Co-host of FOX & Friends Gretchen Carlson weighed in on the looming sequester and President Obama’s high level of predictability. “It looks like the sequestration’s going to go through and then we’ll really be looking at whether or not these cuts were overblown,” Carlson said.
Former Deputy Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush, Karl Rove, weighed in on what exactly the President is doing to the security of our country. “He is taking the security of our country and saying, ‘I can’t protect our country because I am unwilling to reduce fat and waste in the budget,’” Rove said. He went onto say that he thinks Obama has definitely over-played his hand this time around.
Melissa Francis, host of MONEY with Melissa Francis on the FOX Business Network and author of Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter, talked about the scare tactics President Obama is using to get people worried about the looming sequester. Francis put the 2.4% reduction into a realistic scenario: “If you’re looking around your house, and you can’t figure out how to cut 3% without having, you know, your kids go without vaccines, without having your grandma go without food… If this were your house and you had to cut 3%, you would say ok let’s not go out to dinner on Saturday.”
“The bears are screwed!” Co-hosts of America’s Newsroom, Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum, talked to Brian about the possible effects of Obama’s budget cuts. One such cut Obama has threatened the country with surrounds clearing the snow at Yellow Stone National Park. “The bears are screwed,” Brian replied, “I mean they are going to be stuck in the woods until April!”
