Here’s more from President Obama’s press conference today. He spent a lot of time blaming Republicans and making claims like he cut more than $2 trillion from the deficit, before saying the sequester cuts concocted in his office are “dumb.” He also denied being a dictator.
President Obama placed blame squarely on Republican lawmakers at a Friday press conference for failing to stop automatic spending cuts that were to begin kicking in later in the day, calling the cuts “dumb, arbitrary.”
See the video below for him saying he’s not a dictator, with a slight grin on his face. I think it’s more like he’s a dumb dictator.
