Just before President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to release a video accusing the president of dividing the country and failing to take responsibility for what has gone wrong during his time in office.

The video — produced by political filmmaker Lucas Baiano, who shared his video first with The Daily Caller — takes aim at unemployment, healthcare, the IRS scandal, and the coal industry.

"The president's job is to unite the country, not divide," McConnell says in the video. "His job is to bridge differences, not aggravate them. To encourage success, not condemn it. The president seems to have forgotten that he was elected to lead all Americans."

The quotes by the Kentucky Republican in the video come from a recent speech. The video was paid for by McConnell's Senate re-election campaign.

"At a moment when the national debt makes us look more like at Third World country than the last best hope on earth, I think our highest elected official should be looking for solutions instead of scapegoats," he says.

"Now we're seeing results, and he acts like he somehow didn't have anything to do with them. But once the oath of office has been taken, Americans expect their president to forge ahead and take responsibilities for the policies they've put in place."
