This morning, Kentucky senator Rand Paul slammed the presidents attempts to scare Americans about the impact of sequestration, accusing Obama of making stuff up. When asked about what he would tell Fox News viewers about politicians descriptions of sequestration, Paul said, I would say its balderdash! Its untrue, unfair, dishonest, disingenuous. He criticized the president for telling Americans that sequestration would lay off their local firemen and police, since 98 percent of them are being paid for with local taxes. Earlier this week, the president appeared to speak about the effects of sequestration with first responders standing behind him as background. For the president to use these histrionics is really beneath the office of the presidency, Paul said.
The senator also explained that sequestration is a slowdown in the growth of government and the least we can do [because] our country is drowning in debt. Earlier this week, Paul called sequestrations cuts a pittance.

Rand Paul. Ted Cruz. Where are any other voices of sanity?
This crap from Obama is exactly the reason to let the sequester take place.
When people see that the world doesn’t end, they’ll become amenable to more cuts.
And Obama will lose credibility.
obamma and his commie crew keep lying and the retard legislature keeps believing and giving in. why change
“Rand Paul. Ted Cruz. Where are any other voices of sanity?”
Sorry thats about it for the Senate.
I love Rand Paul.
Who else uses words like “balderdash” these days?
“I love Rand Paul.
Who else uses words like balderdash these days?”
I love Rand Paul also. The only person I have any interest in voting for for President in 2016.
Who paid the salaries and transportation costs of the first responders standing behind obama. Were they actually FIRST RESPONDERS or government workers in uniforms?
its balderdash! Its untrue, unfair, dishonest, disingenuous....In other words, lies, lies and more lies.
Apparently, I do.
I just Googled my screen name +balderdash at the freerepublic.com domain name, and got 5 hits.
Here’s one from last September 1:
“Nonsense! Nonsense and complete balderdash!
The notion of peak lithium will eventually have been shown to be as wrong-headed as every other claim of depleted resources. ....”
It seems I’ve also been known to use “poppycock” on this site.
It's not real. It's the Obama Jivethon's Lying Circus' morbid portrayal of an American administration. The whole schmeer -- Obama, his networks and cable media, the rest of the entertainment industry -- it's all a sick joke.
At a restaurant ,the Clinton news network was on their tv and spokesliar Jay Carney was saying it’s all the republicans fault and they want ( i forget how many jobs would be lost) x amount of people to lose their jobs and the President is doing everything he can but the republicans just want him to fail.
Why is it that the politicians and media gurus who 'get it' are afraid to call Mr Obama what he really is, a bald-faced liar.
HOORAY Rand Paul!!!!
Stand up to this lyin’ POSOTUS.
I would rather hear Rabd Paul and/or Ted Cruz come right out and call Elmer Fudd a liar.
Where is the great Hispanic hope for conservatives? Oh not about immigration,one trick pony,give me Dr. BENJAMIN Carson,or Rand Paul,Rubio,take a hike
