Barack Obama has been described as dithering and vindictive by insiders and it takes no effort to believe that he is one mean, petty and vindictive SOB. It was reported that Obama wanted the sequester to be as painful as possible, rather than lessening the pain on the American people.
A leaked email from an Agriculture Department field officer adds fuel to claims President Obama’s political strategy is to make the billions in recent federal budget cuts as painful as possible to win the public opinion battle against Republicans.
The email, circulated around Capitol Hill, was sent Monday by Charles Brown, a director at the agency’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service office in Raleigh, N.C. He appears to tell his regional team about a response to his recent question on the amount of latitude he has in making cuts.
According to the partially redactedhttp://global.fncstatic.com/static/v/all/img/external-link.png email, the response came from the Agriculture Department’s budget office and in part states: “However you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
So the shenanigans he and the democrats are pulling are no surprise and could work out wonderfully for Republicans. President Pettiness has ordered all US Parks closed- and barricaded. The WWII memorial and the Lincoln Memorial are open air parks near to major roadways. What’s the point of the barricades? And what does it cost to to barricade these memorials? Where’s that money coming from?
Obama even threatened them with arrest if they tried to visit the memorials:
He says they are considering going ahead with the trip even if the government is still on shutdown, but when he called the parks service, he was told they would face arrest. “I said, are you kidding me? You’re going to arrest a 90/91-year-old veteran from seeing his memorial? If it wasn’t for them it wouldn’t be there. She said, ‘That’s correct sir.'”
And their response to that threat?
“It just goes to show you why we won World War II,” says Honor Flight of Northwest Ohio President Lee Armstrong.
On top of that, House democrats killed an effort to fund Veterans’ Affairs and parks. That’s a gift from the left.
I can’t wait to see Barack Obama arrest a vet in a wheelchair. He should do it himself. Barack Obama is a pissy, mean and vindictive narcissist. Let him cement his legacy by arresting these men.
So go ahead, Barack…
