(Politicus USA) – The lazy explanation from the media and political chattering classes is that Democrats lost their Senate majority because of Barack Obama. The truth is that the Senate Republicans ran a years long con on the American people that resulted in the GOP’s election win.
Republicans originally had a plan to obstruct everything that President Obama attempted in order to make him a one-term president.
Here is what Sen. Mitch McConnell told National Journal in 2010,
McConnell: We need to be honest with the public. This election is about them, not us. And we need to treat this election as the first step in retaking the government. We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day; you need to go out and help us finish the job.”
