  •  The Republicans are right about one thing: (4+ / 0-)

    Obama has not shown leadership on this issue. If he did he would say this:

    1) The radical Republicans are not your father's Republicans. They hate government.
    2) They are saboteurs who want to cripple the economic recovery so they can later say my policies kept the recovery from happening.
    3) They could care less about jobs. The sequestration will cost jobs.
    4) Government jobs are JOBS and those jobs create jobs in the private sector as well.
    5) I am going to do what newscasters did during the Iranian embassy hostage crisis: Every day Republicans hold our economy hostage, I am going to say "Day 1, 2, 3" of the  hostage-taking. I will hold a press conference every day until they stop using Congress as a monkey wrench to wreck the recovery.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.
