Obama calls GOP spending cuts ‘dumb, arbitrary’
WASHINGTON (AP) — A combative President Barack Obama blamed Republican lawmakers Friday for failing to stop automatic spending cuts that were to begin kicking in later in the day, calling the cuts “dumb, arbitrary.”
Republicans said the fault was his, for insisting that increased taxes be part of the resolution.
The president said the impact of the cuts won’t immediately be felt, but middle class families will begin to “have their lives disrupted in significant ways.” He said that as long as the cuts stay in effect, Americans will know that the economy could have been better had they been averted. SOURCE
Tax and Spend! Never cut the budget or reduce taxes! FREE STUFF for ALL of those that have supported me and got me elected and re-elected!
There is a whole truck load of hypocrisy in that paragraph, but it accurately describes the governing style of Barack Obama and the Democrats; except for 1 minor point; Obama has been POTUS for over 4 years now and has yet to put forth a budget.
You can’t cut what’s not there and Obama knows it! That is why there has been no budget from this President and why sequestration has come about.
“The pain, though, will be real,” Obama said.
Mr. President, the pain has been REAL since the 1st day you took office!
Obama, pressed on whether he bears some of the responsibility for the stalemate, expressed frustration. “Give me an example of what I might do,” he challenged reporters.
“I am not a dictator. I’m the president,” he said. He added that he can’t do a “Jedi mind-meld” or use any “special sauce” to get Republicans to negotiate.
You Sir have tried to by-pass Congress at every turn; have attempted to rule by Executive order and fiat and regardless of your hollow words, you have made every effort to set yourself up as a ruler, that *dictator* you claim to not be.
Obama says, “Give me an example of what I might do,” and to that I say; STOP making promises of FREE STUFF for all of YOUR people, free cell phones, free birth control, free healthcare, who knows what else, as YOUR people, the ones that have seen fit to give you another 4 years to make America over into a Third World Nation, are still milking the system, getting their food stamps and welfare. Yes BZ, *The Free Cheese*.
The TRUTH, Mr. President, a word that I seriously doubt you can define, is this; there is NO FREE STUFF, none. It is ALL paid for by the sweat of working Americans, the only ones that can’t see the TRUE cost of it all are YOUR people.
Michelle Obama, YOUR wife, I refuse to call her a *First Lady* because she is no Lady, has taken it upon herself to fight obesity in America, to trim the fat if you will.
That Sir is what’s wrong with your entire administration. YOU won’t trim anything; you want to tax and spend, have NO budget and then whine like the Libtard you are when Congress does force this sequestration and spending cuts on YOUR regime.
The problem in Washington is this; Democrats are as dumb as dirt!
Barack Obama has NO leadership skills, he can only act in the capacity of a *community organizer* and he has to force his will upon people. I guess that’s *The Chicago Way* in him, but Obama is not the only dumb Democrat in D.C. Here are a few examples:

Maxine Waters Warns 170 MILLION Jobs Could Be Lost Due to Sequestration Cuts
I have to say this; Maxine Waters has been catching a lot of criticism over the 170 million jobs to be lost remark she made. Supposedly there are only 135 million jobs in America as we know it, BUT, Waters was simply confused by her leaders prior statement and she was reflecting on how many jobs would be lost if all ’57 states’ were taken into consideration.
Yes, those are the people that have control of the White House and Senate. Is it any wonder America is in the mess it’s in?
