    Of course the House gave O the option of targeting the cuts, but he refused because he wants maximum damage to the American people so he can once again blame somebody else for his failures.

    So what is your response? Or are you just in the bag for Obama no matter what he does?

    Republicans certainly need to bear their fair share of responsibility for the sequester, but so should the Democrats in the 112th Congress. They voted 45 Yea, 6 Nay in the Senate on the sequester. Oddly, 19 Republicans voted against sequester.

    Conveniently omitting the fact that the House would have obstructed our Presidents options as they have done so often in the past..
    So, this is just another lie from the “right”…You may well be able to fool fools, Conserve…

    The GOP is offering Obama the “opportunity” to take the blame for whatever gets cut. Nice move! Obama is still trying to get the GOP to negotiate on revenue. That’s the sticking point. The President has been trying to reach out to individual Republicans, which is an encouraging sign.

    If we really want to make a long term cut in the deficit, we have to increase revenue, which is still far below historical norms. We need sensible cuts, but we need more revenue. It’s also not like the Sequester cuts are enough by themselves. They don’t deal with healthcare, which is the biggest driver behind the long term deficit.

    OK Unk, let’s think about this for a second.

    Obama says that the cuts are going to be done with a “meat ax” and so the house introduces a bill that will allow the president more “flexibility” (evidently a good thing when dealing with the russians) and his response is to vow to veto the legislation. Sure, they DID offer Obama the chance to “take responsibility” for the sequester cuts. And what a great opportunity that would have been to show the American people that yes he CAN make a budget and yes he CAN manage it. But nope. Rather point fingers than make hard decisions.

    Hillery was right to ask about the 3AM phone call.

    REpublicans were all for increasing revenue with tax code reform, but again, Obama insisted on a tax rate increase and “bargained” for it by making those tax rates for the under 450K crowd “permanent”. Hmmmm, just how smart was that move.

    Now he wants the tax code reform too. ( I happen to agree)

    So yeah what there are doing is all theater and has no substance. But Obama is as much to blame as anyone on the stage.

    Isn’t politics wonderful? Just “pick a side”, and the “other guys” are “all to blame”. Reminds me of the religious nutso who always began his postings – on another website’s forum – with a reference to “debate/discussion” that went: “First, we have to all agree that what I have presented is the only absolutely correct presentation, and then we’ll discuss the matter.” (Of course, he was also a Republican; but, then again . . . .)

    The Sequester is Onasma’s idea. He broke a deal with the GOP to get it. Enjoy.

    Again with the faux noise? Of course the rethuglicans didn’t hold the country hostage either.
