The GOP Can't Have it Both Ways on Sequestration

Doesn't this kind of talk contradict the story line that the sequester was all President Obama's idea (and therefore his fault?)

“We asked him to commit to us that when the cuts actually came on March 1, that he would stand firm and not give in, and he’s holding to that,” said Representative Steve Scalise, Republican of Louisiana and chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee.“I think Friday will be an important day that shows we’re finally willing to stand and fight for conservative principles and force Washington to start living within its means. And that will be a big victory.”

Representative Mick Mulvaney, a South Carolina Republican who was elected on the 2010 Tea Party wave and has had his differences with the speaker, was similarly complimentary toward Mr. Boehner.

“He’s doing exactly what he said he was going to do, and I think it’s working to our favor and to his,” Mr. Mulvaney said.“I get the feeling that our party is probably more unified right now than it has been at any time in the last several months.”…

If so many Republicans will go on record expressing approval of the sequester going into effect - even as the president emphatically urges negotiations to avert it - won't the party have to take responsibility for the sequester's effects? If popular, the GOP will get credit. But if not ...

Do you really believe that Obama will cave without getting revenue? He isn't "trying to panic the country", he's keeping a promise to have a budget that EVERY economist agrees needs both cuts and revenue. You have to watch something besides FOX to ever escape your fantasy world. Are you loving being uninformed?

I thought I'd stop by and club a few baby seal fetuses but what do I find? The same old horse's-ass trying to be profound. Give it up, Trigger, the reason the view in your stall never changes is because Roy had you stuffed, remember?

The fact that polls universally show that people blame Republicans in Congress appears not to have penetrated their thick skulls. Congress will back down when the shyt starts flying. It's just a matter of time. Sequesters never run their course. It's time for the Tea Party to start acting like adults and for Congress to do it's job.

A secure man wouldn't need to behave like this to secure attention for himself by stealing the name and identity of a poor, helpless, somewhat desperate woman such as myself. What?... what's that you say? Well thank you! Yes, they are quite nice, don't you think? Yes, yes, I know you just said so... but I guess I was just fishing for compliments... what? My brain is like a giant grouper? Thank you!

Well, maybe, but personally I feel it's time to club the tea party to death like a herd of baby seals.

Cuts AND revenue.
Guess what obstructionist party protecting their wealthy donors won't pass a budget with revenue in it?

Tea Party Republicans are crowing about the "sequestration" cuts beginning today (Friday). "This will be the first significant tea party victory in that we got what we set out to do in changing Washington," says Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.), a Tea Partier who was first elected in 2010.

Deficit-deluded tea party Republicans love the sequester scheme

Their obsessive and mistaken belief that the federal deficit is the greatest threat to the republic is leading them to block any compromise with Democrats that would delay or repeal the looming budget reductions.
