Why is there a picture of Boehner? Obama's the one who came up with sequestration. Obama is the one who signed it into law. Obama is the President, the "leader" of the country. Obama is the one deciding on what to cut through his Administrative powers. Obama is the one who decided to give Egypt $250 million and release 1000's of illegals. Obama is the one who decides how painful the cuts are. Boehner is just one of 435 Congressmen and can't control any of this.

"Why is there a picture of Boehner?" Because it is part of the liberal media's campaign to blame Republicans. Facts: 1) Economic growth for 4th quarter 2012 was NEGATIVE; 2) Fourth quarter 2012 mass layoffs were the highest in 3 years; 3) Thousands of good-paying middle-class jobs have already been destroyed as a direct result of Barack Obama's new medical device revenue tax, and this isn't factoring in all the other tax increases we have this year. The liberal media is trying to deflect blame away from Obama and onto Republicans for all the job losses which have already occurred, NONE of which are from spending cuts which did not take effect until March 2013.

Why is there a picture of Boehner? Because as the Majority leader in the House it is his crisis. Believe it.

Re:"Because as the Majority leader in the House it is his crisis." - The House is the only body to pass a solution to avoid sequester. Republicans have offered to give Obama flexibility on the cuts but he has rejected it because he doesn't want to take responsibility or a leadership role. He is only the President after all.
