Congressman Walter Jones is an old-fashioned soft-spoken Southerner – so when I saw he’d put a statement on Twitter, I thought, What the heck? I clicked and landed on a statement (Walter had made) that explained just about everything anyone needs to know about the Sequester in one-page.
Last month up in Washington President Obama made his case against the Sequester by telling everyone who’d listen that the $85 billion in cuts meant teachers would be laid off, children would go without vaccinations and abused women would go without care.
Then, five days after the Sequester, President Obama asked Congress to send $65 billion to the IMF (International Monetary Fund) – which has been busy bailing out troubled European countries like Greece.
The question is obvious: Whatever happened to the needs of those teachers and children and abused women? Are they less important than the IMF? Or was the President, maybe, exaggerating the pain of the Sequester cuts?

The biggest tragedy is that this question is only being asked by right-leaning blogsters and in conservative media sources. As long as the low-information people that vote predominantly democratic and are only interested in their own self-interests are kept from seeing just how ludicrous Obama & Co. is, they couldn't care less about the teachers and children and abused women.
The democratic leadership is doing a marvelous job keeping the mainstream press in their camp and using them to do their bidding.
Something that truly amazes me, though, is that we have some people in the democratic camp that are very intelligent and are truly compassionate and even though they see what's going on, they keep their mouths shut for fear of losing their positions of power and influence.

Democrats will never cut any spending. Tax increases only mean more spending, never cuts.

No mystery, none at all. Obama was merely lying when he said all that stuff about the sequester. That's always what he's doing when his lips are moving.

Yes, Choo and Carbine. You guys believe as I do and know what I'm saying is true on just about every post I make here on the Front Page on TAP. You don't need someone else to tell you how to believe...you believe how you believe and aren't influenced by rhetoric and spin and innuendo.
Obama knows that when he does "move his lips" and lies and presents remarks that people would like to hear depending on where he's presenting these remarks will be accepted and presented by the lamestream press so as to make what he says gospel and correct.
A HUGE number of liberal democrats that defend Obama and side with Obama and want the Obama agenda to go forward are those that GET things from government. I have NEVER heard or read any legitimate argument against that either on the many blogsites I am on or when I call into liberal or conservative radio shows.
Give a kid candy for a while to keep them quiet and then see what happens when you try to take it away from them.
