Michelle Malkin on Obama's Sequestration Plea: 'This Press Conference Was a National Embarrassment'

Tuesday morning, President Obama pitched a plea to Congress to avoid sequestration on March 1st. The president said the series of automatic spending cuts “won’t grow the economy, won’t create jobs, and will put hardship on a whole lot of people.”

Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin reacted to President Obama calling

on Congress to come together against this “meat-cleaver” approach. She said on Your World, “This is the court jester of sequester. I think that this press conference was a national embarrassment.”

Neil Cavuto wondered, “[President Obama] signed onto these cuts knowing they were sort of the backup plan, as did Republicans I might point out. So this feigned shock and awe about what we’re facing really raises the question, ‘Well, why did you come up with them in the first place?’”
