Obama warns ´people will lose jobs´
if budget cuts take effect next
week as he urges Republicans
to accept higher taxes

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/19/2013 4:35:22 PM

President Obama warned on Tuesday that ´people will lose their jobs´ and ´the unemployment rate might tick up again´ if steep budget cuts take effect next week. He urged Republicans to agree to a plan proposed by Senate Democrats that would partially offset $85 billion in ´sequestration´ cuts scheduled to take effect next week through new tax revenues. ´So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations,´ Obama said. ´So the burden is all on the first responders, or seniors or middle class families.´

Comments:
While the topic itself is of great interest and comment, please look at the photos. In some of them you see Obama with very sleepy, heavy-lidded eyes. I did notice this on photos of him returning from vacation yesterday but put it down to his golf marathon. At best I´d guess a bit of Botox but at worst. . . .

Obama´s on auto-pilot: "So far at least, the ideas that the Republicans have proposed ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or the biggest corporations"

This is not substantive. This is usual blather.

Rain Man recited ´Who´s On First?´ as his little calming mantra when he got agitated.

Similarly, Obama (and Reid and Pelosi and the filth known as Keith Ellison) can´t talk about any serious subject without invoking firemen, policemen, teachers and any other job commonly found as a Fisher Price toy figure. Kids starve, seniors die, etc. etc. It´s beyond insulting and infantile - it´s laughable. But morons aren´t known for their sense of humor.

I have read that these are not cuts, only reductions from the "baseline" which assumes an increase. Hope I am wrong and these are real cuts.

Didn´t we just have a massive wave of tax increases which will provide more revenue (at least on progressive paper)? Oh, that´s right, he´s already spent that.

Blame Obama.
No one disputes the fact that no one wanted sequestration, or that ultimately a bipartisan vote in Congress led to passage of the Budget Control Act. But the president categorically said that sequestration was “something that Congress has proposed.”
Woodward’s detailed account of meetings during the crisis, clearly based on interviews with key participants and contemporaneous notes, make it clear that sequestration was a proposal advanced and promoted by the White House.
In sum: Gene Sperling brought up the idea of a sequester, while Jack Lew sold Harry Reid on the idea and then decided to use the Gramm-Hollings-Rudman language (which he knew from his days of working for Tip O’Neill) as a template for sequester. The proposal was so unusual for Republicans that staffers had to work through the night to understand it.
Oddly, Lew in Tampa on Thursday, publicly asserted the opposite: “There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger…. [It] was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure at the end.”

This prompted Woodward to go over his notes and interviews once again, to make sure he had gotten it right.

“After reviewing all the interviews and the extensive material I have on this issue, it looks like President Obama told a whopper,” Woodward said. “Based on what Jack Lew said in Florida today, I have asked the White House to correct the record.”
We had been wavering between Three and Four Pinocchios. But in light’s of Lew’s decision to doubledown on Obama’s claim, we agree it’s a whopper.
Four Pinocchios

The fact is, jobs are going to be lost anyway and that´s why Obama is not even trying to avoid this. He needs it to cover his behind as we go back into recession.

"Unemployment rate might tick up,again" is code that the unemployment rate is going up no matter what the sequestration does. As rate rises to 8.5% from 7.9%, Obama will blame GOP for this rather than his policies and the economic uncertainty he creates.

As to first responders standing behind the messiah, they will be receiving pensions 2 to 3 times the average annual wages of American workers, with their health care paid by taxpayers. They are confident that Obama will bail out the bankrupt state & muni pension that will be paying them $135,000 per year pensions. As always, the joke is on us.

Same old FUD. The nation will collapse if you cut one public employee. And if it is a unionized public employee the whole world disolves into anarchy.

And layoff a defense worker? Sure enough, we eill br invaded next week.

I don´t care anymore. Let´s find out.

The fact is that Democrats almost totally control Washington. The GOP House can´t pass anything and it can´t stop an EO and it cannot block an appointment and it can´t stop the executive departments or even get honest anwers from them.

The House can´t even stop O from killing people with Drones, in the US or elsewhere. And Holder totally controls the DOJ. Nothing will happen Obama dislikes.

What happens will be 99% Obama´s wishes. There is no political or moral reason why the GOP should abet this administration.

I said this before the Republican should fold on the economy, let the dumbocrats OWN the economy. More revenue will only rake even more money out of the private sector leaving less for us to spend on things, slowing the economy, slowing the amount of tax revenues the government actually takes in and making matters worse, it´s the Republican only chance to retake the senate in 2014 and the white house in 2016.

Israel says it has seized a ship carrying advanced Iranian weapons made in Syria that was heading towards Gaza. The Panamanian-flagged vessel was boarded by Israeli naval commandos in the Red Sea off the coast of Sudan, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said. They found M-302 surface-to-surface missiles that were flown to Iran before being loaded onto the ship, it added.

Her health deteriorated rapidly and doctors struggled to find what was wrong with her, despite a barrage of tests for neurological conditions and cancer.

Passenger planes could soon be equipped with Star Wars-style lasers which would shoot down a terrorist´s missiles. Israel´s Ministry of Defence has announced that the SkyShield system developed by defence contractor Elbit Systems had successfully completed tests and has been certified for commercial use. SkyShield uses laser technology and a thermal camera to deflect incoming missiles--after a threat is detected it fires a laser to disrupt the missile´s navigation system, taking it off course and detonating a safe distance from the aircraft. It also operates completely automatically. The futuristic defence was first ordered in 2002 by then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
