The Republican leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, said Wednesday that if the 2012 presidential election were being held today, the GOP theme should be: "He made it worse." (see video below)

The bumper-sticker slogan might not quite be morning-in-America optimism, but it captures the Republican position that President Obama has been unable to right the struggling economy, a position the White House routinely counters by saying the outlook would be worse had the president not taken took the steps he did to shore it up.

McConnell said he had no worries about the emerging field of potential GOP presidential candidates to challenge Obama saying that eventually a front-runner would "get on a roll."

"They're going to look a lot better than they do today," McConnell said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.
