CBS This Morning admitted Republicans "have a point" that the sequester's cuts could be smarter and more flexible. They went on to say that the White House was hoping Americans would protest from the pain inflicted by the cuts and demand a reversal of the sequester bill.

Yes, you can hear the shock in their voices when he says that.

 Really? Considering Barry contributed to this stupid idea, if not created it, and signed off on it, additionally he added a few of his own "ideas"....

It was orchestrated to hurt the GOP all it's done is hurt Barry, and the dems.

Maybe, if Barry stopped trying to 'take out' the GOP, and being malicious, he'd have more time to...oh..idk..RUN THE COUNTRY!?

We all knew this. The interesting thing about this is that a LIBERAL REPORTER made this comment to OTHER LIBERAL REPORTERS. No conservatives here!

Which is what  happened before, when the press needled Obama for playing the Gloom and Doom Sequester Game in late Feb/early March. And Obama and the Dems got smacked.

And then two months later,  they try it again?!

Hubris.

He has no idea how to run the country. He just likes the trappings and to give speeches with a teleprompter.

If there had been a way for Romney to do the work and Obama to get the glory, I don't think it would have bothered Mitt one bit. He likes to actually fix things so they work. Obama could give a rat's a$$ on whether things are fixed or work -he just likes to be worshipped.

The republicans offered up a bill to allow the cuts to be made wisely.  Obama refused it.  That says it all.  He will play politics to that degree at all our expenses.

They offered a bill that allowed Obama to make the cuts however he personally wanted them, wise or unwise, he ran screaming from it.

I'm guessing you:

1) Haven't flown in the past week or so.

2) Haven't tried to do a tour of the WH.

3) Been part of the military leadership that is trying to get enough security in the Gulf, but not crazy about leaving on of their aircraft carriers in the docks.

4) Been a senior who depend on Meals on Wheels.

5) Aren't 3-5 years old and can't go to Head Start.

6) Do not receive low income assistance,

7) Are not a civilian who works for the military - who got your pink slip in February and are subject to layoff June 1, if I'm not mistake. 

BTW, for some bizarre reason, the sequester apparently does not decrease the hiring of federal government employees. Somehow I think there is a better use of $2 million than hiring  more government workers. And I'm pretty sure extravagant WH parties, and 50 or so golf outings a year, are also NOT on the chopping block. And Obama hasn't offered to accept $1 in salary - since he is a multimillionaire - so he can feel our pain.
