    Rove is sayin it. Boehner is saying it. But the tea party still doesn't get it.

    let me know how that works out for you.

    "White House political strategist Karl Rove yesterday confidently predicted that the Republican Party would hold the House and the Senate in next month’s elections, dismissing fallout from the sex scandal involving former Rep. Mark Foley"

    Rove foresees GOP victory - Washington Times

    he's a whiz at predicting things....

    "Democrats are fanning fears of a government shutdown on the belief that they would benefit politically, but they could be making a dangerous assumption."

    In 1995, Republicans controlled the House and the Senate, as opposed to the divided Congress of today. The GOP has only a third of the decision-making power in this scenario, making it much harder to pin the blame on them.

    Rove is not going to approve of anything that doesn't involve more government, and more government intrusion. The schemer behind big government conservatism.

    I don't see how you can blame any of this on the Republicans as they've made every effort to keep their promises and to provide opportunities to continue the government running until a resolution could be made. Reid and Obama dropped the ball here. and let's not forget it was the Democrats who failed to provide a budget when they had Congress to begin with.

    You can do the government shutdown thinking it only helps you politically, but you seriously are naive.

    I think the Reps are the winner in this one.

    They have a budget and are trying to cut spending. What they are proposing doesn't go far enough.

    The Dems are playing politics in the hopes of a shut down and the Reps being blamed.

    I think this move is gonna backfire on them and OL'BO as well.
