Obama, his team struggling with accuracy when explaining impact of sequester cuts

Published March 02, 2013

| FoxNews.com

President Obama and top administration officials are struggling with accuracy in explaining the impact of billions in federal budget cuts known as sequester that kicked in Saturday morning -- even getting called out by a Capitol Hill superintendent about furloughs for support staffers.

Carlos Elias, the Capitol Building superintendent, sent out a memo Friday reminding staffers that the current sequestration plan does not include “reductions in force or furloughs” and that “pay and benefit of each of our employees will not be impacted.”

Though not directly mentioning Obama by name, Elias also said in the memo that a “high-ranking official said employees that clean and maintain the U.S. Capitol will receive a cut in pay.”

Hours before the memo was released, the president, in what appears to be the administration’s attempt to maximize the potential impact of the cuts, said at a press conference: “Starting tomorrow everybody here, all the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol. Now that Congress has left, somebody’s going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and throwing out the garbage. They’re going to have less pay. The janitors, the security guards, they just got a pay cut, and they’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.”

I think we’ve stumbled onto something. He just doesn’t know how do deal with us when we’re willing to sacrifice to avoid letting him have his way.

Funny thing is that Spring Break for Moochelle is in 3 weeks. And I’m sure Bathhouse Barry has a separate getaway planed with Reggie at the same time. What will they do???

Considering they have zero experience with accuracy, it’s no wonder they can’t hone their message. So what.

I doubt it, but perhaps the GOP may learn a thing or two by standing up for their professed beliefs. If the GOP stands by their beliefs, they will ultimately expose the Democrats for the hypocrites they are. No one has ever won at poker by folding.

It's hard to be accurate when everything you say is a lie.

Amazing how that works!

Evidently,”struggling with accuracy” is the latest euphemism for lying.

Lie again for another lie - Rhetorical Flourish trained to be a lawyer (trained to be a liar with rhetorical techniques). problem is by giving the least fortunate everything they want a liar can gain the confidence of the masses with rhetorical flourishes ( lies, supporting lies).

Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Emperor of Japan during WWII, franklin Delano Roosevelt, Hugo Chavez - liars all of the them to support an agenda that only caused destruction.

FDR caused the depression only to worsen with his lies, WWII came along and the depression seemed to lift the country, but that was not realized fully until the 1950s. when the men returned in 1945 employment was difficult for a time, just like housing.

former military personnel whom were injured gained a college education through vocational rehabilitation, others gained an education through the GI bill.

Accuracy and “team Obama” is the definition of an oxymoron. Team = “oxy”, moron = Obama!

The worst thing about telling a lie is you have to rmember what you stated. Guess that is a BIG PROBLEM for them right now (and for a long time)

So busy manufacturing the doom lies that they lost track of any facts - not that they would actually use them for anything.

Exactly! I don’t know if barry CAN’T remember his lies, or does what he does on purpose.

Perhaps a mix of both.

All of you have to remember the most basic principle of communist propaganda: Once heard it cannot be unheard and once seen it cannot be unseen.

The principle has always worked it’s magic on ignorant and stupid people and always will.

I’m thinking with Mooch away DownLow Barry will have his spokesboy announce a new “White House” appointment for Wharton School Grad Reggie Love. After that weekend of action in Fla, Barry will want him around all the time, ala Kal Penn. Those two silly kids! They just keep breaking up to making up!

Hmmmmm...Reggie Love....wonder what the title will be. Should be a laugh riot.

Boy, Mooch must have made some deal with the devil to be this guys beard to this extent.
