    Better yet, “Do harm and blame others”.

    Or the Boehner/McConnell way: “Harm all but yourself. Then blame others – despite the video.”

    Rearranging chairs on the Titanic is just as practical. Instead of 1 group of people suffering another will take its place. There are no winners just losers. Stop the madness & pass a real budget before any harm falls on the economy.

    How ’bout THESE finger prints?

    gotta cut 42.5 billion from non defense programs and 42.5
    for a total of 85 billion this year. So how do you do that?

    Well shut down public tours of the white house. Yeah, that will save a bunch. And God knows we need to save jobs like … well … the Chief Calligrapher.

    Or maybe Obama could find some waste here:

    But no, it is much easier to cut off a volunteer program.

    @David

    Like you just added any substance…LOL.

    Here in support of the amateur Asay :

    “President Barack Obama said he will veto any Republican bill that looks to replace sequestration’s across-the-board cuts with a plan that would give the White House flexibility to selectively slash programs, saying tax increases must be a part of the proposal.”

    http://blog.al.com/wire/2013/02/one_day_to_go_president_obama.html

    So the opening statement is true.

    Now Hippocrates – being dedicated to the art taught to him by his parents devised an Oath that would be required of all his students to take. His first requirement?

    I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

    So the first panel is accurate.

    Now the final panel is his opinion so it IS debatable. So is this a partisan approach?

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/5/email-tells-feds-make-sequester-painful-promised/

    And always there is the constant finger pointing, never taking responsibility for any result of any action taken. Will he claim the results when one of the detainees released from detention (to make funds available for new uniforms for TSA) robs and murders someone?

    Nope, he will without doubt blame the republicans.

    “First, do no harm” and then for the next 2000 years the doctors drained blood out of sick folks.
    Bad analogy.
    .
    It just proves the point of ignorance being harmful.

    This is Obama to the letter

    @dapperdan61

    The House has passed a Real Budget, Harry Reid refuses to allow the Senate to read the Budget Bills passed by The House.

    Where was your ire at the Democrats from January 2007 to December 31, 201 when they failed to pass a Budget in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010? Where is your ire at The Democrats for them ‘kicking the can down the road’ for this time frame? Where is your ire against The Democrats increasing the Debt Ceiling in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 instead of doing their job and passing a budget?

    @David

    Nope, reverse it.. Boehner: We gave you the Tax Increases, now you must make the cuts we agreed to.

    Obama: Baaaa Whaaa.

    Evil Obama… All the guy wants to do is bring health care to the poor. To people who are under the thumb of giant insurance companies, and he has to put up with garbage editorials like this. History is on his side, NOT Asay’s. 100 years from now people will look at this cartoon and note how inspired Obama was and how gullible people like Asay were, victims of Fox News and spin.

    a… All the guy wants to do is bring health care to the poor. "
    Obama wants everyone to be poor so he can supply them with “free” health care by taking it from the evil rich.

    @David

    Nice. Boner? What? Are you three?

    It is a good scenario. If only it had happened that way, but……

    You’re saying that John was the one that suggested using the 1985 concept of a sequester in forcing cuts if two parties could not agree. And THAT debate has been raging with Obama the loser in that he and his staff are the daddies of that move. So no. Obama got what he thought was a good deal. He was wrong. Conservatives wish to start lowering the deficit more quickly and cuts are necessary. Even Obama agrees that cuts are necessary. Obama wants to raise taxes on the “rich”. A mistake – not that the rich can’t or should not pay more taxes – because he negotiated what he thought was a good deal. Again, he was wrong. The increase of 70 billion a year won’t do the trick. So now he has to go back to the well but wait a minute, he MADE a deal and NOW it’s time to cut. He refuses to even consider it so in comes the failsafe… his sequester. And 85 billion cut from a 3.8 trillion dollar spending bill (it is NOT a budget) is about 2%. Yep, we are asking that you cut spending by 2%. The exact same amount Obama agreed to take from every working family in the nation with the reinstatement of the payroll tax at it’s original level. But that’s too tough for the genius politician that is Obama to do. So he threatens the sheep (that would be you) with the same old song and dance teachers, firefighters, police, and first responders. The elderly will go hungry, the children will be thrown out of school.

    All from cutting 85 billion from a spending plan that spends 1.2 trillion more than it will take in.

    And blame? That is the problem. Why would any sane person “blame” someone for not spending what they did not have to spend?

    How many screwups are you willing to overlook from your genius president?

    100 years from now history will show this president as someone who always said one thing and did another (lie) and set this country back 50 years as he “fundamentally transformed it” all under the American Idol loving sheep who can’t get past the media’s obsession with his celebrity.

    We’ll see, or should I say our children will see. Or do I have to assume you are correct?
