Joseph Curl | ‘Unoriginal Amateur Hour,’ starring Barack Obama

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.

More.
