    Pres Obama Using Sequestration For Political Gain

    Charles Krauthammer wrote a column in the Washington Post that exposes Pres. Obama as a man whose goal it is to inflict as much sequestration pain on the American public so that that same public, with the lacky press assisting, will blame the Republicans and turn the House back to the Dems so his no cuts/all taxes agenda can be enacted. He has NO INTEREST in curbing spending or reducing the deficit. Great piece - know you'll love it. Here's a couple of gems

    A 2011 Government Accountability Officereport gave a sampling of the vastness of what could be cut, consolidated and rationalized in Washington: 44 overlapping job training programs, 18 for nutrition assistance, 82 on teacher quality, 56 dealing with financial literacy, more than 20 for homelessness, etc. Total annual cost: $100 billion-$200 billion, about two to five times the entire domestic sequester.
    Are these on the chopping block? No sir.
    After all, the sequester is just one-half of 1 percent of GDP. It amounts to 1.4 cents on the dollar of nondefense spending, 2 cents overall.
    Because of this year’s payroll tax increase, millions of American workers have had to tighten their belts by precisely 2 percent. They found a way. Washington, spending $3.8 trillion, cannot? If so, we might as well declare bankruptcy now and save the attorneys’ fees.
    The problem with sequestration, of course, is that the cuts are across the board and do not allow money to move between accounts. It’s dumb because it doesn’t discriminate.Fine. Then change the law. That’s why we have a Congress. Discriminate. Prioritize. That’s why we have budgets. Except that the Democratic Senate hasn’t passed one in four years. And the White House, which proposed the sequester in the first place, had 18 months to establish rational priorities among accounts — and did nothing.
    When the GOP House passed an alternative that cut where the real money is — entitlement spending — President Obama threatened a veto. Meaning, he would have insisted that the sequester go into effect — the very same sequester he now tells us will bring on Armageddon

    Obama wasn't the one who was responsible for this... it was the House Republicans with their shitty 9% approval rating. And curbing spending during a time of recession is like inflicting more wounds on oneself. Being from Spain, I know what the austerity bullshit message going around would do to a country. The GOP and Krauthammer need to get a fucking reality check.

    And the ones that have no interest in reducing the deficit are those in the GOP... why is Obama getting all the blame from the Haiku poets on here?

    Face it, Austerity HAS NOT and NEVER WILL WORK during a recession. My home country shot itself in the foot over and over engaging the same type of right wing bullshit.

    Austerity is so awesome during a recession isn't it? Some just want this country to sell its soul to corporations... more than it already has been. Sequestration falls totally on the lap of the GOP. Lets look at the facts. They refused to negotiate. They played the crying baby. Still can't handle the massive loss they had at the polls. Obama didn't want to inflict anything on the American people. The republicans did with their shitty do nothing Congress.

    They are total and absolute embarrassments to this entire country. Stop blaming the President because it's getting tiring. It's FUCKING CONGRESS. Congress WRITES THE FUCKING BILL for the President to sign.

    *Yawn*

    What do you expect from someone who is a contributing editor for The Weekly Standard (The Neocon Bible) and is a nightly panelist on Fox News's Special Report with Bret Baier.

    He predicted Romney would win and he was mighty wrong on that too.

    Just more right wing hating of the President of the United States.

    Thanks for bringing that up, Bob. Krauthammer... here are some more gems of his perpetual bullshit:



    He put his foot in his mouth already. Try to watch this bullshit.. it starts off with bullshit and ends with it. They thought Pennsylvania was in play lol. He predicted Obama would lose the entire re-election.

    He got owned 4 days before the election.

    And watching this video... he looks like a moron who doesn't have a clue what government does. Hannity too... dumbass.

    Go to 5:25... and see his idiotic prediction. NOT even close buddy.

    Re: Pres Obama Using Sequestration For Political Gain

    I am not loyal to either party, but good question. Why doesn't the Senate with its Dem majority pass a budget? Tis true that Obama hung the sequester over the heads of his super budget comittee hoping to force his own appointed comittee members to find a solution, didn't work out for him. Truth is the House, Senate and Pres are all respondsible.
    They are politicians and everyone will blame everyone else.

    Why don't the republicans come to the table and negotiate? And lets not skirt the reality here... this falls on the Congress. They are the ones who write the bills. Not the President. The House of Representatives is one of the most out of touch and unpopular as far as polls goes... but I guess the blame always falls on the President lol? Is he a dictator now?

