    Respect to those who can see through the partisanship, like those Dems who slammed the Obama admin for the NSA spying and drone strikes. Good for you. I'll keep an eye on your future posts and treat them in the light of this sensible attitude.

    Well, if a President wants more than the House wants to give him? He reminds me of a child, that wants his allowance but not cut the grass.

Something needs to be done with healthcare and while Obamacare isn't perfect it's a start and maybe we should give it a try and if it doesn't work, then fix it.
    I think you are totally right that the problems should have been solved earlier. But Obama did not want to delay his epochal project, though such delay is the condition the House made for his budget. It is the Presidents job to spend the money the House allows him and it seems to be constitutional to attach conditions. I think it pretty sick to allow a government shutdown and a temporary stop on all programs because the House wants to delay one program. But the same goes for the House. They could have acted against their better judgement and didn't.

    It's relevant because this thread is about which party is more to blame.

    Clearly, Republicans are. 8 out of 10 people say so.

    A poll makes it true? Perhaps there is hope for the Flat Earth Society after all.

    A poll represents how people, in general, feel at the time the poll is taken.

    Currently 8 out of 10 feel that Republicans, at least in part, are to blame.

    Now while this forum poll is pretty meaningless because it's an unscientific online poll restricted to visitors of this site, it does reflect the numbers we're seeing from actual scientific polling.

    I watched all three network news anchors blame the GOP. Gee, I wonder what the sheeple will say when asked

    Reality has a liberal bias.

    That's because Republicans are to blame. But don't more people watch Fox?
