GOP lawmaker: McConnell's one-term wish for Obama 'absolutely' wrong

Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., on Monday criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for saying in 2010 that his top goal is to make President Obama a one-term president.

McConnell's comment has often been cited by Democrats as one that shows Republicans aren't willing to work with Obama, and instead want to block progress on all his policy proposals.

But at a No Labels event in New Hampshire on Monday, both Republicans and Democrats indicated they see McConnell's comment as the wrong way to approach the relationship between the two parties.

"Absolutely the wrong approach to take," Reed said when asked what he thought about McConnell's remarks.
