McConnell: Not Here to Make It Easy for Dems

Tuesday, 21 Dec 2010 11:10 AM

Democrats upset with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s clever maneuvering for the Republican cause can expect one thing – that’s more of the same, he says. “There’s much for them [Democrats] to be angst-ridden about,” McConnell tells Politico. "If they think it’s bad now, wait ‘til next year.”

“If the president is willing to do things that we believe in, I don’t think we’re going to say, ‘No, Mr. President we’re not going to do this any longer because you’re now with us,’” McConnell tells Politico. “Any time the president is willing to do what we think is in the best interest of the American people, we have something to talk about.”
