Obama is as much responsible for sequestration as Bush Sr was for raising taxes.


That was a negotiated tax increase between Bush Sr. and Democratic congress. It was a compromise budget to fight off the growing deficits. He had to do it. And to his credit, he did. And paid for it.

It's not just Woodward.


I hope not, because that was a complete non-story

Serious question- is that actually what you think the article says?

Poll...

The public by nearly 2-1, 61-33 percent, supports cutting the overall budget along the lines of the sequester that took effect last Friday. But by nearly an identical margin, Americans in this ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose an eight percent across-the-board cut in military spending.


Seems defense spending is where most people are against.

Not sure what you are trying to say. I love George Bush Sr. and especially love Reagan. The problem is, this Republican party doesn't represent what those guys stood for anymore which is why I left it.

And the sequestering is and always has been about deficit reduction, which anyone telling you the truth will tell you that the only way to truly do that is through both increased revenue and spending cuts. One or the other won't do it, or would hurt the economy too severely.

The poll was asking if people supported an overall spending cut equal to the sequester. Once they started asking people if they supported the cuts that were actually made by the sequester, people no longer supported it.

If the summary of that is that the public supports the sequester, then...
