    One of them or a combo of the Senate and POTUS will have to blink first. It has to end at some point. Not really looking for any debate about it. Just wondering what everyone thinks about it.
    The fact you make a thread about who will blink first, highlights, just how polarized America has become.

    I'd refine it a bit. Most Republicans don't want this fight. It is a handful of very 'safe' very right wing Congressmen who's districts are gerrymandered to be bullet proof from democrat contenders and got the seat by being Tea Party right wing 'purists'. They are on the horns of a dilemma. Show ANY compromise and a new radical right pretender will depose him. The GOP senate support is a mile wide and a coat of paint deep.

    The TPs are attempting to get through the back door what they couldn't get through the front door. Their idea of 'compromise' is to cherry pick what parts of the budget they want to see continued and leave the ACA behind.

    Typical CON game, they refuse to see ANYTHING they disagree with as legitimate. We see this all the time in the 2nd A debates where some hyperpartisans refuse to see those who disagree with them as 'real' Americans.

    You have to resort to the CON dictionary to understand what the TPs want- when they say the President must come to them and 'negotiate', what they mean is the President must crawl to them and give them all they want.

    Not gonna happen.

    Is funny to see CONs claiming President Obama caves in so much when they also claim he is THE MOST abusive of the Constitution, and call him 'KING', "TYRANT', 'The Chosen One'... and all that crap....

    Bipolar CON politics....

    I say the house.The mainstream media has their mouths around the democrat party's cock.The mainstream media is placing blame solely on the republicans.Low information voters listen to the mainstream media and therefore will be influenced by mainstream media and will start calling their elected officials to cave.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    From Fox News:


    White House disavows quote that 'it doesn't really matter' how long impasse lasts


    Published October 04, 2013

    FoxNews.com

    WASHINGTON – The White House is pushing back on a reported comment by a senior administration official that it doesn't matter how long the partial government suspension lasts.

    On Friday, the Wall Street Journal quoted a senior administration official who said, "We are winning. ... It doesn't really matter to us" how long the partial shutdown lasts "because what matters is the end result."

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney later tweeted: "We utterly disavow idea WH doesn't care when it ends. House should act now, no strings."

    But by then, the WSJ quote had already become fodder for Republicans.

He gets more air time, he gets more listeners, so eventually I think Americans will begin to "blame" Republicans forcing them to cave in to save themselves politically.

    On the flip side though I hope I'm wrong, and I think if the Republicans are active about getting their reasons, message, and facts that they have sent in numberous resolutions that were struck down by party lines in the Senate with a promised veto by Obama they can discuss how really they aren't the ones driving the shut down and that they have put good effort forward to pass bills that Obama and Senate Dems rejected.
    Yes, it is very problematic whenever Obama speaks the partisan language that is first nature to the Tea Party hacks.
