McConnell declines to endorse Boehner plan



McConnell declines to endorse Boehner plan
By Alexander Bolton - 12/04/12 02:55 PM ET


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Tuesday declined to endorse a proposal issued the day before from Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) that would raise revenue by $800 billion.

McConnell kept his distance from a proposal that received a hail of criticism from conservatives, including Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), a prominent voice in the Senate GOP conference.

Instead, McConnell praised Boehner for showing leadership and scolded the president for not taking a more active role.

I have no particular observation other than that I commend the House Republican leadership for trying to move the process along and getting to a point where I hope we can have a real discussion, McConnell told reporters after the weekly Republican lunch.

McConnell said behind-the-scenes talks between Boehner and senior White House officials have stalled.

2. Once an obstructionist always an obstructionist



Who the fuck is McConnell to "scold the President" for doing exactly what he said
he was going to do as he was running for re-election?
