Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI):
"... Very important for people to understand that what was NOT included in the sequestration were those programs, those mandatory programs: Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, food stamps, Pell grants. And what the Republicans would love to see is for this president to serve up on a silver platter these programs, and not just make some changes in them, but structural changes to undermine the programs. ... Ultimately, in order to end the sequester, that is the demand that they're making on the president, that he make structural changes to Medicare and Social Security."
The GOP is on the losing side of every issue and they know it. They become more desperate each day, so they resort to blaming President Obama for anything and everything while sticking to the same old policies that lost them the election in November.
They know America stands firmly with the Dems, but that won't stop them from trying to destroy the very programs that the poor, sick, and elderly depend on so that their top 1% buddies can get their tax breaks. America first!
As I've written over and over again, Republicans are masters of that old Rovian tactic called projection. If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s taking your candidate’s (or anyone’s) weaknesses and attributing them to the opposition.
Now a very desperate, very laughable Karl Rove is projecting again, but this time nobody's buying it. He sank to a new low (Is that even possible?), pathetically accusing Team Obama of -- wait for it-- voter suppression. Yes, you read that right. Watch him sliming his way to irrelevance on Fox:
As Think Progress points out, President Obama got more popular and electoral votes than Willard M. Romney and "grew his margins within certain voting blocks." Some disenfranchisement, huh?
Rove dug himself into another Fox hole. This happened:

When Fox mocks you, you know you're in trouble.

Ryan Teague Beckwith rounds up electoral maps from nine political prognosticators, all of which see President Obama winning re-election with anywhere from 281 to 332 electoral votes.
