I don't understand how you're mixing up a base closure in New York with Hillary Clinton (you do realize that she's been Sec of State for the last four years?)and Barack Obama. I don't even see Fort (not Camp) Drum on the proposed base closings for BRAC in 2005, but there may be more info--if so, please share.

Yes, Obama did propose the sequester, but the Republicans signed on as well. Thinking, of course, that no one would be stupid enough to let it go through, yet that's exactly what's happened.

We can all wring our hands about it, but some half-a##ed solution will be agreed to in the next few weeks, simply putting a Band-Aid on the issue rather than fixing it.

Sorry, but I mostly blame Boehner and the Republicans on this one. The Republicans were so smug and so convinced that President Obama would not be re-elected, they never thought in a million years that they'd have to deal with it.
