    Default How are you 'guessing'?

    Are you suspicious of a 'shutdown' happening this week?

    Eric Erickson of the Daily Events publication has this to say:


    The media in Washington is buzzing about a government shutdown. Only the media is blaming the Republicans. In reality, like in both Wisconsin and Indiana, it is the Democrats who are fleeing responsibility. The situation is getting so out of hand, I expect National Geographic to do a documentary on the migratory patterns of fleeing Democrat legislators.

    Because of 1995 and because of the Tea Party movement's desire to cut spending, the media would have us all believe it is the Republicans who want a shutdown. That is just not the case. The Washington GOP is fearful of a repeat of 1995. The Democrats, on the other hand, want a repeat of 1995.

    Democrats view 1995 as the moment Bill Clinton found his voice and started fighting back. They want that for Barack Obama. Never mind that Obama is no Clinton.
    Erick Erickson

    This is bound to be one of the most interesting weeks in USA history.

    They are playing a dangerous game of "political chicken", I hope that the voting public remembers those responsible if they do shut it down..We need to hold our elected officials responsible and accountable for their actions as well as their for them failing to do their jobs

    So what is the "dangerous" part, in your view?

    the Republican party is on the verge of taking back the Senate and could darn well take back the Presidency too, I would hate to see them gamble on the political capital they have accumulated and overplay their hand..Who benefits from a shut down...answer... no one

    A point made in a NY Times editorial ... why are we at this shutdown crisis? Because the Congress did not do their job on passing an appropriations bill last year.

    Who would have been responsible for failing to pass an appropriations bill before these new freshman Congresspeople ever got to Washington?

    The editorial made that point, but still blamed the freshmen for refusing to "cooperate" ... uh ...
