OBAMA:“So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”

-- An email from USDA official Charles Brown rejecting a subordinate’s suggestion of a way to lessen the consequences of budget cuts for citizens.

Americans have a government that now claims the power to execute its own citizens on its own soil without trial but that cannot find a way to afford public tours of government buildings.
Those two decrees on Tuesday from the Obama administration – Attorney General Eric Holder claiming the power for the president to use drones domestically to kill citizens and the White House closing its doors to public tours citing smaller increases to federal spending – sort of sum up the American moment, 2013.

So what becomes of a government that claims the power to do almost anything but that can’t seem to do anything at all? Nothing good.
While one might assume that it would be with some embarrassment that a president would see the White House shut to public tours – the people kept out of the people’s house – the messages from President Obama and his team about the stuttering and stumbling of the government these days seem to be: the worse the better.
Obama has a big problem on his hands.

The president believes vehemently that the federal government should be spending more, not less, right now. He has laid out a bold second-term agenda in which deficit spending and higher taxes on top earners will finance what he calls “investments” in things like green energy and education.

But because he has a worse relationship with Congress than perhaps any president since Richard Nixon and seems to despise the kind of deal making that has been necessary for all of his predecessors, Obama is stuck with automatic spending cuts.

Obama couldn’t muster a deal on the debt limit in 2011, something George W. Bush accomplished with a Democratic congress and rock-bottom approval ratings, so the president devised and approved automatic reductions to automatic increases in spending. There is so little trust in the president among his foes that he had to build a dead-man switch into the deal to break the impasse.

But watching the ongoing idiocy videos of the progressive graduates on the internet everyday is a golden charm. Fifty years of it now. And it has screwed most people over. Thank You. Who new a few nukes from our fellow men and women in other nations would end this bull. May the succeed. Of course our own nation may do the dirty deed to bring total control to the American peasant.
