With one week left until Election Day probably ushers in Republican control of the House and closely divided Senate, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has seemingly handed the Democrats a perfect talking point to hammer them with in the home stretch. In an interview with the National Journal, McConnell tells Major Garrett, "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." The single most important thing we want to achieve? Not fixing the economy? Not lowering the deficit? Not addressing immigration reform? Or a million other things? With President Obama already portraying the GOP in his stump speeches as more concerned with political victories than governing and solving problems, this is a godsend.
