In the article, which is so short the excerpt had to be very short, the King blames the potential for sequester as causing his economy not to properly recover.
Thanks. I need a laxative.
I won’t watch. He is an idiot. The law required him to turn in a budget and he has missed it....I think this was the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW he missed the deadline.
NOW he wants to fix the problem? What an ass.
Da da da da, da da da da...the heralds proclaim his arrival. I wonder what band of suck ups he rounded up to speak before? The washington press pimps? Some quadrupple over paid government hacks out on their lunch breaks?
I also wonder how many teleprompters this dud has on call. He must have at least two on AF1 for any imprompto jaunt around the country.
All I hope is they do not preempt Rush because I cannot stand the mere sound of this asshat.
CBO reports 2013 Fed deficit $845 so far since OCt 1, 2012. FOUR Months!
‘You can pay me now, or pay me later. But sooner or later, you’re gonna pay!’ The Youth that voted for Obama will get just what they deserve.
LOL! No questions!
“Following the Remarks by the President, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney will answer questions from the press.”
Must have an extra big load of foolishness to feed his idiots in the media.
don’t deal with this negro prick.
John Boehner throws cold water on Obama sequester plan
Speaker John Boehner is signaling he will not accept revenue increases that President Barack Obama is expected to propose to delay the automatic spending cuts that take hold at the beginning of March.
President Obama first proposed the sequester and insisted it become law, Boehner said in a statement. Republicans have twice voted to replace these arbitrary cuts with common-sense cuts and reforms that protect our national defense.
The sequester is not something that I proposed, Obama said during the debate in Boca Raton, Fla. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.
That directly contradicts a 2012 book from investigative journalist Bob Woodward
Then-OMB Director Jack Lew, now the White House chief of staff, and White House Legislative Affairs Director Rob Nabors pitched the idea to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Woodward writes, according to a Sept. 7 story appearing on the Politico website.
Under the deal, which Republicans accepted after several rounds of bargaining, the federal debt ceiling was raised staving off a potential financial crisis.
The president is not proposing that the sequester go away, Zients told Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions during a Feb. 14 Senate Budget Committee hearing. The sequester is a very important forcing function for us to do deficit reduction. So the sequester will be replaced with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. (RELATED: Rep. Forbes says Obama holding national security hostage to blackmail Republicans into raising taxes)
In the debate, Obama said he didnt propose sequestration, Congress did. (We asked the White House for comment, but didn’t hear back.)
To determine the question of ownership, we turned to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodwards new book The Price of Politics.
Woodwards reporting shows clearly that defense sequestration was an idea that came out of Obamas White House. But the intention was to force Republicans to negotiate, not to actually put the cuts into effect.
Woodward summarizes the thoughts of the Obama team: “There would be no chance the Republicans would want to pull the trigger and allow the sequester to force massive cuts to Defense.” Democrats, meanwhile, didnt want to see their favorite domestic programs cut.
As the negotiations proceeded, Republicans seemed to think the same thing.
“Boehner told the House Republican leadership and other key members not to worry about the sequester Guys, this would be devastating to Defense, he said. This would be devastating, from their perspective, on their domestic priorities. This is never going to happen,” Woodward wrote.
Nonetheless, sequestration is now looming.
