Mitch McConnell On Barack Obama: He Canít Get Anything He Wants. Those Days Are Over
Hot Air ^ | Nov 29, 2012 | Duane Patterson

Posted on 11/29/2012 5:40:47 PM PST by what's up

MM: Well, it’s certainly true that they could get what they have claimed for years they wanted to do by doing nothing. They could get a big Defense cut, and they could get a massive tax increase. But of course, they don’t want to get a tax increase on everybody, only on the top two rates. Also, do they really think it would be good for the economy for all of this to kick in? I tell you, I think the fundamental observation I would make about all of this right now, whether it’s this totally unserious proposal from the Secretary of the Treasury or the attempt by the majority leader to break the rules to change the rules of the Senate, they’re strutting their stuff after the election. They’re still celebrating, and they’re having a hard time noticing that they don’t have a super majority stranglehold on the Senate, and they don’t control the House.

HH: Senator, there are at least nine, maybe ten or more Democrat seats up in 2014. You named some of them – Senator Landrieu, Senator Begich, but also Senator Rockefeller’s seat is up, Senator Hagan, you’ve got Senator Baucus himself, Tim Johnson, Mark Udall, Mark Pryor. Are these Democrats who are…

MM: Alaska, very red state, Democrat in Alaska up…

Ha Ha Ha!! Now I’m laughing out load, Mitch McConnel. You and every other Repub will fold like old, used cards (OK, maybe not EVERY Repub). The Repubs will fold, the Dems will get what they want, and the country will get screwed.

Gee, he's saying the right things but let's see if he means it.

Don't negotiate with OBama. Be a bad ass for once. Who cares if the liberals hate you. We all out here will cover your back. That's the plan. If you lie to us, you will feel the pain at the ballot box.

You got that right. Obama has already gotten what he wanted. This whole fiscal cliff mess was his own invention 15 months ago. Republicans vote to raise the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion with the promise that spending cuts representing 1/15th of the total deficit would ensue. The rise in the debt ceiling was promised to carry us through March 2013. If you look at that bill, you will find both Mitch McConnell and John Boehner voting in the affirmative. You will also find Baraq Obama's signature at the bottom.

The one ace in the hole that the Republicans have is in regard to raising the debt ceiling again. If they hold firm in just that one thing, they win.

Let the Dems throw themselves over the cliff, do not give them any help. Obama dug this hole and they are going to call the Republicans every name in the book, via the “media” but who cares. Let them destroy whatever they want because THEY will own it, not the Republicans!

Hold firm - bwwwwwbaaawwww hahahahahah
Sorry not laughing at you - really.
The Republicans have just become the laps dogs of the democrats........they should just go back to playing golf and having parties and a third actual conservative party should emerge.
I am sick to death of the so called GOPe.
My Mom in the 1950’s before she died sat me down and said watch what is coming and it is communism.
Be aware, it will sneak up on you and people will embrace it.
She died shortly after that, I am glad she never saw it in the USA.
The Republicans have been complicate in the destruction of the USA and its freedom.
Bugger them all.

The current situation is simple.
You want tax increases now?
You MUST also approve significant cuts now. A 3 to 1 ratio at least. Three times the tax increases in REAL spending cuts.No more of this "reduced rate of increases BS.

A reduction in the rate of increases IS NOT A FREAKING CUT!!

“...watch what is coming and it is communism.”

Kruschev said America would fall from within without a shot being fired.

Hell! THEY’RE even calling Boehner an alcoholic lush!!!!

Boehner’s a lush and McConnell’s a fool. They’re good for nothin’. Even the commies know THAT!

My Mother was, I do not want to say a seer but what she made me learn has come to pass.
Although I am sad she was so very young when she died, I am at the same time glad she did not see what she saw come to pass.

You are right .
The big question is , how many of the critics on this thread have actually called McConnell and Boehner and told them to hold the line ? I see a lot of griping and assuming , but I have yet to see any of the critics on this thread say that they have made their voice and support heard ...
I have made my voice heard and I thank them when they do the right thing . It’s important that they know we are watching and supporting them when they do the right thing ...

Who ??

If McConnell had an ounce of self respect he would have resigned weeks ago.

In 2009 he said his #1 job was to make O a one term POTUS.
Well he obviously failed at his #1 job.
He accomplished nothing else this session, and in 2008 he rounded up support for TARP.

Mitch : Have you no shame?
