Sequestration: Obama
trapped by his own tactic

Washington Times, by James Valvo

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/28/2013 10:22:48 PM

President Obama is riding a pretty long, unbroken streak of policy victories that is scheduled to come to an end this week. The $85 billion sequester that will reduce spending by a scant 2.4 percent marks the first serious misstep by a president who is overseeing the largest expansion of federal government intervention in the economy in two generations. Mr. Obama has either expanded federal control or protected hard-fought gains during his time in office. He hasn’t gotten everything he wanted, to be sure, but this looks like his first step backward.

I can hardly believe the Republicans have not yet caved. Of course they still have a few more hours...

I´m not quite as optimistic as Mr. Valvo, but it´s a baby step in the right direction.

Just don´t cave, Republicans: Embrace it. The CR is the real fight - standing firm here will help set it up.

Its not a decrease in spending. Its a decrease in the rate of increase of spending.

Looks like his first step barackward? Is the writer kidding? So would that mean forward steps include $6 trillion in new debt, arming Mexican drug lords to kill hundreds, cash for clunkers, green energy bankruptcies, higher taxes, a stagnant economy, endless increases of welfare to the slothful, high unemplyment, incompetent Cabinet criminals, class warfare and the war on prosperity, a nonexistent work ethic, doubled gas prices, the downgrade, and the ghastly ZeroCare?

But hey, it´s after midnight on the east coast and the world hasn´t blown up yet, so what do you say we chop up some more budgets? Air Force One´s travel itinerary would be a good start.

If the GOP leaders fold on sequesteration they will never win on funding in March.

And if the House GOP can´t stick together nothing will be gained either tomorrow or later.

Despite his track record Boehner is the only chance of reining in Obama.

I´m worried about the sun coming up Sat. morning unless there´s a last minute deal to raise taxes.We´re liable to be struck by an asteroid because space observation has been cut.

USDA workers will get to sleep at home instead of on the job which could lead to poison horsemeat finding it´s way to grocery shelves..

They could lay off border agents along the Canadian border,even at the risk of Mexicans slipping through.

Obama overplayed his hand on this one. No doubt based on more bad advice from his handler ValJar. It won´t stop him. His entire plot falls apart if he can´t manage to get a huge tax increase. That is the wealth redistribution that will be his true legacy. Step one destroy the economy and add millions to the government dole. Step two make everyone else poor paying for it. He has no intention of giving up on that dream.

Obama is still the community organizer whose goal is to push those in power to do what they want. He doesn´t want to take responsibility so if Boehner caves in too fast he doubles down on his demands so there will be no agreement with his name on it. With this crisis even Boehner has learned not to deal with him. A leader takes responsibility and gives credit but Obama takes credit and gives responsibility - ( Blame to the GOP ). Obamas sequester scare strategy to resist cuts is no different than any municipal government cutting the most important government services first but leave the waste and bloat untouched. The disasters he predicts could actually happen if the spending he defends is not cut by much more that the 2% now at stake!

Where Obama missed this one is that those who take from the government don´t care about government employees they only care about the check or the EBT card they get. As long as the checks keep coming they could care less about the people behind the scenes or in other agencies that they don´t take from.

If his sequester deal had included cuts to food stamps and medicaid then the LoFo´s would be rioting. Since Obama dreamed up the sequester he didn´t want to propose cuts to those programs so he targeted the Republican sacred cows. The Republicans finally grew a pair and now he´s in a box.

Since Boehner and his bunch have a track record that is less than sterling, I expect they will, once again, cave at the last minute. A "group of" who have been working in secret will come riding to the rescue to save us all from the catastrophe that is coming. They will smile and sanctimoniously pat each other on the back for their bipartisan compromise. The media will cheer. All will be well. Obama will preen. Best of all, we get to do this all again and again because Obama will make sure he never runs out of crises.

I would bet that when Obama first cooked up this Sequestration scheme 5 or 6 months ago, he never in his wildest imagination thought that republicans would actually take him up on his bluff. After all, no one has ever believed his bluster in the past, have they?

