Rep. Maxine Waters gave this dire prediction about sequestration at a Thursday press conference: The United States would experience a loss of 170 million jobs, if Congress and the White House fail to strike an agreement.
Only thing is: The Bureau of Labor Statistics says there are only about 140 million jobs in the United States, as Breitbart reports.
Either she's lying or she's stupid. Take your pick. Okay, I'll give you a third option: All of the above.
Actually I blame Obama for this level of WTF stupidity.
When you have the leader of your own party making constant, outrageous threats and lying through his teeth every day with the most hilariously over-the-top predictions of cannibalism and meteor strikes because of sequestration, the people who get most worked up by the frantic atmosphere are the idiots who follow him with absolute devotion.
Once lying and threats become the standard of communication from your Dear Leader, who among the devoted Politburo will deny themselves the opportunity to get some of that attention?
Not Maxie, that's for sure.
