Spare the Hype of 'Budget Armageddon'

Barack Obama is a weasling liar. There is absolutely no reason for ANY government cuts. Simply because the sequester was not a cut, merely a reduction in growth. The government still spent more than they did last year. I have never had so much contempt for a person in the office of the President as I have for BHO.

Very true. This guy has done everything wrong. He says the end is here,well wait till he and lady needs to get out of town. I bet the plane will be full of gas and hot food.
Barack Obama's strategy going into the scheduled sequestration was to hit the panic button, over and over again, putting the very Obama-friendly media into a heavy rotation of disaster metaphors.

"Hours, now, until massive government cuts go into effect that could impact every American. Jobs vaporizing, flights delayed, even criminals walking free," warned ABC morning anchor Josh Elliott. On screen were the words "BUDGET ARMAGEDDON."

The only people being released from jails were about 2,000 illegal immigrants who were facing deportation. The Department of Homeland Security released them, citing "looming budget cuts." That's just more gamesmanship. Put another quarter in the panic...
