On CNN last night with host Piers Morgan, former CBS broadcaster Dan Rather explained that the sequestration cuts was proof that the political leaders were failing America.

Listen, nobody wants to say it and some can accuse me of the harshness of the language, but we have been parachuting into the ‘Valley of the Stupid.’” Rather said bluntly. “And that’s the way it’s viewed around the world. The United States . . . this is dumb.”

Rather blamed Republicans for creating the controversy to boost their chances  in the 2014 midterm elections.

“The Republicans want to wreck the Obama presidency, metaphorically, they want his administration to move from ‘lame duck’ to ‘dead duck,’” Rather concluded.
