  •  Julie Pace was spot on. (0+ / 0-)

    Her question to the president seemed to (accurately) call-out the president for his obvious complicity in the current sequestration debacle.

    As we're all aware, this legislation could not have been enacted without approval by both houses of congress and the signature of the president.  Yet, the Republicans and the president choose to finger-point at each other, in a lame attempt to deflect responsibility for the suffering that is about to befall the most vulnerable Americans.

    Yes, Mr. President, we're aware you got into bed with a bunch of skunks when you brokered this election year "kick the can down the road" strategy.  But we also know, as you do, that the skunks didn't suddenly morph from bunny rabbits.  At least step-up and accept your share of blame for the position you now find yourself in.

    "The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain." --George McGovern
