The White House, while advancing an aggressive public relations campaign to highlight the damaging effects of $85 billion in automatic spending cuts, is largely resigned to the fact that they will go into effect on Friday.

The ones that started 1 Jan 2013. Everyone knows about the taxes he got from the Reps - that is when they said the Reps caved in. Well not it is sequester time and Obama signed it himself. I believe Obama has made this a SCARE TACTIC so he could fly all over America spewing his LIES. LIES have a way of catching up to him.
He has AF1 and the new DNC luxury bus, the press will not catch him if he does not want to be caught.

Not to forget creating hundreds more future Democrats by releasing all the detained illegals instead of deporting them.

Even if the press did catch up with him they would say he walks on water - I am so sick of ABC, NBC, and CBS. They even go so far as to change the video where McCain looked bad and they changed the news media where Michelle talked about Sandy shootings. I want the news - NOT what these news stations are putting on the AIR - the LIES are now being identified and I feel these stations should be boycotted for their misleading the PUBLIC.

This is a copy and paste from the internet on Obama and the sequester

Andrew Napolitano on Tuesday suggested that President Barack Obama could be impeached for implementing automatic spending cuts in the so-called "sequestration" in a way that embarrassed Republicans.

"If you're talking about the military, for example, the president wants to hire another 100 soldiers, can he only hire 98? Of course not," Napolitano explained to the hosts of Fox & Friends. "He can hire all 100, and he can take that 2 percent cut in decreased spending and apply it somewhere else in the Defense Department."

"The president has an obligation under the Constitution to make the federal government work, and to make it do the things that we have hired it to do," he continued. "You can't get on an airplane without going through the TSA. The plane can't get in the air without an air traffic controller. The country will not stay safe and free without soldiers. These are far more important than other operations of the government, from which he could cut in order to keep those operations that we rely on every day at full force!"

Fox News host Steve Doocy noted that instead of making reductions in spending "as easy as possible," Obama and his administration were "scaring the living daylights out of people... He's become President Panic."

The deal is that doctors are bad and lawyers are good, there are no price controls targeting K-Street.
