    Dems are far from perfect, but they don't work 24/7 to sabotage the the infrastructure and then cry crododile tears over their own handiwork; remember, these are the smae jerks who want to kill social Security and privatize veterans benefits...By the way, Anderson Cooper 360 is still blocking all comments to every story posted-what's HE got to hide?!

    Laughable. Being an independent voter, I always listen to both sides. But the GOP really seems to have gone off the deep end the past few years (with the exception of a few like John McCain). Last time I checked, our president is not a dictator. It takes 3 branches of our government to work together to succeed.

    Congress had a chance to manage this in session and through that "useless Super panel " they created. In addition SecDef announced internal proposed cuts in Jan11 of over 100B. Debt ceiling fight failure forced additional triggered cuts. Both parties knew cuts needed to happen after 10+ years of free spending in fighting two wars. Executive and legislature branch played according to their rulebook. Dems blame Repubs for cuts, Repubs blame Dems but bottom line was to reduce spending through smoke and mirrors with each side able to say it wasn't us. #Howsoonweforget and how short our attention span.
