  1. "“It’s Trump — they’re going to blame me no matter what” the president told aides on Friday." https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/20/inside-government-shutdown-congress-trump-352222 Well, there are those comments Donny made about the president before he occupied the White House. Maybe he forgot what he said, but being a stable genius you would think that he would remember. Perhaps he forgot that he is the president now. Or just maybe he is a hypocrite.
  2. Really guards you say? I am sure that you have a link for that, because living in the area I don't seem to recall that occurring, maybe I missed something.
  3. If the Rs had done their job long ago instead of a series of CRs, then there would not have been even an opportunity for a shut down. Yet here we are.
  4. The job of congress is to set a budget. They have had all the time in the world to have done their job and they failed. The GOP controls the House, Senate and the White House, and yet someone you see it as the fault of the Democrats. You must be a republican, as the GOP has clearly shown, they don't accept responsibility.
  5. Democrats or Republicans doesn't really matter, it was a failure of leadership, Trump has even said so.
  6. "The stock market has rallied during Donald Trump’s presidency, with the S&P 500 up nearly 24% during Trump’s first year in office. But here’s a surprise: It did even better during President Obama’s first year, rising 35.3%." https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/stocks-better-obamas-first-year-trumps-172431950.html Donny is not going to like that, bested by Obama yet again.
  7. Donny Trump 2011 - "In my opinion – you know, I hear the Democrats are going to be blamed and the Republicans are going to be blamed. I actually think the president would be blamed. If there is a shutdown, and it’s not going to be a horrible shutdown because, as you know, things will sort of keep going…. If there is a shutdown I think it would be a tremendously negative mark on the president of the United States. He’s the one that has to get people together." https://www.salon.com/2018/01/20/trump-blames-democrats-for-government-shutdown/ Donny Trump 2018 - "Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead." Donny is quite the hypocrite. You would think that being a stable genius he claims to be, he would have remember saying that.
  8. "“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top,” Trump said. “I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader." http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/369756-trumps-comments-blaming-obama-for-2013-government-shutdown-resurface More thing from 2013. Does this mean that even Donny thinks he should resign. Time for Trump to act presidential and actually lead instead of just tweeting.
  9. No, it isn't, but if they had actually done the job that they were hired (elected) to do this situation would not have occurred.
  10. "“The shutdown rests at the feet of the GOP and it appears a majority of Americans agree” Michael Steele is a former chairperson of the Republican National Committee." https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/01/20/who-will-america-blame-216487 Even the former chair of the RNC gets it.
  11. A much better way to run it is to have had a budget in place when it was due. Wouldn't you agree?
  12. Perhaps you are correct and maybe it is a shallow thing of actually being on the internet.
  13. Lindsey Graham voted no, and one reason was "it's the worst way in the world to run the military and the government in general." http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/369380-graham-to-oppose-short-term-house-funding-measure And I agree with him.
  14. A CR is merely kicking the can down the road, so to speak, to be used when you can't actually do the job you were elected to do.
