Dem Sen. Max Baucus speaks out of turn, admits sequester was White House’s idea

President Obama has emphatically and repeatedly denied any responsibility for the looming sequestration cuts, but Montana Sen. Max Baucus is breaking with fellow Democrats and not letting Obama off the hook:


  • Canadian in USA

    Is he up for re-election?

    • walterc

      Yep, 2014. Watch for a sharp shift to the middle. Guns are ok, sequestration is Obama’s idea, cut spending etc etc. Then after re-election, back to the left for six more.

      This guy has been in Congress since before I moved from my home state 23 years ago. Hey Montana, it’s time to kick Baucus to the curb. His sell-by date is long, long gone.

  • J. Cox

    Yikes…1st Roseanne is supporting woman with guns,now a Dem is admitting the truth…someone check the thermostat in Hell,methinks the devil is getting chilly.

    • Spatial Awareness

      WTH??? Damn ice cubes EVERYWHERE!!!! >:^(

      • rippersnort

        I am still trying to pick myself off the floor over this one. Great read….

    • TugboatPhil

      I fear that there will soon be a tear in the space/time continuum!!

    • Ben Bollman

      Also, Axelrod doesn’t want campaign finance limits

      • Penmar

        That kind of talk from Axelrod scares me, what is he up to now/?

        • camnpat

          He knows where the money for his campaigns comes from.

        • Ben Bollman

          He doesn’t have a meany pants likable rich guy to run against so now the sky is the limit on campaign contributions

  • Aaron

    I say we let Sequestration happen.

    It’s going to take something this grand for the people across the country to realize how inept this group of people that they KEEP re-electing truly are.

    Maybe this will open their eyes and we’ll get a fresh group of “leaders” with ideas on how to actually solve our problems, not just get re-elected.

  • CatHerder

    Sounds like somebody just realized that all those end runs the Prez is planning to do around Congress don’t just apply to Republicans. Fancy, a politician trying to maintain a semblance of respectability.

  • $35072932

    Yeah, watch the Bull Stream Media try to parse that by saying it was the building’s idea, not the Dear Liars.

    Of course, does just another whopper from the Liar extraordinaire surprise anyone?

    I’m going laugh my posterior off the day Democrats come out and say – yes, we know we’ve been Lying all along, but THIS TIME we’re telling the truth, trust us… please..

  • Booker

    Time to be Cory Bookered!!

  • Ariadnea

    The future of the US hangs in a precarious balance, when it’s President is nothing but a habitual liar. Amazing how Americans put up with such deceptive leadership.

    Said the idiot behind Obamacare.

  • KansasGirl

    Big deal…doesn’t his term end in 2014?
    This is a man that was drunk on the Senate floor 12-23-09 arguing for the “affordable” healthcare law.
    Didn’t embarrass him in the least.
    This man sold his soul to the highest bidder long ago.

  • Garth Haycock

    hmmm… no soup for Baucus!

    Comrade Baucus will be getting a sharp reprimand from the Democrats’ leader,
    Herr Axelthug
