Obama admits: Yeah, sequester was my idea

The administration had been vigorously trying to blame Republicans for creating the sequester cuts, even though Bob Woodward reported they were the Obama Admin’s idea. The Whit Hosue finally admitted it today – so why in the world would Obama design cuts like this?

“Here’s why he wanted sequester, and this is really important for you to understand because one thing that you have to start telling your friends, slap them across the face: Wake up. And you need to stay awake as much as you possibly can. What’s happening in Greece and happening all over, there are marches now in ‑‑ gosh, where was it? There was a march in ‑‑ hang on. Let me see if I can find it again real quick. A march in ‑‑ shoot. I can’t remember. It’s someplace over in Europe. And they are ‑‑ the UN is now monitoring ‑‑ no, I’m sorry. It was in Australia. They cut the welfare payments to the poor, including single moms, and the UN is now investigating why they would cut welfare payments in Australia. And so now people are marching in the streets in Australia, in Greece, in France, in Italy, in Great Britain against austerity, which are budget cuts. You have to have budget cuts.”

“So why would the president make ‑‑ we’ve said if you want ‑‑ if you’re serious, you want to have budget cuts, you make budget cuts. Why would he design this? He just admitted it this weekend that he did indeed design these budget cuts. Why would you design it to be this way? You would design it to be this way because you’re not serious about cutting the budget. You want to make sure no one ever seriously considers cutting the budget. He is laying the groundwork for the marches in the streets against ‑‑ he is designing Greece.”

“When you see what’s happening in Greece and in Spain where they are rioting in the streets, remember what Frances Fox Piven said? Why aren’t there people in the streets? Remember this was all designed after the Watts Riots. So he is ‑‑ he is now training people that austerity is bad, that any budget cut is bad. While we were saying that, you know, you can’t find $85 billion? He spent a million dollars on the golf course with Tiger Woods. A million dollars of your tax dollars went for him to play golf with Tiger Woods. Million. You can’t find $85 billion in a $4 trillion budget? What, are you crazy? Of course you can. Of course you can. But he couldn’t. So he wanted to furlough all the federal workers. He wants to federal ‑‑ he wants to furlough anybody, especially unions. Go after those union jobs. And also cut and make sure that you feel as much pain as you possibly can. You don’t feel pain yet, but eventually he’ll start blaming everything on this. Absolutely everything.”

“It’s why the GOP kept coming back and saying, ‘There’s other ways to cut, there’s other ways to cut, there’s other ways to cut,’ and he refused all of them. Because he wants pain to be associated with any cut whatsoever. Because he is training us to march in the streets against any kind of austerity. We’re the last ones out, guys. We’re the last ones out. Every other Western nation is already out on the streets marching against austerity.”

    Ohhhh, so I guess Bob Woodward didn’t regret what he said last week huh?  So I’m waiting for Sperling to apologize for threatening him, and I’m waiting for Obama to apologize for being a lying sack of shit.  I’m not really holding my breath on those two things.

    Obama indeed is responsible for the sequestration:

    Obama’s idea
    Obama’s hype
    Obama’s failure to deal with it
    Obama’s fault across the board.

    He is still blaming the Republicans today for the cuts that are his and that of the Democratic party. They seek to have a one-party rulership over the nation, and the final establishment of communism upon all of us.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So we are being set up for mass chaos and riots and such when the austerity moves have to be implemented? How long until they happen in truth or due to the manipulation and fabrication of a ‘wag the dog’ incident by the administration?

    If we are to have austerity cuts start first with Obama, his entire administration, and most of Congress.

    Painful cuts need to be made.  I lost my job and had to take one that paid half as much.  So if I can do a 50% cut in the budget (and still be ok) so can the gov’t.  Lay half of the Federal workers off and see how long it takes us to notice.

    Why did no one notice this at the time?  As soon as the pussyfooting started over the debt ceiling, I knew they would get to a deadline and come up with some stupid way to “save” us, and it would only put us further away from a real solution, and satisfy Obama’s agenda in terms of the destruction of America.  I hate when I’m right about him; it’s always means bad news.

