President Obama is bound and determined to make the sequester, what should have been a painless spending cut, into a serious pain in the rear.

Obama’s Version of Unity: Everyone Get Scared Together

In today’s Wall Street Journal Peggy Noonan likens President Obama’s sequester strategy to Howard Beale from the movie Network. It’s an incredible apt metaphor.
