Mitch McConnell proud he told Obama he wouldn't do his job until he left office: Should elected officials have to work regardless of politics?

Mitch McConnell proud he told Obama he wouldn't do his job until he left office: Should elected officials have to work regardless of politics?
  • Yes, elected officials should have to work regardless of politics.

    Yes, elected officials should have to work regardless of politics. In the case of senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, he should be required to do his job by facilitating the confirmation hearings of Merrick Garland, the Supreme Court pick from President Obama. He should not forego his duties because he disagrees with the president.

  • Yes, elected officials should have to work regardless

    Yes, elected officials should have to work regardless of politics. Whether or not Obama is in office has nothing to do with the fact that he works for the people. He is an elected official by citizens and therefore works for them. He should have to continue working or face consequences.

  • They are hired for a job.

    Imagine any other kind of job where a person didn't do the work just because they didn't like the people they had to work with. In politics, Americans like balance. That is why so many midterm elections go against the President. Elected officials should do the work that they are hired to do.

  • Mitch McConnell should do the job he was elected to do.

    It goes without saying that an elected official should start doing their job the day they take office. Not everyone likes or gets along with their boss. This is only a temporary situation and Mr. McConnell should get on with doing his job. He is elected as a servant to the people not President Obama.

  • Really? That's what you're going with?

    Can you prove that his constituencies wanted him to stop the confirmation from taking place? Did he conduct a survey, or have the part that he represents, hold a special election to have the people decide? Please do your research before you say anything that is misinformation, which then will be spread like wildfire to other people who will form their opinion on possible misinformation.

  • Although I agree with the notion, McConnell did do his job

    McConnell's Job is to do what the people who elected him want of him, not what Barack Obama wants him to do. The article presented is a complaint that McConnell did not allow Obama to appoint a Justice to the Supreme Court. In doing so he did do his job as that he prevented the current President from doing any further damage to his successor's Presidency.

The past 6 years have proved that blatant obstruction has worked well for the republican party. I expect we will see something similar any time democrats gain the presidency or majority of one house.
