Memos have been issued, statements have been made in private. You are correct, this sequester is not all damning as made out by the President. But the President NEEDS it to be all damning.
But many invested in the President now feel compelled to support his position even though they know it to be false. Either they have that spouse mentality where you support them even when you know they are wrong, or they don't want to be told they made a mistake when they voted, or they simply are deluded and will follow the man barefoot through every shard of broken glass strewn before them.
