    McConnell: No real deficit deal until Obama is gone - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    The Senate's top Republican said Tuesday that he did not see a way for Republicans and Democrats to come to agreement on meaningful deficit reduction as long as President Obama remains in office.

    Republicans are looking to cut trillions of dollars in federal spending, while Democrats are pushing for a more "balanced approach," which would include both spending cuts and higher revenue to the government.

    -----------------

    Wow, I thought when Republicans blackmailed the president into extending the Bush tax cuts by telling him they would cut off unemployment for millions of Americans was stepping "way over" the line.

    But this? Blackmailing the entire country? Threatening the American people with economic collapse simply to get the black guy out of the WHITE House?

    The number of government workers is 500,000 less than when Obama took office. We went from losing 800,000 jobs a month to positive job growth for 15 straight months. The DOW has gone up over 6,000 points. Obama got Bin Laden.

    So what has Obama done that's so bad? Besides being "black"? And when you say things like "Colonial Kenyan Mau Mau", there is no doubt it's all about race. No doubt at all.

    I think this shows the Republican's "True Colors".

    Wow, sounds good to me... Maybe the GOP really wants to do meaningful cuts, that would be a nice change.

    President Obama currently has medicaid, medicare, and social security cuts on the table. Meanwhile, the GOP won't even close tax loopholes or cut the defense budget. And you think they want to do meaningful cuts? :rofl:

    Wow... simply sounds like this guy is saying what many of us have been saying all along... huge reductions in spending are absolutely needed... and that with a Prez like this in charge, it is highly unlikely to have such things... and that until he is gone, or some miraculous yet highly improbable change would happen in his leadership style would happen, it is doubtful that such necessary cuts would happen

    And of course, the idiot OP trying to play the race card in this... completely predictable

    How many ways can the Republicans say Fuck You America, and still remain in Congress.

    That McConnell just made enough cannon fodder to bury the RNC. LMAO!!

    But it's not only that.

    McConnell has stated he wants Obama to be a one term President..and now has stated that he won't do a deal until Obama is out of office.

    Sounds like he his dictating who the American people should elect next time around.

    That's not his place.

    Has it ever occurred to you dingbat lieberals that McConnel might have a little more information on the subject than you have? I bet he does. People don't say shit like that unless they have a good reason. He's smart enough to know he'll have to back it up. I know I know dimwits just don't like hearing the truth and the truth is obiedoodle promised during his campaign that

    Americans would pay more for gasoline, more for coal, and more for their groceries and that he intended to redistribute the wealth. I'm with McConnell there will be no agreement til obiedoodle is gone.

    No Democratic politician even came close to saying anything so ridiculous and absurd about Bush. Either of them.
