Jessica Taylor: "Washington Republicans are getting little help from their friends in governor's mansions across the country. GOP governors aren't urging John Boehner to stand strong: they're calling for an end to the stalemate or ducking the shutdown issue entirely. That's the same strategy that Republican presidential hopefuls and lawmakers in tough 2014 races are following. As the shutdown goes on, the collateral damage will grow-along with voter anger at the GOP. Polls show that Americans blame the Republicans more than the Democrats or President Obama for causing the crisis."
