    Except Obama proposed sequestration because Tea Partiers in the House refused to compromise on increased tax income, even those by closing loopholes.

    And the GOP-controlled House voted to pass the sequestration plan as a law even though Obama proposed it.

    And the Tea Partiers favor reduced government spending, which is what is being done with sequestration. So when will the Tea Partiers give Obama the credit for reducing government spending?

    I think I have the game plan figured out. All that I need to do is plant peas...that will guarantee that the weather will turn hot immediately, they will be courageously honorable and die, and the rest of the garden can start growing. I will then wait till August to replant the brave peas.. Sound about right?

    It does. I have no doubt that in a week or so it'll get hot, the broccoli will bolt in spite of my best efforts, and the rest of the garden will actually start to grow. I think you're on to something here.

    Call me and I'll be happy to say that I don't have the vaguest notion how sequestration is affecting me. Is it affecting you? Is it affecting anybody here today?

    Now the administration is now boasting that the debt is shrinking (in growth, not the actual debt). So apparently it's a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Since you quote HuffPo, how about Fox to even things out.

    If this is true, why are Obamas approval numbers still so high?

    You must be getting calls from much brighter pollsters than I am. My callers have rigid standards of response and often I can't answer y/n or rate 1/10. There's no room for subtlety and thus I distrust the outcomes.

    The "polls" that bother me most are the younger students drug use percentages. I try to imagine asking a 15 year old "have you used cocaine in the last 7 days?" or similar and actually get the response "sure, don't tell my mom". So IMHO they make most of this crap up.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    And if a pollster decides that your interview was somehow biased they'll toss it out and replace it with an non-biased interview.

    That all depends who's polls your looking at. If you average all of the polls Obama gets a 48.4 % approval rating and a 47.5 % disapproval.

    Then you have polls like CNN who also poll illegal aliens. Then there are those who believe if they disapprove of Obama they will be called a racist. Then there's the uninformed and most of them tend to have voted for Obama.

    Maybe a better indicator of how Americans approve or disapprove of Obama is this question. Direction of the country. Right direction 31.7 % Wrong direction 59.2 %

    Sooooo, how are these 40% being effected then? Kind of a worthless poll if that follow up question wasnt asked. For my part, I have not been effected, nor do i know anyone affected or seen any signs anywhere of any effects of sequestration at all.
