Obama was for the sequester before he was against it
Dear Reader may occasionally do fine work with a teleprompter and a professionally written script, but that’s not the same as leading the country or governing.
Now it seems the President is railing against the pending sequestration and he blames Congress accordingly. Yes, shocking, isn’t it?
The problem—and don’t expect the media to whisper a word of this—is that Obama was the one who signed the sequestration bill into law. (Actually, the media may not even know it normally takes the President’s signature for something to become law.)
Apparently, like those who signed their too-expensive mortgages, Dear Reader didn’t understand what he was getting himself into. (As an aside, Dear Reader is, and remains—without any empirical evidence like standardized test scores, writings, or transcripts—our most intelligent president every. Don’t believe me? Just ask Jay Carney or David Axelrod.)
So it would seem, like John Kerry, Broncobama was for the bill before he was against it. Then, when Obama signed the bill into law, he chose to be against it.
It may be incoherent but it’s all the President has.
