You know what cracks me up? Listening to people on the street rake Obama over the coals one minute and pull out their free phones and food stamps the next. Even better, I know more than one couple that vote republican and hate liberal values while at the same time getting SSDI. As for sequestration? can't happen, too many politicians and their cronies stand to loose too much money for it to happen.

Ha ha ha! That is so funny, you really crack me up!
Just a few days ago, Obama told the Republicans they needed to compromise - by accepting the Democrats' plan. Excuse me, but that is not "compromise". That is "you do it my way and we'll pretend we met each other half way." The Republicans already compromised when the fiscal cliff was averted. It is time for Obama and his cronies to take responsibility for the sequester that OBAMA invented, marketed, and signed.
And remember, Obama is the man who proudly announced that the GOP could come along for the ride, but they would have to sit in the back. So please stop trying to tell us how Obama wants a compromise. You look silly.
The one looking silly is you. The republicans agreed to the sequestrian cuts if they didn't come to an agreement when they went to the table. It was Boehner who bragged that he got 98% of what he wanted. It was Paul Ryan who has been talking for years of how good a set sequestration should be in place that would automatically kick in. Now the republicans want to cry foul and put it on Obama.

Has Obama did everything he could to compromise? No. But don't sit there and act like republicans have been dying to work with Obama. It was their plan from the night of his inauguration that was put in place by Gingrich to obstruct everything. The GOP continues to move more and more to the right driven by the tea party. There is a reason he won re-election. The GOP is not where the majority of the country wants it to be. I would think that the republicans would be happy with the sequestration considering that they want the government to shrink and reduce spending.

Rebublicans will cry like babies should sequestration occur. The stand to lose millions in support from their cronies, ain't gonna happen.

Wow. I came here from Kentucky to give Va a good raking over the coals because of the hurrah's I seen on C-span from Oblahblah's speech to you all in Va. After reading the posts, its clear to me you don't need my raking, you get my HIGH FIVE!
I couldn't believe the crowd that was there. I now understand. Oblahblah busses in his own crowd. I should have known the "Great Pretender" couldn't even be trusted for ANY reason.
CARRY ON VIRGINIA!:)
