In 2010 Senator Mitch McConnell said “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”
Senator McConnell had other important American issues that he could have selected as his #1 priority, such as:
- Fighting Terrorism
- Balancing the Budget
- Health Care
- Recovering from the Bush Recession
However, Senator McConnell did not select any of the aforementioned items as his #1 priority. Instead, he selected making Obama a one-term president over any of those issues.
Of course, Senator McConnell started singing a totally different tune about how we should treat the President, when Mr. Trump was elected. In 2016 Senator McConnell said “It’s time to accept the results of the election, to lower the tone and to see what we can do together to make progress for our country.”
In 2016 Senator Mitch McConnell said “One of my proudest moments was when I looked Barrack Obama in the eye and I said, Mr. President, you will not fill this Supreme Court Vacancy”
Senator McConnell used as his excuse for refusing to even hold hearings on President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, the fact that 2016 was an election year.
However, since then, Senator McConnell has done the following:
- Senator McConnell held hearings for a Trump Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, even though 2018 was an election year. He even had the balls to complain that Democrats were slowing down the confirmation process.
- Senator McConnell has refused to rule out holding Supreme Court hearings for any Trump Supreme Court nominee in 2020, which is another election year. When asked about that possibility, McConnell said “We’ll see whether there’s a vacancy in 2020”
