Obama In A Rage? Not Again...

You Believed Him A Second Time?

Shorts All Puckered Up?

It seems Obama is in a major snit now about something his own administration created in order to slide by the last election and not face economic reality. Now he is back to blaming the Republicans for creating what he suggested, through Jack Lew, to Harry Reid as a political fiasco that is now called sequestration. As usual he surrounded himself at a press conference by people who he now claims are going to become "victims" of budget cuts. Again, he suggested this whole ploy himself to kick the can down the road. If they are victims, they are victims of a clueless President.

Now I know that our typical liberal/progressive Obama lover is going to say he did no such thing. His press secretary says just the opposite. He did create this monster. Here's a quote from Jay Carney when backed into a corner about whose idea this was.

JAY CARNEY: "What I will concede is that we were looking and the Republicans were looking for a trigger around which to build a mechanism to get us out of default possibility and the sequester was one of the idea put forward, yes by the president's team."

If anyone was "looking for a trigger" may I suggest that they consult a firearms manual next time? So he sent Lew to Harry Reid with this grand idea of making the impossible possible.

Blames Others For His Idea? Of Course He Will...

Facts seem to be quite elusive to Obama at this point because he stepped on the weinie one more time. You see when he does that move it is always his dance partner's fault and none of his. He is master of blame shifting and deception. Why? He thinks the majority of Americans are stupid and he may be right. He didn't only fool them once with his snake oil sales pitch but succeeded in doing it a second time. I've never seen a politician say as much about so little as Obama can.

The "then and now" routine is getting to be common place with President Slippery Politician at the helm. This video clearly illustrates it once again. Back when he was wanting to score political points he was "the tough guy" with the veto pen. Now he's the face of compassion for the "victims" of his own folly. Go ahead and buy that too Suckers.

Which Is It Obama?

His props were the usual. This time it was first responders. For his gun control props he uses law enforcement officers. For Obamacare he used people dressed in white coats whether they were doctors or not.

Here was his litany at the press conference yesterday about the damage his own idea is about to cause:

Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded.

Border Patrol agents will see their hours reduced and FBI agents will be furloughed.

All because of his idea to find what? A trigger you say Carney. But it went on...

Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go and thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off.

Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country.

Obama, Obama, Obama... Lets whip up the public's fears over something you did yourself while blaming it on others? Don't want to accept the responsibility for your own actions once again. You're a good role model for the dead beats of the nation. Oh it gets even worse!

Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare for their kids.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings.

Good grief and someone wants to call these statements and the action itself leadership? If you do, you know nothing about that word and what it entails. He had his chance to lead and instead came up with a very bad idea to use as a political ploy.

It's Time To Man Up Obama And Stop Crying...

So a couple of questions Barack. If you knew all of this could happen then why did Team Obama make this proposal? If you didn't know then why the heck didn't you? Did you mean it back when you proposed it? Or is it that you're only serious now? Which is it? We can watch the film clip above of you saying two different things.

By doing this you got your debt ceiling increase so you could spend more money. We get that part, at least some of us do. So you got what you wanted then and want to weasel out now? Is that it? The sequestration was supposed to happen on January 1st and the can got kicked to March 1st. How much longer is the can kicking going to continue?

My take? He's just being his usual fraudulent self. That is clearly transparent but not much else. When you make your own bed what usually happens Obama?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "THESE CUTS ARE NOT SMART, NOT FAIR, THEY WILL HURT OUR ECONOMY..." Barack Obama

So why did he let it happen?

As Always,

Many are conditioned to believe that everything he says is true. Facts mean nothing to them. They can watch a video of him saying something and still argue that he never said it. The media will be on his side, and the Republicans will take the blame for this stupid idea. He is a master at taking credit and passing blame.

I don't know why they don't just close the extra offices that he has opened since he became President. He has made the government even larger than it was before and it is all just fluff. Nothing works any better. It still takes years to get a disability through the VA. Even those without limbs have to wait two or three years and if it is PTSD, good luck.

Will and Mike - I understand the idiocy of the Lame Stream Media feeding crap to the public. What I don't understand is their consuming it. I have been the publishing the 7 lies in under 2 minutes You Tube video since I can remember and that was before he was elected.

Becky - I went through the VA disability drill when I retired and it has worsened since then I'm sure.

