Obama Is Doing Everything Right As McConnell Is “Disturbed” By The President’s Actions

Judging from Mitch McConnell’s reaction, President Obama is pushing the right post-election buttons. The incoming Senate Majority Leader described himself as disturbed by the path that Obama is on.

Sen. McConnell (R-KY) warned Obama not to issue his immigration executive order, “I’ve been very disturbed about the way the president has proceeded in the wake of the election… I had maybe naively hoped the president would look at the results of the election and decide to come to the political center and do some business with us. I still hope he does at some point, but the early signs are not good.”

President Obama spent the last six years of his presidency in the center waiting for Republicans to join him. They repeatedly refused to compromise. McConnell doesn’t want the president to meet him in the middle. He wants Obama to move to the right and give the congressional Republicans what they want.

McConnell’s comments are a sign that President Obama is doing the right thing for the country by not doing what the Republicans want. After a sobering Election Night defeat, the president appears to be taking his party back and leading them into the future. Mitch McConnell isn’t only going to have deal with President Obama, but also a feisty and more liberal Democratic Senate minority.

Sen. McConnell salted the earth with his constant obstruction, so he should not be surprised at the inability to grow crops now that he is in charge of planting the seeds. The shoe is on the other foot, and Democrats aren’t going to give Mitch McConnell anything.

Obama is making all the right moves, and ever so slowly it is starting to dawn on Republicans that their control of Congress is going to be nothing like they expected. Mitch McConnell is disturbed today. If Democrats do their jobs correctly, he will be discouraged soon, and displaced in 2016.

  1. You nailed it. You do indeed reap what you sow.
    Is there anyone who thinks the republicans are correctly informed enough to handle any issue? Any issue at all? They are children… it is the adults who will lead.

  2. Looks like it turns out that President Obama is the smartest man in the room. F**K McConnell and the GOP. Pay back is coming around and the people will get to see who these clowns really are. Before the midterm elections, you have old turtle face talking about we will not shut the government down, and what happens when the President doesn’t give what they want. They are ready to shut it down. They out right lied. When are you damn fools going to wake up. They don’t care about you. All they care about is making the rich richer at your expense.

  3. Aww… is poor baby mad? Well, too bad!

    You reap what you sow. If your party would of been more reasonable and met the president in the middle, he wouldn’t have to go over your head and use executive actions to get things done.

    Instead, you and your fellow Republicans have done everything to stonewall the President so he wouldn’t have anything good said about him… which has to be the most freaking petty thing I’ve ever heard of. So, if the Democrats use what you’ve been using these past six years and you start whining and complaining, I, among others, will treat this like the little boy who cried ‘wolf’.

  4. “I had maybe naively hoped the president would look at the results of the election and decide to come to the political center…” — Sen. McConnell

    I really, really hate to tell you this, Senator, but President Obama has been somewhere pretty close to center for the last six years.

    While you and your friends move ever further to the right while trying to convince the Tea Partiers over there that they don’t own the Government, or the USA, for that matter.

  5. McConnell spent the last six years trying to make Obama a failed president. He shouldn’t be surprised if Obama spends the next two years making him a failed Senate Majority Leader.

  6. “I had maybe naively hoped the president would look at the results of the election and decide to come to the political center…”

    We’ve been saying: “I had maybe naively hoped the Republicans would look at the results of the election and decide to come to the political center…” for the past six years.

  7. I think President Obama has stolen the GOP’s thunder!

    Good for the President. He is smarter than all of them. For 6 years they dished it out, now they can cry and get angry, and shut down the government, because we survived it before, and we will survive it again.

  8. McConnell is how old? One hundred? he’s been “disturbed” for some years now. It’s called amnesia. McConnell’s idea of Obama meeting him in the “center” is Obama giving the GOP every damn thing they want. He won’t, and kara is a b*i*t*c*h. You reap what you sow. The sowing is complete. Now, here comes the reaping! This should be GOOD!

  9. It’s an impeachment trap, aimed at forcing republicans to either shutdown the government, or begin impeachment proceedings against him, neither of which can succeed in this political atmosphere. In chess terms he’s put a rook in danger, knowing if they bite at the bait, their queen is in danger. But they aren’t playing a game they can win, because the teabaggers will force them to do one or the other, and either option will make the party a pushover in the next election.

  10. I love all of you guys…you get it. This President doesn’t have to play the political game the same as before . He’s in a lame duck sess. The problem for the republicans is the President’s not a lame duck. It’s after the election; Let’s see how he rolls.

