This man refuses to take any responsibility for the economy; its always the GOP's fault for his lack of ability to be a leader. If LBJ were alive, he would slap the back of Obama's head and say:"Be the President!".

Oh my gosh Allan...That's actually insulting to LBJ even..as *Dubya* still to this very day holds the title for taking no responsibility for his words or actions...From all accounts that I've read..not doing so for his entire life, not just while he was on duty...as 'acting ' president..... during the Corporate Coup that his Wall Street and oil rich Muslim Saudi Royal buds... and other assorted Corporate bosses.... were being handed control of our government by his administration.

Obama is right...the thing is to move forward despite the Sequester. That will come back on the GOP in the upcoming elections ,costing them to lose more of them. Teabagers and other rightwing extremist might want to forget about all this by then but the majority of the rest of us...moderate Republicans encluded.... I'm wagering, will not.

obama and reid put this together and got it passed. they just didn't think in a game of chicken since obama moved the goal posts the gop would let him go off the cliff. this isn't the end of the world. it's past time to cleanup the fed. it's bloated and full of waste. this is now the chance to do it. programs and departments that are worth paying for can be kept the others need to go.
the tax payers that keep our country alive have taken lots bigger hits to their budgets than are even in this plan. suck it up and clean up the mess in dc. it's time for obama and his gang to stop whining and do their jobs.

of course obama and his cabinet will make sure they only cut what's really needed so they can stand there and say i told you we needed all of it. i would love to see the fools do the right thing for once. won't happen with the leadership we have now to bad.

With every cut ; is the end of jobs and puts more stress on families and makes beggars out of most of us. You may see it as saving dollars but that money is going straight into the pockets of the rich thru a tax cut. So keep thinking it is solving a problem .. that started in solving the debacle wallstreet created.. Now instead of helping the rest of us.. We have NDAA and the patriot act and a new policing department and of course drone a thon for all of us.
Clean what up? Jokes on us.

Sorry, Allan, it IS the GOP's fault - from the moment Turtle Mitch McConnell said Obama would not serve a second term right up to all of Congress running away from Washington so they don't have to deal with the sequester. If the President has only spoiled brats to deal with, he is wise to let them stew and move on.

Noted and read article. Thank You for posting Nancy. In my opinion President Obama is doing what has to be done, and moving on.

"He did it. She did it. They did it. God did it.

I didn't do nothin'."

Psychology 101

It's called giving away your cause and that's a no no.

If I blame Mom for the way I turned out, I am saying Mom did it to me. Mom is the only one who can fix me.
And she won't. WAH!!!

Pathetic as in contemptable.

I want Hillary for President. She took the blame on herself even though it
really wasn't hers.

This is what happens when a country has poor leadership and in our case no leadership at all. "Teflon" Obama doesn't want to be anywhere near "blame." We saw what happened to Hillary Clinton in the Benghazi situation. And, Zee, you are right, Hillary took the blame on the cuff. Oh, the books that are going to be written once Obama leaves the White House!

Both parties have good ideas for the good of our country. The problem is that Obama is a "loner" and doesn't interact with congress. He isn't a problem solver. He isn't a leader. All he can do is get in front of a camera every day spewing lies. The American people will let Obama know how they feel about his lack of leadership skills in November 2014.
