RUSH: Now we take the Byron York story in the Washington Examiner: “The GOP’s Astonishingly Bad Message on Sequester Cuts – In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner describes the upcoming sequester as a policy ‘that threatens US national security, thousands of jobs and more.’”
Boehner, echoing Obama, in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. And Byron York said, wait a minute, it leads to a question here. Why would Republicans support -**- I mean, the Republicans support the sequester. They’re on record as supporting it. ** Even though it’s Obama’s idea, they support it. It’s the only way we’re gonna get some budget cuts, and they’re infinitesimal anyway. But the question is, why would Republicans support something that does what Boehner says it’s gonna do? Threatens US national security, thousands of jobs could be lost. Boehner’s calling the cuts deep, when they’re not.
I had Rush on the radio today and he thinks the GOP is trying to get Obama to stop sequester in a round about way my opinion is this is Boehner’s way of shifting blame from himself because in reality the GOP wants the same as Obama. Boehner will find a way to have to do Obama’s bidding.
