SAVANNAH GUTHRIE (Host): Before we let you go, you know, last time you were with us, we noticed something about the way you answered our questions. Let's play a little montage.

[SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL VIDEO CLIP] "This is about raising taxes in the middle of a recession...we should not be raising taxes on anyone in the middle of a recession...we ought not to be raising taxes on any American in the middle of this economic slowdown...I think it's a bad idea to be raising taxes on anybody in the middle of a recession."

GUTHRIE: Senator McConnell you're known in Washington as someone who stays on message better than anyone else. What's that all about?

SEN. MCCONNELL: Well, I think you have to decide what you're gonna— what you're gonna say, and uh, I think in order to drive any message home, uh, repetition's a good idea. Thanks for the compliment.
