Grumpy Old Party Shuts Down the Government

Washington Post was wrong yesterday, both sides are not responsible for the current government shutdown. Ever since Barack  Obama was elected President, a small minority has not accepted him as legitimate. They and their representatives in the Congress and the State Houses have waged a cold civil war since Obama’s inaugural and now they want to burn down the global economy out of spite. If Obama and the Democrats agree to whatever impossible demands GOP is making this time what stops them from making even more ludicrous demands when a new budget needs to be passed or the debt limit needs to be raised again. Nothing.

James Fallows, here and here, this morning’s NYT editorial and Andrew Sullivan tell it like it is.
