So now Obama is warning of drastic cuts in food safety, air traffic control, police and fire protection -- in all sorts of services that will...
There is much about the Progressive/Left/Democrat party that is disgusting, but THIS is the most disgusting--the threats to hurt the vulnerable--the young, the old, the needy--by cutting their services rather than cutting all the other needless, wasteful and bullbleep spending that Democrats are known for--self-esteem studies, cow gas and shrimps on treadmills as well as the Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency, National Endowment for the Arts, Planned Parenthood, etc. Fubarak has taken the politics of fear, salted it with the Chicago Thugocracy, and with the low information voter listening to CNN and MSNBC, he's got a lot of vulnerable people frightened by his LIES.
There's no doubt President Obama is using the so-called Washington Monument maneuver in the fight with Republicans over sequestration budget cuts. It's a time-honored tactic of bureaucratic warfare: When faced with cuts, pick the best-known and most revered symbol of government and threaten to shut it down. Close the Washington Monument and say, "See? This is what happens when you cut the budget." Meanwhile, all sorts of other eminently cuttable government expenditures go untouched.
