John Boehner, Liar of the House of Representatives, has announced his intention to back out of the automatic sequestration of defense spending triggered by the failure of the bipartisan (constitutionally dubious IMHO) “Super Committee” to come to an agreement on the budget. Boehner and House GOPers will offer legislation to replace the sequestration, presumably with even more drastic cuts to domestic programs.
LOOK, EVERYBODY! LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID! HOW UTTERLY STUPID WOULD YOU HAVE TO BE TO TAKE THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP’S WORD ON ANYTHING AFTER WITNESSING THE BALDFACED LIE THEY PERPETRATED ON THIS VERY SIGNIFICANT ISSUE? ARE YOU THAT STUPID? NO, OF COURSE NOT!
Throw the bastards out in November… every damned one of them.
AFTERTHOUGHT: (or perhaps I should simply title it THOUGHT, since the post to this point generates more heat than light): This may well have been the Tea/GOP plan from the outset. Boehner may have assumed that, while Obama “didn’t cave” (yeah, right) in the first budget go-around, he might be more likely to collapse like a house of cards closer to election time. And you know what? Boner may be right: Obama may just do that.
