    Barry is playing politics with the sequester cuts by warning disabled veterans their benefits might be cut. I don't recall him telling welfare recipients to get jobs because their benefits might be cut.

    He's a natural born leader, isn't he?

    he has a point that i have never heard him say welfare benes are at risk, that would be an interesting sound bite and reaction i am guessing. but i guess no reason to threaten those that have no skin in the game, other than a vote

    He's made being disingenuous an art form, so you're probably right.

    Your messiah is shown to be nothing more than a two bit community organizer who resorts to Chicago-style politics and intimidation. jdr, I know it's upsetting to you, but try to control your emotions -- take deep breaths.

    If you libs don't know by now that he wants to cause as much pain as possible. Then he and his puppets in the media will blame the right. As he jets off to Martha's Vineyard.

    Divisive cat isn't he. It is what he knows. Reagan was the Great Communicator, Obama is the Great Extortionist. It is what he was trained to do.

    BTW- Whose idea was it for Sequester anyway?

    old, there are people that can be hit over the head with a sledgehammer that won't be convinced it was a sledgehammer. Alcoholics never think "they" have a problem with alcohol. They think others "have the problem."

    Those inclined to support Obama's methodology don't see it as divisive. Those of us who do, feels he's a POS.

    Can any of us "prove" he's divisive? NO. Can you "prove" he's not? NO

    It seems to me that he promised the vets they'll be taken care of. How exactly is that a threat?

    See the definition of threaten. It's above, so it won't be that difficult. Instead of accusing people of things that clearly aren't so, do a little work -- although as a liberal, work might be distasteful to you.

    Was it during this admin. that Congress was tasked to come up with the budget? Has prezbo ever gotten the vote from his own party for his budget? Failed leadership epitomized.
