McConnell: I'm ‘100 Percent’ Focused on ‘Stopping’ Biden Agenda – Do You Support His Objective?
Do you support McConnell focusing "on stopping" Biden?
What's the story?
- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he is "100 percent" focused "on stopping" President Joe Biden's administration.
- The minority leader made his remarks amidst a House GOP leadership feud: Rep. Liz Cheney (R-KY) stands to lose her leadership post over remarks criticizing- and rebuking - former President Donald Trump's baseless claims that he won the 2020 election.
- Asked about Cheney's endangered leadership post and the so-called "Big Lie" that the 2020 election wasn't valid, McConnell dodged both questions and instead responded:
"One-hundred percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration."
- "We're confronted with severe challenges from a new administration and a narrow majority of Democrats in the House and a 50-50 Senate to turn America into a socialist country, and that's 100% of my focus," McConnell added.
- Trump criticized both lawmakers in a statement Wednesday, calling Cheney a "warmonger" with "virtually no support left" in Wyoming and referring to the longtime Kentucky senator as "gutless and clueless MINORITY Leader Mitch McConnell..."
- Biden responded to McConnell's comments with a chuckle:
- "Look, he said that in our last administration, (with former President) Barack (Obama, that) he was going to stop everything -- and I was able to get a lot done with him," Biden told reporters.
"Again, look -- everything I'm proposing that be done to generate economic growth, employment, and put us in a position where we can out-compete any other country in the world with research and development, and moving ahead: I pay for it."

This screams "I'm running for president, so I'm getting my platform in now" motive. If you are "100% against" someone and you don't even know all of the things they are going to do because they haven't happened yet, you really are not against their policies, you are against what they stand for in your eyes. which is bad politics.
Abolish the filibuster to stop GOP from destroying our Democracy. Pass the Freedom to Vote Act.
I can't take this dude seriously, smh.
Good luck to you Sir in your new adventures...by defeating Biden you mean you are resigning so that honorable people may replace you.
You should’ve thought about that months ago
If Republicans only objective is to stop or block an administration that was overwhelmingly voted into office, they are no longer serving their constituents. They are no longer working for the advancement of any policy. Republican elected official must represent all of the people who live in their districts.
For a leader of the minority party to state so openly that he shall lead his part in a reign of obstruction defies logic! Why? Because rather than work to compromise and improve the lives and circumstances of Americans he has chose to selfishly think of himself! He wants power returned to his party and himself mot for good of country but to improve his and his friends circumstances! How do I know? Well when he was in power he chose to give huge tax cuts to the Uber wealthy and wield his power to dole out bills and support like party favors many of which actually made life harder for ordinary citizens (re: not Uber wealthy) to improve their lives! The other side to this pronouncement is the Democrat law makers to focus on their agenda and worry about inclusion of Republicans since they are not doing anything put turning their party into pre authoritarian rule-that’s next phase post Trump desensitization of rule, law, honesty, ethics and integrity and fairness like the insurrection so when minority Leader says he is obstructing as Job 1 read as the undoing of Democracy as you used to know it! What happened to compromise in earnest not that insincere mockery of 2008 and 2014 pushed by Republicans who turned around and still did NOT vote for the bill. Yep we saw you then and see you now! If you think for one moment that hitching your wagon to Trumpism because your “read the room” top aide told you go all in with the “base” and push this “purity” agenda then you like your comrades better stop denouncing our adversaries because you have used their ways and means to gain and retain power so that makes you leader of hypocrisy and fundamentally flawed but if we can be truly honest as long your family and friends are living well do really care…don’t answer it will only add to litany of falsifying facts (fraudulent election; voting fraud, insurrection; over turning an election etc)!
We see the real Mitch McConnell emerge again, after a few disingenuous remarks about bipartisanship. McConnell is only good at one thing: controlling the game by obstructing. He doesn't care about bipartisanship, he doesn't care about progress, he doesn't care about infrastructure, healthcare, education, immigration, the economy or the pandemic. He just wants to "stop" the opposition until he can get control again. McConnell and his party will never do anything to move America forward; they're just going to keep standing in the way. They must be voted out completely in 2022.
So.....Russia is massing troops on the border with Ukraine. Ukraine is threatening to take Crimea back by force. China is threatening Taiwan and its neighbors while also threatening our ships and Navy. N Korea is testing missiles again and restarting their nuclear weapons program. Iran has been emboldened and making more than their normal threats. Our southern border is a humanitarian disaster caused directly by this administration, and the administration that promised transparency is hiding it and not letting the media have access. Ford is closing a plant and moving it to Mexico after just bringing it back from Mexico because of the current Administration’s plan for Increased taxes. Price of steel up 145%, Lumber 126%, Wheat up 25%, Food index up 25%, Cotton 35%, Silver 38%, Copper 50%, Soybeans 71%, Oil 80%, Pipeline jobs lost. Wall construction jobs lost. 1.9 trillion in stimulus that funds the administrations pet projects and only paid a fraction to the people. 29 trillion in debt with 4.8 trillion projected 2021 deficit before the 2 trillion dollar stimulus proposed today for the new green deal. 🤦♂️ 9+% unemployment with millions of job openings that can’t be filled because federal unemployment assistance makes it more advantageous for people to stay home than work. All in the first 70 days. The current president is a disaster, hold on tight, the next 4 years are going to be a rough ride. All I'm saying is...you Biden supporters aren’t posting very much about the great things he’s doing. COPIED & PASTED
Considering the shit show the first four months have been? Hell yes - stop Biden.
The Colorado birthday crime is horrific beyond anything anybody should ever experience. It is a truly horrific crime. But it is a LOCAL matter, and we have capable police, and Sherrif professionals at the city, county, and state levels to deal with those crimes. We do not need the federal government to focus on them.
It’s people like you what causes unrest!
The Republicans currently have zero ideas of their own (aside from anti-democratic authoritarianism) so their only platform is to be against anything the Democrats suggest.
He's consistent. I can respect that. I never thought this dude was racist, even during Obama. He's all about power and hates to lose. We need people like him on the other side. He owns who he is and the media covers for him, while Democrats try to ACT un-partisan. It's a bad joke that only helps wealthy.
Here are the daily figures for Coronavirus since January 20th at noontime to present 112 days. Cases 8,263,119 new cases yesterday 40,095. Deaths 314,635 new deaths yesterday 878.
Instead of saying it in the most simple way possible, I will say this: Mitch McConnell is a terrible politician who loves his position of power and legal brdes he received. How he is still member of Congress is beyond me
Just goes to show that McConnell and republicans do not want to work across the aisle. He destroyed our system of checks and balances, our whole structure of government. Traitor!
We need stop Mitch “I wanna be Mao” McConnell. He is only second to Trump for destroying America.
This mentally-challenged moron of a stolen election is feverishly trying to reverse all the good things President Trump did, including turning our military into a freak show.\ https://www.realjewnews.com/?p=1486
This is misdirected effort. He should be focused on bettering the country.
