Senate Republican leader vows to roll back Obama agenda

CNN Wire Staff

Washington (CNN) - Republicans wrested control of the House from President Barack Obama and the Democrats this week, and their next goal is to take the White House, their leader in the Senate said Thursday.

If the Republicans want to achieve their goals of repealing health care reform, ending bailouts, cutting spending and reducing the size of government, "the only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won't veto any of these things," Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said in a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

McConnell made clear that his party sees little room for compromise with Obama and the Democrats, saying voters were calling for a change in direction, rather than a middle ground.

    Republicans are attempting to take credit for improving the economy and jobs. Expect them to tell the American people that repealing everything is why the economy has improved. Don't buy into their BS, make them give proof of anything they want to take credit for.

    Everyone that voted for President Obama, do you honestly believe that President Obama can clean up the mess that Bush left for him in 2 Dam years!! No one can clean up the mess in 2 years or even four years, get real. As for the Tea Party, all you people are, are a bunch of racist people that can't believe we have a Black President. How one sided, we put up with 43 white Presidents and you have a problem with one, dam your so nice!!
