How many people really think that
(1)the "sequester" is solely the fault of Republicans - because as I recall it was an agreement made between Congress and Obama, and if Obama didn't follow up to make sure it didn't happen with his promised spending cuts, then it is his own fault.
(2) even with the sequester - who is making decisions on WHAT gets cut? I am actually seeing sheeple saying the sequester is the reason why Customs & Border patrol has slowed down at cruise ships.
Has it occured to anyone that Congress does not run the Dept of Homeland Security, or the TSA? Those are federal agencies.
So - even if the Sequester means mandated cuts, the decision on what gets cut is made by the federal branch (Obama) - not the republicans in Congress.
BOTTOM LINE -
Our President is a drama queen.
He chose to close the white house tours off to cub scouts, and he is the one making sure cruisers are inconvenienced, and he is doing it so the sheeple who believe everything the media says will think it is the fault of Congress that we are being inconvenienced.
I bring up the $50 million in new TSA uniforms that were delivered the same day the sequester took effect.
Do you not think they could manage in the same uniforms - or possibly even buy their own like the rest of us do, and that $50-million could be used to keep border agents on the job in cruise terminals?
How many vacations has Obama taken just since Christmas? I believe he is up to three or four now. Air Force One costs almost a $million per trip. Plus his security and entourage.
When Obama travels it requires hundreds of agents just to keep him safe. If the Sequester is so bad - why is Obama not cutting back on his own expenses??????
What is more important - US getting off of cruise ships, or Obama playing golf with Tiger Woods?
Why is he making us, the public suffer? Because its all politics. He is making it hard on you and blaming someone else. That really borders on anti-social, narcissistic behavior.
Gad, I feel sorry for the people who actually believe anyone, especially the prez, is running this country effectively. Janet Napolitano, really? Remember, she was our AZ governor before she went to DHS, and she was a total disaster here, too.
Obama could not have possibly picked a worse person for that job.