    Obama and his handlers are staging this whole thing carefully, so that when people are PO’d enough to take to the streets, he can blame it on the GOP no matter what really happened.  That’s his game plan; works so far, sad to say.  There are too many folks who like him/his stuff, and too many in Congress who are like minded.   No matter what sets us off, the Teflon Man will be OK.  Until he has to answer to God for what he’s done to this nation.

    I get your drift but I don’t think he killed JFK.  I think he was just what he said he was: the patsy.  However, Obama is too sheltered by the people like him who won’t do what those did who really killed JFK.  Our president was killed because he wouldn’t do something they wanted him to do; Obama will do whatever.

    I think you hit a good point. We could lay off half the gov workers and not really notice. I think where O made his mistake on this one, is who would be affected by the cuts. The low info voter and ward of the gov, will not be affected – the only thing that they care about is if there $$ get to them on time. That part is not being cut. The parks dept said they would limit travel, training and overtime. Not much affect there. FBI says they will not be able to prosecute the Wall Street crooks – no surprise. Cut in TSA, welfare takers will not notice. Less border security – will anyone notice? Should be interesting to see if O can force his minions to make the drastic cuts that are unnecessary but will make someone notice that the gov is spending/wasting less money.

    You could be wright BUT it could also be much like the occupy groups. The leaders of the middle/upper class in this country are more aligned with the TEA party than Occupy. TEA party will not be taking to the streets, Occupy group is/was ineffective. Most of the gov wards do not have the initiative to take to the streets and if they do they will just be destroying their communities. I do not think it will make O look good. 
    Then again,O has succeeded many times when it was not expected.

    This weekend Kerry announced sending Egypt $160,000,000. So we can’t afford $85,000,000 in cuts, but we can afford to send Egypt twice that amount. Obama is laughing at the stupidity of Americans, and this is one time I agree with him. We are indeed stupid for letting him take our country down.

  • Anonymous

    OK, it’s only Glenn’s reading into the situation and may or may not be true. But, typical of the American way, the cuts are coming to the people who can least afford it. First, Obama created the millions dependent on the government and now he has no choice but to deal with it.  The REAL cuts should be made in Washington. Imagine a 10% cut across the board in Washington and the pentagon. It would hardly make a dent in its efficiency, but the savings would be in the billions that is needed. We are seeing a slow demise of the good old USofA, just like most businesses that have gone belly up. If you cut the bottom workers first, the top ones are too expensive to support and that’s when you go belly up.

    Look at any of Obama’s accomplishments.  OH Wait !  There isn’t any. This man or I should say person is void of any accomplishments.
    All of his associates are either communist or like the white hating preacher and his mentor.
    This man hates America, the nation that gave him every thing he’s got. Education, Entitlement’s galore.
    We have a spoiled brat in the white house that refuses to accept his own responsibilities.
    He’s still campaigning even after the election. WHAT FOR ? Oh yeah he wants Michelle to run in 2016. Look out America.

    FeaturesMarch/ April 2012Obama’s Top 50 AccomplishmentsBy Paul Glastris, Ryan Cooper, and Siyu HuFacebookTwitterDiggRedditStumbleUponDelicious(Also check out the main article, The Incomplete Greatness of Barack Obama, and the issue’s Editor’s Note.)1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February 11.12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.13. Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.14. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years, $36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.15. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.17. Coordinated International Response to Financial Crisis: To keep world economy out of recession in 2009 and 2010, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to emerging market countries, which kept them liquid and avoided crises with their currencies.18. Passed Mini Stimuli: To help families hurt by the recession and spur the economy as stimulus spending declined, signed series of measures (July 22, 2010; December 17, 2010; December 23, 2011) to extend unemployment insurance and cut payroll taxes.19. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.20. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.21. Tightened Sanctions on Iran: In effort to deter Iran’s nuclear program, signed Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act (2010) to punish firms and individuals who aid Iran’s petroleum sector. In late 2011 and early 2012, coordinated with other major Western powers to impose sanctions aimed at Iran’s banks and with Japan, South Korea, and China to shift their oil purchases away from Iran.

