Flashback November 2011, courtesy of Weasel Zippers:
“Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No,” Mr. Obama said from the White House briefing room Monday evening. “I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”
“There will be no easy off ramps on this one,” he added.
Yesterday however, Obama claimed that sequestration was never designed to actually happen, and furthermore painted an inaccurate (in the words of the New York Times, "disputed") account of the doom and gloom to be brought down on our heads by those horrible, no good, very bad .... ew-Republicans.
Note: As to the lack of much blogging, I have a yucky head-throat-and-chest cold, so I may just "call it a day" already and go back to bed.
