Right, because the economy was so great before he took office, and by ignoring the fact that it took 33 years to get here; you're playing into the end game. If you don't think both parties aren't to blame, you really need to wake up. Fire them all

I would add that we are looking at gobs and gobs of corporate profits and stock indexes that have recovered since the '08 debacle.(The DOW at record highs).

Keep blaming the "politicians" if you all want. But when the US working folk are played for suckers, its not by the politicians. The economy is just fine. But the corporates do better by squeezing the life out of their skeletal work forces rather than hiring.(WalMart has been in the news for this kind of thing recently - stores going downhill simply b/c they have a policy where managers get bonuses by minimizing labor costs. One of the common users of Medicaid? WalMart workers. Yes - workers).

The more you blame politicians, the bigger sucker you are.

you get a gold star, a green check mark, and a lit light bulb.

We are, in the end, a nation of idiots; swayed by pundits and politicians that are in the back pocket of corporations.

Great place to live if you are a doctor or a lawyer. Not many worthwhile oportunities for anyone else.

I don't see hiring a few for government labor jobs solving the inherent problem.

Of course both parties deserve blame. But the question now is what will get the US back on the track of job growth and prosperity?

Obama's policies are taking us in the wrong direction. Four more years of this and we'll look like Argentina or the Eurozone.

Get your facts straight!

With March 1 just days away and the financial Armageddon known as “sequester” about to kick in, President Obama continues his pathetic attempt to blame Republicans for the quagmire that bears Obama’s personal mark of incompetence, instantly recognizable by the immature, illogical nature of arguments advanced.


Former White House chief of staff Jack Lew with his ex-boss

Thanks to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, Obama’s latest lying campaign is being exposed.

Woodward’s column includes the following:

Misunderstanding, misstatements and all the classic contortions of partisan message management surround the sequester, the term for the $85 billion in ugly and largely irrational federal spending cuts set by law to begin Friday.

What is the non-budget wonk to make of this? Who is responsible? What really happened?

The finger-pointing began during the third presidential debate last fall, on Oct. 22, when President Obama blamed Congress.“The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed,” Obama said.“It is something that Congress has proposed.”

The White House chief of staff at the time, Jack Lew, who had been budget director during the negotiations that set up the sequester in 2011, backed up the president two days later.

“There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger,” Lew said while campaigning in Florida. It “was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure.”

The president and Lew had this wrong. My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.

Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.

Nabors has told others that they checked with the president before going to see Reid. A mandatory sequester was the only action-forcing mechanism they could devise. Nabors has said,“We didn’t actually think it would be that hard to convince them”— Reid and the Republicans — to adopt the sequester.“It really was the only thing we had. There was not a lot of other options left on the table.”

A majority of Republicans did vote for the Budget Control Act that summer, which included the sequester. Key Republican staffers said they didn’t even initially know what a sequester was — because the concept stemmed from the budget wars of the 1980s, when they were not in government.

At the Feb. 13 Senate Finance Committee hearing on Lew’s nomination to become Treasury secretary, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) asked Lew about the account in my book:“Woodward credits you with originating the plan for sequestration. Was he right or wrong?”

“It’s a little more complicated than that,” Lew responded,“and even in his account, it was a little more complicated than that. We were in a negotiation where the failure would have meant the default of the government of the United States.”

“Did you make the suggestion?” Burr asked.

“Well, what I did was said that with all other options closed, we needed to look for an option where we could agree on how to resolve our differences. And we went back to the 1984 plan that Senator [Phil] Gramm and Senator [Warren] Rudman worked on and said that that would be a basis for having a consequence that would be so unacceptable to everyone that we would be able to get action.”
