Sick of ‘Sequester, Sequester, Sequester!!’

Written by William Pauwels on February 26, 2013

MH900098045Sequester! Sequester! Sequester! . . . Is anyone out there besides me sick and tired of hearing about the Sequester? Obama, the author of the Sequester, is now blaming Republicans for failing to renege on the agreement they made with Obama a year and a half ago – an agreement which he signed.  He has recklessly exaggerated the negative effects of the Sequester in an obvious effort to depict himself as the people’s savior.
It is obvious that Obama uses every opportunity and issue to trash Republicans in Congress. He continuously proposes legislation that he knows will not be approved by his congressional opponents so he can vilify them. And it works – at least with the many uninformed voters – his primary constituents – who secured his election.  (Imagine – the presidency of the most powerful nation in the world is literally determined by 30% of the population who have little or no understanding of the functions of government, the issues, or even the key players. Insane!)
Obama has pushed entitlements to their limit in an effort to attract voters who are takers (voting-takers).  And now he has initiated a 100 city tour to promote greater participation in his entitlement society. He has run up over $1 trillion of debt ($1 million-million) every year of his presidency for the primary benefit of voting-takers. He is spending over $.42 of borrowed or printed money for every dollar of government expenditure.  Clearly he is a totally irresponsible spendthrift and/or an economic novice.
Obama never stops campaigning and attacking – in lieu of governing, which is what presidents are elected to do.  Obama is, obviously, determined to unseat the Republican control of the House of Representatives in the 2014 elections. Then he will have total control of our nation, and the power to fully impose his de facto Fabian Socialistic/Quasi-Communistic agenda on the American people.
To make matters even more unbearable, the media are obsessed with Sequester! Sequester! Sequester! and Obama! Obama! Obama! With the exception of Fox News, the leftist media spend an inordinate amount of time propagating Obama’s deceptions, blame game, leftist agenda, entitlement society, and covering for his failed presidency. 
Fortunately I subscribe to The Week Magazine, which covers all of the important things going on in the world beyond Obama’s narcissistic and self-serving interests.  And they do it in a fair and balanced manner with succinct summaries of reports from around the world by qualified and competent reporters and commentators.
