Boston Marathon Bombing Blamed On Sequester By House Minority Whip


House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) decided to politicize the bombings that took place at the Boston Marathon on Monday, saying that they were "proof" that some of the sequester cuts were "irrational."

We should have known that this would be forthcoming from a Democrat's lips and so we are not shocked, but we are most assuredly sickened by Hoyer's comments.

Hoyer claimed that the bombings demonstrate "why having the ability to dress security concerns is important" and then tied that with cutting off sequestration.

He went on to elaborate when asked by a reporter whether or not the attacks on Monday actually makes an argument that should be directed towards sequestration. He said, "I think there are multiple reasons for ensuring that we invest in our security -- both domestic and international security. That we invest in the education of our children. That we invest in growing jobs in America. And don't pursue an irrational, across-the-board policy of cutting the highest priorities and the lowest priorities essentially the same percentage.... I think this is another proof of that -- if proof is needed, which I don't think frankly it is." 

"I doubt that [sequestration's] having any impact presently," he added, "and the reason for that, this is a priority item and I'm sure they're shifting what resources are necessary. Even if they're shorter resources than they otherwise would've had, I'm sure they're putting all the resources necessary on this effort. Certainly at the federal level -- I think the President's made that pretty clear."

Well I think Mr. Hoyer must have a problem, like Barack Obama does in remembering that sequestration was Obama's idea in the first place and second, that Obama continues to spend millions almost every month on vacations and wasteful government projects, instead of redirecting the funds to cover things he claims are more important. However, we all know what this is about. It's the political grandstanding that Democrats so often do at the expense of a tragedy. After all, they follow in the footsteps of Rahm Emanuel who declared, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." This is exactly what Hoyer is trying to capitalize on, just like the Socialist Democrats did to push gun control following the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

    Sure didn't take long for the trash we call democrats to open their mouths and stick their Florsheims into their pie holes.
    Does Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Dem MD) really believe this fertilizer he is spreading or is this just a massage for Odramas' derriere. Hoyer must buy mouthwash by the 55 gallon drum.

  • armydadtexas

    The minority whip is clearly delusional. He is one of the reasons America is having all the problems that we are. He is a FAR LEFT, RADICAL, EXTREMIST IDIOT. A leftist Blow Hard and an all around FOOL

    Wrong again- but not a surprize!! Truth is had the government been paying attention all along they would known it was an Islamic person(s) involved in this tragic Boston bombing, Islam is NOT compatible with a constitutional Republic, nor itself. It is a dictatorship with it;s leaders worshiped as gods- which they are not!! Their goal is world domination, NOT peace and harmony with fellow mankind. There are 2 kinds of Islamists: 1) radical active Islamists terrorizing the peoples of the world and 2) Inactive Islamists awaiting their time to be called into service to terrorize the world with the ultimate goal of world domination. NOT on my watch!!

    Hoyer is a joke - actually a bad one. He is nothing more than a leftist hack supporting the destruction of America as the sycophant of Pelosi and Obama. The whole political crowd is disgusting - everyone all turned out in high dollar threads, coiffed, blown dry and hairsprayed while blood drips from their fake smiles while they preen in front of the camera crowing over the destruction of America.

    A country run by fools is doomed to fail.

    Steny was born an idiot, he is an idiot today, and tomorow he will still be an idiot. To fund defense and security, just take from the ineffective departments: Education, NEA, EPA, and FEMA, Homeland Security (no security there).

    WHIP IS DRINKING TO MUCH OF DUMBO'S COOLAID IS WHY HE SAID WHAT HE DID

  • mike

    ...and look no further then politicians for the mess we are in, and the butt hurt we are in for....while they parade around like that actually give a hoot, they have an elitist attitude and some of the things that come from their blowers, I question their education.

    Pull your head out of your foul hole.

    As long as we are throwing out quickies for political hack, I believe it was done by congress to push for illegal immigration amnesty to save the US. I can put BS out as good as any congress person.

    "some of the sequester cuts were “irrational.”" just some of them when he is still spending millions on the Muslim Brotherhoods expansion world wide? How about all the cuts to his massive spending on vacations? And why did he not attend the Margret Thacher Funeral one of our few friends in the World and he snubs her like that.

  • fwiw

    Geez. Did Hoyer and Frank come up with this rhetoric during a pillow talk session? These 2 gladly follow the lead of the head Demagogue In Chief, or D.I.C., to cast anybody they disagree with as bad people who want others to die.

  • Bubblegum199

    This man clearly shows he is an idiot and it is time to get these old members of Congress out of office. Sequester had nothing to do with these bombings and the police, fire, and help from fellow Americans saved a lot of people from this horrible bombing.. It is time to replace all members of Congress with new, young and fresh ideas from those who believe in our Constitution and Bill of Rights

  • Cogito

    There are few words to discribe him. Fool, is the first to come to mind. How do people like him win elections? God, we deserve what we get.

  • rank

    He could be right about sequester. After all sequester was Obama's brain child, and Hoyer is a great example of a complete waste.
