Same guy who once said "the sequestration will not happen". I wonder if the notion of "lying" even cross Obama's mind anymore..

Phase 6. The Plutocrats are happy again.
This sounds like either Huffington Post or Fox News view through the crystal ball.

Unbelievable.. doesn't even understand what he is supporting but will simply go along with it in the name of Obama... CINL, stuff like this gives your position on important matters ZERO credibility. I'm referencing this post going forward as an indication of your willingness to examine both sides of an issue based on merit and logic. Perhaps you should unplug yourself from MSNBC's umbilical chord.

I also find it interesting that the dems are trying to hit the people where it hurts. For instance, they are planning on cutting TSA agents...not because they NEED to cut them (they have a heap of other parts they can cut and not effect the people) but this will anger the masses, and they will be more inclined to believe the GOP is to blame, and is "ruining their lives."

For instance....Ray Lahood claimed that he will need to cut TSA agents and Air Traffic controllers to meet his cuts....really? Is that the most important thing? This is what the Transportation secretary feels is the LEAST important thing that he can cut? How about the tens of millions of dollars he has to spend on Alaska trains? http://www.fta.dot.gov/newsroom/12286_14948.html
How about the sidewalks in florida that go nowhere that are just for "job creation?" How about the 22MM for trolleys in Missouri? http://www.looptrolley.org/loop_trolley_news.html Surely during such hard times, we can cut things that will impact the fewest people? But no, they need to play politics, and keep turning the country against itself and against each other.

I think these politicians should be tried and executed. What they are doing is despicable. Using the people as pawns to further their own agendas.

But honestly, do you see the point? If we NEED to cut, wouldn't it be a little more wise to cut the trolleys first, and keep our airports running properly? This playing politics isn't gonna end well me thinks.

I do, and have stated as such in this thread and other threads.

Honestly, it could be either.

HuffPo could be saying this in order to garner support for Obama's vision of our path forward.

Fox news could be saying the same thing as a doom and gloom piece of what Obama is trying to do to the country.

Regardless, the phases outlined are hilarious and simply created in an effort to support an outlook of dire consequences if we don't do something quickly.

Everything seems to be urgent with BHO.

Obama won for a reason. He's the people's choice. He's the executive champion of the greatest, best country God has ever given man on the face of the Earth.

He is arguably the greatest President of all time.

Don't be spoon fed propaganda from your idols on Fox News.

This forum does more opinion than info. There are a handful of members whom I see as credible and provide posts I will actually sit down and read.
Go hold a political discussion with your average American and then report back here.

Do you roll a dice every morning to decide which personality you will be posting as for the day?

Wednesday? More like Trollsday!

Manufactured is spot on. The false narrative regarding across the board cuts vs logically making strategic budget cuts is insulting to any reasonable persons intelligence. After all we really aren't talking about draconian cuts in spending. This pretty much amounts to a slowing down of growth. How did we ever survive prior to Obama's ballooning government? I'm waiting for planes to fall out of the skies, schools imploding cats and dogs sleeping together, you know total anarchy. LOL.
