I Love Republicans! Amazing the contortions they enjoy twisting themselves into. A lot of bang for the entertainment buck!
Now they are accusing President Obama of playing politics – politics, I tell you! – over the sequester, trotting out all these scary stories. He’s supposed to be presidential, above it all, presiding calmly, god-like.
While they are in calculating political mode all the time – attacking full-strength, as they have since he first appeared on the scene, and more viciously and vociferously since he became president. Now they are simply over the top.
The President is very good at calm and cool, of course, and I love watching that side of him. But he sees the country he loves in jeopardy because of antics over a manufactured crisis. And, as any sane leader would, he is taking steps to avert it. Including talking about what will happen if the sequester hits.
Like tying up airports all over thee country, with the automatic furloughs of folk in the towers watching the radar, and the TSA folk, who will not be screening us as often, with resulting long lines in security.
The most fun of the whole thing is watching Republicans get red in the face and shout and accuse. Boehner, of course, gets orang-er, and Mitch McConnell’s turkey wattles wobble. Just sit back and enjoy. It’ll all be over soon.