    Oh cry ME A RIVER. I gave a video of Krauthammer putting his own foot in his mouth and I don't care what award he paid for to get. Partisanship? The man is a political windbag for the right wing and was basically parroting Hannity. Uncomfortable about what? The fact that the republicans fucked over this country today and some here refuse to see it?

    You think I care about a pulitzer prize he should have never won? This isn't about "partisanship". I'm not a registered democrat. Try that failed attack somewhere else please!

    It's nice to see some are as out of touch as Charles Krauthammer is.

    The austerity caused by the sequestration is like you deciding to fill your own water bottle from the faucet instead of buying bottle water.

    You're intelligent enough to realize that a 3% cut in spending will not cause the catastrophic things that Obama has been proposing the last several weeks.

    Obama invented sequestration and was for it before he was against it.

    Maxine Water says 170 million jobs could be lost because of sequestration! Does she even know she's on the the planet earth? I doubt it.

    .. the crazy litany of losses due to sequestration continue.

    That doesn't make any sense... try again.

    Actually when it results in the cutting of millions from several states education budgets it will be catastrophic. Many of these states are already facing shortfalls in funding. I guess this is just one more of those inconvenient facts... but I guess we can all subscribe to the republican fantasy land crap. The cuts will be towards many federal programs, and it WILL badly affect states already facing shortfalls. Texas in particular will face a big funding cut.

    And yes, it will be catastrophic. But it's nice to see the republicans are back to their usual "oh it won't be so bad"... "it's all hype"... crock of crap.

    Obama invented sequestration and was for it before he was against it.
    Nonsense.

    Maxine Water says 170 million jobs could be lost because of sequestration! Does she even know she's on the the planet earth? I doubt it.
    Nobody cares what Maxine Waters says. But keep bringing up irrelevant people.

    The House has passed a budget the last 2 years. The Senate has not passed a budget in over 4 years.

    The President hasn't even provided a budget this year -- one that he is obligated to do by law. What's his problem?

    Re: Pres Obama Using Sequestration For Political Gain

    If Obama expects "political gain" from this event, it means he expects more Americans will approve of his actions and vote for him.
    Saying someone "expects political gain" is the same as saying he expects to "do the thing voters will approve of."

    I'm not sure why that is wrong in a free democracy.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    I 'm not buying scare tactics. Hence why I refuse to believe the right wing argument on here and the republican party as a whole. The republicans are lying to the entire nation again. And please spare me... come up with some original words.

    The cuts to the education budget throughout this country will be felt for years. But I guess having a society of uneducated idiots would be more suitable for the GOP. That would mean more voters.

    This, from the article, needs to be highlighted again . . . it's not conservative ideas -- it's from the GAO.

    A 2011 Government Accountability Office report gave a sampling of the vastness of what could be cut, consolidated and rationalized in Washington: 44 overlapping job training programs, 18 for nutrition assistance, 82 on teacher quality, 56 dealing with financial literacy, more than 20 for homelessness, etc. Total annual cost: $100 billion-$200 billion, about two to five times the entire domestic sequester.
    The 2011 GAO document link is in the article.

    Re: Pres Obama Using Sequestration For Political Gain

    I don't agree with the whole article, but it is true that Obama is playing some brilliant politics with this Sequestration thing.

    Let's not be delusional people. With the national budget, the Presidents budget team drafts up a budget for the government and delivers it to the Congress to act upon. The Congress usually looks through, makes some changes, adds some pork, etc and at the end of the day a budget is passed. This mess falls on both branches.

    With that being said, Congress sure is dragging it's heals along on this, and Obama is capatilizing brilliantly on the chance to ensure the Republicans continue to fail in this government. I figure let the sequestion start to go into effect and each party will come to the table truly for a talkie talk and make another temporary fix.

    One of the main problems is John Boehner. He is acting like Obama isn't on his last term. The man will be doing charity tours in a few more years and John Boehner will have destroyed his party. I know John John is still pissed how Obama played him last time by getting the tax increases he wants. And I doubt Obama is going to flinch this time either.

    It will be fun to watch it all play out. I mean, it will suck with all these people who will suddenly be struggling to pay bills and live, but that's what happens when you let politicians do what the fuck they please.

