Obama created the sequestor, BOTH the House AND the Senate approved it, and then Obama signed it into law. Geesh you liberals just get dumber and dumber don't you?

The fact is Obama should take credit for it if he were half as intelligent as he wants us to believe. It is actually a cut in spending, the only one he has agreed to since he took office although it was only because he didn't think the Republican's would take him up on it.

So we lesson the amount we are increasing spending. How is that a bad thing anyway? We have spent more in Obama's one term than any other time in history, including when at war.

Obama has admitted to creating the bill and Carney has admitted that it came from the White House along with other Democrats that have admitted to the bill being Obama's idea in the first place. Now why is it that it is so hard for you to just accept it?

Oh my, the worlds coming to an end, the sky is falling but there is still money for a swank dinner………..why not at the white house or the capital, both serve food. Shows sequester is a faux issue…..and it has caused Obama to drop to 43% approval.
Since Obama refuses to really give up anything, except in his speeches, there will always be gridlock.

Let's start with the tidal wave of deficit spending Princess Pelosi and Dickweed Reid started in 2008 with Lord Obama. If it weren't for the tea party and their check on the leftist rape of the federal treasury, we'd be looking like Greece already.

Unfortunately you parasites have tipped the balance. Lord Obama and the rest of the Socialist gang have signed up OVER 40,000,000 on food stamps, OVER 25% of public school children on free/reduced lunches, and in states like California ALMOST HALF of the households receive checks from the gubbermint. Now you can perpetuate your pathetic, underachieving lifestyle and vote in politicians that will pay you to sit on your a$$ all day.

What boggles my mind is you seem to be PROUD of your lack of intellect/work ethic. There was a day when panhandling for charity was humiliating. Now it's a political party. Do you go to social gatherings and brag about how little you've accomplished in your life?

Right...

Except of course the Tea Party did not exist in 2008, and the Congress passed ALL of those budget bills, including those proposed by President Bush.

Tell us: why oh why is the economy in the US improving every month if the sky is falling?

We've already prove that more people signed up under Bush, putting aside the crash- the recession- was and is part of Bush's legacy.

NO matter how hard you stomp your fat little feet, dear.
