The Sky is Falling

Obama, the man who signed the sequestration cuts into law, has tried feverishly on the campaign trail to portray Republicans as the evil culprits behind the cuts. And what’s worse Obama is using these budget cuts to fear monger citizens into believing the cuts would cripple the economy. Obama’s antics remind me of the cartoon when Chicken Little screams the “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” Obama has cried wolf on many occasions, but this may be liberal extremism at its worse. Even Democrats, especially those in red states, are trying to distance themselves from the President and his unfounded hysteria. This behavior only proves Obama, and most liberals, feel that the country cannot run without government intervention, interference, mandates, rules, regulations, and obstruction. Below is quote from an article on Townhall:

“President Barack Obama hopes to spark a pitchfork revolt against Republicans over sequester-induced budget cuts — but many Democrats fret that he’s undermined that effort with an early strategy marred by hype, poor planning and muddled messaging. The stakes in the sequester debate aren’t quite as high as they were during the debt ceiling battle of 2011, but Democratic veterans of the Obama-Republican wars of 2009 and 2010 are getting a creepy sense of déjà vu from a White House messaging shop they believe fumbled the rollouts of the stimulus and health care initiatives. Over the past few days, Obama and his team have pulled back from a kick-off strategy that portrayed the $84 billion in automatic cuts this year as a parade of instant horrors — hellish waits at airports, a quick cascade of private job losses resulting from voided federal contracts, teachers immediately sacked. That’s part of a “recalibration,” according to one Obama insider, intended to take the focus off the veracity of the administration’s claims — and back on congressional Republicans who have refused to give ground on new tax revenue demanded by Obama as a condition of any long-term budget deal.”

What has Obama’s undies tied in a knot is these cuts are forcing him to cut back on his campaigning and his ability to take his fear mongering, lies, hysteria, and misinformation to the public. No more multimillion dollar vacations to play golf with womanizer Tiger Woods, no more opportunities to raise money, no more opportunities to push for gun control, and no more opportunities to demonize and blame conservatives for his shortcomings. This is what has Obama mad; these cuts will affect his lifestyle.

  1. Chicken Little is a good analogy for Obama, Patrick. Some people think he overestimated the gullibility of his followers. I guess time will tell.
