Rush Limbaugh: Obama the Sequester 'Architect'

By Wanda Carruthers

Rush Limbaugh called President Barack Obama the "architect" of military cuts, and found it ironic that the president promised a group of servicemen and their families that he vowed to fight cuts caused by the sequester.

"Here we have the architect of military cuts. Here we have the man who has been responsible for them, going to an audience of Marines and others at Camp Pendleton and promising that he would fight to end them," Limbaugh said Thursday on his radio show.

According to The New York Times, Obama addressed 3,000 Marines, sailors, and their families on Wednesday at Camp Pendleton in California.

"We can do better than that. That’s not how a great nation should be treating its military and military families," the paper quoted Obama as saying.

"Not only was the sequester Obama's idea, he insisted on it. You know why he insisted on the sequester? Because it had automatic military spending cuts. Obama knew that the sequester would cut military spending the most, and it did," Limbaugh said.

Claiming that the blame rested with Obama, Limbaugh said, "He tried to pass the sequester off as a Republican idea. It was his . . . This is the guy that has done the cutting."
