    What a joke. Shutdown???? Bwhahahaha. Don't trust the GOTP at all and now OBAMA is approaching that same status. Not even going to bother with "President" anymore. Not that I want a shutdown, but this whole thing has been nothing but a media event. One side is not better then the other. Obama is no better then Boehner.
