Quotation Of The Day

Actually a series of quotations (hat tip to Mike's America):

“Obama’s been virtually absent from the legislative process” of replacing his sequester, reports Politico. After getting the $600 billion in tax hikes he wanted last month (with no spending cuts), “there has been no discernible effort by the White House to work on a bill that might pass.”

“The Obama administration seems to be spending far more time warning of the consequences of the sequester — and blaming Republicans for it — than engaging in actual negotiations that would prevent it,” says ABC News.

“The president hasn’t actually come up with a proposal to avert sequestration,” says David Brooks in the New York Times, “let alone one that is politically plausible.”

“Tuesday's event had the feeling of a campaign commercial that went too far to be believed,” says the Los Angeles Times.

Politico says calls to GOP leaders were “perfunctory,” meant to “inoculate” the president from criticism that he’s campaigning instead of urging Senate Democrats to follow the House and pass legislation replacing his sequester. Their headline asks, “Is President Obama overplaying sequester hand?


Meanwhile, this morning the mainstream media are so thrilled that Michelle Obama appeared at yesterday's Oscar Awards and, a day or so earlier, danced with Jimmy Fallon.

  1. All Obama is doing is what he knows, which is essentially voting "present".

  2. All this scare-mongering, where is Congress? Not in session as far as I know. Willing to let the sequestration go ahead?

  3. Why would he try to compromise with Republicans?

    He's seen what happens when you put your hand in that cage.

    Look at they way they said they wouldn't filibuster the Hagel nomination. You don't waste your time with those people.

    Take it out front to the people and let the rethugs decide if they want to self destruct. See how many normals think that a 5% reduction in military spending "eviscerates our military".
