    There aint nothing going to stick to old "Mr. Slick"

    You really have to hand it to "Mr. Slick", the man has jewels the size of basket balls.

    In his Saturday address he said:

    o "This week, the sequester hurt travelers, who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes, and rightly frustrated by it. And, maybe because they fly home each weekend, the members of Congress who insisted these cuts take hold finally realized that they actually apply to them too,"

    o "So Congress passed a temporary fix. A Band-Aid. But these cuts are scheduled to keep falling across other parts of the government that provide vital services for the American people,"

    o "There is only one way to truly fix the sequester: by replacing it before it causes further damage,"

    o They may not feel the pain felt by kids kicked off Head Start, or the 750,000 Americans projected to lose their jobs because of these cuts, or the long-term unemployed who will be further hurt by them. But that pain is real,"

    So based upon the above remarks and his disdain for law makers, my expectation is that "Mr. Slick" will refuse to sign the bill when it is presented to him.

    That would show true leadership and the strength of his convictions.

    Or do you think he will use his time tested tactic of bad mouthing congress, quietly signing the bill into law, and then jetting off on Air Force 1 for a golf date with the Tiger.

    I guess we will see, but if I was a betting man I would pick the latter, because nothing sticks to old "Mr. Slick".

    "In your heart you know he is right."
