VIDEO-- Mitch McConnell: "They want to take me out."


mitch mcconnell make obama one term president

"This is not Bill Clinton. There's no indication [Obama's] moving to the political center. ... Obviously he wasn't my first choice, but he won. And I'm prepared to do things that I think are correct for the country, but it's going to require the president to move to the middle."

"Now, the reason you're here today is cause they want to take me out. This is the only race, as I indicated, in the country with any national significance. And that's why we're up and running this far in advance."

I wouldn't want to take Mitch McConnell out. No. Way. Well, maybe if he offered to pay for the meal and a really good wine, but ... Wait, hang on, I'm hearing something come through my imaginary ear piece. What's that? He's not talking about that kind of taking out?

Ohhh, got it. McConnell was referring to primary challenges, and a Democratic one, in an attempt to boot him out in the coming elections. My bad.

McConnell said as much at a gathering of about 60 supporters at his headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. This was awfully amusing considering how clear he made his own intentions to take President Obama out:

Via The Hill:

And he balked at the idea of deep rifts in the Republican Party, charging that Democrats have just as many differences, but because "the Democratic Senate hadn't done anything," those differences have not yet been revealed.

Oh, there are rifts, Mitch. Trust us.

    Here's the same clip with his examples pasted in. Enjoy!

  • When Elected officials go against the will of the people to serve their own interests. "The American Electorate has a way of shutting that whole thing down"
    McConnell has been nothing but a roadblock to progress, delebrately holding back our economy in order to try to make the presidend look bad, He failed, but continues to try to obstruct every bill which would help this country move out of this severe recession. Ditch Mitch in 2014! We need representatives who will truly place "Country First", not just print it on a bumper sticker and then work in the opposite direction for partisan politics only. This man has no soul, and I for one wish to know how he amassed 29 million dollars on a Senators salary.

  • "This is the only race, as I indicated, in the country with any national significance."

    The ONLY one, Mitch?

    Um, there ARE 99 other US Senators besides yourself . . . self-important, much?