Jim, they consume the BS because that is far easier than doing a little research on their own. If that beauty queen or handsome head said it, it must be true.

Just for grins, I watched the World News on Al Jazeera last week. I had no idea what to expect, and was somewhat surprised. They reported news from other parts of the world that is never shown here, and put no spin whatsoever on what they reported. They reported some of our news about the selection process for the Secretary of Defense, but again, just the news with no opinion or spin.

I rather enjoyed it.

Hi Frog,

Another excellent Hub.

Sequestration was really nothing more than "political cover" for Obama. Democrats wanted higher taxes, and GOP's claimed to want spending reductions (even though they really wanted higher taxes too). So Congress was at an impasse, and Obama looked asleep at the wheel. So sequestration was Obama's "threat" to get Congress to agree to a big tax hike. It didn't work, so eventually Obama had to submit a $600 billion tax hike of his own, which did pass Congress. The problem, as we all know, is that the tax hike won't go to debt reduction, but it will go to new spending.

The truth is that 75% of federal spending goes to powers and programs that fall outside the realm of federally enumerated powers. Were this spending eliminated (mainly enforcing powers usurped from the states, and federal entitlement spending for which there is no Constitutional authority), we would run a $1 trillion annual surplus, be able to pay off the entire official federal debt in less than 20 years (assuming interest rates don't spike), and cancel most of the federal off balance sheet liabilities. And it wouldn't require a penny of tax increases, not even the $600 billion tax increase just passed.

The simple reality is that members of Congress in both parties are adamantly averse to a federal government limited to enumerated powers, as all these powers relate to matters with an international nexus, such as operation of the military, promulgating maritime law, setting import/export tariff rates, etc. These powers, not being purely domestic, are incapable of raising special interest cash in exchange for votes on bills that benefit the donors. Thus, building reelection warchests would have to be performed at a grassroots level, which is impossible unless your platform truly benefits the People in general, and not hand-picked special interests. Such attribute (grassroots ideology) only applies to a very tiny percentage of members of Congress. Thus, plutocracy will continue to rule the day, State powers will continue to be rampantly usurped, and the Constitutional rights of the People will continue to be trampled to death.

An additional nauseating feature here is that many special interests are funded with federal cash, really bribes disguised as things like research grants. The special interests then pay for the bribes by kicking back a portion to members of Congress that voted for the bribes to help them get reelected. Essentially, this is just money laundering, and the US taxpayer pays for all of it, even though the policies supported by the bribed politicians benefit their special interest donors at the expense of the People in general. In other words, We the People are financing policies that are to our own detriment, and we get no say in the matter.

The proverbial can will continue to get kicked down the road as long as it works for him. The can itself is nothing more than a distraction. He won't fix anything for if passing a true budget were important to him he would have seen it done. If he wanted cooperation between parties he would not continually blame those not in his own for things he controls. We must start to examine this man's actions through the lens of what he is accomplishing rather than what stated goals are. Only then do we truly begin to see the most crafty fox running the hen-house.

BPOP - You figured it out exactly. Please read my post above.

OP - I agree. Obama is made of teflon. It seems he can do anything, legal or not, and get away with it.

Becky - Wait until ObamaCare is fully implemented. The state and federal exchanges won't qualify insurers that want to particiapte unless they lower fee caps to Medicare levels in regard to small and intermediate size procedures. Doctors will retire in droves, because their businesses will become unprofitable. In fact, doctors are already retiring early in anticipation of exactly what I'm talking about, and wait times are starting to go up. The front end of the baby boom is just entering retorement now, which means medical demand is going to soar at the same time physician supply is going to shrink. I expect average wait times to rise from the current 2-4 weeks to about 6-12 months.

Frog - Many aspects of military compensation systems are in a state of disarray. I have a good friend who is a Navy Seal, and because he is in reserve status, he's not eligible for the automated payroll system. So, when the Navy sends him overseas (usually on missions to train soldiers of nations friendly to the US), his salary payments are usually delayed by months. Twice I've had to loan him money because when he is deployed, there is no "base" to take care of him. He has to pay for his food and lodging on his own from local civilian resources, essentially without a salary.

PoetVix - Exactly. As Charles Krauthammer says: "Ignore what Obama says; look at what he DOES."

