Hey, I understand! To the Village, this is so common, it’s not even worth mentioning that Elaine Chao is Mitch McConnell’s
beard nominal wife:
CNN host Candy Crowley on Sunday failed to tell viewers that former Bush Labor Secretary Elaine Chao was married to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as she blasted President Barack Obama’s “far-left agenda” and claimed that he had not been as willing to work towards bipartisan solutions as Republican senators.
During a panel segment on CNN’s State of the Union, Crowley noted that Obama had accused Republicans of obstructionism and standing in the way of improving jobs and the economy.
“I don’t know how he can say that when he had control of both the houses in the legislative branch, he had control of the White House from 2009 to 2010,” Chao opined. “He was able to get sweeping changes through to our economy, which actually, including for example, Obamacare and also Dodd-Frank , which are actually having a hampering effect — they’re having a dampening effect on job creation.”
“I’m actually rather surprised that in his inaugural address that there was not a more magnanimous spirit shown, that there was not more of a graciousness to focus on reaching out to the other side to work together,” she continued. “He uses the words, but if you look at the agenda, it’s very much a far-left agenda item… So, I think the president has to focus on job creation. He cannot do everything at one time.”
