  • The world did not end the minute the "sequester cuts" went into effect. The president had to do something to cause angst and alarm among the population. Stand up like a man and admit that he'd made a mistake by putting the sequester on the table last year only to have his bluff called? No, he went immediately into attack/blame mode.

    Of course it wasn't his "fault" that the Congress voted on his proposal, or let it become fact, it was those horrible Republicans. A plan to punish the great "unwashed" population. He would refuse to allow the "people" to tour their/his house ... that'll teach them to defy his will.
    When all that did was upset schoolchildren, he had to do something. Refuse to allow any of the government agencies to use their own judgment when it comes to handling their budgets. Force them to bend to his will, force the FAA to furlough air traffic controllers. Not sensibly, but all at once so that it disrupts the country.
    Never fear, the White House planned this. The sequester does not actually cut anything. It just slows down the increases. There is plenty of money; they just aren't "allowed" to use it. — P. Moran, Medford