  11. “I had maybe naively hoped the president would look at the results of the election and decide to come to the political center…” — Sen. McConnell
    Well, well, well… In 2012 I had naively hoped that Republicans in Congress would look at the President’s re-election and understand that he had just got ANOTHER mandate to lead this country in the direction he wanted to – Republicans reaction was a huge disappointment. Your turn now, Republicans!

  12. Where was the loudmouth McConnell when Bush was issuing all those Executive Orders? Jumping up and down for joy so he can take it and shove it now. Being majority leader does not give him the right to threaten the President about what he can and cannot do after six years of obstructing even Presidential nominees for years.

    GOP heads exploding as Pres Obama is standing tall and not caving. They are about to find out what a Progressive President is all about! Love it!

  13. Teddy Roosevelt said: I can’t slow down now because there are demons out there.
    I guess Obama decided to read his book. That’s the action that is needed. Maybe a national Prairie park in the path of the Keystone piprline is in order.

  14. They repeatedly refused to compromise. McConnell doesn’t want the president to meet him in the middle. He wants Obama to move to the right and give the congressional Republicans what they want.

    ^^ This is what Bill Clinton did.

  15. The president has lined his pockets with some nice sized smooth rocks so he can pluck Mcconnell on his ball spot and then fire an 80 mile fast one at Boehners ear. They obstructed his influcture plan that cost millions of jobs for a job hungry country, how dare they try to threathen him. Lead on Mr. President lead on.

  16. Oh Thaddeus……I like your way of thinking! Another national park or preservation for the Native American’s. Not to mention the route could further endanger the already endangered black footed ferret and the whooping crane in Nebraska! Teddy and FDR my favorites…..

  17. Obama is actually in a strong position because most of the Conservative Democrats are gone. He could never take really strong positions when they were around. With them gone and as a lame duck he can follow his heart.

  18. And sadly, only 36% of the country voted so the mandate that they think they have, is just one more thing in their lying imaginations.

  19. Haven’t you noticed that in elections where the vote is around some 30% the rethugs always claim a mandate? It’s an old, well established, rethug claim.

  20. When are these idiots going to realize that Obama is way out of their league intellectually!? Of course how can they get over on a half-Vulcan Jedi Master named Obama-Wan!? Meesa think they have toys in their attics!

  21. Ouch! —-McConnell is actually saying that. And is Crying out loud by also saying: Hey don’t do that Mr. President, you’re making us look bad over here. Waaaaa!

    Obama: Really?
    ;)

  22. If 70% of people do not vote, their opinion doesn’t count. They lost their right to #itch, moan and complain. The remainder of people who do take the time to do their civic duty, deserve to be heard and yes, it can be considered a mandate. works both ways, R’s and D’s!

  23. Any one who is selling the republican’s line that their opposition to Obama has been solely about his policies is willfully lying and as The Bible says, “The truth is not in them.”

    With, of course, the usual irrelevant very small number of Black people who are either self-serving or flat out stupid, a group that’s made up of 99.99999% White people holds all the truth you can handle.

  24. It’s amazing, Americans either didn’t vote or they voted for a bunch of lying, bigoted
    racist who used propaganda to deceive the people. When a man comes forth and at least trys to do some good for a dying nation, and they reject him in favor of evil doers, the wrath of Almighty God is surely at the doorstep.

  25. HAHAHAHAHAHA! If Yertle the Turtle is getting his tighty whitey’s in a bunch, POTUS is DEFINITELY doing something right!!!!

    Methinks Yertle best get the smelling salts and fainting couch ready :)

  26. It’s just funny, Low Gas Prices,killing of Osama Bin Ladden, passing the first major leglistation on healthcare over the past 70 years,umeployment at it’s lowest of the past 10 years and stock at it’s highest in the past15 years, and people who DIDN’T vote have the nerve to bitch about Obama, it’s just funny to me! Obama Keep doing what your doing brother, some of us actually pay attention to your accomplishments

  27. I think that President Obama deserves a break. He should take the family and go to Hawaii for the remainder of his term – and, not to forget to take at least, a gross of Veto Pens with him! [WINK]

  28. Yes, this has been a pet peeve of mine for years – how the Repubs have tried and successfully in some ways, moved the country to the right and meanwhile the GOP makes statements like this. Pretty skillful slight of hand. [WINK]
