“As long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is unattainable”

Mitch McConnell, expressing the kind of pessimism many of us in this country are feeling:

Mr. McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican, said he had gone into negotiations in good faith over how to formulate a deficit-reduction package to accompany an increase in the statutory borrowing limit.

The Treasury has said the limit must be raised by Aug. 2 to avoid the potential of a U.S. default on its debts, while Mr. Obama has said he wants a deal by July 22.

After the latest negotiations, led by Mr. Obama, Mr. McConnell said he concluded that the administration had “expressed a fundamental unwillingness” to agree to significant spending cuts.

“But after years of discussions and months of negotiations, I have little question that as long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is unattainable,” Mr. McConnell said in a Senate floor speech.

There’s much that is unattainable with the mindset represented by this President holding sway over Americans.  Much.  Many of us have believed this for a very long time… and have been dismissed as radicals, as racists, as wingnuts.  But the truth is finally making a comeback.

The sooner the country elects someone different, the better the country will be.

    Do you think, we were born yesterday? McConnell, is your authority? Why don´t you say the fair and impartial McConnell, who has absolutely no vested interest in the next Congressional or Presidential election.
    Mitch McConnell October, 2010: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

      Not an authority.. Facts are what they are. The fact that McConnell states a fact makes it no less true.

      • 2+2=4, doesn’t matter whether a Dem or Repub says so.  We’re broke, deep in debt, and the only solution the Beltway Bastards could come up with was spend more money.  Those days are over – we can’t afford such thinking any more.

    914 is correct.  It matters not whether McConnell has an (R) or (D) behind his name, his statement is accurate.  Obama will be a drag on the future of this country as long as he is president.  People worry about “tea baggers” taking over the Republican Party. That is nothing compared to the effect the Maxists have had on the Democrats.  Don’t believe me? Read the speeches given by John F Kennedy on government spending and taxing business.  It is a far. far cry from what Obama espouses. And, Steve, I am guessing you would feel our country would have benefited from only 4 years of George W Bush compared to 8.  Why do you always hold us to a higher standard of “fair and impartial” than you seem to be willing to hold yourself?

    I was worried about McConnell for awhile, but I guess somebody gave him a shot of testosterone and he’s grown a pair.  Gawd I live my Kentucky Senators!

  • I think that President Obama has put himself in a “box.”  He says he wants a “deal” to raise the debt limit or he will need to cut social security checks and military pay.  Now he gets to learn why businessmen put so much emphasis on someone’s ability to “meet a payroll.”  OK, Mr. Obama, the bank wants to cut off your line of credit and your employees (military) would like to be paid.  Let’s see how you handle the situation.  Maybe you can take the criticism that the ” Commander in Chief would rather pay the Red Chinese than his own troops.”

    Strike my comment about McConnell, he shot his load and is wimping out as I type…giving Obama a free pass to raise the debt limit without any consequences.
