Lame Impasse Looms on Budget Cuts

Well, it's Sequester Saturday. A boring Sequester Saturday at that. This is Obama manufactured crisis. The so-called "cuts" are minuscule to non-existent and if Republicans have a spine they'll continue to hold firm. We'll see.

The Wall Street Journal has a front-page report, "Budget Standoff Presents Political Risks on Both Sides."

Manufactured Sequester

More at the Daley Gator, "Bob Woodward: Obama lied about the sequester," and go straight to Woodward, "Obama’s sequester deal-changer." (At Memeorandum.)
