    My question is what does the email say in context. We all know where this ends 99 percent of the time.

    OMG he is so doomed now. Every time they took stuff out of context or credited someone else's words to him in the past it has totally blown up in their faces, but this time it is for reals. Obama is doomed and now Mitt Romny will be president. This is down right cartoonish. The plot of the week to destroy Obama has become comical and now is extremely old in season 2. Can't we get a better villain in this show?

    Really, after all the failed attempts at this you expect anyone but a fanboy of the right to even get excited at this tactic? It is not even his quote. The best you can hope for is the guy who made it to get tossed under the bus for speaking way out of line. Don't you guys get to a point where you people fail so many times in the same exact way and you just get tired of it? I have seen dogs catch onto the fake ball throw faster than republicans. But no i am sure they really have obama this time, he is sure to be destroyed.

    perhaps obama is cocky because he is up against the same idiots who have failed time and time again, and the same old plan?

    Both Boehner and Obama stated on the record that the sequester would never happen.

    Both are liars, and share the blame.

    Re: Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised

    So, does anyone have a copy of this e-mail, full text? It looks like at least some individuals thing it says something different than what the article suggests...I'd like to see the e-mail, and other related e-mails sent to the same individual, before drawing a conclusion.

    Are you freaking kidding me? So the simple premise would be "We told them it was going to be bad so make sure it IS bad."?

    And they go on to say, essentially, "We are trying to make it as painless as possible but we probably won't be able to inspect meat so that will be in short supply."

    Man, those of you who still believe that a gigantic government is your friend had better be paying attention because this is the antithesis of governance and is running headlong into "ruling".
    You expect something different? Listen, the bailouts have proven once and for all who the government serves, and it's not us. So they can make it as painful as possible, their buddies can weather the storm, and they're isolated from outrage by the People so they can really do whatever they want. This is just about power and which side can seize more, nothing new here. This is the trend of the Republocrats, this is the status quo.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Its just the feds saying, "Look. We are running the Washington Monument Gambit here, don't F it up." Nothing to see here that isn't new.

    What this is about is obama saying give me money or I will ruin your day, your week, your month, your year. The sequester is not a reduction in gov spending, it is a tiny amount sliced off of growth in spending and obama is still getting alot more than he got last year. The email proves that obama is not willing or able to govern, he is acting like a spoiled child that didn't get his way. The really insane part of this is while obama is making cuts that will hurt the American people the most he is posting job listings for 600 new employees per day. Obama wants government to grow and any attempt to even slow that growth will be dealt with harshly, it's the Chicago mafia way. It is like telling the owner of a store to pay up or your store may just burn down some night.

    It seems to say exactly what the article says it does.

    OK, so the opinion of the guy who wrote the email was taken completely out of context of a meeting he quoted only a small part of. I cannot imagine the meeting he quoted only consisted of a sentence or two. Like always the whole quote is not there. realize i did not say the whole email is not there, but the email pulls this quote from a meeting, a meeting that a quote was pulled out of context. So the email says what the article says it does, but the email pulls things out of context. It doesn't actually shield the fail factory from another out of context load of BS to add another layer to it.

    Somehow i knew that this was yet another out of context quotation the republicans have latched onto in an attempt to destroy obama, who is also not even referenced in the quote at all. Seriously, they are pulling this again and you are falling for it? Now they have to actually pull the minutes of the meeting that were recorded so we can see the quote in full context because we all know this BS has happened before. If there is no actual meeting text the email has been taken from then the entire quote by the sender is paraphrasing and interpretation from memory at best.

    I will give you that it looks like this email said what the article implies, but we cannot even confirm that he isn't making up his own agenda. You want to use this as some great evidence against obama? this gets shakier and shakier. this is why people have stopped listening to the right wing BS factory. It just turns out the same way every time with them cackling that they have nailed Obama with these things, and yet they interpret things to fit their case, pull things out of context, associate things with obama that were said by other people, and blame obama for some manufactured story and claim victory over his evil empire. It is old. it is tired. it has not worked in the past at all. The only thing this does is make them look desperate to find anything when we all know there has to be something because obama is one of the biggest group of liars on the planet known as the US government.

    Don't you get tired of it? Doesn't it become an up and down ride of fake victory and inevitable failure for you? How is it that all this time later you have held onto hope that this time it is going to work? But good luck with the whole destroying Obama with an email with an out of context quote that doesn't even reference obama at all. I am sure you are excited about it working this time. Perhaps some of your anger at the Obama admin should be heaped on the shoulders of the people who keep building your hopes up on destroying the man and then dashing them on the rocks over and over and over again. How many times have they attempted to impeach him with their claims? You certainly cannot blame obama for them having this supposed damning evidence and not using it time and time again?

    Actually, it is nothing about any of that. This is about some guy pulling a quote OOC from a meeting and then emailing it out to a bunch of people. It is not a quote from Obama, nor does it even say Obama says to do this. So really this has nothing to dow ith obama and is another OOC right wing BS fest that simply adds another layer to the heap by having an email take things out of context instead of their creative editors. But don't let that stop your victory dance, i am sure they have truly exposed obama for what he is this time. i am sure the world will look at that and realize the republicans are totally right and this is all obama's fault. I am sure no one will sigh and roll their eyes thinking that the republican hate machine has done this stupid thing again. You should all get together and dress up as obama and do the harlem shake. That will ensure your victory over him this time.
