Because what they really want to do is give rich people all the money and let the rich "trickle down" to everyone else, they don't have anything else to resort to but appeal to the racist sentiments in some people. That's why.

    The evidence is O'Reilly's statement. The deal is this, you people had a guru by the name of Lee Atwater. The great one, Atwater, taught you people how to talk in racist code language without really coming out and saying it. When Bill O'Reilly says that white people are no longer the majority and that the non-whites want stuff, what he's doing is speaking in code. What he really means is that we don't have enough white people to deceive that black people want to take white people's money anymore.

    Hell everyone wants stuff. White Republicans like John McCain want stuff. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia wants stuff. Abdullah wants the US to attack Syria. And because Abdullah has a lot of money, and people like John McCain want the US government to do all it can to give rich people more money, John McCain starts publicly advocating for the US to attack Syria. Then when Obama won't do it, McCain says it's because Obama is weak. Hell, I'm sick of the US fighting wars on behalf of people like Abdullah. Yeah, I want stuff. I want that money that the government uses to bomb people on behalf of Abdullah to go to educating people. But if I say that, you people go, "oh, you are just a black guy that want's stuff."

    Then you ask why Republicans are so stupid. They are just like that. Dumb as Dora.

    So, there you go.
    It was very stupid for them to paint themselves into a corner like they have. Instead of broadening their appeal, their base has moved radically to the right, further tightening the noose they placed on their head.

    But who liked it so much that they refused to negotiate a deal to end it?

    Indeed. What is amazing is that when you point it out, some try to pretend as if it doesn't exist.

It was Republicans idea to actually implement the sequester and Obama has already signed a new budget that DOES reduce many parts of it.
    Five years in the past ?

    I guess that "new math" they taught you in school didn't work out to well. 2011 wasn't five years ago. Just more liberal revisionism I suppose.

    >" Despite this conclusive evidence that Obama himself proposed the sequester, the media sat on its hands as the President falsely excoriated the Republicans for originating and insisting on the sequester. They stood by as the President ludicrously accused the Republicans of deliberately inflicting harm on sick children so that their filthy rich supporters could have their corporate jets. The press spread the myth that the President was above the fray and was working hard to save ordinary Americans from his vicious foes..."<

    >" The president and Lew had this wrong. My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.

    Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved..."<

    Breitbart? Really? You attempt a serious argument based on an article from a softcore political porn site? I should demand a real news source before replying, but I will allow it.

    Now, consider the context... this was a campaign speech... it was most likely crafted and written by McCain's staff (which included policy wonks that actually were knowledgeable about world affairs). Sarah's contribution was that she read the telepromter. If this had been a real Palin policy position (if she actually knew what she was talking about), it would be no problem finding other derivations of this theme post election.... but, she doesn't, so you can't...


    PS- if you want an example of obvious bias, note the link in the upper right corner entitled "Sarah Palin tops poll of female candidates that america wants to run for president"... after you are done scratching your head saying "that can't be true" and you click the link you later learn of the provision "not named hillary"

    Sarah Palin Tops Poll of Women Americans Want to Run for President

    See How Obama Answers ABC Reporter
    The Blaze? Really? Now you have crossed the line into hardcore political porn and your credible argument is all but gone.... so, if you see fit to lower the intellectual bar with this smut, I'll show you mine.....

    Now, I am all about forgiving the misspeaks and gaffes, everyone has a few, but Sarah's are beyond gaffe.... enjoy, some of these are pretty funny (if you can get over scary idea that some of the American electorate voted to put someone this ignorant a heartbeat away from the button..... this is my problem with Palin; its scary to me that people actually think she is a "leader")....

    Sarah Palin's fault is not that she is misunderstood or that she was railroaded by a liberal press.... if so, her idiotisms would not be so abundant.... no, Sarah Palin's problem is that she is an idiot*.

    * - not because she is stupid, but because is uneducated and intellectually lazy...

    How is that remotely relevant?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    He apparently wanted to know which Condoleeza Rice and I gave pertinent data to certify that.

However, the Republicans were the ones who actually took it and started seriously advocating it as a way to cut spending. So Obama was right, it was actually the Republicans idea, because they are the ones who really wanted to do it.
    Si it was Obama's idea but a bluff? Could a bluff also be called a lie?

    But it is interesting how you managed to make Obama's idea, which you admit is true, a Republicans idea. Of course it's convoluted and silly but is interesting to read.
