Sun rises in East and Obama blames GOP for sequester

Damn, who saw this one coming? ; )

President Obama blamed Republicans on Saturday for $85 billion in automatic budget cuts over the next seven months, saying the GOP is unwilling to help reduce the federal debt by raising taxes on the wealthy.

“It’s happening because Republicans in Congress chose this outcome over closing a single wasteful tax loophole that helps reduce the deficit,” Obama said in his weekly radio address.

Republicans returned the favor, saying Obama would rather raise taxes than cut major spending programs.

    Well, his mouth was moving, so we know that is a lie.

    We also know that is a an lie, since the Senate “plan” also fails to close loopholes. (See, they’re too valuable as demagogue tools.)

    And what of Obama’s budget?

    Oh, he doesn’t have one. The law required him to have one the first week of February, but he still doesn’t have one.

    What an insult to the intelligence of the American people.

    “Yeah, yeah. The sequester was Obama’s idea. But the Republicans made us do it!”

    Amazing. But here’s the video…
