Not sure he does anything but lie. Or perhaps that is too harsh. He is ignorant and just blathers. So may not intend to lie since he really believes his own bs.

Right, he intends to make this a "socialist" country, tearing up the constitution as he does so!! And he's doing quite well at it!!

It doesn't appear that Obama is ignorant at all. His lies are not accidental or random. He does exactly what he wants to do with confidence that he can get away with it. So far he's succeeded.

The Defense Department "Sequester" – a budget gimmick originally described as "ridiculous" by Harry Reid and the President's Chief of Staff – has become a Gordian Knot that the White House and Congress have so far failed to unravel.  Originally scheduled to be force implemented on January 1, 2013, it escaped solution during the New Year's Eve fiscal cliff fiasco.  Instead, the problem was just kicked down the road a few more weeks with a new drop-dead date of March 1. 

Rather than providing relief, the legislative inaction accentuates uncertainty and compresses even further the time...
