    You poll is flawed with only two choices, you should also have C. None of the above and D. Both major parties. I would have chosen D.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    How can anyone not say it was Obama when Jay Carney said the idea originated with Obama and his administration

    I do not think the president cares on iota whether sequester goes into effect or not. I think he is just using this as a means to try to force the Republicans to give him another tax rate increase. If I understand sequester right, the president as CINC has the authority to move those funds around to meet the needs of national security. On the domestic side, I am not so sure but I would assume that too he can shift funds around.

    You're right. Obama has far, far more latitude than either he or the media have mentioned. He has chosen those he parades in front of the camera intentionally.

    BTW I think both sides voted for sequestration, so how is it only one sides fault?

    Why isnt that an option?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    *tough choices* ,*gasp* , and popularity were the three best choices available..and you used them all! Kudos....
