    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The spending cuts mandated by the sequester may hamper the United States’s ability to invade countries for absolutely no reason, a Pentagon spokesman warned today.
    The Pentagon made this gloomy assessment amid widespread fears that the nation’s ability to wage totally optional wars based on bogus pretexts may be in peril.
    “Historically, the United States has stood ready and able to throw billions of dollars at a military campaign with no clear rationale or well-defined objective,” said spokesman Harland Dorrinson. “Our capacity to wage war willy-nilly is now in jeopardy.”

    As Pogo would say we’ve met the enemy & he is us. In order to reduce debt with no new taxes we must 1st kill the recovery.
    The teapublicans have cornered the President & we can’t rectify this mess until the midterm elections next year.
    Obamas biggest mistake was trusting the Republicans to come to their senses & do the right thing. Big mistake.

    The simple fact is, and has been, John Boehnhead and crew are out to destroy the nation if necessary to preserve the party, and profit for their corporate handlers. While the methodology for the sequester goes back to 1985 (Gramm Rudmann Holings) and was used by REAGAN, with many job cuts and RIFs intentionally driven to cripple regulatory agencies especially, contractors increased their stranglehold on budgets. Maybe it is time for Boeing, GE, and other corporate giants, and their “key investors”, to actually pay some actual taxes??

    It’s right up there with Reid securing a “gentleman’s agreement” with the Senate Republicans on filibusters. How naive can the Democrats be, to fall for that “Peace In Our Time” stuff over and over and over again before they catch on that the Republican idea of negotiation is “Our way or the country gets it”?

    Obama negotiated for half the cuts going to defense… thinking no Republican would allow those cuts… R’s called his bluff, and didn’t blink.

    I’m glad you reminded me, I caught up reading Borowitz reports that I missed.

    Never underestimate the power of the (Tea) Force. They are trying to cripple the economy so you look bad. Don’t you get it yet?

    There are an awfully lot of people commenting here that need to stop going to talking point sites that lie by fact omission, chart scale juggling, out of context quotes, paraphrasing quotes, etc. The information may feed your predisposition to believe their viewpoint, but it certainly shouldn’t be used to exclusively formulate your own viewpoint.

    What we really need to do is sequester the congress, like a jury. Lock ‘em up and don’t let ’em out till they figure out how to compromise.

    Still pushing that tired old story, Tigger? Obama naively wasted time pursuing bi-partisanship. After realizing that the GOP was dedicated to blocking his agenda, he then was forced to compromise with Blue Dog Democrats. The results weren’t pretty, but far better than anything I’d expect from a McCain presidency.

    If you think Obama & Congress should have spent their time in 2008-2009, cutting the Bush deficits, your top is made out of rubber…

    PS- Bush was President through January 2008, not Obama. If you had any honesty, you’d question why we ran deficits from 2001 – 2007.

    Ah, gotta love a Pres who uses extortion as his primary means of “negotiation”…

    Thank you for proving that what this country needs is a good healthy dose of voter suppression. People who are gullible enough to believe that the sequester- which is NOT a budget reduction, but rather a very small reduction of spending increases- will destroy our economy, should absolutely not be allowed to vote. Along with people who think Obama is a secret Muslim communist, or that Romney was a gay-hating white supremacist.
