John Boehner: Sequester Is Product Of Obama's 'Failed Leadership'

Source: www.huffingtonpost.com

"Most Americans are just hearing about this Washington creation for the first time: the sequester," Boehner writes. "What they might not realize from Mr. Obama's statements is that it is a product of the president's own failed leadership."

Boehner continues, "There is nothing wrong with cutting spending that much -- we should be cutting even more -- but the sequester is an ugly and dangerous way to do it."

WTF? Is Day night in his world? Only the House can put forth these kind of bills, but to listen to the comments on this story online King Obama wrote it, passed it, and signed it into law without any Republican help whatsoever. I swear, now they are just making stuff up!

1. Anyone else get the feeling that there is a universal press release form on Boehner's

computer that concludes with "it is a product of the president's own failed leadership"?

8. Can we send a copy to Harry Reid and edit two words?

It doesn't seem that hard to do.

3. Boehner has lost every

political fight he's ever picked with Obama.

The public continues to blame the Republican Congress with being a bunch of intransigent whining little shitheads and they will continue to do so.

4. Paul Ryan wrote it (the sequestration)



BTW failed leadership is now the boiler plate talking point when it comes
to speaking of the President ..... I just has this e mail from a right winger;

"After 4 years of a failed presidency of campaigning, not leadership. It continues."

6. Lies, lies, and more lies.

Given that the words came out of a Republican politician's mouth, I am not surprised.

7. Funny, I thought it was a result of the GOP passing the bill before the President

signed it and after they'd blocked any progress in the Joint committee (to reduce debt by $1.2 Trillion over 10 years).

9. Exactly.

They all signed on to this thing.

Now they're shocked, shocked that it might come to pass!

10. What bothers me is our wonderful media allowing the misrepresentation and lies to go unquestioned.

11. Boehner is kind of hoping no one notices his 2011 powerpoint used to define the sequester.

12. Cue up the video

where he claims he got 98% of what he wanted under the sequester. That should put an end to this nonsense with the thinking community. His supporters do not fall into that category.

13. I'm so tired of these bullies

not taking responsibility for their doings. Blame, blame, blame cause in their eyes the GOP think they are the chosen ones from their GAWD. They can do no wrong. The GOP rather see America suffer all in the name of that almighty dollar which is being gathered up by their masters, the greedy corporations.

14. There are going to be alot of angry folks if this sequester thing kicks in.

Many of them GOP consituents. Job cuts, hours cut, investments and stock market decline, businesses hurt, housing values drop.. etc, etc, etc... it could get very ugly.

I think Boehner and his gang will have to give in and fix this or there will be revolt.

15. He doesn't have the basic understanding of how our government works.

Republicans are the laziest fucks on the face of the planet. They sit in Washington and then complain about how awful they are so they do as little as possible.

16. Let's obstruct him at every turn

in the most unreasonable ways possible and then blame it on him. We have no responsibility for doing nothing.

Yet again, the GOP shows that they are willing to hurt the country and ruin people's lives in their quest for power.

I hope the American people are finally catching on to their game -- the ones not so blinded by their hatred of Obama that they would rather trash the economy than let Obama claim any success.
