You've got to be kidding me. After planning and pushing for the sequester, and talking about how bad the "sequester" is in a speech this weekend, comes the news from the President's White House press secretary that he will sign the FAA de-sequester bill passed by Congress.

The House overwhelmingly passed a measure to end furloughs at the Federal Aviation Administration, sending it to President Obama for his signature. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the president would sign the bill, which the Senate approved late Thursday by unanimous consent.
So it looks like there isn't even going to be a veto, and that he'll let these inconvenienced lawmakers get away with repealing a part of the sequester bill they don't like while other programs like Head Start, Meals on Wheels, and more that the public relies upon remain on the chopping block. And President Obama still wants to replace the sequester instead of fully repealing it by having a "Grand Bargain" that forces seniors to rely even more on Meals on Wheels when three months of their Social Security benefits are cut through the Chained CPI benefit cut.

Heckuva job, Mr. President. Heckuva job, Democrats. Way to make us proud. Not.
