    Conservative pundit David Brooks pointed out that the sequester was deliberately crafted to be SO idiotic in its mindless (instead of targeted) spending cuts, that Congress would HAVE to go back and get it right, later. It turns out he was far too optimistic in his assessment of the collective I.Q. of Congress! The art in this one is Oliphant at his most impressive. It could be a great poster.

    The house has to pass a resonable bi-partisan budget.
    We’re all doomed.

    Personally, I would have liked every single person who attended the White House Correspondents Dinner to have been delayed while on the tarmac for four hours….

    That said, the reason this was “reviewed” so quickly was (a) Congressmen/women have to get home every weekend .. Originally, D.C. was severely affected, so they exempted themselves, and their airports. This didn’t go over well with the voting/flying public. and
    (b)Obama and Democrats were taking more heat than they thought they would. They thought they could pin the whole thing on Republicans, but polls showed they blamed not only both parties, but the President. That was a problem.

    It’s purely political. (I had plenty more, but I’ve got to go. “What difference does it make”. ~ Hillary Clinton

    Obama can offer suggestions but it really is Congress’ duty and job to pass budgets, enact laws, … Put the blame where it really belongs.

    The sequester is another result of the republican party attempting to make the Obama administration a failed administration, as per there very own statements prior to his first term and again after his re-election. They have once again blocked an attempt of the President, i.e., to make the rich and corporations their pay their share of taxes; In creating the sequester they have made a “smaller” government and nobody wants it.

    @Robert Landers

    The idea of sequester was hatched by tow of Obama’s Staffers who pushed him to push it to The Senate and House for a Vote. They told Obama The House would not go for it as it cut defense. The Senate passed the Sequester 1st, and The House called Obama’s Bluff and Obama signed Te Sequester Bill. He also took it upon himself to implement The Sequester as it appeared Congress (House and Senate) would not do so. NBC Has Video Tape of Obama making this statement: “I Vow to Veto any Bill that alters the Sequester as written in any form, shape or fashion.”

    Sorry, this is indeed Obama’s fault as he could have told his staffers they were full of it and fired them for making a stupid suggestion… He also had the Option of Vetoing The Sequester Bill as there were not enough votes to overturn the Veto.

    @Uncle Joe
