to be uncooperative. How would that sit with the electorate? The media would have a field day. This was a bland, non-committal whitewash designed for media consumption without giving them any red meat. The media is not on our side, as we all know, so what would be the point in feeding the beast?

      I suggest we all put and keep the pressure on him and the rest of the senate Republicans to follow through on conservative changes in legislation and policies enacted by o-bama.

    I am not surprised and will not be surprised by what McConnell does. You think he cares about conservatives? Why, he even bribed black Democrat voters to defeat his conservative Republican opponent. Remember? And it worked. To McConnell, the Republican party and the Republicans who voted for him are a means to an end. Republicans were mere means. The end is for him to have political power in Washington, DC, with all the perks and riches that go with it. But I do not blame him. He is only being himself. He is out for helping himself to as much fat from a bloated Federal government as he possibly can. I blame all those Republicans who voted for him. They have no one to blame but themselves. That is where the fury should be directed. It was predictable what he would do as another of the RINOs the Republicans keep electing.

    The problem is that they are all 100% of Democrats and 90% of Republicans first and foremost politicians.

    The politicians are the modern day ruling class it really is that simple and they will continue to vote themselves better lives regardless of what it does to the country. They believe that they are special, mortal gods if you will and that they deserve everything that is bestowed on them by the tax payers.

    Imo they have no desire to better the country or return it to a Constitutional Republic.

    It is truly disappointing that no one is challenging McConnell. The GOP Senators need to be reacting like the Reps are to Boehner.

    From the article. “Yoho said the electorate “handed us the baton in November to lead the country,” and “it is going to take new leadership willing to stand up” to Obama. He added that if Republicans give Americans new leadership and take the country in a new direction, then more Americans will “rally behind us and rally behind rebuilding America.”
    “I ran for Congress in 2012 because I had had enough,” Yoho said when he announced he would challenge Boehner. “Enough of career politicians, enough of political gamesmanship, and enough of the lack of leadership in Washington. As we enter 2015, we are faced with overwhelming challenges. However, the dawn of 2015 also promises unlimited potential and the opportunity to begin rebuilding America.””

    “And that’s good, because when the American people elect a divided government, they’re not saying they don’t want anything done.”
    More mush-mouthed weak-speak from the Kentucky gelding. What the American people said in the last election was “we reject Barack Obama and everything he stands for, unequivocally, without compromise.”

    “What they are saying is, they want things done in the political center, things that both sides can agree on. We talk about the things where there may be some agreement.”

    Secondly, I am now convinced we have entered the era of “bread and circuses”. It’s over, and the people inside the beltway know it. So now it is just running out the clock, and trying to manage the impact, without causing panic which would lead to somebody blaming them, and suddenly it is the French Revolution all over again. Many of them are lawyers, but they took basic world history.

    I have a friend who is damn near a genius. He was my partner on the department for several years. MENSA bright fellow. He explained the 2008 crash in this way. “There are only three ways to land a plane. One is on the runway, one is in the side of a mountain, one is into the trees in order to try and save a few of the passengers. Right now, they are all aiming at the trees because the runway is closed.”

    This is our future. Once the money runs out- and it will start as a trickle of limitations first- the people who are bred, fed and live on that money will protest then revolt. Like I’ve said many times, it will not be between races or classes or haves vs have nots, it will be between makers and the takers.

    Politicians are human and fear for their lives just like us. So they will do what they must to keep the public sedated and controlled and fed as long as possible. In a sense, they don’t want the FTP violent revolt we see not to replace the “P” for police for “P” for politicians.
