    Just be sure to aim at the right targets when you shoot. Remember, 100% of the reason we have the sequester is the Republicans being complete and utter assholes. Obama used the sequester as a trick to get around them. They were convinced that stacks of Koch Bros $100 bills would ensure a Republican President would be in office in 2013 they went along with it. What did Boner say, he got "98% of what he wanted". Now they have to clean up the mess they created.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      Why do the Republicans have to clean up anything?  They are perfectly happy to let the country go to hell as long as their benefactors are happy.  The only thing they fear is that the rich military contractors will face cuts, but they are working to exempt the military from the cuts.

        It'll be with the tail pinned firmly on the elephant's ass this time. They know the public blames them for the sequester. Why do you think Reince Priebus (sp??) and Boner are desperately trying to push #Obamaquester? They know failure will hurt them politically. They bet big on Obama's defeat and now they're stuck. Sucks to be them.
