A leaked email from an Agriculture Department field officer adds fuel to claims President Obama's political strategy is to make the billions in recent federal budget cuts as painful as possible to win the public opinion battle against Republicans.
The email, circulated around Capitol Hill, was sent Monday by Charles Brown, a director at the agencys Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service office in Raleigh, N.C. He appears to tell his regional team about a response to his recent question on the amount of latitude he has in making cuts.
According to the partially redacted email, the response came from the Agriculture Departments budget office and in part states: However you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.
The response noted that the administration had already told Congress that the APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry without additional funds.

This cannot be the same FOX News that certain Conservatives like to malign because FOX is not goose stepping 100.0000000% with our agenda.
I doubt we will see this smoking gun on the SRN (State Run Media).
When an administration has been uncloaked and shown to be deliberately working against American citizens is it not the appropriate time to extract them from office?
On how many fronts are we to allow them to attack us?
Make SRN (State Run Media)= SRM (State Run Media).
Fingers larger than the gap between the N & M.
Our political system has a new political party. It has morphed into existence from mainly the Democrat Party, but also includes parts of the Republican Party. It specifically represents Government and its many dependents - and promotes Government’s interests, survival and growth, above all else.
I call it “The Government Party.”
Making the sequester HURT ping!
FNC F+F reported this story this morning, didnt see it on Joe and Mika.
Part of the Obama Team's Dumb and Dumber political strategy----to punish eighth graders visiting the WH from Illinois, instead of slapping down federal trough swillers----like employees of the Agriculture Dept who will attend a California conference sipping "exceptional local wines" and sampling "tasty dishes" prepared by "special guest chefs."
The Obama's are not suffering from sequester, either---their teen daughter was spotted at Buddakhan---a pricey NYC restaurtant scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby.
Obama winged around the country like Chicken Little——cackling about “the sky falling” if he did not get another trillion dollars to throw away on 29 new federal federal giveaways. (Obama’s “turkey trot” is to buy votes—to increase power-mad Dem’s midterm chances).
CREDIBILITY? WHAT CREDIBILITY? Obama has been forced to face his abysmal failure to break the backs of the working class with more new taxes to pay for his 29 cockamamie federal giveaways.
Even after lying, and coercing and haranguing his entire administration into going along w/ the scam to frighten Americans, the soft-ball sequestration cuts have become a reality he has to acknowledge.
SOME GOOD NEWS—the sequester grounded VP Bidens pricey govt plane. (gloat) “AF Two is grounded for weekend trips starting Friday,” one source said, the pricey military plane Biden uses to travel home, often to play golf at Fieldstone Golf Club, a private club. Biden also occasionally flies Air Force Two to Delaware during the week.
(NOTE: The veep’s govt plane has also been spotted frequently in the Caribbean where his (cough) brother has a posh beachfront home).
