Analysis: Obama spending cuts strategy focused on waiting game

Feb 25, 2013 Full story: Reuters 26

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.

No they won't, because the sky isn't going to fall. In fact, no one is going to notice anything, except perhaps that some in our government might have to explain why the fear mongering and dire warnings they've been broadcasting for the last weeks never came to pass.

So true and the next Obama campaigns with his scare tactic the people will laugh at his inability to deal with problems.

On Meet the Press Sunday morning they said "the WH HAS GOT TO STOP THIS SCARE TACTIC" it is not going to be that bad. They also said the stock market is stable. The host is David Gregory a Dem.

These spending cuts don't have to happen.

All the Republicans have to do is agree to
raise taxes on the rich, plug the loopholes
and cut about $100 billion out of "defense"
spending and everything will be fine.

What's the problem?

That is exactly what Obama told them the last time and the Rep's done what he wanted that is when Obama made up the sequester and the Reps are now saying it is time to pay up. Obama wants more taxes and the Reps want CUTS. Bohner said Obama you aleady got your taxes it is time for your cuts.

On Meet the Press Sunday morning they said "the WH HAS GOT TO STOP THIS SCARE TACTIC" it is not going to be that bad. They also said the stock market is stable. The host is David Gregory, which is a Dem and an Obama supporter.

They also discussed the cost of his flights on President One and his campaigning for the sequester.

People will R E A L L Y blame the GOP for facts that Obama:
1 - Created the sequester
2 - Played election politics rather than offered ANY leadership
3 - "United" the country with unending divisive attacks

Yep - A real Piece of Work..

Well, if there is no agreement on the budget and the cuts
take effect, then they weren't scare tactics, but instead,
accurate forecasts.

What taxes did Obama already get?

Obama created his "monster" and named it Sequester. Now he's using it to scare the peasants. Even poor Sequester is upset:

ďHateful day when I received life!' exclaimed the monster in agony.'Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? Satan had his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but I am solitary and abhorred.'- FrankensteinĒ
&#8213; Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Get your pitchforks and torches and head to the rich part of town. Otherwise the terrible "sequester monster" will destroy your peaceful village!

OBAMA CREATED THE SEQUESTER HIMSELF!

We have already raised taxes on the rich. We are out of rich. If you live in this country, and have all we are blessed with you should gladly pay taxes, even the poor. The idea that we should demonize the successful is disgusting. It is also disgusting that the poor should have what everyone else has without lifting their lazy fingers.

The Obama promised Pelosi that he would make the spending reductions as painful as possible. Agenda Madness is JOB ONE in the Obama White House. That is why he failed to keep his promise to deal with spending after the Jan tax increases,. Boy, did he fool the American people who trusted him with the power of office.

This is all being orchestrated by Obama for the final show down between the American People and and the United Nations (New World Order).

http://youtu.be/ww2mxjDVmqg

3 years ago I started telling people to arm themselves and get properly trained. At that time I also said to stockpile ammo. Over the past 6 months the government has been very busy buying up all of the ammo. So now I am advising people to buy themselves a shotgun or 2 and start stockpiling shotgun shells for their shotguns.

These false flag attacks on our rights is going too far. I mean trying to ban assault rifles. Give me a break. Law abiding citizens are unable to acquire a true assault rifle. Yes they are able to buy something that looks like an assault rifle only they are semi-automatic and not full auto like every other hunting rifle. Then there is the restriction on the number of rounds a hand gun can hold. These are only mean to set us up for the illegal take over by the U.N..

Now is the time to get ACTIVE by joining our movement to save the Constitution and the Republic it created by go to my Fan Page and LIKE it.

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.
