No, not really. On this particular subject there is no real rebuttal. Obama needs to own his involvement in this one.
There is a difference between "involvement" and sole responsibility.

You want Obama to be held solely responsible for sequestration and he is not.

Congress (meaning the republcan majority) has the power to avoid sequestration if they choose to make some reasonable cmporomises that don't put most of the burden of spending cuts on the poor and middle class.

My guesss is that republican leaders will join with democrats and make a deal.

The far right won't be happy about it, but the far right matters less and less when it comes to a governing majority these days.

If there are drastic, across the board cuts and real people feel the pain from it, the republicans in the house will get the lion's share of the blame.

Whatever you say honey. Now stop playing on the internet and help me feed the chickens. After we'll watch a movie and have some popcorn, I might even let you rub my feet again.

You can blame whom you want for the sequester crisis
Pretty much everyone agrees that it will be stupid and destructive to allow the sequestration cuts to go into effect and almost no one seems to believe that the players who would have compromise to prevent them from taking effect will do so. So, instead, we are distracting ourselves with a relatively pointless argument over whose idea it was in the first place.

"cmporomises"...beli eve it or not that was supposed to be compromises, republican was missing an "i" and guess had an extra "s" tacked on the end.

Will we ever chow down on kibble made for humans?

The humans of 2660 go to restaurants where they first inhale a gas that stimulates appetite and then eat dishes that have been liquefied and prepped for exquisite flavor with minimal mastication involved.

President Obama came up with sequestration — or automatic spending cuts — as a political tool to force Republicans to relent to a grand bargain as part of The Budget Control Act of 2011.
The Washington Post’s Bob Woodard had this exchange with Chris Wallace, host of “Fox News Sunday” on Feb. 17:
Wallace:“Bob, as the man who literally wrote the book about the budget battle, put this to rest. Whose idea was the sequester, and did you ever think that we'd actually get to this point?”
Woodward:“First, it was the White House. It was Obama and Jack Lew and Rob Nabors who went to the Democratic Leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, and said,'this is the solution.' But everyone has their fingerprints on this.”
Obama doubled down on the sequester back on Nov. 21, 2011, when he said this of Congress:
“My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one.”
http://www.newsmax.com/BradleyBlakeman/Obama -...
LIE #1:“The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed, it is something that Congress has proposed.”- Barack Hussein Obama

LIE #2:“There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger, it was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure.”- Jack Lew

[T]he 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.
