Obama’s paychecks are similar to the paychecks of Congress — it isn’t the paycheck, it’s the perks.

Each gets a $multi-million amount of perks for staff, drapes, paperclips, etc.

As this article notes, and as I (and others) noted in a thread on this yesterday, this "exemption" is Constitutionally mandated. Article 2, Section 1, Clause 7 of the Constitution states that:

The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

Short of a Constitutional amendment, no law (including the law that set forth the "sequester") can diminish the salary of the President. Following the ratification of the 27th Amendment, the same is true of Congress, by the way - the sequester doesn't (and can't) touch their salaries either.
