Which one is the "they'll vote for an extension to put off the vote for another 3 months"? Is that option #1?

"President Obama and the Democrats—far from winning a public opinion "blame game"—are sadly playing directly into the hands of a Republican Party hell bent on pushing an economic austerity agenda on the country at a time when the exact opposite course is needed."…

Everything will be fine. No need to worry. After we've wrecked the economy again, and blamed it on the halfrican in the White House, we shall again reclaim our rightful place in control of this nation, and prosperity will once again trickle down all over the faces of the unwashed masses.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

@6 - Well, it's not like Obama and his pro-austerity cabinet and his catfood commission haven't pushed the deficit crisis narrative just like the 1% and their media.

Ugh... The Shock Doctrine wasn't an instruction manual, you ass-hats[in the House].

Really, no ordinary person knows what sequestration is and Obama and the Democrats are going to have a hard time blaming sequestration if/when they make a deal cutting any entitlements. The Dems have only themselves to blame for following Obama's voluntary journey into that corner. Wait till the next election cycle when Republicans are campaigning on "Obama cut Social Security" or Medicare or whatever.

The second poll reveals that more sloggers are coming to their senses.

The entire $1.2 trillion in Sequestration 'cuts' should be understood that they are not really cuts at all...

They are really a lowering of the projected INCREASE in federal spending going forward.

In simple terms, if an agency's budget is $100, and they are expecting an increase of $10.00 next year, but they only get $8.00, Dumbocrat politicians characterize that as a $2.00 cut in spending. (Queue the Chicken Little quote).
