They sky is falling!

This crisis to crisis management that Obama and his minions are doing is really getting old. The propaganda machine of this Administration has been something to behold. Joseph Goebbels would be proud and envious.

Let the sequester happen. It’s the only way these idiots can cut any spending whatsoever, except by coercion. What an absolute failure in government.

The great overblown sequester panic
By RICH LOWRY

Prepare for the end of food safety as we have known it. For a breakdown in public order. For little children languishing in ignorance. If only Edward Gibbon were here to chronicle the devastation. On March 1, the fabric of our civilization begins to unwind.

That’s when the economy begins to stall and we turn our back on our values, all because the federal government will have to begin to cut a few tens of billions of dollars from the largest budget the world has ever known.

This is the lurid fairy tale spun by President Obama. In the fight over the sequester, he is resorting to the tried-and-true (and tiresome) strategy of every official confronted with unwelcome budget cuts, from the commander in chief to a lowly bureaucrat toiling at some school district: maximize the scaremongering and pain.

In fairty-tale terms, Obama is the princess and the sequester is the pea.

In Hans Christian Andersen terms, Obama is the princess and the sequester is the pea. Over the next 10 years, the sequester amounts to a $1.16 trillion cut, or roughly 3 cents on every federal dollar. If we can’t squeeze a couple of pennies out of every dollar, we might as well begin our great national bankruptcy proceedings right now.
