McConnell Cries About Slow Recovery? You Built That, Mitch

McConnell complain about the economy not recovering quickly enough during the Obama administration, forgets GOP caused it through obstruction.

Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was on Fox News' Your World with Neil Cavuto on Wednesday to discuss the economy and Hair Trumpf. He had the nerve to complain about the economy not recovering quickly enough during the Obama administration. No mention that he and his GOP colleagues consciously obstructed President Obama for the last seven years. Oh, he also gave a "lesser of two evils" take on the election but didn't waver in his support of the Orange One.

About the economy McConnell said:

"I don't know where they got that...I've been saying the opposite. The middle class is shrinking, this is the worst recovery after a deep recession since World War II. The number of people on food stamps is at a record level. The labor participation rate is back where is was at the Carter Administration. I don't recall saying anything optimistic."

Does Congress deserve blame? He says a quick "No" and blames the "regime."

He slings some mud at Obamacare and Dodd-Frank. Then he blames the FCC and other agencies. Oh, and the administration itself. They move to Trump. McConnell said:

"I don't agree with him on everything but I know this for sure...he won't be four more years like the last eight. Hillary Clinton will be a third term for Barack Obama."

A third term for Barack Obama? PROMISE? Seriously, has he looked at Obama's approval ratings lately? Has he looked at his own?

He ends with a dream that Trump would "walk into the Oval Office on his first day and unravel the executive orders" which, to him, would be wonderful. Does McConnell really think Trump would do anything on his first day to benefit anyone but himself?

McConnell, go back in your shell. You are delusional.