    The right wingers have failed at explaining the whole story.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-...spending-cuts/

    But the rest of the federal government will be cut by $85 billion this year, and more than $100 billion each of the nine years after that -- with the cuts split between defense and domestic spending. That translates into an 8 percent cut in Pentagon funding. Most domestic agencies will have to cut at least 5 percent from their ledgers.
    They only will look at this year, but do not look at the bigger picture and the long term consequences of these cuts. Thousands of teaching jobs could now be at risk. I guess creating a society full of dopes is optimal for the GOP.

    temporary funding for Head Start reverting back to normal... omfg, why do you want to keep America dumb?

    Arne Duncan already lied about teachers getting pink slips over the sequestration, so at this point I'm taking anything he says with a hefty grain of salt.

    but of course this is all political nonsense... if the GOP were truly interested in cutting the deficit, we'd be talking about reforming entitlement spending, not these nickle and dime issues.

    Republicans have been dragging their feet between the 2010 mid terms, and the 2012 POTUS elections hoping that by doing nothing that they might get some political traction on Obama.

    Nothing has changed.

    Even the 2012 Elections pretty much left all of the "players" intact.

    I don't know though.

    As much as Obama has been harping about the sequestration, and how it's going to "cut government spending" it seems like the Republicans are going to get what they want (less government), and the American Public seems to think (for now) that could be a good thing.

    I've been listening to NPR over the past couple of days, and their analysts have been talking about how bad this is going to hurt middle class Americans, and what they've been pointing out is that the current Federal Budget IS BLOATED.

    Personally?

    For me, when this shit starts getting political is (if and when) the Obama Administration starts agreeing to cuts that will MOST DIRECTLY affect Middle Class Americans, and THEN trying to blame that on Republicans.

    Either way I'm disgusted with the whole lot of them; and what passes for "leadership"(on both sides) in Washington these days.

    I'm more than certain that Charles Krauthammer isn't going to experience any real reality any time soon, and considering who his employers are he'll keep doing what he does, and the partisans will continue to snipe at each other if for no other reason than to add to the sense of theater.

    None of which addresses anything of any real value.

    (My apologies if the complete sentences and punctuation confused anyone here)

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but if the childish Democrats had gotten their butts to the polls in Nov. 2010, perhaps all of this bullshit wouldn't be happening now. I know. You wanted to teach Obama a lesson. Congratulations! Go teabag yourselves.

    Meanwhile:

    Okay Barry. Let's see that birth certificate. Why do you insist on murdering babies?

    "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." - 1 Corinthians 13:11 .

    Hey all you true believers... why don't you do the same?

    They only will look at this year, but do not look at the bigger picture and the long term consequences of these cuts. Thousands of teaching jobs could now be at risk. I guess creating a society full of dopes is optimal for the GOP.
    Where's the budget?

    I just don't accept the premise of the piece. There is no intelligence in saying "Well if people have to cut back, so does the government." Because what that statement really means is "Well if people have to cut back, so do The People."

    Americans would cheer if Walmart, Exxon, Apple, GM and GE grew their revenue and hired people. But if the government grows its revenue and hires people, it's like the sky is falling in or Martians are attacking or something. Americans would worry about a double-dip recession if Walmart, Exxon, Apple, GM and GE started laying off staff; they'd know something was wrong. But if the government started laying people off and cutting their wages, they'd act as though they'd just won WWII again.

    To address the question head-on, Americans should hope for bigger government. Americans should hope that 30 years from now, government will hire more people, pay more, and do more than it does now. Just like they hope the rest of the economy will hire more people, pay more, and do more than it does now.

    The government is not the opposite of the economy. The government is part of the economy. The government is part of the economy that should also grow. And yes, the Bureau of Useless Government Forms should be eliminated. But probably so should the Microsoft Windows 8 Team. And once that's done, both the government and Microsoft can hire more people than they ever did before to put to work on worthwhile projects.

    I can't tell you how maddening it is to hear people whining about "the size of government." Particularly when they get the answer wrong.

    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Read the ARTICLE. Please. I know it's from CBS, but it brings up some key facts that are just ignored. It's not just "3%" being eliminated. And it's not just temporary funding either.

    Here we go again. Have anymore strawman arguments for us to devour?

    The problem in this country is Congress (specifically the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES)... where laws are written. The President doesn't write laws... unless the right wing wants a dictator and that seems to be what they want.

    Please observe this clip from The Gospel According to St. Ronald:



    P.S. To all Republicons... keep your cotton pickin' hands off our Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which for umpteenth time are not entitlements.

    One can only hope.

    All you true believers... please consult Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution under "separation of powers."
