Obama: I'm Not a Dictator or Judge--Any Bad Econ News During Sequester Is All GOP's Fault

"The Sequester" was not only passed by a Republican-controlled House of Representatives, but also by a Democrat-controlled Senate led by Harry Reid, and was signed by a Democrat president, Barack Obama. If the sequester is so terrible, why did the Senate and Obama approve it in the first place? Is this another example of, loosely, "we have to approve it in order to find out what's in it?" Is that the way Democrats govern - let's do something without knowing what we're doing? Take your pick - either they (1) knew what was in it, but passed it anyway because they didn't care, or (2) didn't know what was in it, but passed it anyway because they didn't care.

I never thought about how democrats govern until a guy, who is a registered democrat, demanded the Republicans were wrong to impeach Bill Clinton.
The thing is, this same man told me that, had Reagan or Bush done the same, he'd want this out of office and I agreed. The difference, is his laws would only govern conservatives!

I stitched together these "best of" clips from Obama's news conference today on the sequester/budget cuts. I don't think the appropriate label for Obama saying he's not a "dictator" or a "[Supreme Court] judge" as a Freudian slip, but the statements are quite revealing as he sees himself in light of his job description.

The takeaway: The first four years of economic bad news is Bush's fault and now it's the fault of congressional Republicans.
