Mr. Obama is getting exactly what he asked for. Maybe he thought that he could
"bluster" his way past the problem. Maybe he thought that Congress
would, once again, abdicate its responsibility to rein him in. Maybe he thought
that Harry Reid's refusal to even discuss a budget would force the House to
accept another tax and spend budget.He was wrong.The
credit card has hit its limit. There is no money available for his outrageous
programs. His inability to lead us out of a recession is his own doing, now all
of America will suffer while he parties with Tiger Woods on the golf course.
What a leader! What an example to our children! His only competition is Nero.
Mr. Obama wanted it and now he has it. Stop with crocodile tears. Maybe now he
will propose a budget plan that is not fantasy based.
@mike and hemlock So its Obamas fault that congress could not do their
job? good luck selling that to the public, oh thats right conservatives already
failed at that, we need look no further then the last election and their current
approval ratings in congress to see no one is buying it. It may be time for a
Well barack? happy?
This is exactly what republicons bargained for...So what's the
"Well barack? happy?"I am. it is time to call this bluff.
Tea Party wants draconian cuts to the budget, lets get it on. I feel bad for
those that will loose their jobs because of this, but I am safe where I work,
and it will not impact me. Most of my income comes from the energy sector, and
frankly I will be fine.So lets see where this goes. No one will
escape blame. You want no on everything.... lets jump down that rat hole head
first and see where it lands. Perhaps we will find economic nirvana - after
all - since the government has nothing to do with jobs, when contracts get
cancelled to Boeing, research and development dollars dry up to places like U of
U, and the shutter Hill AFB, it just will not impact anyone, because those
places don't generate any jobs.It's gonna be fun - I hope
they don't solve this problem, because I want to really see where this
lands us. Just maybe the Neocons are right, business will boom with the layoff
of several hundred thousand people....
@UtahBlueDevil,What you forget is whoever loses their jobs will
suddently turn Democrats(if they weren't previously), and suddently adopt
the victim mentality and demand that you start paying their bills and giving
them money for being unemployed. So even those of us with "unaffected
jobs" will be affected by the new Democrats.
Re: "Many . . . are resigned to sequestration as the least bad of the
options they have been given."It may be a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity!Liberals, having suckered themselves into this one, will
never again agree to cut spending. They've made that clear, demanding ever
more and larger "investment" in big-government toilets to flush our
resources down. And, they've re-verified their traditional soft-on-defense
stance by forcing defense cuts some three times the size of the rest of bloated
government.And, RINOs will never again have the nerve to call
liberals' bluff.So -- enjoy it while it lasts. We will probably
never see the likes of it again.
