I watched the show this morning. Woodward also confirmed that it was Bronco Bama who dreamed up the sequester idea.
At the same time, John McCain was on Press the Meat assuring David Gregory that Hagel would be confirmed as soon as they all got back from recess.
You have to wonder...what was going through the mind of the President and staff when the sequestration idea was first tossed around as an option. They had to have some motive and indication of where things were going to go if this was implemented, and it had to agree with their agenda. I suspect that they realize the economic swing of the nation has now put them into a very difficult situation...with unemployment climbing again, and things looking dismal for November 2014.
Whenever I hear McCain’s name, I think of this from 2008: “John McCain telling voters they have nothing to fear with Barack Obama in the White House.”
With the rest of us yelling at the top of our lungs that there was plenty to fear, McCain is either a liar or a complete idiot.
“At the same time, John McCain was on Press the Meat assuring David Gregory that Hagel would be confirmed as soon as they all got back from recess”
And you can bet your bottom dollar that democrat-wannabe
Juan McShame will vote for Pvt Goober’s confirmation.
