The jig is up on Obama's ridiculous flight delay stunt. It's time to stop playing games and admit that sequestration is nothing like the huge, savage spending cuts the president tried to scare the American people about. In fact, it's only a small first step toward the much bigger cuts that are needed to limit the size and intrusiveness of the federal government.
Obama needs to end the FAA harm offensive, let air travel get back to normal, and let sequestration go back to being the dog that didn't bark.
