Flashback to 2005 When Obama Says 'Nuclear Option Not What Founders Had In Mind, Will Poison Washington' (Video)Topics: Political News and commentaries
Back in 2005, freshman Illinois Senator Barack Obama spoke out against the "nuclear option" - telling the chamber that "The nuclear option was not what the Founders had in mind. It will poison Washington."
That was then, but now that he's the president and needs a distraction from the debacle of Obamacare, he doesn't give a damn what "the Founders had in mind" and has no problem with his party breaking over 200 years of tradition by passing the "nuclear option" in the US senate!
In response, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) chastised Democrats in the Senate for attempting to "change the subject" from the Obamacare roll-out debacle.
"But here's the problem with this latest distraction. It doesn't distract people from Obamacare, it reminds them of Obamacare."
