Are you asking whose fault it will be or who will be blamed?

IMO playing the "blame game" is pointless. They're all stubborn and want their ways -- if anything it will reflect poorly on congress in general rather than one party (or, if you stick to the poll, one party-controlled legislature) or the other. This whole event signals to me that they're pretty much all useless.

Those who elected the clowns to begin with and the special interest groups who provide the KY jelly so they can screw us all.

There's one crucial option missing: Corporate interests.

All of the special interests are a given. Corporate, labor and others.

I see that this is a public poll. This may skew the results you get.

Yes David, at the very least it will limit the amount of data to be collected. I felt though, that it might be more meaningful data if the voters have to go on record with their opinion.

I'm no polster, so I'm not sure exactly what the effect will be, but it should be interesting.

Let's get crystal clear about this folks:

NO ONE but the president of the United States has the power to; "shut down the Gov't."

IF the Gov't is "shut down" it will be Barack Hussein Obama that DID the "shutting down." of it!

Although anything is possible.........I disagree.

Around here, making a POLL public, then has the extra insurance of accountability to reference.

Let's be clear - voting is voluntary, and not changeable.

Accountability? Just exactly how do you plan to hold those who participate in this poll accountable?
