After President Barack Obama took office, two influential Republicans made statements to show the world that the Republican Party had no intent to cooperate with him in solving problems and putting the country back on the right track. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stated his party’s top priority was to deny the president a second term — not to fix the country’s problems. Thus came minimum cooperation and continual obstruction of the bills introduced by the president and of his policies. Rush Limbaugh made it very clear when he said, “I hope he fails.” Didn’t these two realize that if the president fails the country fails, or did they even care?
