    What really went down?

    Did anyone really think the government was going to shut down? It all seems like a big song and dance to bottom anymore. There's no sides just the fleecing of us. I would like to understand what really went down an what it really meant to Americans besides scaring hard workers like my wife into thinking we might not be able to afford child care next month.

    John Boehner threw a tantrum and cried a lot, while Obama filp-flopped and the Treasury printed some more currency in order to foot the bill.

    I'm so much interested in the dance steps, but why there was a ball in the first place.

    GOP didn't want to fund clean air or planned parenthood, so they did what they typically do - argued against something that's less than 1% of anything worthwhile.

    Dems argued for something that's less than 1% of anything worthwhile, while typically doing what they do by blowing things out of proportion.

    All in all, I've crafted new criteria for whomever may get by vote again.

    Thanks I guess. I'm just trying to get an idea if there was anything of REAL consequence in danger. Only reason I'm asking here is because I don't trust any news sources anymore. Guess I'll start comparing and drawing my own conclusion.

    If you were in a military family, you would have been directly affected. Payment would have been delayed or stalled. If you were EPA, you would be looking at lengthy furloughs. If you were a politician... you would probably still get paid on time, if not more.

    I picked the wrong profession. Only politicians and pimps get paid during recessions it seems.

    I like Krugmans summary
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/11/op...gman&seid=auto

    It's been Obama's game plan for awhile so why stop now.

    obama's plan cant get anything done. republicans stop him at every opportunity. It's less about the people and more about getting their way.

    He had two years of a democratically controlled congress. If he's getting stopped...it's not due to any partisan reason.

    I read your link. I see it as neither Grand nor Compromise.

    @HR
    I agree, however I blame both Obama and Pelosi for the first two. Whilst I blame Obama for the current situation. He should know better by now. If your tactics are failing then change your tactics.

    On another forum we had a discussion about impeachment. Personally I'm all for it. Republicans would never impeach Obama he's too useful as a punching bag. I doubt they would want to go toe to toe with Biden.

    Won't be as scary as when Donald Trump chooses Meat Loaf as his running mate...

    Meat Loaf going up against Gary Busey... seriously, that's about as ballsy as it gets.