    Is it possible that we don’t understand just how brilliant Barack Hussein Obama is because we are not very bright?  Chances are very good that every single one of the posters on this page has an I.Q. that is a great deal higher than the Muslim in the White House.  No, I can’t prove it from this side, but Obama proves how stupid he is every day by what he says and what he does.  You want me to give you some examples.  I can’t, because I’m using the accusatory approach that has been so successful for Obama during his entire political career and if I gave you examples then I wouldn’t be doing exactly what he is doing and my experiment would be disturbed or distorted or discombloomanated to the point that my argument for taking dead aim at this guys political record would no longer be valid.  I have to be careful or you will discover that, like Obama, I don’t have a clue as to what I’m taling about.  So, are we okay with this new type of political approach to destroying the opposition rather than solving the problems we face? If not, I will just ignore your criticism and go on about my business of campaigning against every single thing that Obama stands for.  Hey, it works for him, why wouldn’t work for me?

    There is a certain literary quality to what you’ve just said.  The sharper your critique and the more focused your vehemence and vitriol towards Obama, the more likely you will be to get discredited.  The significance of the Woodward story is that it shines light on the change in the Democratic party.  He sunk Nixon, and now he is trying to sink Obama.  One was a Republican, and one was a Democrat.  It USED to be that a journalist’s credibility could be directly linked to his objectivity.  NOW a journalist’s integrity (in the eyes of MSM) is measured by how far they distance themselves from Fox News and how closely aligned they are to the new one party system.  Many Republican voters now think that if they just compromise on a few things, like abortion, amnesty, and giving in on the budget, they will win a few elections.  I’m telling you right now, the House of Representatives will be Democratically controlled in November 2014 because Republicans will vote against every bill aimed at funding Obamatax.  They will be chastised so badly next year, the likes of which we’ve never seen before.  We now have to be careful about looking skilled or outstanding.  It doesn’t mesh with the “collective.”

    Well, he DID win a Nobel Peace Prize moments after getting in office.  Oh wait, he didn’t win it.  He did nothing to even earn it.  Since Obumhole likes to tell us that WE never ‘built that’.  I tell YOU, you moslem Kenyan bastard, YOU never earned that medal.  And YOU haven’t done anything to earn being called ‘president’.  To me, you’re just a pile of sh(BLEEP)t.  No wait, even real ‘sh(BLEEP)t is useful, as fertilizer.

    Obama wants the cuts to be a painful as possible, but not to have people in the street.  He wants to have 2009 back with the Dems in control of the whole government,  If that happens
    we will not know this country in 2016. We will be Greece and Spain and we will fall.
    The people that voted for him are not to blame for his re-election. It is the Christians that would not vote for a Mormon,  The Republicans that wanted a more conservative candidate  and the establishment of the Republican party that wanted a moderate.
    Not one of those people would hire Obama to do their taxes, as a financial advisor, their Minister, their physician, but they put him in charge of all that by staying home
    The Libtards are doing a good job.  They are involved, they work, donate, they do what it takes to win and they fight for what they believe in.
    The other side does not want to be involved in Politics, they do not want to do the grass roots
    effort, they will write checks and go to church and pray that God take care of everything for them.
    HOWS THAT WORKING!!

    I think all of them should go.  If we are to get some changes in Washington we have to get the vote out in 2014.  Let’s over through them all.  I am so sick of Washington I don’t even like turning my Television on anymore.  Hey, maybe I’ll get rid of my TV and then I won’t have to see what is going on.  I am just about sick of being informed.  We need a miracle, his name is Jesus!!!

    Obama is the Manchurian Candidate for this and his Administration is a fifth column.  Progressivism started way back with Woodrow Wilson and it’s snowballed to what we have now.  This country is full of selfish people in denial.  Never underestimate the power of denial.

    You may notice faster than you think because those fed workers also contribute to spending and businesses will lose that money therefore just speeding up the crash….businesses will notice. There are a lot of fed workers, since government is so big. I am sure you cut back when you had to take a job that paid less just think about all of these people. It may not be as bad as they are leading on, but it will have consequences to our economy and Obama is well aware of that why do you think he hasn’t stopped it.

