Ham and eggs....A days work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig.
Sequester states that it takes place only if congress fails.
Hmmmmm, congress fails....yep congress failed and now sequester will take place.
"Sequestration was used in the Budget Control Act of 2011 to encourage Congress to reduce the annual deficit by $1.2 trillion by the end of 2012. If lawmakers failed to do so, the law would have triggered automatic budget cuts to the 2013 national security budget."
"A super Congress made up of a select group of 12 members of both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate was chosen in 2011 to identify ways to reduce the national debt by $1.2 trillion over 10 years. The super Congress failed to reach an agreement, however."
“Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."
OK, so how does he do it when the congress won't compromise with him?
Can the President make laws himself?
What bill is out there for the President to sign?
If I am oversimplifying it, then tell us ole brilliant one how does he go about this other then what he is doing?
It doesn't work like that and you know it. Come on dude.
Once again for the hearing impaired.
The sequester takes away all the options from congress and the President. There is no shuffling of funds. It is an across the board cut.
The only way to stop it is for congress to sign a bill that stops it and send it to the President.
Congress has failed at doing this for over a year.
The President does not have the power to stop it.
Only Congress can stop it.
Does that finally clear things up for you?
Unfortunately that didn't even work.
The house republicans failed.
The American people know they failed.
Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump. Obama's brick wall falling on his head...
"My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to always be ready, no matter when it may overtake me." Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Jackson, 1862.
If he were held accountable, he would be in prison now.
The only thing O consistently delivers is uncertainty.
The whole thing is just a political chess game. Obama is good at it. His political maneuvering skills are stewed to perfection. That's the problem, it's all about politics and power not what's good for the citizens of the country he is "leading". He's got the republicans backed into a corner. They'll fight. There's no choice unless they concede the game. One of the things that makes me throw up a little in my mouth, is how the democrats are like, "come join us, be like us, adopt our values and morals....". It's creepy, like a science fiction movie. Yuck. Even if the republicans go down in a flaming crash dive in 2014, I hope the most, if not all, of them go down fighting, kicking, biting, gun's blazing. You never know, they might pull off a victory. It happens in the movies all the time. And if they gain any seats at all in the House or Senate in 2014 it'll hurt the democrats, both congressional and presidential, a lot worse than they'll be hurt if they lose seats. What do the republicans have to lose by fighting? Not a thing they haven't already lost in the last election. But, we'll see I suppose.

. . . less of a calamity than Obama has warned?
so the economy takes a clear turn for the good and the dems suffer for that?
