" Especially if the threats and blandishments are not entirely credible" This is obama's problem. He has finally been recognized as the cowardly liar that many of us had already known that he is. He has no credibility, therefore he cannot govern or "lead".

Isn't that "the Cowardly Lyin' "?

Obama didn't have a ''Susan Rice'' he could call on to lie for him on this go around, and his lie was exposed to all.
They're flailing. That's the impression I get from watching Barack Obama and his White House over the past week.

Things haven't gone as they expected. The House Republicans were supposed to cave in on the sequester, as they did on the fiscal cliff at the beginning of the year.

They would be so desperate to avoid the sequester's mandatory defense cuts, the theory went, that they would agree to higher taxes (through closing loopholes) on high earners.

But the Republicans didn't deal. They decided to take the sequester cuts and make them the basis for a continuing resolution funding the government...
