CNBC is running a poll on the Government shutdown...
So it’s actually 54% Dem blame, 46% Conservative blame...
The Donks are in big trouble...
The buck, or rather 27 cents in today’s market, stops at the usurper.
yep but Tea Party? Really? Tea Party of all of them have had NOTHING to do with this debt. NOTHING. but take the blame? whatever. People are stupid.
The Tea Party
So, if you add up the Dems (Obama and Congress), 54 percent believe that the Dems are responsible. Since the Tea Party doesn’t exactly have a vote it was dishonest to include it in the questions.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Whoops, read it too fast. CNBC poll.
FReeped. Now, you’ll excuse me while I disinfect my computer from the stench of going to a CNBC website!
Who is holding up the entire US Budget?
The US Senate
This is a terrible poll. The question is biased. Anyone with a basic understanding of poling can tell. The question presumes that a government shutdown is a bad thing. A good question should not carry that bias.
There should have been two questions:
1. Who bears the most responsibility for a government shutdown?
2. Do you view a government shutdown as a good or bad thing?
I’d like to see the results of that poll.
Wrong questions on the poll—imprudent spending from Congress and present/past Presidents is the cause. Spending without regard to the impact of our future—or lack thereof. Decades of malfeasance. Now the piper must be paid.
Freeped & BTTT
That is the narrative the media is going to push. Just watch.
Well,...are you surprised the Media isn’t honest?
Nothing like spiking the punch.
But then that's what the Liberal operatives posing as journalists do.
I’ve always contended the same was true in ‘95. The republicans were not BLAMED for the shutdown. They were RESPONSIBLE for the shutdown. Two completely different things.
So the Tea Party is now an arm of the government?
Typical liberal pseudo-news; trying to find someone to blame. I say who deserves the credit for trying to save the republic! Much better a temporary shut down of the government now as budgets and bureaucracies are reigned in, than a permanent shut down and bankruptcy later or worse.
