Hardship: White House Easter Egg Hunt Could Be Imperiled by Obama Sequester

Do these schmucks realize yet how badly this temper tantrum has blown up in Obama’s face? Do they really want to go to such lengths as to cancel a ceremonial Easter Egg hunt?

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that he believed the annual Easter Egg Roll event on the White House lawn would continue, despite sequestration cuts to the administration’s budget and rumors the event would be canceled.

“I would refer both to the East Wing and the Secret Service, but it’s my understanding that as of now, the decision has been made that the Easter Egg Roll will go forward,” Carney said.

While the Obamas firm up plans for yet another lavish Martha’s Vineyard getaway this summer, kids are left as pawns in this childish political theater.

Asked why the Easter Egg Roll would continue when tours had been canceled, Carney characterized the decision as similar to “choices you make all the time” about budget issues.”This is about trade-offs. Because when you have the kind of severe cuts that the sequester represents, you have to reduce your budget accordingly. And then you have to make choices about what you do and what you don’t,” Carney said.

There are no cuts of any kind, let alone “severe” cuts. The Obama Sequester represents a slight reduction in annual growth. Not a single penny is cut from this year’s budget, but that fact doesn’t stop these tools from constantly lying. Even the New York Times is now asking those difficult questions about their Dear Leader.
So the president’s White House advisers are going to have to confront the question of how, or whether, to adjust his family’s activities. Should they go to Martha’s Vineyard? Will Michelle Obama and the couple’s daughters avoid trips like the ski vacation they took to Aspen last month? And what about the golf that Mr. Obama frequently plays at the nearby Joint Base Andrews?
How many more children must suffer just so Obama can play golf?

    As many as it takes.

    You can’t speak with authority regarding an Easter egg hunt? Geez you are the most pathetic shill ever spawned.

    You sicken me.

    What is the funniest thing of all is how they somehow think this will affect the GOP and not themselves. The don’t even have the propaganda ministry doing their bidding completely, not a good thing for an admin too lazy to do anything themselves.

    We should keep running the National lampoon cover depicting a dog with a gun to its head. it was captioned, “read this issue or the dog dies”. This is how bad this is getting.

    This makes sense.

    My wife just took $100/month from my monthly paycheck for “retirement savings”, redirected into a savings account before I can spend it… so I shut off the electricity to the house.

    She is all whining and complaining I could take that $100 in cuts from the $200/week I spend at the strip club… lunacy.

    If I’d cut my Strip Club funding to $175/week she wouldn’t have even noticed… how would I stop her from taking another $50 or $100 more later if that happened?

    She has to see and suffer from the cuts so she’ll stop trying to make cuts and won’t try again in the future.

    It’s the only rational choice here. And that’s why the Easter Egg Hunt will be cancelled too… unless you cave before then.

    ** All of the above story is hypothetical and conjecture; any apparent matching to a real person’s budget is coincidence **

    According to recent emails, he plans to close the national parks als Clinton. But I think he misplays here. He is merely showing himself incompetent and shallow. The dolt he is.

    Il Doofus lives in His own fantasy world in which He is beloved by the “right-thinking people”, and worshiped by all but the Ungodly, and therefore everything He does is automatically Right and Good because He wants to do it.

    The problem with that is the same problem fools always have in positions of power. That being that when they follow their basic instincts, they look even more like fools.

    “Over-reach” is a fool’s way of proving to himself that he can outsmart anybody, and force them to submit to his will. It never works, but if he could figure that out, he wouldn’t be a fool, would he?

    Never mind He Who Must Not Be Named (and I’m not talking about Voldemort). The Self-Exalted One is going from a bad Mussolini impression to a worse King of Id imitation.

    With no Wizard, or Duke, or Sir Rodney to tell him that he’s about to trip over his royal train.

    I thought it was all “for the children”. Vaccination’s reduced, threatening to cancel kids Easter Egg Hunts; this Obama is a vile, spiteful, hateful little man. Infantile is his resentments and retaliatory in his actions. Obama likes to hurt people that disagree with him.
