Please Freep KSAT (San Antonio) re Who's to Blame
KSAT 12 News website ^

Posted on 09/30/2013 1:46:40 PM PDT by KGeorge

Who is to blame if there is a government shutdown?

At this moment it is a dead tie 39-39%. 22% say both.

Poll is at the bottom right of the page.


TOPICS: Government; News/Current Events; US: Texas
KEYWORDS: governmentshutdown
San Antonio has a LOT of democrats (not to mention our darling mayor (/s), but KSAT has a lot of conservatives. We could use the backup.

Thanks!

Go ahead and do, if it makes you happy. I’m irritated by the constant “blame” thing and IMO it leads nowhere in terms of convincing LI voters. We know what we have to do and there’s essentially no chance of convincing the other side “why” because the “whys” we would cite do not launch logical thought processes. It’s much like our positioning with Muslims. They operate on a (for want of a better word) logic system that does not compute with us, and we them.

We do not fear a shutdown, and wouldn’t choose to cite it as some kind of boogeyman that causes all these ripple effects because most of us do not care about whatever government would launch against us it it were open and when it IS open. We know the FF&C of the US is not an issue and is not in question.

I believe when we engage in this we ratify the placing of blame which is an extension of “it’s not my fault”. That’s what I am saying.

Right. I was gonna ask. Just exactly who IS to blame if the FedGov shuts down?

Better question might be... who is to be given CREDIT if the shutdown occurs?

Well, as with most polls, the choices suck.

I broke it down like this:
The Senate, I think, is most to blame here. Being that it is Democrat controlled, I chose Democrats.

The House, being Republican controlled, is doing what they are supposed to, according to the Constitution. They are listening to and doing the will of the people (for the most part).

Being the Obama hasn’t really done squat on this issue, I don’t see blame on him...yet. But, he is vowing to veto anything defunding Obamacare (or anything added/taken away by the House). And directive IS coming from Valerie Jarrett to shut down the govt, so...

All in all...Democrats take this, hands down. Those that are the spineless Republicans, know who they are, and better be prepared to pack up their office soon.
