Flashback: During Oct. 22 debate, Obama said sequester 'will not happen'

Here’s the full quote:

Bob, I just need to comment on this. First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It’s something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen. The budget that we’re talking about is not reducing our military spending. It’s maintaining it.

Maybe he was just being rhetorical.

    Not the first, nor the last thing BHO is, was, and will be wrong about.

    How nice to be such an important public figure and not to have to worry about being asked about previously inconsistent statements.

    Yeah but, see, that was during the campaign for his SECOND term, and his second term hasn’t started yet — so, really, he can’t be accused of reneging on a campaign promise because, um . . . well, if you’re so smart then what’s YOUR definition of the word “is”, tough guy!
