Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell received considerable criticism for previously saying his chief goal was to make President
Barack Obama a one-term president, Politico
says. But McConnell hasn't changed his mind.
"Well that is true, that’s my single most important political goal, along with every active Republican in the country," McConnell said on “Fox News Sunday,” “But that’s in 2012. Our biggest goal for this year is to get this country straightened out, and you can’t get this country straightened out if you don’t do something about spending, about deficit, about debt and get this economy moving again.
“So, our goal is to have a robust vibrant economy that will benefit all Americans, and that’s why I think this debate we’re having right now is so important to our country’s future,” he said.
