So, what will happen in the coming weeks when the dire predictions from Sequestration fail to impress anyone outside the beltway? What will happen to all these babbling cabinet members when the skies do not fall, the floods do not come, and the end of the world does not happen?
What will it be like when fools (like this) are eating their crow?
His presentation was similarly dramatic to the claims he made on CBS on Sunday, insisting that “there are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall.” But, when questioned further about that claim in his press briefing today, well… awkward:
When he was pressed in a White House briefing Wednesday to come up with an example, Duncan named a single county in West Virginia and acknowledged, “whether it’s all sequester-related, I don’t know.”
And, as it turns out, it isn’t.
This is going to be an interesting spring and summer – because this is when President Obama is exposed as a hyperventilating fool. One thing is not sustainable – and that is the doom and gloom angst being peddled by the left right now. And for good reason:
My bet is you’ll see stories about the bottomless pit of waste, fraud, pork, cronyism, malinvestment, and idiocy that characterize so much of business as usual in Washington. With a glut of examples a mere Google search away, it won’t be long before even the most disengaged voter—facing some Obama-generated inconvenience and having these stories shoved in his face—asks, “What do you mean I can’t get my passport renewed? Couldn’t they fire Obama’s $100,000 a year dog trainer instead?” And if this phony “austerity” is imposed on the rest of us, how do you think the public will react to the First Lady’s next multi-million dollar vacation?
The best thing about the first post-sequester news cycle will be watching an army of think tanks, budget analysts, and media commentators roll out, in exquisite detail, a long list of discretionary spending programs that could easily be trimmed instead of whatever Obama decides to whack with a meat axe.
Solyndra and all the green-boondoggle-debacles will be trotted back out and compared to the cuts dollar to dollar for the madness the Obama administration is planning. How could Solyndra get money instead of ICE, or DOE or our troop?. With billions lost in green madness, do you think the Feds can say ‘we had to make those cuts, we had no choice’?
Pass the popcorn. Sequestration arrives tomorrow and all the end-of-the-world nutters are going to be waiting for the Mother Ship to land and save them from extinction. After all, is there really a difference between these two men (Heaven’s Gate) when it comes to their dire predictions and lapdog followers?