    All the nonsense coming from the WH has been planned for years.   These Marxists have studied past dictators and put together a way to do it and so we have all kinds of lies, deception, coming from the WH crew to bring America down.  Do you think they[‘ll suffer for it, no they’ll take their millions and go and leave the rest of us in the pot to boil.  They talk about the rich but they themselves are rich.  It’s not the rich they are really after, it’s the middle man who works hard for what he gets and they definitely want to bring the middle class down.  They’re very transparent in their deceptions if you stop and think about what they are really doing.  America needs to wake up and smell that burning coffee.

    good suggestion but have you noticed that whole crowd is excluded  from OB’s mandates and laws.  Hasn’t anyone asked them why?  I havn’t heard it yet.  If that thousands of pages full of stuff for us is so good for us why  aren’t they abiding by it?
    Remember how some of them even hadn’t paid their taxes and no one seems to care. This nation is now run by a bunch of Chicago crooks, they formed their own style Mafia.  Greed for money and power is the road to a bad end.

    It pretty much looks like you just pasted some research that somebody else did.  The inherent spin on every single solitary point makes your post convoluted.  There are entire books dedicated to refuting everything you’ve put down here.  You’ve failed to express yourself.  You pasted this long post in an apparent attempt to prop yourself up as a critical thinker.  Everyone can see straight through it “Guest.”  Why didn’t you just post the link where you found all this garbage and post some critical thinking points of your own?  Oh wait, that would mean waking up from your intellectually lazy malaise and using your brain for once.  You replied to a different post of mine saying that I have no reading comprehension.  If you knew how much I actually read then you’d be kicking yourself over saying that.

    What a joke. Everything you mentioned was a failure!! Why are there 4.4 million less working Americans since Obama took office after spending close to a trillion dollars? Only jobs created were Government Union paybacks. Affordable Care Act is being exposed for what it is, a fraud. Everyone is paying more for health insurance although we were promised otherwise. No one bothered to read the damn thing before it was passed and they are changing the rules as they go. We may have drawn down troops in Iraq and Afganistan but we are involved now in Syria and Libya to name a few and are spending more than we were 5 years ago. And the reform you speak of has accomplished nothing. The Great Recession was due to Democrats insisting EVERYONE should be able to buy a home whether they had the ability to pay or not and that is not disputable. Your post is incorrect on almost everything. You should do some real research before you comment.

    ” It’s someplace over in Europe. And they are ‑‑ the UN is now monitoring ‑‑ no, I’m sorry. It was in Australia. They cut the welfare payments to the poor, including single moms, and the UN is now investigating why they would cut welfare payments in Australia. And so now people are marching in the streets in Australia”

    a. Can you link sources to these Australian marches, as I can’t seem to be able to find them.
    b. And the UN investigation into Australian austerity measures.

    You know – just so the good folks here can check out The Truth.

    In the darkest moments are unparalleled opportunities for change Circular Letter to the States -  George Washington “Such is our situation, and such are our prospects: but notwithstanding the cup of blessing is thus reached out to us, notwithstanding happiness is ours, if we have a disposition to seize the occasion and make it our own; yet, it appears to me there is an option still left to the United States of America, that it is in their choice, and depends upon their conduct, whether they will be respectable and prosperous, or contemptible and miserable as a Nation; This is the time of their political probation, this is the moment when the eyes of the whole World are turned upon them, this is the moment to establish or ruin their national Character forever, this is the favorable moment to give such a tone to our Federal Governmennt”

    Watch the sequester undermine the economy. Beck admits he doesn’t understand the economy, so mark my words: the growth in the next year will veer back toward recession because Republicans refuse to compromise on revenues needed to avoid this sequester.

    Actually that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Here in Canada they haven’t starting marching yet. In fact I believe that marching will be a norm far sooner in the USA then it will here. We will follow, no doubt, but we haven’t got a moron lie teller as Prime Minister as you have as President.
