Sequester This! President Obama´s
Colossal Media Blunder

Forbes, by Bill Frezza

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/28/2013 5:53:49 AM

President Obama has gone all-in trying to get Republicans to blink and serve up another round of tax increases in lieu of the looming spending sequester. Eschewing talks with Congress or any pretense of leadership, he is instead flying around the country burning $180,000 an hour on Air Force One laying out a parade of horribles that will descend upon us if the growth of federal spending were reduced by one iota. Why is he doing this? Because the mainstream media are lapping it up. Poisoned meat coming to grocery shelves near you! Air traffic grinds

Our federal government is seriously broken. They and our clueless journalists are in a tizzy about $83 billion in budget "cuts".

If you had a $3,800 budget and you "lost" $83, what would you do? Spend the other $3,717? Of course.

The federal budget, according to base-line budget, would grow to $3,810 billion AFTER the $83 billion was taken away. This is a MASSIVE scam, not a massive budget "cut".

A good start would be to get rid of the baseline budget idea and the notion of any automatic increase. Then a cut would be a cut and we would be done with this hypocritical crying demagoguery as we have today over a 2 % reduction in the rate of increase. After trillions in real increases doubling the spending, this is not yet a real cut! GOP caving to this hysteria and lies must end or all the disasters Obama predicts will happen for real. Another fact is that even Obamas beneficiaries in the public sector will be destroyed by a total collapse just like the private sector is now being destroyed. Wake up!

Every working person in the US took a 2% decrease in their take home pay on Jan. 1st.

Their world did not come to an end. They tightened their belt and did the best for themselves and their families.

If this bloated government cannot sustain itself with 2% less of our money then we are truly doomed.

In the real world we do zero based budgeting where you constantly review whether expenditures are still necessary.

We have a real cabal here. There is a willful political party that wants to spend and grow government at all cost. There is also a majority of the press supporting that party, making it hard to overcome.

The employees of this spend-at-all-cost government are also duplicitous in the engagement. So this is a pretty tough hill to climb.

Those of us who are outsiders trying to restrain the insiders growing government for their own personal gain are at disadvantage.

I think that galvanizing the Tea Party movement in a serious manner is the best way to break the socialist/commy political shift. Also, Breitbart-style media control is also very helpful.

There are still more of us than of them. On a personal note, I´m going to have to call out even members of my own family for being Obama supporters. We each must do the same.

Also, what post #9 said. Median household income down 4$k, healthcare costs up 2.6$k and this clown CAN´T find ANYwhere to cut?

As always,the Democrats are playing the long game, if there is this much angst and discomfort over an $85 Billion INCREASE, will anyone in the future have the strength to attempt an actual cut? I doubt it. Harry Reid actually fought to retain the $25k for the Cowboy Poetry Festival, how will it ever be possible to cut NPR,ACORN (it´s still there, don´t kid yourself)Planned Parenthood and the rest. The Dems know the Republicans don´t have the wherewithal to fight to the death over ever dime the way they do.

#5. I stayed tuned for the clip, and it´s true! Obama DID backpedal ...

Obama gave a speech yesterday in which he drastically changed his doomsday rhetoric -- this is my paraphrase (not verbatim):

You may not notice anything from the sequester, unless you work in the Pentagon or if you´re a family waiting for your child to get a slot in Head Start ... but make no mistake, the sequester will hurt the economy ...

#20, the food stamp EBT fiasco, that we the taxpayers afford is a good place to start trimming. At a local bakery in our town, women come in with EBT cards and do not buy day old bread or basics, no, they order 100 dollar cakes for kid´s parties. On one such order the EBT patron was not satisfied that the $100 Cinderella cake had enough glitter on the frosting so threw it against the wall and demanded a new one. And they complied. I don´t believe this was the intent of food stamps or EBT but some of these have scams that run up $5k balances on their cards. How is this possible? But we will hear how they are starving it we cut as little as $1.

My question is why aren´t Republicans countering Obama´s "rallies of lies" with ads on TV that give the kind of easily understood examples like the one Poster #4 gave? Spend some money to actually do something to save the country instead of saving it for the re-election of the folks that got us into this situation.

I know I beat this dead horse regularly but when will the RNC realize there is more to politics than winning an election. How about just once debunk the lies of the democrats. You may just gain a few converts.

