    Perhaps the GOP needs to rethink their strategy of shutting down government.

    Not sure what that has to do with anything. Congress controls spending. "shutting down govt", also known as not authorizing spending, is well within their power and purpose.

    The only thing that it's contrary to is our democracy. Republicans seem unaware of that, which is, I would guess, a fatal flaw.

    Government of, by, for the people governed.

    By a whole lot. Obama is closer to Biden than to Boehner.
