      1.  The sequester was the idea of Jack Lew on behalf of the administration.

      2.  When the economy goes down, people -- correctly or not -- tend to blame the President.  Most people in this country don't know who John Boehner is.  

      I think the President's speech was clearly an attempt to blame the Republicans for any economic downturn that happens if the sequester goes through.  I'm not all that convinced that it will work.  We'll see, I suppose, since I think it is becoming increasingly likely that the sequester will happen.

        as Samuel L. Jackson likes to say.  I especially want this to hurt the military.  People just do not understand how much they get from government, it needs to hurt before they identify their role in the mess and get really angry.  You vote stupid, you get stupid.
