Now, lately, some people have been saying, well, maybe we'll just give the President some flexibility. He could make the cuts the way he wants and that way it won't be as damaging. The problem is when you're cutting $85 billion in seven months, which represents over a 10-percent cut in the defense budget in seven months, there's no smart way to do that. There's no smart way to do that.After hearing the idea floated that Republicans plan to give him power to decide which cuts to make in the upcoming sequester all of a sudden the President realizes that he's not smart enough to make the cuts. Listen to him say so! (see 1:07min video)
You don't want to have to choose between, let's see, do I close funding for the disabled kid, or the poor kid? Do I close this Navy shipyard or some other one? When you're doing things in a way that's not smart, you can't gloss over the pain and the impact it's going to have on the economy." —Barry Hussein Soetoro, president of the Democrat Party of the United States.
What’s interesting is the president has been governing like he is only the president of the Democrat Party implementing laws and policies that only benefit Democrats but in the long run hurting America. For instance the president impaneled a blue ribbon committee last year to do the hard work of recommending cuts needed to keep the economy from failing. Obama’s panel apparently wasn’t smart enough to make the cuts need to keep America solvent. They made no suggestions, in essence they failed. And now the president admits that he’s not smart enough to make the necessary cuts to save America’s economy either.
The Obama sequester was conceived by the President and Democrats and according to the president the cuts that he put forward will devastate our economy. And surprisingly there is not a smart Democrat anywhere in government that knows how to fix what the Democrats have broken. Democrats always talk about being smart. Where are the smart Democrats?
You voted for this America. Not very smart!
