    Re: Who would you blame?

    Normally Congress takes the hit on things like this but in this political climate I'm not so sure. The country is already heavily in debt and to propose increased spending in some areas and a pittance of a decrease in other areas just seems silly. November was people saying enough is enough. The President will take a direct hit if he allows the government shutdown. The Republicans have to stand their ground or lose out big in the next election. Obama for all intents and purposes is a cooked goose. Unless the Republicans nominate Mubarek he's gone.

    If the government does shut down, it would exemplify the pissing match you describe and how none of them really care... The worst thing about seeing the government shut down, would to see them reopen it and go back to work. If they have to shut the government down, then we should get to reelect new leaders... bs. If they can't keep the government running, then they are absolutely useless as political leaders and absolute failures.

    I think that Obama would have to be a slight favorite. People have made it clear with the recent elections that spending at the top of the priority and he continues to request a massive budget?

    I'd blame government for being stupid.

    While it will be both of their faults, Obama will not face the wrath of constiuents that the Republicans will. Are we forgetting that we have saw this show before? It did not work out well for the GOP then either.
