It’s to conquer Republicans. The goal isn’t to prevent gridlock, but to guarantee it.”

Stemming from President Obama’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign, McConnell said the message coming from the White House is that the president has “given up” on Congress and has decided to try now to “convince” Americans that the unstable economy is Congress’ fault and not his administration
