Why Is The Senate Broken ?
from Think Progress...
"... In an interview with the National Journal’s Major Garrett, McConnell candidly acknowledged that he feels his “single most important job is to defeat President Obama in 2012":
MCCONNELL: We need to be honest with the public. This election is about them, not us. And we need to treat this election as the first step in retaking the government. We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”
NATIONAL JOURNAL: What’s the job?
MCCONNELL: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president. "
This is pathetic. McConnell is an ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE therefore his DUTY is to conduct business in the Senate. The politics and the party should not take president and that might be possible if there is ethical representation.
Sadly there isn't.
