How It Appears Today With the Clouds of Distrust, Division, Turmoil
In Reality How It Really Is Seen From Above
Here's how crappy things are become with this mess: On October 3, 2013: In the afternoon, CNN the removed its shutdown clock for coverage of chaotic Washington car chase. But, by 8 p.m., it was back.
On the other hand, FOX has a typical FOX approach to covering things like this -- simply pretend it's not a shutdown or problem or issue at at all (unless FOX sets the standard for coverage). According to them, it's more of a slimdown - whatever that means.
Of course, Bätshït Crazy Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) - the TEA "party" ultra conservative, took a slightly different linguistic approach, saying "It’s actually a slowdown.
And, this keeper from CNSNews – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) says he would not include language to defund Obama-care in the continuing resolution (CR) bill when it returns to the House, stating, our goal is not to shut down the government. That presumes he has the DEM support he claims to have.
However, the GOP is playing with fire, or more apropos Russian roulette but with the public's head not their own.
