Sequester Spite Cuts
The Boyz from the Chicago Hood want to inflict as much damage as they possibly can so their message can’t be contradicted. Petty Preezy and his thugs are going to make sure their message of hate and ugly reaches as many people as possible and affects as many people as possible to prove their sequester idea will be as horrible as they can possibly make it. The first time this administration has been “transparent” since 2008 with such pathetic political one-up-man-ship. They really do think you’re stupid. Internal email wants nothing done that will contradict what Preezy insists will happen.
An internal government email sent Monday instructed an official with a subdivision of the U.S. Department of Agriculture to make sure that sequester-related cuts inflict as much pain as possible to make sure “you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.” [snip]
Lawmakers say the email is further evidence that the Obama Administration is seeking to inflict maximum pain for the minimal $85 billion in cuts.
“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the Sequester cuts for political gain,” said Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AK).
BO’s approval rating is hitting the skids according to Politico.
President Obama’s job approval rating took a hit over the weekend, falling to its lowest level in the Gallup three-day average since his reelection.
His approval rating was 46 percent between Feb 29 and March 2, down from 53 percent a week earlier.
Since his drop in approval BO will get even more nasty. His goal is to neuter the R-words in Congress (the House) and push his progressive agenda to assure his “legacy” with his “campaign of pain”
For perhaps the first time in the history of the United States, it is in the political interest of a president to inflict maximum pain on the American people. Obama could have spent the last 16 months preparing to mitigate sequestration’s impact on the American people, as any responsible manager would have. Instead, he has done the opposite, explicitly ordering government agencies not to prepare for the worst. And he has refused all Republican efforts to pass legislation that would minimize the sequester’s pain.
Here come the tell-all books. While the Telegraph carries the story, the Lame Stream American media does not.
Barack Obama is a “dithering” president whose controlling tendencies and extreme
risk-averse attitude to foreign policy has damaged US interests in the Middle
East, according to a new book by a senior former State Department adviser.
Vali Nasr, a university professor who was seconded in 2009 to work with Richard Holbrooke, Mr Obama’s special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, records his profound disillusion at how a “Berlin Wall” of domestic-focused advisers was erected to protect Mr Obama.
“The president had a truly disturbing habit of funnelling major foreign policy decisions through a small cabal of relatively inexperienced White House advisers whose turf was strictly politics,” Mr Nasr writes in The Dispensable Nation: America Foreign policy in Retreat.

The president convincingly won a second term in November, but since that time, the congressional Republican leadership has outfoxed, outmaneuvered and plain out-strategized him on just about every issue.
