Headache awaits Obama post election

(CNN) – As far as bill signings at the White House go, President Obama on Tuesday signed the Sequestration Transparency Act to little fanfare.

But the legislation, which passed the Senate by unanimous consent and the House by a 414-2 margin last month, could prove to be a major headache for the president come late November, whether or not he is reelected.

    Obama is brilliant playing political hardball, playing people, he'll find a way to get out of this. If there is one thing for sure with Obama is that he does not like transparency and in reality we don't know much about the man. This is the guy that invented an excuse as to not let us see his college transcripts so we don't really know if he is as smart as the media made him out to be. Seriously, if you have really good, top grades why not show them to us.

    The last thing Obama wants to do is to actually have to manage tax dollars. How dare they.
    His main areas of involvement include spending and raising taxes. Managing is such a bother. Aren't there other people who can take care of those details? ( Yes. Mitt Romney is one of them. That's one of the reasons American voters will elect him this November ).

    Republicans are a major headache to America. While the GOP is trying to make us a third world country, Obama is our only hope.

    If the teapublicans had actually bothered to let taxes return to normal levels for the upper income levels, then there would be less of an issue. I agree that there still need to be cuts in spending, but the military needs to do more to keep its contractors honest and know where their money goes.