There´s no such thing as a "media blunder" for Obama. After the past four years, who could possibly assume such a ridiculous premise. The media will cover Obama 100%. If they look like they´re criticizing him, look again. It´s a setup for the next big coddle.

Yesterday Obama had a "meeting" with the House Republicans for SEVEN MINUTES. In other words, just long enough for him to claim that there was a meeting at which the Republicans refused to "compromise". He didn´t even try to convince them. Does this look as though the Republicans are caving? Does it even look as though they are being asked to do so? It seems to me Obama has given up on that and now is just settling for blaming them.

You would think this would open people´s eyes to just how much some depend on the government for their very existence. Obama has been going around touting just how this will bring the country to it´s knees with no food for children, no daycare for children, no education etc. etc. etc. The only thing that this will hurt are politicians who enjoy passing out goodies to the low information voters who think that government is the answer.

If Dick Morris and others are right, Fauxbama is flailing because he knows the economy is tanking and he wants to divert attention from his tax hikes (as cause) and instead fix attention on republicans re: the sequester.

My prediction: the press will still give him a pass for the next few years, but when it´s finally finished they´ll embrace the PIAPS, saying that she can solve our problems (problems they refused to discuss for eight years).

Reguardless of whet happens tomorrow, you can bet the farm the there will be some high visiablity actions for the public to see and that the dims already have ads ready to go Monday morning about how all of this is the fault of Republicans. And the Republicans will not have any response to the attacks. Happens every time.

I´m getting to to point that I really don´t trust the "leaders" of the Repubican party either. Just like Karl Rove, all they think of is finding people who are "electable". And they usually means some RINO or dim lite.

I look for CONSERVATIVES to support!

"we get to watch the leader of the Western world holding a busted flush..."

The obamaclown looks like a fool every other day but as long as very few laugh at him, the foolishness goes unnoticed.

Many people still give him the benefit of believing he has America´s best interests at heart when only our destruction is on his mind. The man has a sick mind and the sequester fiasco is just one more step on the way down.

Bamboozler and team are probably fighting against spending cuts as hard as they are because they can´t afford to give an inch, lest a protocol be set which is opposite of their goals.

The DC lefties pretty much have a zero tolerance on spending cuts, a digital value of "no", if you will. They are conditioning the republicans and American citizens, in more ways than one.

There are only absolute values in their world and no dissent must be allowed first and foremost, to maximize long term destruction to America. Sounds like Middle East dictators or communist nations, aye? Go figure.

Now that the truth about the sequester´s origin has come out via Bob Woodward, and zippy is being blamed, all of a sudden it´s no big deal.

If the Sequester goes into effect despite all of Obama´s herculean efforts, how will Obama continue to be viewed as a Messiah?

Messiahs don´t lose, especially to Republicans, whom Obama has spent his entire presidency sneering at for their lack of intelligence on every issue under the sun.

The only way the Democrat/MSM machine will be able to salvage Obama´s reputation as a superior being after his Sequester defeat will to force the issue out of the public consciousness as quickly as possible.

Blaming the Republicans would be a major error, since doing so would remind the public that the Republicans were smarter than Obama at a crucial time, and that Obama is not only a loser, but a sore and whiny one.

My take, say all you want about the pubbies appearance of being in disarray. To some extent, they are. But, dont lose view of the dims. In their case, it is not the appearance of being in disarray, they are in disarray. I dare say that Obie´s hidden worry is that this year´s sequester and subsequent sequesters will put his ObieCare at risk of collapse. Imagine that.

When you think about it, the pubblies displaying disarray, whether true or not is the perfect cover for letting Obie stew in his own fat.

Obie owns the sequester. I doubt it will be all that hard to chop a few government travel junkets and other pork out of the spending plan. Only question is whose pork gets chopped out of the budget first after Obie gets done blowing away tax dollars on his AF-1 sequester circus.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When Oprah Winfrey served on a Chicago jury in 2004, she couldn’t go to the bathroom attached to the jury room unless her fellow jurors sang to drown out the noise. One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C. E.´ by Justice, and some Maroon 5 song. That was my poop playlist. It had to be a ritual or else I would focus too much on if there were other girls

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
