Barack Obama, our next President

Jay Carney and several democrats came out and publicly stated the sequestration came from the White House.
Are they uneducated?
Obama has been blaming the republicans ever since.
He is uneducated?
Or is it just you?
The cuts in the sequester was a compromise to Republicans to raise the debt ceiling. What is wrong with you?

White House retreats from doomsday spending cuts predictions.

I don't know which is worse? Clinton's Y2K scam, planes falling out of the sky, the world ending or Obama's Sequestration Cuts, lies an apocalypse or doomsday will occur. A Sequestration Order, automatic cuts heiled and signed by a Clown Obama.

Yeah, and arrest every single one of them with any trace of anything in their urine, make them all felons, put them in prison....

Not one person on the left - not one - can come up just with one thing the president has proposed in a plan to cut spending.
He talks a lot. But if he ever had a plan, Senate Democrats would have passed it already.
So how can the left possibly think the Republicans have anything whatsoever to go on?
It's the enigma of the left.
Lesson #5 All "spending" is not created equal. That's why the "sequester" is so stupid.

The sequester requires everything to be cut by exactly the same amount. That assumes that every outlay is just as important as every other outlay. But that defies common sense.

Cutting some kinds of spending has a greater impact on our long-term welfare than cutting other spending. And just as importantly, some cuts are simply fairer than others.

The Republicans want to cut Social Security benefits over the long run. Which do you think is fairer -- cutting Social Security spending for people who have a median income of $22,000 per year, or ending the tax loophole (tax expenditure) that allows speculators who run hedge funds -- and sometimes make billions -- to pay 15 percent to 20 percent lower tax rates than people who produce goods and services for a living?

Very few Americans would agree that requiring middle income people who work as contractors to the federal government to take a 20 percent cut in pay would have the same impact on the people involved as cutting the tax subsidy we give to big oil companies that are making record profits.

Fewer still believe that a tax subsidy for executives who fly around in corporate jets is a better use of taxpayer money than feeding poor children.

Lesson #6: These arbitrary, automatic spending cuts did not result from a "failure to communicate" in Washington.

Many pundits seem obsessed with the notion that the sequester is simply a result of the poor communication or negotiating skills of Washington politicians. Frankly that is simply ridiculous.

In 2011 the Republicans made a conscious decision to refuse to raise the debt ceiling -- to pay the country's bills -- unless they could ring budget concessions from the president. They were willing to blow themselves -- and the economy -- to pieces to get their way. The sequester was part of the deal that was struck to avoid that man-made catastrophe.

Now the Republicans are once again holding the country hostage to its demands to "cut entitlements" -- meaning Social Security, and Medicare -- and to maintain tax loopholes for the wealthy. They have resorted to hostage-taking because their positions are so unpopular that they believe they have no chance of passing them them through a normal democratic process. So they refuse to compromise one inch when it comes to a fix that might avoid the arbitrary cuts that even they admit will hurt the economy.

Better "communication" or "negotiating skills" will not affect this intransigence one iota. As today's Washington Post makes clear, their unwillingness to cRepublican leadership and their far right wing.

The GOP's supporters on Wall Street had a big role getting them to back off their threat to default on the nation's debts. Wall Street believed that default could lead to another worldwide financial market meltdown. Not so with the sequester. In fact, many on Wall Street have actually been crusading for more austerity and stock prices have remained high.

Many federal contractors are, of course, directly affected by the sequester and are certainly weighing in with the Republican leadership. In fact, the GOP sequester strategy carries many risks for the Party, but these risks will not materialize as a result of anything that goes on exclusively inside the Beltway.

The security of the country is far more important than the security of a do-nothing government employee.

However, the sequester is great and let the boy make a fool of himself.

Wow, since when did the White House of the United states of America[ OF the People, By the People, For the People, become some sort of "personal residence?"

The White House is canceling tours of the president's famous abode starting next week, saying the budget cuts that went into effect last week are to blame.

A phone recording on the call line for White House visitors informs callers that White House tours will be canceled, starting this weekend.

"Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House tours will be canceled effective Saturday March 9th, 2013 until further notice," the recording says. "Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours. We very much regret having to take this action particularly during the popular spring touring season."....

CHRISTIE for POTUS 2016!
