DeMint: Obama ‘has lost contact with reality’

Republicans should let the sequester proceed if President Obama won’t let the defense cuts be eased, and Obama is simply out of touch with reality on fiscal matters, according to former U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, S.C.

DeMint resigned his seat in January as he prepares to become the new president of the Heritage Foundation. In a wide-ranging interview, DeMint addressed looming debates on guns and immigration, but he’s also passionate about how the current sequestration fight plays out. DeMint told WND House GOP members have responsibly approved changes in sequestration so the cuts won’t land so hard on national security spending, and the ball is now in Obama’s court.

“If we can’t get the president to come off the military cuts, we need to leave these cuts in place,” DeMint said. “In most cases, it’s not really cuts. It’s just a slowing of the growth of spending which has been out of control for years. I would encourage Republicans, if the president’s not going to be reasonable about restoring military funding and allowing these other programs to actually be reduced, then they’re just going to have to swallow it. It’s a small percent of our total budget and, frankly, we’re going to have to do a lot more of these cuts if we’re going to balance the budget within 10 years.”

    LOST contact?!? This is a guy who never had a real job in his life and went to an elitist school (paid for how?).

    He's got no more contact with reality than the current nut running North Korea.

    It is interesting how everyone talks about how these cuts will hurt the middle class. NEWS FLASH! the only middle class were the wealthy that had smart accountants, all of the middle class are now poor & that has been happening for a while. We have always had to pay usually to private companies ,now they have to pay what we do. But I am upset more of our money is not staying in this country & business 's are getting machine's to do the work people did, ,& we must suffer. If we all boycott every business that uses machines
    & outsource. Only deal with people in the U.S.that would change, Remember the way a company used to treat you as a customer?

    Face it the clown is living in George Soros wet dream. Obama is delusional and I think is mentally ill. But you have the progressives love them whatever path of the sewer he takes them down and us for that fact. Four years proved to be a failure and now another four years WOW. We are in deep DODO

    It's only fear tactics when it's about cuts to air-traffic controllers, but when it's about the military, it's not. So be scared. If the cuts to the military happen, we all need to board up our houses because we will no longer be safe. Right? http://www.thefiscaltimes.com...

    You can't lose contact with reality, when you never had a clue about it to begin with...

    He is smoking so much pot that he has no idea where he is.
    He just reads whatever in on the screen in front of him.

    How can you have lost contact with something you never got in the first place. Now he is playing "Chicken Little" and people aren't buying his BS anymore.
  • Bill 2013/02/23 14:38:21
    OHummer lost control of reality when he was a teen. Why hasn't he been thrown out of The White House already?
  • Buzzymuzzwelle 2013/02/23 14:34:44
    Obama knows exactly what he's doing. If Demint doesn't know that then he's
    out of touch with reality. Obama wants to destroy the very fabric of American society.

    It is idealogy over the 'best interest of the nation' with Obama; avoid that which actually works for that which sounds good.

    But could you name just one conservative/Republican who is not full of grits? Actually, they are all politicians and we have never elected a saint.
  • BlackwinterG36C 2013/02/23 11:26:46
    Obama has been put of touch of reality his whole life. His parents were Marxists and he was educated by more Anti-American Marxists. And his pastor is an anti-white anti-american collectivist. What can you expect from a man who has been sheltered from reality and believes he has a mandate to do anything he wants.

    The problems keep getting bigger and bigger with no solutions to any of it in sight. When you can't fulfill the promises of the people who back you. Along with newer problems coming up and no resources. He's pissing off the whole country either with Obamacare or his gun grabbing. He in DEEP DO-DO! So reality bites.
