    Remember that?  For weeks, he has been trying to pin these cuts on President Obama.  

    According to Boehner, the President "demanded" the sequester.  (But Boehner got 98% of what he wanted, so he was pretty happy.)

    In one segment, Boehner proclaimed the President had gotten his big tax hikes, that President Obama had RAISED taxes.  In another segment, Boehner crowed that he was able to CUT taxes for 98.5% of taxpayers.

    Is it any wonder the American public is confused?  The GOP is always allowed to have it both ways (i.e.  Romney/Ryan campaign of lies).

    It will be interesting to see how the GOP campaigns on this in 2014.  Will they see it as a plus because they were able to cut spending?  If they do, will they give credit to President Obama, since it was, after all, his idea?

    Or will they campaign against it because of the pain and misery to the lower/middle class as well as the harm to the economy?  

    My guess is they will alternate their message (Mon-Wed-Fri=For Sequester; Tue-Thu-Sat=Against Sequester; Sunday=Toss Up).
