President Obama is once again blaming Republicans, even though they were clearly his idea, for the budget cuts amounting to some $85 billion this year as he said sequester "is happening because of a choice that Republicans made" at a press conference earlier today. He also added that Republicans are unwilling to prevent the sequester and that the party is "out of step" with the rest of the country.Â That apparently is the fantasy country in Obama's mind where everyone agrees with him.
But later in that same new conference President Obama was asked by CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin why he can't simply refuse to let congressional leaders leave a room until they reach a deficit-reduction agreement. First, we'd like to know why a member of the State Run Media is even asking questions like that and secondly we wonder if it was just a set up so the President can give reassurance to the nation he really is a likeable guy and wants to do business in a fair and balanced way. Yea right!
Here is what the President said when answering Ms Yellin's question,
"I am not a dictator; I'm the president. So, ultimately if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say we need to go to catch a plane, I can't have Secret Service block the doorway, right?" I wonder if he secretly wishes that though?
Watch the video below so you too can be assured Barack Obama is no dictator:
