Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will talk with the choir Thursday at the Heritage Foundation. And it seems he has little interest in finding common ground with President Obama.

The only important thing, it seems, is to make him disappear two long years from now. This from the AP:

The Senate’s Republican leader says congressional lawmakers can and should vote to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law, repeatedly if necessary. If Obama should veto laws repealing the health care overhaul, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, the House should cancel funding for its programs. As for the Senate, he says that senators should vote against what he calls the law’s “most egregious provisions.” In remarks prepared for a speech Thursday to the conservative Heritage Foundation, McConnell says it’s all part of the effort to deny Obama a second term in the White House in 2012.Tuesday’s election gave Republicans at least 46 Senate seats next year, making McConnell the leader of a strengthened minority.

I like that. It’s all part of the effort to deny Obama a second term.

Not part of an effort to do what’s right in terms of fixing our wasteful, inefficient and incredibly costly healthcare system.

Just a stepping stone to full power.
