His whole agenda is to stimulate the economy, get the middle class working again, prevent cuts and elimination of middle class programs. The republican agenda is "small government" no matter how much that hurts working America. All I'm saying is stand up and defend your positions. If you want these cuts say so and quit trying to blame everyone else. You republicans wanted these cuts, then you turn around and say these sequester cuts are the Presidents fault (a total lie). If that were the case, why aren't you giving him credit for giving you the cuts you wanted? Don't you think it's a little hypocritical to want something then slam the person you think gave it to you?

They didn’t trust Mitt and they won’t trust Rubio, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan or any other right wing republican in 2014 and 2016. The republicans need to quit being used car salesmen and say they support these cuts, the President and the democrats don’t, and let the American people decide down the road whot was right. POSTED BY: TMFERRETTI | FEBRUARY 22, 2013, 12:53 PM You act like Obama got 99% of the vote. Just for your info, the vote was closer to 51/49. And you call Republicans used car salesmen, but your man Obama has been busted on so many lies it is pathetic. Obama could say the cow jumped over the moon, and I believe you'd probably defend that load of malarky as well!

All of them under estimated the stupidity of the right wingers. Now it doesn't matter. The President and the democrats have always been opposed to these deep spending cuts, and they continue to be opposed to them. These cuts were not the democrat’s idea; they were the republican’s idea to implement their "small government" policies. Now that the republicans see the devastation to the economy their foolish policies will cause, they are trying to con the American people into believing they had nothing to do with it.

Against all odds we are actually going to see a cut in the growth of the federal government. The nonsense coming out of the white house (2nd rate military power, Washington Monument is coming down, Zombies are taking over) is proof that we are on the right track.
