Walter Myers III: Obama’s Sequester Gambit

22 Feb

Obama-Winking-300x200My Conservative BFF Walter Myers III shared a brilliant post on Facebook regarding President Barack Obama’s sequester gambit & I had to share this with you all:

The sequester that President Obama HIMSELF suggested, championed, and signed into law, is now the Republicans taking a “meat cleaver” to the budget. This is what Obama does, and he does it well because those who support him simply will not believe that the man is operating in bad faith and not in their best interests. How can he possibly blame this on Republicans? Even if it were their fault, it is 2.3% of total spending! That is $85 billion of $3.6 TRILLION of government spending.

Let me tell you why he is doing this. He has NEVER had ANY plans of cutting spending, period. The idea has always been to tell the American people he would cut spending, and then when it comes time to deliver the cuts, he trots out policemen, firemen, and public servants as sacrificial lambs, hoping to appeal to your heart strings: “Oh my God, we can’t cut these people’s salaries!” Now the reason he does this is because you are stupid. He doesn’t expect you to then think to yourself, “Why does he ALWAYS threaten to do the maximum damage to people instead of cutting government waste where the waste really does exist? That’s hardly a good leader he always threatens the least of us just to get his way.” Well if you’re a liberal, then he knows you won’t think that way.

And of course, even though he got a tax increase last month, he is now crying for more taxes on the wealthy instead of making those cuts, because he knows if he says the Republicans don’t want to raise taxes because they want to protect special interests such as big oil, you, like a Pavlovian dog, will say “Yeah, those Republicans are for special interests.” Well, this has NOTHING to do with special interests, period. But he just knows he can throw that in and a liberal won’t even recognize that was a purely political remark to appeal to emotions. Again, this sequester was HIS idea, and HE signed it into law. So how can this have anything to do with Republicans and special interests? It doesn’t. And again, he got his tax increase last month but is using this as an opportunity to raise taxes while making completely false charges against Republicans. Shameful. But you liberals apparently like that.

What Obama knows implicitly is that liberal are willing to even sacrifice the health of the economy to get “social progress.” That’s why he spends into oblivion and doesn’t give a damn about debt or deficits, except when he could score political points against George Bush. So let me ask you liberals this one question. If he runs the economy into the toilet, then what the hell good will be of your social programs and “social progress.” We will all be in starving and the country will be broke and in deep debt. What you SHOULD be doing, my liberal friends, is fighting your social battles at the state level, and stopping any Republican or Democrat from bankrupting your country. What you have made is a Faustian bargain, and you are bringing the whole country down in the process because you want to force your social views on every single American, instead of going to bat at the state level so people can have 50 choices that they can choose from that fits within their particular sensibilities.

You can’t get social progress and NOT get the concomitant profligate spending that Democrats do that has already bankrupted numerous cities, with Detroit and LA two huge Democratic cities set to fail. In time, within a generation, it will be this nation. You think it’s bad in Greece, just wait until it happens in the US. It won’t be pretty.

To put this in perspective, this sequester is the equivalent of you making $24,000 a year, putting $12,000 on a credit card and having a financial counselor ask you to cut $828 out of your budget so you can take on less debt. Yes, it may hurt, but you know you can’t continue this and need to get your spending under control. Just add nine zeroes to that and you see where our federal government is going, because we know what would happen to you eventually in that scenario.

Walter recommends “President Armageddon” from the Wall Street Journal.

    Spending cuts have to happen. I am tired of hearing political types from all over the spectrum talking about our MASSIVE debt, but yet NO ONE is willing to do what is necessary to pull us out.
    The spending needs to slow dramatically-that means a huge slow in government services in ALL departments. In addition, we need to increase taxes temporarily and work VERY hard on the profitability of the county-creating products and services that the world will be eager for. We need to supply ourselves with products that we can create for less money than it costs to import, and buy things overseas that are cheaper to import. That includes sending jobs out that are not being filled-like monotonous manufacturing.
    The government needs to be audited by an independent company. A company that will go into every department and wreak havoc on their comfortable ways. Eliminating the EPA from thousands of dollars in flyers. Ironic, huh? Firing workers that are not necessary to the department’s prime function.
    No one would like it if I ran things.
    Paying a government employee… Paying the government to do any service- costs at least TWICE as much then if it was done in the private sector. So lets start handling our own mail, paying for our own schools, and helping our own elderly. Lets save this country!
