Looks like we may have dodged yet another apocalypse:
He’s been on the road for what? Two weeks or more talking about the “the parade of horribles” that will befall the nation if Congress doesn’t pass the Democrats’ deficit-raising sequester plan. Now, on the eve of the sequester, we’re hearing a leetle bit of a walk back:
“It’s conceivable that in the first week, first two weeks, first three weeks, first month – that unless your business is directly related to the Defense Dept, unless you live in a town that is directly impacted by a military installation, unless you’re a family that now is trying to figure out where to keep your kids during the day because you just lost a Head Start slot, a lot of people may not notice the full impact of the sequester.”
In the words of Emily Litella, “Nevermind“.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration is blaming the sequester negotiations for their failure to submit a budget on the first Monday in February. No explanation for why they were late those three other years too. Not only that but Obama is setting aside seven whole minutes tomorrow to meet with congressional Republicans.
So there’s that to look forward to.
