    It's just a shame that the media narrative will never play out that way.  If and when government gets shut down it will be reported as Obama and the Dems fault.

    The difference between 1994 and today is that the democratic leadership has no idea how o frame their argument and the media (and Fox) are complicit in failing to report the facts.  How else do you explain my Republican friends voting against Obama because he is fiscally "out of control" when in fact the government is running smaller deficit is today than under Bush's last year and a lot of the deficit is continuation of stimulus from Bush era collapse and from continuing Bush era wars.

    The facts no longer matter.
