    Listening to part of his press conference today on MSNBC, Obama said:

    "I just want everyone to know that every time we see a piece of economic data it was made worse because of the sequester"

    Im starting to think that this was Obama's plan the whole time, he knows the economy is weak based on q4 of last year, plus the start of this year there has been murmurs from the retailers about how much the payroll taxcut which obama repealed is hurting consumers. Pile that on with the mountain of new regulations coming businesses way due to obamacare, on top of the new taxes due to obamacare, and im starting to believe that obama allowed the sequester to go through simply so that he would have something or someone to point the finger at besides himself.

    But, it wasn't made worse when we sent $60 billion to Sandy victims in January on top of all the insurance company money.

    This is just who he blames this week. Next week it is the continuing resolution threat and in April it is raising the debt ceiling. Each event will be a doomsday scenario from the White House and from the lips of his sycophants.

    He says today that he is not a dictator (and doesn't have Jedi mind meld abilities - that is for another argument) but by the way he acts and constantly creating bogeymen for the steeple, I respectfully disagree.
  4. 1) sandy victims waited 3+ months for congress to send them an aid package. Katrina victims got theirs in 10 days. Blacks 10 days, whites 100+ days...just saying.

    2) insurance company money was sent directly to the banks holding the mortgages on the properties. The banks have barely released any of it yet for fear that the owners will just take the money and walk away from the property. 90% of the houses affected along the Jersey shore have yet to begun cleanup, let alone rebuilding.

    Obama the blame president.
  6. Blaming is a big thing with the Left.. they accuse, when the accusation is rebutted successfully they move on to the next accusation.

    or just keep repeating the same accusation. We see a lot of that around here.

    Reminds of when Nixon said: "I am not a crook".

    Or they go after those casting blame. Woodward knows a thing or two about that.
