Reid: McConnell Not Focused on Obama Defeat

Sunday, 09 Jan 2011 09:30 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid says he doesn't think top Republican Mitch McConnell is serious when he says his No. 1 goal is to make Barack Obama a one-term president.

Reid, D-Nev., says he believes McConnell, R-Ky., is more concerned with the economy, immigration and other problems facing the country.

McConnell has drawn criticism from Democrats for saying that denying Obama a second term is his chief priority.

Reid says that if Republicans have made defeating Obama's re-election bid the focus of the next two years, then "that's a bad place to place your cards."

Reid made the comments on NBC's "Meet the Press."
