    In His Hometown of Chicago, a Policy Speech by Obama Turns Personal
    By JACKIE CALMES
    Published: February 15, 2013

    CHICAGO — President Obama came home on Friday for a policy speech that inevitably turned personal: He spoke of teaching law nearby, meeting his wife, Michelle, raising their daughters less than a mile away and then, most recently, watching the first lady return for the funeral of a vivacious teenager gunned down in a park.

    State Officials Still In The Dark On Possible Sequester Cuts
    February 26, 2013
    by Karen Kasler
    Statehouse Bureau Chief, Ohio Public Radio and Television

    A series of automatic federal budget cuts known as the sequester looms at the end of the week, and the White House has put out a list of how those cuts might affect Ohio. But the only thing that’s clear about the possible sequester is there’s a lot of confusion.

    Hmm…so huge cuts really don’t make a significant dent in the deficit. Almost like they’d need to be accompanied by additional revenue to work…

    LOL…yes, the Budget Control Act of 2011…legislation…was created by the executive branch, not the legislative branch.

    I mean, despite the fact that 80% of House Republicans voted for it and only 50% of House Democrats. Despite the fact that Boehner said the bill gave him 98% of what he wanted. Despite the fact the entire thing was done because of Republicans holding the debt ceiling hostage in the first place, while Congress allowed the previous president to raise it 5 times to double it during his two terms without forcing him to assign spending cuts. Despite the fact the first sequester was done under Reagan in 1986…

    Yes, despite all that…this is clearly “Obama’s Sequester”.
