Washington (CNN) - Ken Cuccinelli, Senate Conservative Fund president, blames the stalemate in Congress on the Democratic “obstructionist Senate.”
He says the House, at the very least, is voting more than the Senate, and he says the government should get out of the way.
Democratic Sen. “Harry Reid is blocking this and he is the lead blocker for the President, whose approval rating is so low in the sixth year of his terms that it is going to do harm not on a race-by-race basis, but across the board, because of the utter failure of the policies,” Cuccinelli said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
When asked about President Obama's role this week as the news-conference-talker in chief, he added, “Give me a break.”
Cuccinelli, who has been a strong opponent of Obamacare, criticized the media for what he describes as a “love fest” for Obama, despite breaking a promise for transparency.
He agreed, however, with Democratic strategist Stephanie Cutter that when a president takes a vacation, it's a perfect talking point for political opponents, regardless of political persuasion.
He quipped, “I joke with some of my conservative friends who - uh-oh, look at the President, playing all this golf. I’m like, what, do you want him at his desk?”
