The emerging meme that Obama is the mastermind behind this sequester mess should be kept in perspective. The sequester grew out of GOP cowardice. Let’s not forget that the sequester came into existence during the fight after the fight after the fight where Boehner and the boys were really going to stick it to Obama.
The GOP squandered all of the Tea Party momentum from the 2010 elections in the spring of 2011 when they punted on the budget. The 2011 debt ceiling was supposed to be the Alamo. It turned into Dunkirk and we’ve been on the run since.
However this latest contrived crisis is resolved the futility and the pusillanimity of Republican leadership should never be forgotten. More conservatives. Effective conservatives. That needs to be the theme for 2014.
