If one wanted to be honest about it, both parties own the sequester.

Whaddya know. Woodward does have a new book he's trying to sell.
It's been out for six months. And in case you haven't noticed, Jonathan Alter, Lanny Davis and a few others have made the same claim.

Perhaps, but you'll never hear that from the White House.

What is it with you and every thing being a lie? Can't someone rely on a different source or different perspective without it being a lie? You are pretty obsessive when it comes to that accusation.

Except that their fact-finding dates back to October.

The Daily Beast discoveries are more recent.

And even Politifact pretty much spreads the blame around--and makes clear that nobody ever intended for the sequester to remain in place.

Proof positive that Sequestration belongs to Obama:

AP kills word 'sequestration'

It hasn't even happened yet, but the Associated Press style gurus are killing the word "sequestration."

AP Style tip: use the term automatic budget cuts instead of sequestration, a jargon term.

Mark Steyn says it in his own inimitable way:

"In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble, but surely Bob Woodward is here to stay — or so we thought until he ventured some very mild criticism of the president’s negotiating technique, which appears to be a cross between a suicide-bomber and Cleavon Little taking himself hostage in Blazing Saddles. In a flash, Woodward’s four decades of loyal service were forgotten and the court eunuchs of the Obama media turned on their own: He’s about one news cycle away from being revealed as on the take from the Koch brothers and the real father of Trig Palin."

OK, proof positive that the Obama media lapdogs are terrified that Obama will be blamed.

More from Steyn:

"Speaking of the first lady’s Academy Awards appearance, I see she gave the Oscar for Best Film to Ben Affleck’s movie Argo. If you haven’t seen the picture, it’s about a group of government operatives whose ingenious plan to achieve their objectives depends on creating a fake movie as a cover story. Obama seems to have taken this inspiring tale to heart. In the Affleck version, the fake movie is a space opera for which John Goodman rustles up a few cheesy costume designs for some generic aliens. They make a promotional brochure, take out an ad in Variety, and hold a well-attended press conference, awash in cocktails and canapés. But there is no movie. And so it goes with Obama’s monthly cliffhangers. The White House press corps show up for the reception, and they all excitedly report the intriguing teasers about the white-knuckle thriller coming soon to your town: This weekend, Les Sequesterables, starring Maxine “I Dreamed a Dream” Waters and a cast of hundreds of millions of downtrodden laid-off extras; next week Zero Debt Thirty, in which Paul Ryan proposes cutting $30 from the federal budget and all civilized life comes to an end; next month Django Short-Changed, in which a retired bounty hunter discovers his Social Security check is a buck seventy-three lower than usual because cruel plantation owners like Mitt Romney aren’t willing to pay their fair share; and coming soon No Silver Linings Playbook, in which Barack Obama warns yet again that total societal collapse is just around the corner but at the eleventh hour manages to avert it by swooping in with a daring, last-minute tax increase."

I haven't heard Obama say that the world is going to end.
There are, however, some real elements contained in the sequester that people need to know about.
Recall that the point of the sequester [regardless of who you believe came up with the idea (Boehner)] was to set in place a default so undesireable that Congress would gain the motivation that they seem to have been lacking to tackle more sensible solutions.
Some folks are just slow learners.
the sequester is ash tray change.

this is one of many future spending cuts; and Obama being caught in lies.

did you find it funny reuters printed all the mean cuts Obama did all by himself.

he is not going to last 4 more years; and will be lucky to not be impeached in 2013.

Did you read the email exchange between those two men? It was very cordial. Only a paranoid conspiracy theorist, or a guy trying to boost his book sales, would find it threatening.

That's an odd dodge of the question. Can't you admit that both parties are responsible for the sequester?

no

the object was to cut spending, the congress passed a budget, the senate democrats tabled it.

the sequester has yet to cut spending, it cut the amount in growth of spending.

There still has not been cuts to the budget.

Remember we borrow $4 billion a day. Cut it to 2 this year, 1, the year after, then zero.

tighten the belt so to speak.

Even Woodward has publicly stated it was not threatening.
