SEQUESTER: Obama’s new ‘blame game’

President Obama blamed Bush, blamed Republicans, blamed Wall Street, blamed the tea party, blamed John Boehner and anybody who disagrees with his liberal agenda. He campaigns to spread his vision of “social justice” with fiery rhetoric.

It is becoming absurd and long-winded. He is losing credibility as a presidential leader. Never fear America, there is a new pulpit for Obama to preach his memorandum of the never-ending endeavor to prove his platform of big government and big spending.

The sequester issue is nothing more than a 2 percent reduction of government spending, which amounts to $85 billion carved from a spending spree of $ 1 trillion yearly deficit. Obama says this reduction would create social chaos from slashing firefighters to special education teachers. If you believed this rhetoric then the whole country would be crumbling and the American ideal would be threatened at the core! Oh please!

This “gloom and doom” mindset reverbs mostly to his supporters and does nothing but divide this country. It’s just more of his “us against them” policy to prove his big government and big spending agenda.

A president should lead. There is no leadership here. He is a slick Chicago politician who is maneuvering his liberal agenda for the 2014 midterm elections. He wants Democrats to take the House and destroy conservative opposition. Then he can do what he wants.

The roadblocks are gone. Can America survive with an uncontrolled Obama agenda? Think about it.
