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.

GOP Congressman Gohmert has decide what is fair for us is fair for BO and has introduced an Amendment to stop BO from golfing until the White House tours are re-instated. From the Zipwire

Amendment

If you want to call and thank him:  202-225-3035

Tag Teaming Obama, read it all and smile.

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.

  1. Definition of sequester….

    “a 650 pound Uncle Sam eating more and more of tax payer resources every day and being told its time to go on a diet and lose some of the useless fat that makes him morbidly obese before he drops dead with his face in the through.[trough]

    Remedy….
    “Republicans are offering to let him choose what he gives up, the Bon Bons, Twinkies, or the Fried Bacon Butter Burger. Michelle would approve. He can still eat his arugula. “Let’s Move.”

  2. In many schools, the middle school safety patrol kids earn a trip to DC for their service. They will miss touring the WH at an age where they can still be inspired by symbols of their country. What a shame.

    • According to Mary Madelin all tours are conducted by “volunteers”….closing the people’s house to the people is spiteful political nastiness, nothing more.

      • Well, it’s one way for the Obamas to get rid of the nasty little reminders of whose house it really is. How dare the great unwashed desire to venture into ‘their’ house?
        I imagine Mooch wiping her hand off with a sneer is she accidentally touches a banister that the peasants might have touched before her.

        • Haha- I accidentally described a modern day Lady MacBeth- my apologies to the Macbeths!
          “All the perfume in Arabia will not sweeten this big ole shovelly pastry grubbing hand!”
          (On a side note: I recommend Highly! Patrick Stewart’s performance of Macbeth, you can see it free online at PBS, “Great Performances”- you paid for it, you might as well enjoy it! It has some odd tremblings of today’s world in its interpretation, Lady Macbeth
          even wears a single shouldered dress’ partying while atrocities go on.)

  3. Name one program BO has cut….he has cut nothing, just talked

  4. Some things just speak for themselves…

    “DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano warned this week of long lines at US airports due to the Obama sequester. Yet, at the same time, she blew $50 million on uniforms for TSA.
    CNS News reported:

    The impending sequester did not prevent the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from acting in late February to seal a $50-million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents–uniforms that will be partly manufactured in Mexico.”

    Yippee Chavez is smelling sulfur in hell with his best friend, the Devil. Hurray!

    • There has to be a special place in hell for dictators….

      • The ninth circle is reserved for gluttony, I wonder if it includes power as well as food?

        • I think amassing 2 billion in personal fortune off the backs of the populous is definitely gluttony

    • It’s not going away…..hope it devours the thugs politically

  6. I knew it….drone strikes on US citizens are upheld by Holder…so BO says “kill them” and it’s done….WTF!!?? no warrant, no trial,

    • Go Rand Paul! Talk them into oblivion if you must!

      • Eight hours and counting. . .Go Rand, go!!

      • with a little help from his friends…Rubio, Cruz, Cornyn and even a Dem got in the act…..YAY!!!

  7. Muddled message, lying Preezy
    “One top Democratic Congressional aide slammed the Obama administration’s muddled messaging to Politico:

    “Don’t accentuate a fight you don’t intend to wage [and] can’t win. … They spent two weeks building up sequester as a horror show and then got fact-checked a dozen times and were forced to back off their own claims of it being a disaster once they were forced to acquiesce to the cuts happening.”

  8. Great news!! Only 20% of our income is going to taxes…. 😦

    • I’m with you at 20%…only mine isn’t income, it’s my life savings that they get. Dang, really ticks me off!

      • I’m not exactly happy either. Glad it wasn’t more. Took every single deduction possible.

  9. “A young girl’s social power club gathering”…this is what 14 year old jet setters do? I can’t help but wonder who paid for the flight to NYC…

    • “Randpage”… LOL 😀
      Drudge headline

  11. Sen. Rand Paul just offered to end his filibuster and allow a vote on CIA nominee John Brennan if he could get a vote tomorrow on a non-binding resolution regarding drone killing of US citizens on US soil. But Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin objected to allowing a vote on the resolution. So Paul resumed speaking.

    Paul’s resolution said it was the sense of the Senate that “the use of drones to execute or target American citizens on American soil who pose no imminent threat clearly violates Constitutional rights” of due process.
