Obama’s sequester deal-changer
Washington Post, by Bob Woodward

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 2/22/2013 8:15:52 PM

Misunderstanding, misstatements and all the classic contortions of partisan message management surround the sequester, the term for the $85?billion in ugly and largely irrational federal spending cuts set by law to begin Friday. What is the non-budget wonk to make of this? Who is responsible? What really happened? The finger-pointing began during the third presidential debate last fall, on Oct. 22, when President Obama blamed Congress. “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed,” Obama said. “It is something that Congress has proposed.”

The media have turned the tables on Obama on this in the last couple of days. Rush mentioned it too. Assuming that they never get tired of backing up his lies, it is curious. Something is up. Payback for ignoring them last weekend?

I was enjoying this article right up to the end when Woodward opined that Obama was well and right to ask for even more taxes.

It is unfortunate and sad that the press refuses to say LIE when they mean LIE. Only a few media folks say the President LIES when they are discussing the fact that he LIES. They will use any other less critical sounding synonym in their reporting - like FIB. A fib is what a kid does - a President LIES , when he does not tell the truth. Mr Levin tells it like it is- that Obama is a serial LIAR, a compulsive liar, a blatant liar . The facts are that in public statements he uses props to stand behind his LIES. He is lying when he says he did not support or approve of the sequester. Almost all of the media use another term, some almost endearing, like a mother telling her friends that her dear 6 year old lad tells fibs. Most of the media type, even those on Fox Cable Channel, etc- are cowards. Only a few state the facts, that President Obama is a public liar. They are all afraid of getting fired, even though they all have contracts.
They are disgraceful cowards who cannot tell the truth themselves for fear of retribution.
A da*n lie is a da*n lie so call it what it is, and the person telling it is a liar. These are all my opinion based on the news I see and hear. Sequestration was approved and supported by Obama, Neighbors, Lew, and Reid and those are facts learned through interviews and the public record by the media types.

Yeah, #6, but this is not as easily ignored as some things are. First, it is WOODWARD (beatified and scheduled for sainthood by the dems for bringing down Nixon), and second, it is in the Washington Post! The WAPO, of all places! The WAPO just allowed their most famous reporter ever to call the democrat president, in its own pages, a LIAR. In the words of The Donald, ´This is YUGE!

I don´t think he´s a good liar so much as a constant one. Good liars do not tell whoppers that are easily disproved. The president is lucky that he has a press willing to protect him and hide his lies for him. If they are turning on him, it could send him into a narcissistic frenzy. Something to watch. Bring popcorn.

The House has passed two separate modifications of the across the board spending in the sequester where either satisfies the required cuts but priorities and choices are made. The senate has one since last May and another since, I believe, last November. Either can be changed and sent back to the House for Conference. However, just as in the case of the Budget for almost four years, the senate has done nothing. I suggested to my Congressman that the Sunday talkers show up for the Sunday Talk shows with either one or both of these bills as props. All of the horrors that the President is spouting are, "Not in this Bill" and physically touch the Bill(s). When asked about a "Balanced Approach", advise, after slamming their hands down on the bill(s), that they have just passed a massive tax increase and that this bill is the Balance.

Additionally, the President has the power to move funds around within the Defense and non-Defense portions of the Sequester but not between them. However, that would require the President to make a decision which is something he runs away from like a scalded dog.

This came out on a Friday, when Hi-Fos are less attentive from actually doing productive work, and Lo-Fos´ meager intellectual capacities are exhausted from wondering all week what Yes We Did means.

So, it´s debatable if this is an opening salvo, a warning shot, or Woodward pi$$ing in the wind.

Obama´s aura of assumed brilliance and invincibility is dependent totally on one thing: the unlimited credit card he´s managed to extort from Congress. Once they stop upping his spending limit, it´s over.

This is a major showdown. If the Republicans play their cards right (not a given for the Stupid Party), this can be the start of the unraveling of Obama´s feigned superiority.

#12 has a point. I would love to see the House do its job and stop certain funding in a major way. This would get O´s attention and rein in the "feigned superiority."

He has no superiority at all, but only the illusion of it. He´s smelly and dull and the only one in the room that doesn´t realize it. It´s actually a mental illness.

Presidents are forced to resign or get impeached for lying to the people. Neither of these will happen to Obama but he can be told to go to his room and stay there until his term is over. He must be neutralized and blocked every step of the way until he is out.

Woodward´s piece is about fixing blame for cuts that will not happen. You´ve got to love Rush´s strategy. He says on his radio show "For the first time in my life I´m ashamed of my country" and every media flak in the country rushed to read the transcript. The hope was to catch him in another Fluke brouhaha. Instead they learned about baseline budgeting and how we will still be spending billions more than last year AFTER the sequester. The media´s attitude towards Obama´s hyperbole changed overnight. It will interesting to see what happens on the Sunday talk shows.

