I guess the next government manufactured crisis is coming up next week with the sequestration. I am just worn down from all the fiscal cliffs and debt ceilings and sequestrations. All I know is it’s no way to govern, and it will not lead to any good outcomes. I can’t even work myself up to writing a particularly long article about it.
But I will say that while President Obama and the Democrats are out casting blame in regards to the sequestration, a Republican representative (Justin Amash) had a “tweet” that rings with truth to me. He said…er, rather “tweeted”, “You don’t sign a bill unless you’re OKAY w/the consequences. It’s Being President 101.” It’s hard to argue with that, and something President Obama needs to take to heart. 95 Democrats in the House voted for it, and 45 Democrats in the Senate voted for it. A Democrat President signed it. Without Democratic support, this fails.
It’s a stupid gimmick and it shouldn’t have been done. But President Obama and the Democrats can’t pretend to have had nothing to do with it.
