Sen. Mitch McConnell: Obama Agenda "Over"

REPUBLICAN LEADER: A Political Biography of Senator Mitch McConnell

Let's hope Republican Mitch McConnell delivers on that promise. Otherwise, it may be his career as a Kentucky Senator that is over. McConnell was very disappointing last year when Democrats rammed Obamacare through the Senate. He could have shut the Senate down and required every bill and amendment to be read in their entirety. He didn't. Let's hop the GOP landslide victory in November helped him find his spine.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Saturday that President Barack Obama's legislative agenda is "over," but said GOP lawmakers are willing to work with the White House to do what they "think is right for America."

In a speech Saturday night to a GOP crowd in his hometown, the Kentucky Republican derided Obama for performing "Clintonian back flips" to portray himself as a moderate, but said it's yet to be seen whether the new tone is "rhetoric or reality."
