Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell:
The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president. Oh My God He Said This
- Defeating Obama > creating employment opportunities
- Defeating Obama > reducing the deficit
- Defeating Obama > resolving the Iraq and Afghanistan wars
- Defeating Obama > strengthening education
- Defeating Obama > EVERYTHING related to governing
