It’s weird that President Obama is suddenly against the sequester considering he came up with the idea and threatened to veto House Republicans’ attempts to replace it. Twitter took notice:

Carney says notion pushed byGOP “spin doctors” pushing that Obama proposed the sequester “is a fanciful confection.”

Sounds like Carney is calling award-winning journalist Bob Woodward a liar. Conservatives were quick to provide evidence of Carney’s misinformation.
For those not familiar, Jack Lew, proposing the sequester here, was the President's budget director at the time. http://t.co/cOTBUTI6

Obama's soooo mad at Republicans for letting him propose this sequester in 2011.

The Hill: "White House warns sequester would disrupt life of nation" http://t.co/9CMm60fc // So then why did the Obama admin propose it?

So when you hear the POTUS say that if the sequester is triggered it is going to hurt the economy… it was his idea. #obamaquester

He can’t run away from the documented truth. It’s Obama’s sequester.
