A Change in Tune


Friday March 1st, 2013   •   Posted by Craig Eyermann at 4:12am PDT   •  

Watch the following YouTube video and see if you can notice a change in President Obama’s tune with respect to the long-dreaded budget cutting “sequester”, which is supposed to go into effect today:

We wonder what changed the President’s mind on supporting his own proposal to impose the automatic budget cuts that are taking effect today. The one that his new Treasury secretary brought to the table when he was the President’s budget director during the debt ceiling “crisis” back in 2011.

Maybe, like most Washington D.C. politicians, he believed the federal spending spree would never really end, and the real reason he has been working so hard to upset people about it in recent days is because it has to end.

That the sequester’s actual cuts to the U.S. government’s spending aren’t very serious might then explain why the President would appear to be changing his tune. Again.

Maybe someday the politicians in Washington D.C. will get their story straight.
