Quote of the Day || February 5, 2013

by Keith Koffler on February 6, 2013, 7:58 am

“I do support a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. It’s just that the spending cuts might get lost in the mix.”

- Barack Obama

A note from our attorneys: This is not a real quote

Are we sure this isn’t a real quote? Sounds and feels like one.

THIS IS DISTURBING BECAUSE THE PRESS HAS ABDICATED THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES FOR US: “I think you’ve seen in the way that this president has approached them the seriousness with which he takes all of his responsibilities on this,” claimed Carney, moments after Obama walked out of the press room after delivering a short statement on the pending sequester budget cuts.
Numerous reporters asked for more details and officials explanation of how the policy would work, for example, if an American-born jihadi living in the United States was about to launch an attack.
“These issues are best explained by a lawyer,” said Carney.
Obama is a lawyer, and worked as constitutional-law lecturer during the 1990s. Reporters at the White House event were dissatisfied about Carney’s evasions, but none openly complained or objected.
One reporter called out questions, but fell silent when Carney asked another reporter for a question.

They have abdicated. Apparently there was a two year news blackout on the drone base in Saudi Arabia. By all the media.

Hey; didn’t the sequester idea originate in the WH? Now, not such a great idea. Welcome to the real world Mr. preezy.

You are correct, J2O. In fact it was first suggested by Jack Lew who broached the idea of defense sequester as a threat to Republicans during debt ceiling negotiations.

WH blames Hurricane Sandy and defense sequester for shrinking economy:

Vell said, Scottso! I’m just waiting for the day the jerk blames everything on the morons who voted for him. “It’s not MY fault! You guys voted for me! I never promised you a Rose Garden!”

So true, Girly1!
