  • Are you kidding me?

    "Congress set up the cuts to be so odious that they would find better ways to compromise on cuts to the federal budget." Are you kidding me?? PRESIDENT OBAMA set up the sequestration so he could once again play his bully, Chicago-style politics - Not Congress. This man's idea of compromise is "my way, or the highway". He needs to stop compaigning with his scare tactics and learn a thing or two about budgeting.

    impossible. doj has been missing in action for the past four years. maybe by "profound effect", holder means he would leave. now, that would be profound.
