    If the GOP insists on payng the present game, the President should send every Federal Employee, including military home twenty four hours after the vote. Give them what they want, minimum federal government.

    That would be the last time Americans ever elect a Democrat, so go right ahead: destroy the Democrat party. I urge you to do it.

    The blame will rest squarely on the shoulders of the Republicans/T-Partiers.

    Wonder if there would be a garage sale? I'd love to have some of the Capital gym equipment..

    Does that mean "no school" on Monday? Oh wait -- it's summer vacation. Let's start with the Dept of Ed?

    No it won't. Plus, I don't really care. As soon as people tire of the GOP, people will swing back to the Dems. After the last 8 years, the GOP should have been marginalized and a fringe party. However, the defunct Dems have only empowered them.

    The cycle continues...

    That's exactly right. We saw that with the last government shutdown.

    How so? Will Obama hold a press conference and claim the Republicans made him do it?

    Democrat political theory is indistinguishable from playground ethics.
