We all moved on from our Prince William days, and frankly, I thought I’d never see such amateur politics again.
But I was wrong. Just this past week, we’ve seen President Obama operating like a third-rate county supervisor, threatening all kinds of horrible outcomes should the fearsome “sequestration” take effect. His has been a display so callow, so clumsy, that it once again makes one wonder just how small this president can make the presidency.
You won’t believe it if I just sum up what he said, so we’ll go straight to the transcript of his early-week news conference — in which he was surrounded by police officers and emergency responders — on the horrors sequestion will visit upon America:
“It will jeopardize our military readiness. It will eviscerate job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research. It won’t consider whether we’re cutting some bloated program that has outlived its usefulness or a vital service that Americans depend on every single day. It doesn’t make those distinctions,” Mr. Obama said.
