I left a comment here yesterday and it disappeared. I said that the question was flawed because it didn't break down "Congress" into its component parts. I think that the right-wing fringe of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives is obviously to blame. I can't pick them without splashing mud on the other 75% of the house and 100% of the Senate.
Polls today show that 70 percent disapprove how Republicans have handled the budget. 61 percent disapprove of how Dems have handle it. And 51 percent disapprove of Obama's role. So, you're in the minority. Most believe they've all acted badly.
Mr. P and your echo machine, if you are not asking me to google the names of the radical teahadists that i think are to blame for the government shutdown, what are you asking? You cant just throw a word bomb into the blog and then claim im not answering your qusetion, what, exactly is your question? I said that i blamed the teahadists in the house. If you want me to name them individually, im sure i can. Is that your question, what are their names?
