The same southern GOP Governors who were telling us that the sequester was the only solution and praising its virtues are suddenly singing another tune with a tropical storm headed their way:

Quote
With Tropical Storm Chantal headed for South Florida with landfall likely Saturday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott is sounding alarm bells about the impact of National Guard furloughs on state storm preparations. “The problem is you’re losing training time, you’re losing preparation time,” Scott said during a radio interview in Jacksonville. “When will the National Guard make the decision that we stop the furloughs? Right after the hurricane hits?”

Guess what genius, spending cuts and lower levels of preparedness are what you get when you demand that the sequestration be put into place.  Oh wait, it gets better.  Their solution?  Write a letter to Obama urging him to call off the furloughs...that they demanded:

Quote
Scott joined with two other Southern Republican governors whose states are in the path of tropical storms to write a letter to President Obama urging him to call off the furloughs. In Florida, nearly 1,000 employees of the National Guard are furloughed once a week, saving the federal government money under the congressionally mandated sequester but costing the state in readiness.

These assholes are just too much.  Apparently cutting spending is all well and good until something directly affects them, then it's running back to daddy crying for help.  Bunch of utter buffoons.
