At the third presidential debate, Barack Obama said the upcoming sequester was a bad idea and he would make sure it doesn’t happen. But the very next morning, in an off-the-record interview with the Des Moines Register, he touted the sequester as central to his deficit reduction plans.
So Obama lied; the only question is to whom.
UPDATE: Obama also lied about whose idea the sequester was. He said Republicans insisted on it, when it fact it originated with the Obama administration and with Harry Reid.
