Wednesday during his post-election press conference ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl took President Barack Obama to task for not even meeting with members of Congress over the last six years.
He said, “Mitch McConnell has been the Republican leader six years, as long as you’ve been president, but his office tells me he’s only met with you, one-on-one, once or twice during that entire six-year period.”
Obama deflected responsibility answering, “The fact is that most of my interactions with members of congress have been cordial and they’ve been constructive, often times though we haven’t been able to get what’s discussed in the leadership meeting through caucuses in the House and the Senate to deliver a bill. The good news is, that now Mitch Mcconnell and John Boehner are from the same party. I think they can come together and decide what their agenda is.”
