  • If the sequester cuts turn out to be not bad...

    ...will the republicans stop trying to blame Obama for the cuts, or will they try to take credit for them?

    The GOP has been making a concerted effort over the last 2 months to pin the sequester blame on Obama. They assumed the markets would tank, and Obama would take a political hit.

    But so far, the markets have responded with a resounding "meh", and we will not know about the jobs impact for a few months or so.

    If the sequester turns out to not effect the economy, and actually reduces the deficit - will the GOP flip-flop and try to claim credit?

    Will the Democrats try to claim credit?

      Both sides will take credit if it is successful. And the sheeple in each party will believe them. Same as it ever was.

    OP is creating drama where none exist.

    Obama is the one going around saying the sky is falling, and is actively trying to make sure the cuts happen in areas where people would feel them vs areas where people may not.

    And since the cuts have little to impact in the grand scheme of things, neither party has any business taking "credit".

     

    Get back with me when the budget is balanced, then we'll have something to celebrate.

    Michael Medved was discussing this very thing last week. He said that if the sequester kicks in and "nothin bad happens", it's gonna make Obama and his handlers' chicken little predictions look silly. As he suggested, the worst thing that could happen to Obama's credibility is for the sequester to go into effect and the sun continues to set in the west, and people continue to by stuff and go to work.

      BA: I believe both sides are concerned that little effect will be felt, since both sides like to spend money.