Obama is nothing less than a brilliant tactician with Marxist socialist philosophy. He is deftly implementing every word of Saul Alinsky´s famous tome, using a clear cups and balls magic trick method in front of a completely inept and constantly befuddled GOP. Obama is not alone in his accomplishments as he requires a majority of fidiot voters and he certainly has that (and will have forever thanks to Bill Ayers, et al) along with a Fourth Estate that thinks exactly as he thinks and believes that truth, facts and data are totally irrelevant. That Bob Woodward allowed himself to trip accidently into a firm grasp of the obvious is no good news either. Sadly, the consequences of Woodward´s piece will be exactly nothing. The GOP, donning their Depends, will still fall down, roll over and bravely soil themselves, losing another issue yet again.

This may be in the WaPo today, but a lot of people - older people - still read the Sunday paper, and it´ll likely get picked up for tomorrow´s op-eds.

As already said, Woodward carries a lot of credibility weight with older generations, who remember but don´t necessarily have the time to peruse the web. Bring in the big Sunday paper, scan the headlines, read the local stuff, and head for the opinions page.

Obviously, he didn´t realize when he wrote his book that what he put in there about this idea coming directly from Obama and Lew and the other guy I don´t want to know, was a backfire waiting to happen. I´m sure he assumed that it would be another Obama credit point.

But he has to follow up on his own work now to keep his credibility. I suspect other, younger, urinalists will now start to find him ´getting old´.

I still think this is a CYA moment for some of these dupe/dopes in "journalism." Their tiny brains have been bludgeoned by the blunt instrument that is Obama for 6+ years and they are finally waking up to that fact. Time to back up a bit and squeal "Hey, it´s not our fault! See how we are questioning him, speaking truth to power? Don´t blame us!"

NO! NO! NO! Obambi must be removed from office and not given the imprimatur of the presidency for life. His laws, orders and dictums must be scourged from the annals of history. Think, people, of the damage he could still do to the country if he is allowed to complete this term. Think about it, please. Call for the courts to review the evidence of his illegitimacy. Do you want to see his image on Mt Rushmore? Do you want him to finagle a third term? Be careful...very careful, people

And if you do, why don´t we demand from our conservative/republican honchos that we need conservative mainstream media?
Because right at this moment each and every local newspaper/tv-station is spewing the lies WH tells them to spew!
And don´t underestimate the power of propaganda! The fascist germany/commie russia are the proof of that.

#s 15 and 16 make a good point.

If only more Republicans would break out of their meek self-restraint and speak the truth. They allow the Dem/Lefties (in cahoots with the media) to perpetrate lies and obfuscations.

So is it really a surprise that most Americans fall into the "low information voter" category? How many of these people would ever bother to read this article, for example?

For a Constitutional Republic, this state of ignorance is dangerous. DeToqueville noted the essential civic-mindedness of the new Citizens of the United States. This means that the citizenry must be involved, to the greatest extent of their ability.

Also critical was the proximity of government to the people. In other words, people were aware of the connection between their decisions/votes and government because it was local. And they had much greater control over the affairs of the community.

The Federal part of government was very circumscribed, limited.

Now, note how DC-centric government is! And note also how programs are "paid for" by The Government, an inanimate entity which grows like a malignancy.

Woodward demonstrates his skills as a writer and a journalist (a real one)... but it will take more than this to penetrate the entertainment-soaked brains of too many of our fellow citizens.

One hundred+ years of Progressives´ attempts to upend this Constitutional Republic will be difficult to undo. But to quote Churchill, we must never give up.

Even when the administration gets caught red handed in a lie it´s still the Republican´s fault. "The Republicans made me do it!"

And when a liberal catches and reports them in obvious lies they still must add the obligatory "but the Republicans are not blameless" as sort of a penitence for reporting bad news about other liberals. A liberal is never at fault alone. They´re either dead right or a Republican made them be wrong.

Even during the past four years of Obama-induced economic stagnation, old liberal dinosaurs like the Washington Post have not been able to stem the tide of diminishing readership and ad revenues.

Now that Obama´s towering debt has made it necessary for him to take some sort of action, which he has chosen to do by raising taxes, the economy is doing what it always does when money is taken out of private citizens´ hands -- going into a recession because buying power has receded.

So how is the Washington Post, which is already tottering on the edge of solvency, supposed to make it through a recession as retail companies have less and less money to spend on newspaper ads?

Maybe Bob Woodward has finally decided to tell the truth about Obama on the Washington Post´s pages, so that when this once-respected newspaper goes out of business soon, at least a few intelligent people will actually mourn its passing.

After you are finished with reviewing the articles on this site, you might be interested in another that you or may not look at. The Canada Free Press online has some recent powerful articles about our President. One entitled "Obama´s Speeches Chilling"by J>D> Longstreet and the second printed today entitled " Obama-Marxist Revolutionary " by Michael Oberndorf. One does not have to understand much more than the content of these articles to understand
the trouble we are in. Notwithstanding what they do not cover.

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

Ezekiel Emmanuel´s Reaper Curve

Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
