    “As it happens, the sequester law is clear in requiring the F.A.A. and most other agencies to cut their programs by an even amount. That law was foisted on the public after Republicans demanded spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling in 2011. Since then, the party has rejected every offer to replace the sequester with a more sensible mix of cuts and revenue increases. Mr. Boehner is so proud of that strategy that he recently congratulated his party for sticking with the sequester and standing up to the president’s demands for tax increases.”

    You can pretend this schlock is Obama’s fault, and the RePubs aren’t simply slinging muddy blame, but it ain’t true. And Etch a Sketch aside, I believe the people will vote accordingly NEXT YEAR.

    The sequester originated in the White House and was overwhelmingly passed by the House and Senate. Everything after that is spin to deny their responsibility. I, for one, hold them all responsible for their ineptitude at finding a better solution and abhor their dishonesty in blaming everybody but themselves. Creating blame and laying it on someone else after the fact for something you are also responsible for is dishonorable and reprehensible.

    Wrong… the President cancelled the White House tours. Even when private citizens offered to cover the costs of the tours during spring break so that thousands of school children could take the tours, the Prez refused. He took his ball, got on AF1, and flew to the Bahamas, the ski resort and then to Denver for a 45-minute gun control speech. It’s not the sequester, stupid.

    @Ms. Ima

    Good point! And if you happen to be in the DC area, could you say hello to President Hillary Clinton for me?
    …oh, did you mean to imply a Republican would be elected? Only if that party gets over their addiction to elevating idiots and psychopaths to celebrity status.

    Ms Ima is right boys,- “Just wait kiddies, in 3 years there is a chance to visit a real President, not someone who acts like an unemployed white house occupier.”

    We can dump Obama, and his centrist republican actions, and replace him with an aggressive progressive who will do all the things we elected Obama to do in the first place!

    All members of the congress are equally culpable. Regardless of who is president, it is up to Congress to pass budgets, making whatever decisions are necessary to improve our economy. This has been going on for years, and the can keeps getting kicked. Remember the SuperCommittee? And what was going to happen if they didn’t deal with the problem? (nothing)

    Soon, we’ll talk about making a law to require Congress to do its job. One Congressman wants to have a Constitutional Amendment for a balanced budget. I say, if you have to get 2/3 of the Congress and 3/5 of the states to ratify something that requires you to do your job, you are so far from doing your job you have no right to have that job.

    Voting the bums out is the only option we have.

    It would make for a pleasant evening, but I think our disparate locations would make that difficult.
