Sequestration? That's the law as Congress passed it, not something the President set up, and it applies to lots of stuff beyond military. I think what President Obama was saying is, "Yeah, Congress did it but they will undo it, not even Congress is that irresponsible to let it stay in place."
Funny, I thought President Obama won the 2nd debate going away, and that the 3rd was a draw. Everybody else seems to say the opposite.
On Libya, Syria, Israel, Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan there was a startling repeated pattern:
1. Romney criticized Obama.
2. Obama replied with his position and reasoning.
3. Romney repeated Obama's position and reasoning point by point, in slightly different words, as his own position.
4. Obama criticized Romney for things he had previously said.
5. Romney said he didn't say that.
If you just listened to Obama's position followed by Romney's position, in all these foreign policy areas, you would say it was not a debate at all, just lots of agreement. Later when they went back to mudslinging about domestic policy, neither one said very much that was concrete, just "I can do it better than you can, but I'm not going into any details on how I'm going to do it."
Best part of the whole debate was, I had been up for 18 hours by the time it finished, so I slept well.
