  •  That's what we were told at the time, eh. (13+ / 0-)
    The sequester was supposed to be so crazystupid that it would force the GOP to wise up.
    Funny how that worked out in the end. The "crazystupid" crowd got some of the austerity they craved by simply doing what they do best, nothing.

      They agreed on this with Repubicans, supposedly to save us from national default.  Giving crazystupid people what they want in order to get a hostage back is always sound governing practice.  I'm sure we'll see more sound governing practice when the criminals and paste-eaters get back from their summer breaks.

      •  if the sequester was 11 dimensional chess (0+ / 0-)

        i'd hate to see this administrations other moves.  things like the sequester certainly do tarnish the government and make it difficult to appreciate the good things done such as ACA, dropping defense of DADT/DOMA, etc.

        i mean, socially the admin has been a blessing and a relief over the bush years.  but its the economic part that has been screwing us over.  

        it's just too damn bad we all have to live in the economy.
