Amatuer Hour

This sequestration crap is getting old. One of the things I find particularly telling about it, and which you'll have a difficult time gleaning from the mainstream media, it the absolute amateurish way the obama administration is dealing with it. For example:

Obama Administration Caught Lying About Teacher Layoffs Due to Obama Sequester
The descriptions of the post-sequester landscape that have been coming out of the Obama Administration have been alarming, specific--and, in at least some cases, hyped.

“There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

When he was pressed in a White House briefing Wednesday to come up with an example, Duncan named a single county in West Virginia and acknowledged, “whether it’s all sequester-related, I don’t know.”

And, as it turns out, it isn’t.
Lying sack of shit...

Another example:
Neither the White House nor the Homeland Security Department headquarters were made aware of the Immigration Customs and Enforcement decision to release detainees ahead of the pending forced spending cuts, an administration official said Wednesday.

Separately, at a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the decision was made by ICE "without any input from the White House."
Yeah, right. As if some flunky in the obama regime would dare make such a politically loaded decision on his or her own. If you believe that fairy tale I've got a bridge I'd like to sell you.

And as previously reported, the obama administration is claiming that sequestration will affect government departments that don't even exist.
In compliance with The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, the OMB sent a detailed report to Congress in September 2012. But there's a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns against would affect an agency that no longer exists--and didn't exist when the OMB sent its report to congress.

The first line item on page 121 of the OMB's September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget ... the problem is that the National Drug Intelligence Center shuttered its doors on June 15, 2012--three months before the OMB issued its report to Congress.
Finally, to round things out, here's a blast from the past. On Nov. 21, 2011, "Obama told reporters he would veto any attempt to get rid of the automatic cuts which are set to kick in as a part of the sequester..."

Yes, you read that right. A little over one year ago barry said that he would veto any legislation passed by congress that would override the sequestration that he proposed, initiated, and supported.
“I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts,” said Obama from the White House’s briefing room...
Lying hypocritical worthless piece of shit is an understatement...
