Stop the finger pointing over budget cuts

The president says sequestration is “dumb.” If so, then why did he previously sign the bill that set up this scenario, and why has he been out on the campaign trail the past two weeks trying to convince Americans that what he wants is best?
Wouldn’t it make more sense to stay in Washington working on solutions with Congress?
The “dumb” part is all the finger pointing going on, and doing nothing to make some common-sense agreements. The budget needs to be cut to stop the run-away deficit, but it is best to use a scalpel, not a chain saw cutting straight across the board.
