The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. — Martin Luther King, Jr.
Well, President Obama’s hair-brained idea is about to come true, sequestration. In spite of what he says, it was his idea as amply explained by Bob Woodward here.
Obama’s sequester deal-changer
Down here in Texas we have a name for people like President Obama who do something and then say they didn’t. That’s right, a dissembler. A Texan considers a dissembler, in the immortal words of Jed Clampett, “lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut”. Why, we wouldn’t trust a dissembler as far as we could throw one.
Anyway, this situation reminds me of the following video clip. In the video clip replace the names “Old Ripper” and “Plan R” with Obama and “The Sequester”. Major Kong and the crew play the part of the Democrats. Replace “Rooskies” with Republicans who are led by none other than Premier Kissov. We can only hope they don’t set off the “Dooms Day Machine”.
