Try to Remember- The Obama-Orbach Corollary: President Obama's self-evident flip-flopping on sequestration makes me want to sing, "Try to remember the kind of November when..." the Beltway media was praising Obama...; Jerry Orbach singing 'Try to Remember' as the original El Gallo in The FantasticksTry to remember... yes, I was alive when President Obama said what he really thought the first time around about sequestration.
He thought it was great and even threatened to veto, which really meant threatening to let loose his zealous followers on anyone who got in its way.
The vast majority of American families have been forced to do their own version of sequestration for many years and the country won't fall apart now.
I support it.
Besides, Obama was the author of this one, and Leon Panetta wrote the Pentagon's chapter, so let them take a bow.
They aren't cuts, they're cuts to rates of growth.
