McConnell has been a big roadblock for what little Obama has tried to accomplish. If anything is going to get done on any issue in our gov't, then it will get done without McConnell. McConnell is up for re-election next year, so if the good people of Kentucky are finally fed up with do-nothingism out of their politicians, then they should go hard left.

The whole world needs to go left, but not further than a socialism-capitalism hybrid.

JG, both Obama and Reid have bent over backwards for nearly 5 years trying to get the repulsive thugs who constitute the Republican party to do anything to help America with no success. Go peddle your lies on Redstate where lies are truth and facts are fiction. People here, aside from a few nut jobs like you and Diane O are too intelligent to buy any of your idiocy.
