Obamaquester

Yep, that’s exactly what it is and should be called. Don’t think for one minute this will go well. Another epic fail Obamadea to be politicized and guided through by the Obamadministration.

“The red herring of ‘letting the Pentagon choose the cuts’ being okay is baloney,” added Bucci, director of the Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation.

“It will not ever be done [without] politics, so it would end up eliminating all the programs the administration hates,” such as “missile defense, nuke modernization, and new ships,” Bucci explained.

The Army is emphasizing the economic impact sequestration will have on many states still struggling to recover from high unemployment rates.

“These mandated sequester reductions affect more than 1,000 companies in more than 40 states as they reduce their workforces,” the Army states in its talking points.

Nothing like cutting thousands of jobs in an already shaky economy. Obamanomics has worked so well for the country, so, just keep doubling down on the same ol same ol, get zero results, and do the same thing over and over. But, BO promises, he’s going to look into that whole unemployment thing, just as soon as he passes his “amnesty for illegal aliens”.  Just another “shiny object” to avoid addressing the real issue that is plaguing Americans. JOBS!

“Military family members always have loads of jobs around installations,” said one military expert who requested anonymity to openly discuss the sensitive issue. “Many of those will disappear when the cuts go into effect.”

The sequestration is expected to have a destructive immediate and long-term economic impact, according to the Army’s preliminary estimates.

A “hiring freeze” is likely to be imposed almost immediately and temporary employees would be released from their jobs.

The Army has provided “termination notice to an estimated 1,300 Temporary/Term employees and directed an Army-wide hiring freeze,

Nothing to concern ourselves about, we have “illegal aliens” to save from the R-words. Our military, defense preparedness, military families and, slashing the defense budget as ordered and written into law by Obama, has to take a backseat out of compassion for “illegal aliens”.

“How do you go to somebody in the military who’s been deployed four or five times . . . and say, ‘For your good work over the last decade, we’re going to ruin the military; we’re going to make it harder for you to have the equipment you need to fight, and we’re going to reduce benefits to your family?’” Sen. Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.), a vocal opponent of the sequester, told the Washington Post in January.

This will come back to bite Obama in the ass…..he’s already asking for a “short term fix”,  after he was stupid enough to sign into law the Obamaquester. Can’t make this stuff up.

    • Cat’s out of the bag on that one. Wonder how many other madmen have tried the Helter Skelter ploy of committing an atrocity then blaming a group they oppose?

      • He was going for Civil War….just unbelievable the extent some will go to

    Just a thought on MO’s visit to Chicago for the slain girl’s funeral; the story is that she was a victim of random violence as a group of innocents found shelter during a rain storm.
    It’s always a tragedy when a young person dies, no matter what the circumstance and her death is no more worthy of attention by the FirstCouple than the other 500+ killed last year in Chicago. If a young person was killed in gang warfare, the tragedy is doubled by the death and the need of young people to be in a gang.
    I’m sure the parents of those killed by gang warfare were as devastated by their loss as the young girl’s parents that Michelle sought to comfort.

    The problem isn’t the guns, it’s why they shoot each other. Why do Blacks join the gang in the first place and why they shoot each other should be the focus in Chicago.

    • Good idea for some research into that problem….lots of studies and reasons for the proliferation of gang members.

  2. Waivers for the elite….
    “President Barack Obama’s newly-named nominee to run the Department of the Interior, REI CEO Sally Jewell, sought and received a waiver from Obamacare requirements for her outdoor clothing and equipment company in 2011.”
    and this…REI received an Obamacare waiver around the same time that nearly 20 percent of the businesses in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district received waivers.

  3. Playing political gamesmanship on the backs of Americans….can these Progs stoop any lower….vid @ the link

    It is well known that the sequester was the Obama Administration’s idea promoted during the July 2011 debt-ceiling negotiations. The sequester includes $1.2 trillion in mandatory cuts – half from the military, half from domestic programs. The deadline for the sequestration is March 1, 2013. Now that we are closing in on the date of impact the Democrats are finally admitting it was just a political ploy and they were never really serious about these cuts… or any other cuts to the budget.
    It was just a game to them.

  4. 25 years as a poll worker? she KNOWS she broke the law

    • Waiting for 2012

      she knows, and she doesn’t care. Arrogant b. And Bamster’s “right” to sit as President? Wonder how many free Obamaphones she nabbed for her peeps?

      • Well, the ‘obamaphones’ are being cut here…too many peeps lying about their circumstances to get them ….lots of fraud in that too.

  5. More racist allegations from Dims….

    “So is it racist to cut jobs in an organization that disproportionately employs minorities or is it racist to even have an organization that disproportionately supports minorities?

    Should we continue maintaining a massive organization that has a diminishing function in the age of the internet simply because it disproportionately employs minorities?”

    Rep Cummings thinks so…..minorities were often hired in the public sector to help them rise to the middleclass…..when public layoffs are forced onto gov entities, minorities are affected disproportionally….So?

      rac·ism (rszm)
      n.
      1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
      2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

      How, by any twisting of the facts, is reducing the work force of a certain enterprise that is losing money considered “racist”?
      Is the Congressman going to tell Black people that they lost their jobs because White people don’t like them, or think they’re stupid?
      I’m so sick of the race hustlers, the race blame game, and feel sorry for Black people who blame their losses on their skin color and not bad luck, poor management, lack of education, or market forces.

      • So, are the people who cry “racism”, who believe the color of someone’s skin entitles them to keep jobs that are becoming obsolete the real “racists”?
        It’s beginning to look that way…..no one’s job is guaranteed in the ‘Age of Obama’

  6. States cutting hours to avoid the cost of Obamcare…..

    In Ohio, Youngstown State University recently announced a 29-hour-per-week part-time limit, and placed employees on notice that they would be fired if they worked more than the maximum. Other public universities are doing the same across the nation, just as their private-sector counterparts are limiting part-time hours to avoid the Obamacare rule.

    “As the economic reality of Obamacare begins to bite, Democrats are uneasy with the legislation they forced through Congress in 2010, and which survived at the Supreme Court only because Chief Justice John Roberts saw fit to rewrite it. At a recent retreat for House Democrats, former President Bill Clinton advised his party to lead the way in pushing for changes to Obamacare, so they could “[p]rove that we were right to do it.”

      You bet the Dems are “uneasy” about Obamacare. If the Repubs had any gumption they could start to pick away at the worst provisions until they have only a shell left and then let it die. It is a colossal fail, they know it and they are going to get blamed for it. In 2014 for sure.

  7. That’s some “hero” the lefties are feeling for…..wonder how they’ll feel when he kills kids and women…will the Facebook pages still call him a “hero”?

    Jesse Jackson (pseudo-Reverend) feels his pain too.

      It’s actually sickening to me. I didn’t believe it at first, but it’s true.
      What has happened to people here in the US?

    To view this another way, how comfortable are most folks with say, medical schools and law schools having quotas ? Probably not so much, when they need a doctor or lawyer in an emergency. How I wish we could drop the word Race from the vocabulary.

    • Drop most of us off in the country of origin….not many would be able to function, no matter what race we are.

      • They would have to quarter my parts and drop the remains by airlift.
        I’m always aware that half of the doctors graduated at the lower fifty percent of their class.
        I’m not a fan of quotas, I’m a fan of ability. My sister doesn’t like my point of view, saying that because I’m good at what I do, so I’m hard hearted at those that need help. I spent a lot of work and time to become good at what I do. There’s no such thing as natural talent, you need to work at it.
        It should be ability and drive that make the grade, no matter who you are and where you came from.
