The Obama regime lied about the paternity of sequestration. It threatened people who publicized their lying. It lied about threatening them. Meanwhile, it lied about the timing of sequestration. (It was triggered more than a year ago, but took effect this year.) And it lied about the baneful effects of sequestration. To validate its lies, it tried to do as much harm as possible even before sequestration took effect. Republicans have been tripping over one another to undo the most dramatic effects of the administration's shakedown by giving it exactly what it wants -- more spending. The press screaming, the usual victims are whining, Republicans are cowering. . . .
