“As long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is unattainable”

Mitch McConnell, expressing the kind of pessimism many of us in this country are feeling:

Mr. McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican, said he had gone into negotiations in good faith over how to formulate a deficit-reduction package to accompany an increase in the statutory borrowing limit.

The Treasury has said the limit must be raised by Aug. 2 to avoid the potential of a U.S. default on its debts, while Mr. Obama has said he wants a deal by July 22.

After the latest negotiations, led by Mr. Obama, Mr. McConnell said he concluded that the administration had “expressed a fundamental unwillingness” to agree to significant spending cuts.

“But after years of discussions and months of negotiations, I have little question that as long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is unattainable,” Mr. McConnell said in a Senate floor speech.

There’s much that is unattainable with the mindset represented by this President holding sway over Americans.  Much.  Many of us have believed this for a very long time… and have been dismissed as radicals, as racists, as wingnuts.  But the truth is finally making a comeback.

The sooner the country elects someone different, the better the country will be.
