Republicans wrecking the economy to improve their chances in 2012?

Chuck Schumer:
“Now it is becoming clear that insisting on a slash-and-burn approach may be part of this plan — and it has a double-benefit for Republicans,”  “It is ideologically tidy and it undermines the economic recovery, which they think only helps them in 2012.  Republicans aren’t just opposing the president any more, they are opposing the economic recovery itself and all that means for America’s working and middle class families.”
Are Republicans wrecking the economic recovery to defeat Obama in 2012? Of course, they are. Mitch McConnel said so in the above clip. "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." -- Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Katrina vanden Heuvel:
"McConnell summarized the Republican message for the election in 2012: Obama inherited a poor economy but made it worse. Given the Republicans’ threat to blow up the economy over the debt limit, their opposition to any sensible measure to boost the economy and put people to work, their efforts to gut even weak financial regulation, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that Republicans have moved from rooting for a bad economy to use in running against Obama to actively committing to making it worse."

Republican's:  government for the rich by the rich and to hell with everyone else, especially the poor, the elderly, the middle class and the unemployed.