What I want to know is, and of course Obama won't mention it, if the sequester is allowed to happen what will happen to the few horses and bayonets the military now has - will they be gone forever? and how will that affect not only our national security but the tenor of future presidential debates ? :-) Sorry Frog but you always say it all, I can't think of anything else to add! except keep the truth coming, and I know you will.

It already takes three months to get an appointment at the VA and that is for a Service connected disability. It has been over a year since my husband saw his primary care doctor and when we called in Jan. to cancel because the DAV couldn't get him over there, they gave him a date in April. They need to get some things taken care of. He has a heart problem and PTSD, can't even get in to tell his PTSD doctor that he had to quit taking the pills because they were making him worse.

We must consider the obvious, we are looking at his actions or at least listening to his words through our expectations of making the country better, and to that goal they fail. But consider if his goal is not inline with our expectations, then it is possible he is successful with his own goal.

I guess if he sets the bar low enough, he can win every time. The problem is he sets the bar so low a grade school student could also achieve the goal.

Possible silver lining: At least a few Republicans are FINALLY speaking out on-camera, pointing out what you just said, Jim--that 'tis the Prez what dunnit, doncha know. It may not amount to much, but it's more than anyone other than our hardcore conservative holdout Tea Party types from Election 2010 have bothered to do for some years....

Fred - Obama has set the bar so low that he makes it look like he has done something when he hops right over it. On the other hand if people required him to limbo underneath the bar he would raise it so high he wouldn't have to bend over at all. What a fraud. He preaches leadership from "Congress" and displays a total lack of it as Presdient other than to spend our hard earned tax dollars on nonsense.

It will be interesting to see how this Presidency goes down in the History books. My guess is he will be listed as one of the greatest Presidents this country has ever seen. The History books will rave about all the changes this President accomplished, but fail to mention that most of them had negative results. They may even let him self-author exactly what he wants to be published.

Well don't be surprised when the "history" books say healthcare reform was so important to the enigmatic Barack Obama because his pregnant mom was turned away from many hospitals and was forced to give birth in a manger! The difference between Obama and God is God doesn't think he is Obama! :-)

I saw the video with Obama saying he was not responsible for sequester when anyone with a brain knows he was and I am a little put out with the republicans that don't say more. Why do they not put the info in the American Obama sheepal faces so they have to admit the man is nothing but a liar?! They could do it daily! Put an end to this circus of his.

Polly - If you watch the Lame Stream Media they don't present facts, they present Obama spin. The press has become totally useless as an impartial arbiter of facts. Then the Republicans, too many of them, are RINOs who created this mess along with the Democrats and they are now running scared. This isn't going to be pretty without some serious changes in Congress in 2014, especially in the Senate where the Dems are blocking everything the house sends them.

Old Poolman - It's working much better than you think. The current trend in local high schools around here is to assign a book and then guide the students to skip the less important chapters to save time. DUH! It's no wonder our nation's children can't read with comprehension or critically analyze information. When I suggested it would help to cover vocabulary from the assigned text, I was told no one has time for that and they don't need to know most of those words anyway... BY AN ADMINISTRATOR! Schools are in much worse shape than most know.

Old Poolman 3 years ago from Rural Arizona

One of my grandsons in high school can read individual words, but gets no meaning from the sentences and paragraphs in the text. The teacher told his mother that this is pretty common now, and nothing to be concerned about. Kind of makes you wonder if this trend has anything to do with why so few bother to keep up with current events these days?

My daughter is home-schooled and while people complain that they are not being educated, she has been reading at a college level since she was in the 6th grade. She reads better than most college grads now. She also understands every bit. The librarian was amazed at what she chooses to check out and that she is reading Shakespeare for fun. She cant find any books in the teen section that interest her although she is just 16. They are too shallow.

Old Poolman ~ Be worried. Be very worried. And, inform said teacher it is his/her job to teach reading with comprehension. It should have been done before high school. More and more I am hearing the same mantra of this or that skill is not needed by those in administration. Experienced teachers are leaving the profession in droves as a result and those who can't leave are capitulating to that ideology due to lack of choice if they wish to keep their jobs. Education has become a business. Your grandson is the consumer. Demand they provide the product!

If I had school aged children, you can bet they would be home schooled by my wife and I.
