Obama decries manufactured crises, blame-gaming in sequestration speech

President Obama took his perpetual campaign on the road this afternoon to scare the workers at Newport News Shipbuilding about the looming sequestration cuts.

Well, no wonder they’re glum! You see, according to Obama, if the minor spending cuts go into effect, we’re in for a heap of trouble:

“In a few days, Congress might allow a series of arbitrary budget cuts to take place—known in Washington as ‘the sequester.’” #JobsOverCuts

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

Obama: “The sequester uses a meat-cleaver approach to gut critical investments in things like education & national security.” #JobsOverCuts

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

Meat cleaver? Violent rhetoric alert!

Obama: These cuts “will weaken America’s economic recovery, our military readiness, and the basic services the American people depend on.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

“These cuts are wrong. They’re not smart. They’re not fair. They’re a self-inflicted wound that doesn’t have to happen.” #JobsOverCuts

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

Why is Obama complaining about the sequester. Didn’t he promise in a debate that there was no way it would happen?

— Jon Gabriel (@ExJon) February 26, 2013

Why yes, yes he did.

“These cuts are wrong. They aren’t smart, they aren’t fair.” – guy who dreamed up sequester, signed it, threatened to veto its replacement.

— Rudy Drewliani (@FigDrewton) February 26, 2013

Well, if you’re gonna get technical

President Obama: “We can’t ask seniors and working families like yours to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction.” #JobsOverCuts

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

Obama: “We won’t grow the middle class simply by shifting the cost of health care or college onto families that are already struggling.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 26, 2013

POTUS @ Newport News Shipbldg, maker VA-class subs: “hundreds of thousands of jobs are in jeopardy because of politics in Washington.”

— Jay Carney (EOP) (@PressSec) February 26, 2013

Shipbuilders and Americans everywhere will ultimately wind up starving, homeless, or worse:

Obama: “Sequester is a pretty bad name. But the effects are even worse than the name.”

— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) February 26, 2013

Obama on “not smart” cuts: “You don’t want to choose between – do I close funding for disabled kid or the poor kid”

— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) February 26, 2013

But let him be clear: the last thing we need is more manufactured crises:

Obama: “We’ve got to stop having these crises manufactured every month. You guys must be tired of these things.”

— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) February 26, 2013

Obama: “The greatest nation on earth can’t just keep drifting from one crisis to another.”

— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) February 26, 2013

Or blame-gaming:

Obama: “I’m not interested in spin, I’m not interest in playing a blame game. At this point, all I’m interested in is solving problems”

— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) February 26, 2013

No sirree!

Obama says he’s “not interested in playing a blame game” just after saying Congress is about to drag country into another Great Recession

— David Nakamura (@DavidNakamura) February 26, 2013

HAHAHAHAHA MT @clusterstock: OBAMA: “I’ve run my last election. … I’m not interested in spin, I’m not interested in playing a blame game.”

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) February 26, 2013

Obama said he’s not interested in playing the blame game. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL bit.ly/15gMzgP LOLOLOLOLOLOL #tcot #p2 #sequester

— RB (@RBPundit) February 26, 2013

Just kidding!

POTUS: “too many R’s in Congress…refuse to compromise an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes & special interest tax breaks.”

— Jay Carney (EOP) (@PressSec) February 26, 2013

But just so y’all know, he’s still as humble as ever:

Obama: “The one thing about being president is that after four years, you become pretty humble.”

— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) February 26, 2013

So we can be grateful for that. We’re not nearly as grateful, however, that we’ve still got nearly four more years of this garbage:

If you would actually lead & solve problems @barackobama , we wouldn’t be going from manufactured crisis to crisis.

— Bobo(@thegreatbobo) February 26, 2013

How, just how does this guy sleep at night? The lies are head spinning.

— Jerome Hudson(@JeromeEHudson) February 26, 2013

Good Lord Obama is shameless.
