Burned: McConnell Kicks Obama’s BehindPosted: July 27, 2011
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell delivers a devastating speech on the floor of the Senate calling out Obama for threatening to veto the Boehner plan should it make it to his desk. Well, actually, Obama isn’t even willing to make the threat himself and is instead hiding behind the skirts of some unnamed advisers. This is nothing but a completely transparent attempt on Obama’s part to shift any blame for a veto to someone other than himself should it actually come to that.
But McConnell correctly calls Obama out as being willing to veto the country into default, an action that he himself has described as having devastating consequences for not only the U.S. but the entire world, all for purely partisan political purposes. So Obama apparently cares more about his own chances for re-election than he does for the good of the country. Being a Liberal, I am not surprised.
