Let me get this straight, Obama originally agreed to the sequester, then he couldn't get a budget done in time, well never has done one but that’s another story, he campaigned on how the world will no longer exist if the sequester goes thru, well has never stopped campaigning but that’s another story…now that time is up, the House offers him flexibility on how the cuts will be used but he refuses and threatens veto and more tax hikes??? My 9yr olds act more mature than this guy……..
Mr. Obama does what he does best, e.g. campaign. He does not do governance. So the proposition that he actually make some tough decisions has no appeal to him and will never occur.That is why he proposition that he minimize the effects of the cuts is dead on arrival.
It is the job of the congress to designate cuts not the president. Those who claim that Obama is a tyrant or that he thinks he is King should stop and thing--the president just refused an increase in presidential power offered him by the GOP House. While at this time it is a ploy to make Obama the target of criticism for their failure to do their job, the power would stay with the president in the future once the precedent is set.
