    but this one, IMHO - is on him.  He should have never signed off on the cuts as they were - he can keep saying he didn't think it would ever come to this - he can try to place blame on others (which he should) but he has to also accept responsibility for this mess.  Quite frankly, I think he doesn't mind the sequester happening...he's a political opportunist so he'll use it or try to use it to his advantage but I'm thinking he could care less.

    •  Frankly? I think that there are MANY Democrats in (4+ / 0-)

      office in DC who are not unhappy that the Sequester went into effect.

      It cut a chunk out of the DOD that the "I can't have a vote, we don't have enough to win" crowd (whom have apparently never heard of the process of "try, try again" until you DO win) never dreamed of getting the chance to do.

      The fact that similar-relatively-sized cuts would come out of programs that the poor & young and old & sick depend upon for basic subsistence in many cases, that was an afterthought, and not one which bothered anyone "important" for any significant length of time.
