    Dose anybody remember when the GW Bush administration would not allow any images of our fallen servicemen and woman's coffins to be seen . It wasn't till a leaked photo that showed the returning coffins in the back of a cargo jet at Dover AFB .

    That is one reason , I will ever vote Republican again .

    Ted Cruz = Joe McCarthy

    Those effects were ORCHESTRATED by Obama to make it APPEAR that the people should demand an end to the shut down.

    It is ENTIRELY political theater.
