Here is complete video of President Obama’s Press Conference today after meeting with House Speaker John Boehner and other leaders of Congress on the “Sequester” Cuts that will go into effect later today.

Obama blamed Republicans (surprise), but said not everyone will “feel the pain right away.” This, of course, after having said for weeks the results would be cataclysmic. Obama refused to admit he was the author of the “Sequester” idea, and refused to take any responsibility as the President for not getting something done.

Obama may have revealed his true intention all along with the “Sequester.” He knows the economy is terrible under his policies, and he said in the months ahead, “every time we get a piece of economic news over the next month, two months, next six months, as long as this “Sequester” is in place, we’ll know that that economic news could have been better if Congress had not failed to act.”

So, Obama will now use the “Sequester” not only to blame Republicans in Congress, but as a cover for the disastrous Economy wrought by his own policies.

It is a brilliant strategy politically if your goal is to destroy your opposition. Obama knows he has willing accomplices in the media. This will be the narrative in the days to come.
