    "Eager to put pressure on Republican lawmakers to accept his blend of targeted cuts and tax increases Obama has been highlighting the impact of the automatic cuts in grim terms."

    Hey BO!, the repubs ALREADY accepted your tax hikes! When are you going to come up with the other side of the "blend of target cuts and tax hikes"?

    Quit campaigning and start acting like a leader!

    Another factor not mentioned is the Obama administration will chose to make cuts that they expect will cause the most pain in order to get support for their postion. When private industry has to deal with a reduced budget they cut where they feel it will have the LEAST impact. When a government agency, or the government as a whole, has to deal with a reduced budget they cut where it will have the MOST impact. The goal is to generate pressure to get their money back, not work within a reduced budget.
