    “Republican Leadership” is an Oxymoron!

    Conservative pundit David Brooks pointed out that the sequester was deliberately crafted to be SO idiotic in its mindless (instead of targeted) spending cuts, that Congress would HAVE to go back and get it right, later. It turns out he was far too optimistic in his assessment of the collective I.Q. of Congress! The art in this one is Oliphant at his most impressive. It could be a great poster.

    The house has to pass a resonable bi-partisan budget.
    We’re all doomed.

    Personally, I would have liked every single person who attended the White House Correspondents Dinner to have been delayed while on the tarmac for four hours….

    That said, the reason this was “reviewed” so quickly was (a) Congressmen/women have to get home every weekend .. Originally, D.C. was severely affected, so they exempted themselves, and their airports. This didn’t go over well with the voting/flying public. and
    (b)Obama and Democrats were taking more heat than they thought they would. They thought they could pin the whole thing on Republicans, but polls showed they blamed not only both parties, but the President. That was a problem.

    It’s purely political. (I had plenty more, but I’ve got to go. “What difference does it make”. ~ Hillary Clinton

    Obama can offer suggestions but it really is Congress’ duty and job to pass budgets, enact laws, … Put the blame where it really belongs.

    The sequester is another result of the republican party attempting to make the Obama administration a failed administration, as per there very own statements prior to his first term and again after his re-election. They have once again blocked an attempt of the President, i.e., to make the rich and corporations their pay their share of taxes; In creating the sequester they have made a “smaller” government and nobody wants it.

    This inept maneuver has created “Warmageddon” in the USA.

    We would all be better off if we ignored the trolls (Ms. Ima, HOWGOZIT, Gore Bane, Tigger, onguard, etc.) … all they do is spew the same one-and-two-line bulsit (misspelling INTENDED!!!) on each page — rants that get under the skin of right-minded people … consider that either (1) none of them care any more than to hit-and-run like most who spray grafitti on any blank space, and don’t really care what anybody thinks, or (2) some right-wing/Tea Party sugah dadda pays them to spew this garbage, making them low-life freeloaders, just as they accuse everybody who actually employs actual thought processes before posting on the Internet.

    I would be VERY interested to see a DD214 proving more than three months of honorable service from any of these right-wing trolls … but I expect that could never happen …

    Just a couple of cents from a 20-year USMC (Ret) who earned a master’s degree in something other than a redneck agenda …
