They say a picture is worth a thousand words - or perhaps "trillions:"
Just look at the National Debt. Scary times are here, and things are getting even worse.
In "anticipation" of the sequester (which is little more than slowing down spending for less than 30 days - and doesn't consist of any "cuts" at all), we have a reckless president putting the country in danger - only to help achieve his political goals of spend, spend, spend.
"The Department of Homeland Security has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails in anticipation of automatic budget cuts, in a move one Arizona sheriff called politically motivated — and dangerous.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released more than 500 detainees in his county alone over the weekend. A spokesman for Babeu told FoxNews.com that ICE officials have said they plan to release a total of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants.
Babeu described the move as a “mass budget pardon” and suggested the administration was going to unnecessary lengths to demonstrate the impact of the so-called sequester.
“President Obama would never release 500 criminal illegals to the streets of his hometown, yet he has no problem with releasing them in Arizona. The safety of the public is threatened and the rule of law discarded as a political tactic in this sequester battle,” he said. – Fox News
IN "ANTICIPATION" OF BUDGET CUTS???
Give me a break. This is Obama - following the Chicago playbook for creating chaos and panic. Stirring up the masses because most Americans don't appear too concerned about the "sequester" and aren't listening to Obama's doom-and-gloom campaign message about such.
We've heard it all before.
Obama cries wolf - the media plays it up - people panic - and in the end, Obama gets what he wants. This time his M.O. regarding a tiny slow-down in spending doesn't appear to be working, so he had to do something drastic - and dangerous.
People, this is NOT the type of action of a president. What Obama is doing is NOT in the best interest of the United States - it is the polar opposite. Releasing dangerous - and illegal - prisoners into the country to make a point about how "dangerous" the sequestration will be has gone way too far - even for The One. This president is putting people's lives at risk for nothing more than political gain. (And the ironic part of all of this is that in 2011, Obama vowed to enforce "sequestration!" See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kj1y3q92sog)
Already the White House is spinning this reckless and deadly prisoner release with the "we didn't know" reaction they used with Benghazi. "We didn't know it was a terrorist attack" (except we really did - right away - and we lied to the American people for weeks for political gain.) The same is happening right now.
Think the media will give this major story - which could and should lead to impeachment proceedings against Obama - the time of day? Don't hold your breath. I can only imagine the "freakouts" now occuring in newsrooms across the country on how to help the president survive this one....and sadly, Obama probably will.
