    But numbers for everybody are dropping sharply. Best outcome we can hope for here is that a third party will rise up because of all this BS.
    I sit corrected

(Something that you conveniently always leave out....why so Con? Don't want to accept any of the responsibility for the debt on behalf of your hero?
    No, didn't leave it out at all, the debt was 5.7 trillion when he took office and when he left it was 10.6 trillion that is a 4.9 trillion dollar debt. 1 trillion of that was due to 9/11 or are you one of those liberals who said they wouldn't forget but did? Obama took office with a 10.6 trillion debt that is now approaching 17 trillion. Bush added that debt in 8 years, Obama added his in 5. Your numbers and mine are very close but mine are accurate according to the Treasury Dept site I gave you but here it is again.

    Debt to the Penny (Daily History Search Application)

    This will give you deficit by day and you can see the debt on January 21, 2009

    Here is the yearly debt

    Government - Historical Debt Outstanding Annual

    Since the taxpayers pay debt service on the debt it would benefit you if you copied these links and used them in the future to prevent yourself from looking foolish.

    Yep.

    I think it's good for the people to see that the shutdown will not cause the sky to fall.

    Yep.

    Stories like that do appeal to those wanting a Nanny state.

    Luckily, most people don't want a nanny state.

    I am happy with my Rep, how about you? Seriously do Congressional poll numbers really mean anything? Love how people tout those numbers as meaningful. Maybe you have Sheila Jackson Lee, I have Kevin Brady. Does it really matter what the NY polled individuals think of my Representative?

    Most people don't want to get sick because the food was not checked things like somonella.

    And people don't want to get sick from measles because no one knew there was a vaccine for it.

    Congress plays a big part but ultimately it is judged by the President's policies and ability to promote his agenda. People like Conservative want to put ALL of the blame on the President when the President is a Democrat....and all of the blame on Congress when the President is a Republican.

    Any one who doesn't realize that negative revenue is chronically low-balled by the CBO and positive revenues are chronically hyped...

    They are novices to politics.

    Never trust CBO projections.

    Your opinion noted however you have yet to prove that any of the data I have posted is false. I can beat you to death all day with verifiable data showing you to be exactly who you are, a typical third party whiner.

    Doesn't matter. People don't like the end result. Period. It takes one hell of a lot of douche baggery to end up with 5 percent approval.
