So let me get this right. Obama and Jack Lew came up with the idea of the sequester as a punishment for Republicans who wouldn’t agree to the Democrats during the Super-Committee. Then Republicans wanted to work with Obama to avoid the sequester by sending bills to the Senate to avert it and Harry Reid floored them each time. Obama then goes to the media and American people to brag that the Republicans were trying to do a deal to avoid the sequester and because they didn’t go along with granting more spending, the answer would be no to anything they suggested.
Now, the republicans aren’t putting up a major fight to stop the sequester. They seem fine with going along (compromising) with the President’s original intent and Obama and the Democrats are angry about it. So angry, they are going around telling everyone that the Republicans don’t want to compromise on fixing the sequester.
Did I miss something?
The Republicans have decided Obama’s sequester is what they were going to allow to happen thus “compromising” and the Democrats want to cry foul to the American people. Obama and the Democrats have predicted the Apocalypse for the last week or two only to move the goal post the last couple of days. Low Information Congressmen are getting in front of the camera telling Americans 170M jobs are going to be affected when they are less than 135M in the workforce today.
Oh the humanity.
As conservatives, this message of liberal crying should be easy to explain to all. Don’t let this crisis get away from you. Use Obama and the Democrats inept message against them when explaining the truth of what’s going on.
