    At this point it is only the willfully ignorant who pay heed to the Obamanation’s blatherings.

    At all times, it is only the willfully close minded who praise unreservedly the blatherings of any political cartoonist.

    Eric Cantor has confirmed that he and Paul Ryan talked John Boehner out of accepting a “Grand Bargain” with Obama in 2011. It was this rejection that led to the sequester.

    In an interview with Ryan Lizza, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) confirmed that he and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) talked Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) out of accepting a “Grand Bargain” with President Obama.

    If Barry would just agree to only keep his one big tax hike for the year and not insist on another, this whole “crisis” would be over.

    Btw a 1.2% cut in future deficit spending is not a crisis. It’s called a baby step toward responsibility.

    I see, once again, Ms Benson is calling attention to President Obama’s extreme indolence. All he had to do was send a drone strike against a Libyan village and announce that, based on Top Secret evidence, he had brought all the people who killed the ambassador to IVSTICE, and Ms Benson would have been deprived of one of her ‘cries’. Agents who inspected the wreckage could even have ‘discovered’ a copy of the ‘disgusting video’.


    But no, President Obama has been far too lazy to expend the 15 minutes of labour that would have been required.

    I insist on a 90% tax on every dollar above $250,000 per year. That should apply to all income including interest and dividends.There should be no billionaires. Take away every dollar above 50 million.

    Yo Clark Kent-

    I’m sure someone will buy you a one way ticket to Russia. Then you will have a great time. PS: your latte is getting cold and your free cell phone is ringing.

    Especially if that cartoonist is Lisa Benson. She’s a conservative housewife/cartoonist who cannot think of anything other than trivializing everything Obama does or doesn’t do.

    Ms. Benson’s cartoon shows blindness and arrogance at work. Mr. Obama has not worked hard enough to protect the flock from wolves and talked about the wolves so much, no body believes in them. The congress has gone home to sleep and the American people watch helplessly as the leaders of our nation fail to lead, or to even follow good advice from business leaders.
    ^
    The sequester, if targeted and effectively administered, could do good things for our nation, but this sledge hammer approach is going to do some harm even as it does some good. The question is yet to be answered, will the gain be worth the pain? It’s the classic “face or gut” option. Will we be punched in the face, or the stomach, and how hard will we be hit? And even if “I”, as an individual, do not get hit, I have to wonder how many of my friends and family will be.
    This is unnecessary and both parties and the executive and legislative branch should be ashamed of how they have failed to do their jobs on behalf of the American people.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Thanks, Lisa.
    On the subject of Obama’s idiotic orations, I found this editorial today….http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/022813-646267-obama-labels-new-revenues-as-spending-cuts.htm……2/28/13 "Obama’s Sequester Math: $300 Billion in New Revenues Called “Spending Cuts”.."
    -
    printed 1 page….Obama’s “balanced math”….IBD discovered Obama’s “PLAN” which had been hidden to even the most experienced reporters in D.C. and this editorial details it…
    and the final sentence reads “After 4 years, Obama’s unseriousness as a president continues to surprise us.”
    -
    Obama’s Land of OZ….up is down, new taxes are “spending” and “spending is investment” and deficits/debt are of no concern!

    “You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter.” – Dick Cheney
    Dick Cheney has more money than you, so that makes him right and you wrong. Isn’t that how this works?

    Can I contribute to the fund to send him to Russia? Sounds like a deal!

    Oh honey, he doesn’t need anyone to trivialize what he does – he does THAT on his own.

    Do you hate all housewives, or just the conservative ones? There’s the tolerant left again!
