NYT David Brooks on his Sequestration Column:'I probably went a bit too far'
"The above column was written in a mood of justified frustration over the fiscal idiocy that is about to envelop the nation. But in at least one respect I let my frustration get the better of me. It is true, as the director of the Congressional Budget Office has testified, that the administration has not proposed a specific anti-sequester proposal that can be scored or passed into law. It is not fair to suggest, as I did, that tax hikes for the rich is the sole content of the presidentís approach. The White House has proposed various constructive changes to spending levels and entitlement programs. These changes are not nearly adequate in my view, but they do exist, and I should have acknowledged the balanced and tough-minded elements in the presidentís approach."

Who cares about David Brooks' opinion when he obviously is constrained to parrot his employer?

hilarious.
i live in one of the most backwoods counties in Indiana, which, for some reason, pulls more from the state per capita than any other county.
and this county sure didn't go for Obama. and we might have a couple of black folks living here, but they have a tendency to stay out of sight for some reason beyond my fathoming.
YOU LIVE IN INDIANA? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS? OH WELL, I LIVED IN GEORGIA FOR YEARS SO I GUESS I CAN UNDERSTAND IT. THE THINGS WE'LL DO FOR (LOVE?) WHAT IS THERE TO DO IN INDIANA PRAY TELL? I'M TOO MELLOWED OUT TO FIGHT SO I'M GOING TO GO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY BIG-BREASTED REDHEADS AT THE GYM. GIVE 'EM HELL, HARRY.

See? Bush signed it into law!
Ask the Liberals!
Obama says sequester and furloughs are a bad deal! He blames Republicans for his signature, and Liberals blindly believe him.
Obana in campaign mode again instead of using leadership in Congesss! He has no leadership skills that's why!
Furloughs are pay cuts, not layoffs.

Federal employees are overpaid anyway, so about time.

ACTUALLY, AT THE TIME I WAS THERE THE TROUT FISHING IN GEORGIA WAS SPECTACULAR, THOUGH IT HAS SINCE BEEN RUINED BY THE INFLUX OF ADDITIONAL SOUTHERNERS.

this must be Obammy's newly appointed Reparations Czar. the new White House dress code includes pants showing the ass crack and a gold tooth. this year's Easter Egg Hunt will have a black bunny in an Escalade pelting the kids in a drive-by, but they'll all get an equal number of eggs.

The Republican Leadership Deficit

When major parties go into the political wilderness, they typically donít look to the same leaders that led them into it to help get them out again. Unfortunately for them, Republicans have mostly relied on holdovers and retreads from the Bush era for their leaders in Congress and their presidential tickets. Of course, simply replacing the old guard with new people that say and do more or less exactly the same things wonít be very effective, either.
