Following this morning’s White House jobs meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issued a statement laying out his four-part plan to tackle the nation’s unemployment crisis.

Let’s just say there’s a bit of a theme:

•           Increase clean nuclear energy in America

•           Expand exploration of offshore areas for oil and gas development

•           Develop Clean Coal technologies

•           Expand American exports through free trade agreements

McConnell’s plan brings to mind the charges leveled yesterday by House GOP leaders against Obama’s plans for health care. Bipartisanship, the Republicans said, is not best accomplished by forcing one party’s ideas on the other. Seems that McConnell, at least as it pertains to his call to expand offshore drilling, didn’t get the memo.
