Same old ACCESS politics….
You got the cash, you receive the access.
Who is Obama trying to fool?
A new video from American Crossroads, the nonprofit organization founded by Karl Rove, accuses the a rival group born from President Obama’s reelection campaign of “selling access to the president” in a new video fashioned like a late-night infomercial.
The ad plays off a comment by White House press secretary Jay Carney, who called Organizing for Action — the nonprofit group headed by former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina — “perfectly appropriate” in a briefing with reporters earlier this month.
“Any notion that there’s a price for meeting with the president is simply wrong,” Carney said, adding that “the bottom line here is that this is a separate organization, as we’ve noted, the existence of which is perfectly appropriate. And the White House will engage with it consistent with the way we engage with a whole host of other outside constituencies.”
Sequestration from Wall Street Journal
Well, you get the point.
Misunderstanding, misstatements and all the classic contortions of partisan message management surround the sequester, the term for the $85?billion in ugly and largely irrational federal spending cuts set by law to begin Friday.
What is the non-budget wonk to make of this? Who is responsible? What really happened?
What happened is that President Obama broke his deal with Congressional Republicans and now is playing the sequester blame game.
Trust in politics, is sometimes all that you have.
Now, America will have the sequester because the TRUST is gone.
Read all of Bob Woodward’s account of events and you will see why.

The President has a week to prevent sequestration, but I doubt he will do ANYTHING to reduce government spending.
It is not in his political makeup.
So, what happened to President Obama and the sequester cuts which are destined to take affect on March 1?
Obama signed the measure into law which enables the sequester.
So, the President was against the automatic spending cuts, but signed the law anyway?
And, now he is demagoguing the Republicans to make a last minute deal to avert another fiscal calamity.
The American people are tired of the Kabuki theater which is the Obama “Perpetual Campaign” Administration. There is no need for another deal to increase taxes to support an increase in federal spending.
The Republicans should do nothing and let the sequester happen – the GOP will be blamed by Obama and the media anyway.

Chris, the entire gun control nonsense of the Far LEFT and the Obama Administration is going nowhere.
Blue state Senators will bellow and complain, but I doubt Harry Reid will even call up their legislation. Reid is smart enough to know that his Democratic Senators who are in red leaning states and up for re-election in 2014 will NOT want to vote for ANY gun control laws.
Obama tonight will move on to other items in his agenda – like taxes and ending the War in Afghanistan.
