Obama whines about ‘manufactured crisis,’ threatens criminals will roam free with sequester cuts

President Obama spoke about the upcoming sequester cuts today and lashed out at Congress for having a “manufactured crisis” every three months.

Rich, indeed.

President Revenge also threatened that “federal prosecutors would be forced to close cases and let those criminals go.”

        He’s a “girlyman”…They cannot “man-up”…

      • justlittlolme

        Well, first he would actually have to BE a man, but we know that’s not happinin’. :-) But I just want to SCREAM everytime he gets away with blaming it on someone else and no one calls him on it! ARGH!

      well at least WE didn’t build this either

  • Steve_J

    Want to close cases and let the criminals go? There’s other ways of dealing with them.

      Send them to Yemen in a few cargo planes and then use one Hellfire to take care of them. Isn’t that already established policy?

    Simple. Cut foreign aid, PBS, and subsidies to “green energy” companies, use it to pay Federal Prosecutors and First Responders.

    Problem solved.

      Pretty sure that’s a far ways away from $16T, but good start.

      • kim

        well, if cutting 2 trillion from the next 10 years of proposed increased spending counts as actual cutting of spending, he could cut the proposed expanded preschool program and save 8 billion a year right there. The other 8 billion could come from the proposed expansion of green energy projects of the future. There. All paid for

      But what about Big Bird and the Cookie Monster??

    Venkman: Or you can accept the fact that this city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
    Mayor: What do you mean, “biblical”?
    Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath-of-God type stuff!
    Venkman: Exactly.
    Stanz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!
    Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes!
    Winston Zeddmore: The dead rising from the grave!
    Venkman: Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria!

    Any more whining out of Obama, and they’ll have to change the name of the holiday falling on the third Monday of February to “Presidents’ and Crybaby’s Day.”

    I’m so old I remember at the 3rd debate when Romney said the sequester never should have been signed into law and Obama laughed in his face and assured everyone that the sequester “wasn’t going to happen.”

    Memo to Moronic Low Intelligence Voters:

    If you live in a thing call a “state”. The criminals will not roam free.
    The sequester is Federal. Not state. And its enactment will be but
    a speed bump to the coming economic catastrophe and mandated.
    contractually obligated Zombie Apocalypse.

    Prezzy Odrama, just get all that green energy money back, problem solved. Oh I wonder how far those prisons could go on that.

  • no_more_deceit

    Every time I hear this guy talking, I swear I hear Slim Whitman’s “Indian Love Call”.

  • Junie3

    I despise this man even more as the days go on. Such a liar. Hardly president material.

    • dinkerduo

      Agree–V. Jarrett & G. Soros are pulling the strings—BO is a farce & a foreigner!

  • silenteyedstorm

    The idea of sequestration WAS Obama’s. Unfortunately, with the failure of the Super Committee (a result of Obama’s failed leadership), his bluff is now being called.

    criminals will roam free <<<< they're already roaming free in the WH.

    • walterc

      That was my first thought.

    “criminals will roam free” – Good case for keeping the citizenry armed. Case closed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

      criminals are already roaming free. Holder is not in jail.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Imagine that–the man who’s manufactured every crisis we’ve had since he took office over 4 years ago by being arrogant, lazy and petulant and who has turned everything he possibly can into a crisis when he hasn’t gotten his way is whining and complaining about his own intentionally fabricated crises and for once refuses to use his favorite pronoun–“I”–first person, singular. Hey, pot meet kettle, you’re one and the same.

    • Junie3

      No wonder Moochelle needs a break from him. Imagine living with that man child. He’s such a girl.

      • almarquardt

        Hey, that’s an insult to girls!

  • lainer51

    What? The criminals are already roaming free and are ALL working in the W.H. and Congress… where has HE been?

    • Junie3

      Leading the pack.

    Sometimes I think the republicans should just let Obama do what he wants to do and dig us deeper into the hole with an exponentially growing Debt. Why try to restrain him? The worse things get the better it will be for the republicans in 2016.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    It doesn’t get any more pathetic than this…I can not believe he seriously thinks the people are this stupid..oh right…the left is really that stupid

    • SpinMeNot

      The results of the last election would indicate the people are that stupid …

    whatever happened to Obama’s “you didn’t manufacture that…”?

  • Derek Penner

    Sounds like a veiled threat.
    If you don’t do what I want, we cannot guarantee the safety of the public. It’s his hippie college years coming out.

  • kim

    Where are the elderly dying and children starving in the streets? Riots and mayhem? Oceans rising, earth turning into a blast furnace, swarms of locusts, and people dropping like flies?
    Maybe, if it will be so desperate, he should either..a) not have demanded it, or
    b) not be trying to take away guns and self defense from the law abiding citizens

  • Maxx

    What a sanctimonious blowhard. Mr. President, the only thing that is “roaming free” are your leaf blowers operating inside the National Treasury.

  • crawfordsrevenge

    Manufactured or not, far be it for Obama and the Democrats to let a good crisis go to waste.

  • onegoodnathan

    the prison-industrial complex must be protected and cultivated in our government’s corporatist economic system. like the CIA flooding our streets with cocaine as the state locks up the street sellers and users, it’s big business.

  • Guest

    Criminals already roam free, especially in Illinois…
    Blago, Rezko and Jackson are a tiny proportion of the dross acquainted with Obama

  • ratizbad

    We have criminals and idiots in the WH ,What’s new.
