Posted on 04/08/2011 9:56:21 AM PDT by Minus_The_Bear
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.
The Tea Party (Huh? Yeah, that TEA Party is really powerful in lobbyistland.)

Where is the choice for Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats?
I want a poll on which state leaves the Union first. I am thinking it may be the state of Utah. They are setting up Gold for legal tender.
The only group that doesn't get to vote on this issue is the TEA party. We do however, get to vote every November and every spring time in primaries and local events.
That’s odd... They didn’t have Bush on the list.
Let's put it another way. You decide if you want to buy a product. If you go to a store, and a salesman, say named Barry Soreto--or whatever--wants to sell you a bed room suite, and you agree to buy it, but he then refuses to sell it unless you also buy a house full of furniture. What do you do? Naturally, you refuse. Now who is responsible for the sale falling through?
I am not too hopeful that the media will ever acknowledge the obvious. But maybe, just maybe, with Tea Party influence, the Republicans will someday learn how to fight the compulsion driven neurotics in an Academic/Media complex that spins every issue to suit that compulsion that drives their lunacy.

BO is the head of the snake. He is the head scavenger for the demrat party. Never forget, BO was foisted on the public by the demorats and if the head of the snake is removed the rest of the rats will shrivel and die.
I see this has morphed into a feds paying for abortion debate but I remember Obama in an interview saying that that CANT happen so if that was true what is the big deal in putting into to law again.
