Here’s Obama last night…
OBAMA: This is not a cliff, but it is a tumble downward. It’s conceivable that in the first week, the first two weeks, first three weeks, first month, a lot of people may not notice the full impact of the sequester. But this is going to be a big hit on the economy.
RUSH: He’s getting cold feet out there. They tried to get the Republicans to cave. They did everything they could to get the Republicans to cave and go along with raising taxes and making some kind of deal. Now the sequester is gonna hit and guess what? The president has to go out there and say (summarized), “You’re not gonna even notice it the first month. It’s gonna happen and it’s gonna really kill economy, but you’re not gonna notice the first week, first two weeks, first three weeks, first month.
“A lot of people may not notice the full impact.” They may not even notice? There was no need to release the illegal alien prisoners? By the way, we find that that decision was made last week, folks, and they found a fall guy for that who is retiring. He’s not resigning. They found a fall guy. So how about this? How about this, “It’s no big deal. Nobody’s gonna even notice it for the first month”? You’re not gonna notice it at all, is the bottom line. The Republicans, for whatever reason, held firm. They didn’t buckle.
They didn’t buckle, and they didn’t cave, and so the regime — and by the way, not just Obama. Democrats all over the place are now in a big CYA mode, uttering things similar to what you just heard Obama say. “You’re not even gonna notice it,” and, of course, the low-information voters aren’t watching. We had the poll yesterday: Only 25% of the American people are paying attention. So it isn’t gonna matter anyway. You and I know, but that’s it’s about it.
