    This is the only reason to keep that fucking sequester thing. That's it. This is the last piece of power that Republicans can hold onto, and they'll use it -- even if it hurts them.

    What they fail to understand is that Barack Obama wasn't talking about "government" in its classic sense. Obama is saying that the vast majority of Americans are so on his side on everything -- that we will simply steamroll over anything that Republicans want.

    If they think that they can effect any real change -- if they think that they have any power -- then we will have to prove them wrong. We can do that -- because we have the greatest leader of free people that civilization has ever seen.

    We have Barack Obama.

    And they don't.