This has been quite amusing to watch him dangle by his own petard. I have always wondered what that looked like. Now we all do. Imagine how bad this would be for him if the media wasn´t covering for him.

There´s not only cracks in the plan Obama pushed on the public, but cracks starting in the media. It might not come to anything, but it had to start sometime.

I don´t think there´s any way that the pubbies cave now. They are all up for re-election again too soon, and at some point they must realize, that unlike most of Obama´s lofo voters, theirs are paying attention.

Things aren´t looking too good. We have been sold out to: George Soros, the Saudis, Muslim Brotherhood with CPUSA going along with Obama´s agenda. We´ve been losing ground against communism since the 1950´s. The Republicans are the last line. Let´s hope they don´t cave. We need something to help turn the tide our way for a change.

No wonder Obama had his college records sealed, he never finished anything. Is this the new normal, having this financial debate come up every few months while the country suffers for other unresolved important matters? It´s really getting old and boring.

It has really taken a long time for Congressional Republicans to figure out Obama´s shenanigans.

Pubbies are like a rather homely girl who finds herself being courted by the captain of the football team. She wants, with all her heart, to believe he finds her interesting, when all he wants to do is _______(you fill in the blank).

Only when Ms Homely sees him laughing about her behind her back and snuggling up to the Prom Queen, does it dawn on her that he was only interested in her because she appeared "easy".

Once Ms Homely shakes herself out of her stupor and denial does she begin to fight back in ways that will let others know what a cad he is.

She has vowed to herself that others will learn that the smart guy, who played skillfully for years and was a loyal team member who loves his school, should have become the captain of the team. They will see that this fancy-pants, showoff, who only played in a few games and didn´t really play all that well, is just fancier than the smart/loyal guy.

If they hold firm than all bad economic news from this day forward will be blamed on the Republicans for not compromising to aviod the sequester.

The Obama administration is set to unveil new procedures that will greatly expand the government’s ability to verify the income of Americans who seek government subsidies under the federal health care law. “We’re going to be sampling 100 percent. There’s new information,” Gary Cohen, deputy director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told the House Ways and Means Committee on Thursday. He made his assurances after Chairman Dave Camp, Michigan Republican, aired concerns that enrollees in state health exchanges will self-certify their income. The administration would have to cross-check

As they prepared to head home for summer vacation, House Republicans fired off three subpoenas Thursday seeking more information from the State Department on the terrorist attack last year in Benghazi, Libya, and on the science the Environmental Protection Agency used to impose new clean air regulations. The parting shots come amid a week of bitter partisanship that saw both the House and Senate fail to pass transportation spending bills, and saw each side point the finger at the other in arguing that Congress is broken.

Lost in all the rancor among Republicans over the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs has been this: A similar ideological divide has been exposed in the Democratic Party that could pose even more political difficulties for President Obama. Several Democrats from the party’s civil liberties wing — the mirror image of the Republicans’ rising libertarian strain — met with Obama and Republican lawmakers Thursday at the White House to discuss concerns about the NSA’s phone data collection program and elements of the administration’s broader surveillance effort.

It may not fully make up for President Obama’s gutting of America’s manned spaceflight program, but for now it will have to do. Star Trek’s Galileo, the fiberglass shuttlecraft featured on the “The Galileo Seven” episode of the classic ’60s sci-fi series, was officially unveiled Wednesday at Space Center Houston, the official museum/visitor center of NASA´s Johnson Space Center, where it will remain on permanent display. If nothing else, the Galileo development program proved far less costly than NASA’s $9 billion next-generation space program, Constellation, which fell victim to Mr. Obama’s budget ax in 2010.

President Obama, who extolled the value of middle-class construction jobs during nearly five years of recession and recovery, has changed his tune to borderline contempt for the blue-collar jobs needed to build the Keystone oil pipeline. In a speech in Chattanooga, Tenn., Mr. Obama actually chuckled derisively Tuesday when he mentioned that Republican lawmakers are promoting the pipeline project for the thousands of jobs it would create over two years. “They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs,”

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
