Looks like he has decided to shut the government down: Obama rejects latest Republican budget.



  • Has anyone else noticed Obama’s complete lack of leadership here? During 2008 people said that you couldn’t vote ‘present’ as President, yet that’s exactly what he’s done every time leadership and decision-making has been called for.

    Both sides claim not to want it to happen (a government shutdown), but neither side is doing much to prevent it. Instead, all their energies are spent in trying to convince voters that they’re not to blame for it.

    Here’s the real reason that professional politicians should do whatever they can to avoid a shutdown: After a few days of living without government, many Americans might just decide they don’t really miss it and could live with a lot less of it.
