With the sequester the Republicans bought control of the US economy. The resulting recession is on the GOP.

Nice attempt to spin. The party in charge of the Oval Office gets the credit, and the blame.

The Republicans are already sliding father down in the polls, which is scarcely possible as low as they are now.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove

Fifty-one percent (51%) of all voters give the president good or excellent marks for handling national security issues. Forty-four percent (44%) say the same about his handling of the U.S. economy.

Most voters believe it is at least somewhat important to reduce income inequality and support free market policies. Forty-seven percent (47%) say policies to allow and encourage free market competition are Very Important. Thirty-six percent (36%) say the same about reducing the income gap between rich and poor. Given a choice, 49% believe free markets are more important. Thirty-nine percent (39%) place a higher priority on reducing income inequality.

(From the 5 point biased Rasmussen Polls)

You left this part of the Rasmussen poll out, Today’s figures include 30% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9 (see trends).

That's a madeup stat. the 51% stat is the real story here - when you add the 5 point Rasmussen bias in, that is a 56% approval rating!

The sequestration was Obama's plan. He lied about it during the debate in October, and he's lying about it now.

When Obama ran in 2008 he called Bush immoral and unpatriotic for running up the national debt by $5 trillion in almost 8 years. Obama has run it up by $6.5 trillion in half that time.

The sequestration calls for cuts of about 2%. Those cuts can be made without setting prisoners free and without reducing security, IF the administration wishes to do so. They appafently care more about politics than the well-being of the country. The US would be better off with minor budget cuts than with more borrowing from China. Think how wonderful our lives will be when the US defaults on those loans from China.
